Reading Time: 4 minutes


Restorative Botanicals to Make Its Full Presence Felt at the 6th Annual NoCo Hemp Expo, the World’s Largest Gathering of Hemp Industry Professionals, March 28-30 in Denver.

On the heels of being named one of the hottest products at Natural Products Expo West, Restorative Botanicals, the leading full-spectrum hemp supplements and functional foods manufacturer, based in Boulder, Colorado, is excited to unveil new items – and a new brand – at the upcoming NoCo Hemp Expo, the world’s largest gathering of hemp industry professionals, March 28-30, in Denver.

At the 6th Annual NoCo Hemp Expo (NoCo6), Restorative Botanicals will showcase its line of full-spectrum hemp oil blends, plus its hemp-infused topical products, coffee, caramels, gummies and more. In addition, the company will debut a new brand, Urban Alchemy, featuring a line of organically grown, high potency CBD-rich hemp oil blends, vape products and related items.

“We look forward to meeting at NoCo6 with our longstanding customers, suppliers and friends who have supported the growth of Restorative Botanicals in the full spectrum hemp and natural products market,’ said Jeff Cole, Restorative Botanicals’ Director of Program Development, who will be a featured speaker on The Future of Retailing Hemp Products panel at NoCo6 on Friday, March 29. “We heard from many independent retailers at Expo West that their partnership with and the support they receive from Restorative Botanicals is super meaningful, and we take a lot of pride in that. We are committed to serving our retail partners with what we call our ‘Retail Ready’ full service sales and marketing program.”

“NoCo6 also is the perfect place to introduce health-savvy consumers to our new brand, Urban Alchemy, which we believe will appeal to a younger, edgier audience, and will sell very well in cannabis dispensaries, natural products and other specialty stores,” said Rick Bennett, Director of Sales and Marketing for Restorative Botanicals and Urban Alchemy.

A leading supporter of the NoCo Hemp Expo and the growth of the hemp market, Restorative Botanicals will be featured as a Tote Bag Sponsor at NoCo6 for the second year in a row. To accommodate the growth of its product line and the launch of a new brand, the company doubled its exhibition space and prominence at the 2019 show.

In addition to showcasing its bestselling gummies, coffee, caramels and tinctures, the company will introduce Urban Alchemy, beginning with vape products and a trilogy of CBD-rich, full-spectrum hemp oil blends that contain 750 mg of CBD (available in Pure HempTM, Orange TwistTM and Cocoa MintTM).

“One bottle of Urban Alchemy has three times the potency of the average industry blend,” said Urban Alchemy Brand Manager Marcia Monaco. “These oils provide a functional, healthy high and a strong body buzz without the head fuzz—the best of all worlds.”

Show Stopper

“We believe our vape pen will be a show stopper at NoCo6,” said Urban Alchemy Brand Manager Marcia Monaco. “Inhalation of CBD through vaping can have a higher bioavailability than sublingual hemp oil extracts, as it enters the lungs and passes through to the bloodstream, making vaping a quick and efficient delivery method. Vape users experience a relaxed, focused and healthy full body buzz. Our revolutionary vape oil is sourced from organically grown Colorado hemp, farmed without the use of toxic, synthetic pesticides and fertilizers.”

Urban Alchemy’s vape pen uses a ceramic core heating technology that is free from heavy metals and toxins. Urban Alchemy’s vape oil contains no cutting agents, propylene glycol, vegetable glycerin or MCT oil, “making our product the cleanest, healthiest vaping experience available on the market,” Monaco adds.

Restorative Botanicals makes its hemp-derived products—including premium quality infused oils, highly functional topical creams and balms, specifically formulated pet blends, plus infused coffee and confections—from certified organic and registered Colorado hemp crops, extracted using a solvent-free, low-temperature CO2 process. This process preserves the plant’s broad spectrum of beneficial compounds and optimizes its naturally occurring cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids, antioxidants and phytonutrients. These products are tested by an independent third-party laboratory to ensure quality and purity.

The company introduced Bolder GummiesTM – with 10 milligrams of full-spectrum hemp extract per piece – at Natural Products Expo West. These outstanding gummies have been universally praised as having best-in-class flavor profile. This is achieved by using full-spectrum hemp extract without isolates or water solubilizing agents such as surfactant or liposome coatings. Restorative’s Bolder Gummies will be available for sampling at NoCo booth number 91.

Restorative Botanicals’ non-psychoactive, hemp-derived blends are thoughtfully formulated with highly effective ingredients to produce a variety of unique and functional products that help balance and regulate the body’s interconnected physiological systems, resulting in a variety of related benefits.

Oracle Data Cloud and Reddit Collaborate to Build Brand Safety Solution for Dynamic User-Generated Content



Reading Time: 2 minutes


Oracle Data Cloud today announced a first-of-its-kind collaboration with Reddit to provide new brand safety controls for advertisers around a real-time feed of user-generated content (UGC). Leveraging Oracle’s Contextual Intelligence technology, the integration will provide real-time content review and classification across industry-standard brand safety categories, giving advertisers greater control over where, and around what content, their campaigns run.

“Given the tremendous volume and dynamic nature of content across the Reddit platform, Oracle’s Contextual Intelligence will offer the ideal solution to provide real-time brand safety for Reddit advertisers,” said Kurt Kratchman, Group Vice President for Product Development and International, Oracle Data Cloud. “With Oracle’s Contextual Intelligence deployed across the majority of the addressable footprint of the open web, our collaboration with Reddit serves as a natural extension into the UGC space, as we help advertisers ensure their advertising strengthens their brands.”

User-generated content has historically presented a challenge for brand safety services, as many third-party solutions do not accurately describe or categorize the scope and scale of dynamic content online. Oracle’s Contextual Intelligence integration with Reddit is a solution designed for UGC that looks not only for specific terms but also for the context in which they are used, to help advertisers place their ads in safe and brand-appropriate contexts on the Reddit platform.

“Among Reddit’s strongest propositions for advertisers is the depth and authenticity of conversations across thousands of interest-based communities,” said Jen Wong, Reddit’s Chief Operating Officer. “Our current approach to brand safety includes effective moderation at the platform, community and campaign levels, and we’re thrilled to leverage Oracle’s Contextual Intelligence to offer yet another layer of brand safety that’s 3rd-party verified and customized for Reddit’s engagement. Our work with Oracle will be the first time a UGC platform has embarked on a verified brand safety solution for custom feeds, and we’re excited to evolve the product and relationship to meet the demands of the market.”
