The Big Trend in Medical Marijuana: Products that Don‘t Get you High – Yahoo Finance Reports from the International Cannabis Association‘s Historic New York Conference & Expo
SAN DIEGO, Oct. 21, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Hundreds of attendees, speakers, exhibitors, lawmakers, and members of the news media from around the world converged on the International Cannabis Association‘s East Coast Regulatory Summit and Educational Conference in Times Square last week.
At the first and largest “pot-preneur” conference and expo to be hosted in New York, many budding entrepreneurs sought guidance from cannabis industry veterans in attendance. HempMeds™ – a Medical Marijuana, Inc. (OTC Pink:MJNA) portfolio company and the world’s most trusted supplier of natural cannabidiol (CBD) hemp oil products – was a sponsor and exhibitor gaining the attention of multiple media outlets including Yahoo! Finance in the report The Big Trend in Medical Marijuana: Products that Don’t Get you High.
“We are very humbled and grateful to Yahoo! Finance for picking up on this major trend in the cannabis industry,” states Andrew Hard, Director of Public Relations for General Hemp and Spokesperson for HempMeds™. “When it comes to CBD oil from hemp, one simply cannot get ‘stoned’ or ‘high.’ As a result, consumers of CBD hemp oil from HempMeds™ range in age from toddlers to seniors. And cannabis is no longer limited to humans. We are extremely excited to have recently announced aNew Pet nutritional solutions for our four-legged family members.”
The global cannabis landscape is changing quickly. Once demonized in the U.S., decades of research has uncovered the truth about this ancient plant species that is fueling demand for cannabis products to be supplied to the global economy. Current CBD hemp oil products that are available in all 50 states and more than 40 countries range from nutritional supplements in tinctures, capsules, chewing gum and concentrated raw oil to luxury anti-aging beauty products that one would find at a department store cosmetics counter.
Hard continues, “The Company believes in ‘whole plant’ access. However, what we can provide to all regardless of whether one lives in a medical marijuana, CBD-only or a non-legalized state – today – is CBD hemp oil. We are very proud to announce that one does not need to move in order to access hemp CBD oil products. We encourage consumers to do their research on CBD from hemp and decide if this is a product to consider adding to their daily routines.”
