Dr. Ed CBD celebrates record-breaking growth in the UK
Dr. Ed®, the flagship brand of The CBD Group, celebrated some of the fastest month-on-month growth for a new CBD brand in the UK. Dr. Ed®, co-founded and headed by friends Dr. Edward Jones and Alex McMillan, has continued to go from strength to strength in the cannabis sector, focussing on science and consumer education in an often-confusing market.
Their launch range of broad-spectrum CBD oils has found great popularity with the British public and led to a market-leading repurchase rate. With close to 10,000 bottles sold since launch, Dr. Ed® is now looking to expand their operation into new territories including Europe and Asia backed by a new round of capital investment and distribution agreements.
As the Marketing Director of The CBD Group, Alex McMillan has always been very aware that brands in the CBD industry must build consumer trust by correctly labelling their products, having them thoroughly tested and being as transparent and honest as possible with enquires.
Alex says ‘The CBD industry has absolutely exploded in the last year. It is the fastest growing area of the health and wellness industry by a country mile and lots of companies are falling flat when it comes to taking responsibility for their products, the way in which they are made and how they are advertised. The CBD space is confusing enough for consumers without companies selling sub-par products to make a quick buck. Luckily there are some really good CBD brands out there who are focussed on consumer education and creating top notch products and we like to think we are included in that list’
Dr. Edward Jones continues, ‘Recent media investigations into high-street CBD brands have highlighted some worrying results whether that be incorrect product labelling or illegal levels of certain regulated compounds within the products. We’ve always taken a science-first approach to our business. Everything we produce is double lab tested for extra peace of mind. We’d hate to let our customers down after spending so much time building up a great rapport with them as a business that really knows it’s stuff when it comes to CBD’.
With the contract manufacturing arm of The CBD Group being launched last month, the group aims to become one of the biggest players in CBD production in the UK, offering a range of services for emerging and established CBD brands.
