Success! We were so happy to be one of the almost 100 exhibitors and among nearly 4000 attendees on the floor this month at CBD Expo East in Orlando, Florida. From discussing the industry with fellow businesses to meeting a slew of our loyal customers, our trip across the nation was extremely productive.
We were thrilled to see an excitement surrounding hemp and cannabinoid-based products on the East Coast, much like we have known in the Pacific Northwest for a while now. It was an absolute pleasure to hear from you, our loyal customers, in approval of our goals as a business. The rave reviews we received from you at CBD Expo East are what sustain us in our mission to bring affordable and high-quality CBD products to a burgeoning marketplace.
For those of you who asked questions, thank you for your inquiries. We received a lot of questions specifically about how we can ensure the quality of our products, which extraction methods we use and why.
Here at Lazarus Naturals, we are excited to finally be vertically integrated into the CBD products industry. Since we have control of many variables including plant cultivation, processing, packaging, and direct-to-consumer order fulfillment, we are able to ensure top-notch quality of our products and customer service. So far, our procedures and operations have rendered consistency. We are delighted our customers take notice and hope to always deliver a product of the utmost quality.
Regarding our extraction method and why we choose an ethanol-based process, it comes down to the fact that we began operations with an ethanol process and have fine-tuned it to be the most efficient and sustainable method for our mission. Some of the distinct advantages we believe are inherent with our ethanol process include being able to efficiently reclaim more solvent and retain the terpene and cannabinoid profile we would like to have in our product line. Each extraction method comes with its caveats, but we have concluded that an ethanol process is our preferred method for delivering the rich taste and aroma our customers have come to enjoy our products.
A huge thank you to the CBD Expo team and for the warm hospitality of Hilton Orlando. Also, shout out to the tireless efforts of Global Experience Specialists, Inc! We were delighted to be a part of CBD Expo East and look forward to the possibility of seeing more of you at future events.
