Update 02/03/2023 Sadly at the end of 2022 the customer mentioned passed away, He visited twice after his first visit and each time increased the strength, as his illness took hold he decided he needed to get up to a high strength, the first time he visited he sat on the chair, clearly in a lot of pain, looking very sad, sounded truly fed up and walked out slowly, the second & third time he came he didn’t sit down, had some colour back in his face, he stood at the counter the whole time (once waiting for me to serve another customer). He was smiling, laughing and telling me how much a difference CBD had made to his life, he told me that although he knew he didn’t have too long left he couldn’t face it in the pain that he suffered and since taking CBD his pain levels were at such a low level that he felt good, energised and was enjoying the time he had left. We meet many people who are suffering with cruel illnesses like this and an unfortunate and very sad part of running this business is hearing when our customers have passed away however seeing them like this after taking our CBD makes it all worth it. It was my absolute pleasure to meet you and I cannot express how happy it makes me to hear how CBD helped you during your last few months, You were a true gentleman and I feel honoured to have met you. Rest In Peace.
A lovely man has been to the shop this week, No personal details are ever shared so all I’ll say he’s desperate for help, We spoke about the various methods of taking CBD, He told me he’s been considering it for a while but can’t manage any longer and wants to try it. I explained how the oils work, for example starting off on a low dose, building up and being consistent so that your Endocannabinoid system (ECS) works in harmony with CBD and isn’t overloaded too soon, which can lead to rejection of CBD or even enhance the symptoms and he said he’d like to go for the stronger beginner oil, 1200mg (30ml bottle).
He looked apprehensive as he took out his wallet and asked me how much, I took the opportunity to ask how much he expected it to be to which he replied £100, I quickly told him that he could get 4 bottles for that (£24.95 each). I had an overwhelming felling of sadness that he was prepared to pay £100 just for some relief.
The moral of this story is no matter how hard running a business can be and how little time I have for myself (what happens behind the scene’s is a whole other level) the sole purpose of building this business is so that people who need help from CBD can get it without paying ridiculous prices just to get some relief.
Little things like these give me a huge sense of wellbeing and I’ll continue to spread the word that CBD can be both affordable and good quality and you do not have to compromise on either.
So my question is would you pay £100 for a bottle of CBD that does the same as a £25 bottle? I know I wouldn’t and neither should you.
