When it comes to CBD, everything can be a little intimidating. CBD, scientifically called cannabidiol, is a compound that comes from the cannabis plant. Often, this leads people to become confused between CBD products and medical marijuana.
The two key differences are psycho-activity and legality. Medical marijuana refers to plants and products containing significant quantities of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), a compound which can cause the user to get ‘high’. This means that medical marijuana is illegal in a number of nations, states, and territories.
CBD, on the other hand, is a cousin compound of THC, and it cannot get the user high. CBD products have to be very low in THC (the law in Britain is 0.2%) and this means that they are legal to use as a food supplement. You don’t even need a prescription!
The legal CBD market has become big business in recent years, with many brands looking to cash in on it. Today, we are reviewing one of the oldest brands in the business – Medical Marijuana Inc.
We have to say, the name of this brand might be a little off-putting. Perhaps they missed a trick with this one, because it sounds like the products are intoxicating and perhaps even illegal. However, we can assure you that Medical Marijuana Inc products are just CBD oils and other spin-offs. There is nothing to worry about! Plus, there is a reason they have ‘medical’ in the name. So, let’s check them out.
Who is Medical Marijuana Inc?
Medical Marijuana Inc is a self-proclaimed “Company of Firsts.” Back in 2009, this brand became the first publicly traded cannabis company in the United States. By 2011, the company had established a global pipeline that made cannabinoids available to people throughout the world – however, these products were actual medicines, and not the food supplements you can simply order off the internet.
You may be aware that the U.S. government holds a patent on CBD as an antioxidant and neuroprotectant. This patent has been awarded to Kannalife Sciences, with this being the only company allowed to develop drugs using synthetic and natural cannabinoids that may help people with certain illnesses. Well, Kannalife is actually a subsidiary of Medical Marijuana Inc.
Perhaps now you are seeing where the name ‘Medical Marijuana’ comes in. The company does in fact provide medical products and pharmaceuticals, working to develop medicines in the United States as well as providing cannabis-based medicines in Brazil.
However, regular members of the public cannot just purchase these products online – they require a prescription from a licensed doctor in a state where such products are legal. But Medical Marijuana Inc has a solution.
This brand also sells legal, over-the-counter CBD food supplements on its website. These can be purchased by anyone. In February of 2019, the U.S. Physicians’ Desk Reference listed two Medical Marijuana Inc products – the first ever CBD products to make this register. This means that, when patients inquire about CBD to their doctors, Medical Marijuana Inc products can be explicitly recommended as they are guaranteed to be safe and high-quality.
It’s quite apparent that Medical Marijuana Inc is a company of firsts. You can visit the Medical Marijuana Inc website to find out a little more about the company and its background in the industry. They also provide a huge information bank on medical marijuana and CBD products for those interested. However, if you are interested in buying CBD products for yourself, you will have to visit the shopping site.
Medical Marijuana Inc CBD Products
Perhaps unsurprisingly, Medical Marijuana Inc stocks quite the range of CBD products. In fact, there are so many products that shopping can get a bit confusing! Of course, all of them are third-party lab tested and of the utmost quality.
Medical Marijuana Inc CBD Oil
Medical Marijuana Inc separates its CBD oils into tinctures and pure CBD oil.
The tinctures are full-spectrum, made from hemp grown in Northern Europe and suspended in an MCT oil. Medical Marijuana Inc called them Real Scientific Hemp Oil (RSHO). They are separated into categories distinguished by the colour of the label: Green Label is a raw extract, meaning that it has not been heated; Blue Label is minimally processed; and Gold Label has been both heated and filtered to achieve a purer CBD extract.
There is also an RSHO-X option, which has been filtered to the extent that it only contains a CBD isolate. If you want to avoid other cannabinoids like THC and CBG, then this option is for you.
One of the first product lines released by Medical Marijuana Inc was a collaboration with Dixie CBD oils, so you can also buy these on the site. These flavoured options of CBD provide a tastier way to take your CBD, with a variety of strengths available.

Medical Marijuana Inc CBD Capsules
Just like the tinctures and oils, the Medical Marijuana Inc capsules carry a label. Once again, the Green Label refers to raw extract containing CBDa. The Blue Label is slightly processed, having had the CBDa converted to CBD, and the Gold Label is more heavily processed and refined. There is also a Dixie Botanicals option of soft gels, which offers 25mg of full-spectrum CBD per capsule.
The Dixie Botanicals capsules are made using Beef Gelatine. However, the Real Scientific Hemp Oil options are all vegan. Each blend contains 25mg of CBD per capsule, as well as an additional 200mg of calcium and 200mg of turmeric root and white willow bark.
- Dixie Botanicals CBD Gel Capsules 25mg (30-count): $109.00
- Green Label CBD Hemp Oil Capsules 25mg (30-count): $99.00
- Blue Label CBD Hemp Oil Capsules 25mg (30-count): $109.00
- Gold Label CBD Hemp Oil Capsules 25mg (30-count): $119.00
Medical Marijuana Inc CBD Topicals
Medical Marijuana Inc sells quite an array of CBD topicals, including CBD shampoo and CBD skin care products. These come from a variety of brands, including Cannabis Beauty Defined, Hempmeds, and of course Dixie Botanicals.
You can check out the full range on the site, as there’s quite a lot to go through. However, we want to talk about the Dixie Botanicals CBD-infused Sunscreen.
We haven’t seen this product before, but we actually think it’s a really good idea. The sun cream is broad-spectrum, and is designed to protect your skin from both UVA and UVB rays. Being the good skin care ingredient that it is, CBD makes a great addition to any sun cream, but this particular blend seems to be high-quality. It is SPF50, water-resistant for 80 minutes, and contains 100mg of CBD.
A 4oz bottle of the sun cream is $21.99. You can also buy a bundle of the sun cream and the 250mg orange-flavoured isolate for just $49.99.
Medical Marijuana Inc CBD Isolate
If you are looking for an isolate, you can of course purchase the RSHO-X oil, or the Dixie Botanicals isolate tincture. However, there is also a Real Scientific Hemp Oil isolate powder.
The isolate contains 99% CBD, and is both tasteless and odourless. This makes it ideal for cooking with CBD. You can also use it to make your own CBD oil.
The 1g tub contains a total of 1000mg of CBD, costing $49.99. This is a pretty reasonable price for a strong CBD isolate – it’s a lot cheaper than many of the Medical Marijuana Inc products!
Medical Marijuana Inc Vapes
All of the vape liquids are part of the collaboration with Dixie Botanicals. Each e-liquid comes in a 30ml bottle, allowing you to add it to the vaporiser you already own. The dropper on the top makes it easy to add, without spilling it everywhere.
We have to say, we are a little disappointed that Medical Marijuana Inc is still using propylene glycol when people are aware of the health risks. We have seen other brands steering clear of this ingredient, so we know it’s possible to do so. Furthermore, MMI admits that the e-liquids contain artificial flavourings.
The 30ml bottles contain 1000mg of CBD isolate. They come in three flavours: Vanilla Caramel, Blackberry Lemonade, and Sour Watermelon. Each costs $99.99.
Alternatively, there is a disposable CBD vape cartridge containing 1ml of e-liquid. This stocks 250mg of CBD isolate, flavoured with natural terpenes. The battery is sold separately, which is a bit annoying, but the cartridge itself costs $59.00.
Medical Marijuana Inc Edibles
Once again, the range of edibles has been formulated by Dixie Botanicals. They come in the form of a tasty chew, flavoured in either Mango Citrus, Sour Apple, or Chocolate. Each contains a certain amount of a different ingredient, but interestingly, two of the options never say anything about CBD.
The Mango Citrus flavour contains 60 mcg of Vitamin D per chew, while the Sour Apple variety packs 100mg of caffeine per chew. It is the Chocolate ones which contain 5mg of CBD per chew, along with 100mg of caffeine and B Vitamins.
Each 30-count jar costs $49.99
Other Medical Marijuana Inc Products
On top of the products we have talked about above, Medical Marijuana also sells a few other lines. The CBD Pet Products are fairly popular, formulated by a brand called Phyto Animal Health. If you are interested in giving CBD to your dog, then be sure to check out this fairly extensive range, which includes bacon apple dog treats and tinctures for all breed sizes.
If vaping CBD is your thing, then you have the option to purchase a number of vaping devices from Medical Marijuana Inc. The range includes e-cigarettes and desktop vaporisers, as well as specific ones designed for concentrates and wax.
The range of Hemp Foods appears to be very popular, too. Hemp is a very nutritional plant that has many uses, but be aware that the hemp seeds do not contain CBD or cannabinoids. As such, these products can be ideal for cooking up delicious hemp foods or upping your protein intake, but they will not provide you with CBD.
Medical Marijuana Inc Pros
- A huge range of products with something for everyone.
- Not only are the products lab-tested, they are triple lab-tested for the utmost confidence.
- As a government-licensed brand that has been around for a long time, you can be sure that Medical Marijuana Inc products are safe.
- Reviews from customers are very positive.
- The website has a huge amount of information on everything you could possibly want to know.
Medical Marijuana Inc Cons
- The shopping website is a bit disorganised and it is hard to find the product you want.
- On a price-per-milligram basis, Medical Marijuana Inc products are actually very expensive compared to other brands.
Our Verdict on Medical Marijuana Inc
Don’t be put off by the medical marijuana name. We all know that marijuana is illegal in Great Britain, despite the leaps and bounds made by medical cannabinoids as of late. Nevertheless, you can’t just go online and buy these medicinal products.
But Medical Marijuana Inc also sells CBD food supplements, hemp foods, and great CBD products that you can buy legally. Unfortunately, you cannot get these products in the UK, as it is an American brand. Perhaps this isn’t so bad – the prices from this brand are actually extremely high, after all.
Strong CBD products are the forte of Medical Marijuana Inc, but you can also get high-potency CBD oils for a more reasonable price right here in the UK. Be sure to check out our other reviews to find the right brand for you.
