SAN DIEGO, July 31, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Global retailers are seeing what is trending in worldwide news headlines: cannabidiol (CBD), a natural constituent of the hemp plant. Countering claims that "CBD-only" laws are required to purchase or resell CBD-rich hemp oil products from HempMeds, the Company is exhibiting at ASD in Las Vegas August 3-6 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
There, HempMeds™ will proudly display more than one dozen of the world's first line of CBD-rich hemp oil personal care, nutritional supplements and lifestyle products. Research shows that many cannabinoids have anti-oxidant properties, which is adding to the growing interest in CBD-rich hemp oil products.
"That's right – today is the day that consumers will see cannabis and CBD-rich hemp oil products in convenience and retail stores," states Andrew Hard, Director of Public Relations for HempMeds™. "CBD-rich hemp oil products are starting to play a large role in the global anti-aging and nutritional products markets. According to the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine (A4M), estimates on the value of the anti-aging market are $292 billion globally by 2015; in the same timeframe, the global nutraceutical market is projected to exceed $243 billion. These numbers speak volumes. HempMeds is proud to be the largest supplier of CBD-rich hemp oil in the world."
It is important to note CBD-rich hemp oil does not have the psychoactive effect that THC in marijuana has, and that the CBD-rich hemp oil products that HempMeds™ represents are available in all fifty states and more than forty countries.
From "seed to sale," compliance is mandatory with multi-national government agencies in order to import hemp oil. Once imported, the CBD-rich hemp oil undergoes further internal testing and third-party analysis prior to creating retail products. Although CBD does not yet have organic status, all-natural CBD-rich hemp oil does not contain pesticides or herbicides.
HempMeds™ is displaying the following CBD-rich hemp oil products at ASD from exhibit SL5267: Real Scientific Hemp Oil™ (RSHO™) a super-concentrated CBD-rich hemp oil; Cibdex™ vegan capsules and flavored drops; and Cibaderm™ personal care products: shampoo, conditioner, body wash, body lotion, hand cream and salve.
Also from the booth, Mr. Hard and other HempMeds™ representatives will discuss CBD-only laws, CBD-rich hemp oil products that are available nationwide, and the arrival of cannabis products in convenience and retail stores across the nation.
ASD is a premier global buyers' expo featuring "seven shows in one." Although the full line of CBD-rich hemp oil products on display by HempMeds™ at ASD can be classified into several categories, exhibit SL5267 is located in the south lower wing of the Las Vegas Convention Center.
