LumiPay, our Payment Gateway, recognizes that there is a gap in the market for ‘high risk’ industries. With many traditional payment processors wanting to keep ‘clean’, low risk client books, resulting in a loss of income for CBD and cannabis businesses.Our solution to this provides stability for businesses to thrive.
Our Cannmed wholesale & marketplace platforms bring together compliant CBD manufacturing companies and brands so you can buy, build or interact with brands within the CBD space with trust and confidence.We vet the companies we work with thoroughly and educate our buyers on certification requirements and regulations.
Our media sites focus on educating the B2B and B2C sides of the industry to help bring CBD into the mainstream, de-stigmatising the products and open up the conversation around CBD and cannabis.These e-zines and social community networks provide The Poko Group with extensive market data on the needs and wants of our buyers.
The Poko Group is made up of a collection of CBD focused companies, which when working together form a complete CBD ecosystem; LumiPay allows Poko Group to process our own monies at very low advantageous rates and to be the payment provider for others allowing us to gather market intel and make high margins for processing money for CBD and non CBD companies. Our media sites have an engaged audience built up over 3 years in the UK and are now the lead generation for wholesale and white labelling services and finally in 2021 offering a marketplace platform to businesses to sell or set up a CBD ready store. Our skincare and CBD products ranges (Poko and Candid CBD) are advantageously positioned to become leaders in the UK using our networks built up over 2 years.
The Poko Group’s mission is to bring innovative, inspiring, solutions to the CBD industry, through our leading platforms, which when working together form a complete ecosystem.
Made up of a collection of CBD & Financial Services focused companies; from advertising and media to lead generation for white labelling services and finally offering a marketplace platform to sell and a payment gateway, Poko offers the CBD and cannabis industry educative, informative and trustworthy platforms to engage with and utilise.
Having worked in the industry for several years in US & Canada the Poko Group Founder, David Hughes, saw the limitations these restricted industries faced when it came to trustworthy sources for manufacturing, production and even education. Using his connections he formed a group of experts in their individual fields, to come together to create The Poko Group.
