Our Story

In 2019, Cannaray started a CBD Revolution.

Our team of scientists and wellness experts came together with one goal: to help people understand the potential of the hemp plant. Each of us was fuelled by passion and our personal experiences with CBD. Now, we wanted to show others how easy-to-use, accessible and effective the compound can be.

Scott Maguire Cannaray CEO and Bozy the Dog | Cannaray CBD

For our CEO and co-founder, Scott Maguire, who has a background in biotech, the ‘lightbulb’ moment came when cannabinoid therapy helped to sustain his dog Bozy’s life*. For Joshua Roberts, another of our co-founders, CBD played a crucial role in his path to a healthier, happier life, as he juggled a busy work schedule with the beginning of fatherhood.

They, along with the rest of our team, built Cannaray on the belief that, when you fuse nature with innovative science, you can unleash the full power of CBD.

So that's exactly what we did. We sourced the highest quality hemp, harnessed new, cutting-edge technology, and poured our passion into the CBD oils, CBD capsules and CBD topicals we offer today.

But, for us, it doesn’t stop there. Watch this space as we continue to create new CBD essentials that we hope will impact your life the way they’ve impacted ours.

*We don’t make CBD for pets. Yet.
