What is Nano Water?

Nano Water provides you with the ultimate in nutrition by directly feeding your cells. Through advanced physics and chemistry, we have taken ion-sized nutrients (the size that can move through cells’ membranes) and cleverly encased it with water molecules – forming a small, flexible, ionic-size water cluster. This makes our product nearly instantly bio-available by powering up your cells with a greater nutritional delivery system.

Nanomaterials are tiny particles measured in nanometers, or billionths of a meter. Due to their incredibly small size, nanoparticles ingested in food are fundamentally different and can move throughout the body and through cell structures in advanced ways. Experts on nanotechnology are virtually unanimous that nanoscale materials have the potential for health effects that are uniquely different from the same substances comprised of larger-sized molecules. Engineered nanomaterials are already being added to conventional foods, fruit and vegetable coatings, food packaging materials, supplements and cosmetics. Titanium dioxide, for example, is used to increase the whiteness of milk, yogurt and dairy substitutes. Nanomaterials are also used in chocolate, salad dressings, cereal, pasta and other foods.

Safe and Natural Ingredients

CBD Naturals products are made from natural ingredients generally recognized as being safe and providing nutritive assistance to the body. Every person is different in their physiology and how they will utilize and respond to any food or nutrient. The ingredients of these are recognized at a biologically cellular level as either an essential nutrient or a precursor component – providing what a cell uses to operate efficiently. No federal agency regulates the use of nanomaterials in food, and there is no requirement to list them on product labels.

  • Provides Anti-Oxidants at a cellular level

  • Provides a Vitamin and Mineral boost directly into your cells

  • Provides Incredible Cellular Hydration and Energy

  • Supports your own immune system

Maximized Absorption of Nutrients

All ingredients in the CBD Naturals products are naturally regulated by the body. Excess nutrition will sloughed off. Necessary nutrition finds its way to needy cells.This process makes the nutrients super absorbable at the cellular level and the cutting edge approach in the market place. In short, we have created a new transport system that gets healthy nutrients to where they need to be in order to have the most dramatic and positive effect. CBD Naturals is dedicated to providing the most essential of cellular nutrients in the most bioavailable form available! The unique attributes of our products represents a new level of nutritional access never before possible. Our desire is that everyone can benefit from these products and have access and ability to improve their health by first feeding their cells.
Bottled water is poised to become the king of beverages in the United States. It seems that Americans love their bottled water. According to data recently released by Beverage Marketing Inc., the amount of bottled water sold rose 7.9 percent in 2015. That’s on top of a 7 percent increase in 2014.
Americans now drink astonishing amounts of bottled water: In 2015, we bought the equivalent of 1.7 billion half-liter bottles of water every week. That’s more than five bottles of water for every man, woman, and child in the country every single week. A typical family of four is going through one of those shrink-wrapped 24-packs of bottled water each week.

Bottled water sales in 2015 rose almost three times faster than the whole market for “liquid refreshment,” and bottled water rose even as sales of carbonated soda fell 1.5 percent, to the lowest level per person since 1985.

The flip in consumption habits between carbonated soda and bottled water just since 2000 has been dramatic.

In 2000, each American was drinking 53.7 gallons of carbonated soda a year, equal to 573 12-ounce cans a year, 11 a week. Soda consumption in 2015 was down to 38.9 gallons per person.

In contrast, from 2000 to 2015, bottled water consumption more than doubled, from 16.7 gallons a person to 36.4 gallons.
If bottled water sales continue to grow close to what they have the last two years, and carbonated soda sales fall just another one percent, 2016 will be the year that Americans buy more bottled water than packaged soda.

Laguna Announces Letter Of Intent with Carlsbad Naturals CBD Bottled Water Company to Acquire 60% Equity Interest and Exclusive Licenses in a Transaction Valued at $1.8 MM USD

bottle2KELOWNA, BC – October 11, 2016 – Laguna Blends Inc. (CSE: LAG) (OTC: LAGBF) (Frankfurt: LB6A.F) (the “Company” or “Laguna, is pleased to announce that it has signed a letter of intent (the “LOI”) with Carlsbad Naturals (“Carlsbad”) whereby Laguna and Carlsbad plan to enter into an equity acquisition and exclusive licence agreement (“Equity and License Agreement”) for the purpose of pursuing mutually beneficial business opportunities in the Cannabidiol (CBD) bottled water Industry and CBD ingestible products Industry (the “Proposed Transaction”).

The hemp cannabinoid innovator, Isodiol, sources nano-amplified hemp CBD to manufacturers to create unique finished products. Isodiol is a shareholder in Carlsbad.

“We are proud to announce the alignment of Laguna Blends and Carlsbad Naturals,” states Jared Berry, co-Founder of Carlsbad Naturals.  “Laguna Blends’ extensive client base and distribution network will fulfill the growing demand for hemp CBD products worldwide.”

Mr. Stuart Gray, Laguna’s CEO said “With the growing awareness and market demand of CBD worldwide Laguna is positioning itself to be a market leader in the sale of CBD bottled water. In addition to the current sales growth of Carlsbad, Laguna can generate CBD water sales through its existing affiliates in the USA and Canada.  Laguna currently is in discussions internationally with wholesale distributors regarding Carlsbad white label opportunities.”

Mr. Ray Grimm, Laguna’s President stated, “The partnership with Carlsbad, firmly solidifies Laguna as a unique player in the crowded multibillion dollar bottled water industry.

“Carlsbad Naturals’ all-natural hemp CBD nano-amplified water has been a game changer for the people who frequent our location,” states Larry Banegas, founder of the Kuseyaay Wellness Center on the Barona reservation.  “Since the beginning of time, indigenous people have always been in tune with nature and sought benefits from plant botanicals.  With today’s natural retail products, however, consistency can be difficult to achieve.  The formulators of Carlsbad Naturals’ water have achieved consistency and quality at the highest level.  It doesn’t get more natural than this.  Visitors to our facility have come to rely on an ample supply of this unique bottled water.”

Laguna and Carlsbad anticipate finalizing the definitive Agreement by Nov 10, 2016.

Bottled water is poised to become the king of beverages in the United States. It seems that Americans love their bottled water. According to data recently released by Beverage Marketing Inc., the amount of bottled water sold rose 7.9 percent in 2015. That’s on top of a 7 percent increase in 2014.

Americans now drink astonishing amounts of bottled water: In 2015, we bought the equivalent of 1.7 billion half-liter bottles of water every week. That’s more than five bottles of water for every man, woman, and child in the country every single week. A typical family of four is going through one of those shrink-wrapped 24-packs of bottled water each week.

Bottled water sales in 2015 rose almost three times faster than the whole market for “liquid refreshment,” and bottled water rose even as sales of carbonated soda fell 1.5 percent, to the lowest level per person since 1985.

The flip in consumption habits between carbonated soda and bottled water just since 2000 has been dramatic.

In 2000, each American was drinking 53.7 gallons of carbonated soda a year, equal to 573 12-ounce cans a year, 11 a week. Soda consumption in 2015 was down to 38.9 gallons per person.

In contrast, from 2000 to 2015, bottled water consumption more than doubled, from 16.7 gallons a person to 36.4 gallons.

If bottled water sales continue to grow close to what they have the last two years, and carbonated soda sales fall just another one percent, 2016 will be the year that Americans buy more bottled water than packaged soda.
