Dallas, Texas, May 26, 2020) – GL Brands, Inc. (OTCQB: GRLB) (“GL Brands”) (www.glbrands.com) a global house of brands with focus on CBD and hemp consumer packaged goods based in Dallas, TX, is pleased to announce that it has spearheaded the launch of a partnership between Rocky Mountain High Brands, Inc. (OTCQB: RMHB) and CBD Life ® beverages, concurrently winning a supply deal on GL Brands’ water soluble CBD as the flagship ingredient of the beverages to be distributed. GL Brands’ top shelf water-soluble CBD utilizes nanotechnology to break down the CBD molecules to micro-sized particles that can be emulsified naturally and remain stable in water or, in this case, beverages.
Since 2016, CBD Life has been a pioneer in production, brand building, marketing and distribution of cannabis-derived products focused on personal care and well-being in Mexico. Today, they are the first Mexican company to market CBD products, and its brands and unmatched product portfolio have quickly become top-of-mind among the Hispanic community. CBD Life is the only company in the country with a license to sell CBD-infused beverages.
The demand for CBD based beverages is increasing rapidly worldwide, and as Mexico opens up the Cannabis industry gradually, various leading manufacturers in more mature Cannabis markets like GL Brands and Rocky Mountain High Brands in the US have partnered with local players in Mexico like CBD Life to attend to the growing demand.
The Mexico hemp CBD market size is projected to reach USD 275.8 million by 2025, expanding at a revenue-based CAGR of 34.3%, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc.
“We are happy to have pre-empted a once in a lifetime opportunity to create, expand and position our brands globally in such a fast-growing industry. Our partnership with GL Brands and RMHB has allowed us to gain speed to market, creating superior quality CBD-infused products that our clients are loving,” said Alejandro Montaño, International Business Development Director & Co-founder of CBD Life.
GL Brands has also received 17 million shares of RMHB in addition to RMHB’s agreement to utilize GRLB’s top-shelf water soluble CBD as the flagship ingredient in the drinks that RMHB is manufacturing for CBD Life. The shares were delivered under an agreement between Rocky Mountain High Brands and Texas Wellness Centers, LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of GL Brands relating to the initial tranche of beverage production. GL Brands’ CEO Carlos Frias stated, “GL Brands and Rocky Mountain High have been working together to manufacture an impactful product line for CBD Life’s brands, which were recently launched and are currently being sold through their online and retail channels in Mexico.”
CBD Life officially launched Rocket High, California Limonada (California Lemonade), and California Sabor Te Negro (California Black Tea) in Mexico on April 20, 2020 (4/20).

“We are thrilled with the opportunity to bring water-soluble CBD to Mexico with Rocky Mountain High Brands through CBD Life,” stated Mr. Frias. “This has generated an immediate revenue stream we anticipate will grow exponentially over the next year.
“We are the first U.S. company to manufacture and export commercial CBD to Mexico, and the relationship with Rocky Mountain High and CBD Life should expand the overall opportunities and potential for our companies, with increases in shareholder value and long-term growth.”
“Finally, we’d like to provide our shareholders an update regarding the timing of our SEC filings. While the filing of our transition report for the period ending December 31, 2019, and our quarterly report for the quarter ending March 31, 2020, were delayed due to the pandemic, we are diligently working on them and making better progress now that staffing issues are being resolved as a result of the lessening pandemic lockdown measures. We received letters from our auditor regarding their staffing issues as a result of the pandemic, and the additional time they needed to complete their review and audit procedures relating to our filings. We have filed 8-K’s regarding the pandemic delays with the SEC, and the extension of time needed to file our reports, and we anticipate filing the reports in the middle of June.”
