SAN DIEGO, CA, July 22, 2013 – (eTeligis via ACCESSWIRE) –Medical Marijuana Inc. (OTC Pink: MJNA) and HempMedsPX are pleased to inform shareholders and the general public that, in order to address the massive growth of the industry, their portfolio companies’ online marketing and sales endeavors will be managed by HempMedsPX effective immediately. HempMedsPX, in conjunction with Wellness Managed Services!
Due to overwhelming demand for cannabidiol (CBD) hemp products, HempMedsPX a Medical Marijuana Inc. portfolio company has brought on a sales team, marketing team, management and support staff including: call center personnel, graphic designers, fulfillment and logistics, as well as IT and web development. With over 2,300 websites under management to direct sales traffic, HempMedsPX is focused on the marketing, branding, sales, logistics, distribution and fulfillment of cannabis product orders.
HempMedsPX will be providing marketing, distribution and fulfillment for:
– Medical Marijuana Inc. (http://www.medicalmarijuanainc.com/)
– CannaVest Corp. (http://cannavest.com/)
– Wellness Managed Services (wellnessmanagedservices.com)
– US Hemp Oil (http://www.ushempoil.com/)
– PhytoSPHERE (http://www.phytospheresystems.com/)
– Other portfolio companies’ products and services
The first of many products that HempMedsPX is marketing from our portfolio companies are: Real Scientific Hemp Oil (RSHO http://www.realscientifichempoil.com/from CannaVest Corp.) and CanChew CBD gum (http://www.canchewgum.com/).
One standardized platform for the cannabis industry.
The added benefit of the HempMedsPX platform is the ability to provide a standardized system for the hemp and cannabis industries as a whole.
The marketing and distribution channels for the $10 billion (at the low end of some estimates:http://www.cnbc.com/id/36179677) cannabis industry are substantially fractured and product channels are largely inconsistent.
“There is currently no real standardization in any aspect of this industry,” says Charles Vest, Director of Communications for HempMedsPX. “This is a bold step in the right direction.”
The diverse product and service offerings are just a few of the many aspects of the industry that need to be addressed, and HempMedsPX is the first company providing a comprehensive solution.
HempMedsPX is the platform to take all cannabis products to retailers and health care providers.
Currently, HempMedsPX is focused on marketing and retailing federally-legal hemp-based products like CBD hemp oils, hemp-based food products and personal care products. To that end, the company has standardized distribution options for the underserved cannabis industry. This will pave the way for all future cannabis products to be distributed via a standardized platform as legalization efforts continue worldwide. Our system will be ready to fully address the emerging opportunities of the global marijuana industry.
In the meantime, HempMedsPX is bringing mainstream marketing, sales, customer service, and logistics for health and wellness products that are cannabis-based. HempMedsPX is currently positioning itself to market to over 200,000 retail outlets nationwide, including over 6,000 dispensaries, 150,000+ smoke shops, thousands of health and wellness facilities like clinics, doctors’ offices, and other related facilities. In addition to sales and distribution, HempMedsPX will be the communication hub for the Medical Marijuana Inc. portfolio of companies. Shareholders should look to receive special offers and additional news in the coming weeks.
According to the US government, every product derived from cannabis is categorized as marijuana including hemp. We, therefore, use the word “marijuana” as an all-encompassing term to cover cannabis, medical marijuana, marijuana and hemp. We believe that “cannabis” should be the standard term used for all medical products; as the industry matures, we will be phasing out the words “medical marijuana” and “marijuana” from the company’s vocabulary.
HempMedsPX is the master distributor and contracted marketing company for the CannaVest Corp. and Medical Marijuana, Inc. (OTC Pink: MJNA) portfolios of products, including their revolutionary hemp CBD products. Our goal is to help heal the world through hemp-based innovations.
