One of the UK’s biggest CBD brand, Love Hemp, has announced a partnership with Togetherall – a mental health support platform – to offer support services to its customers. The partnership will launch a 24/7 support service for help with a number of mental health conditions including anxiety and depression.
Over recent years, the CBD (cannabidiol) industry has developed and outgrown numerous forecasts and is expected to achieve annual sales of £690 million in 2021. While the CBD wellness industry has become a massive success, the cannabis derivative is also used medicinally to treat a number of conditions, including epilepsy.
However, over-the-counter wellness products in the sector – which are widely available online and in high street stores – are popular among people looking for relief from mental health issues such as anxiety and insomnia.
Now, in a first move for the industry, Love Hemp has partnered with Togetherall to offer free access to the Togetherall platform, with access to a number of courses and resources as well as support from trained professionals.
Togetherall, which has been in business for 14 years, has previously worked with the NHS and the British Army in a similar capacity. The deal is the first commercial partnership for the organisation.
Togetherall’s CEO, Henry Jones, said in a statement:
“This is a unique partnership for us, so we are delighted to welcome Love Hemp and its customers to the Togetherall community.
“By providing Togetherall access, Love Hemp’s subscribers can join a supportive and safe online environment to talk openly and anonymously about their feelings or experiences.”
Love Hemp chief executive Tony Calamita said:
“In the last year, the impact of the coronavirus pandemic has had a profound effect on people’s mental wellbeing and will continue to do so for years to come.
“We chose Togetherall because it offers anonymous support 24/7, bridging the gap for those who do not want to talk to friends or family, or seek professional help.”
Togetherall has supported over 300,000 members during its 14 years in operation, offering a community for people to log on easily and access safe support quickly. In their own words, Togetherall “offers a way for people to open up and share how they are feeling and by connecting with others to seek and provide support in a safe and anonymous way”.
Love Hemp was founded in 2015 and has grown to become one of the largest CBD companies in the UK, offering its products to customers around the world.
