CHEERFUL Buddha is the first CBD coffee & CBD Chocolate brand stocked in major retailers – including Holland & Barrett & WHSmith Travel – to make the UK Food Standards Agency CBD Novel Food Public List. The company is also the only BRC Certified manufacturer of CBD chocolate on the FSA public list. (BRC is the global standard for food safety.)
The new public list is hugely important for the CBD industry, representing those products which can legally remain on sale. To make the list, products had to undergo a rigorous application process and safety testing, the results of which were scrutinised by the FSA over the past 12 months.
Cheerful Buddha was founded in 2019 with the aim of creating enjoyable ways to incorporate CBD into your daily wellness routine. Aware that many people struggle with the taste of CBD oil, Cheerful Buddha incorporated it into luxury chocolate and coffees. These are made with only the finest natural ingredients and highest quality, hemp-derived CBD oil.
Cheerful Buddha’s CBD infused coffee was the first to go into a major retailer. Holland & Barrett originally trialled their Rainforest Alliance Colombian Arabica blend and the product is now being rolled out the into almost all of Holland & Barrett’s 800 stores across the UK.
Cheerful Buddha’s Luxury 70% dark chocolate comes in three flavours – natural, mint & orange, and is sold by WHSmith Travel in all the major airports and train stations across the UK. The company’s unique 100% natural CBD product ranges are also stocked by a diverse array of UK businesses such as cafes, health shops, independents, farm shops such as Daylesford Organic and by Jiffy in the rapid delivery grocery sector.
James Wright, Director of Cheerful Buddha, said:
“Our whole sector has been eagerly awaiting the release of the UK Food Standards Agency CBD Novel Food Public List. While being a complicated and lengthy process, it’s a giant leap to cementing public confidence in CBD products. “
