DELRAY BEACH, Fla., Nov. 20, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Exactus, Inc. (EXDI) (the “Company”), an industrial hemp farm operator and manufacturer of hemp-derived phytocannabinoid products, today announced that it has entered into a supply agreement to provide Ceed2Med a minimum of 10,000 lbs of 2019 harvested flower from the Company’s 200 acre farms in Southwest Oregon.
Emiliano Aloi, President and CEO of Exactus states, “Ceed2Med is a leader in distribution of high-quality bulk hemp products along the east coast of the United States. We are establishing a solid supply and distribution dynamic that allows them to service their demand with our high-quality product, while we maximize the returns of our bulk flower segment with minimal operational liabilities. By working closely with Ceed2Med, we are accessing a much higher price bracket than we would with bulk flower with our current operations. Our focus can now be on expanding our finished product segment which has a much larger profit opportunity for us.”
Bobby Yampolsky, CEO and Co-Founder of Ceed2Med and Chairman of the Board of Exactus said, “We are a major shareholder and have supported Exactus from the beginning. The quality of hemp flower produced off of the Exactus farms is extremely impressive and we are comfortable putting Ceed2Med’s reputation behind their products. Ceed2Med has an extensive client portfolio and we know that this product meets the highest quality requirements, allowing Exactus to increase the returns for all shareholders, by harnessing a big portion of the upside from our distribution business.”
Pursuant to the terms of the Agreement, Exactus will supply Ceed2Med a minimum of 10,000 lbs of bulk untrimmed dry industrial hemp flower in 150 lb humidity-controlled totes. Ceed2Med, in turn, will complete the conditioning, trimming and packaging of the product as per current wholesale market needs and distribute it to its clients at a higher profitability point, sharing Exactus in the upside of the operation.

Hemp is a federally legal type of cannabis plant containing less than 0.3% THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), which is the psychoactive component of the cannabis plant. After over 40 years of prohibition, the Agricultural Improvement Act of 2018, known as the 2018 Farm Bill, legalized hemp at the federal level. Hemp production will be regulated by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the States. As a result, in 2019 hemp was generally removed from the Controlled Substances Act (CSA) and enforcement by the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA).
