Medterra became on of 13 companies identified by the US Hemp Authority as industry leaders, earning a Seal Certification. This certification recognizes companies who use best practices and uphold quality and safety standards. The US Hemp Authority was originally formed to provide guidelines for growers and processors of industrial hemp but has since proved their commitment to identifying safe and accurately labeled CBD and other hemp-derived products.

CBD took Natural Products Expo West by storm this year. With countless other brands exhibiting, we had to find a way to stand out from the rest. Passionate about the benefits of our products, we were very excited to showcase our functional wellness line and tease other innovative products we have in the pipeline such as gummies and wellness shots. In addition to our booth in the Hot Products Pavilion, we also had a product showcase in the Hot Products section of North Hall. Shows such as this reminds us how thankful we are to be a part of an industry full of like-minded natural and organic brands.

Patrons were able to come in, sample our CBD, products, watch live music, enjoy a CBD cocktail, socialize and even get their zen on at a yoga class lead by celebrity yoga instructor Shayla Quinn.
