We’re excited to announce the launch of VYBES, an organic beverage made with Hemp CBD, throughout Central Florida. The announcement comes just days after Governor Ron DeSantis signed legislation to legalize hemp farming and sales from licensed individuals in Florida.

“The legalization of hemp products in Florida allows us to give consumers what they’ve been asking for—a beverage made with CBD,” said Chris Larue, president and founder of Sunshine State Distributing. “We are excited to introduce VYBES in Central Florida. If you’re unsure of beverages made with CBD, this product will change your mind.”

VYBES touts the ability to help consumers’ bodies naturally achieve homeostasis by regulating anxiety, stress and sleep. The beverage comes in five flavors: honey crisp apple basil, burning mandarin, strawberry lavender, peach ginger and blueberry mint. Each bottle is made with organic ingredients and contains 25mg of organic Hemp CBD. 

CBD is derived from the hemp plant but does not contain THC, the psychoactive ingredient found in marijuana. Instead, it is a naturally occurring compound that has been shown to reduce pain, inflammation, stress and anxiety. 

Florida’s recently signed hemp bill sets guidelines around an already expanding industry. Hemp sales have been legal at the federal level since President Donald Trump signed the farm bill in December 2018, but the state has only recently put forth regulations for the safe sale of hemp products. While some retailers already carry CBD products, the signed bill opens the door for regulations around the cultivation of the plant and stricter rules for selling products that contain CBD. The Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (FDACS) is in the process of drafting a framework for the industry, which could include requirements on product labels, ingredients and farming standards.

VYBES, has taken a proactive approach, exceeding any current and expected requirements for the sale of their products and is completely legal in Florida.
