cbdMD continues to pave the way for the CBD industry by educating, informing, and producing high-quality CBD oil products for the masses

“…cbdMD has been able to establish themselves as one of the most trusted brands in the industry. By focusing on their quality ingredients, competitive pricing, and personal customer support, cbdMD is quickly becoming a competitive force in the industry.”

As the beneficial properties of hemp derived CBD continue to become well-known, we expect that 2019 will hold many “firsts” for the industry. With the passing of the 2018 Farm Bill, signed Dec. 20 – which removed CBD as a Schedule 1 controlled substance– cbdMD LLC, a member of Level Brands, Inc. (NYSE American: LEVB) family of companies, has shown commitment to bringing awareness to the industry and their brand as a major player.

cbdMD, a CBD oil company that produces the industry’s highest quality CBD using innovative production and extraction techniques, has been dominating the marketing with its full line of organic THC-free products. Amy’s CBD Guide said, “…cbdMD has been able to establish themselves as one of the most trusted brands in the industry. By focusing on their quality ingredients, competitive pricing, and personal customer support, cbdMD is quickly becoming a competitive force in the industry.”

In December 2018, the Brightfield Group, a legal cannabis and CBD market research company, stated, “CBD is growing faster than cannabis in the U.S. and will soon be a $22 billion industry. It’s been flying under the radar but is set to explode having profound impacts on CPG [consumer packaged goods] and Pharma.”

cbdMD has already made news for being the first CBD company to be displayed on the Digital Billboard in Times Square on New Year’s Eve 2018 – the Big Apple’s busiest night of the year. cbdMD, subsidiary of Level Brands, is the first public CBD company to trade on the NYSE. cbdMD is also the official founder of National CBD Day; first CBD company to be featured in Rolling Stone Magazine; High Time’s #1 CBD Company in 2018; and Editor’s Choice for Entrepreneur Magazine’s Top 100 Cannabis Leaders Issue.

The company has also made huge strides with professional (and amateur) athletes as the first CBD company featured in Bellator MMA (represented by Gaston “The Dream Killer” Bolanos and Quinton “Rampage” Jackson); the first CBD company to take the podium for the Americas Rallycross (represented by Steve Arpin of Loenbro Motorsports and Hoonigan Racing); and a major sponsor for Nitro Circus, including the Nitro Circus You Got This Tour, Nitro World Games, and in humanitarian relief for #Race2Rebuild in Puerto Rico.

“It’s so exciting to witness the CBD industry flourish and break new boundaries,” said Caryn Dunayer, President of cbdMD. “The passing of the Farm Bill opens many new opportunities for us, and we will continue to push for more visibility and education in 2019.”

Dunayer adds, “I’m excited to see where cbdMD and the industry will be in another 365 days!”
