DENVER — HempFusion Wellness Inc. (TSX:CBD.U) (OTCQB:CBDHF) (FWB:8OO) (“HempFusion” or the “Company”), a leading health and wellness company offering premium probiotic supplements and products containing CBD, is pleased to announce a major distribution agreement with one of the largest retailers in the United States. Products from the Company’s wholly-owned subsidiary, Sagely Enterprises, Inc. (“Sagely Naturals”), are expected to be on store shelves at over 3,700 of this retailer’s locations by April 2022. The additional locations will increase the Company’s footprint from roughly 18,000 doors to just under 22,000 locations, including nine of the nation’s 10 largest Food, Drug & Mass retailers. Since launching its new line of non-CBD topical OTC pain relief products, Sagely Naturals has seen strong initial uptake, striking distribution agreements with some of the nation’s largest retailers.
“Through this distribution agreement alone, HempFusion will exceed its distribution expansion for all of 2021 as we continue to position the Company as a leading health and wellness business in the US,” said Jason Mitchell, N.D., co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of HempFusion. “With an initial launch into 75% of this large US retailer’s stores, HempFusion has the opportunity to introduce our premium wellness products to their millions of loyal consumers who consider this retailer synonymous with ‘America,’” continued Dr. Mitchell.
While much of the CBD industry continues to stall, HempFusion’s diversified portfolio of health and wellness brands and products has positioned the Company for significant growth in 2022 and the years ahead. Big box retail remains a focus of the Company, as it provides a significant strategic position for the Company in the event of regulatory change.
