cbdMD Successfully Launches Into a Growing Japanese Market

Charlotte, North Carolina--(Newsfile Corp. - November 29, 2022) - cbdMD, Inc. (NYSE American: YCBD) (NYSE American: YCBDpA), one of the nation's leading and most highly trusted and recognized health and wellness companies, has announced it has completed a successful initial launch into the emerging Japanese market.

According to Brightfield Group, a leading CBD research firm, Japan is the largest CBD market by revenue in the Asia Pacific and Middle East region. cbdMD believes Japan is poised to become one of the next big international CBD markets, with a cultural emphasis on natural health solutions and one of the largest consumer health economies in the world. A year in the making, cbdMD is wrapping up its third strong month of sales of its Japanese specific portfolio of products launched under the cbdMD Pro line. Products will be sold to end consumers through our Japanese website. This marks further expansion into international markets, coming off recent developments in the EU and UK as the Company was one of the first to earn Validation from the Food Safety Authority.

"We're looking forward to serving the Japanese public and making our cbdMD portfolio of wellness products available to be added as part of their daily routine and lifestyle," said President of cbdMD, Inc., Kevin MacDermott. "In regard to CBD, the health conscious Japanese consumer still represents an underserved market. We believe that by offering cbdMD's high-quality products we will be able to attract a whole new group of consumers looking for natural alternatives. We are seeing strong interest from both the elderly and working population who are looking for natural remedies to everyday issues, including occasional pain and discomfort. This expansion marks the next phase of international growth as we look to continue bringing our globally recognized brand to new emerging markets."
