September 9, 2019

NORWOOD, Mass., Sept. 09, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MariMed Inc. (OTCQX: MRMD), a premier cannabis and hemp multi-state operator focused on health and wellness, announced today its MariMed Hemp division will exhibit its Florance™ brand of CBD products at Natural Products Expo East being held at the Baltimore Convention Center on September 11-14, 2019.

The expo will bring together more than 27,000 attendees including brands, buyers, investors, entrepreneurs and industry experts in the health, wellness and eco-conscious community.

The Florance brand is sold in the U.S. and EU through online distributors, wholesalers, pharmacies and physicians. MariMed invites attendees to stop by the company’s booth #4902 where it will exhibit its full line of Florance Hemp CBD products in several categories, including health, beauty, pain and sports.

Dr. Jokubas Zirbucus, MariMed’s chief innovation officer and one of the founders of the Florance brand, has organized an experienced medical team to develop new formulations that produce consistent and satisfying results for consumers and patients.

Following its investment in GenCanna Global, the Kentucky-based leader in production of GMP quality CBD derived from hemp, MariMed formed MariMed Hemp to build and distribute a portfolio of innovative CBD brands and pursue business opportunities in the emerging hemp and CBD industry.
