LONDON, March 10, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Alphagreen Group, which owns Europe's largest consumer marketplace for legally certified cannabis (CBD, cannabidiol) products Alphagreen.io, has today secured £500k in its first equity funding round. Several tech angel investors took part in the funding round alongside the cannabis-focused investment company ENEXIS AB, which has backed several cannabis industry businesses including NOBL, Dragonfly Biosciences and Emmac Life Sciences.
Established in 2019, the Alphagreen marketplace is owned and run by Alphagreen Group from their London headquarters. The Group also owns Alphagreen Med which is set to become a licensed manufacturer and distributor of medical cannabis products to pharmacies in Germany, the largest medical cannabis market in Europe.

We are building Europe's leading platform for quality CBD products and medical cannabis. This platform will not only benefit consumers but also businesses, such as pharmacies, seeking access to medical cannabis products.
"Securing this funding is testament to the strength of our tech proposition and people. We are the only CBD business who has tech focused co-founders and a pharmacist as a co-founder. Together, we will challenge the mainstream market and our commitment to bring naturally grown, certified and premium CBD products to everyone."

We believe that their unique combination of private equity, technology and pharmacist professionals creates an attractive investment proposition. We see this space in its early stages and are very excited about the future product roadmap and international expansion of Alphagreen."
