Medical Marijuana, Inc. (OTC: MJNA), the first publicly traded cannabis company in the United States, today announced that it has garnered global news coverage in Westword newspaper and other outlets for its partnership with Peak Health to distribute the first-ever, and only, hops (Kriya brand Humulus)-derived cannabidiol (CBD) product ImmunAg™.
“We are honored to have our Real Scientific Humulus Oil featured in so many noteworthy publications,” Medical Marijuana, Inc. CEO Dr. Stuart Titus said. “We’re proud to be the only U.S. distributor of such an innovative product as the world’s only Humulus-derived CBD.”
As reported in numerous media outlets, including Westword newspaper and leading trade press outlet Merry Jane, Medical Marijuana, Inc. is currently the only U.S. distributor of ImmunAG™ and the product is sold in tincture form as Real Scientific Humulus Oil (RSHO-K) by subsidiary HempMeds® and as Premium Humulus Oil by subsidiary Kannaway®. 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 THC, ImmunAG™ contains no THC.
The process that ImmunAg™ creator and partner Dr. Bomi Joseph used to create Kriya brand Humulus is detailed in the Westword article “World’s First Non-Cannabis CBD Oil Is High on Hops.” The article states “Joseph and his team meticulously selected and cross-bred plants with high concentrations of CBD until they arrived at a variety — Kriya brand Humulus — with an 18 percent CBD concentration. Joseph holds a patent for this as well as the modification of any other Humulus plant to produce CBD and cannabinoids.”
The Merry Jane article, “California Company Creates First CBD Oil Made From Hops, Not Cannabis or Hemp,” stated that “While these bills slowly make their way through the legislative process, a San Francisco-based company just discovered another interesting way around the problem — by creating a new CBD extract.”
