Medical Marijuana, Inc.’s Dixie Botanicals ® Unveils Dixie Stix CBD Hemp Oil at Los Angeles Global Cannabis Expo; Addresses Industry Challenge: Standardization

Dixie Botanicals ®, a Widely Recognized Cannabis Brand, Launches Dixie Stix ™ New CBD Hemp Oil Oral Applicator Product while Addressing Cannabis Industry Challenges: Consistency and Standardization

San Diego, CA – September 16, 2015 – One of the cannabis industry’s most visible brands, Dixie Botanicals ®, is proud to announce their newest hemp cannabidiol (CBD) oil whole food product: Dixie Stix. The all-natural, non-GMO hemp stalk oil is blended with medium chain triglyceride (MCT) oil and delivered in a convenient handheld tube. With this new twist dial tube packaging, Dixie Botanicals ™ is also addressing a major challenge facing the cannabis industry: standardization.

“Our customers deserve the highest quality all-natural hemp CBD oil products in the world,” states Marcos Agramont, Director of Operations for HempMeds, the master distributor of Dixie Botanicals. “Consumers expect to receive a product with the same hemp CBD oil volume, quality, taste and consistency. As with other natural products, standardization can be a challenge – and the cannabis industry is no different. Between Dixie Botanicals’ unique formulations to the wide variety of innovative delivery methods and retail-ready commercial packaging, Dixie Botanicals addresses and overcomes major challenges that face the cannabis industry: quality assurance and standardization.”

Agramont continues, “Dixie Botanicals fans will be pleased to know that the new Dixie Stix oral applicator tube provides a 100mg serving of CBD hemp oil with every turn of the tube dial. This takes the guess work out of how much product volume should be in one suggested serving.”

Dixie Botanicals ® product lines can be seen at the Cannabis World Congress & Business Expo (CWCBE) at the Los Angeles Convention Center on Sept. 17-18 at exhibit # 229. Admission details can be found on the conference website. The complete line of the Company’s hemp stalk oil whole food products include:

  • Dixie Stix Oral Applicator Tube: MCT and hemp CBD oil blend in 10 gm oral applicator tube that consistently delivers 100mg of CBD hemp oil in each serving.
  • Dixie Dew Drops ™ hemp stalk oil CBD tincture: available in 1oz/30ml or 2oz/60ml bottles – the 2oz tincture is 2.5 times more concentrated than the 1oz formulation. This unique formulation is made with non-GMO ingredients, is lightly sweetened with Stevia, and offers a choice of flavors: natural, cinnamon and peppermint.
  • Dixie Botanicals ® CBD Capsules: the CBD capsules deliver 25mg of natural CBD hemp oil in each vegan capsule. As kosher food, these capsules are odorless and tasteless making it convenient to consumers with or without food.
  • Dixie Botanicals ® CBD Salvation Balm Salve: made from all-natural ingredients, including 50mg of naturally occurring CBD from hemp stalk oil, CBD Salvation Balm ™ Salve offers deep moisturizing for all skin types and is perfect for tired muscles, dry hair and split ends, dry skin and more.

The world widely regards hemp as a super food. Hemp products can be found in many health food stores, grocery stores and online shops. For health conscious consumers seeking a convenient way to add hemp oil to their daily routine, Dixie Botanicals ® cannabidiol (CBD) hemp oil is offered in a wide range of products. The CBD hemp oil used to make Dixie Botanicals ™ products is derived from the mature stalk of the hemp plant and is considered a whole food nutrient delivering the benefits of cannabinoids without the psychotropic/euphoric effects of THC. As a result, Dixie Botanicals ™ products ship throughout the U.S. and world.

Dr. Stuart W. Titus, PhD and Chief Executive Officer of Medical Marijuana, Inc. states, “Dixie Botanicals MCT and CBD hemp oil blend is a new step forward for the globally recognized brand. Dixie Stix adds a new dimension to the globally recognized product line while maintaining the quality CBD hemp oil that Dixie Botanicals customers have come to rely upon. Ensuring that consumers consistently receive the same suggested serving is a great accomplishment; this is a perfect example of how standardization is being addressed in the cannabis industry.”
