Medical Marijuana, Inc. CEO Presents Cannabis Research at U-T Successful Aging Expo, Joined by San Diego’s Sadie Higuera: Little Girl With 2nd Chance
MJNA and HempMeds® Sponsor and Share Cannabis Industry Success Stories at the U-T’s Successful Aging Expo April 30 at the Town and Country Convention Center
April 26, 2016 – Medical Marijuana, Inc. (OTC: MJNA) is pleased to announce that the Company and its portfolio company HempMeds® are participating as exhibitors and speakers at the U-T’s Successful Aging Expo on Saturday, April 30, from 9am – 4pm at the Town and Country Convention Center at 500 Hotel Circle North in San Diego. An estimated 8,000-10,000 are expected to attend the event, which is focused on education, entertainment and healthy aging solutions.
Dr. Stuart Titus, Chief Executive Officer of Medical Marijuana, Inc., will present at 3pm on cannabis-based anti-aging research and information on cannabinoids such as THC and CBD that are capturing global news headlines. Dr. Titus will also provide insightful facts about non-psychoactive hemp cannabidiol (CBD)-based solutions available to any consumer without a medical marijuana card.
Also in attendance will be San Diego girl Sadie Higuera. Her struggle to survive was captured in a documentary short produced by CMW Media: Sadie Higuera, a Little Girl with a Second Chance. In an article by the U-T, it was reported how Sadie endured as many as 300 grand mal seizures a day then – after all allopathic treatment options had been exhausted – Sadie’s physician suggested a medication that would essentially end her life in a matter of months. Unthinkable to consider this as a solution for his daughter, Sadie’s father, Brian, and mother, Demaris, sought cannabis as a solution. Once predicted to not see her first birthday, Sadie will celebrate her 3rd birthday next week on May 4. Visit Sadie’s Facebook page to learn more about her life and diagnosis with Schinzel-Giedion Syndrome.
