De gedreven distribiteur MYCAN heeft deze 4 dagen met 85 intensieve werkuren benut om het unieke concept van de met CBD vlokken gevulde pouches aan meer dan 1.800 bezoekers persoonlijk uit te leggen.

Gedurende de beurs zijn er gratis samples uitgedeeld van de drie verschillende beschikbare smaken van de CBD pouches. Dit werd gedaan om het gebruik te stimuleren en bovendien om een gedegen uitleg te geven en consumenten feedback te verkrijgen. Dit heeft erin geresulteerd dat ruim 50% van de consumenten enthousiast terugkwamen bij de stand. Zij waren erg enthousiast, maar bovenal onder de indruk van de snelle werking. Van de drie beschikbare smaken; Natural Mint, Tangy Citrus en American Spice, was de Tangy Citrus onmisbaar de favoriete smaak onder de consumenten. Bovendien heeft de beurs ervoor gezorgd dat er een aantal enthousiaste testers tot aankoop overgingen. Tevens zijn er in de week na de beurs een aantal bestellingen geweest via BOL.com. Enthousiaste consumenten die binnen 48 uur hen product in huis hadden.

De Gezondheidsbeurs was derhalve een groot succes voor MYCAN BV en Canadips Europe. Naast consumenten feedback heeft de beurs gezorgd voor wederverkopers en is het voor de distribiteur duidelijk geworden welke strategie zij moeten volgen en welke marktkanalen zij kunnen aanboren.

Cannadips CBD pouches zijn afkomstig uit een breed spectrum hennep CBD, volledig plantaardig en zijn gemaakt van uitsluitend natuurlijke ingrediënten. De pouches bevatten geen THC. Door het gebruik van een speciaal ontworpen gedroogde emulsie technologie en het verwerken van vlokken, werken de CBD pouches zeer snel. Zij kunnen discreet in de mond aangebracht worden. Elk blikje bevat 15 pouches met ieder 10 mg CBD per stuk.
