Key CBD Industry Connections for 2023
Updated: Dec 18, 2022
The Hemp Hound membership update and directory push
Now, back to business!
Since March of this year, The Hemp Hound Agency has been working its socks off in an effort to get some key industry concerns heard in the never ending saga that is Novel Foods for CBD products.
But we're not here to talk about that today as there is more to the world of legal cannabis in the UK and EU, so lets talk about some of the great businesses on the Hemp Hound Directory.
We've got some great companies worth getting in touch with, whether you're looking for new or alternative products to complete your range, or services to help your business run more smoothly, we've got you covered.
The Directory itself comes with a convenient and easy to use landing page, from here you're presented with the following lists for all the B2B Hemp & CBD services you could need.
The lists are exactly what they say on the tin, so do feel free to take a look around.
When it comes to listed companies, everyone has their niche. It's not just about the products and services that they offer, but the ethos behind them.
Here are some new and renewed companies to check out, adding to the choice that is available to you.
And they are?

And renewed members?
2022 has been a tough year for everyone, and that's just with the ongoing situation with Novel Foods. Some companies struggled to recover after the Covid Lockdowns, where as others are now having to adapt to the ever looming cost of living crisis.
To all of those who who have closed over this time, you won't be forgotten, and I hope you managed to find a new journey, and with new adventures. If you've walked into something that could at one point be introduced to Novel Foods though, you're mad!!!
That being said, a fair few companies have survived these hard times, and some have actually been able to not just adapt to the new way of the world, but also increase their visibility and market share. Hats off to you if you happen to be in that number!
And here's a few of those companies who are returning for the next part of their journey with The Hemp Hound Agency!
The Tonic was born in 2017 of little more than a sincere belief in the unique qualities of CBD and a stubborn, unflinching and growing desire to help others.
They've done this and more, not just with their products but the passion and knowledge behind them.
The Tonic has an exceptional array of products including oils, patches, cosmetics and an amazing range of blended teas to tantalise all taste buds.
Hempen Organic is a Not-For-Profit farming co-operative that is crazy about hemp, and have been helping other farmers on their quests to grow hemp since 2015.
Hempen's products are well known, as is their ethos and passion, and have great things planned for this year. You too can be part of that as they often offer the chance to become part of their co-operative, as well as to volunteer to help at events and harvest time.
If there was any company out there that can say they champion cruelty free products, it's Essench CBD.
That's not all they are about though, they also work towards environmentally friendly practices by ensuring that their vegan friendly products are also free of palm oils and derivatives.
Essench CBD provide an artisanal approach to cosmetics, and offer white label with the option for custom formulations. They also offer inhouse design and printing services to help you create a product range that catches the consumers eye!
Taunton Hemp Company offer hemp derived products that are grown in the South West, where the jet stream touches the UK and allows for more sunshine than anywhere else in the British Isles!
With over 500 acres, which includes greenhouse space, there's not much that Taunton Hemp Company can't provide. They are also able to provide acreage on a contract basis, to provide you with the raw materials you need regardless of if it's for the food industry, building materials, animal bedding or bio fuel.
Then comes their sister company, Country Boys Collective.
Named because of a love for the music genre, they create products that are traceable from seed to shelf, and provide everything from seed oils, cold press hemp oils, topicals, edibles and a range of hard wearing hemp derived clothing.
Body and Mind Botanicals are cold press hemp oil specialists, with a range of products created using their inhouse processed oil.
They also provide a range of hemp based products from teas to steak rubs, and also offer a range of there products with alternative botanical infusions.

Introducing Hemp Hound TV
This started of as a thought, but over time it's become a necessity. This directory push for example has already taken my 3 days to write, and the intention to shorten that process by engaging a bit more in a video format. I'll still write articles of course, but not to the extent I have been over the last 9 or so months.
So far in the 1 month that it's been live, Hemp Hound TV has only really covered the Hemp Hound's public interest disclosure complaint that was submitted to the FSA and focuses on their handling of Novel Foods. That's about to change though, with interviews, news and reviews planned to be released very soon.
So how about becoming part of the pack?
At The Hemp Hound Agency, you'll know that your concerns will be listened to, you will have a voice, and you'll be personally kept up to date with industry movement.
It costs as little as £385 for the year, get's you on a promoted directory, and you'll have the chance to get your business, and your industry opinions aired on Hemp Hound TV. All you have to do is email email@example.com and ask for more details.
