Sleep aid, pain cream win pair of inaugural CBD award categories in prestigious annual independent consumer vote.
Nationally recognized consumer cannabidiol (CBD) brand cbdMD Inc. has won two categories in the prestigious 2020 Product of the Year USA Awards organized by independent research firm Kantar Media Group. CBD PM and CBD Freeze products have been voted the winners in the CBD Sleep Aid and CBD Topical categories, respectively.
This is the first year that Product of the Year USA provided a category for CBD companies. The recognition is America’s largest consumer-voted award for product innovation; 40,000 voters participated in an online study organized by Kantar. Ken Cohn, cbdMD chief marketing officer, accepted the award on behalf of the company during a special ceremony in New York City.
CBD PM is a premium sleep aid containing superior broad spectrum CBD, melatonin and a unique blend of soothing herbs. The CBD Freeze combines the pain-relieving properties of menthol with the natural power of domestically sourced CBD.
“These awards are the culmination of everyone’s effort, and I couldn’t be more proud,” said Martin Sumichrast, chairman and co-CEO of cbdMD. “As a company, we’ve worked tirelessly to set the standard for quality in this industry, and the Product of the Year distinction provides real validity to all our efforts.”
Cohn added, “We’re excited to be recognized amongst the elite companies and brands that Product of the Year highlights every year.”
The Product of the Year award operates in 38 countries around the world. The distinctive red “Voted Product of the Year” seal will be leveraged across all marketing channels, including product packaging, advertising, promotions, social media accounts and brand website.
