Medical Marijuana, Inc. Sees Vertical and Horizontal Growth with PhytoSPHERE Subsidiary

The integration and expansion of PhytoSPHERE's state-of-the-art growing and extraction technologies give Medical Marijuana, Inc. (MJNA) the edge in production of today's and tomorrow's premium hemp oil-based products.

SAN DIEGO, Nov. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Medical Marijuana, Inc. (OTC: MJNA) has announced the integration and expansion of its PhytoSPHERE subsidiary. This move gives the nation's premier hemp nutraceutical firm full management oversight of its manufacturing and quality assurance processes for all of its existing and emerging products.

"MJNA's strategy is really good news for the company, industry, and consumers," said John Malanca, owner of patient-oriented medical marijuana resource UnitedPatientsGroup.com. "The increased control will accelerate development time and help innovative products reach the market more quickly than in the past."

PhytoSPHERE designs and builds highly efficient, self-contained hemp cultivation and hemp oil extraction and production facilities. The company cultivates thousands of acres of industrial hemp in its specialty micro-climates in locations around the world. MJNA says it plans to increase the amount of acreage under cultivation, as demand for its specialty hemp oil products continues to grow.

PhytoSPHERE manages the entire growth and manufacturing operation starting from the initial planting of specialty cultivars and monitoring of the growth cycle to harvesting the crops and producing the end products. PhytoSPHERE raises hemp cultivars with high levels of cannabinoid (CBD), which are then processed into highly concentrated CBD hemp oil using the company's proprietary extraction process.

Some of the technologies employed in the PhytoSPHERE production system include: self-contained indoor, accelerated growth modules; computer-controlled nutrient delivery for strong, compact, multi-directional growth; and an antibacterial clipping, curing and packaging system.

Crops can be grown without harmful pesticides, fungicides or herbicides. The company says its bacteria-free environment and packaging systems produce the highest grade of CBD hemp and other oils.

As the market for CBD health and wellness products grows, PhytoSphere predicts a taste for "designer" aromas and flavors will arise. The company says it is preparing by developing new products using unique strains of hemp with unique flavenoids, terpenoids and concentration profiles.

"Using PhytoSPERE technology, we are able to mass produce specific strains of cannabis and hemp to ensure consistency of taste, aroma and potency of our products," said Ted Caligiuri, President and CEO of Medical Marijuana, Inc.

We will engage with smart products - learning from them, informing them, and communicating with them. Smart produc...
More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints.

The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered. This potential may never be met as those data sets are tied to specific industry verticals and single markets, with no clear way to use IoT data and sensor analytics to fulfill the hype being given the IoT today.
