Leafreport – Courtney Quinn: Hi. Courtney Quinn here with Leaf Report at the USA CBD Expo in Miami. I’m here with Kasie from SMPLSTC. How are you Kasie?
SMPLSTC CBD – Kasie: I’m doing great. How you doing Courtney?
Leafreport – Courtney Quinn: I’m great, thank you. Do you want to tell us a little bit about your company and its history?
SMPLSTC CBD – Kasie: Definitely, yeah. So SMPLSTC CBD was founded about six to seven months ago. When we ,launched we launched our single first product, which is our full spectrum tincture, three different flavors and 1500 milligram. That’s kinda how we started. And our newest product was just launched at the show, it’s our 250 milligram active CBD cartridge.
Leafreport – Courtney Quinn: Oh, awesome.
SMPLSTC CBD – Kasie: Yes.
Leafreport – Courtney Quinn: How do you ensure the products quality, purity and cleanliness?
SMPLSTC CBD – Kasie: Definitely. Well, it’s very important to us to have all those procedures. We actually go to a very good lab, reputable, and let them take quality assurance, things like that because there is a lot of things that can go wrong in this and we want to make sure we give our consumer the best quality product possible.
Leafreport – Courtney Quinn: Oh good, good. What is your… Can you tell us about the range of products and the highlights of each product family?
SMPLSTC CBD – Kasie: Definitely. Instead of doing a lot of products at once, we wanted to go ahead and do a couple at a time and definitely get the best product out there and put a time at each product. As of right now, we’re offering our tinctures and then we also just released the cartridges like we spoke about at the show.
Leafreport – Courtney Quinn: Very nice. What are your recommendations for the beginner user? Someone who has heard about CBD and is wondering where to start, is worried about legalities, efficacy or safety issues?
SMPLSTC CBD – Kasie: The most important thing is to get educated, go into shops, look online, talk to people that know about these things and see what product works best for you. There is a full range of products available Everybody needs something different and everything works differently. It’s definitely important to educate yourself and go out there and see what’s really going to work for what you want.
Leafreport – Courtney Quinn: Definitely. Do you have any thoughts you can share about the current legal status of CBD?
SMPLSTC CBD – Kasie: It’s kind of all up in the air at this point. I mean and to be honest with you in California, it’s kind of tinctures, cartridges, they’re all okay. It’s gonna be different and we see some changes coming, but I think that most people, if you stay on top of it, we can go with this and see what we need to do here. Yeah.
Leafreport – Courtney Quinn: Great. What do you think a user should look for in a product?
SMPLSTC CBD – Kasie: Honestly, it’s very important that the user knows exactly what they’re taking. And most importantly, that they’re getting the right and correct product and an honest product and they’re getting what they pay for. That is the most important thing I think for the consumers because we want them to enjoy these products, not feel like they didn’t get what they paid for.
Leafreport – Courtney Quinn: Of course. Do you use CBD yourself? And if so, which products?
SMPLSTC CBD – Kasie: Definitely. Well, I’ve been on my tinctures obviously the last six months. My new favorite thing is these cartridges because it’s more of an instant relief, vape on it a few times and you get what you need out of it… if you need relaxation and what you need from it.
Leafreport – Courtney Quinn: Good. That’s great. How do you see the future of the CBD industry?
SMPLSTC CBD – Kasie: think it has so much potential and so much bigger than any of us believed it was going to be a couple of years ago when people started this. I mean, I have no idea where this is going to end up. I just see the amount of foot traffic and most importantly, the consumers wanted to educate themselves with this show. That is the most important part because the consumers need this for us to be here. Yeah.
Leafreport – Courtney Quinn: Well, it’s been great talking with you, Kasie. Thank you.
SMPLSTC CBD -Kasie: No. Thank you so much. We appreciate it.
Leafreport – Kourtney Quinn: Thank you so much.
