DELRAY BEACH, Fla., Aug. 14, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Exactus Inc. (OTCQB: EXDI) (the “Company”), a healthcare company pursuing opportunities in hemp derived cannabidiol (CBD) products, today reported financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2019.
Emiliano Aloi, President of Exactus stated, “Since entering this rapidly growing market, we have procured quality supply, established top of the line manufacturing operations and secured various distribution channels in which to sell our products.”
Mr. Aloi continued, “Our business model is differentiated from most competitors in the CBD market in that we have full traceability from our seed through our own product supply chain ensuring that our customers get a quality product with full knowledge about where their product came from. In an emerging growth market, we place a great importance in maintaining the highest standards.”
Since the beginning of 2019, Exactus has rapidly developed a platform for growth through a number of initiatives. The Company entered into a development and supply agreement with Ceed2Med, a hemp and hemp-derivative supply sourcing, production, distribution, and development company. That was followed by the acquisition of majority interest in two 100 acres hemp farms in Oregon, with hemp grown from superior CBD genetics and an operating history of successful harvests.
In the current quarter the Company acquired Florida-based Green Goddess Extracts, a contact manufacturer and formulator of hemp and vape products. Green Goddess manufactures and distributes a premium line of high-quality hemp products sold through distributors and online. The acquisition brings a line of CBD products and distribution, which Exactus can leverage with its upcoming harvest.
Additionally, the Company appointed Kenneth E. Puzder Chief Financial Officer in July.
Second-Quarter 2019 Financial Summary
Financial results for the three months ended June 30, 2019 represent the very early stages of a significant opportunity. Revenue for the second quarter was $139,683, up from $15,980 in the prior quarter as we began to ship product to customers. Please refer to our complete 10-Q filed with the SEC.

Exactus Inc. is a company advocated to reintegrating the hemp supply chain into the world’s mainstream commercial markets, including the farming, development and distribution of hemp-derived Cannabidiol products, which is more commonly referred to as CBD, and is one of the non-psychoactive Cannabinoids found in the plant. Industrial hemp is a type of Cannabis plant containing less than 0.3% THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), which is the psychoactive component of the Cannabis plant. Industrial hemp is cultivated for the plant’s seed, fiber, and extracts. After 40 years of prohibition, the Agricultural Improvement Act of 2018, known as the 2018 Farm Bill, legalized hemp on the federal level as an agricultural crop. Hemp production will be regulated by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the states. As a result, Hemp has generally been removed from the Controlled Substances Act (CSA) and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA). A potential risk of growing hemp in the United States is that the entire crop must be destroyed if it tests at a THC percentage greater than 0.3%.
