Dustin Blitchok

CBD oil maker cbdMD Inc (NYSE: YCBD) reported third-quarter net sales of more than $8 million on Wednesday — a 42% quarter-over-quarter increase.

The company lost $8.26 million in the quarter and attributed $2.1 million of that loss to a non-cash impairment charge of intangible assets tied to its prior licensing and brand management businesses.

On May 1, Level Brands Inc. changed its name and New York Stock Exchange ticker symbol from "LEVB" to its current listing, becoming the first company in the CBD space to list on the U.S. stock exchange.

Another $2 million in losses were chalked up a non-cash charge related to stock option expenses.

The fully diluted net loss per share in the third quarter amounted to $1.19 per share.

The stock was trading higher by 1.28% to $4.76 in Wednesday's after-hours session.

"We've increased the number of locations cbdMD products are available in by 500% since the acquisition of the brand last December, and with the building momentum of retailer acceptance subsequent to the passage of the Farm Bill, we are pursuing every opportunity available to us vigorously as we continue to work to build cbdMD into the top recognized brand in the industry," cbdMD Chairman and co-CEO Martin Sumichrast said in a statement.

The company's e-commerce platform generated 60% of its net sales, according to cbdMD. The CBD products have placement in more than 3,000 "doors," up from about 600 in December 2018, cbdMD said.

CbdMD had $11.6 million in cash on hand as of June 30, the company said.
