SAN DIEGO, April 30, 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 its subsidiary HempMeds® Brasil hosted the largest digital event in the history of the Company.
The event, an Instagram Live webinar hosted by HempMeds® Brasil and featuring Henrique Fogaça, chef and judge on MasterChef Brazil, attracted more than 13,000 attendees. Fogaça spoke about how his epileptic daughter Olivia uses HempMeds® Brasil’s Real Scientific Hemp Oil™ cannabidiol (CBD) and about the many misconceptions people have about CBD oil and hemp.
“We are so fortunate that Chef Fogaça used his influence and platform to help so many people learn about our company and products,” said HempMeds® Brasil Vice President Caroline Heinz. “CBD can be legally imported into Brazil and is even subsidized by the Brazilian government’s healthcare system for several indications – the more people we can educate on how it is being used, the more people we can potentially help.”
HempMeds® Brasil will be hosting additional Instagram Live events during May featuring special guests and celebrities such as:
- 5/5: Daniela Costa – Mother and CBD advocate
- 5/12: Rachel Apollonio – YouTube star and activist
- 5/19: Thiago Maschietto – Medical cannabis patient
“The Brightfield Group has reported that Brazil’s CBD sales could total about $448 million by 2023,” said Medical Marijuana, Inc. CEO Dr. Stuart Titus. “As the first Company to receive approval from ANVISA to import CBD into Brazil, we are encouraged by the large attendance at this event and hope that we will see similar audiences for our other upcoming digital events.”
