n all-female led CBD firm on a mission to become “The Hut Group of cannabis” officially launched today after raising £1 million.
Hall, who spent a decade working in M&A and corporate finance, told the Standard: “Our ambition is to launch The Hut Group of cannabis, and to launch a new consumer brands group to bring substance and style to the global CBD wellness market, which is something we feel has been sorely missing.
CBD stands for cannabidiol – the non-psychoative compound in cannabis plants. It is used medicinally to treat conditions including insomnia. Bank of America Merrill Lynch has estimated its global consumer market is set to reach a value of $39bn by 2032.
“It is time for the professionalisation of this industry.
Hall and co plan to “leverage celebrity and retail partnerships to unlock the mainstream potential of cannabis” as they believe there is a space for products containing CBD without it being “a shock factor”.
Thom Brodeur, CEO of Sky Wellness states: “From the beginning we have set out to make CBD a centerpiece of consumers’ health and wellness, and to make it an accessible and easy part of people’s everyday lives no matter where they shop. Our ecommerce team has thoroughly vetted these partnerships, and we’re looking forward to aggressively expanding consumer access both online and in brick-and-mortar retail going into 2022.”
