"You’re stronger than you think you are." – Nic Hewitt

Nic, who was diagnosed with Bipolar Type II in her teens and Borderline Personality Disorder in her twenties, was left devastated when Storm Desmond wrecked her life in 2015, leaving her homeless and jobless. On the brink of suicide, her life around thanks to CBD: A cannabis food supplement introduced to the UK in 2016. Almost five years on, Nic is now running a successful business with her longstanding school friend.

In our wide-ranging conversation, we discuss some of the potential effects of CBD on the body; first steps of starting a CBD business; adding a human touch to stand out from the competition; opening a physical store, and so much more!
