U.S. Hemp Brokerage (USHB) announced recently it will open an office in Tampa, Fla., to cultivate relationships with retailers and distributors in the Southeast U.S. The Boulder County, Colo.-based business provides professional brokerage services to hemp farmers, processors and manufacturers of industrial hemp materials and products.
“As a long time Floridian who grew up in the Tampa area, I have always had my eye on expanding to this market,” said USHB founder Jeff Cole. “We are launching our John Budd convenient store line in Florida, starting with Orlando, the Tampa Bay area and the greater Miami area. Our staff in Tampa will be overseeing the rollout of this program and we are currently hiring support staff and sales representatives.”
John Budd is a new organic full-spectrum CBD product line capturing the rugged individualism of the American working man. The brand is named after and founded by 61-year-old Colorado rancher John Budd, whose family has a 100-year legacy of ranching, farming and mining in Colorado.
USHB’s services include brand curating and polishing, pricing analysis and strategy, a full creative services suite including art direction, digital media, promotional schedules, and media recommendations.
The company is known for bringing top-tier hemp brands to retail via longstanding relationships that not only provide for successful placement, but also favorable outcomes for private label manufacturing for retail stores.
Since 2015, USHB team members have actively farmed, processed and developed brands utilizing high value industrial hemp. The products and brands it represents have been carefully selected with a close eye on current good manufacturing practice (CGMP), compliance and traceability that USHB can stand behind.
