The announcement was made as the company unveiled a range of 14 Natera brand items to coincide with the FoodEx Japan show in Tokyo.
The products include three nanomist oral sprays for pain discomfort, brain cognisance and anti-anxiety; three nano-formulated CBD topicals for localised pain and stress relief; two CBD 2oz shots, one for energy, one for sleep; and a CBD / herbal blend formulated capsule for pain relief.
Naturally Splendid president J.Craig Goodwin said , “We are most pleased to be able to complete these two exclusive sales agreements, which combined represent a comprehensive CBD formulated line of products.
“Japan will be our initial target. However, our exclusive sales agreements cover multiple countries and we will be systematically launching this CBD product line in countries that have already been identified. We will continue to source additional CBD formulated products to augment the CBD products which we now offer.”
Naturally Splendid CEO Dave Eto added: “This now provides our new product line Natera CBD with versatility in marketing and also allows us to be nimble when approaching new customers. We see this as a positive step towards internationally branding our entire division.”
