“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.”

Recently, Florida Commissioner of Agriculture and Consumer Services Nikki Fried, toured the company, saying, “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. You have a terrific, amazing operation here.” Holly Bell, Florida’s first-ever cannabis director appointed by Fried, added, “When I got the facility tour, I thought, ‘This is the gold standard. This is what the industry needs.'”

From the start, Hemp Bombs quickly became the original CBD brand retailers and, most importantly, their customers, trusted.

“Hemp Bombs is the category captain in convenience with over 60 percent market share five years and counting,” said Vince Gillen, Vice President of Sales. “We are very excited about the opportunity for growth and new store placements given that many large chain retailers are not yet carrying CBD or CBD gummies.”

Last year, as a part of its Year of More campaign, Hemp Bombs increased the milligrams of CBD in most of its products, including its CBD gummies. Later that year, Hemp Bombs CBD gummies were voted a 2020 Retailer Choice Best New Product by more than 1,000 retailers in the 17th annual CSP Daily News awards program.
