Two CBD brands were among the winners of the annual Product of the Year Awards. CbdMD won in two categories —CBD Ingestible and CBD Pet, while Medterra’s Pain Cream + CBD was the CBD Personal Care category winner. The winning products from cbdMD were its CBD Gummies and its Paw CBD 300 mg Peanut-Butter Hard Chews. 

“When it comes to determining the ‘best of the best’, we believe Product of the Year and its iconic red seal is the gold standard for brands nationwide,” said Marty Sumichrast, co-CEO of cbdMD. “In a heavily saturated market, we are humbled to be recognized as a leader within the CBD industry and to see our products again be awarded this top distinction. This year is especially exciting, as both our cbdMD and Paw CBD brands were awarded top honors.”

The CBD categories were just three of the 41 categories in this year’s Product of the Year Awards. Chosen by 40,000 American shoppers in a national survey conducted by Kantar, each of the winning products has been awarded for being the most innovative product in the category. 

“For all the obvious reasons, shoppers are spending less time in the supermarket than ever, but still crave new and innovative products to light up these difficult times. Because of this, we are more excited than ever to announce the 2021 Product of the Year winners and help shoppers find that ‘great new product’ when it matters most, however they do their shopping this year," said Mike Nolan, global CEO of Product of the Year Management. “What makes Product of the Year so trusted is our unique process, which gives shoppers the confidence that each product with our iconic red logo is backed by 40,000 Americans. That’s a powerful advantage for our 2021 winners, as a Product of the Year Award positions them as THE innovative leader in their category.”
