Woman-Owned Premium Hemp Company to Launch Mushroom Capsules and USDA Certified Organic Pet Treats at NOCO Hemp Expo
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (March 18, 2021) ─ Advocates for Cannabis (A.F.C), a full-spectrum hemp-focused product company founded in 2016, announces it is introducing two familiar delivery systems to its already popular USDA Organic Hemp product line: Myco-Immunity Capsules and three varieties of hemp pet treats. The premium brand is debuting these new products at the well-known industry tradeshow, NoCo Hemp Expo in Denver, Colorado on March 26th-27th.
A.F.C creates a high-quality line of hemp products for humans and pets, derived from organically cultivated, non-GMO and pesticide-free hemp, grown on Colorado’s Western Slopes. The company prides itself on exceptional quality control from soil to oil, working collaboratively with industry-leading growers, scientists, and extractors to produce cGMP (Current Good Manufacturing Practices) compliant products derived from superior plant genetics. Today, in addition to promoting the incredible power of hemp, the company is also turning its attention to the ancient benefits of mushrooms.
A.F.C’s new Hemp + Myco-Immunity Capsules include 10 milligrams of full-spectrum, low solvent Kief Hemp and a blend of six Superfood Mushrooms. Combined, they produce a myco-powered immunity boost. Among other superfood mushrooms, these capsules leverage Reishi for allergy relief, Agarikon to reduce inflammation and open airways, and Turkey Tail to fight sickness and promote digestion. Interestingly, with this product, the natural benefits don’t stop at the capsules. Harnessing nature’s most beneficial plant-based nutrients in every way possible, A.F.C Hemp + Myco-Immunity Capsules come in a reusable container that’s protected by biodegradable mushroom packing material and hemp fiber. Consumers can purchase the full-sized bottle with 60 capsules, or a nine-capsule packet for trial or travel.
“We are redefining what it means to offer a premium product by curating something that’s not only about quality, but also takes our core values, advocacy, and sustainability into account,” said Anna Addison, CEO & Co-Founder of A.F.C. “Our uniquely tactile unboxing experience brings consumers closer to nature, so they can not only benefit from consuming these superfoods in a familiar capsule format, but they can also touch packaging grown from mushrooms, feel the hemp fiber, and then re-use the practical jar to minimize waste. This is all part of the idea of a ‘new’ luxury – a product that makes sustainability sexy.” Addison said.
Acknowledging that pets have endocannabinoid systems too, A.F.C is also introducing a tasty new line of supplements for pets. For cats, Crispy Chicken & Chamomile Hemp Treats with 0.5 milligrams of full-spectrum hemp extract to calm and promote sleep. Additionally, small dogs will enjoy A.F.C’s new Chicken & Hemp Seeds Hemp Treats with two milligrams of CBD, and bigger dogs can chew on Peanut Butter & Carob Hemp Treats with 3.5 milligrams of CBD. The Company also offers Hemp Extract for Cats and Hemp Extract for Dogs, products that are CO2-extracted in a certified cGMP facility, using one of the cleanest, safest standards of processing hemp concentrates.
A.F.C is part of a larger collaborative of science-focused cannabis and hemp experts who have worked to dispel myths and legitimize the scientific rigor of the legal cannabis industry for more than a decade. Called A.F.C Collective, the group is a global network consisting of Swiss cannabis and hemp producers as well as industry auditors, master growers, and formulation developers who have helped hemp operators cultivate organic plants and navigate unpredictable regulation since 2004.
