CannaVest Corp. (OTCBB:CANV), a leading manufacturer and distributor of hemp and Cannabidiol (CBD) based products, was a premier exhibitor of the 35th annual Natural Products Expo West, the world’s largest natural, organic and healthy products event on March 4-8, 2015 at the Anaheim Convention Center in California. The event brought together an inspired community of over 71,000 industry members and more than 2,700 exhibiting companies. CannaVest sponsored a standing room only non-branded educational lecture on the Nutritional and Medical Applications for Cannabidiol (CBD).
Stuart Tomc, CannaVest’s Vice President of Human Nutrition, reports that “[a]fter nearly 20 years in the dietary supplement industry, I’ve never experienced such an overwhelming response to a new product line.” Mr. Tomc continued, “[a]t the Expo, the fire marshals literally had to remove people from the lecture on CBD, and retailers simply wanted to know how soon the products could be on the store shelf.”
CannaVest currently supplies its CBD-rich total plant complex to manufacturers and retailers, and its branded PlusCBD Oil™ line is now available in over 50 independent health food stores and 30 health care providers’ offices.
Michael Mona, Jr., CannaVest’s Chief Executive Officer, stated “[w]e have made tremendous progress toward being recognized as the most respected provider of quality CBD products, evidenced not only by the numerous awards we have received, but by mainstream market acceptance and demand for our products. We are pleased that our efforts over the past two years have put CannaVest at the forefront of this industry, best prepared to meet industry demands.”
