CBD manufacturer Global Widget is expanding its operation beyond its three brands. The Tampa, Fla.-based company has launched GWCBD, a division that will focus exclusively on white-label and raw ingredients. 

"This is a value-add solution that distributors and retailers have been asking for," said Chad Levitt, Global Widget’s vice president of white label and bulk ingredients for GWCBD. "We're taking our companywide commitment to compliance, Good Manufacturing Practices, and science-based R&D development — along with everything we have learned from creating our own successful products — and are providing that expertise to white label customers."

Levitt is no stranger to the CBD space, having previously served as chief commercial officer at Mile High Labs. He now leads a team of five experienced CBD white label sales specialists. 

Global Widget co-founder Kevin Collins said that the new division has been something the company has been building toward for several years. 

"Over the last two years, we have built a huge foundation," Collins said. "We now have a 50,000-sq.-ft. facility for manufacturing with in-house lab testing capabilities. We have a 15,000-sq.-ft. facility for extraction, and another 50,000- sq.-ft. facility for distribution. We're looking to be the premier supplier and one-stop-shop for everything CBD."
