Testing Certification Process and Standards

HempMedsPX™ is extremely pleased to have achieved the Doctor Trusted™
certification, as it serves as an extension of our rigorous internal testing
and certification process. Our process starts with non-GMO seed stock from our
government-approved and certified seed bank. The seeds undergo independent
testing before being provided to farmers with government permits allowing them
to grow our proprietary hemp cultivars.

The plants are then tested once a month for the first three months and then
once a week thereafter to maximize omegas, CBD, CBG, CBN and other cannabinoid
levels. THC levels are also checked, which is required by law to ensure they
do not exceed legal limits. The plants are tested at harvest, pre-oil
production, during oil production, and then prior to shipping — all of which
is required by law.

PhytoSPHERE Systems further test in the US prior to the filtration and
decarboxylation processes, and then again at pre/post manufacturing. Products
are then randomly selected for spot checks to round out the quality assurance

Medical Marijuana, Inc. is extremely delighted with the progress that has been
made in the standardization of testing in our quality assurance (QA) and
quality control processes by the CannaVest/PhytoSPHERE team. Knowing that our
customers receive products of the highest quality is our number one priority.

at the 2013 High Times Cannabis Cup Competition in Amsterdam, taking top
honors for Highest CBD Concentration at the annual event. This impressive
achievement was preceded by winning both the 2013 Seattle High Times Cannabis
Cup and the Michigan Medical Marijuana Conference "Green Cup" for highest CBD.
These types of accolades demonstrate the team's commitment to expertise and
product quality.
