The anticipated growth comes on the heels of increased visibility in the industry following participation in a high-profile CBD study. HempFusion was one of 12 CBD companies selected to participate in groundbreaking research by ValidCare regarding CBD and human safety. ValidCare designed the study to address previous questions the FDA brought forward regarding the use of CBD products. As a part of this study, HempFusion was included in this human trials to help determine if the daily use of full-spectrum CBD or CBD isolate products impacted the human liver (https://ibn.fm/FeYZg).
Results released in March 2021 show validation for the use of CBD products and no liver toxicity, as detailed by HempFusion co-founder and CEO Jason Mitchell, ND, in a press release. “We believe this is a pivotal step forward for the CBD industry, and we look forward to continuing to find ways to provide consumers with safe and quality products,” Dr. Mitchell said. “When specifically looking at how our products performed in the study, having no liver toxicity only bolsters what we have always stated about our products. We believe they are safe,” Dr. Mitchell continued.
After a recent decline in stock price, Mitchell again took to the media outlets, underlining that the company is transparent with investors and that all material information is available. He assured the public and investors that the recent developments were not caused by an “undisclosed development” within the company, and reiterated that HempFusion is in the strongest position it has ever been for where the CBD industry is heading and what new regulatory development loom on the horizon.

HempFusion’s position seems to be reinforced by recent events, including it being named the second in the U.S. for CBD Brand Awareness by the Brightfield Group, and Probulin finishing 2020 as one of the fastest-growing probiotic brand out of the Top 15 in the U.S., according to SPINS.
