SAN DIEGO, Nov. 26, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Medical Marijuana, Inc. (OTC: MJNA) ("the Company"), the first-ever publicly traded cannabis company in the United States that launched the world's first-ever cannabis-derived nutraceutical products, brands and supply chain, announced today that its subsidiary HempMeds® has partnered with Sezzle, a leading alternative digital payment platform, to offer customers cutting-edge payment alternatives.
HempMeds® customers can choose Sezzle at checkout to delay full payment for their items, at zero percent interest. Consumers receive their items right away and Sezzle pays merchants upfront and assumes all repayment risk. Sezzle requires a 25 percent down payment at the time of purchase and the remaining balance is automatically scheduled as three equal-installment payments to be paid every two weeks.
"For many, budgets can be tight during the holidays, and we want to keep working to show our customers that we're always developing new methods to improve their experience," said HempMeds® President Todd Morrow. "Partnering with Sezzle means that we can provide our customers with an easy way to lift some of the financial burden during this expensive time of year."
HempMeds® was the first company to ever bring hemp-based cannabidiol (CBD) oil products to market in the U.S. and was also the first to make CBD products available in bulk for U.S. consumers. HempMeds® was also the first-ever company to receive historic federal government import approvals for its CBD products in the nations of Argentina, Brazil, Mexico, and Paraguay, as well as the first to have its CBD products listed in the Prescribers' Digital Reference and one of the first to be certified by the U.S. Hemp Authority.
"The number of people searching for e-commerce outlets to purchase CBD has increased every year since 2017. In a study conducted at the University of California, San Diego, researchers found that online search volume for CBD in the U.S. increased 160.4 percent in 2018 compared with 2017 and is expected to increase by 117.7 percent in 2019 compared to 2018," said Medical Marijuana, Inc. CEO Dr. Stuart Titus. "With the number of new consumers becoming interested in purchasing CBD, we believe that Sezzle is a great opportunity to make our CBD products more accessible to people of all socioeconomic backgrounds."
