CV Sciences reports falling revenues, sales amid ‘flood’ of new competitors

CV Sciences, a San Diego-based CBD manufacturer, reported revenue of $12.6 million for the third quarter ended Sept. 30, down more than 7% from the same period a year ago.

Profit for the quarter was $8.4 million, down 15% from the previous year.

The results fell well short of analyst expectations even as CV Sciences piled up new retail outlets last quarter for its CBD products.

The company’s topical balms and roll-ons are now available in more than 5,400 retail locations throughout the United States, including CVS Pharmacy and Kroger Co.

CV Sciences CEO Joseph Dowling blamed the results on the CBD industry being “flooded” with new products, driving down sales and profits.

Dowling also attributed the slipping results to “the uncertain regulatory environment for CBD resulting in state-by-state ambiguities that are impacting retailer activities.”

CV Sciences trades on the over-the-counter markets under the ticker symbol CVSI.
