SAN DIEGO, CA, April 04, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — via NewMediaWire – Medical Marijuana, Inc. (OTC: MJNA) (the “Company”), the first-ever publicly traded cannabis company in the United States that launched the world’s first-ever cannabis-derived nutraceutical products, brands, and supply chain, announced today that its subsidiary Kannaway® has been included on the recently published list of brands that have submitted Novel Foods applications to the UK Food Standard Agencies (FSA) for their cannabidiol (CBD) products.
According to the Association for the Cannabinoid Industry (ACI), the UK’s total sales of CBD products in 2021 was £690 million, making it the second-largest market for consumer CBD, only slightly behind the U.S.
This new list contains the names of products that were on the market before February 13, 2020, and have demonstrated a comprehensive toxicological approach to confirm safety. The FSA states that any companies on this list can continue to market their products within the UK, and those that are not should discontinue all sales.
Kannaway® products on the FSA website now have ‘Awaiting Evidence’ status meaning the FSA is awaiting the final toxicology results and are satisfied with all the other evidence submitted. Once received, and if successful, the Company will progress to the final ‘Validated’ status.
“We are proud to continue to pioneer the cannabis industry in Europe, including in the U.K.,” said Medical Marijuana, Inc. CEO Blake Schroeder. “We established operations in Europe in 2018, becoming the first direct selling company to sell CBD there, and have since been able to experience tremendous revenue growth in the market. We look forward to future updates from the FSA on receiving our validated status.”
Kannaway® has warehousing facilities in both the U.S. and Europe and recently received Certified Drug-Free approval from the Banned Substances Control Group (BSCG), a leading third-party certification and testing provider of dietary supplements and natural products. The Company is also a member of the European Industrial Hemp Association (EIHA).
Kannaway® is a network sales and marketing company specializing in the sales and marketing of hemp-based botanical products. Kannaway® currently hosts weekly online sales meetings and conferences across the United States, offering unique insight and opportunities to sales professionals who are desirous of becoming successful leaders in the sale and marketing of hemp-based botanical products.
