Elixinol executive joins US Hemp Authority board

An executive from international CBD brand Elixinol has been appointed to the board of directors at the U.S. Hemp Authority — one of the industry’s self-regulatory bodies.

“From the start, Elixinol has gone above and beyond when it comes to product efficacy and transparency,” Elixinol CEO for the Americas Tom Siciliano said about his appointment.

“Our involvement with the Authority further solidifies our commitment to quality and higher standards.”

Siciliano recently served as president of Nutritional High International Inc., a marijuana manufacturing and distribution company, and as president and CFO for Canna Security America.

Prior to his work in the cannabis industry, Siciliano worked at startup companies, private equity firms and public Fortune 500 companies.

Siciliano’s appointment is part of the Hemp Authority’s advocacy partnership with the U.S. Hemp Roundtable, where Siciliano is also a board member.

Elixinol Global trades on the Australian Stock Exchange under the ticker symbol EXL and on U.S. over-the counter-markets as ELLXF.
