Real Brands, Inc. (RLBD) (Market Cap: $12.577M; Share Price: $0.095) is launching a CBD beverage called Omegahemp™ Water. The company is very close to its next production run, meaning there could be major news on the way. The audit on the horizon means this could also be another major event for investors to pay attention to. Real Brands is first and foremost a marketing and branding company, which has been slowly building its portfolio of trademarked brand names that could each represent on their own major partnerships and joint ventures going forward.

Current product and brand names under Real Brands:

- Humboldt Brands®
- Hemp-Aid®
- HempAid®
- CBD Pharmacy™
- Omegahemp™

Jerry Pearring, the CEO of Real Brands commented, "As the demand for CBD infused products continues to grow, we intend to create marketing strategies in at least three CBD Categories: smokables, edibles and topical balms and lotions."
