1933’s Canna Hemp announced earlier this week that it has made its products available for sale through the retail giant, Walmart.com. Walmart currently occupies one of the top spots in the hierarchy of online retail, as one of the largest online retailers for supplements and natural health products. Health products have been a major seller within Walmart.com’s online marketplace, and Walmart expects online sales to grow by more than thirty percent by the end of 2020.
“Walmart has been the next natural move for Canna Hemp, as the brand continues its expansion throughout 2020. Understanding the online marketplace and maintaining a stable e-commerce presence is vital for success in today’s web-based economy. Currently, Canna Hemp’s products are available through its website, cannahemp.com, as well as a host of other e-commerce sites, with more to come as the brand continues to grow.”
