San Diego, CA – July 25, 2016 – Medical Marijuana, Inc. (OTC: MJNA) announced today that its portfolio company HempMeds® is a premiere sponsor of the Aug. 6-7 Southern California Cannabis Conference and Expo (SocalCCExpo), the first-ever professional and educational medical cannabis Expo to be held at the San Diego Convention Center.
In addition, Medical Marijuana, Inc.’s CEO Dr. Stuart Titus will speak at the Expo on Aug. 7 at 1 p.m. on “Cannabis and Medical Research,” giving a history of the medical cannabis industry and an explanation of cannabis medical research over the decades.
“Day-by-day we are working to change the world’s perception of medical marijuana, which is why I am always honored to attend and be invited to speak at events such as this Expo, as they provide tremendous opportunities for us to raise even more awareness of the plethora of medical benefits that come from cannabis,” Titus said. “For instance, attendees will have the opportunity to see for themselves our products, such as RSHO-X™, which is made right here in San Diego and shipped to Mexico as the first-ever federally approved cannabis product there.”
HempMeds® will be offering its best terms on new wholesale partnerships at the Expo. Cannabis retailers or distributors interested in CBD hemp oil can meet with the Head of Sales for HempMeds® at the Expo by visiting the Company’s SocalCCExpo site to schedule a meeting time.

Applicants interested in joining the booming cannabis industry can apply on the Company’s Careers Page and are encouraged to visit the HempMeds® Pavilion #509 to meet representatives in person.
Representatives from Medical Marijuana, Inc. and its portfolio companies HempMeds® and Kannaway® will be at the event, and HempMeds® will be exhibiting retail-ready cannabis products at Pavilion #509, including its zero-THC Real Scientific Hemp Oil-X™ (RSHO-X™), the first-ever cannabis product to receive approval from the federal government of Mexico for importation. HempMeds® representatives and Dr. Titus will also be available to discuss how Real Scientific Hemp Oil™ (RSHO™) was approved for import into Brazil and subsidized by the Brazilian government’s federal healthcare system.
The CEO of Medical Marijuana, Inc.’s PR firm CMW Media, Andrew Hard, will also be presenting at the Expo on Aug. 7 at 12 p.m. about “Children and Cannabis, Safety & Health.” Hard will be joined by three-year-old San Diego girl Sadie Higuera and her father Brian Higuera, who will share Sadie’s miraculous story with medical cannabis. Dallas mom and RSHO™ advocate Penny Howard will also speak with her 8-year-old daughter Lilly about how sharing her late daughter Harper’s story to Facebook helped a family in Brazil.
