/UCW/ SAN DIEGO, CA – Medical Marijuana, Inc. (OTC PINK: MJNA), the first publicly traded cannabis company in the United States, subsidiary, HempMeds Brasil™ today announced that it has recently received global coverage and recognition for the company’s strides in the country of Brazil.
HempMeds Brasil™ is the first company to offer legal medicinal cannabis products to Brazil after receiving import approval to those suffering from specific medical conditions. The company’s array of coverage features a variety of stories highlighting HempMeds Brasil™ growth, team expansion, and product success.
Over the last year, the company has seen exponential growth. This was no more apparent than when the Brazilian government approved HempMeds Brasil™ products as a prescription medication for import into the country. In a historic step forward for the nation of Brazil, and the cannabis industry, HempMeds Brasil™ was permitted to provide Real Scientific Hemp Oil™ (RSHO™) under approval for medical indications. The groundbreaking announcement was reported on around the globe, and stood as a defining mark for HempMeds Brasil™. This decision came at the hands of Brazil’s National Health Surveillance Agency, ANIVISA. As reported by Povo and Veja.com, the result of the monumental import agreement now permits any resident of Brazil who has a government-approved medical indication to gain access to RSHO Hemp Oil Products™.
“We have so much to be proud of and even more to look forward to,” continued Dr. Titus. “The goal of our company is and always has been to put an end to the needless suffering of those around the world. We have set our sights on Brazil as a nation willing to challenge convention in order to set forth progress. Given the historic nature of our import agreement established through ANIVISA, and the success of RSHO-X™ in Brazil, we look brightly upon the future of HempMeds Brasil™ as a company intent on making a difference.”
