SAN DIEGO, Feb. 27, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Medical Marijuana, Inc. (OTC: MJNA) (the "Company"), the first-ever publicly traded cannabis company in the United States that launched the world's first-ever cannabis-derived nutraceutical products, brands and supply chain, announced today that it has launched a new high-cannabidiol (CBD) formulation of its popular Active Relief Roll-On topical product.
"In addition to their many potential wellness benefits, topical CBD products have expanded the world's acceptance of hemp and cannabinoids," said Dr. Stuart Titus, CEO of Medical Marijuana, Inc. "People have a general understanding that applying a lotion isn't going to get you high or impact your cognitive function, they're more willing to try CBD topical products than something they might have to take orally and from there may become curious to learn what it really is and does."
HempMeds® Active Relief Roll-On is now available in a new reformulation with 450 mg of CBD and Arnica. Arnica has been researched as a soothing herb, often as a way to reduce swelling. The CBD found in the product comes from CBD isolate, a 99% pure CBD powder sourced from all-natural hemp oil. HempMeds® Active Relief Cooling Roll-On is designed to naturally support muscle tightness and discomfort related to physical activity.
When applied to the skin, CBD diffuses through the epidermis and hair follicles to interact with cannabinoid receptors near the skin's surface, activating the endocannabinoid system, a major regulatory network that keeps your body's functions running optimally and promoting homeostasis.
"It's no secret that the CBD topical market has exploded over the past two years," said Todd Morrow, President of HempMeds®. "We are optimistic that this new formulation of a product that consumers already love will fare well in the $4 billion U.S. CBD market, of which 17% of sales come from topical products."
Founded in 2012, HempMeds® was the first company to bring hemp-based cannabidiol (CBD) oil products to market in the U.S. As a subsidiary of Medical Marijuana, Inc., HempMeds is the exclusive distributor for premium brands including Real Scientific Hemp Oil™ and Dixie Botanicals®, and operates in all 50 states and 40 countries. HempMeds® is the only company to have its CBD products listed in the Prescribers' Digital Reference (PDR), the only company invited to speak to the World Health Organization and FDA on the benefits of CBD, and one of the first to be certified by the U.S. Hemp Authority.
