/UCW/ SAN DIEGO, CA – Medical Marijuana, Inc. (OTC: MJNA) is pleased to announce today that the Company’s CEO Dr. Stuart Titus was interviewed by Fox News Radio about the science of cannabinoids, the distribution of Medical Marijuana Inc.’s products into the global marketplace, and how investment portfolio company Kannalife Sciences, Inc. (“Kannalife”) is creating intellectual property surrounding cannabinoids to treat diseases that affect the brain.
The interview with Dr. Titus includes a discussion about Kannalife’s work to develop a CBD-based drug to treat brain injuries, including chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE) — and also the importance behind the IP and the license to the United States National Institutes of Health’s government “507 patent” that Kannalife holds. Dr. Titus also gives an update on Medical Marijuana Inc.’s movement into the Latin America marketplace and how the company secured the historic, first-ever import permits for cannabis products from federal health officials in Brazil, Mexico and Paraguay.
“This is a very exciting time to be involved in the cannabis industry and we are always grateful when the news media tells the story about how hemp-based medical products are changing the lives of people around the world by treating medical issues that people have long suffered from,” said Dr. Titus. “We want people to understand and be educated about the plethora of benefits that our products can produce and how hard our dedicated team works to change people’s lives around the world.”
The full broadcast of the Fox News Radio interview is available here and hosted on Medical Marijuana, Inc.’s website.
