HOBGOOD, N.C., Jan. 31, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Criticality, a North Carolina-based agricultural hemp company, announces the expansion of its consumer products under its brand name Korent with the launch of its line of cannabidiol (CBD) e-liquids. The announcement follows the brand's launch of CBD oils in December 2018.
"Korent's CBD products are expertly crafted and designed to help consumers effectively restore balance to their lives. Our new line of CBD e-liquids uses high-quality, verifiable ingredients," said Brian Moyer, Chief Executive Officer of Criticality.
The Korent e-liquids are featured in Mango Pineapple, Watermelon and Fresh Mint and come in two concentrations in each flavor – 600mg of CBD/60ml and 100mg of CBD/10ml. Additionally, a natural, unflavored booster is available for purchase in 100mg of CBD/10ml. These THC-free products feature flavors designed specifically to pair with, and enhance, Korent's CBD e-liquids, and are compatible with any open tank e-liquid module.
"Criticality provides unparalleled transparency into the production of our industrial hemp and hemp-derived products. The company's expertise in extraction and purification technologies enables us to produce superior hemp products that adhere to the highest quality standards," added Moyer.
Criticality currently partners with family farmers in three states to grow industrial hemp. The hemp is analyzed and validated for cannabinoid levels and potential contaminants by independent third-party laboratories during the growing and processing phases, as well as prior to the release of products. Criticality uses all-natural, environmentally-friendly methods to extract CBD from plant material without the use of harsh chemicals.
Korent CBD oil and e-liquid products are currently available for purchase online at www.korenthemp.com and at select retail locations. Criticality intends to continue to launch additional products from its innovation pipeline and expand retail distribution.
Criticality is an integrated North Carolina-based agricultural hemp company that takes a science-based approach to the extraction, refinement and formulation of high-quality, transparent industrial hemp derived products. Criticality partners with Pyxus International, Inc.
