Kate Henderson and Michelle Oxley are Hebden Bridge residents and have this past week opened up their shop and drop-in room in Hebden Bridge Mill, St Georges Square. It’s a beautiful, welcoming space for customers to have a cuppa, ask any questions they have on CBD and purchase their product ‘The Tonic’.
The Tonic was born in 2017 of little more than a sincere belief in the unique qualities of CBD and a stubborn, unflinching and growing desire to help others. Michelle and Kate, the founders found their way to the product via different routes, but both are steadfast in their appreciation of what CBD is capable of.
In order to provide the best product available, they have sourced and gone into partnership with the finest Dutch growers whose organic approach and insistence on purity, safety and quality mirrors their own. In all aspects of the Tonic’s business, from the packaging to the bank they use, ethical considerations are paramount.
Michelle has seen the benefits of CBD first hand with her brother who suffered from Multiple Sclerosis for 35 years and her dad with Alzheimer’s. Michelle’s family history, coupled with her own positive experience of CBD have inspired her to join forces with Kate and share this incredible plant-based tonic.
Think of CBD as a food supplement, a herbal remedy, a pure plant extract that, unlike other known plant-based remedies, happens to be more effective on our health than anything we’ve experienced from nature.
Even though it seems like cannabidiol (CBD) is something new, it has been used by humans since the dawn of civilisation. CBD is a natural constituent of hemp and cannabis, a plant that has been utilized for centuries as medicine. It’s not uncommon for old medicinal practices to be re-established in cultures, more so now it seems as we turn back to nature for nurture
