Industry Experts Discuss the Future of Hemp and Cannabidiol (CBD) In Natural Products Dec. 4-7 at Gaylord Palms Resort in Orlando

ORLANDO, Fla., Dec. 3, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — In spite of Florida’s medical marijuana Amendment 2 failing by a very narrow margin, it is clear that the discussion about access to cannabis products in Florida is far from over.

Medical Marijuana, Inc. (OTC Pink:MJNA), a leading cannabis and industrial hemp industry innovator, is proud to announce that its portfolio company HempMeds™ is carrying on the discussion by showcasing all-natural cannabidiol (CBD) hemp products at SOHO EXPO Dec. 4-7 at the Gaylord Palms Resort in Orlando. There, retail-ready hemp cannabidiol (CBD) oil products will be showcased and sampled at booths 225, 227, 324 and 326.

Also leading the discussion are Dr. “Doc Rob” Streisfeld, NMD, and Dr. John Hicks III, MD, featured guest speakers at SOHO EXPO. Streisfeld, a natural products and cannabis industry consultant states: “Cannabis in natural products is one of the industry’s fastest-growing segments. If you consider just hemp in the cannabis spectrum, it has surpassed coconut oil-based products in retail popularity as number 8 and 10 respectively. These days, consumers are demanding retail-ready cannabis products. We are very pleased to be able to address cannabis in the natural products industry and answer questions for industry attendees at SOHO EXPO. There they will learn what to expect to see on store shelves in the very near future.”

This year’s SOHO EXPO has attracted top natural products brands, more than 1,500 registered attendees and 400-plus exhibitors. Attendees interested in learning more about all-natural CBD from healthy hemp note the following:

  • Dr. Streisfeld and Dr. Hicks discuss hemp CBD at the SOHO EXPO educational presentation 10:30-11:30 a.m. on Friday, Dec. 5 in room Captiva 1 & 2.
  • SOHO EXPO trade show exhibit hours are:
    • Saturday, Dec. 6 from 10:30 am-5:00 pm
    • Sunday, Dec. 7 from 10:30 am-4:00 pm  

 “At HempMeds, we were sorry to see Florida’s medical marijuana Amendment 2 fail by such a narrow margin, winning the popular vote and still not getting over the hump,” states Andrew Hard, a spokesperson for HempMeds. “However, we’re happy to exhibit cannabis and CBD hemp oil products that are legal in all 50 states at SOHO EXPO and continue to drive the dialog forward, to show everyone that the cannabis industry is here to stay.”
