HempMeds® was also the first-ever company to receive historic federal government import approvals for its CBD products in the nations of Argentina
, as well as the first to have CBD products listed in the Prescribers Digital Reference and one of the first to be certified by the U.S. Hemp Authority.

. "Recent predictions from Nielsen showcase that the U.S. hemp-based CBD market could be a $2.25 billion
to $2.75 billion
industry in 2020 and with a growing trend of celebrities talking about their CBD use this could be a real possibility."
