Medical Cannabis Advocate and Leader Raúl Elizalde to Speak About CBD on Global Platform

SAN DIEGO, Oct. 26, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Medical Marijuana, Inc. (OTC: MJNA), the first-ever publicly traded cannabis

company in the United States, announced today that subsidiary HempMedsŪ Mexico Executive Raúl Elizalde has been invited to speak on behalf of the family of companies, to the U.N. at the World Health Organization's (WHO) International Drug Scheduling; Convention on Psychotropic Substances; Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs in Geneva, Switzerland, on Nov. 6, 2017.

Elizalde is a world-renowned medical cannabis advocate who started the Por Grace Foundation to further access to cannabidiol (CBD) by advocating for patients, hosting public forums, and meeting with government officials. Elizalde joined Mexico President Peņa Nieto on stage in April, 2016, as the leader announced Mexico's medical cannabis reform.

At the United Nations' World Health Organization convention, Elizalde will speak to international leaders about his daughter's personal experience with CBD and urge organization leaders to not consider CBD psychoactive and not schedule it as a drug. He will also emphasize the importance of the United States' Ninth Circuit Court ruling that exempted the non-psychoactive parts of the hemp plant from the Controlled Substances Act. Most importantly, Elizalde will present research findings from studies conducted with children using CBD hemp oil products in Mexico by Dr. Saul Garza and Dr. Carlos Aguirre.

"I am honored to be a part of this incredible opportunity to be invited to speak in front of such a prestigious audience on a topic in which I am deeply passionate about," said HempMedsŪ Mexico Executive Raúl Elizalde. "I would like to thank my many supporters who continue to aid my journey to further CBD reform worldwide."

HempMeds Mexico is the first company to provide Mexican citizens with access to medical products derived from cannabis (THC-free hemp CBD) after the Health Department of Mexico, COFEPRIS, issued the country's first-ever import permits for Real Scientific Hemp Oil-X™ RSHO-X™ in early 2016.

"We are honored and excited to speak to United Nations leaders on a global stage about CBD as a supplement aimed to maintain and improve the wellbeing of millions," said Medical Marijuana, Inc. CEO Dr. Stuart Titus. "We hope to bring light to the many benefits of CBD and convince decision-makers that CBD in its natural botanical state, derived from hemp, should be classified as a supplement. We strongly believe that this botanical form adequately supports the optimal function of our body's largest self-regulatory system, the Endogenous Cannabinoid System."
