“The second quarter was especially strong for our Nu-X business,” said Larry Wexler, President and CEO. “Nu-X sales of $4.3 million in the quarter were up robustly from the $0.8 million in the first quarter. CBD products and RipTide vaping systems accounted for substantially all Nu-X sales in the quarter.
