Coming to a store near you…

Last week the Cold-Pressed Cannabinoids team were at the ‘lunch!’ exhibition in London launching our retail offer to stores throughout the UK.

COLD-PRESSED EXHIBITION

The event offered an opportunity for us to speak to a range of different retailers allowing us to think outside the box. The retailers included;

Independents – having already achieved a considerable amount of listings in this area, it was no surprise to see many health stores and other independent retailers drop by the stand to discuss our products.

Supermarkets – these outlets will allow us to spread the message far and wide to help us to achieve our mission for ‘Universal Acceptance of the Plant’.

Coffee shops – we have demonstrated great results when retailing our gummy bears in the Cabana Verde coffee shops. Our range of packaging allows for customers to try the gummies whilst enjoying their coffee and then take away a large pack to consume at a later date.

Cocktail bars – what better way to add a different element to your cocktail than including a gummy as ‘garnish’. Also, CBD can enhance the enjoyment of cocktails consumed in the bar.

Tattoo studios – the gummies really made their name whilst appearing in the studios of some of the best tattoo artist in the world. Therefore it’s no surprise that tattooist are expanded their range of goods by offering the 7 and 30 day packs to their customers.

Event organisers – this did come as more of a surprise, but demand also came from event organisers and private members clubs looking to bring something new to the party!

If you would like to discuss stocking everyone’s favourite CBD gummy bears then get in touch with Dan on the contact information below.

NFTs that spread ‘Universal Acceptance of the Plant’

NFTs that spread ‘Universal Acceptance of the Plant’

Having fallen down the rabbit hole of NFTs over the last months we have really begun to appreciate what ‘Web 3.0’ can bring to the world and, in particular, our creative community! As Cold-Pressed Cannabinoids has developed we have really built an affinity with our community and, along with showing our appreciation for your support, we also wanted to find ways that we can give back. Launching our first ever NFTs with our collaborators has been great fun and we look forward to continuing to push the boundaries to achieve our goal for acceptance for the cannabis plant.

What is an NFT?

NFT is an acronym for ‘non-fungible token’. This is a unit of data stored on a digital ledger, called a blockchain, that certifies a digital asset to be unique and therefore non interchangeable. In layman terms, an NFT verifies the authenticity of a piece of art, its origin and its ownership. When purchasing fine art, collectors are buying the values listed above and this new technology is the latest way to digitalise this asset class.

As you will know, each month we produce a unique subscriber gift in collaboration with an artist that we work with. The artist kindly dedicates their time to create a unique design that we incorporate into a gift such as hats, socks, stickers etc. We decided to give this art longevity by creating the design as an NFT. We then offer the opportunity to purchase the NFT and own something we believe has real value!

For those who wish to purchase our NFTs not only will you be supporting our aim for ‘Universal Acceptance of the Plant’ but you will also be supporting the artist. As we promote and grow our collection we also see the opportunity for further value creation!

Check out our current NFT collection and make an offer to purchase here:

Cold Pressed CBD

Cold Pressed CBD

The cold-pressed method of extracting CBD from the cannabis plant is a natural alternative to the more volatile extraction process used by most CBD producers. Cold-pressed CBD contains all the elements of the hemp plant which offers the best Entourage Effect.

During the cold-pressed extraction process, the plant is passed through a press, squeezing out the organic extract. This ensure that all of the vitamins, omegas, nutrients and phytonutrients remain in the finished product.

The reason behind the more widely used extraction processes (such as co2 and Alcohol extraction) is purely down to maximising profits and scale at the detriment of a more natural product.

The Hemp Economy

The Hemp Economy

Hemp is a variety of the cannabis sativa plant. The main differentiating factor between cannabis and hemp is its very low THC content. As hemp only contains trace amounts of the psychoactive cannabinoid it is legal in many places throughout the world. Like cannabis, there are many strains of hemp containing different cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids. Some produce more seeds whilst others have been bred for their fibres.

Hemp is one of the most versatile plants in the plant kingdom. It is used to produce the following;

Food

The seeds from hemp are high in protein, fat, fibre, B vitamins and iron. They can be turned into hemp milk, hemp oil or eaten raw. Also the leaves, though not as nutritional, can be consumed in salads or pressed to make hemp juice. 

Clothing

Hemp fabrics are made from the fibres found on the stalks of the hemp plant. The fabric surpasses cotton and other textiles by most metrics whilst still maintaining a very similar texture to cotton. Clothes made from hemp tend to last 3 times as long as clothes made from cotton. 

Building materials

Hemp blocks, made with hemp and lime, have been used as an insulating material for construction. They are not strong enough to be used for structural elements however they are becoming a popular choice for insulation.

Paper

Unfortunately, although hemp paper is a more sustainable option, it is currently cost prohibitive at four to five times the production cost as paper from wood. We hope to see more innovation from the industry to drive costs down so that we can use a paper that doesn’t require the use of toxic bleaching or as many chemicals as wood pulp paper whilst helping to prevent deforestation.

Biofuels 

Hempoline is a biodiesel made from the oil in hemp seeds. Hemp ingests CO2 faster than trees and also returns 70% of its nutrients back into the soil. This means that hemp requires less fertiliser and is a great renewable resource crop.

CBD production

Though hemp has lower concentrations of THC, it does produce another useful cannabinoid called cannabidiol (CBD). It can be consumed in a number of ways and you can try our very own CBD gummies by heading to our online shop.

How can hemp help the economy and why should it happen?

We believe that a hemp economy is a sustainable economy. In recent decades, the effects of unsustainable practises have accelerated climate change. Hemp can serve more than 2500 purposes and poses a much more sustainable alternative to other traditional crops. Hemp;

  • Returns higher amounts of nutrients to the ground
  • Uses less water than traditional crops
  • Produces higher yields from the same space
  • Naturally resistant to pests, diseases and fungus
  • Hemp grows much faster which can increase profit for farmers
  • Can help address deforestation
