Medical Marijuana Inc.'s HempMeds Sponsors Sold Out US Cannabis Cup in Colorado
April 17, 2014 --
SAN DIEGO, April 17, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Medical Marijuana Inc. (OTC Pink:MJNA) is pleased to announce that its subsidiary company, HempMeds™, is participating as a sponsor of the HIGH TIMES US Cannabis Cup in Denver, Colorado April 19-20. HempMeds™ proudly markets the world's most innovative cannabidiol (CBD)-rich hemp oil products and is representing an entry for "Highest CBD Concentrate" (from hemp) at the US Cannabis Cup. Broadcasting live from the HempMeds™ booth is the world-renowned Robert Scott Bell Show that will air on Natural News Radio Sunday, April 20th. This is an historic event that celebrates the State of Colorado being the first state in the U.S. to legalize both recreational and medical cannabis.
Robert Scott Bell, D.A. Hom. states, "I am absolutely thrilled to be broadcasting live from the Cannabis Cup at the HempMeds exhibit to spotlight the profound health-supporting properties of hemp CBD, and to raise awareness that no one has to move out of their home state to get it."
The Company and the Robert Scott Bell Show will spotlight HempMeds' "DON'T MOVE" CBD awareness campaign and interview parents of children who have added CBD-rich hemp oil to their daily routines. The Company's message is that CBD from hemp is available outside of Colorado, which directly counters what mainstream news media has reported.
"A picture is worth a thousand words and HempMeds™ is unveiling new CBD-rich hemp oil products during the HIGH TIMES US Cannabis Cup," states Charles Vest, Vice President of Communications for HempMeds™. "We are excited to let the Cannabis Cup attendees get a first look at our new and existing products. Our 'DON'T MOVE' campaign further increases awareness about the fact that individuals and families seeking CBD from hemp oil do not need to go through any of the arduous processes of accessing marijuana-derived CBD; with CBD-rich hemp oil, there is no need to get two medical recommendations, no need to establish residency in a medical marijuana state, and no need to be restricted to a new state of residence should they wish to continue using CBD oil."
The Robert Scott Bell Show has a global audience that streams live on the internet weekdays from 3:00pm – 5:00pm ET on the Natural News Radio Network. The popular radio show rebroadcasts on UK Health Radio; in Australia on Digital 103; and is also available through iTunes, Stitcher, GCN, and other online radio outlets. The Robert Scott Bell Show averages 1.2 million downloads of their archived shows monthly.
"I am honored to support the HempMeds 'DON'T MOVE' campaign by broadcasting live from The Cannabis Cup," says "Super" Don Naylor, Executive Producer of The Health Freedom Express. "This allows us to help make a positive difference in peoples' lives and help them access the tools they need so they don't have to tear their families apart and move across the country."
The HIGH TIMES Cannabis Cup is open to the public (18+) from April 19th–20th at the Denver Merchandise Mart featuring a two-day event with entertainment, vendor exhibits, and industry awards. Admission requirements for the HIGH TIMES Cannabis Cup in Denver are available online, although as of this release the event is sold out. Estimates on attendance at the Denver Cannabis Cup are more than 30,000, making it the most attended cannabis event in the world.
HempMeds™ further established its brand position in the cannabis industry as it represented the winner of the world famous 2014 High Times Cannabis Cup competition in Los Angeles for "Highest CBD Concentrate." The Cannabis Cup is extremely competitive, with entries from prominent growers, breeders, and producers of cannabis and cannabis products. Other first place "Highest CBD Concentrate" awards that HempMeds™ received on behalf of the Company's supplier were from the 2013 High Times Cannabis Cup in Amsterdam, the 2013 Seattle High Times Cannabis Cup, and the 2013 Michigan Medical Marijuana Conference "Green Cup".
