SAN DIEGO, CA, May 23, 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 HempMeds® Brasil was featured in Forbes on its recent successes.
The article titled, “The Steps of Cannabis in Brazil” details how HempMeds® Brasil has grown 50% year over year since establishing operations in 2014 and how the company has collaborated on importing more than 140,000 cannabis-derived products for Brazilian citizens.
“We are excited that we have been given the opportunity to share our message with the public and continue to reach more customers every day,” said HempMeds® Brasil Executive Director Matheus Patelli. “Articles like this are great for the cannabis industry because they help bring exposure to companies that are doing great things to help aid the health and wellness of the people and help reduce the stigma related to cannabis products.”
It is also important to note that in the first quarter of 2022, HempMeds® Brasil grew 75.8% faster than the overall cannabidiol (CBD) market. This milestone can be attributed to the subsidiary’s large network of doctors and medical professionals and the trustworthiness of its high-quality CBD products.
“It is incredibly rewarding to see our business operation in Brazil grow and get the attention it deserves,” said Medical Marijuana, Inc. CEO Blake Schroeder. “Brazil has been an important part of our international expansion and we are proud of the legacy of free access that we have created in Brazil and around the world that has impacted lives and driven positive global change.”
