LONGMONT, CO -- (Marketwired) -- 04/29/14 -- MediJane Holdings Inc. (OTCQB: MJMD) ("MediJane" or "MJMD" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that the Company has begun its planned California expansion strategy.
Since Assembly Bill 2312 was passed in 2012, the medical marijuana industry has thrived in the State of California. With only medical marijuana currently legal, the California market is ripe for MediJane to launch its first product in the state. To realize this goal, regulatory applications and filings are in place and steps are being taken to ensure that MediJane products will be compliant with all California laws.
"State by state product regulatory compliance is going to be an on-going factor for any growing medical marijuana focused company," commented Ronald Lusk, CEO of MediJane Holdings Inc. "Another major factor to our long-term success will be our ability to build and maintain a motivated, capable, and experienced sales force across the country."
Mr. Lusk concluded, "Now that we have our State of California regulatory applications and filings in place, we have started the search for our new California sales manager. Because MediJane is a medical marijuana company with innovative proprietary medical delivery systems, the California sales manager position will require a delicate balance of science and sales, and will also need to have a diverse understanding of the medical and recommending doctors industries. We are confident that our current efforts to fill this important position will be successful and that MediJane products will be well received in California."
The Company anticipates that the innovative MediJane "Daytime plus CBD" pain and inflammation management product could be on store shelves in California within the next 60 days, subject to final regulatory approvals. "Daytime plus CBD" targets chronic, neuropathic, arthritic, and back pain, without drowsiness. The four (4) hour dosage allows for accurate and controlled delivery of cannabinoids directly into the pain sufferer's system. This smokeless alternative is MediJane's initial launch into the chronic pain management market, which is estimated at over $45 billion annually in North America.
