SAN DIEGO, Nov. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- CanChew BioTechnologies Inc, a portfolio company of Medical Marijuana Inc. (OTC: MJNA), announces that this week marks the final three days to register for the market trial of CanChew gum. Qualifying participants will receive a minimum of a 30-day free trial sample of the CBD-based CanChew gum in exchange for their product feedback. The only cost involved will be a nominal shipping charge of $4.95 for delivery of the product.
While the company has been researching distribution partnerships for over-the-counter sales of the CanChew gum product, preparations for clinical trials have been underway in Europe and are slated to begin during 2013. U.S. clinical trials should begin shortly thereafter. Successful trials and new drug application may eventually lead to a European and/or U.S. pharmaceutical product with substantiated medical claims. Over the counter sales of CanChew gum are expected to begin in the first quarter of 2013.
Ted Caligiuri, President and CEO of Medical Marijuana Inc. comments: "We are pleased with the interest in our CanChew market survey and free product trial and eagerly anticipate positive feedback from clients."
The gum contains high concentrations of CBD hemp oil and its raw ingredients are derived from the operations of PhytoSphere systems, an MJNA portfolio company. MJNA anticipates selling these products through the Internet, as well portfolio company Red Dice Holdings national distribution platform. Currently, Red Dice Holdings distributes a variety of CBD Hemp oil products in over 500 retail locations throughout Colorado, Arizona, California and New Mexico.

The delivery of these medications via the oral mucosa provides for rapid and near complete absorption directly into the systemic circulation. This leads to rapid onset of effects and increased bioavailability. Pre-systemic metabolism is thus avoided.
