Sativa Group Plc has opened Goodbody Wellness in Bath, a specialist retail store offering a range of over 50 CBD products, including CBD-infused tea and coffee.
Trained staff are on hand at the 653 sq ft store to give customers advice and support around the products available – which include skincare, tinctures, balms, bath bombs, vape oils, body oils and capsules – and the best ways in which to use them. All the stock passes scientific laboratory testing by Sativa Group’s own independent laboratory, Phytovista, and sits within the legal content guidelines.
This opening marks the start of what we intend to be a major high street journey for Goodbody, as CBD wellness products gain wider acceptance in the UK
According to the company, the first weekend of trading saw footfall, turnover and average transaction value exceed expectations, with very positive reactions from customers. “Goodbody Wellness is the UK’s first prestige CBD store, and the Bath launch was a great success, with customer feedback indicating that the format is exactly what they wanted,” says Sativa founder and chief executive, Geremy Thomas. “This opening marks the start of what we intend to be a major high street journey for Goodbody, as CBD wellness products gain wider acceptance in the UK.”
Thomas adds: “Our product development and manufacturing capability allows multiple routes to market, and the roll out of our Goodbody store network will drive revenues. Bath is the first of three pilot stores, after which the company intends to roll out a national franchise network, because the directors believe that this is the fastest and least capital-intensive route to a national footprint.”
The shop was opened by Crispin Blunt, Member of Parliament for Reigate, and co-chair of the All Party Parliamentary Group for Drug Policy Reform.
Two more pilot stores, one in Clifton, Bristol, and one in Cirencester, are due to open in the coming months.
