Medical Marijuana, Inc. Acquires 50% Stake in CanChew from Netherlands-based Sanammad Foundation


Deal Provides Cannabis and Hemp Innovators with Patents and Exclusive Rights to Produce First and Only Chewing Gum Delivery Mechanism for Cannabinoids


Denver, Colo. (June 5, 2012) —Medical Marijuana, Inc. (OTC PK: MJNA), a leading cannabis and hemp industry innovator, has acquired a 50 percent stake in CanChew, a cannabinoid (CBD)-based medicine delivery vehicle in the form of chewing gum. The product was previously owned entirely by Sanammad Foundation, a pharmaceutical development company headquartered in The Netherlands.

The acquisition includes ownership of the patents and intellectual property of the product giving Medical Marijuana, Inc. the worldwide exclusive rights to develop, manufacture, market and distribute both THC and non-THC hemp-derived cannabinoid infused chewing gum to medical marijuana consumers. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) currently considers non-THC based hemp products to be “food based” and therefore legal without a medical marijuana license. Cannabinoids have had positive effects in clinical trials on neuralgic pain, Multiple Sclerosis and spinal cord injuries, nausea and vomiting from chemotherapy and radiation treatment as well as palliative treatment of various cancers and HIV/AIDS. Based on its therapeutic potential and federally legal status, Dixie and Medical Marijuana, Inc., estimate the medical cannabinoid market in the US to be well over $30 billion. The Company intends to begin production of the CBD-based gum, and in states where legally allowed a THC-infused product, within the next 90 days. Information regarding availability of the product will be posted to the Company’s website at http://www.medicalmarijuanainc.com.

The CanChew® formulation offers a unique, socially acceptable, patient friendly, taste masked and convenient delivery format for delivery of the cannabis/cannabinoid(s) based medicine via the oral mucosal membranes.

CanChew's full oral-oropharyngeal mucous membrane delivery method is superior to other delivery methods.

Advantages of Oral Mucosal Drug Delivery system:

  • Bypass of the gastrointestinal tract and hepatic portal system, increasing the bioavailability of orally administered drugs that otherwise undergo hepatic first-pass metabolism.
  • Drug is protected from degradation due to pH and digestive enzymes of the middle gastrointestinal tract.
  • Improved patient compliance due to the elimination of associated pain with injections.
  • Sustained drug delivery.
  • A relatively rapid onset of action can be achieved relative to the oral route.
  • Oral mucosal systems exhibit a faster initiation and decline of delivery than do transdermal patches.
  • The large contact surface of the oral cavity contributes to rapid and extensive drug absorption.
