SAN DIEGO, Sept. 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Medical Marijuana, Inc. (OTC: MJNA), a leading hemp industry innovator, is pleased to announce that its portfolio company PhytoSPHERE Systems, which develops pharmaceutical grade medicinal hemp production facilities that produce high grade oil, is harvesting 1,000 acres of Hemp from its microclimate fields throughout Europe.
In the coming months, the crops will produce in excess of 2,000 kilograms of raw Hemp oil that will be used to fill new and existing contracts. The crops will provide high concentrate Hemp cannabidiol (CBD) oil for another MJNA portfolio company, Red Dice Holdings. Red Dice Holdings will then use the oil to fulfill orders for its Dixie X products— three new Hemp-based medical delivery systems that have the potential to deliver pain relief without the psychotropic effects of THC.

"We are pleased to be ahead of schedule with the harvesting of several of our Hemp crops. The harvest will enable us to produce a large-scale quantity of Hemp oil for our newly launched Dixie X product line and our soon to be launched patented CanChew medicinal gum, both of which rely on Hemp-based CBD instead of THC thus eliminating psychoactive effects. In many ways, we see our Hemp-based medical delivery systems as the future of our industry for the millions of patients who desire CBD wellness products," said Michael Llamas, President of Medical Marijuana, Inc.
