A star ingredient: CBD (Cannabidiol)
CBD is one of up to eighty known cannabanoids found within the Cannabis Sativa Plant. It is non psychoactive so it produces no high (often associated with Cannabis). CBD research is still relatively young, but is under the spotlight and gaining increasing recognition and interest within medical communities.
All cannabinoids attach themselves to specific receptors within the body’s Endocannabinoid System. There are two known receptors CB1 and CB2, these receptors are involved in a variety of processes, including pain sensation, mood, immunity and memory. CB1 receptors are found all around the body, especially within the brain. CB2 receptors are more common in the immune system.
I began CBD Bristol with the idea of creating unique range of products that show the healing potential of this amazing plant. I’m so passionate about allowing people to realise the diversity of how it can help with different ailments and in many different ways. From humble beginnings, making this to increase healing for my massage clients it’s grown beyond my belief. I have the most wonderful team and I love what we’re creating. Everything is made with lots of love.
As a Birth & Postpartum Doula, Massage Therapist, Palliative Carer and Naturopathic Nutritionalist, I am naturally drawn to the healing arts. Values of self-care, nurture and body connection run through the veins of all I do.
In my work I encounter many women who wish to drop deeper into the body, connecting more fully to the wisdom and power that resides therein. I absolutely love learning and sharing tools that help empower women to do this, reclaiming their bodies, heath and life, transforming obstacles, regaining hormonal health and returning to a place of balance.
Creating Shakti Moontime has been an amazing opportunity to do just this. Supporting the self care revolution.

Working as an artist, illustrator and print maker. Over the years I have worked on various small Bristol business projects. I have been good friends with Jonathan for over ten years so when we started talking about creating our own CBD products whilst on a camping trip in Cornwall on our way to a Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry gig, I couldn’t think of a more worthwhile project to get involved with.
