Colorado-based U.S. Hemp Brokerage (USHB) has unveiled John Budd, a new organic full-spectrum CBD product line capturing the rugged individualism of the American working man. John Budd is named after its founder, 61-year-old Colorado rancher John Budd, whose family has a legacy of ranching, farming and mining in Colorado for the past 100 years.
Initial product offerings include a high-performance 600mg tincture (cinnamon and natural flavors), coconut oil soft gels with 10mg and 20mg of CBD, a 20mg cinnamon gum 3-pack, and water-soluble powder products.
CBD topicals include Hot Damn Muscle Balm, a warming salve with cayenne pepper as the warming agent, and Cut the Crud, a balm with menthol/camphor for support with upper respiratory conditions.
John Budd also plans to launch clothing and home products around his family’s ethos of working hard and living well. John Budd will also introduce a women’s product line, called Jane Budd, which will include flavors and textures specifically designed for a woman’s palette and body chemistry, which will roll out in late summer 2021.
“John had a vision to create a CBD line rooted in cutting-edge botany and agriculture, but he also wanted to offer a product that will resonate with hard-working men and women and how they live their lives,” said U.S. Hemp Brokerage founder and Managing Director Jeff Cole. “John Budd products are priced for working folks who don’t want to spend $200 for their CBD.”
U.S. Hemp Brokerage has an exclusive contract to market the John Budd products, which are being placed in 1,000 U.S. convenience stores and dozens of natural grocery and specialty stores.
“As a rancher and working man, John knows the value of putting something pure and real into his body,” said Cole. “Whether it is sore hands and an achy back, or simply wanting to sleep better and have more focus during the day, John Budd and Jane Budd CBD products are designed for people who work hard and play hard.”
John Budd will be formally introduced at the AsheJam three-day music festival in Asheville, N.C., on the weekend of June 25-27, which is affiliated with the Southern Atlantic Hemp & Arts Expo. The brand will also be in attendance at the Southern Hemp Expo also in Asheville at the close of summer over Labor Day weekend.
“We are continuing our family tradition of serving working people by respecting their time, money, health and well-being, and we designed these products for them,” said John Budd.
