Escondido, CA — (December 11, 2018) – MARIJUANA COMPANY OF AMERICA INC. (“MCOA” or the “Company”) (OTC: MCOA), an innovative hemp and cannabis corporation, is pleased to announce the launch of a new corporate hempSMART™ website and marketing platform for its associates. 

By implementing this new associate platform, hempSMART’s customers now have the ability to subscribe monthly to our products creating a pathway to generate an annuity stream of monthly reoccurring revenue with minimal follow up. Since Q3, the Company has already seen an increase in associate signups with the new marketing platform and it is expected that Q4 of 2018 will feature the highest generated revenue of the Company’s history.

The new hempSMART platform is focused on incentivizing our current and future associates to take full advantage of our newly structured compensation plan. MCOA anticipates an increase in sales and a continuous influx of associate signups towards year end. 

Donald Steinberg, MCOA’s CEO, stated, “As we start the hempSMART global expansion, it was imperative to have a platform able to facilitate a large number of affiliates with different currencies and languages.  This platform provides our affiliates with the latest in marketing software to allow them to take advantage of all social media outlets.  With my background in establishing large global marketing and distribution companies, I am confident this platform will allow us to focus on growth. We have a good solid company with an excellent team, and we have developed great industrial hemp based CBD infused products which are garnering acclaim from many sources.  In addition, we have an affiliate marketing program that is structured to provide long term residual income from a global marketplace. It is for all of these reasons that I believe our company is now set for long term growth.”

The Company is also highly optimistic about the imminent passage of the Farm Bill by Congress, which will help the Company obtain better banking relationships as well as give more overall awareness to the hempSMART brand and products.
