“For the last few months, our team, vendors, and partners have been working hard to bring the vision of CBD Iced tea and CBD Iced Coffee to market and we have created an amazing product that will be the leader in this market sector.”

“The labels look amazing and we will be placing them on social media very soon.”

Medico added: “Darcie has been an amazing addition to our team. We have already seen an increase in sales over the few short weeks she has been working with us. With her connections that she brings to the table, Darcie has scheduled meetings with four new distributors so far.

“With new laws in place as of January 1, 2019, we are experiencing very positive changes in the perception of CBD and can’t wait to provide all of our current and future customers with our new CBD beverage line.”
