JAN. 3, 2019 - CANNABIS GUMMIES COMING SOON TO THE MEXICAN MARKET
will reach the Mexican market this year, with the first batch of CBD
“gummies” arriving on shelves by the end of this month.
CBD, or cannabidiol, is
one of at least 113 identified cannabinoids in hemp plants,
accounting for up to 40% of the plant’s extract.
CBD Life COO and founder
Janko Ruíz de Chávez told the newspaper El Financiero that
the CBD gummies, sold in fruit and berry mixes, will allow the
Mexican public to get to know the benefits of CBD in a safe way.
The product “is a
pleasant way to know the ingredient, and it is oriented toward minor
ailments like anxiety, stress, pain, depression, all those imbalances
of the nervous system . . . it’s not like a [tablet of Alprazolam]
that can calm your nerves
but is way more aggressive,” said Ruíz.
