Ryan Crandall, Chief Product Officer and SVP of Sales at MariMed, Inc., said, “Betty’s Eddies achieved significant sales growth in 2019 and we are now focused on expanding this brand’s availability in both existing and new markets during 2020. We appreciate the overwhelming customer support Betty’s Eddies has received, whose market feedback drives our constant development and improvement to ensure that we produce the safest, best tasting, and most effective edibles in cannabis.”

As we continue to roll out Betty’s Eddies and our other strategic licensed brands to more regions in 2020, we believe this will dramatically drive our revenues as we expand our presence into new markets where the demand for high quality, infused cannabis products continues to grow rapidly.”
