Medical Marijuana, Inc. Subsidiary HempMeds Mexico Celebrates Successful Sponsorship of 2022 XII Latin American Congress of Epilepsy in Medellin, Colombia

San Diego, CA - (NewMediaWire) - October 20, 2022 - 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 the accomplishments made through a successful sponsorship that its subsidiary HempMeds® Mexico fulfilled at the XII Latin American Congress of Epilepsy in Medellín, Colombia, in early October. 

On behalf of the Scientific Organizing Committee, the program offered excellent opportunities to share the latest advances in diagnosis and comprehensive treatment of epilepsy, from social aspects, pharmacology, alternative therapies, and the implementation of medical devices. The program included courses, workshops and conferences by renowned doctors and professors of international stature.

A further testament to HempMeds® Mexico’s commitment to providing free access to non-psychoactive cannabis and increasing awareness around the profound possibilities of its medical benefits, the company’s sponsorship directly supported epilepsy research in Latin America through the event’s presentations of posters and platforms, which facilitated conversations around new research and supporting data. HempMeds® Mexico’s involvement in the industry-sponsored satellite symposia played an important role in complementing the main conference programs.

In total, HempMeds Mexico had its products exhibited in a total of 6 posters on CBD studies during the course of the event, which ran from October 1 to 4. The company was involved in 4 posters around preclinical trials, and 2 of clinical trials, with one of the study results from the preclinical trials already published around CBD’s ability to reduce short- and long-term high glutamate release after severe traumatic brain injury, and its efficacy around the overall improvement during functional recovery.

Raul Elizalde, CEO of HempMeds, said in a statement: “We are humbled to have been in a position to support the XII Latin American Congress of Epilepsy as a sponsor. The event is such an important international program within the epilepsy community, which addresses the needs of people with different types of epilepsy, and we are so happy for the role we were able to play in the advancement of their treatment.”
