The first publicly traded cannabis company in the United States will provide the government of Mexico with medical-grade CBD hemp oil to treat patients with seizure disorders.

Medical Marijuana Inc. will be providing CBD hemp oil to the country of Mexico’s medical cannabis program. This will be the first time the Mexican government purchases  CBD products, Cannabidiol (CBD) is a compound of the cannabis plant which provides no psychoactive effects, but contains medical uses and properties.

“We are excited to achieve the historic milestone of having the Mexican government purchase our CBD products to benefit its citizens,” said Medical Marijuana, Inc. president and CEO Dr. Stuart Titus. “The plethora of benefits of medical cannabis in treating several types of indications is undeniable, and we are encouraged to see not only healthcare professionals, [but] now also governments, become increasingly interested in how CBD hemp oil can help heal.”

Mexican president Enrique Peña Nieto legalized medical cannabis in mid-June to overwhelming support from Mexico’s lower house and the public. The use of cannabis, THC, and CBD are completely decriminalized in the latin country.
