The Industry Authority on Forbes Top 10 CBD Company List
Ramps Up for National Education/Product Tour
Fort Lauderdale, FL (September 13, 2018) — Green Roads, a CBD industry pioneer ranked as one of Forbes Top 10 CBD companies in the country, will be sharing its knowledge and products as it educates on the health and wellness benefits and advantages of CBD during its national “road show” series. While enlightening various audiences, its primary focus will be those in health and wellness, dietary supplements, product distribution as well as, natural products.
“The consumer must be educated that all CBD products are not created equally,” said Green Roads Co-founder and Chief Evangelist Arby Barroso, who co-founded Green Roads with licensed compound pharmacist Laura Baldwin Fuentes. “The combination of education and regulated ingredients is critical to our Green Roads consumers as well as our partners in retail and distribution.”
Barroso cautioned that “there are many new companies without pharmacist-level knowledge and expertise that are ‘jumping in’ to take advantage of this rapidly accelerating market with products created with poor quality Cannabidiol oil and harmful ingredients. Though the industry currently has limited regulations, Green Roads from day one has been passionately committed to using the highest grade raw materials and all natural ingredients in its pharmacist-formulated products.”
Barroso and Fuentes partnered to develop an effective, safe alternative to prescription painkillers and other toxic prescription and over-the-counter drugs that contain harsh chemical compounds alien to nature’s perfect remedies. Green Roads 50+ ingestible, sublingual and topical products are formulated by Fuentes, who had 25+ years’ experience in the traditional pharmaceutical world before successfully transitioning into pioneering product research, development and formulation in the hemp industry.
Researched, developed and produced in a state-of-the-art ISO 6 clean room to ensure purity and potency, each new batch of Green Roads product is tested by a third-party lab that has ISO 17025 accreditation to ensure that all products are “clean” — without pesticides, solvents, metals or unnatural substances. Committed to full transparency, Green Roads includes QR codes on all of its products that link directly to the lab test for the particular product(s) purchased.
Green Roads Goes “On the Road” to Share Benefits, Advantages of CBD

Green Roads is committed to giving back to the community and supports Big Brothers Big Sisters of Broward, Florida Epilepsy Foundation, Rheumatoid Arthritis Foundation, MS News and Views, etc.
“Since full transparency has always been our company’s hallmark, our job while on tour is to meet and talk candidly with those who want to add CBD products to their inventories and recommended patient therapies as well as consumers who want a safe, natural alternative,” add Barroso. “We welcome hard, probing questions on CBD…the kind many are afraid to ask, the kind that can dispel stigmatizing misconceptions.”
