Spokane Valley shop has personal reasons to help people with hemp
Fri., Sept. 7, 2018
Dr. Stuart Titus is CEO and president of Medical Marijuana, Inc., the first publicly traded cannabis company in the U.S.
He holds a fellowship with the American Academy of Pain Management and clinical association with the American Association of Integrative Medicine. He treated over 40,000 patients for pain or injury rehabilitation. Working with Peak Health Center, a 501c(3) in California, and ImmunAg LLP, a private corporation in India, the company now sells a non-cannabis CBD oil product from a plant family known as Humulus. The plant is more commonly known as hops, a vital ingredient in beer.
“Humulus Kriya has a high concentration of CBD with no THC content,” Titus said. “This will change the dialogue with countries that are very anti-cannabis.”
Humulus Kriya originated in and is grown in northeast India along the historic “Silk Road.” Titus’s interest came from working with athletes who wanted to use CBDs for pain relief rather than pharmaceuticals. Because CBDs relax the central nervous system, they also have helped reduce seizures in some people.
Dr. Bomi Joseph, director of Peak Health, created a specific extract from Humulus Kriya that is rich in beta caryophyllene, alpha humulene and cannabidiol. It is now sold as Real Scientific Humulus Oil by Medical Marijuana, Inc.
