Medical Marijuana, Inc. subsidiary’s success in Latin America highlighted on syndicated Lars Larson Northwest Podcast.
Earlier this week, the medical uses of cannabis were featured on the popular Lars Larson Northwest Podcast as Blake Schroeder, VP of Operations for Medical Marijuana, Inc. joined the show to talk about recent developments with the company, including its continued expansion into Latin America.
Segment starts at 1:31:44
Larson’s interview with Mr. Schroeder began with a discussion of HempMeds® Brasil’s recent distribution deal with Paragon HealthCare BR, Brazil’s leading distributor of medical products. The new partnership further supports Medical Marijuana, Inc.’s CBD hemp oil pipeline, easing the distribution channels for our CBD oil products in Brazil.
The conversation also focused on the status of CBD-based products in Brazil, where they are regulated as prescription medications, requiring patients to receive a prescription from their doctor or medical specialist. Mr. Schroeder also emphasized that these products have no risk of abuse because they are non-psychoactive and do not get users high.
Finally, Mr. Schroeder mentioned the immense need for continued education of doctors, patients, health officials, and lawmakers across Latin America on the benefits of CBD as an all-natural, non-psychoactive alternative to traditional pharmaceuticals.
