Green Roads featured on CBS News Sunday Morning

As the hemp oil industry continues to expand, leading manufacturers of hemp-derived products like Green Roads are beginning to gain notoriety nationwide. Recently, the company was featured on CBS News Sunday Morning, one of the most watched weekend news programs in the country.

For their recent segment on the growing hemp oil industry, correspondent Lee Cowan and the show’s crew visited Green Roads in Florida, where they spoke to co-founder and leading pharmacist Laura Fuentes.

“On the cutting edge of something big”

“I started making products way back, and we gave them to friends and family. And, it started working. And I was like, What? What’s happening here? Like, it’s working,” explained Laura during her interview with Cowan.

Green Roads products are sold in over 10,000 locations.

Laura founded Green Roads in 2012 alongside Arby Barroso. She is a licensed compound pharmacist recognized as one of the industry’s most trusted medical experts. The CBS segment describes Laura’s role in the industry as “threading the needle between the scientific and anecdotal evidence.”

“I have a really strong faith in it,” Fuentes replied when asked about the health benefits of hemp products. “There is great potential.”

Cowan recognizes Green Roads as one of the largest makers of hemp-derived products in the country, highlighting the company’s 10% share of the hemp oil market. He also notes the young and vibrant energy which was palpable during his visit. “Its sales force is made up of mostly 20-somethings who feel like they’re on the cutting edge of something big,” he said.

A $22 billion industry

Cowan also sat down with Bethany Gomez who is the managing director at Brightfield Group, a market research company that has been studying the industry in recent years.

“I have never seen an industry grow this quickly, and I’ve never seen an industry with so much headwind,” said Gomez. “Over the past year, it’s grown by more than 200%. And that was with the market being federally illegal until December 20, when the Farm Bill passed.”

Brightfield estimates that products made with hemp extracts will evolve into a $22 billion a year market within the next five years.

Big names joining the party

Even if those numbers seem too good to be true, the reality is that hemp is set to experience exponential levels of growth in the near future. Earlier this year, CVS and Walgreens announced plans to include hemp derived products in their stores. Meanwhile, companies like Coca-Cola and Oreo are exploring the possibility of adding hemp oil products to their lineups.

With so much untapped potential, the rise of hemp products is inevitable. The question is, how long will you take to join this party?

  1. I discovered Green Roads on Anna Maria Island last year. I tried a gummy and noticed I felt an overall relaxation of my body. I have fibromyalgia and I now buy the oil and it helps me a lot. First product to ever help with my discomfort and body aches. Thank you!

  2. I learned about CBD oil used for pain, a year ago. Since then, I have used it for fibromyalgia, spinal stenosis and arthritis. I stopped pharmaceutical prescriptions for Vicodin and other pain meds. However, getting a prescription for medical marijuana has been nearly impossible and the cost , if approved, is beyond teach for a person on Medicare!

  3. Into my 6th year of a serious pancreatic surgery plus partial removal of several attached intestines, a very rare surgery with apx. 2% survival rate I( I’m 81 ) with no previous knowledge. Surgery more than 8 hours, ICU and hospital one month, a few smaller surgeries , living on liquid diet then partially soft, ( thanking my son for continuing his fresh fishing, helping to keep me alive ), and my home made chicken soup. Last month my surgeon informed me I broke the survival record !!!!! Pain and continuous nausea at times frustrates me , but I am alive to continue to watch my family grow. Back to beginning, A Miracle from God sending Dr.’s I didn’t even know, people I know some I didn’t spending hours at the hospital praying for my life to continue, and of course my wonderful family praying even my grand children. So, the reason I have gone into such detail is to let you know to never give up. God is Great and will keep His Loving Arms around you as He is still doing for me because He has just led me to Green Roads/ Terpenes a few months ago and it is helping my stomach so much from the nausea and the other pains it is hard to believe, doesn’t take it all away, but I can eat much better and keep praying it will continue even more !!!! So, thank you all who kept fighting and never gave up to bring relief to those of us who need it and soon the government will realize the benefit and help pay for the relief it brings without taking so many years to just making the greed stay with the greed !!!!! Do be careful tho, start at the100 mg, be sure to take every day at the .25 line, and increase gradually if needed. Thank you for your time and pray it will help you.
