News, Top Story


CBD sales are projected to reach $16.8 billion by 2025, according to Brightfield Group, but the market remains extremely fragmented. With a glut of non-differentiated and low-quality products, regulators are poised to introduce new rules governing the market as consumers increasingly seek out the highest quality options that they can trust.

Let’s take a look at HempFusion’s unique approach to the market, forward-thinking management team and efforts to scale revenue in 2020 and beyond by addressing these issues, as well as its plans to go public on the TSX on January 6, 2021.

An Eye for Compliance

HempFusion uses DNA-verified industrial hemp sourced from European farms that have grown hemp for hundreds of years. While many CBD manufacturers use a hodgepodge of extracts from cannabis and hemp plants, the company’s focus on high quality industrial hemp is important as the U.S. rolls out new rules for ingestible products over the coming months.

The organic hemp is shipped to six different co-packers across the country where it is processed before being shipped to a centrally located warehouse in Topeka, Kansas for fulfillment.

Exceptional Management

The best products in the world aren’t a guarantee of success—the management team is ultimately responsible for executing on a business plan and delivering results. Fortunately, HempFusion has amassed an experienced team in this industry and has already begun demonstrating their ability to execute in a challenging COVID-19 environment.

The experienced management team includes:

  • CEO Dr. Jason Mitchell, N.D. has over 20 years of experience in the natural products industry and is a naturopathic doctor. In his previous role at Country Life, as the Chief Science Officer, he was responsible for the successful creation, reformulation, and launch of over 300 leading products.
  • CRO Jon Vissner has over 25 years of sales and marketing experience. At Navajo, he grew annual sales from $60 million to $128 million in less than three years while tripling the number of $1+ million revenue generating customers.
  • CMO Ola Lessard is the President of the U.S. Hemp Roundtable and has over 25 years of experience building successful brands. In her previous role with Barleans, she was responsible for one of the most successful CBD brands in America.

The company also has a highly-qualified Board of Directors with experience in public market finance, legal, consumer packaged goods, and M&A and regulatory compliance, which are critical areas for the company over the coming months as it continues its planned expansion.

Planned Sales Expansion

The company has expanded its product line to include OTC Drug Listed Topicals, which are critical for entry into the lucrative Food & Drug Mass channel. HempFusion also targets the expansion of its retail distribution to over 10,000 retail locations, and plans to upsize existing relationships with Amazon, Vitamin Shoppe and Whole Foods.

In addition to the natural channel, the company is seeking expansion into ecommerce, mass market (FDM) retail, convenience channels and doctor/practitioner networks. These efforts could significantly expand its revenue footprint when combined with its growing list of unique product lines—such as its OTC Drug Listed Topicals.

Going Public on the TSX

HempFusion is well equipped to capitalize on the nascent CBD market in the United States—and soon—across international markets. With its focus on compliance, the company believes its products have significant competitive advantages that cannot easily be replicated, while its expanding distribution sets the stage for scalability in 2020 and beyond.

The company is going public on the TSX in Canada—a senior exchange comparable to the NYSE or NASDAQ in the U.S.—on January 6, 2021. At that point, retail investors interested in participating in the company’s potential upside will have an opportunity to become shareholders.
