Co-CEO Seann Poli comments, “Part of our strategy when we acquired Sole and Delisse was to develop a platform from which could quickly launch into the Hemp and Cannabis edible markets. This is the first part of that strategy as we can now leverage the existing distribution network we have with major retailers to distribute our product. We have several other hemp products in development that we plan to launch in 2018. This is fast growing segment of the functional food market as people realize the benefits of hemp and hemp oil.”
