Medical Marijuana Inc (OTCMKTS:MJNA) Enters Mexico With Hemp Oil

Published

on

Medical Marijuana Inc

Medical Marijuana Inc (OTCMKTS:MJNA) seem to be taking its cannabis based drugs business a notch higher with its subsidiary entering the Mexican market. The company’s subsidiary, HempMeds has created one of its kinds of cannabis-based export alliance with Chile, Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay and Mexico. The subsidiary has started with the export procedure of Real Scientific Hemp Oil and THC-free counterpart called Real Scientific Hemp Oil-X. The cultivation for the plants is done across northern European microclimates.

Mexican health department inclines toward import permit for Hemp Oil

What is interesting is that Cofepris, the Mexican health department, earlier in 2016, had shown inclination towards import permit of the Hemp Oil. This was its first permit that allowed importing hemp-based Hemp Oil from across the geographical borders. Only recently, Mexico also softened its response for the no-THC stance, leading a way for legitimacy of medical marijuana.

Medical Marijuana Inc’s products work when others fail

Medical Marijuana Inc sees itself with an added advantage. There is a reason here. The company’s CEO, Stuart Titus recently commented that albeit there is cartel violence across Mexico, but the authorities have seen a Hemp potential. Titus stated that, “Today we remain the only legal cannabis-based products allowed into the country.”

Now here is yet another interesting claim by the company’s CEO. Mr. Titus also says that Mexico presents huge opportunity for the company. He believes that, “Our products seem to work when traditional medications” fail to control seizures.

Strict regulation of medication

Nevertheless, albeit legalization of medical marijuana in Mexico, there are conditional permits applicable for Hemp products. These medications, which are primarily based on cannabis or marijuana, are strictly monitored and regulated there. The primary condition is that all these products should enter Mexico without tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) or psychoactive properties.

Even Brazil has same conditions for import with this company. Medical Marijuana Inc sells hemp oil in Brazil and it started back in 2014 for Parkinson’s disease, chronic pain and epilepsy treatments.

Phoenix Life Sciences International Limited (OTCMKTS:PLSI): The New Kid on the Cannabis Block

Published

on

Phoenix Life Sciences International Limited (OTCMKTS:PLSI) shares continue to look ripe for some potential action as the stock holds key support at the 200-day moving average in recent sessions. The company is a relatively new player on the cannabis playing field, but one with obviously very big plans. That is further supported by its news out on Wednesday.

Specifically, the company just announced its new Board of Directors and executive team, which includes some pretty impressive characters. “We have strategically selected these dedicated professionals based upon their ability to deliver and find creative solutions to help the company grow,” said Chief Executive Officer of Phoenix Life Martin Tindall. “I look forward to working with this talented team and know that we will continue to be successful in our commitment to the vision of life-enhancement through better healthcare.”

Phoenix Life Sciences International Limited (OTCMKTS:PLSI) is an adaptive healthcare solutions company. PLSI is in business to advance research and integrate programs and manufacturing of products that target and treat diabetes, pain, cancer, and address psychological, gastrointestinal, autoimmune, neurological and sleep disorders.

The company strives to create partnerships and integrate these programs for human health into communities worldwide as part of its Global Health Initiative.

According to company materials, “Phoenix Life Sciences International Limited is headquartered in Denver, Colorado. Over the past four years, many of our partner organizations have worked hard to develop and access a broad range of industry and pharmacology specialists. The partnership includes botanists, biologists, industrial and organic chemists, medical doctors, researchers, packagers and distributors. We are delighted to announce that in September 2018 we merged many of these partnerships and affiliations together under the name Phoenix Life Sciences International Limited. Without the support and collaboration of many individuals, this vision wouldn’t have been realized and we thank them for their global vision.”

 

A Solid Foundation

“It was important for Phoenix Life Sciences International to select individuals that believe in our mission to create a global platform for the reintroduction of plant-based pharmaceuticals, including medical cannabis products, into mainstream healthcare,” continued Tindall. “This new team is comprised of key leaders with decades of cumulative years of experience and I feel confident that we will make great strides together.”

Most centrally, Martin Tindall has been appointed as the company’s Chief Executive Officer.

According to the release, “He has held various roles including Chief Information Officer at Bartercard and Executive Director of Kronos International Investments, working with clients in a wide range of industries. Tindall founded Phoenix Life and its related companies after losing his father to chemotherapy in treating pancreatic cancer. Today, driving the vision for a better future for healthcare, Tindall leads the Phoenix Team.”

At this time, carrying a capital value in the market of $523.28k, PLSI has virtually no cash on the books, which compares with about $2.1M in total current liabilities. One should also note that debt has been growing over recent quarters.

However, the growth that is starting to heat up the top line grants speculators some interesting fuel to see the potential upside ahead: y/y quarterly revenues are growing at 541.4%.

We will update the story again soon as developments transpire.

It also hosts some of the most favourable conditions for cultivating high-quality medical cannabis at substantial efficiencies – ideal for both regional supply and export opportunities. This acquisition firmly cements Aphria’s leadership in the region and on the global cannabis stage.”

Shares continue to hold up in a range over the past 3 weeks, with a possible breakout lined up if and when we see the stock push back above resistance in the $16/share area.
