SponsorsOne to launch Organic Hemp Cigarette Brand
Hemp Cigarettes - the healthier alternative to Tobacco and Vaping
WATERLOO, ON / ACCESSWIRE / September 14, 2020 / SponsorsOne Inc., (CSE:SPO)(OTC PINK:SPONF)(FRA:5SO), a company that utilizes its proprietary platform that combines digital marketing, wholesale and retail distribution, branding, and operational & funding capital, giving it a competitive first-mover advantage in rapidly building, launching and selling proprietary brands focused in the craft Alcohol, Functional Beverage and Hemp Sectors, announces today it is preparing to launch a direct to consumer line up of organic Hemp pre-rolled cigarettes.
“Our plan is to bring a healthier product alternative to addictive tobacco and vaping” states Myles Bartholomew, CEO of SponsorsOne. “We believe the health benefits provided from smokable organic hemp flower as the delivery system for C*B*D ("CB") and C*B*G ("C*B") will be a game changer.”
SponsorsOne is in discussion with a number of producers and co-packers to produce an organic hemp pre-rolled cigarettes with the goal of delivering up to 15mg of CB or C*B per cigarette. It is known that the bioavailability through the lungs is very fast versus ingesting or topical absorption, making the delivery of CB and C*B highly effective. The known health benefits of CB and C*B are in their infancy stages and are being documented daily as new discoveries occur. Using the internal Brand building capability at SponsorsOne, we will create a new brand and strategy, produce the creative marketing content, and launch directly to consumer and wholesale distribution. SponsorsOne expects to have this new Brand launched in 2021.

When I read this article, alarm bells started going off. Here's why...
Smokable Hemp Market Set To Erupt - Key Details
Hemp operators say smokable hemp is one of the fastest-growing and most lucrative segments in the nascent hemp and CB industry – and market analysts agree, with expectations that the market will experience five-fold growth in the next five years.
For 2020, market researchers at Nielsen project sales in the current smokable-hemp market to reach $70mn to $80Mn. That includes categories such as loose CB flower, hemp-CB pre-rolls, cigars and other inhalables.
Breaking that into categories, the markets for smokable-hemp CB flower and smokable-hemp-CB pre-rolls, which include hemp cigarettes and cigars, are valued at approximately $35Mn to $40Mn each.
Comparatively, total sales of all hemp-derived CB consumer products in the U.S. were around $1.2Bn for 2019.
Nielsen projects that total sales of hemp-derived CB consumer products in the U.S. for 2020 will be $1.7Bn to $2Bn. The average of that range, $1.85Bn, would represent a 54% growth from 2019 to 2020.
By 2025, Nielsen expects the smokable-hemp market to reach $300Mn to $400Mn, representing roughly 5% of the potential $6Bn to $7Bn hemp-derived CB consumer products category.
In other words, SPONF may be making its move while this industry is still in its infancy and exhibiting a really high ceiling.
