Naturally Splendid NATERA(tm) CBD Products Granted Approval in Japanese Market with First Step Japan


VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA / TheNewswire / October 16, 2017 - Naturally Splendid Enterprises Ltd. ("Naturally Splendid") or (“NSE”) or (“The Company”) (FRANKFURT:50N) (TSX VENTURE:NSP) (OTC:NSPDF) is pleased to announce the Japenese government has approved the Company’s  Natera®CBD product line for distribution in Japan.

Naturally Splendid is very pleased to announce it has received approval from the Japanese regulatory bodies for two of its CBD capsule products; full spectrum hemp oil NATERA CBD caps and NATERA CBD Ultra Caps. NSE’s Natera®CBD prodcuts have been granted approval under the food supplement category. Naturally Splendid plans to immediately begin selling/marketing both products in Japan with its partner First Step Japan (“FSJ”).

With over 127 million consumers in Japan it is the third largest ecomony on the planet and well educated in the Canabidiol (CBD) world of products.

As mentioned in a previous news release the Company has plans to launch two (2) products to Japan via an ecommerce platform using First Step Japan as our Importers/Distributors.

FSJ is a Japan based market entry and consulting firm that serves a variety of businesses and non-governmental organizations. They guide clients to achieve their sales goals and to make successful and lasting entries into the Japanese market. The principals of FSJ have a combined 30 years experience in Japan. They are uniquely equipped to navigate the local business environment and generate results for their clients. Leveraging an extensive network of associates covering all angles of business operations, FSJ offers a single-entry point to the market.


As CEO Dave Eto comments, “FSJ and NSE have been diligently working with the Japanese government for the past six months to reach this major accomplishment.  While a very lucrative market, Japan’s regulatory regime is a barrier to entry for others who don’t have high quality, experienced importers nor the perseverance to endure the difficult process .  We are now preparing our first orders of CBD capsules for the Japanese market to be sold on ecommerce platforms, Amazon and Rakuten Japan as a food supplement.  We are all very excited with this opportunity and optimistic that the Japanese consumer will love our products.”


“Once we have feedback on the CBD capsules, we will pursue more products for Japan.  We anticipate the same stringent protocols from Japanese regulators  but with our experience, we aim to hasten certain aspects of the process.”
