SAN DIEGO – CV Sciences, Inc. (OTCQB:CVSI) (the “Company”, “CV Sciences”, “our”, “us” or “we”), a preeminent supplier and manufacturer of hemp cannabidiol (CBD) products, announced today that it received Nutritional Outlook’s 2020 Best of the Industry Awards, in the Retail brand/product category. CV Sciences was recognized for setting the stage in 2020 to show how hemp-derived CBD companies can not only secure a mainstream audience but also charter a new course outside of the CBD category.
In 2020, CV Sciences launched a powerful pair of non-CBD immune supporting products: CV™ Defense and CV™ Acute, which opened markets and sales channels for the Company, including major e-commerce retailers not currently accessible by CBD-based products. Both are made with the same rigorous manufacturing and testing standards CV Sciences is known for.
“Congratulations to all of the 2020 Best of the Industry Award winners,” said Mike Hennessy Jr., president and CEO of MJH Life Sciences™, the parent company of Nutritional Outlook®. “Each winner raised the bar for excellence in its own way. Thanks to their trailblazing achievements in 2020, this year’s winners will help shape, for the better, the state of the natural product, dietary supplement, and food and beverage industries for years to come.”
Nutritional Outlook® is the industry’s leading multimedia resource for manufacturers of dietary supplements, healthy foods and beverage. Their 2020 Best of the Industry Awards recognizes individuals, groups, and companies whose initiatives in 2020 set a new standard for excellence and positively influenced the natural product, dietary supplement, and food and beverage industries. Best of the Industry Award winners are selected by Nutritional Outlook®’s esteemed editors based on their survey of market achievements.
“We are honored to receive this recognition for our commitment to building consumer confidence and trust in the safety and quality of our products,” said Joseph Dowling, Chief Executive Officer of CV Sciences. “We look forward to continuing to innovate in 2021 and bringing additional products to market that improve quality of life through nature and science.”
