SourceDirect at ASD is the go-to destination for buyers looking to source new product categories and find new ways to directly profit from manufacturers coming from top sourcing countries.
The Company and AATAC are primarily promoting the Fast CBD Relief™ brand, which Isodiol recently acquired with the CBD Naturals® brands portfolio and also launched as its flagship cannabinoid (CBD) products in the C-Store program partnership with AATAC.
Currently, Fast CBD Relief™ is available in the following forms:
- ‘The Patch’: The patch delivers fast and targeted pain relief and can be cut to size and applied to the area needed, delivering relief up to 12 hours;
- ‘The Cream’: Ideal for smaller areas of discomfort, this cooling cream supplies instant relief and can be applied to fingers, knees, ankles, neck, and any other areas of discomfort;
- ‘The Shot’: A concentrated beverage in four varieties that taste great and target specific issues, including RESCUE (relieves tension), SLEEP (promotes rest), IMMUNE (boosts immunity), and FOCUS (enhances concentration); and
- ‘The Roll-On’: Promoting a sense of calm and relaxation, this topical serum is fast and effective.
