San Diego, CA – (NewMediaWire) – August 27, 2020 – Medical Marijuana, Inc. (OTC: MJNA) (the “Company”), the first-ever publicly traded cannabis company in the United States that launched the world’s first cannabis-derived nutraceutical products, brands and supply chain, announced today that the Company has reached a significant operational milestone of selling and shipping more than 1.6 billion milligrams of hemp-based cannabidiol (CBD) since 2017.
The Company’s milestone comes at a time when e-commerce CBD sales have seen a sharp increase as four out of 10 CBD consumers plan to use CBD oil more frequently during the COVID-19 pandemic and 15 percent of those consumers plan on using a higher dose of CBD than usual.
“For a decade, our Company has offered the highest potency CBD product in an oral applicator form through our flagship product, Real Scientific Hemp Oil™. We’ve seen international media coverage of our customers having positive experiences with our products for over half of a decade,” said Medical Marijuana, Inc. CEO Dr. Stuart Titus. “Many products on the market today use isolate forms of CBD, or contain no CBD at all, marketing themselves as ‘hemp oil.’ While we are glad to have such high demand for CBD products, we’re also proud to remain one of the highest quality CBD oils on the market.”
As one of the pioneers of the American hemp CBD industry, Medical Marijuana, Inc. has advocated for the compound for over a decade and the Company’s products have remained popular among consumers as mass awareness of CBD rapidly increases. Today, over 62 percent of Americans recognize CBD and/or CBD products and about 33 percent of Americans have used CBD at least once.
“We continue to believe in a world where CBD and other cannabinoid-based products are a part of the general population’s everyday wellness routine,” said Medical Marijuana, Inc. COO Blake Schroeder. “While many new companies enter the hemp CBD space, our portfolio of companies was the first to legally offer CBD products derived from industrial hemp.”
