Medical Marijuana Inc. Marijuana Extract Cannabidiol (CBD) Shows Therapeutic Benefit For Multiple Sclerosis (MS)

SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep 13, 2011 - Medical Marijuana Inc (OTC: MJNA) is pleased to announce that studies from foundations and universities around the world have proven Cannabidiol (CBD) as a therapeutic treatment for Multiple Sclerosis spasticity symptoms. Medical Marijuana Inc. through CannaBANK (www.mycannabank.com) has a patent pending on an extraction method in which they are able to extract Cannabidiol from Marijuana and Hemp. Cannabidiol extract is an easy way to improve currently accepted medical treatments efficacy. Cannabidiol (CBD) offers a feeling of clarity and greatly reduces anxiety without any of the psychoactive effects found from other properties within the Marijuana plant. It is imperative that this newly accepted legal substance be isolated from all other properties within the Marijuana plant to insure that all Multiple Sclerosis patients have access to its benefits.

“That's what's so amazing about our extract. It does not come with any of the psychoactive properties found within Marijuana. There is no ˜High' feeling from Cannabidiol and it doesn't even look like Marijuana! Drive with it in your car¦. take it on the plane and feel comfortable knowing ITS LEGAL and it's a nutritional necessity! For those of you in one of the 30 + States that don't have access to Marijuana's phenomenal medical attributes, YOU DO NOW! For those of you, who would not use Marijuana because of its stigma, be prepared to have a change of heart. This is something we should all be very excited about,” said Jared Berry, a CannaBANK Executive.

According to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society (www.nationalmssociety.org) MS affects 2.5 million people around the world. Many qualified companies are lining up in the hopes of a licensing agreement allowing them to use MJNA's extraction process for a powerful solution to Multiple Sclerosis spasticity symptoms and, of course, a spike in profits. It won't be long before a manufacturer and healthcare product distributor is chosen to help bring Cannabidiol to every Multiple Sclerosis patient.

“There is really no need for us to recreate the wheel. There are many dedicated, qualified companies that have developed great products. We are bringing this amazing compound to MS patients as soon as possible through established companies with distribution channels already in place,” Charlie Larsen, President of Medical Marijuana Inc., stated.
