Energy drinks are a multi-billion dollar industry while at the same time one of the most criticized. Energy drinks are thought of as poison by many with politicians and healthcare professionals alike trying to eliminate the industry. Bills have been passed in the EU and the US to ban sales to minors. I’m not sure why. The only thing that ought to scare is the sugar content. That doesn’t change the fact there are growing health concerns, warranted or not. And as long as energy drinks are seen negatively, the industry can only hurt itself by not progressing.
Although the crop has been cultivated for over 10,000 years, the US government decided to outlaw its cultivation. Thankfully, both federal and state governments have been easing those restrictions. Rocky Mountain High Brands Inc (OTC: RMHB) has turned that corner and has created a less adverse affecting energy drink. The neatest thing about the drinks is the fact they are infused with hemp. And as you may or may not know, hemp is rich in healthy fats and essential fatty acids. They are also a great protein source and contain high amounts of vitamin E, phosphorus, potassium, sodium, magnesium, sulfur, calcium, iron and zinc. It’s a powerfully healthy food.
With the power food hemp, its products have ingredients everyone can read and understand right away: carbonated water, beet sugar, citric acid, guarana extract, caffeine, ginseng extract, and natural flavor. Most importantly, it doesn’t contain high fructose corn syrup.
What’s exciting about the hemp space is the room for growth. It’s a mature market in places like Canada, but with America’s agriculture, there’s no doubt the US market will continue to grow over the years. To that, edible cannabis had $1.6 billion is sales, and it’s expected to grow. Hemp based products are expected to top $10 billion by 2019. As cannabis continues to legalize, hemp is a wonder plant with never ever benefits, and it will continue to integrate in consumer products like RMHB.
