Good Hemp, Inc., maker of hemp-infused beverages, has hired Scott Shellady as chief strategy officer.
Shellady is a frequent contributor on Fox News, CNBC, BBC, CNN and SKY. He has a strong range of technical and trade experience that spans 30 years in the cash, futures, equities and commodities markets throughout North America, Europe and Asia.
"I've known Scott for what seems like a lifetime,” said Good Hemp CEO Bill Alessi. “He is a second-generation family farm owner, a long-time trader at the Chicago Mercantile Exchange, very well respected in the global financial community and has held the position of COO of a publicly traded company with a $400 million market cap. There is no doubt in my mind that Scott fits seamlessly into the role of chief strategy officer of Good Hemp or his ability to expand our reach on a global level.”
Good Hemp 2oh! is a line of naturally-flavored waters infused with 10mg of THC-free hemp extract and prebiotic fiber. They’re available in six flavors: Strawberry Kiwi, Blueberry, Coconut Lime, Cucumbermint, Lemon Twist and Mango.
Good Hemp Fizz and Canna Hemp are functional carbonated beverages infused with natural flavors, organic caffeine, prebiotic fiber and hemp seed oil. Hemp Fizz and Canna Hemp are made with hemp seed oil which is categorized as "generally recognized as safe" under the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act.
"The passing of the Farm Bill in 2018 has led to a surge of consumer interest in hemp-based products,” Shellady said. “This consumer demand still exists and has continued to grow despite the troubles the B-to-B side of the industry has experienced. Similar to a well thought-out trading plan, I believe the team at Good Hemp has positioned the company to take advantage of that consumer demand as the industry finds its foothold and regulation becomes more defined. I'm looking forward to being a part of that strategy and the success to follow."
