The Tonic - Come Join The Tribe

Updated: Sep 16, 2021

The Tonic, Hebden Bridge, 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. Kate Henderson and Michelle Oxley, the Tonic’s founders are steadfast in their appreciation of what CBD is capable of and endeavour to produce the best quality organic, genuinely full spectrum CBD productsout there.

So what inspired them? Michelle’s brother Mark suffered from Multiple Sclerosis for 35 years and his only relief from the condition came via cannabis. Due to prevailing government legislation, this meant that in order to help her brother, Michelle’s whole family had no choice but to commit an illegal act by supplying him with it. No-one wants to break the law, but watching a loved one suffer acute pain, blindness and muscular spasms in the full knowledge that there was a method by which to ease his discomfort would have felt inhumane. Kate is a mountain biker and fell runner who has found relief from injuries and

The Tonic has featured in the Yorkshire Post, In Style, The Guardian , GQ Magazine, Telegraph, You Magazine, Pop Bitch and most recently Spectator Life and has several fans of note including Fearne Cotton, Amanda Bryram, Zephyr Wildman and Professor Green. Many local and not so local bikers and sports people use The Tonic for a variety of health and wellbeing reasons.

What makes us most proud are the testimonials from our customers.

After all, CBD is not cheap and it is not yet freely available through the NHS. Two people I’d like to mention are;

Fellow mountain biker and MS sufferer Andy McKenna who relies on CBD. You can watch his film This Way Up at his website . It tells his story of a pharma-free fight with MS, where biking is his therapy.

Then there’s Steve, who 5 years ago had a fall which rendered him wheel-chair-bound. He struggled to find an effective aid for his extreme discomfort and now uses our 3% CBG enhanced CBD which allowed him to sit through a full film with his fiancé Ruth for the first time in years.

The Tonic have a shop in the centre of Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, and an online shop at , crammed full of information and our entire product range. From our Hebden Bridge shop we offer free CBD consultations, CBD samples to try, copious amounts of cups of tea and an ear to listen.

We would especially like to introduce to you The Tonic's range of fabulous CBD infused teas. These luxury blends include: Fruit Explosion, Vibrant Lemon, Cleansing Blossom, Chai Spice, and Black Mango, perfect for anytime of the day. Full Spectrum water soluble CBD is used to create these blends, which comes with a complimentary terpene profile, and more more cannabinoids than just CBD in your brew.
