Drugstore product, not drug:
Investor Frank Otto relies on hemp

Düsseldorf/Hamburg, 09.03.2020. The investment in hemp has paid off: CannaCare Health GmbH from Düsseldorf, whose majority shareholder is the Hamburg media entrepreneur Frank Otto, is now listed with its CBD oils in 2200 ROSSMANN drugstores. Since February 2020, the cannabis oil extracted from the female hemp plant has been on the shelves of ROSSMANN stores nationwide under the brand name CANOBO, and demand has clearly exceeded expectations. Customers can choose between product variants with a concentration of 2.75 and 5 percent cannabidiol (CBD).




CBD is the non-psychoactive component of the hemp plant. It does not cause high or addiction and is classified by the WHO as harmless and beneficial to health. The oils marketed under the brand name CANOBO are classified as dietary supplements, its users appreciate the fast starting beneficial effects. Some take it to reduce stress or to fall asleep better, others to alleviate jet lag – like the much-travelled entrepreneur Frank Otto. And CBD oils are also said to have a supporting effect on the immune system.


CannaCare Health GmbH is one of the leading German manufacturers and wholesalers of high-quality cannabidiol preparations and will soon move its headquarters to Hamburg in the course of its current expansion. Since 2018 the company has been supplying pharmacies with its products, including CANOBO extra CBD oil with a natural active ingredient content of 10 percent. The following applies to the entire product range: The certificate of marketability as a food supplement issued by professionally experienced persons stands for compliance with narrowly defined legal regulations.(


„This convinced ROSSMANN“, says investor Frank Otto. And also that CannaCare Health GmbH only relies on producers who produce CBD according to the strictest standards to ensure quality assurance. “Because not all competitors do this. At CannaCare every batch is meticulously checked for purity, CBD content, THC content, pesticides and heavy metals”. In addition to the CBD oils, the company also sells a muscle gel (CANOBO-AKTIV) with the beneficial active ingredient at ROSSMANN, which optimally supports the user in regeneration after sporting activities. Further products in the areas of dietary supplements, cosmetics and wellness are in the pipeline. In view of this development, investor Otto can sleep soundly. And even without CBD.
