DALLAS, Nov. 28, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- In a new major development, Rocky Mountain High Brands (RMHB) has been granted permission to be the sole provider of high-quality drinks containing cannabidiol (CBD) to be sold throughout Mexico by RCH Grupo’s subsidiary, CBD Life. It is the first time an American company has manufactured a hemp product in the form of beverages for sale in Mexico.

RMHB’s line of drinks include Rocket High, an energy drink infused with CBD, and CBD-infused California Lemonade and California Black Tea. All beverages were developed by Rocky Mountain High Brands for RCH Grupo’s subsidiary, CBD Life. RMHB’s six new beverages contain a low level of cannabidiol, otherwise known as CBD.

The Company also released its most recent podcast, recorded on November 27, 2018. Mr. Alejandro Montano, Director of International Business for CBD Life, joined RMHB President and CEO Michael Welch and Director of Operations Christian Vega to address the issuance of the permits and their effect on the Company.  In the podcast, Mr. Montano also cleared up the confusion concerning the RMHB’s contract executed with RCH Grupo’s subsidiary, CBD Alimentos, and the recent permits issued to RCH Grupo’s subsidiary, CBD Life.  To view the podcast, please click on the following link:

Mr. Janko Ruiz de Chávez, Chief Operations Officer of CBD Life, stated, “Rocket High, California Lemonade and California Black Tea will be available in supermarkets and other businesses throughout Mexico early in the first quarter of 2019.”

Michael Welch, President and Chief Executive Officer of Rocky Mountain High Brands, stated, “We are very proud of the efforts our Team Mexico made in the development of the Rocket High and the California beverages.  We believe that the beverages have great potential in Mexico and other countries.”

The Mexican government recently approved the importation and sale of CBD products in retail establishments across Mexico. CBD Life was granted 21 distribution licenses, which include the licenses for the drinks produced exclusively by Rocky Mountain High Brands.

Mr. Ruiz de Chávez continued, “CBD Life chose Rocky Mountain High Brands because we felt that working with their strong leadership team, especially their Project Team Leader Christian Vega, was a good fit for us.  Mr. Vega understands both cultures, how business is conducted in both countries, and is the driving force behind the success of this project.  We knew that Rocky Mountain High Brands and Mr. Vega would follow high standards and would not cut corners. They will produce a high-quality product at a reasonable price for our company.”

“This was a very selective process,” said Christian Vega, Rocky Mountain High’s Director of Operations. “No other company has done this before. We went the distance amid challenges over the course of a year, and are very proud of the beverages we created.”
