Pioneer Green USA to Launch CBD Store Franchising
Toronto, Ontario (FSCwire) - Oxford Investments Holdings Inc. (“Oxford” or the “Company”) (OTCMKTS: OXIHF) is pleased to announce that its US-based subsidiary, FloraCana Consultants, Inc. (“FloraCana”), operating under the name of “Pioneer Green USA”, has opened an office in Palmetto, Florida. The office will serve as Floracana’s administrative headquarters, and also contains the first Pioneer Green USA CBD store.
Pioneer Green USA is launching a CBD (Cannabidiol) store franchise opportunity throughout the US, and the Palmetto location will serve as a model storefront for prospective franchisees. Florida represents a significant initial market due its large population size and over-40 demographic.
“We believe that CBD will be one of the most prospective franchise opportunities in 2018 because CBD is expected to be one of the fastest growing industries in the US over the next three to five years as more people become aware of the potential health and wellness benefits of CBD.” stated Michael Donaghy, President of Oxford. “Once we establish our presence in Florida, we will look to expand our franchises into other states and strive to make Pioneer Green USA into a nationally recognized brand.”
The CBD market is a large part of the legal cannabis industry. The Hemp Business Journal estimates that the CBD market will grow to a 2.1 billion USD market in consumer sales by 2020 with $450 million USD of those sales coming from hemp-based sources. That is a 700% increase from 2016. In 2015, the market for consumer sales of hemp-derived CBD products was $90 million USD.
CBD (Cannabidiol) is a hemp-derived compound that has potentially significant medical benefits to human and animal health and wellness. Scientific and clinical research, often supported by academia, the US government, and the World Health Organization, which has concluded that CBD offers a range of medical health benefits without the potential to be abused or cause harm in users. This makes it an appealing option for patients looking for relief from inflammation, pain, anxiety, psychosis, seizures, spasms, and other conditions without disconcerting feelings of tiredness or feeling “stoned”.
CBD that is derived from hemp is legal to import and purchase in all 50 U.S. states, without a prescription. Unlike THC and marijuana, Cannabidiol itself isn’t listed in the Controlled Substances Act.
Pioneer Green USA will offer prospective franchisees a turn-key operation. Pioneer Green personnel will set up a franchise store and stock it with a variety of CBD products ranging from oils, vaporizers, salves and ointments which are white-labelled specifically for Pioneer Green from multiple suppliers.
