SAN DIEGO, June 26, 2018 -- /D.M.O. Newswire/ -- Medical Marijuana, Inc. (OTC:MJNA), the first-ever publicly traded cannabis company in the United States, announced today that it has partnered with Peak Health to distribute the first-ever, and only, hops (Kriya brand Humulus)-derived cannabidiol (CBD) product, ImmunAg™. Medical Marijuana, Inc. is the exclusive distributor of ImmunAG™ and the product will be sold as Real Scientific Humulus Oil (RSHO-K) by Medical Marijuana, Inc.'s distribution subsidiary, HempMeds®.
ImmunAG™ is an extract of the Kriya brand Humulus plant, which is a variety of hops. Like hemp extract, the Kriya brand Humulus extract has a high concentration of CBD. Unlike CBD products derived from cannabis, which may contain trace amounts of Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), ImmunAG™ contains no THC.
"Medical Marijuana, Inc. is a company of firsts and we're very proud to be the distributors of the first, and only, non-cannabis derived CBD product on the market," said Medical Marijuana, Inc. CEO Dr. Stuart Titus. "We believe that this partnership and this Humulus-derived, non-cannabis-based product will not only provide new evidence of the benefits of CBD, but will also help people understand the value of phytoceuticals. We also look to introduce and educate people/consumers on the new concept of 'bioactivity' into CBD's potential health and wellness benefits."
Peak Health is a premier fitness and nutrition company in the United States. The company was founded by Dr. Avi Cohen and Dr. Bomi Joseph to conduct research and study the efficacy of plant compounds on human health. Dr. Joseph has a significant background in phytotherapy and has successfully developed a variety of world class phytoceutical products. He is a pioneer in the application of pharmaceutical science for phytotherapy and Traditional Complimentary Integrative Medicine.
"We're very excited to partner with such an established and prestigious company as Medical Marijuana, Inc.," said Director of Peak Health Dr. Bomi Joseph. "The company has established significant global reach and together we can reach even more people who want to try CBD but don't want to consume cannabis products."
Dr. Joseph continued, "There are many places in the world that do not allow cannabis. ImmunAG is a new option for them to get CBD today. People around the globe will now have access to a product that is licensed and approved as a food ingredient."
