Another Major Retailer Just Announced It’s Selling CBD Goods in the U.S.

The demand for CBD is off the charts. To date, major malls, Neiman Marcus, Sephora, Vitamin Shoppe, Kroger, Barney’s DSW, CVS, American Eagle, and Walgreen’s have all jumped at the opportunity. Dick’s Sporting Goods announced a deal to sell CBD products in its stores nationwide. Now, even Dollar General just announced it would sell CBD products thanks to consumer demand. In fact, it will sell 20 CBD products at 1,100 of its stores in Tennessee and Kentucky. In addition, there are plans to roll out CBD products in Colorado, Florida, Indiana, Oregon, South Carolina, Texas and Vermont by 2020. As excitement builds, it’s opening a range of opportunity for cannabis companies including The Yield Growth Corp. (CSE:BOSS) (OTC:BOSQF), Canopy Growth Corporation (TO:WEED) (NYSE:CGC), Curaleaf Holdings Inc. (CN:CURA) (OTC:CURLF), Aurora Cannabis Inc. (NYSE:ACB)(TO:ACB), and Charlotte’s Web Holdings Inc. (OTC:CWBHF)(CN:CWEB).

The Yield Growth Corp. (CSE:BOSS)(OTCQB:BOSQF) BREAKING NEWSThe Yield Growth Corp. just announced that manufacturing is complete on 5 SKU’s of the Wright & Well THC and CBD product line. The products are expected to be available in retailers in Oregon in January 2020, capitalizing on the incredible opportunity presented by the U.S. market. A Statista forecast estimates a marijuana sales value of approximately 1 billion U.S. dollars annually in Oregon by 2023. Wright & Well, an Ayurveda-inspired collection of THC and CBD infused topicals and edibles, are uniquely formulated to help people move freely and live a thriving life. Using the highest-quality Cannabis Sativa (Hemp) Root Oil, crafted through an exclusive proprietary extraction process, Wright & Well’s product line has passed all regulatory requirements of the Oregon Liquor Control Commission (OLCC) and has completed control studies for five products.

Wright & Well is now available for order by retailers through licensed cannabis manufacturer and distributor Nova Paths, who has a distribution network of over 400 licensed cannabis retail stores throughout Oregon. These unique proprietary formulations are backed by years of Ayurvedic study and hands-on practice with chronic pain sufferers: “BE LOVED” Marijuana-infused Massage Oil, with Purple Hindu Kush Oil & CBD Isolate; “BE RELIEVED” Marijuana-infused Gel with Purple Hindu Kush & CBD Isolate; “BE FREE” Marijuana-infused Balm with Purple Hindu Kush and CBD Isolate; and “BE BETTER” Hemp CBD Tinctures in Regular Strength and Extra Strength. Familiar, sophisticated and thoughtful, the name Wright and Well is a homonym: when spoken, it is “Right and Well,” which evokes the idea of proper and healthy. “Wright” means “a maker of,” so Wright & Well also means “a maker of health.”
