Alexander M. Salgado, CEO and co-founder of Veritas Farms, commented, “Following our record setting revenue growth in 2018, Veritas Farms has emerged as one of the leading and most trusted fully-integrated hemp companies in the country.  During the first three months of 2019, the Company continued to build on that strong reputation with the successful launch of the Veritas Farms™ brand of full-spectrum hemp extract products in some of the largest traditional brick-and-mortar retailers in the country, such as CVS Pharmacy stores.

“That increased acceptance from mainstream consumers and traditional retail distribution channels helped boost Veritas Farms’ sales to new record levels again and added even more momentum to the entire sector.  To leverage this enormous opportunity, the Company intends to increase its already considerable cultivation and manufacturing capacities, as well as expand its proven sales, marketing, and brand building programs.

“The Company also has plans to launch two additional large-market full spectrum hemp extract product lines during the second half of the year.  Both planned product lines are expected to achieve significant sales levels.”  

Mr. Salgado concluded, “We are in a strong position for continued growth during the balance of 2019 as more people try our expanding line of Veritas Farms™ brand products each day for the first time.  We are confident that our lab tested full-spectrum hemp extract products will exceed the high expectations of every consumer, health care provider, and distributor.”

Veritas Farms™ brand products can be found at several leading online and brick-and-mortar retailers across the United States, including select CVS Pharmacy stores.
