CBD, short for cannabidiol, is a type of cannabinoid derived directly from the variety of cannabis plant called Hemp. It can be used as a food supplement and does not create a “high effect” or any form of intoxication. Owned by husband and wife team Philip and Lisa James, Hemp Well Limited was established in 2017 and began selling its products online in 2018. Philip and Lisa James began selling their Hemp Well products online in 2017 before opening their store in York earlier this year Mr James became involved in the CBD industry during his time in corporate finance and, having taken CBD himself to ease chronic pain in his knee, decided to set up a business to manufacture high quality, affordable products in the UK. York has proven to be an suitable base for the business thanks to its world-leading science community. As well as having offices and a laboratory at York Science Park, Mr James has also worked with the Green Chemistry Centre of Excellence (GCCE) at the University of York on a research project into the extraction processes of CBD from Hemp plants.

"It is great to finally be able to meet our customers in person having operated solely online for the past two years. A lot of people are very curious about the benefits of CBD and the store now means they can come along and chat to myself or Lisa and ask us anything they need to know." Mr James said that many customers who have approached them recently have had issues with anxiety and stress in particular. He said: "I think this is something which is only going to continue to grow as we come out of the coronavirus pandemic and the store now gives us the opportunity to educate people about the potential benefits of CBD and share our expertise and experiences with them.”

The CBD used in Hemp Well products originates from Hemp plants grown across 300 acres in Bulgaria by Mr James's company Natural Science. Once the plants are harvested, they are processed in Poland before entering the UK as pure CBD. In addition to their online and retail avenues, Hemp Well also stocks its products in other health and wellness shops across Yorkshire and provide a contract manufacturing service for other CBD brands. CBD has already been proven to be effective as a treatment for some forms of epilepsy. There are currently 30 clinical trials being undertaken in the UK and Europe to evaluate the clinical potential of CBD for specific conditions including various mental health issues, chronic pain management for symptoms such as osteoarthritis and degenerative brain disorders among others.
