Reasons to Invest

CBD sales are predicted to reach $20B by 2024, and the overall U.S cannabis industry could pump nearly $80 billion annually by 2022.
First-mover advantage and strategic market position in a multi billion-dollar market.
Through smart partnerships, we’ve been able to achieve zero contact automated dispensaries and have agreed to a multi-store deal with SIMON malls and PREIT malls across 4 states. We are also backed by over 2000 investors, and raised $1.07M in seed funding in 2020.

Building the Foundation of the Market

At Chow420, we’ve built the backbone of the CBD industry and all federally legal cannabis products. We have successfully placed ourselves as the perfect midpoint service provider in an emerging billion-dollar market by seamlessly connecting retailers and brands to customers in the most compliant and transparent way through our blockchain-powered ecosystem.

The Problem


The CBD industry is unregulated and oversaturated

In the over-saturated and un-regulated CBD industry, quality brands are being drowned out. Trapped in spaces where they have to compete with lower quality offerings. Over 70% of products in the market are mislabeled, state laws change every day, and customers are put at risk when brands make false health claims. The need for one central source of truth and compliance for the CBD market and the incoming cannabis market is as urgent as ever. This is where Chow420 inserts its presence. We are creating a wholly serviced ecosystem for all stakeholders, simultaneously facilitating commerce and building a useful data bank.


 
Official launch date of Chow Certified is August 2021

The Solution


A Reliable Ecosystem for CBD Sales

Chow420 is the one-stop destination for the CBD industry and all other federally legal cannabis products. At Chow, we've built a world-class blockchain-powered ecosystem with the capacity to house the entire billion-dollar cannabis market. With Chow420, customers are able to buy products that have been vetted and recorded on the blockchain to be labeled correctly, safe for use, and, most of all, compliant with their state laws and regulations. On the other hand, retailers utilize our adaptable eCommerce to scale their businesses online. Seamlessly advertising and selling through our online platform and automated dispensaries.  And because our offerings come pre-arranged with legal and age compliance controls and management, our clients do not have to commit their own resources for such expenditures.

With our smart ecosystem that is made up of our automated dispensaries and online marketplace, we plan to build the bedrock for the cannabis market. We believe our automated dispensaries will allow us to launch faster than the competition while our online marketplace will serve as the backbone for the market online.    

The Market


CBD Sales are predicted to hit $20B by 2024

Currently, there is no dominant retailer in the CBD market, which means that there is an opening for a niche leader. With our proprietary marketplace, we’ve been able to create an efficient and smart way to take advantage of this opportunity by furnishing thousands of cannabis stores and brands with a pliable and decentralized platform for commerce.

CBD - The Intersection with billion-dollar industries:

CBD exists right at the intersection of 3 huge consumer trends. The $49 billion "Herbal Supplement Industry", the growing anxiety economy and the almost overnight rise of the legal cannabis industry.

Our Traction


A Revolutionary Product and Strong Partnerships

  • Fully built Amazon-caliber marketplace platform to support the entire CBD/Hemp cannabis industry online. See at  https://www.chow420.com/

  • Signed a multi store agreement to launch zero-contact automated stores across 4 states  - August 2021.

  • Built Chow420's cannabis blockchain certification process (Launch - July 2021) that provides trust and enforces the accuracy of product labels for cannabis products.

  • Successfully democratized legal compliance for hemp cannabis businesses nationwide, saving businesses thousands in legal fees when they sell on Chow420. We believe that this puts us a step closer to achieving the most practical platform for the cannabis market online. Our online marketplace is the first platform to combine seamless e-commerce, legal compliance, tax compliance, and age verification for specifically CBD retailers and brands.




  • Partnered with a manufacturer to produce 4 CBD brands internally that are all available on Chow420.com and in ChowPods (Cibigo, Chowthis, Moon, Endless Feelings).
  • Successfully built an insightful data-driven way for customers to see the health benefits of products without breaking FDA rules and guidelines.




What We Do


We Vet and Sell High-Quality CBD Products

We vet products on the blockchain through smart contracts with manufacturers and cannabis labs to ensure that our customers get only the best products (Chow Certified). We also automate customer compliance with their respective state laws (ChowCheck) and make it easy for customers to access products through our automated dispensaries and online marketplace. We are using the Amazon marketplace approach to become a dominant retailer for the industry in a fast and efficient way.

What is Chow Check

Chow Check is a patent-pending process that gives customers and retailers/brands unique identities. These unique identities are used to determine who the user is and what state laws pertain to the user i.e customer or the retailer. With these unique identities, we are able to streamline legal compliance for customers and retailers in real-time on our network.

ChowCheck for CBD Brands & Companies:



ChowCheck for CBD customers:

What is Chow Certified - Blockchain

With the over-saturation of CBD products in the market (CBD is not FDA-regulated), we believe it is imperative to have a set, trusted, and unforgeable certification standard for cannabis and CBD products.


Chow Certified is a digital blockchain certification process that enforces product-label accuracy for CBD and other federally legal cannabis products. For a product to be Chow certified, two smart contracts must take place. The first smart contract happens when a product passes our vetting process. The first contract is between the brand and Chow420. The second contract happens when our system validates the lab result of the product by searching the database of the cannabis lab responsible for testing the product. The Chow certification is an unforgeable and unbreakable certification that gives all cannabis products a UNIQUE IDENTITY that allows us to gain customer trust, verify the source of all products and enforce the accuracy of product labels on Chow420. 

We plan to introduce third-party vetters and verifiers to our network in the near future.

The Business Model


Generating Multiple Streams of Revenue with One Platform

  • Online marketplace subscription: We charge retailers and brands monthly fees to sell on our platform.

  • 15% fee on all online transactions: We take 15% to 20% of all online transactions that go through our platform.

  • High-yield brands (50% to 380% Margins): We’ve lined up specific, high-yield partnerships,  some of which allow us to make 387% of our cost price on each product we sell.

  • Chow Certified fee - Starting this fall, we will charge sellers a fee to be Chow Certified based on the price of their product.

  • Chow ADS: We plan to roll out the first version of our Chow CBD video ads in August 2021. The Chow video ads is an intuitive framework within our ecosystem that allows companies to promote products to customers. Cannabis companies are projected to spend over $3 billion dollars in ads by 2025 in North America alone, and we see huge potential here for brands within the Chow420 ecosystem, especially with the fact that Facebook, Google, and other social media platforms restrict CBD and cannabis ads.

Source

  • ChowPay and Chowcash: We’ve successfully launched our internal payment credit system for buyers on Chow420.com called Chowcash, and we plan to use this wallet system to streamline payments for other brands and stores outside our ecosystem. We plan to charge retailers and brands 3% per transaction when they use ChowPay for their online and physical businesses. With the cannabis market projected to reach $80 billion by 2022, and with the issue of prominent payment system providers staying away from the market, we believe this is a great opportunity for us.


  • Raas (Chowgo): The COVID-19 Pandemic has exposed the fragility of present physical retail solutions, so we plan to launch a RAAS (Retail as a service) solution called Chowgo. However, due to delays because from COVID 19, we have decided to suspend this concept (to be revisited in 2022) for now and focus on the core aspects of our business; ChowPods, Chow Stores, and Chow420.com.

How We Are Different


A Smart Retail Company for Federally Legal Cannabis Products

CBD sales are predicted to reach $20 Billion by 2024, and the overall U.S cannabis could pump nearly $80 billion annually by 2022. Chow420 is a full whole commercial solutions construct. Anchored on innovation in sales and marketing, legal compliance, data management and the provision of a platform that could activate latent potentials across all the functions that an aspiring and active CBD business would need to grow while maintaining prudency.

1.  First in the market that we've seen of a smart retail company for federally legal cannabis products

No other company has entered the CBD market with the technology of seamlessly integrating a physical and online platform that makes it easier for consumers to shop from over 200 CBD brands at home and in person. While there may be other brick-and-mortar retailers and websites for CBD products, we’re the first place to create a dynamic one-stop shop for customers and retailers. The emphasis is on the creation of a sustainable and self-powered ecosystem for the market which has been largely ignored and under-provisioned. 

*Images are computer generated demo versions. Product is still currently under development.

2. Proprietary marketplace that can help us scale faster to become a dominant retailer in a cost-effective way

We’ve built the perfect platform that allows brands and store owners to sell directly to customers under the Chow420 umbrella in the most compliant way. This approach has proved to be very successful for new and emerging industries throughout history. Amazon became successful by doing the same for eCommerce business, Uber became successful by connecting multiple drivers to customers, Etsy became successful by creating a marketplace for handmade crafts and we believe Chow420 can be very successful by building a streamlined marketplace for the cannabis industry.

 Beyond the connectivity, Chow420 is also incorporating other stakeholders such as testing laboratories and an in-built payment system rationale. These are in order to allow the flow of finance and data to the flow of goods, between relevant parties. 


3. Automated Compliance and Blockchain

Our ChowCheck and ChowCertified process separate us from the Crowd. Our patent-pending Chowcheck allows us to automate compliance in real-time, while our Chow Certified process allows us to certify and verify brands in an intuitive and efficient way.


*This testimonial may not be representative of the experience of other customers and is not a guarantee of future performance or success.

4. Zero-Contact Automated Pods & Stores

Through smart partnerships, we’ve been able to build zero-contact age-verification automated stores. We believe our zero contact automated stores will allow us to launch physical stores much faster than our competition. In 2021, we came up with two types of machines and a movable store to streamline our launch process:



*Images are computer generated demo versions. Product is still currently under development

What are ChowPods

ChowPods are zero contact automated dispensaries that make CBD accessible to customers on the go. Our dispensaries allow us to verify customer age and allow customers to control the machine from their phones. ChowPods will be predominantly found in malls and common areas.


What are Chow Stores - A Closer Look

Through smart partnerships, we’ve been able to achieve zero contact multi-panel machines that allow us to store as many as 2,000 products at a time. Chow stores are made up of 3 panels or 6 panels depending on the size of the space (Panels Join Together).  We are currently working with an architectural firm and negotiating with building owners in Philadelphia, and New York to successfully launch a street-facing Chow Automated Store. 


*Images are computer generated demo versions. Product is still currently under development

 Truly Zero Contact Machines

The ChowPod allows customers to shop and pay with a QR code. This makes the ChowPod more effective and attractive to our customers. Videos and media files showing the zero contact ChowPods will be available in August when we start launching our machines.

June 2021:  Signed a multi-store deal with PREIT malls and have agreed to a regional deal with the largest mall owner in the country, SIMON malls. We believe that these deals will set the tone for many more deals with other mall companies and convenience store chains in the near future. Machines are set to launch in August 2021.


2020 Launch Delays: We postponed all machine and store launch dates to 2021. This was due to the 2019 COVID pandemic, and customer behavior.


5. Data-Driven Review System

We use data to solve the confusion around CBD effects through the use of a transparent and in-depth review system for customers to interact with other customers that have used a product, share experiences, and also communicate with the brands themselves to get more insight on products. With our review system, customers get full knowledge of every product before making a purchase.

6. We are more than a technology company

To add to our offering as the one-stop stop destination for the cannabis industry, we manufacture 4 CBD brands i.e Cibigo, Moon, Chowthis, Endless Feelings. Thereby, taking a proprietary stand in the market. An affirmation of our belief and trust in the market and our system. These CBD brands allow us to make as much as 300% of our cost price and will be at the forefront of our automated stores.


7.  Lightning-Fast Shipping - Chow’s Choice

In order to be able to become a dominant player in the CBD space, we have decided to partner with shipping companies that possess fulfillment centers across delineated high-traffic geographical market segments of ours in Northeastern, Midwestern, and West Coast regions of the United States. These arrangements will enable us to ship products to customers within 1 to 3 days. This lightning-fast shipping on Chow420 is only for Chow’s Choice products (our version of Amazon Prime).

8. Exceptional Rewards Program

Our focus as a company is centered around customer satisfaction and providing the most attractive option for customers in the cannabis market with Chowcash. At Chow, customers get 2% cashback, $1 to $3 back when they review past purchases, and $20 when they invite loved ones to Chow420.

The Vision


Laying the Bedrock of the Cannabis Industry

By 2025, we plan to have automated dispensaries across the country and maintain an efficient online marketplace that will enable us to have a dominant presence and be an indispensable service for customers, brands, and retailers in this space. We believe our strategic positioning will allow us to play a definitive role in the overall cannabis market. Our goal is to become the central eCommerce and verification platform for the cannabis industry. Providing trust, compliance, and convenience for customers in this space.  We plan to support most of the industry online and offline in the near future.

THC

We plan to jump into the THC market as soon as it becomes legal on the federal level in the U.S - The U.S cannabis industry could pump nearly $80 billion on an annual basis into the nation’s economy by 2022.

After decades of unfair cannabis laws. Our goal is to make legal compliance accessible to everyone and not only large corporations. We believe that federally legal cannabis opportunities should be accessible to everyone, especially for communities that have been affected by these laws, so that they too can benefit from the incoming cannabis boom and the government's new stance on cannabis.

More details about this will be released in next week's update. Please bear in mind that this will push the launch date of our machines at SIMON to October 1st, to give us more time to convert all ChowPods to  Automated  Kiosks.

Current Status Of Blockchain Migration

We are currently certifying products that meet our blockchain criteria. Defaulting brands will be given 1 month to update their lab results. We anticipate 100% migration to happen by the end of next week.


Why are we doing this?


THE PROBLEM

Misrepresentation of product content at the expense of consumer safety.

“Over 70% of top-selling hemp CBD products in the market tested positive for heavy metals, pesticides, mold and other dangerous impurities”

- Investigative report from Ellipse Analytics

 

OUR SOLUTION

 Our blockchain verification protocols determine the accuracy of a product’s lab test results by comparing it against the databases of testing labs. Our system flags discrepancies, and delists defaulting products, thereby empowering our customers to shop for CBD with confidence.

Chow ADS

Cannabis companies are projected to spend over $3 billion dollars in ads by 2025 in North America alone 

The first iteration of Chow Ads is now live for Brands on our platform


The Chow video ads is an intuitive framework within our ecosystem that allows companies to promote products to customers. Cannabis companies are projected to spend over $3 billion dollars in ads by 2025 in North America alone, and we see a huge potential here for brands within the Chow420 ecosystem, especially with the fact that Facebook, Google, and other social media platforms restrict CBD and cannabis ads.


The first iteration of Chow ADS is FREE for brands. However, we plan to make this a main source of revenue for Chow420


Over 300 Investors! 

Thank You


Video: Chow420 Blockchain Label Certification is set to launch August 9th 2021

3 months ago


Launch - August 9th, 2021

Years have gone by since the Farm Bill legalized Hemp CBD in 2018 but there is still little to no regulation of CBD products. This has led to an oversaturated and unregulated market with many companies making false claims about their products. But what if we told you that we can solve Cannabis’ trust problem through Blockchain technology. 

The team at Chow420 has built a first-of-its-kind cannabis product certification process on the Binance blockchain Network. Our verification protocols determine the accuracy of a product’s lab test results by comparing it against the databases of testing laboratories and flags discrepancies, arming consumers to buy their CBD with confidence, and discouraging bad actors in the market. And we’re only getting started. 

Soon, we plan on using blockchain technology to track each cannabis product from seed to sale. Giving the industry the transparency and safety it needs to grow even more. 

Welcome to the future of trust, Welcome to Chow420.

Over 100k Raised | Chow420's blockchain-powered cannabis label certification

Binance Smart Chain  X  Chow420


This month, Chow420 will launch arguably the first cannabis blockchain label certification on the Binance Smart Chain. More details about Chow420 Certified and a whitepaper will be released in the coming weeks.

Please note that any form of delays or unforeseen issues may push the launch of Chow420 Certified to the first/second week of August 2021


Why did we pick Binance Smart Chain?

BSC has adopted interesting changes to try and improve performance and efficiency in comparison with Ethereum. The Proof of Staked Authority (PoSA) consensus mechanism has made it possible for users to enjoy cheaper and faster blockchain transactions, which will reduce overhead costs for all stakeholders on Chow420.



Over 100k Raised in 10 days.






Our ChowPods are now ADA-compliant and have entered the last stages of production (Images)

What is ADA compliance and why is it important?

 

The Federal ADA regulations were enacted in 2012 and apply to public entities, which include any federal, state or local government, and to private entities that offer public accommodations. If a vending operator provides several banks of machines at one location, at least one of each vending machine type — snack, food, beverage, or coffee — must be ADA-compliant.


The Federal ADA regulations are aimed to make vending machines more accessible to people with disabilities and the prominent vending industry association, the National Automatic Merchandising Association (NAMA), strongly supports the goals of the ADA.


ADA guidelines went in effect March 15, 2012 and are applicable to:

• Public entities such as state or local government and any of its departments, agencies or instrumentalities

• Private entities that operate public accommodations such as retail, hotels, hospitals, recreational facilities and schools

• Operating parts such as the coin/bill acceptor and product delivery box must be no higher than 48” and no less than 15” from the floor

• One of each type of vending machine must comply

• Courts may award monetary damages and impose penalties of up to $55,000 for a first violation

Chow420 is back on StartEngine

4 months ago


To support the expansion of our revised operations schedule, which includes the introduction of the Chow420 Certified Cannabis Blockchain Network and the first phase of our automated dispensary launch program, we are back on StartEngine yet again. We appreciate your continued support and are looking forward to your participation.


Why Invest?

Over the past year, the Chow420 team has completed the development of a functioning e-commerce sales platform, the acquisition of our contactless automated dispensaries and partnered with Simon Malls and PREIT Malls for retail space across 7 locations (First Phase: 4 states). With the current development of the Chow420 certified blockchain network (July 2021), our platform will be able to erase the opacity around product labeling, lab result manipulation, and legal non-compliance. We are arguably the only full-service legally compliant CBD retail platform poised to take a leadership position in the industry with the completion of our current expansion (Physical and Online).


Multi-Store deal with Simon Malls and PREIT Malls

As uncertainty associated with the pandemic dissipates, the Chow420 team has decided to launch the first phase of our automated dispensary machine program. Implementing our multi-platform sales point model to take advantage of gaps in CBD retail, our plan is to have achieved the placement of 30 machines by the end of 2022.


Locations of our machines for the first phase of our automated dispensary launch (August 2021) are:

  1. Mall at Prince George - Hyattsville, MD
  2. Cumberland Mall - Vineland, NJ
  3. Patrick Henry Mall - New Port News, VA* (Possible Change)
  4. Philadelphia Mills Mall - Philadelphia, PA
  5. Quakerbridge Mall -  Lawrenceville, NJ
  6. St Charles Towne Center - Waldorf, MD
  7. Leesburg Premium Outlets - Leesburg, VA
