ody and Mind Botanical's are a 100% British grower and producer of Cannabis for CBD Oils, Honey and Tea. They are involved from the seeds being planted to extracting the CBD for infusion and to getting the order through your door. With all of their products independently lab tested to ensure the levels of CBD and THC are 100% legal in the UK and their farms certified organic following stringent regulations to ensure their plants are grown as mother nature intended, here at The Delicatessen Magazine we wanted to find out more…

How did Body and Mind Botanicals start and what was the thinking behind it? The idea for the business really started about 3 years ago when I was reading an article on the MS Society website that was talking about the benefits that people with MS were starting to feel from taking CBD. At that point I didn’t know what CBD was. My partner’s Dad suffered with MS for many years, so we always try to do what we can to raise money for MS charities and I have always stayed close to the research and developments of MS treatments (which is why I found this article). Upon reading the article, one benefit stated that CBD could help with getting to sleep, whilst also having a better quality of sleep. This was of real interest to me, as since the age of 14, I personally, had rarely slept for more than 4 hours a night. I decided from this, I would give it a go for myself. I instantly felt the benefits, but the biggest thing for me, was that the

people around me noticed a great improvement in my general mood too. This resulted in a period of reflection, which was really tough. I had no idea that I suffered with low mood, anxiety and stress. Anyone you would have asked at the time would have had no idea either. I wasn’t the most confident or most outgoing person anyone knew, however acting is easy, feeling is difficult. What CBD allowed me to do was release my anxiety and let the true me shine through, without fear of who may or may not like that. Once I discovered these amazing benefits that I personally felt and experienced, I was frustrated but the lack of product quality consistency and the misinformation I would find when trying to purchase oils. This is what led to the birth of Body Mind Botanicals. I decided to start my own business. I spent the next 12 months reading research papers and studying Cannabis and Cannabinoids. After that, it was time to find a farmer who was willing to grow the cannabis for me, setting up supply chain,

distribution, production processes and online. Once I’d discovered CBD, it took me 18 months to complete enough research to be confident enough to make and sell a product. But once that was all in place, I went for it, with a lot of help from my friend and business partner and we have never looked back. What products do you sell and what is your best seller to date? We currently sell three types of cannabis tea, all natural and organic, all grown on certified organic farms: • Loose Leaf • Individually bagged • Individually bagged with added peppermint. Our best seller to date, has been the natural flavour, individually bagged. We were surprised by this, we expected the loose leaf to be the most popular, given that it is the most economical way to consume cannabis tea. However, people love the convenience of the tea bags and they are 100% bio-degradable too.
