At Chow420, we believe we’ve built what could be the backbone of the CBD industry and all federally legal cannabis products. We believe we have successfully placed ourselves as the perfect midpoint service provider in an emerging billion-dollar market by emphasizing quality and accessibility as market requirements. Chow420 enhances service delivery by ensuring customers get only the purest and safest CBD/Cannabis products through a carefully developed product verification process that provides traceability on product content, genetics, ingredients, origin, impurity testing results, method of production and other important areas. In the absence of active FDA regulation, our service plays a major function in promoting consumer safety and trust in an otherwise disorderly space.
In the over-saturated and un-regulated CBD industry, quality brands are being drowned out. The market is characterized by aggressive marketing with an emphasis on quantity over quality. As a result, good quality products are trapped in spaces where they have to compete with lower quality offerings. A 2017 study found that over 70% of products in the market are mislabeled, state laws also change every day, and customers are put at risk when brands make false health claims. Consequently, in a survey carried out by SingleCare, over 22% of the buying public expressed distrust of CBD products. The need for a service offering a central source of truth and compliance for the CBD market is as urgent as ever.
Chow420 operates a framework for the buying and selling of vetted CBD products . At Chow, we've built an ecosystem anchored on an efficient blockchain-powered product verification system. This system empowers customers with the ability to buy legally compliant products which have been vetted for conformity with labeling and the appropriateness of their ingredients and production methods. On the seller-side, retailers utilize our adaptable eCommerce platform to scale their businesses online. They can seamlessly advertise and sell through our online platform and IoT dispensaries. And because our service comes 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 which is made up of our automated dispensaries and online marketplace, we believe that we are in a good position to redesign the operational paradigm of CBD brands. We are positioned to leverage on our automated dispensary offering to robustly extend CBD accessibility to the customer, while our online marketplace serves as the engine for our eCommerce coverage.
According to our research, there is currently no dominant cross-platform retailer in the CBD market. This 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 brands with a pliable and decentralized platform for commerce. The differentiating quality we possess is the inclusion of both online and offline platforms under an innovative vetting arrangement.

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.

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 have a great team that has spent the last 5 years conducting research and development on the CBD market. The Chow420 mission is to provide the cannabis industry with a robust offering that uses a blockchain basis to erase the opacity around product labeling, lab result manipulation, and legal non-compliance.

With Regulation A+, a non-accredited investor can only invest a maximum of 10% of their annual income or 10% of their net worth per year, whichever is greater. There are no restrictions for accredited investors.
With Regulation Crowdfunding, non-accredited investors with an annual income or net worth less than $124,000, are limited to invest a maximum of 5% of the greater of those two amounts. For those with an annual income and net worth greater than $124,000, he/she is limited to investing 10% of the greater of the two amounts.
At the close of an offering, all investors whose funds have “cleared” by this time will be included in the disbursement. At this time, each investor will receive an email from StartEngine with their Countersigned Subscription Agreement, which will serve as their proof of purchase moving forward.
Please keep in mind that a company can conduct a series of “closes” or withdrawals of funds throughout the duration of the campaign. If you are included in that withdrawal period, you will be emailed your countersigned subscription agreement and proof of purchase immediately following that withdrawal.
StartEngine assists companies in raising capital, and once the offering is closed, we are no longer involved with whether the company chooses to list shares on a secondary market, or what occurs thereafter. Therefore, StartEngine has no control or insight into your investment after the close of the live offering. In addition, we are not permitted to provide financial advice. You may want to contact a financial professional to discuss possible investment outcomes.
For Regulation Crowdfunding, investors are able to cancel their investment at any point throughout the campaign up until 48 hours before the closing of the offering. Note: If the company does a rolling close, they will post an update to their current investors, giving them the opportunity to cancel during this timeframe. If you do not cancel within this 5-day timeframe, your funds will be invested in the company, and you will no longer be able to cancel the investment. If your funds show as ‘Invested’ on your account dashboard, your investment can no longer be canceled.
For Regulation A+, StartEngine allows for a four-hour cancelation period. Once the four-hour window has passed, it is up to each company to set their own cancelation policy. You may find the company’s cancelation policy in the company’s offering circular.
Once your investment is canceled, there is a 10-day clearing period (from the date your investment was submitted). After your funds have cleared the bank, you will receive your refund within 10 business days.
Refunds that are made through ACH payments can take up to 10 business days to clear. Unfortunately, we are at the mercy of the bank, but we will do everything we can to get you your refund as soon as possible. However, every investment needs to go through the clearing process in order to get sent back to the account associated with the investment.
Both Title III (Regulation Crowdfunding) and Title IV (Reg A+) help entrepreneurs crowdfund capital investments from unaccredited and accredited investors. The differences between these regulations are related to the investor limitations, the differing amounts of money companies are permitted to raise, and differing disclosure and filing requirements.
