SAN DIEGO, Aug. 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Medical Marijuana Inc. (OTC: MJNA), a leading hemp industry innovator, is pleased to announce the kickoff of its nationwide marketing campaign with one of the industry's leading information hubs-WeedMaps.
With over 16 million page views a month, WeedMaps connects thousands of medical marijuana dispensaries and products across the U.S. with the over 1 million patients, as estimated by industry group NORML, who need them most. By creating viral videos, advertising and informative pages on its many websites including Weedblog.com and Marijuana.com, WeedMaps serves as a vital portal for innovations in the industry ranging from medical marijuana to Hemp-based CBD products. For Medical Marijuana Inc., WeedMaps is an especially critical platform to inform patients about the company's newest line of hemp-based CBD products Dixie X and CanChew, which will be sold online and through select distributors in early September 2012 when the campaign with WeedMaps officially begins.
"Weedmaps.com is proud to be working side by side with Medical Marijuana Inc. We will use our vast network to reach patients all around the country and spread the word about these new and exciting medicinal products. The real winners will be the patients in the medical marijuana community," said Frank Espinosa, Marketing & Sales Director of WeedMaps.com.
During the month of September, WeedMaps will be creating and posting weekly educational videos about Medical Marijuana Inc's Dixie X and CanChew products. In addition to the numerous WeedMaps websites, product information will also be featured on YouTube, Twitter and Facebook, as well as featured in the WeedMaps Patient and Dispensary Newsletter, which is published to over 250,000 registered subscribers.
"We are thrilled to be working with WeedMaps at such an exciting time in the industry. Our partnership will enable us to reach the constantly growing number of patients who rely on WeedMaps' websites and videos to inform them of the most up to date products, and just as importantly where to find them," says Michael Llamas, President of Medical Marijuana Inc. "With the September nationwide launch of our Dixie X, and CanChew products approaching, we knew that WeedMaps would be an ideal partner for us to collaborate with on marketing."
