Medical Marijuana, Inc. CEO Interviewed on Booming Cannabis Industry
Oklahoma took steps recently to potentially legalize recreational use marijuana in the state. This news comes right on the heels of Oklahoma legalizing medical marijuana. Dr. Stuart Titus, CEO of Medical Marijuana, Inc., was interviewed regarding the news for a Benzinga article.
“Oklahoma, a conservative state had previously sued the federal government as they claimed a good deal of Colorado cannabis had been making its way into their state,” Dr. Titus told Benzinga. “With recent medical cannabis passage, the state is moving rapidly forward toward a vote in November on Adult Use cannabis. Who would have ever thought of recreational cannabis in Oklahoma? Amazing the shift in attitudes and sentiment.”

Non-Cannabis RSHO-K™ CBD Oil Continues to Make Headlines
Both the cannabis media and the traditional media have been buzzing about our new RSHO-K™ non-cannabis CBD product this week. Made using a first-of-its-kind high CBD Humulus (hops) extract, ImmunAG™, new RSHO-K™ is perfect for those interested in trying CBD but don’t want to expose themselves to cannabis plants, even hemp.
A Westword article examined the discovery of this non-cannabis option for CBD extraction. “Discovered by Bomi Joseph in the Silk Road region of northern India, kriya brand humulus is naturally endowed with a high concentration of CBD,” the article reads.
The article continues, “Through a partnership with distributor Medical Marijuana Inc. (which previously made headlines as the first publicly traded cannabis company in the U.S.), what’s now known as ImmunAG is combined with medium-chain triglyceride oil to form RSHO-K. Last month, Medical Marijuana Inc. made the product available to consumers nationwide via its online store.”
Dr. Titus was quoted in a Fresh Toast article that discussed RSHO-K™ saying, “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.”
Subsidiary Company HempMeds® Mexico Featured in Coverage of Mexico’s Legalization Efforts
An in-depth look at the current state of Mexico’s legalization efforts was published this past week in Mondi Di Canapa. The article details how HempMeds® Mexico was the first company authorized to distribute THC-free CBD products in the country in 2016 and the resulting push for medical cannabis access.
The company’s flagship product, RSHO-X™ was specifically developed to contain no THC to meet the strict regulations put in place by the Mexican authorities at the time. Since then, the Mexican government has begun to shift on its cannabis policy, allowing CBD products with less than 1% THC, as medical cannabis becomes a reality in the country.
According to the piece, “Raul Elizalde, [HempMeds® President, Latin America, and father of a special needs child] is among the first advocates of legal access to CBD for therapeutic purposes through the Foundation ‘Por Grace’ and brought this case forward before the Mexican government.” He now brings this experience to his efforts to expand access to CBD products across Latin America.
