PORTLAND, Ore.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--For Cura, 2018 is a year dedicated to giving back, and this April it begins with an initiative benefitting the non-profit organization Realm of Caring (RoC). Ten percent of all sales on SelectCBD.com, Cura’s hemp-derived CBD e-commerce site, will directly benefit Realm of Caring. RoC is an organization that aims to improve lives through research, education and advocacy around cannabis and hemp products.
The movement toward broad acceptance, access, and normalization of cannabis can only be achieved with critical stakeholders on board. For that reason, Cura is especially excited about RoC’s mission to advocate and spread educational information about cannabis – along with often misunderstood details about the endocannabinoid system – to health care professionals as well as families with life limiting diagnoses across the country. Purchases made through SelectCBD.com will directly impact RoC’s ability to offer financial assistance to families across the U.S.
“Every day we hear from veterans, parents and people living with severe and chronic diseases who believe in our products,” says Cura Co-Founder and President Cameron Forni. “We know that people all over the country are using CBD to enhance their lives, and the work that Realm of Caring is doing to progress cannabis education forward is a critical component to help safely get cannabis and hemp into the hands of people who need it.”
Select CBD is Cura’s 100 percent hemp-derived cannabidiol brand, with products that combine natural essential oils and herbs along with the benefits of CBD. On SelectCBD.com, consumers can purchase CBD Blends, which are vape pens in flavors including Lavender, Cinnamon, (Relax) Grapefruit, Lemon, (Revive) Spearmint and Peppermint (Focus). Select CBD Drops are the newest addition to the product portfolio, and can be purchased in an unflavored option, along with three great-tasting flavors including Lavender, Lemon-Ginger and Peppermint.
“Contributing to our community has always been a vital element of what we do here at Cura,” says Cura CEO Nitin Khanna. “Since 2015 we have contributed to organizations including Our Giving Table, Weed for Warriors, the New Federalism Fund and the Oregon Cannabis Association. This initiative with Realm of Caring presents the first time that we’re directly working with our online customers to give back to an important cause, and it is one of many initiatives that we’re excited to roll out throughout 2018.”
With offices in Oregon, California and Nevada, Cura is the largest cannabis company in Oregon and California. Its brand Select Oil – considered a sister company to Select CBD – is the best-selling cannabis brand on the West Coast. Cura recognizes the responsibility that it has in demonstrating the positive contributions that cannabis can have on the communities it serves.
“We are always thankful for socially minded businesses who want to give back to the community that they serve. It is the gift of time to many families. We intend to use the funds raised during the month of April for our Realm Cares™ recipients. This is a monthly grant given to families who may need a little extra financial help due to being on a therapy that their insurance does not cover. We have given over $200,000 directly back to families through this program,” says Heather Jackson, CEO of the Realm of Caring.
Anyone in the U.S. can contribute to the cause by purchasing Select CBD products online at: www.SelectCBD.com.
