Cannabis advocate and Tribe Tokes founder Degelis Tufts talks the future of CBD at the CWCBExpo in New York City
The CWCBExpo in New York City continued this week among a backdrop of both hype and tension for the recently held FDA regulatory hearings on the future of CBD. The buzz on the showroom floor from exhibitors and attendees alike was one of nervous excitement — a community hopeful that the FDA would soon step in and bring some regulatory guidance to the wild west of the CBD industry, while at the same time apprehensive that the governmental body may overstep its bounds.
PotNetwork News spoke with one such company; an up-and-coming brand called TribeTokes that “creates and distributes merchandise with an elevated aesthetic for the next generation cannabis consumer.” Led by founder Degelis Tufts, it was one of the few women-led companies at the event, a sorely-needed constituent in the industry.
Tufts is an investor, entrepreneur, and cannabis legalization advocate who first began with TribeTats metallic tattoos. TribeTokes sleekly-branded selection of CBD Vape Cartridges, Pods, and other accessories put on full display an industry ready for the new millennium, one that understands consumer trends and how to target an audience.
“Hemp and cannabis brands of today and tomorrow are rapidly transforming from niche, local and underground to corporate, mass-consumer facing and maintaining a global reach,” Tufts told PotNetwork News in an exclusive interview. “The murky waters of federal regulations are not stopping the entrepreneurs that you’ll see at CWCBE from creating the best cannabis products for their consumers.”
