GLEN ALLEN, VA / ACCESSWIRE / January 17, 2019 / Exactus Inc. (OTCQB: EXDI) is pleased to announce its entrance into the CBD market in conjunction with Ceed2Med, LLC's ("C2M") acquisition of a controlling ownership interest in Exactus, Inc. and a Master Product Development and Supply Agreement with Ceed2Med, LLC for hemp-based Cannabidiol ("CBD") products with full genetic traceability. C2M operates and manufactures at cGMP facilities and processes raw material through a number of facilities in order to produce phyto-cannabinoid rich ingredients, including isolates, distillates, water soluble, and proprietary formulations. Exactus has a number of hemp-based CBD products in the pipeline and expects to offer tinctures, edibles, capsules, topical solutions and animal health products manufactured by C2M commencing the first quarter of 2019.

In December 2018, President Trump signed the $867 billion Farm Bill which recharacterized hemp to the lowest-level listed drug (schedule 5). This clarified that mass hemp production in the United States is federally lawful, as is its transportation across state lines. Hemp is defined in the United States as cannabis with less than 0.3% Tetrahydrocannabinol ("THC"). CBD, a non-psychoactive cannabinoid found in cannabis, has had a surge in popularity over the past several years based on a wide range of potential health benefits and uses.
Philip Young, CEO of Exactus said, "We are thrilled to have such a highly respected partner as we create a new business model in the hemp marketplace. By applying the highest standards, from the initial seed selection all the way through the production and distribution of the commercial product, we plan to be a leader in quality, innovation and commercialization." Young further commented, "This quality will be evident and part of every product line we produce, whether it is for our proprietary product line or for other commercial partners who want to access our product development pathway."
Emiliano Ailo, Co-Founder of Ceed2Med added, "Partnering with Exactus is an exciting opportunity for our company. It is an honor to work with a company that has the same commitment to quality and a desire to lead the hemp marketplace with the highest standards. We believe our scientific commitment from seed selection, through cultivation, harvesting and manufacturing, combined with our innovative seed-to-sale traceability is setting the standard in the hemp market and ensures premium pricing and higher product safety over others"
