LAS VEGAS, Jan. 23, 2020 /HalcyonTV/ -- Following its successful inaugural event in Miami, Fla. last summer, USA CBD Expo is heading to Las Vegas to showcase the growing wellness trend rising in popularity across the globe. Taking place at the Las Vegas Convention Center from February 13-15, industry insiders and the general public are invited to learn about the benefits of CBD from experts, sample the latest products, and discover the industry's latest innovations.
USA CBD Expo is an invaluable experience for anyone affiliated with - or interested in - the CBD industry. The event provides retailers and buyers with the opportunity to evaluate new products, learn about industry trends, and network with more than 300 vendors. With an anticipated 14,000 attendees, exhibitors can take advantage of educational seminars and networking events with key players across all facets of the CBD industry.
"After seeing the excitement and success behind our Miami event – where we hosted more than 13,000 attendees - we feel energized, ready to deliver and exceed expectations for Las Vegas," said Jason Monti, USA CBD Expo partner. "Nevada is at the epicenter of the booming legal cannabis market, and CBD has an enormous role in that. The opportunities are endless for both consumers and business owners, and we're excited about creating a platform that allows so many components of our industry to come together."
PureKana, the presenting sponsor, will partner with MONTKUSH who is producing an upcoming unscripted television show about the hemp industry. Filming will take place for the duration of the event, with the goal of capturing the key components of the burgeoning CBD and hemp industry from seed to sale.
"The team is excited to contribute to the growth and success of this event through our sponsorship participation and floor exhibition," said Kathy Casey, Chief Customer Officer at HeavenlyRx, which owns PureKana. "We see this partnership as the ideal opportunity to connect with key stakeholders in the CBD space, help educate consumers about plant-based wellness, and further establish ourselves as a trusted and innovative leader in the space."
Concurrently, Ignite CBD - founded by social media influencer Dan Bilzerian - will unveil a new beverage line and expanded apparel, both of which will supplement the current line of expanded CBD offerings. Verge CBD, which recently partnered with Ronnie Ortiz-Magro of MTV's Jersey Shore, will be onsite with Magro promoting its suite of products, including a CBD-infused tanning lotion. CaniBrands will be in attendance with brand ambassador and Olympic medalist Dara Torres, celebrating the brand's launch into Planet 13 in Las Vegas, the world's largest cannabis dispensary at 112,000 square feet.
The event's speaking roster features both seasoned industry veterans and newcomers, each with unique backgrounds across the product goods, e-commerce, marketing, and entrepreneurial spaces.

- hempSMART to launch "ultra-clean label" CBD beverage product line via a sales agreement with MCTC Holdings that could revolutionize the beverage industry
- hempSMART hits the ground running with its wholesale program, which is representative of the Company's new corporate strategy under new leadership
ESCONDIDO, Calif., Jan. 17, 2020 /HalcyonTV/ -- Marijuana Company of America Inc. ("MCOA" or the "Company") (OTCQB: MCOA), an innovative hemp and cannabis corporation, is pleased to announce that the Company's wholly owned subsidiary, hempSMART Inc., has signed a definitive sales agreement to purchase ultra-clean label CBD beverage products from MCTC Holdings Inc. (OTC: MCTC), a science and technology innovation company focused on developing patented hemp extract infusion technologies and the sustained release of cannabinoids in the human body.
These new hempSMART™ branded products will be unique to the marketplace. During the initial stage, MCOA will offer a line of powdered drink mixes containing broad-spectrum hemp extracts with over 35 milligrams of CBD derived from all-natural extraction processes. Future offerings will include other powdered and pre-mixed beverages. The entire drink line will be based on some of the finest ingredients available to the marketplace, with a heavy emphasis on organic components where available.
Mr. Jesus Quintero, Chief Executive Officer of MCOA, stated, "At MCOA and hempSMART, it is all about the label and offering the highest quality products to our customers. With this line of drinks, we will be offering our customers a clean and healthy label that is currently absent in the marketplace. There are no chemicals, surfactants, or preservatives in this product line, and while we are not able to obtain full organic certification due to federal restrictions, we are at 95% organic for the entire line. It's a product line we feel great about offering to our customers."
Trevor Muehlfelder, Chief Operating Officer of hempSMART, said, "We are quite excited to unveil our new, ultra-clean label product line of CBD-infused powdered drink mix. The products are based on a unique dual-hemp extract infusion process that's unlike most products and have no artificial ingredients or chemicals. Our new product line is based on organic ingredients, including organic inulin from vegetables and trace amounts of organic coconut and sunflower oils, combined with a touch of CBD-infused honey produced at organic farms. This will truly be a unique, clean label product offering. We believe our new powdered drink line will revolutionize the beverage marketplace in the new 20's the same way Coca Cola did in the 1920's."
Mr. Arman Tabatabaei, Chief Executive Officer of MCTC Holdings Inc., commented, "We have developed a truly unique hemp extract drink product that will be offered to consumers through the new hempSMART wholesale distribution channels. We are elated to partner with MCOA and present Hemp You Can Feel™ beverage products to consumers."
