A FIRM has opened its first dedicated retail store in York, aiming to sell CBD products which “support the body and mind in many ways”.
Hemp Well Limited has opened its first store in High Petergate in the city – which predominately sells the company’s branded CBD, or Cannabidiol, products.
Set up by married local couple, Philip and Lisa James, the store’s product range includes consists of a range of CBD oil tinctures, capsules, gummies, chocolates, topical creams for the face and body and an assortment of spa products such as soaps and candles.
Philip said: “It was clear having spoken to many customers that there is a lot of CBD curious people out there.
“We now have a dedicated area in the shop where people can get some information, try some products and also learn how our CBD is produced and how it works in the body.”
Last year, Philip cultivated over 300 acres of hemp plants, which he sends to Poland to extract the CBD, which is is one of the cannabinoids found in cannabis plants.
“I know exactly which part of our hemp farm each CBD product originates from, we grow our plants organically, so I know exactly the make up of the soil, the water, and any nutrients they were fed”, he added.
The couple have both a strong online presence and two-years of fielding CBD inquiries. When asked about their customers, Lisa who manages their online websites, said: “Our customer demographic really varies but typically its 30 and upwards.”
But, they are aiming to expand on this by offering advice on their products.
The store, which opened on Monday (April 12) will be open from 10am to 6pm every day.
