NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ - (NewMediaWire) - January 08, 2016 - Mobile Broadcasting Holding, Inc. (OTC PINK: MBHC) announced the appointment of cannabis industry professional Ms. Heather Manus, RN. As an expert in patient care protocols and extraction- and infusion-techniques using medical cannabis, CBD-, and other hemp-derived products, her comprehensive knowledge is expected to strategically complement those of the current board of directors of Medically Minded. With its newest member on the board, the Company expects to begin developing its business operational goals and plans immediately.
"We welcome Nurse Heather to our rapidly growing Medically Minded team. Her participation on the board will be integral to helping us formulate strategy around the broad range of cannabis opportunities Medically Minded intends to pursue immediately," stated President Ken Sobel. "We believe her extensive background and broad network of industry connections will serve us well as we establish a premiere, state-of-the-art medical cannabis operation. We hope to be reporting about these plans shortly."
Heather Manus, founder of the Arizona Cannabis Nurses Association, began her career in the medical field as a Registered Nurse (RN) providing home healthcare services in New Mexico. As an active patient care and medical marijuana advocate, her extensive knowledge of the beneficial effects of cannabis on the human cannabinoid system helped gain inclusion of PTSD as a recognized condition under Arizona's Medical Marijuana Act, while another eight new conditions she petitioned await approval. These other conditions, which she believes respond well to cannabis treatment, include Traumatic Brain Injury, Autism, Arthritis, Parkinson's disease, Huntington's disease, Neuropathy, Tourette syndrome, and Diabetes.
As presenter and speaker, Ms. Manus speaks across the nation. Currently she holds a position on the Board of Directors for the American Cannabis Nurses Association (ACNA) and serves as the Chairwoman of the ACNA Educational Outreach Committee. As an ACNA Faculty Presenter, she recently participated as an educator during the pre-conference workshops associated with The Ninth National Clinical Conference on Cannabis Therapeutics. Moreover, she provides cannabis industry consultations and technical assistance to many states and U.S. territories, including Colorado, Massachusetts, Florida, New Mexico, California, Nevada, Arizona, Hawaii, and U.S. Virgin Islands.
Furthermore, Ms. Manus brought to market one of the first commercial medical cannabis infusion kitchens, which were designed to develop revolutionary and cutting-edge smokeless alternatives for cannabis patients. In 2015, Nurse Heather was awarded for "Best Charitable/Community Outreach Program" during the Cann Awards.
"When you speak to Nurse Heather, you immediately understand the depth and breadth of her knowledge of the cannabis industry. She will undoubtedly be a great asset to Medically Minded. We are excited and fortunate to have her on board," stated Stephen A. Jones, Chief Executive Officer of Medically Minded.
The Company recently announced the completion of its acquisition of Medically Minded, LLC, a company focused on providing medical cannabis, medical cannabis-related products, and medical tourist services. An application for a corporate name and OTC symbol change has been submitted. The Company expects FINRA's final approval soon. Currently, 23 states and the District of Columbia (Washington, D.C.) have legalized medical use and cultivation of cannabis. The U.S. Territories of Guam and Puerto Rico have also implemented medical cannabis programs. U.S. Virgin Island legislation passage is expected to occur in March/April 2016.
