Phoenix Blend was announced as a winner in the topical category! New York, November 18, 2019 – LeafLink today released its second-annual LeafLink List, honoring the standout cannabis brands, products, and retailers on its b2b e-commerce marketplace, which processes over $1.4B per year in wholesale cannabis orders. Medicine Fram Botanicals, Phoenix Blend, was announced as a winner in the Topical category.
Since our founding, we have prided ourselves in infusing full-spectrum cannabis and hemp into our products. Our process incorporates and preserves the cannabinoids and terpenes found in the cannabis and hemp we use. It’s why our products are simply better than the rest. The reason for “Botanicals” in “Medicine Farm Botanicals” is due to our firm belief in the medicinal properties of the herbs, spices, and oils we incorporate into all our products. The unison between our ingredients and the synergy between the full-spectrum cannabis and hemp we blend is what puts the Botanicals in Medicine Farm. Our products NEVER contain parabens, mineral oil, or artificial preservatives. We only believe in ingredients found naturally occurring in the great outdoors.
LeafLink, which is live in 25 territories across North America, created LeafLink List by analyzing the orders between 1,300+ cannabis brands and 4,000+ retailers from January 1st, 2019 to September 30th, 2019. The Best-Seller categories represent the most popular brands and products on the platform in 2019, while the Fastest-Growing categories honor rising stars with rapid growth this year. The Best Branding & Advertising, Diversity in Leadership, and Industry Innovators winners were selected by an internal nomination and voting process. LeafLink Customer Favorites are brands with superior order fulfillment and retailer service on LeafLink’s platform.
The List expanded to include retailers for the first time. In addition to the Top Buyer and Fastest Growing categories, which honors retailers with the highest or most rapidly increasing purchase volume, three new data-driven categories were introduced. Market Influencers are retailers whose purchasing patterns showed they were able to predict popular products. Taste Testers were retailers who historically have been the first to try new products, and Best Purchase Variety highlighted retailers who purchased the greatest variety of unique products available to them compared to total products purchased in the state.
“We’re excited to continue the tradition of recognizing some of the incredible brands and retailers who are part of the LeafLink community,” said Ryan G. Smith, LeafLink CEO & Co-Founder. “LeafLink List is not only a celebration of amazing cannabis businesses, but also of the ways in which they are helping to push the industry forward as a whole.”
ABOUT MEDICINE FARM BOTANICALS
Medicine Fram Botanicals have a small team based in Eugene, Oregon; so small in fact that I can count all of us on my right hand. And the thing we all have in common is that we are transplants to Oregon. None of us are born here, and yet here we have all found our homes here. It’s important to us that the money you spend on our products supports our local economy. So, our ingredients come from local businesses such as Mountain Rose Herbs and GloryBee.
