National supplements retailer GNC is going to start selling Charlotte’s Web Holdings (OTC: CWBHF), Inc. full spectrum hemp extract products. Initial shipments of six varieties of Charlotte’s Web Gummies will be available for purchase at GNC retail locations across 24 states, with the intent to expand into additional states.
“To best reach and serve consumers we rely, in part, on strong partnerships with proven mass retail partners,” said Jacques Tortoroli, Chief Executive Officer of Charlotte’s Web. “GNC’s established retail footprint adds depth to our reach domestically and broadens consumer access to our high-quality hemp CBD products. We expect GNC will become one of our largest retail customers this year, and we are excited about the growth provided by bringing our two leading brands together.”
This is welcome news for the CBD company that has seen its fortunes come and go. As one of the original leaders in the medical marijuana space, Charlotte’s Web had the largest market share of any CBD company. However, extreme competition cut into its lead along with a lack of direction from the FDA on how to label and market CBD products. The company announced a corporate reorganization last week and has struggled to maintain its market share and reduce costs.
GNC is also no stranger to challenges. The company faced bankruptcy and was acquired by Harman Pharmaceutical group. It closed about 40% of its stores and sales fell by almost 60%. It named a new CEO and CFO as the company emerges from Chapter 11.
