What is the entourage effect and why is it so important when talking about CBD? A great place for a deeper dive into this topic can be found here. Below, we pick out some of the key areas and explain why we believe in its merits.
It is believed that these compounds work together to produce a combined effect that’s significantly more effective than a single active ingredient.
In the research, here, the analysis revealed that pure CBD extracts were far less effective in reducing the occurrence of seizures in epilepsy patients than extracts that included a mixture of cannabinoids and terpenes. 71% of those who took this specific medicine had fewer seizures, with only 46% of those treated with pure CBD experiencing the same result. There is also lots of anecdotal evidence and we expect to see this area further explored with many research projects in the pipeline.
It’s no surprise that the natural plant in its entirety, is more useful than a lab-isolated product.
Last week the Cold-Pressed Cannabinoids team were at the ‘lunch!’ exhibition in London launching our retail offer to stores throughout the UK.
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!

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.
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!

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.
