People of Leeds welcome new CBD shop

A shop selling CBD cannabis oils has opened in White Rose Shopping Centre today.

A shop has opened today at the White Rose Shopping Centre that will be selling CBD oil. The oil is derived from the cannabis plant, and is said to have extensive health benefits.

“We realised that we really needed a website to cater for the UK market. That happened around two or three months ago now and since then we have opened two stores in England – one in Leeds and one in Darlington two weeks ago”. said Kurtis Taylor, Director at CBD Oil UK.

With the two new shops, they now have eight retail stores spread across the UK.

The new shop has prompted a positive response on social media, particularly from a number of Leeds locals who have had life-changing results from using the oils.

Leeds resident Lesley Cummings suffers from pain caused by the degeneration of discs in her neck. She first started using CBD oil about 18 months ago after her husband read about the benefits: “Within days, the pain started to ease. Obviously it’s not completely gone but I can function normally now, and walk for miles.”

“I have cancelled the hospital appointments and have saved the NHS a lot of money… I may have to eventually buy a stronger one from somewhere but until then, I am happy as I am.”

Laura Varley also uses the oils, and says that the oils have help with many problems for her.

“It’s almost completely stopped the pain I’ve been in with fibromyalgia, as well as blocking symptoms of anxiety. I’ve not had a panic attack since I started on the oils, and I used to have one every time I went somewhere in public. I’ve finally been able to get back into work.”
