New Products Offer 3,000mg to 6,000mg, Will Come in Jars of 30 and 60mL, Presenting Significant Cost Savings to Rapidly Growing Brazil Market
SAN DIEGO, CA, Jan. 24, 2023 (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 launched two new full spectrum products in Brazil. The two products represent the most competitively priced products available in the region, creating greater market opportunity for the subsidiary.
HempMeds® Brasil and Medical Marijuana, Inc. were the first companies to receive historic, first-ever permits to import hemp-based cannabidiol (CBD) oil after a Brazilian family successfully sued the equivalent of Brazil’s FDA, the Brazilian Health Surveillance Industry (ANVISA), for the right to access CBD oil for a child with CDKL5 epilepsy. Since then HempMeds Brasil has experienced consistent growth in reaching new patients through its relationships with various medical associations as well as its direct-to-consumer business. CBD products sold in Brazil require a prescription from a doctor and once obtained HempMeds Brazil assists Patients to obtain the prescribed product. The Company has long been in the process to garner the necessary approvals to distribute its products through pharmacies as well.
“Brasil has become one of the largest and most established CBD markets in the world with a regulated system involving doctors, pharmacies, and the state sponsored insurance program – and we at HempMeds have been an integral part of building that since the beginning,” said HempMeds® Brasil Executive Director Matheus Patelli. “We have truly become a leader in the global hemp CBD space since these recent events, and we are proud to share that we have grown 50% year over year since establishing operations in 2014, having imported more than 140,000 safe, high-quality cannabis products safely into Brasil. We believe in free access to CBD for all Brazilian citizens.”
The two new full spectrum concentrations from HempMeds® Brasil will offer 3,000mg to 6,000mg and come in jars of 30 and 60 mL. This opportunity and pricing model presents significant cost savings to the rapidly growing Brazil market.
Patelli added: “With positive new developments, CBD products are now sold on the shelves of pharmacies under a special drug designation that clarifies that hemp-based CBD is a health and wellness product and not a pharmaceutical drug. The future in Brazil is bright, and our entire team could not be more thrilled that helping others is such an important part of this work.”
“The growth and leadership of the Brazilian cannabis market is a major part of our company’s story, and these two new full spectrum products represent a very robust plan for growth that we are executing upon every day,” said Medical Marijuana, Inc. CEO Blake Schroeder. “There is a lot of exciting news to come in cannabis in 2023, but the Brazil market has always stood out as one that started from helping a family in need. We remain committed to being a cannabis industry leader, and to driving positive global change as we do so.”
