Edge by Ascential, a leading provider of accurate and actionable ecommerce data, insights and advisory solution for global brands and retailers, has published the latest figures obtained from Amazon.com about the 2018 Holiday Shopping Season sales., According to report, the top-selling categories during the Black Friday/Cyber Monday Weekend, are toys, home furniture, digital cameras and floor care. Strategic timing has played a major part in the success for some brands. In 2018, seasonal promotions for home furnishing began well before Black Friday, beginning in October and early November. This pre-Black Friday promotion is a smart move on the part of furniture manufacturers, since consumers traditionally associate Cyber 5 with electronics and toys to prevent their products from getting buried below the avalanche of tech and toy promotions, furniture brands gave themselves a boost in sales and search rank ahead of time.

Some of last year’s top performing items have proven to be popular gift choices again this year. “The real value of the Cyber 5 weekend is not its proven ability to break records year after year but its role as a launching pad for the holiday shopping season,” explains Danny Silverman, CMO at Edge by Ascential. “Amazon’s primary goal isn’t to break records on Cyber Monday, it’s to keep that high traffic going after Cyber Monday and maintain it through the rest of the holiday season.”

Each individual toy category sales grew by at least 30 per cent during Black Friday week compared to the pre-promo weekly average and grew again by 50 per cent during Cyber Monday week. The Toys product group brought in more than twice as much in sales as the next largest product group (Home Furniture) during the Black Friday/Cyber Monday period.

“In the digital marketplace, a strong start should always be a brand’s first priority. An above-average performance causes a product to attract more traffic and sales, while a below-average performance can cause a product to quickly disappear under a pile of competitors,” adds Silverman. “This is especially true during the critical holiday shopping season. A product that stands out on Black Friday is very likely to be under the nation’s trees on Christmas morning, while a product that has a weak Cyber 5 weekend.

The Unscented Company also stated, smells, fragrances, essential oils, flower smells, or fruit smells are nice and good. I share this vision. Our senses are opened with the scents. However, personally, I am glad that there are more companies that are producing products without fragrances or scents. I am not a fan of smells. In the past years, I’ve used more organic products and natural, products, that I realized at a moment, that for me some products’ had too strong smells or my senses are different, now. Not to mention, that I have pets in my home, who, especially cats are really sensitive to fragrances, even if they are natural, some of them can even be harmful for them. I also started to use more fragrance-free products. The truth is I’ve seen this company’s website and I am delighted about the products. Those fragrance-free products are really great, and I think they are healthier as well. They use plant-based and biodegradable products, without testing on animals.

If I am delighted about those products, and as we can see, others like big names from the Film Industry, like Gwyneth Paltrow, too. She owns a company, which has also an online shop. Gwyneth’s goop company and her vision will probably suit well to this environmentally friendly company. At goof you can find and shop so many products, starting from beauty products, to food and recipes, lifestyle advises, and it is involved in wellness, travel, and spirituality as well. You can find detox ayurvedic products or sustainability starter kit for kids. The website clearly has made a decision to support sustainability, natural and plant-based products, advices for working women and interesting recipes.

I admit that, till now, I’ve been never heard about these two companies and their websites, and I am pleased to write about them, as I find it really amazing. Also, goof has an extraordinary openness to more niches and you can find, as a woman, everything you’d like to know, to buy, or to make some changes in your lifestyle and daily habits.

The Unscented Company have prevented through the years thousands of plastic bottles from entering into the circulation and markets. So this deal will help people who are shopping online from such websites like a goof to change their habits and to live more environmentally friendly.

I am involved in health, nutrition, and natural therapies. Not just as hobbies, but also I’ve studied throughout my previous life and used from more than 10 years natural health prevention products, and I agree this is the solution for long term health stability and prevention without harming.

I have a special affinity for natural products and I really have big respect for those companies who are involved in this or invested in this. There is a need and nowadays scientists and doctors through their studies are cropping up with statements on alternative therapies and natural remedies side.

Coping with other industries with strong chemical medicines it wasn’t an easy start, nor for people’s mindset.

Such companies like Green Growth Brands, with huge involvement in botanical and cannabis manufacturing, having a distinguished expert team behind and has made another step.

They have entered my favorite state in the USA, Arizona, dealing and making a definitive agreement with ZLJT LLC & Arizona Natural Pain Solutions Inc., which hold license, and they opened their cannabis dispensary, called “Desert Rose”, which is entirely involved in natural pain and medical marijuana license and products for those in need.

With this agreement, Green Growth Brands’ team was impressed by the quality of the operations, and also a dedicated team behind Desert Rose. Their products are safe and have pure quality. They also have an education center for first-time patients. They also own some type of concentrates like Butane hash oil (BHO), CO2 oil, Tinctures – The result of using alcohol to extract the active cannabinoids, creating a liquid that after that can be taken simply orally, Kief – the oldest basic type of concentrate, Hash – made from compressed Kief.

Their Cannabis Topicals are medical marijuana oils, creams, which are applied to relieve pain and discomfort. Great help to many, not to mention the elderly people.

Green Growth Brands serves a district market, they also help growing communities with a happy and active lifestyle in nature, so their interests are not far from those, who applied these in their companies.

As having an intent becoming an American Leading Company, they announce previously also the acquisition of Just Healthy LLC, which was completed at the end of January by holding a certificate for registered marijuana dispensary, cultivation, and processing site in Massachusetts.

Regarding this acquisition, the Company has elected to exercise an option to purchase land in the Northampton, in  Massachusetts area for a total purchase price of USD$700,000 (CAD$923,440).

American Hemp Industry Leader in Medicine City

Betty Tűndik

As we’ve mentioned in some previous articles and press releases on our website, we cannot agree more on that Hemp and Cannabis industry is evolving. Local companies announce one after the other their expansions not just as being global and international, not just in vertical markets, but also in horizontal niches, involving in more industries with the same product.

Health and medicine are considered important nowadays for many people. We can say, today is more significant, than ever. Of course money is always involved in businesses, as a huge money-making potential, but in my opinion, it is important what products are involved in the selling procedures, or in what the companies are investing.

For example, Folium Biosciences is a hemp development, extraction, and research global company. They have a clinical science base. As we see besides their Public Health and Environment Certificate, they own Kosher, GMP, NO GMO, Halal Certification, and third-party tested 0.0% THC component, with unique phytocannabinoid-rich hemp oil.

They are involved in Bulk Products, White Label Products, Cosmeceuticals and very interesting for me, Animal Health products. Medical marijuana use in the veterinary community has started to be more vital and researches are made to help animals as well with CBD products.

There are also evidences that in cosmetics the skin works really good and not just internally, but in external use of CBD based products have a big impact on skin’s health. Many skin problems can be treated, not to mention the big issues with psoriasis, which till now was a “cul-de-sac” for many.

This huge American Hemp manufacturer and distributor has expanded in Medicine Hat, Canada.

This city’s motto is quite reasonable for expansions and opportunities, and community strategies, as it is called “a community of choice”.
