Kannaway Austria offers CBD products to supplement a healthy diet and lifestyle. This is the Kannaway experience.

How Kannaway Austria started

Kannaway was founded in 2014 in the United States with the European head office opening in 2018. The company was created on the principle of bringing the safest and highest-quality cannabis-based – or cannabidiol (CBD), the non-psychoactive cannabinoid – product innovations to market.

Cannabis has been widely misunderstood for some time. Kannaway aims to dispel the old myths surrounding this natural resource through education about its valuable properties and transparency about the company’s production processes. Kannaway is considered an authority in the CBD industry, with its company executives having contributed insights to media outlets, such as Forbes and FOX Business, about CBD’s legal status and the global expansion of the CBD market.

Austria was among the first European countries to open its doors to Kannaway and has since proven to be the company’s largest market – with tens of thousands of satisfied customers regularly buying Kannaway CBD products, such as Kannaway’s popular nutritional supplement, Pure Gold.

Kannaway is the first cannabis-based direct selling company to operate in Europe. Due to education being one of the company’s core principles, selling through one-to-one consumer recommendations was considered the best route to market as part of Kannaway’s goal to make CBD products become more accepted all over the world. This includes a focus on educational events and meetings that take place locally in Austria in the German language, which are organised by Kannaway’s European team.

The Kannaway experience

In addition to producing CBD products of the highest quality to promote a healthy lifestyle, Kannaway Austria offers its customers the Kannaway experience – the opportunity to break free from the traditional ‘time for money’ work environment with its tried-and-tested business model.

Aimed at those with an entrepreneurial spirit, the Kannaway Lifestyle provides a framework for customers to earn an income from the sales of products that they recommend to others and from building their own business. For example, Kannaway’s versatile food supplement, Pure Gold, is considered to be one of the products that most customers in Austria are introduced to first.

As Kannaway’s business model is based on personal experience, there is no need for ‘hard selling’. Becoming a Kannaway Brand Ambassador does not require any large investments of product inventory or carry any overheads. The entire process – from marketing and events, to product development and distribution – is taken care of by Kannaway Austria as well as Kannaway’s team at the European head office.

And Brand Ambassadors do not have to build their businesses alone. There is a huge supportive network of fellow Brand Ambassadors in Austria and all over the world who are keen to pass on their business-building tips and CBD product reviews, while Kannaway regularly shares the latest news and market information about CBD.

Is Kannaway CBD legal in Austria?

One of the areas about CBD that has caused confusion in the Austrian market is the question of whether it is legal to sell and consume CBD products in Austria. Is Kannaway CBD legal in Austria? The simple answer is yes. Contrary to inaccurate reports in the Austrian press, it is completely legal to sell and consume CBD products in Austria as long as they are labelled as a type of food and not medicine. All Kannaway CBD ingestible products are labelled as a dietary supplement, and not medicine, and are therefore in compliance with Austria’s Federal Ministry of Social Affairs, Health, Care and Consumer Protection.

The uncertainty around the legality of CBD products is completely understandable, given recent efforts by the EU to introduce standards to cannabis-based products. The massive surge in popularity of these products, with CBD being used in everything from toothpaste to beverages, prompted the EU to take action as part of a wider effort to ensure product safety. Again, this is completely understandable – and a move that is welcomed by legitimate CBD companies such as Kannaway – given the number of fake CBD products that have emerged on the market.

The EU’s Committee for Plants, Animals, Food and Feed (PAFF) revisited the permitted consumption of hemp products in the Novel Foods (NF) catalogue. In 2019, PAFF decided that hemp seeds were permitted as a food but declared hemp flowers and leaves novel – which caused confusion in the legitimate hemp foods industry and the market.

However, the NF catalogue is not a legally binding document, leaving member states free to apply their own regulations at national level. For example, Belgium permits the sale of dried CBD flowers for smoking but considers all other hemp-derived products to be novel. Ireland only permits hemp extract if it is extracted through a cold extraction process. Bulgaria passed a law in mid-2019 that opened up its marketplace to CBD oil products.

This might explain the confusion surrounding CBD products, as there does not appear to be a single market for hemp-derived products in the EU. Now it remains for legitimate CBD companies, like Kannaway, to inform and educate customers about what these developments by the EU actually mean in relation to the legality of CBD products in Austria and other European markets. To put it briefly, Kannaway Austria customers can rest assured that these developments will not affect their consumption of Kannaway CBD products or their businesses as Kannaway Brand Ambassadors.

The authorities are usually 10 steps behind what’s happening in the market, and typically use these ‘stalling’ tactics to buy themselves time so they can understand the potential of the new product, e.g. allowing member states to figure out how they could benefit from the situation from a tax standpoint etc. In the meantime, the most important takeaway from this development by the EU is that CBD products cannot be advertised as medicine. As long as CBD products are labelled as a food, they are legal to buy, sell and consume in Austria.

Kannaway reviews: Read CBD product testimonials – including Kannaway Pure Gold experiences – by professional athletes and Olympic stars about how Kannaway CBD products are helping them to achieve their fitness and lifestyle goals.

Kannaway on FOX Business: Company founder, Dr. Stuart Titus shares his thoughts on the market potential of CBD products in the USA.

Kannaway on Forbes: Kannaway’s Chief Sales Officer is interviewed about the developments of CBD sales in Bulgaria and the EU.

What is a novel food?

According to Article 3 of the NF Regulation, a novel food is a food that has not been consumed up to a significant degree by humans in the EU before 15 May 1997. However, there is much evidence to show that humans consumed hemp and related products before this date, which means that CBD products are not novel foods and are in fact a traditional ‘superfood’.

Our flagship brand (RSHO®) introduces a new line of CBD capsules that pair Blue Label CBD oil with nutritious medium-chain triglyceride (MCT) oil. These new convenient CBD gel capsules are now available in the Medical Marijuana, Inc. online store.

We’re excited to announce a new CBD oil capsule product in the Real Scientific Hemp Oil® (RSHO®) product line. RSHO® Blue Label Gel Capsules pair our decarboxylated full-spectrum CBD oil with medium-chain triglyceride (MCT) oil to naturally improve cannabinoid absorption.

Bottle of RSHO® Blue Label CBD Oil Capsules

These first-of-their-kind gel caps for the RSHO® brand offer unrivaled convenience and portability, making it quick and easy for consumers to add the natural balancing properties of CBD oil to their everyday wellness routine. RSHO® Blue Label Gel Capsules come in a 60-count glass amber bottle designed for preservation, with each individual CBD gel capsule containing 25 mg of CBD.

RSHO® Blue Label products are made with full-spectrum CBD oil that’s been decarboxylated to maximize its CBD concentration while retaining the hemp oil’s list of native vitamins, minerals, terpenes, chlorophyll, omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids, and trace cannabinoids.

Derived from wholesome coconut oil, our MCT oil is a great source of fatty acids that help CBD and other cannabinoids move efficiently through the digestive system. By enhancing absorption, MCT oil allows for more of the cannabinoids to reach the body’s systems, and faster.

RSHO® Blue Label Gel Capsules are shelf-stable and do not need to be refrigerated. This means consumers can take Blue Label Gel Capsules wherever they go so they’re always on hand when needed.

Benefits of RSHO® Blue Label Gel Capsules

Once absorbed, the CBD found in RSHO® Blue Label Gel Capsules positively influences the body’s endocannabinoid system, a major regulatory network responsible for maintaining homeostasis in a long list of functions. CBD and the other trace cannabinoids in CBD oil stimulate the endocannabinoid system by interacting with cannabinoid receptors found on cells throughout the body. A well-operating endocannabinoid system supports overall health and helps consumers feel better every day.

As a convenient source of full-spectrum CBD oil, RSHO® Blue Label Gel Capsules also have naturally occurring vitamins and minerals, proteins, fatty acids, terpenes, flavonoids, and trace cannabinoids that promote wellness.

Our full-spectrum CBD oil products from RSHO are crafted from non-GMO, certified organic hemp. A family-owned farm uses centuries of experience handed down over generations to grow our hemp naturally, using organic practices.

Get Started with RSHO® Blue Label Gel Capsules

These Blue Label Gel Capsules are the latest addition to the RSHO® line of CBD oil products. RSHO® is Medical Marijuana, Inc.’s flagship CBD oil brand. Consumers can also find our RSHO® Blue Label CBD oil in capsule form with our original RSHO® Blue Label CBD Oil Capsules, which contain calcium and a proprietary blend of powdered turmeric root and white willow bark, rather than MCT oil.

You can find RSHO® Blue Label Gel Capsules now in the Medical Marijuana, Inc. online store. Learn more about CBD and our line of CBD products by visiting our CBD oil education page.

Knowing that consumers depend on us for safe and high-quality CBD products, Medical Marijuana, Inc. sources its RSHO® full-spectrum CBD oil from Certified Organic Hemp grown naturally on a generational family-owned farm.

As you browse the full-spectrum cannabidiol (CBD) oil products available in the Medical Marijuana, Inc. online shop, you’ll likely notice a Certified Organic Hemp Seal.

We are proud that the full-spectrum CBD oil products found in our online shop are sourced from Certified Organic Hemp. Reflective of Medical Marijuana, Inc.’s commitment to producing only the highest-quality CBD products available, our superior full-spectrum CBD oil is extracted from the robust, leafy green stalks of hemp grown using organic farming standards.

This includes Real Scientific Hemp Oil® (RSHO®), the world’s leading hemp CBD oil brand. RSHO® helped introduced hemp CBD oil to the United States and is the first approved cannabis product in three Latin American countries: Brazil, Mexico, and Paraguay, as well as the U.S. territory of Puerto Rico. The entire line of full-spectrum CBD oil from RSHO® is made with Certified Organic Hemp.

Since our beginning in 2012 when we became the first company to bring hemp CBD oil products to market, our CBD oil has been made from hemp grown a generational family-owned farm in the Netherlands, one of Europe’s leading agricultural countries. This farm has received an Organic Certification from Skal Biocontrole, the control authority in Holland recognized by the European Union (EU). The Skal foundation inspects and determines farms and businesses that meet the EU’s organic farming standards.

By awarding our farm an Organic Certification, the Skal foundation certifies that the land used to grow our non-GMO has been supported with a conversion period to exclude any risks of pesticide residue and that the ongoing practices used to cultivate the land follow organic regulations.

Rather than use pesticides, herbicides, or chemical fertilizers, our veteran farmers use centuries of experience handed down over generations to produce thriving 12-foot-tall hemp plants naturally. Thanks to nutritious soil, an ideal growing microclimate, responsible farming practices, and the perfect cultivar of licensed and registered European hempseed, our Certified Organic Hemp serves as an incredible source of CBD and other unique nutrients found in our full-spectrum CBD oil.

Significance of Certified Organic Hemp

Medical Marijuana, Inc. is more dedicated than ever to providing the best CBD you can find anywhere. The Organic Certification obtained by our farm in the Netherlands gives our consumers confidence that the full-spectrum CBD oil products they receive from us are safe and high-quality.

Certified Organic Hemp is a major indicator of quality. Having our hemp officially classified as organic ensures that our plants are grown under high standards in accordance with European organic regulations and the Dutch Agricultural Quality Act.

The Organic Certification awarded by the Skal foundation confirms that our farm meets soil quality, additive, and pest and weed control standards. Since the beginning, our farmers have produced thriving plants while relying on their expertise, natural substances, and ecological farming methods.

Our Certified Organic Hemp has always been grown naturally, without the use of pesticides, herbicides or chemical fertilizers. Cultivating hemp without these chemical additives is important, as all cannabis plants are bioaccumulators and absorb the compounds and substances found in soil. Toxic pesticides and fertilizes can leak into the plant and make their way into finished CBD oil products.

The farming practices used to grow hemp is one of the most important considerations when buying CBD oil. By growing our Certified Organic Hemp naturally, without the use of chemical fertilizers, herbicides, and pesticides, our consumers can purchase and use our full-spectrum CBD oil products while being confident in their integrity and purity.

Medical Marijuana, Inc.’s Commitment to Quality

The Organic Hemp certification is only one of the ways we convey to our consumers that take the proper steps to purest and healthiest CBD products. As pioneers in the industry, we crafted many of the manufacturing and testing processes that have since become standard.

We use supercritical CO2, rather than damaging solvents, to safely extract our raw full-spectrum CBD oil and its long list of nutritious compounds. Regarded as GRAS (generally regarded as safe) by the FDA, supercritical CO2 extraction protects you, the end-user, and your entire family.

We further ensure the quality of our products with our Triple Lab Tested® standard. This three-point rigorous testing process checks for contaminants and ensures cannabinoid concentrations.

Medical Marijuana, Inc. was also one of the first companies to have CBD oil products awarded the Certified Seal from the U.S. Hemp Authority. This first-ever quality certification program conveys to our customers that our products and practices meet the organization’s stringent quality and safety standards.
