Hampshire CBD company sees sales soar in lockdown

"For a growing number of people, CBD has been an effective way of managing tension and anxiety as a result of the pandemic."
Layton Brooks, co-founder of CBD Shopy

A Hampshire-based CBD company has seen sales soar during lockdown as stressed-out members of the public sought to ease Covid-19 anxiety.

CBD Shopy, based in Ringwood, has seen website visits almost double since March, while sales of specialty items such as its ZenBears gummy range have surged too.

The worldwide pandemic has majorly disrupted many lives – leading to financial insecurity, job loss fears and chronic loneliness, among other problems.

And as mental health worries heightened, interest in cannabidiol has surged – with many users claiming the cannabis-derived supplement has the power to reduce anxiety and promote better sleep.

Layton Brooks, director and co-founder of CBD Shopy, said: "The Covid-19 pandemic has disrupted all of our lives in one way or another and created a difficult period of uncertainty and stress.

"For a growing number of people, CBD has been an effective way of managing tension and anxiety as a result of the pandemic.

"Our online shop has never been so busy, with sales across our range of products having roughly doubled since mid-March.

"One of our most popular ranges has been the ZenBears CBD gummies, a fun twist on the popular sweets which a lot of people prefer to other products such as CBD oil drops or capsules."

CBD Shopy is one of the UK's most trusted CBD shops, with more than 450 glowing TrustPilot reviews.

Founded by Layton and his business partner Claudio Santos, the firm sources only the finest ingredients to create the highest-quality products.

Among the best-selling products are Full Spectrum CBD Oil, Love CBD Entourage Capsules and CBD Life Hemp Oil.

ZenBears gummies come with 20mg of cannabidiol in each bear and are entirely vegan-friendly.

They are also free of THC, so they use all the goodness of the hemp plant without the main psychoactive compound.
