Every year a few cannabis companies find their way onto Inc. magazine’s annual Inc. 5000 list of fastest-growing private companies. In 2018, Cura Wellness, the makers of the Select CBD brand, not only made that list, but placed at No. 45, making it the first cannabis company to ever break into the prestigious list’s top 50.
“This achievement would not be possible without the support of our customers, the hard work and dedication of our people, and a company-wide belief in a world where everything is possible,” founder and CEO Cameron Forni said in a press release. “The future is bright for this team and we’re excited to continue to grow with our mission to be the leading global provider of cannabis oil.”
The reason Cura was placed higher than the endless list of competition is simple: 5,961% growth over three years. It currently sells tinctures, vape cartridges, pet products, edibles, concentrates, capsules, topicals and patches, and also produces many of the white-labeled CBD products found on retail shelves across the country.
Product Details: A major component of that growth is the company’s Select CBD product line. Select CBD uses a blend of CBD isolate from industrial hemp, herbs and essential oils for its products.
Retail: Since placing on the Inc. 5000, the company has grown to employ more than 520 people — including former LaQuinta Inn executive Angelo Lombardi as its chief operating officer and former Apple executive Jason White as chief marketing officer — and its products can be found at grocery store chains such as New Season’s Market and across Europe, due to the company’s distribution agreement with Plata Wellness.
