Rapid Growth Of CBD Infused Products Market May Spur Consolidation Of Distribution Channels

Palm Beach, FL – February 27, 2019 – The passage of the U.S. Farm bill and The Brightfield Group’s recent report on CBD projections, have both played a major role in the demand for CBD products. Consumer demand begets more products and more units to flow from the field to the shelves of retail stores and into the “shopping cart” of their online brethren. So far, it looks like the shelves and shopping carts are going to demand a more diverse and quickly replenishable supply of CBD infused products. As background, the Farm Bill legalized CBD and the Brightfield Group report set the markets on fire, by saying: Hemp-Derived CBD Will Outpace All Other Cannabis Markets, Projected to Hit $22 Billion by 2022”. An article in The Cannabis Business Times recently said: ““On one hand, yes, it’s really surprising to see this young industry be at such huge numbers so quickly… Right now, online orders of hemp-derived CBD products are the primary sales driver. Companies… can ship CBD products anywhere in the U.S., as long as the plant source meets that legal definition of industrial hemp and includes less than 0.3-percent THC.”     Active Companies from around the market with current developments this week include:  Pyramidion Technology Group, Inc. (OTC:PYTG), Cronos Group Inc. (NASDAQ: CRON) (TSX: CRON), KushCo Holdings, Inc. (OTC: KSHB), CannTrust Holdings Inc. (TSX: TRST) (NYSE: CTST), Leafbuyer Technologies, Inc. (OTC: LBUY).


The article continues with “It’s amazing to see the growth that’s happened already, and it’s only the organizations getting in that have some bravery to them.”  And even if the vast majority of retail companies aren’t yet involved, the number of product manufacturers has already consolidated greatly in just the short window of time… Twenty businesses now host two-thirds of hemp-derived CBD sales,” according to the Brightfield report, “as the evolution of the market has allowed these companies to develop reputations, spread the word about their brands and products through grassroots-level word-of-mouth marketing, and grow their consumer bases tremendously despite the barriers presented by the current regulatory system.”
