Sep 22, 2021 (Financial News Media via COMTEX) -- Palm Beach, FL - September 22, 2021 – FinancialNewsMedia.com News Commentary – CBD infused products have weaved their way into almost every corner of our daily lives. CBD infused products are categorized with respect to the source (hemp and marijuana), type (CBD-edibles, confectionery products, bakery products, beverages, non-alcoholic beverages and alcoholic beverages, coffee & tea products, CBD-oil and extracts, CBD-personal care products, skincare products, haircare products, deodorants and perfumes, and other personal care products, CBD-smoke & vape products, CBD-supplements, CBD-pet products, and other CBD-products that seem to emerge almost every day. The growth of this market is mainly attributed to the rising demand and increasing legalization of cannabis, growing application of cannabis in cancer, and health benefits offered by cannabis-infused products are also a few of the key factors driving the growth of the CBD-infused products market. A report from ResearchAndMarkets said that the CBD-infused Products Market is expected to reach $216.8 billion by 2028, at a CAGR of 45.6% during the forecast period, 2021-2028. The report said: "Based on source, the CBD-infused products market is mainly segmented into hemp and marijuana. The hemp segment is estimated to account for the largest share of the CBD-infused products market in 2021. The large share of this segment is mainly attributed to its lower THC concentrations, which decrease or eliminate its psychoactive effects and increase hemp-derived products for various medical applications. Also, its anti-inflammatory, anti-aging, antioxidant properties, and high effectiveness of CBD extracted from hemp is a key factor for the large share of this segment. However, it is also expected to witness significant growth, as some governments regulate the concentration of THC and permit only hemp with an especially low THC content."

ResearchAndMarkets concluded: "Based on type, the CBD-infused products market is segmented into CBD-edibles, CBD-oil and extracts, CBD-personal care products, CBD-smoke & vape products, CBD-supplements, CBD-pet products, and other CBD-products. The CBD-edibles segment is estimated to account for the largest share of the CBD-infused products market in 2021. The large share of this segment is mainly attributed to the growing popularity of recreational cannabis, increasing demand for food infused by cannabis such as THC and CBD, rising adoption of CBD in different verticals such as confectionery, bakery, etc., and cannabis consumer are looking for alternatives to smoking cannabis. Also, the increasing use of CBD-edibles to treat psychiatric disorders, neurological disorders, and cancer, along with pain control, is expected to drive the demand for CBD-edibles. However, it is also expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period."
Pure Extracts Technologies Corp. /zigman2/quotes/202137327/delayed PRXTF +5.22% /zigman2/quotes/222359307/delayed CA:PULL +4.35% (PULL.CNX) BREAKING NEWS – Pure Extracts Commencing Build-Out of Extraction Facility in Michigan – Pure Extracts Technologies Corp. ("Pure Extracts" or the "Company") a plant-based extraction company focused on cannabis, hemp, functional mushrooms and the rapidly emerging psychedelic sector, is pleased to announce that its wholly owned subsidiary, Pure Extracts USA Inc., is fast-tracking the build-out of the extraction facility it is designing with its Joint Venture (JV) partner, Golden Harvests, LLC, at their existing 80,000 sq. ft. site in Bay City, Michigan.
"The Michigan cannabis market is large and growing quickly, with sales reaching a record $171 million in July of this year, up 56% from a year ago," said Ben Nikolaevsky, CEO of Pure Extracts. Adding that, "We plan to attack this market aggressively with a goal of reaching a run rate of $20 million in annual sales by the end of 2022."
After a successful in-person meeting at the site between the senior executives of both companies, and a detailed study of the Michigan market, it was obvious to both parties that this is a significant opportunity without any dominant brands to compete against. When coupled with Golden Harvest's existing brand recognition and distribution to over 100 of the 400+ dispensaries in the State, adding concentrates to the product mix is a natural next step.
In addition to Pure Extracts' award-winning full spectrum oil (FSO) Pure Pulls vapes and tinctures and its THC and ultra-high potency CBD Pure Chews edibles, the JV will be adding live resin concentrates and cartridges to its portfolio of branded products.
The JV plans to commence the build-out of 5,900 square feet of existing space in the 80,000 sq. ft. facility once building permits have been issued by Bay City, which should occur in October. The JV also plans to produce Golden Harvests branded concentrates, cartridges, edibles and tinctures. The JV will also consider building dedicated greenhouse production to provide cheaper processing input for house brands and available white label opportunities.
