Cura Partners, Inc. Enters European Market with Plata Wellness to Distribute Select CBD Brand
MAYFAIR, London–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Cura Partners, Inc., one of the largest cannabis and hemp-based CBD consumer products companies in the world, is officially entering the European market (EU) through a distribution agreement with Plata Wellness.
The agreement allows Cura’s Select CBD products to be available direct to consumers in legal markets across Europe via the website www.selectcbd.eu. Cura has appointed Plata Wellness Limited (Plata) to assist with its entry into the EU. In addition to Plata’s role as Cura’s inaugural overseas distributor, Plata is also providing a number of other services including order fulfilment, payment processing, and in the future, licensing and manufacturing. This partnership begins with the introductions of Select’s CBD disposable vaporizer cartridges but will, over time, add other legal consumer products including tinctures, gel caps and muscle rubs.
“Cura’s decision to move into Europe is in direct alignment with the company’s mission to be the leading provider of cannabis oil to consumers and brands in legal U.S. and international markets,” said President and Chief Executive Officer Cameron Forni. “I’m proud of the team that made this possible, and look forward to partnering with Plata Wellness to get the Select CBD brand into the hands of consumers across Europe.”
Europe is home to more than 741 million people, more than double the combined population of the United States and Canada. When trying to extrapolate these numbers to account for the potential demand in Europe’s much larger population, there is a crystal-clear reason why established cannabis companies in the United States are now turning their attention to Europe.
“We are delighted to have partnered with Cura, the market leading company in this sector. We are excited to work together to bring the Select brand to prominence in Europe and to supply consumers with these award-winning products,” said Jon Robson, Managing Director at Plata Wellness Limited.
Consumers in the United Kingdom can purchase Select CBD Blends vape pens online at www.selectcbd.eu with additional products coming soon.
