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.
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.
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.
Why Choose Cannaray CBD?
Pure Plant Extract
Our products contain a power-packed dose of purified CBD, so your body is able to process and absorb more of the good stuff.
This is a THC-free zone, meaning our products are entirely legal, and they won’t give you the ‘high’ that’s often linked to cannabis.
We don’t just test our blends once or twice – we test them three times to ensure you get the highest quality, most effective CBD dose.

Like you, we care about the planet and keeping our eco-conscience clear, so we only pick partners that help us deliver on sustainability. The result? CBD essentials that keep that carbon footprint small, made with the promise of limiting carbon emissions and water usage.
This eco-kind commitment covers each and every part of Cannaray, and we’re always looking for ways to take responsible retail further. Our goal is to reach a 100% zero-carbon and zero-waste footprint, so watch this space as we continue to innovate in the CBD world.
Open Book Policy
When it comes to wellness, transparency is everything. That’s why we take pride in revealing every detail of our products, from the ingredients we use to the way we blend each oil or mix each balm. Our partner farms must link the steps of the production process through a trackable serial number, and we publish all our lab reports online to offer the complete breakdown of each product. We’ll also answer any burning CBD questions you may have, so feel free to reach out to us via email, Facebook or Instagram to find out more.
Every bottle and jar we use to package our CBD is made with glass, while the pumps and lids are created using 100% recyclable plastics. Next up, we’re working on plans to launch a refill loyalty scheme, so subscribe to our newsletter for the latest updates (and get a 15% discount code, too).
