It all began with a balm recipe.
CBD Bristol was founded in 2017 by two friends, Jonathan and Ross.
It was the early days of the CBD boom. We become inspired by the magical, medicinal properties of CBD through a series of chance encounters, and our own research.
With £500 to invest in ingredients and tins, and that early balm recipe — we created a simple self care product with a big impact. Our original product — the Savasana Muscle Rub.
From that very first batch, our friends and customers told us about the variety of aches and pains they were relieving with the Savasana Balm. We were blown away by the huge variety of discomforts that were being treated and soothed, without the need for prescription medication.
Combining our passion for essential oils, natural ingredients, and pioneering cannabis research — CBD Bristol grew to become the dearly loved range of balms and oils we sell today.
Soon, our products were making waves throughout the wellness community in Bristol. Within just a few months, we were selling to shops across the city.
Now, we sell our range of topical CBD products across the UK, and have received a coveted recognition for good practice by the Medical Cannabis Clinicians Society for our CBD Edibles.
Scientific research into cannabinoids continues to expand, and we are now able to explore the true medicinal value that this plant has to offer. After five years of experience of helping people, and using a holistic approach with our customers, we see ourselves as cannabinoid medicine enthusiasts and innovators. As our understanding of cannabis sativa evolves, we also work closely with CBG, the lesser known mother cannabinoid.
