A new coffee shop recently opened it’s doors in Leicester city, but this one serves much more than your usual flat white or double espresso.
MedEx CBD is an upmarket, quirky CBD infused coffee shop selling fresh CBD infused coffee and hot beverages. If that’s not enough to fulfil your CBD needs, they also sell a range of CBD snacks and an array of CBD skincare products.
The CBD Coffee UK industry has skyrocketed in recent months. CBD oil supplement sales have overtaken both Vitamin C sales and Vitamin D sales combined in the UK this year.
MedEx CBD Cafe, based in Welford Road, will look to take advantage of this growing industry by offering consumers an opportunity to try a vast array of CBD products in a safe environment.
CBD or cannabidiol as it’s also known is one of a 120 chemicals compound found within the cannabis or hemp plant. Unlike THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), another chemical compound found within the hemp plant, it is non-psychoactive. CBD interacts with the body through the endocannabinoid system. The endocannabinoid system is made of a network of receptors that are primarily found in the brain and the immune system. Some new research has shown that the ECS receptors may also be found in both the skin and the reproductive system.
CBD infused coffee is designed to be stimulate you through your day and to also help you relax. CBD has been shown to have some medical properties that may help with anxiety, depression and stress. Coffee infused with CBD is not just adding a few drops of CBD to your coffee, that would ruin the taste of the coffee and ruin the affects of the CBD. Instead, the CBD is heated along with the coffee beans to allow the cannabidiol natural oils to be infused properly into the coffee bean.
MedEx CBD Cafe is co-owned by Leicester couple Lamees Zamakda and Kieron Roberts. They shop was launched after the couple experienced positive benefits of using CBD, and wanted to share it with others.
In an interview with Leicestershire Live co-owner Lamees says: “I used to take CBD oil for my anxiety. It made such a difference that I was able to reduce my medication and eventually just take this natural alternative.”
Kieron began using CBD cream as a method of pain relief after fracturing his neck and breaking his collar bone in an accident.
The couple believe that CBD can offer beneficial properties to users with Lamees adding: “We are looking at the beneficial properties of the hemp plant and how cannabidiol extract can holistically improve the lives of many people.
“Cannabidiol extract is renowned for its multitude of health benefits and healing properties for the mind and body.”
The first CBD cafe to open in Leicester has a list of high quality CBD products to buy that will satisfy anyone and everyone. MedEx CBD cafe offers CBD products to buy such as CBD coffee, CBD tea, CBD hot chocolate, CBD protein shakes, CBD edibles, CBD soft drinks, a CBD skincare range that includes CBD bath bombs, CBD oils and finally CBD vapes and e-liquids.
All of the CBD products available to buy have been lab tested and are UK regulated according to co-owner Kieron Roberts.
Since completing the complete shop refurbishment himself, Kieron plans to add a retro gaming room as well as a rooftop terrace to the business in the near future.
MedEx CBD can be found at 54 Welford Road and is open from 10.30am to 9pm seven days a week. We here at CBD Village would like to wish Kieron and Lamees the best of luck with their new business in the future.
