- FinancialNewsMedia.com News Commentary - PALM BEACH, Fl., Nov. 15, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Out of all cannabinoids, cannabidiol is most widely used for therapeutic reasons due to the lack of psychoactive effects. In many medical applications, cannabidiol oil is used, such as anxiety and depression treatment, stress relief, diabetes prevention, pain relief, cancer symptom relief, and inflammation. Due to the increasing adoption of CBD-based products to treat ailments, the global cannabidiol market is anticipated to grow at a lucrative rate over the next several years. A report from Grand View Research said that the global cannabidiol market size was valued at USD 2.8 billion in 2020 and is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 21.2% from 2021 to 2028. Due to its healing properties, the demand for cannabidiol (CBD) for health and wellness purposes is high, which is the major factor driving the market growth. In addition, the rising acceptance and use of products due to government approvals is a major factor expected to boost production for CBD-infused products. The report said: "Increasing awareness of cannabidiol's therapeutic benefits has influenced a buyer to buy cannabidiol products, regardless of their cost. As these have a greater profit margin, commercial retailers are now focusing on selling cannabis-based products. Numerous health and wellness retailers are offering CBD-based products, such as Rite Aid, CVS Health, and Walgreens Boots Alliance. In addition, CVS Health decides to offer CBD topicals all over its 800 stores and Walgreens Boots Alliance is selling CBD-containing topicals across 1500 of its stores in the U.S. Active Companies in the markets today include Grove, Inc. /zigman2/quotes/227687276/composite GRVI +1.63% , cbdMD, Inc. /zigman2/quotes/201949781/composite YCBD -0.01% , Charlotte's Web Holdings, Inc.

Company ended quarter with $13.0 million in cash

Allan Marshall, Chief Executive Officer of Grove, stated, "Grove's first quarter financial results reflect strong growth in revenues, net income and cash flow as our team continues to execute our vision to transform the landscape of how hemp and wellness products are produced, bought and sold. Seasonally, our first quarter is typically our slowest. The $8.4 million signifies exponential growth and sets us up for a strong fiscal year. Our revenue increased primarily due to strong growth in the sales of new products from our direct-to-consumer business.
"We made two significant acquisitions, substantially broadening our footprint in strong growth sectors. VitaMedica, completed in August gives Grove a solid presence in the Nutraceutical market, and the August acquisition announcement of Interactive Offers, stakes our presence in the Programmatic Advertising market, estimated by some to be a $95.5 billion market by 2026. Continued cash flow growth allowed us to make these acquisitions without a meaningful reduction in our cash balance, which ended the quarter at $13.0 million. We look forward to continued momentum through the balance of the 2022 fiscal year."
