A pioneer in the category for the past ten years, Dixie's Future of CBD & Cannabis lounge will champion the cannabis plant and spotlight the industry as it emerges from prohibition and enters the mainstream. As part of the showcase, Dixie will provide hands-on experiences and educate attendees on its full portfolio of THC and CBD-infused products, including hemp-derived CBD cosmeceutical brand, Kuida, developed to bring the benefits of CBD to a comprehensive portfolio of skin and body care products for women. Once approved by the regulatory authorities, Kuida will be launched stateside via an exclusive distribution partnership between Dixie and Khiron Life Sciences, subject to TSX approval.
FounderMade is known for bringing the most fearless and inspiring leaders from around the world together under one roof, and for unveiling some of the most forward-thinking consumer brands in modern history, said Chuck Smith, CEO of Dixie Brands. Dixie has been perfecting the art and science of crafting quality infused-cannabis products for nearly a decade and is proud to be a category leader. We're excited to use this platform to share our broad portfolio of high-quality CBD and THC-infused products with those who are passionate about learning more about what the cannabis plant can offer.
At the Future of CBD & Cannabis lounge, in addition to learning about Dixie's robust portfolio of Dixie Brands THC and CBD-infused products, event attendees will have the opportunity to engage with Aceso Hemp, Dixie's growing line of indication-specific, hemp-derived supplements that promote optimal health. As one of the first entrants into the category, Aceso Hemp brings a deep understanding of the industry's complex regulatory structure and expertise in the production of safe, effective and compliant products that can be sold across the United States.
Dixie's Future of CBD & Cannabis lounge will also unveil Colombian-based Khiron Life Sciences' (TSXV KHRN), (OTCQB KHRNF), (Frankfurt A2JMZC), Kuida brand to the U.S. market for the first time as part of the brands' Joint Venture that was announced in January. The Kuida product portfolio includes body scrubs, contours, body lotions and more, all featuring proprietary CBDerm technology, a methodology that contains antioxidant and anti-aging properties, quick absorption and light texture.
Additionally, attendees will have the opportunity to participate in an interactive fireside chat held within the Future of CBD and Cannabis lounge to learn more about Dixie and the overall cannabis industry. Following the summit, Dixie will co-host the post-show happy hour from 430pm - 630pm.
We couldn't be more proud to welcome Dixie Brands to The FounderMade Discovery Show. Our goal is to showcase brands that are completely changing the face of the industry and Dixie's commitment to quality products and consumer education is second to none, said Meghan Asha, CEO of FounderMade. Their innovation in the cannabis space is exactly the kind of forward-thinking that will inform future policy, products and industry trends.
The FounderMade Discovery Show will take place on June 26, 2019 at Spring Studios in New York City (6 St. Johns Lane, New York, NY 10013), and Dixie's Future of Cannabis lounge will be open to guests from 9am - 4pm ET.
