Medical Marijuana Inc. Patent Pending Extraction ---- Cannabidiol (CBD) Possible Use In The Anti-Tumor and Anti-Cancer Nutraceutical and Pharmaceutical Industries

SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep 2, 2011 - Medical Marijuana Inc (OTC: MJNA) is pleased to announce that studies have proven Cannabidiol (CBD) as an Anti-Tumor and Anti-Cancer agent. Currently Medical Marijuana Inc through CannaBANK has a patent pending on an extraction method from Cannabis and Hemp allowing Cannabidiol (CBD) to be isolated in its pure form. Research shows $200 billion a year is spent to treat Tumors and Cancer. The company is planning on expanding rapidly by allowing a heavily marketed nutraceutical or pharmaceutical company the use of its extraction technology through exclusive license agreements.

“Many qualified companies have shown great interest, and it won't be long until we license the right one.” said a Medical Marijuana Inc spokesperson.

Given the vast number of nutraceutical and pharmaceutical companies across the country, it's no doubt that CBD can be easily formulated into an array of already heavily marketed products, quickly becoming a major component of health and wellness in the near future.

Jared Berry, a CannaBANK executive stated. “Education is the key! The evidence is already overwhelming. Just look at what companies like GW Pharmaceutical's is accomplishing with Sativex or simply google Cannabidiol (CBD) and the studies and research dedicated to this what's called a ˜nutritional necessity' is overwhelmingly obvious.”
