Leaders in the cannabis industry are bracing themselves for what could be another big year for the miracle compound cannabidiol (CBD) and products derived from it. Those who are into the research and development of the cannabis compound are not only pushing for a healthier lifestyle through CBD but also show a willingness to help solve social issues through charity drives and donations.

Elixinol’s donation option

One company leading a social movement for CBD industries is Elixinol. The company offers fine hemp products which include CBD oils, tinctures, and balms.

As one of the top companies offering CBD products, Elixinol is able to get customers on a regular basis and uses this stream of income to help out charities and organizations like AutismOne, Realm of Caring, The Cancer Cure Foundation, and several others.

Customers of Elixinol can donate five percent of the money they spend on a purchase to a partner organization of their choice. By providing customers with the freedom to choose the charity they want to help out, Elixinol is able to encourage its customers into playing a bigger part in their vision to help support charities, non-profit organizations, and other causes.

What Elixinol is doing is truly remarkable. As the demand for CBD continues to grow, it goes without saying that the distributor’s cause-driven business structure will be able to provide more donations for the charities it partners with.

This is a clear step towards progress for the CBD industry and companies willing to take part in helping solve social issues from across the globe.

PotNetwork’s partnership with XPO2 kickstarted with charity drive in Manila

In a recent press release, PotNetwork Holding, Inc. (OTCMKTS: POTN) announced that Diamond CBD has signed a global affinity marketing agreement with Exponential, Inc.

The new affinity marketing agreement will allow Diamond CBD to distribute their top products to XPO2’s long-list of retailing partners which include big names such as Walmart, eBay, and Macy’s.

Shortly after the announcement of the new milestone for the CBD distributor, it was then announced in a separate press release, that Diamond CBD has just co-sponsored its first charity drive with the help of XPO2.

The charity drive targeted more than a hundred at-risk youth and children in Manila, Philippines. With the help of Diamond CBD, the charity drive was able to donate hundreds of food items and other basic necessities. This is just the first in a series of planned charity events in Southeast Asia and Diamond CBD looks to be a part of these drives as well.

Through its partnership with XPO2, Diamond CBD is not only able to reach the shelves of mainstream retailers, it is also able to extend a helping hand to those in need in poor areas in Southeast Asia. As Diamond CBD, Elixinol, and other CBD companies continue to flourish in their sales, the amount they can give back to the nonprofit sector and worthy causes around the world is going to grow as well.

These two companies are primary examples of the CBD industry’s progressive growth and hopefully, they will inspire other industry leaders to take part in supporting charities and foundations.

The recently concluded National Cannabis Industry Association’s Seed to Sale Show in Denver, reveals just how interested industry leaders are to incorporate social responsibility, says The Cannabist. Laura Day Rivero; Operation Manager at Yerba Buena, says the cannabis industry will be able to redefine what being a business really should be like through corporate social responsibility.

As the global cannabis industry is still maturing, companies that are deep into CBD production have the chance to create a better image for themselves and the industry as a whole, through charitable work.
