Global Widget’s Hemp Bombs Celebrates Five Years
– CBD Retail Trends
Global Widget™, the premier manufacturer and distributor of the industry-leading CBD brand, Hemp Bombs®, is celebrating its flagship brand’s five-year anniversary. After years of large-scale growth, Hemp Bombs has become the gold standard in the emerging industry.
“It’s hard to believe it has been five years already,” said Kevin Collins, co-founder of Global Widget. “We have grown the company to more than 300 employees and have introduced hundreds of products, but our success all along has been because of the loyalty and support of our terrific customers, retailers and business partners. We have nothing but immense gratitude for the opportunity to serve them.”
Hemp Bombs launched in 2016 with a two-count package of CBD capsules as its first product. Today, the brand features more than 100 SKUs, including an award-winning line of CBD Gummies and an extensive selection of edibles, topicals, vape and pet products.
Recently, Florida Commissioner of Agriculture and Consumer Services Nikki Fried toured the company. “I’ve had the opportunity over the last five years to see everything from how THC grows and manufacturing out in the West Coast to the East Coast and everything here in the state of Florida,” Fried said. “You have a terrific, amazing operation here.”
Fried appointed Holly Bell, Florida’s first-ever cannabis director. “When I got the facility tour, I thought, ‘This is the gold standard. This is what the industry needs,’” noted Bell.
Hemp Bombs has been the category captain in the convenience store space earning 60% market share five years and counting. Global Widget is looking forward to continuing to deliver the industry’s best CBD and CPG products in the years ahead.
