REASONS TO INVEST

Reasons Icon

CBD sales are predicted to reach $20B by 2024, and the overall U.S cannabis industry could pump nearly $80 billion annually by 2022.

Reasons Icon

First-mover advantage and strategic market position in a multi billion-dollar market. Patent-Pending blockchain product verification and certification process which ensures that customers get only the purest and safest CBD/Cannabis products.

Reasons Icon

Through smart partnerships, we’ve been able to achieve zero contact automated dispensaries and have signed an expansion deal to take us from 7 stores across 4 states to 14 stores across 5 states by April 2022. Our plan is to be the biggest retailer by network in the industry through the power of automated dispensaries.

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 enforcing quality in the market and ensuring customers get only the purest and safest CBD/Cannabis products through our product verification process that provides traceability of product content, genetics, ingredients, origin, impurity testing results, method of production and moreIn the absence of active FDA regulation, our service plays a major function in enforcing consumer safety and promoting trust in an otherwise disorderly space.


We believe that our product verification will set the foundation for transparency in the restricted cannabis market. This will allow us to provide the federally legal cannabis industry with key online services in the future such as:



  1. Banking: Verification and traceability to ensure that financial institutions only support legal and safe transactions.
  2. Insurance: Using product verification and traceability to reduce the risk of liability for insurance companies.
  3. Advertisement:  Verification and traceability to ensure that only legally compliant and safe products are promoted online.
  4. Logistics and Shipping: Leveraging Chow420's verification and traceability features to ensure that only legally compliant and safe products are shipped across state lines.



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 also 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. 



The Solution


A Reliable Ecosystem for CBD and Hemp Cannabis 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.

Our Traction


A Revolutionary Product and Strong Partnerships

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

  • Launched automated stores across 4 states in partnership with SIMON and PREIT malls.



  • Built Chow420's patent-pending cannabis blockchain certification process 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. 




  • Partnered with a manufacturer to produce 5 CBD brands internally that are all available on Chow420.com and in ChowPods (Cibigo, 411, Fortune, Moon, Endless Feelings).  Now available on Chow420.com.
  • Successfully built an insightful data-driven way for customers to see the health benefits of products without breaking FDA rules and guidelines.



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 - We charge sellers a fee to get their products to be Chow420 Certified.

  • Chow ADS:  Chow Ads are currently available on Chow420.com for retailers for free. The Chow video ads is an intuitive framework within our ecosystem that allows companies to promote products to customers using videos. 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 2023) for now and focus on the core aspects of our business; ChowPods, Chow Stores, and Chow420.com.

What We Do


We Vet and Sell High-Quality Products

We vet products on the blockchain through smart contracts with manufacturers and cannabis labs to ensure that our customers get what we believe to be only the purest and safest 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 federally legal cannabis 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 Chow420 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 to achieve arguably a web 3.0 for the cannabis sector.

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 market 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 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 ecosystem allows us to automate compliance in real-time, 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. 

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 are currently in mall spaces across the northeast.

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.


 
The zero-contact ChowPod at the Cumberland Mall - Vineland, NJ

Above is a screenshot that shows the ChowPod zero-contact QR code. Customers can now scan and shop from the ChowPod with their Smartphones.


5. Data-Driven Review System

We use data to solve the confusion around cannabis 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 5 CBD brands i.e Cibigo, Moon, 411, Fortune, 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, $20 when they invite loved ones to Chow420, signup bonuses and more!.

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.

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.
