In August 2013, CNN aired a documentary featuring Charlotte Figi, whose well-being had significantly improved after the use of the Stanley brothers’ customized extract. Over the last decade, the Stanley Brothers and the Company have evolved from the proprietary development of a single industrial hemp strain, to a market leader in the production and distribution of innovative hemp-based, cannabidiol (CBD) wellness products.
Charlotte’s Web is focused on building a global CPG company. It is a vertically integrated business that ensures high-quality, efficacy and consistency. The company cultivates on over 700 acres of irrigated farmland and utilizes a 137,000-square-foot manufacturing and R&D facility. Charlotte’s Web also uses a direct-to-consumer distribution network through the company’s flagship website. With the acquisition of Abacus Health Products, the company distributes to more than 22,000 unique retail locations.
Charlotte’s Web is positioning itself to enter the U.S. cannabis wellness market and other federally legal markets. The company has entered into an option purchase agreement with the Stanley Brothers, which operates in California, Colorado and Florida, and has plans to expand in eight additional states.
