While many people still view ‘dagga’ with some level of suspicion, more and more are starting to discover the various health benefits that cannabis-based products can provide. Dean Trollip, founder of East London-based company Bio Naturals, is a perfect example.
Bio Naturals, founded in 2014, supplies and manufactures a range of products whose key ingredient is cannabidiol (CBD).
“In cannabis, you get two main components: tetrahydrocannabinol [THC] and CBD,” said Trollip.
“THC is illegal but the CBD component is legal.”
In addition to CBD oil, the company also offers creams, tinctures, salves and even vape juice.
Trollip assures that he is very strict when it comes to quality.
“I’m very particular about the raw ingredients that go into my products.
“Everything that goes into them must be tested first,” he said. Trollip said people’s attitudes about cannabis were starting to change.
“People are becoming more aware about the health benefits of CBD.”
As previously reported by the GO! & Express, there have been numerous studies over the years proving the effectiveness of CBD and other cannabis-based treatments in helping various conditions, such as chronic pain and even cancer.
Trollip founded Bio Naturals in 2014 after seeing how CBD helped his mother, who was left bed-ridden after a series of strokes.
“From laying in bed for so long, over six years, she developed all kinds of rashes and sores.“A friend of mine said why don’t I try cannabis so I went and got some and made a cream, just coconut oil with some cannabis and a few other bits and pieces, and it healed up quickly.
“The rest is history.”
