Kismet Consumer Product Group was founded in 2017 as a product representation group that represents portfolio companies in the cannabis category. The company will continue to procure and curate relationships with unique businesses that create product lines and private label products for sale in the mainstream retail channels.
The Non-THC category encompasses products that have no trace of cannabis, cannabidiol oil (CBD), THC, or hemp. These products are accessory products to the cannabis industry, and include, but are not limited to: appliances, soil and growing apparatuses, vaping devices, and pipes. There are no selling or shipping issues within this category.
Industrial hemp products are made from hemp, and compose all ends of the category including hard and soft lines, creams, oils, and elixirs and consumables. Because industrial hemp has been declared an unscheduled drug by the Department of Agriculture, there are no selling or shipping issues within this category.
Cannabidiol oil (CBD) is the newest and most exciting advancement in the cannabis category. CBD is applied to virtually every category composing consumables and topicals. The CBD oil that has been extracted to have less than .3% THC has also been unscheduled by the Department of Agriculture, and so there are no selling or shipping issues within this category.
Unlike the CBD products with less than .3% THC, CBD oil with greater concentrations has broad reach within the cannabis category. This is considered a scheduled drug, and has state-mandated restrictions that must be adhered. These products are required to be manufactured/licensed and transported within the state of origin and cannot cross state lines.
Like with CBD products of more than .3% THC, the THC-infused products range the gamut in the consumables category. THC-infused products are required to be manufactured/licensed and transported within the state of origin and cannot cross state lines.

“It’s ‘HIGH TIMES’ someone came up with a way for me to medicate with food other than sugar, sugar and more sugar. I have learned ways by reading this book how to get my medicine at breakfast, lunch and dinner in food I currently eat.”Rick M.
“Since the legalization of medical marijuana, my sleep and night sweat issues are no more. As a non-smoker, I was thrilled when introduced to the “Perrywinkles Edibles” brand edibles and cookbook at my collective. No more harsh coughing or dry, sore throat. Terrific taste, great selection.”Evelyn S
