SAN DIEGO, March 4, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Medical Marijuana, Inc. (OTC: MJNA), the first-ever publicly traded cannabis company in the United States, announced today that its subsidiaries HempMeds® and Phyto Animal Health will be attending and exhibiting at Natural Products Expo West at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, CA on March 6-8, 2019. There, HempMeds® will be revealing its newest cannabidiol (CBD) product line.
According to a new analysis by Cowen & Co., it is predicted that the CBD market alone could reach $16 billion by 2025. The analysis also found nearly 7 percent of Americans are already using CBD and that, compounded with the passage of the 2018 Farm Bill in December 2018, it could be possible for us to see 25 million consumers using CBD in less than 10 years.
"Our attendance at this event is just one example of how HempMeds plans to reach a broader audience of business professionals and consumers this year," said HempMeds® President Todd Morrow. "As the legal CBD market grows exponentially in 2019, we plan to stay on the forefront of innovation and take new measures to increase CBD access for consumers around the world."
Natural Products Expo West, produced by New Hope Network, is the world's largest natural, organic and healthy products event. In 2018, the show had more than 85,000 attendees, including industry pioneers and new entrepreneurs, and brought in more than 3,500 exhibiting companies.
At the event, HempMeds® will be sponsoring a booth to exhibit the company's portfolio of trusted and reputable CBD products including its Real Scientific Hemp Oil™ (RSHO™) and Dixie Botanicals CBD tinctures, topicals, edibles and vapes.
The company will also be showcasing a soon-to-be-released personal care line that features many exciting CBD hemp products!
HempMeds® was the first company to ever bring hemp-based CBD oil products to market in the U.S. in 2012 and was the first to both make CBD products available in bulk for U.S. consumers. HempMeds® was also the first-ever company to receive historic federal government import approvals for its CBD products in the nations of Argentina, Brazil, Mexico and Paraguay.
Phyto Animal Health CEO Ian Quinn and his dog Dante the Pitt Bull, who takes CBD, will also be at the HempMeds® booth showcasing the company's line of CBD hemp oil supplements and hemp products for cats, dogs and horses. CBD hemp oil has been researched by top veterinarians for cardiovascular, pain management, orthopedic, and mental health in animals.
