“We are happy to see more and more individuals understanding the benefits of cannabis and investment funds looking at companies like ours as a potential game-changer in the health and wellness space,” Hemp Horizons CEO Rohit Shah said.

Funding will help the startup launch and market cannabis extracts and  hemp-seed products.

“Today increasing demand for hemp seeds over traditional herbal seeds is driving the growth of the market.
