Power will target its efforts initially on more than 1,350 retail locations across the highly influential Los Angeles, San Diego and Las Vegas urban centers. The addition of Aceso Hemp to the Power portfolio compliments their existing natural and organic product lines from "better-for-you" and on-trend brands.

"Power is an ideal partner to help get our products on shelves in the trend-setting Southern California and Las Vegas markets," said Hilal Tabsh, Vice President of Marketing and Distribution at Aceso Hemp. "They have built their business around meeting the growing consumer demand for natural products that promote improved health, and these attributes are at the core of the Aceso Hemp brand."

"We are excited to partner with a progressive company like Aceso Hemp and take their products to our customers in the retail channel," said Craig Powers, Vice President of Power Distribution. "Their heritage, reputation, regulatory compliance expertise and extensive portfolio demonstrate a real vision for building a true leadership position in the hemp category."

Aceso Hemp has paired plant science with food science to develop highly targeted broad-spectrum hemp-infused formulations for people looking for natural alternatives in their wellness regimens. Its powders, sprays and tablets are each sold in three varieties called Calm, Soothe and Wellness.

Since the start of 2019, Aceso Hemp has reached agreements with regional distributors in California, Alaska and Vermont, as well as one national distributor.
