CBD oil is increasingly acclaimed for its benefits. Use as an e-liquid for vaping, but also as a dietary supplement to fight against stress or depression, CBD is everywhere.

Find out what its benefits are, how to consume it, and where to find it.

With some of the best online suppliers in Europe, British users can now easily find and order CBD flowers in UK. It has simplified the way to purchase high-quality CBD online, and we can now enjoy the best CBD oils.

What is CBD oil?

CBD, or cannabidiol, is part of the family of cannabinoids, a group of molecules found in the hemp plant, such as THC or CBD. We all have so-called cannabinoid receptors in our brains, which explains why these compounds have a more or less significant impact on the human nervous system.

CBD oil is extracted from the cannabis plant. It contains mostly cannabidiol, the concentration of which varies depending on the product. Today it is mainly used as an e-liquid for electronic cigarettes, as CBD oil to add in food and drinks, and CBD capsules.

While the hemp plant has been cultivated for over 6.000 years in China, it is only today that CBD oil is becoming more and more popular, as scientists discover many benefits for our organism. Indeed, unlike THC, another cannabinoid, CBD does not have psychotropic properties. For this reason, cannabidiol is also called “therapeutic cannabis”!

What are the effects of CBD oil?

Unlike THC, the effects of CBD oil are not harmful to our nervous system. CBD does not cause a feeling of intoxication or euphoria, unlike THC, and therefore no loss of control.

Conversely, it offers a feeling of serenity and a sense of relaxation. CBD is also found in recognized drugs like Cannador, Sativex, or Epidiolex.

To start with, CBD oil can help you fall asleep. If it does not have the effect of a sleeping pill, it will, however, cause your body to relax to promote falling asleep indirectly.

Likewise, CBD oil can help you not only to combat stress but also to regulate your mood. Indeed, CBD acts in particular on receptors linked to anxiety. For this reason, it is reputed to be a powerful anxiolytic and is effective in treating depression.

Note that paradoxically, CBD oil can help you fight against drug addiction since it will promote emotional balance while helping you overcome anxiety and stress, often overwhelming during withdrawal.

Finally, CBD oil can be used as an anti-inflammatory, especially in the case of Crohn’s disease, a chronic inflammatory disease of the digestive system.

How should you use CBD oil?

CBD oil is consumed orally, by placing 1 to 2 drops on your tongue or by adding them to your food or drink. The bottles sold are therefore often equipped with a pipette. After swallowing the CBD oil drops, leave it on for 30 seconds before continuing to eat or keep busy.

Please note, it is essential not to exceed 3 doses per day. If you take too much CBD oil, you risk increasing the relaxing effects and wanting to sleep! The ideal is to start with a low dosage and increase it gradually if you support it.

Also, CBD oil is not recommended for pregnant women.

Is CBD oil legal in the UK?

Cannabis derivatives do not have an outstanding reputation, in particular, because of THC, the compound which has psychotropic effects. European legislation is therefore relatively strict with cannabidiol. For example, any product containing THC is prohibited if the THC level exceeds 0.2 %.

However, products from Cannabis sativa seeds and stems are not prohibited in the UK, which explains why most of the CBD oils currently on sale come from them. Despite everything, CBD oil remains banned for minors. No law has been enacted regarding CBD oil, but case law prevails until European law issues an opinion on the subject, not always in a pleasant manner!

Where to buy CBD oil?

CBD-based products are very numerous: crystals (the purest form) for culinary preparations or other uses of this type, oil, e-liquid for electronic cigarettes, CBD flowers, CBD resins, etc. You will, therefore, have no harm to find CBD for your consumption.

On the Internet, you will mainly find CBD oil, as on the online store. You will find a whole lot of websites that are claiming to sell the best CBD products. However, you should only buy the best quality of CBD flowers and CBD oils.

Check websites such as Justbob.shop to find the right CBD products. As a leading company in Europe, this supplier from Italy is offering natural CBD flowers and great CBD oils. Also, they are following a set of many quality controls, and they are recognized by the Italian authorities, which means that they are well-known and that they are complying with local and European laws.

With the current climate of social distancing and uncertainty, it’s no surprise that events have been forced to cancel or postpone left, right, and centre. Despite the disruption caused by the Coronavirus pandemic, some organisers are persevering with their plans – at least for the time being. One of those events is the Europe Canna Expo, set to take place in  London in July.

The Europe Canna Expo (ECE) is scheduled to make a return to London for a 2-day event on 26-27 July. Following the success of last year’s Europe CBD expo at the same location, the ECE will aim to bring together over 90 speakers and 125 exhibitors.

The Venue

The ECE is set to make a return to the London ExCel Centre in Canning Town East London. The event was held at the venue in July 2019, with an array of exhibitors and speakers. This year, the Europe Canna Expo is expected to be even bigger. However, uncertainty remains over the event.

The ExCel Centre is currently home to the temporary Nightingale hospital – the improvised care centre for victims of the Coronavirus. It remains unclear when the need for the venue will be over as the UK’s Coronavirus lockdown continues.

Exhibitors and Speakers

However, should the expo go on as planned, attendees will be spoilt for choice with speakers and professionals set to provide insights into the CBD, cannabinoid, and medical cannabis industries. In addition, the event will be present a huge number of exhibitors including a variety of manufacturers and businesses.

Speakers will include international experts showcasing senior-level insights and global scientific research in the CBD, cannabinoid and medical cannabis sectors. Organisers of the event expect that attendees will include consumers and businesses, as well as policymakers and press.

The event will provide an opportunity for global leading brands to showcase their products to thousands of attendees. From CBD drinks and chocolates to medicinal products, the Europe Canna Expo plans to present the most innovative international brands.

Event Schedule

The ECE organisers are yet to release a detailed schedule for the two-day cannabis expo. This may be due to the ongoing uncertainty surrounding the Coronavirus lockdown. For more information and up-to-date announcements, visit the ECE London website.

“The Immune Support product launch has been the most successful product launch in the history of our First Class brand.

Mota Ventures $MOTA.ca Moves Forward with Its Acquisition of Spanish CBD Company Sativida $APH.ca $GBLX $PFE $ACG.ca $ACB.ca $WEED.ca $HIP.ca $WMD.ca $CGRW

Posted by AGORACOM-Eric at 8:51 AM on Thursday, March 26th, 2020

Mota Ventures Corp. (CSE:MOTA)(FSE:1WZ:GR)(OTCPINK:PEMTF) (the “Company” or “Mota“) is pleased to announce that further to its January 10, 2020 news release, it has now acquired the intellectual property and trade names of Sativida from Sativida OU (Estonia). The Company will license both back to Sativida OU’s subsidiary, VIDA BCN LABS S.L. (collectively with Sativida OU, “Sativida“) in exchange for a royalty associated with the gross revenues generated by Sativida.

Sativida is an arms’-length producer and online retailer of cannabidiol (“CBD“) and branded CBD products in various jurisdictions in Europe, including Spain, Portugal, Austria, Germany, France and the United Kingdom. Sativida currently develops and retails a vast range of organic CBD oils and cosmetics across Europe and is in the process of expanding its distribution network internationally to include the United States. Sativida has become the number one search-ranked online retailer of CBD products in Spain and Mexico, and intends to continue its expansion into other countries in Europe and Latin America.

Through Mota, Sativida has an agreement with Unified Funding, LLC (“Unified“) for the expansion of the brand into the United States. Unified will provide assistance to Sativida with product sourcing, packaging, shipping, payment infrastructure and marketing in the United States. Unified Funding is an e-Commerce and technology company focused on serving U.S.-based and international consumers in the CBD and natural health products market. Powered by its proprietary technology platform, Unified has created an e-Commerce ecosystem to scale its brands through data analysis, strategic customer acquisition and supply chain management. Since June 2015, Unified has generated a database of over 4.5 million consumers and has facilitated over US$200 million in consumer transactions from more than one million paying customers.

“I am very excited to announce the acquisition of the Sativida brand. This gives Mota immediate entry into the European market and will be a building block for our planned European expansion. Mota’s U.S. operation, First Class CBD, is set to enter the European market and we expect the acquisition of the Sativida brand to expedite this expansion. Furthermore, our partnership with Unified Funding, LLC, the e-Commerce platform behind the success of First Class CBD, will allow us to bring the Sativida brand to the U.S. market as well,” stated Ryan Hoggan, CEO of the Company.

Noah Laith, founder of Sativida, commented, “Joining Mota is a major step for Sativida that will provide access to the capital, connections and infrastructure necessary to grow our business in Europe and internationally.”

Pursuant to the previously announced binding agreement with Sativida dated January 9, 2020 (the “Transaction Agreement“), the Company was granted the right to acquire Sativida in stages (the “Transaction“), at the discretion of the Company, as certain corporate and intellectual property registrations were completed. To accomplish this, the Company set up a wholly-owned Spanish subsidiary (“Spanish Subco“) and coordinated the registration of various intellectual property and trade names associated with business operations of Sativida.

The Company, through Spanish Subco, has now completed the acquisition of the intellectual property and trade names of Sativida in Spain, and will license both back to Sativida in exchange for a royalty associated with the gross revenues generated by Sativida. Pursuant to the Transaction Agreement, the Company also holds the right to acquire, through Spanish Subco, all of the outstanding share capital of Sativida at any time for no additional consideration.

Consideration for the Transaction is made up of an initial component of €2,000,001 (the “Consideration“) and an earn-out component made up of three milestone payments based upon the revenue of Sativida (each, a “Milestone Payment“). The Consideration was paid in 5,496,221 common shares of the Company (the “Consideration Shares“) at a deemed price of $0.5689 per share. Each Milestone Payment will be based on a 400% multiple of Sativida’s revenue until the aggregate of the Initial Consideration and Milestone Payments reaches €4,000,000, at which point the multiple will be reduced to 100%. In no event will the combined Milestone Payments and the value of the Initial Consideration exceed €15,000,000. Payment of the Milestone Payments will be satisfied by the Company issuing common shares (“Milestone Shares“) to Sativida. The total number of Milestone Shares issuable to Sativida will be determined by dividing the amount due by the volume weighted average closing price of the Company’s common shares on the Canadian Securities Exchange in the ten trading days prior to the day that the Milestone Payment is due.

The Consideration Shares and the Milestone Shares will each be subject to a 36-month pooling arrangement such that 10% of the Consideration Shares, or the Milestone Shares, as applicable, will be released from escrow on upon their issuance, with an additional 15% being released every six-months thereafter until all Consideration Shares or all Milestone Shares, as applicable, are released.

As part of the Transaction, Mota Ventures will enter into employment contracts with certain employees of Sativida and will provide an option pool that may be divided among the employees of Sativida equal to €60,000 in stock options of Mota Ventures for every €1,000,000 in revenue that Sativida earns, subject to certain conditions. Additionally, Mota Ventures has paid a 10% finder’s fee based on the total value of the Consideration Shares (528,072 common shares) to certain finders that assisted in introducing the Transaction to the parties as well as a 2% administrative success fee based on the total value of the Consideration Shares (105,614 common shares) to a consultant who assisted in the administration of the transaction.

The Company and Sativida are at arms’-length. The Transaction is not expected to result in a “reverse-takeover” or “fundamental change” for the Company under the policies of the Canadian Securities Exchange, or result in the creation of any new insider or control person of the Company.

Mota Ventures Corp. (CSE:MOTA)(FSE:1WZ:GR)(OTC:PEMTF) (the “Company” or “Mota”) is pleased to announce that since the launch of the Pure Herbal Immunity Blend under the First Class brand on March 14th, 2020, it has had an exceptional reception, acquiring 1,838 new customers.

The all-natural Immunity Blend is made from 100% pure essential oils, including cinnamon leaf, lemon, clove bud, lime, eucalyptus globulus, rosemary, peppermint, spearmint and oregano. Due to customer demand for pure and efficacious products to support the immune system, the Company will be launching an Immune CBD oil, along with an Elderberry Gummy product on Monday, March 23rd. The new Immune CBD product contains CBD, B3, B12, Vitamin C and Zinc. Based on the success of the launch, First Class will be increasing marketing efforts throughout the US.

The Company plans to offer similar immune products in Europe through its Sativida brand, which currently retails product in various jurisdictions in Europe, including Spain, Portugal, Austria, Germany, France and the United Kingdom.

The Company anticipates the completion of the Sativida transaction in the next seven days. Further to its January 10, 2020 news release, the Company will acquire the intellectual property and trade names of Sativida from VIDA BCN LABS SL (Spain) and Sativida OU (Estonia) (collectively, “Sativida”). The Company will license both back to Sativida in exchange for a royalty associated with the gross revenues generated by Sativida.

“As our customers around the globe face challenges in their daily lives, we are working diligently to provide products to help families with natural health needs. Our supply chain is operating uninterrupted and we are quickly working to expand our immune support product line. We stand ready to continue to adapt to market changes and innovate new products to take advantage of the numerous opportunities ahead”, states Ryan Hoggan, CEO of the Company.
