SAN DIEGO, Aug. 29, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Medical Marijuana Inc. (OTC: MJNA), a leading hemp industry innovator, has announced that its portfolio company, Red Dice Holdings, is expanding distribution of its Dixie X, Hemp-based Cannabidiol (CBD) product line with shipments to medical marijuana dispensaries in two major markets: New Mexico and Oregon.
Since Dixie X is a Hemp-based product, it is legal in all 50 states and has the potential to help an unlimited number of patients and consumers throughout the United States. Studies have shown it may be effective in providing natural, safe relief for a variety of medical conditions including pain management, anxiety, nausea and convulsions. On September 5th, Red Dice Holdings will launch on-line sales of Dixie X products throughout the U.S., followed in 30 days by the launch of its CBD-infused CanChew gum products.
New Mexico first approved medical marijuana in 2007 and now has a total patient count of nearly 10,000 people. The State Department recently reported that 40 percent of medical marijuana patients list Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) as their qualifying condition, more than any other condition approved by the state. Oregonians first approved medical marijuana in 1998, with regulations today that allow the state approved facilities to serve approximately 55,000 medical marijuana patients.
"I am really excited to be carrying Dixie Elixir's new high Cannabidiol (CBD) tinctures, capsules and salves. Double blind respected studies are finding benefits for a wide range of issues our patients suffer with on a daily basis, such as anxiety, arthritis, cancer, Crohn's Disease, Multiple Sclerosis, Epilepsy, and Neurological Disorders, to name a few. These new CBD-rich options will even allow us to ship these important products anywhere without violating any federal laws," said Zeke Shortes, Director of Sacred Garden located in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
"We are excited to begin marketing our Hemp Wellness CBD line of Dixie X products through these important and carefully selected partners in New Mexico and Oregon. These are states that have a large number of patients in need of a treatment option such as Dixie X that offers pain relief and other health benefits without the THC. The demand for these products has been overwhelming in advance of our scheduled launch on September 5th we are very excited for what the future holds," said Tripp Keber, President and CEO of Red Dice Holdings.
