Hemp Well CBD is set to open its second retail store on 17 December 2021 as part of its plans to launch several high street ventures over the next 12 months, while Assured Screening has opened a direct to lab regulated private client Covid test service.
Founded by husband and wife team Phil James and Lisa McWilliams, Hemp Well CBD sells a range of Cannabidiol (CBD) products including CBD oil, tinctures, capsules, gummies, chocolate and topical creams, as well as spa products.
The Leeds store, located on the main mall close to Jumbo Records and the Leeds Rhinos Club Store, is the second dedicated store for the couple and is set to create three jobs.
