COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo., March 26, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Choosing to present its products to the world at this year's Spannabis Fair, held March 20-22 in Barcelona, Spain, Cannabis Science, Inc. (OTCQB: CBIS) immediately began meeting with representatives of businesses and organizations interested in providing the products to their customers from across Spain.
"It was a huge success," stated, Mr. Mario S. Lap, European President of Operations. "This is the initial exposure we want for the successful launch of our brand in Europe letting the world know about us and our product pipeline. We are very excited to be in a position to simultaneously release our products in several new consumer spaces enabling us to now take orders on a wholesale level."
Over three days, Spannabis 2015 attracted an estimated 50,000 visitors from around the world - and it was a very busy event for Cannabis Science. While Mr. Lap was taking initial product orders and meeting with prospective customers, the company's multilingual European operations team answered numerous questions about Cannabis Science and its products from private individuals and companies and organizations from across Europe, Asia and the Americas.
"Interest in the company and our products was tremendous," said Mr. Lap. "I have met with a significant number of new prospective customers and a number of our targeted area representatives responsible for purchases for their respective Companies, all of whom are interested in our products in some form or another."
Under current Spanish regulatory structures, attendees interested in the product consisted of three main types of clientele:
