Commitment to quality without compromise - Hemp Botanics
- In January 2014 our founders became the first people to pioneer the UK CBD industry and to offer genuine laboratory tested CBD products for sale outside of America.
- In August 2015 they became the first people since prohibition to successfully, commercially ship American grown, domestic Hemp derived cannabinoid products outside of the US, legally to the UK and then globally. This massive achievement then lead on to them both paving the way as true pioneers in the UK hemp/CBD industry by opening the global market for these US derived Hemp products.
"We are extremely proud of this very important and historic achievement that was attempted many times before us. Never since before prohibition had such products ever been shipped legally outside of America, we not only managed to achieve what was thought to be impossible but we very quickly set the standards for shipping these products globally, to every other country that is was possible to do so, something else that had not been achieved previously. At this point we were working day and night (which we both still are now) but....
...we were very happy to prove to all that doubted us that we could do what we promised and set out to, first time."
- In July 2015 Nick and Lisa opened the first ever truly dedicated/specialist CBD cannabis/Hemp store focusing on CBD rich, full spectrum supplementation for your Endocannabinoid system, in Kent UK.
- From April to September 2016 they were both an integral part of the House of Lords APPG inquiry into the rescheduling of Medicinal Cannabis in the UK. Both were personally invited to give statements, evidence and offer advice to the members of the inquiry.
- In June 2016 We moved from our Kent shop into our new Hemp Botanics, Portobello Road store in London. The first ever specialist CBD retail shop in London!
- In August 2017 Hemp Botanics became the first UK company to introduce and sell organic, legal, non-psychoactive and safe CBD cannabis (Hemp buds) in our London shop on Portobello Road. High quality, organic and legal CBD rich cannabis (Hemp) buds in a variety of strains including CBD hashish as well. Another incredible achievement that is proving to be a real game changer for the UK that could re-ignite the much needed push for decriminalisation.
- In August 2017 we attended the incredible and notorious Notting Hill Carnival for the second time. This time we showcased our legal CBD cannabis (Hemp buds) and the response was amazingly positive. We even had the support of the police, the few we managed to chat to were extremely supportive and positive about our stall, what we were doing and how we were doing it. Some even came and smelt the strains we had on display. The whole event was very historic, for the first time safe and legal cannabis was sold on the streets of London at Carnival in front of hundreds of police officers and people paid for their cannabis (Hemp buds) with their credit cards. we couldn't have experienced a more proud and humbling weekend if we had planned it.
- On the 20th of April 2018 Our owners became the first people in the UK to successfully navigate the procedures and permissions necessary to legally import US grown, high quality American Hemp commercially into the UK.
Thus solidifying the legal status of our CBD rich hemp buds that have been grown legally, under government licence, therefore classifying them as Hemp (not cannabis) and are shipped in the correct and proper manner. We can not vouch for anyone else’s products and any CBD flowers that have not been grown under a hemp licence are naturally classed as illegal cannabis no matter what the THC value.
Another big day for Hemp Botanics, it is also a potentially massive step forwards for the UK and for the legalisation and acceptance of cannabis in general!
With the Police fully supporting and advising our customers to ensure that they carry the original packaging the flowers came in and the proof of purchase to avoid any chance of prosecution due to confusion over what they are consuming.
A very important point we would like to make very clear is that it is illegal for sellers of these products to make any medicinal claims, give medical advise or recommendations. We always ensure these standards are adhered too at Hemp Botanics.
We are aware of UK organisations and companies purposely spreading false and misleading information while not forefilling the minimum standards that we set when we created this market, we strongly believe these standards should be strictly followed by everyone involved in this exciting and growing market to ensure the best quality service and safest products available.
We do not condone the behaviour of these people in anyway, It doesn't serve the consumer or the industry any good, is totally unethical and not how we created this UK CBD market.
There is also a great deal of misinformation being spread about the legality of hemp and CBD products in the UK. At Hemp Botanics we only deal in truth, facts and evidence. Hemp Botanics also ensure that the companies we work with produce ethically sourced products and that they test the products they produce fully and to the highest possible standards, for complete peace of mind and unquestioned quality.
Hemp Botanics does not sell, distribute or manufacture any product that contravenes the ‘Misuse of Drugs Act 1971’
We simply sell Hemp and Hemp derived products.
