SAN DIEGO, June 13, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Medical Marijuana, Inc. (OTC: MJNA), the first publicly traded cannabis company in the United States, subsidiary HempMeds® today announced the historic authorization of its Real Scientific Hemp Oil-X™ (RSHO-X™) cannabidiol (CBD) hemp oil product for import into Argentina. Argentina's National Administration of Medicines, Food and Medical Technology (ANMAT) has approved the product for import.
"As a company of firsts, we're proud to offer the first THC-free CBD product in Argentina," said Medical Marijuana, Inc. CEO Dr. Stuart Titus. "In recent years, our company has been a leader in providing several Latin American countries with access to CBD and we're happy to add this very important country to our roster."
FLOS Innovation will be the exclusive distributor of RSHO-X™ in Argentina. This company is known for its dedication to high-quality offerings and product transparency.
"We're very excited to partner with HempMeds and distribute these high-quality CBD products in our country," said FLOS Innovation CEO Carlos Mendez. "We only work with the most reputable companies on the market and this company is no exception. We are very enthusiastic to help people understand the many therapeutic benefits of the product."
In Argentina, CBD products are sold for compassionate use and must be prescribed by a licensed physician. A patient is allowed to import as much as a six-month's supply and import is currently only allowed for the indication of refractory epilepsy. It is predicted that other conditions will soon be allowed.
HempMeds® was the first company to ever bring hemp-based CBD oil products to market in the U.S. in 2012 -- and the first to both make CBD products available in bulk for U.S. consumers and provide high-quality CBD oil to customers around the world. HempMeds® was also the first-ever company to receive historic federal government import approvals for its CBD products in the nations of Brazil, Mexico and Paraguay.
