Medical Marijuana, Inc.’s Dixie Elixir and Edibles Brand to Launch First non-THC-Based Line of Health and Wellness Products

Colorado’s Leading Manufacturer of Edible Medical Marijuana Products Expands Patient Footprint with Federally Legal Hemp Extract (Cannabidiol) Products to Address Pain Relief, Mental Focus, and Sleep Regularity

DENVER, May 01, 2012 (BUSINESS WIRE) — Dixie Elixirs and Edibles, Colorado’s premier Tetrahydrocannabinol or THC-infused products company, today announced a new line of products which will break entirely new ground for the company in the category of non-THC-infused product development. Following closely on the heels of its acquisition by cannabis and hemp industry innovators Medical Marijuana, Inc. MJNA -2.86% , today’s announcement consists of three new hemp-based Cannabidiol (CBD) products that contain no THC:

– Dixie DewDrops: a sublingual glycerin-based tincture designed for pain relief

– Dixie Botanicals: a topical pain relief salve and massage oil

– Dixie Scrips: a pharmaceutical-grade CBD capsule in two varieties, one for daytime focus/mental energy and the other a night time sleep aid

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) currently considers hemp-based cannabinoids, including CBD, to be “food based” and therefore legal without a medical marijuana license. Amongst the many potential uses for CBD-based products that are currently under evaluation, CBD’s have been shown to relieve convulsion, inflammation, anxiety, and nausea. Based on medical potential and the federally legal status of hemp-based CBD products, Dixie and Medical Marijuana, Inc. estimate the market in the U.S. to be well over $5 billion. These three new products are the first of many that the companies intend to bring to the market in the coming year.

Dixie will initially offer the new products exclusively to their existing customer base which consists of over 400 dispensaries in the state of Colorado. This consumer base represents in excess of 70 percent of the addressable medical marijuana market in Colorado and over nine percent of the U.S. medical cannabis market. Within 90 days the Company intends to launch a mail order campaign and online e-commerce platform that will allow individuals throughout the U.S. to purchase these products since they contain no THC. The U.S. availability will be followed closely by distribution in international markets including Europe via several key product distribution relationships that are currently under negotiation.

“From the day that we created our first medicated elixirs, we have known that as an industry we have only just begun to tap the very deep health and healing properties of cannabis,” said Tripp Keber, President and CEO of Dixie Elixirs and Red Dice Holdings, LLC. “These three new products open up a world of potential for Dixie and Medical Marijuana, Inc. to bring healthy alternatives to millions of patients who might otherwise never experience the tremendous benefits of cannabinoids. This is truly an exciting development for Dixie and we look forward to bringing Dixie Scrips, Dixie DewDrops, and Dixie Botanicals to patients around the country and around the world who are looking for a healthful alternative to mass-produced, man-made pharmaceutical products.”

    Kentucky Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty Why abolish the death penalty in Kentucky?

    It's costly.
    It's out of step with modern thinking.
    It's risky.
    It's unfair, broken, and arbitrary.
    It's unnecessary.
    Victims' families deserve better.

  • Kentucky, “Dark and Dangerous Ground”

    The Dark and Bloody Ground

    The popular belief that the name Kentucky means "Dark and Bloody Ground" is apparently without foundation. Yet through the years, the image has persisted in literary and oral tradition as a description of the Kentucky country.

    One traditional explanation sites Delaware legend in which the ancient tribe of the Lenni-Lanape allied with the Iroquois to fight the Allegewi, the original inhabitants of Kentucky. In a single bloody battle the Allegewi were virtually exterminated. The land where an entire nation had been eradicated became known as the "dark and bloody ground". The violent clashes between the Iroquois and the southern Indians only helped reinforce the image.

    In his book, "Historical Sketches of Kentucky" (1874), Richard H. Collins says that a northern Indian once asked Indian fighter Joseph H. Daveiss how white men could live in land that had seen so much bloodshed. The Indian said that the ghosts of those killed in the Indian wars haunted the land making it dangerous.

    At the execution of the Treaty of Sycamore Shoals the Cherokee Cheif Dragging Canoe is said to have told Col. Richard Henderson that the lands south of the Kentucky river were "bloody ground"and would be "dark and difficult to settle". However Ruben T. Durrett said in his book, "The Centenary of Kentucky"(1892) that the phrase was used to discourage Henderson from purchasing the land.

  • Our Environment

    Toxic chemicals in our environment, such as mercury, lead, and certain manmade chemicals, have been linked to cancer, birth defects and brain impairments. Reducing or eliminating the load of these dangerous chemicals in the products we buy, the air we breathe, the food we eat and the water we drink can help reduce the toll of human disease and suffering.

The chemicals can cause hallucinations, paranoia, rapid heart rates, violent behavior and suicidal thoughts.
