Medical Marijuana, Inc. (OTC: MJNA), the first-ever publicly traded cannabis company in the United States, subsidiary HempMeds® announced today that the company has secured 100 new retail locations in Q1 2019, significantly outpacing its growth forecast for that time period. As a part of this growth, Vim N’ Vigor, the largest cannabidiol (CBD) retailer in Hawaii, has partnered with the company to sell its oral, topical, and edible CBD products.
“I am proud of the hard work of my team this past month and our ability to partner with family-owned retailers like Vim N’ Vigor that are dedicated to listening to its customers and providing them with the high-quality CBD products they need,” said HempMeds® President Todd Morrow. “We hope that our product additions encourage Honolulu citizens to explore the many wellness benefits of CBD.”
Vim N’ Vigor, one of Hawaii’s first health food stores, has a history of more than 50 years for being the go-to place for thousands of Honolulu locals and tourists to purchase high-quality health food products and supplements. Vim N’ Vigor started carrying CBD products in 2016 after receiving a significant amount of feedback from its customers and now offers the largest selection of CBD products in Hawaii.
“As a health food store, our mission is to provide enhanced health for our families and CBD products help us achieve this,” said Vim N’ Vigor Spokesperson Sherrie Kozuki Rodi. “It is very important for us to provide offerings that are clean, effective and potent and HempMeds’ products, like its Real Scientific Hemp Oil (RSHO), meet that stringent criteria. We are excited to sell many of HempMeds’ new products in the coming weeks such as its personal care line which features hemp CBD shampoo, conditioner, body wash and body lotion.”
In addition to securing these new retailers in Q1 2019, HempMeds® became the first company to have its CBD products listed in the Prescribers’ Digital Reference (PDR), became one of the first companies to receive the U.S. Hemp Authority’s Certification Seal and garnered national and international news coverage in publications such as MarketWatch, Forbes, New York Post, TrendHunter, Cannabis Business Times, Pot Network and several others.
