Geremy Thomas, Goodbody Botanicals

Goodbody Botanicals is one of the UK’s leading providers of CBD (cannabidiol) products, primarily online with and physical stores in Bath and Bristol.
We offer a range of CBD products with full traceability from the oil extracted from the seed in the ground to the product on the shelf – we select it, we extract it, we test it, we bottle it.

Our in-house scientific and quality teams ensure all of our products are of the highest standards and we are proud to be rated ‘Excellent’ by our customers on Trustpilot.
Established in 2019, Goodbody is part of Sativa Group PLC, the first listed medicinal cannabis company in the UK.

Our new membership scheme, from £4.99 a quarter, ensures customers get the cheapest rate currently on the UK market at 80p per 100mg cbd.

How did you come up with the idea for Goodbody Botanicals?

Three and a half years ago I had a house in Vancouver. Some friends of mine invited me to a cannabis convention and I was interested because of the explosion of interest in the medicinal cannabis market.

At the time there was nothing like it in the UK. I decided to come back and be a pioneer in the CBD market.

I set about building a base in the UK medicinal cannabis industry. We were one of the first in the sector.

We’ve watched the rise and fall of a number of people around us, and we’re still here.


How has the company evolved during the pandemic?

We launched Goodbody Botanicals in 2019 to combine traditional high street shops with becoming one of the leading UK-based online retailers.

The year preceding the pandemic had seen us open a number of physical stores, which we then had to close temporarily at the onset of the first lockdown.

Thankfully, the infrastructure we had put in place helped us really grow our e-commerce side so we were able to adapt really well to the restrictions.

We diversified our offering to begin providing covid testing as an official government partner under Goodbody Clinic.

Meanwhile, our CBD offering has gone from strength to strength and since our physical shops reopened, we have been overwhelmed by the support we have received.

What can we expect from the company in the future?

We have just launched an exciting new range, as well as our fantastic new membership scheme.

We are committed to being the best value providers in the CBD market and our membership scheme allows us to do just that.

Otherwise, I want to continue to work towards greater support for the CBD industry which we feel is lacking from the Government so far.

The government needs to relax the rules on growing CBD here. Every man and their dog has gone into making CBD in their garage.

There are too many cowboys in the market making inferior products.
