SAN DIEGO, April 9, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Medical Marijuana Inc. (OTC Pink:MJNA) (the “Company”) and HempMedsPX™ – a corporate portfolio company of Medical Marijuana Inc. and Medical Marijuana Inc.’s exclusive master distributor and contracted marketing company – proudly announces that Roger Hedgecock, considered the most conservative talk show host in the San Diego region, featured HempMedsPX™ on a recent broadcast of UT-TV’s The Roger Hedgecock Show. Hedgecock highlighted the fact that although the parent company’s name is Medical Marijuana Inc., that the cannabidiol (CBD)-rich hemp oil products promoted by HempMedsPX™ are available in all fifty states and more than forty countries. One does not need to move to a medical marijuana state to access CBD oil from industrial or “commercial” hemp.

A ‘self-described Constitutional Conservative,’ Hedgecock is the former Attorney to the City of Del Mar, California and former Mayor of the City of San Diego. His interview with Charles Vest, VP of Communications for HempMedsPX™, discussed the availability of CBD from industrial hemp versus CBD from marijuana, the rapid growth of HempMedsPX™, and the Company’s corporate expansion into the City of Poway.
When Hedgecock asked why one would want to take CBD, Vest responded, “We have an association with the Company that holds the ‘507 Patent‘ about research on CBD. We encourage everyone to do their own research and decide if CBD is for them.”
To visually depict the concentration of hemp-derived CBD in Cibdex™ capsules, Vest explained, “It takes ten bottles of store bought hemp [seed] oil to equal the CBD concentration in one of the capsules.” The coverage also featured the super-concentrated CBD-rich hemp oil, Real Scientific Hemp Oil™ (RSHO™) – the product that is creating conversation in mainstream news worldwide – and the Cibaderm™ brand of CBD-rich hemp oil shampoo, conditioner, body wash, hand lotion, hand cream and salve.
Commenting on the interview with Hedgecock, Vest said, “It was refreshing to work with a conservative icon in the San Diego community who ‘gets it.’ I personally respect the opinion of Roger Hedgecock and have done so for many years. This interview was extremely important as it opened the door to educate his viewers nationally and locally about the benefits and availability of CBD-rich hemp oil.” Hedgecock’s local and national audience can access the interview on-demand.
The award-winning CBD-rich hemp oil products that HempMedsPX™ markets and distributes have no psychoactive effects – compared to THC found in marijuana – and are available online. For more information on CBD-rich hemp oil products, please visit:
