BOULDER, CO, Oct. 16, 2018 /CNW/ - (CSE: CWEB; OTCQX: CWBHF) Charlotte's Web Holdings, Inc. ("Charlotte's Web" or the "Company"), the market share leader in hemp-based CBD wellness products, has surpassed 3000 retail locations across the United States. At the end of 2017, Charlotte's Web products were sold in approximately 2,000 locations. The Company disclosed today that it surpassed its 2018 year-end goal of 3,000 locations during the 3rd quarter.

With CBD gaining mainstream market momentum, Charlotte's Web, the industry pioneer and category leader in hemp-based CBD, has expanded its suite of product offerings across a wider variety of retailers, from small specialty health food stores to now including regional pharmacy and grocery chains. The Company recently added more than 40 Bartell drug stores in the North West.
Mr. Moallem added, "While we are thrilled to beat our retail expectations for the year, we know this is just the beginning of our continued expansion both domestically and worldwide. We are deeply committed to the millions of people who benefit from Charlotte's Web and we will continue breaking new ground to ensure our products are made available in as many retail locations as possible."
