When it comes to wellness warriors, they perhaps don’t come more controversial than CBD.

But is it a case of a storm in a teacup with this proclaimed health hero?

The science says yes – and it’s in empirical evidence where local CBD company Karma Coast place their trust.

This Tynemouth-based holistic health service is deeply focussed on helping their clients achieve real wellbeing results using tried-and-tested methods. Which is why their practice is backed all the way by scientific research.

And it’s led them to CBD.

From helping us manage severe pain to making us less prone to stress, there’s a wealth of health and wellbeing benefits that new studies are now attributing to this natural remedy.

Here’s what you need to know…


Say ‘CBD’ and most people’s minds will turn straight to cannabis.

And they’re not wrong.

But CBD – or cannabidiol – is nothing to be wary of. Completely legal in the UK, CBD is one of two primary compounds naturally produced by the cannabis plant. While THC produces the high, CBD has no intoxicating effects whatsoever.

But it is where much of the medicinal value of the plant lies.

And the beauty of CBD now is that there are so many ways you can try it. Whether you want a couple of CBD drops in your coffee or would prefer taking a capsule with your other food supplements; if you find a CBD vape most soothing, love those CBD-infused skincare saviours, or you really feel the benefits of rubbing CBD balms onto your joints, modern CBD products are all about how you like to use them.


Karma Coast source their CBD from hemp, which has naturally low levels of THC, (the other compound found in cannabis, which produces the ‘high’).

However, the team still include THC – in its legal dosage – in many of their products because of the extensive research proving that it can help remedy pain, insomnia and anxiety, to name but a few benefits.

Not only that, but in the presence of CBD, THC’s psychoactive effects are significantly reduced, often to nothing at all. So, you don’t need to be concerned about the ‘high’ commonly associated with cannabis when enjoying any of Karma Coast’s products.


As part of a healthy, balanced lifestyle, CBD can offer plenty of general wellbeing advantages, from improving digestion to encouraging relaxation.

But sufferers of a wide range of ailments have attributed almost miraculous benefits to taking CBD in some form of another, too – and they’re all backed up by science.

However you consume it, CBD interacts with neuroreceptors in our body’s endocannabinoid system, which sends signals between our cells to help regulate movement, mood, homeostasis and our immune system.

Because of these properties, scientists have proven the benefits of CBD for the treatment of anxiety and depression, certain epilepsy syndromes, PTSD, opioid addiction, ALS and diabetic complications.

Thanks to its powerful anti-inflammatory properties, CBD has also been proven to help relieve unmanageable pain, making it a popular therapy among cancer patients and arthritis sufferers, in particular.

On a surface level, CBD is also a powerful antioxidant, meaning it’s a godsend for skin disorders like eczema and psoriasis, as well as fighting the appearance of wrinkles. But deeper than this, this quality of CBD has also been shown to protect against neurological diseases, specifically Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s and MS.

 10 benefits of CBD:

  • Reduces anxiety and depression
  • Relieves severe pain
  • Anti-inflammatory properties
  • Protects against brain disease
  • Improves skin health
  • Aids digestive issues
  • Encourages relaxation
  • Can improve symptoms of epilepsy, PTSD, ALS and diabetes
  • Effective treatment for opioid addiction
  • Regulates our immune system


The first and only organic CBD company in Newcastle upon Tyne, partners Dylan and Magdalena founded Karma Coast with an ambition to improve wellbeing through education.

Based high on the cliffs of the beautiful coastal village of Tynemouth, their CBD dispensary and shop provides only the highest quality, vegan-friendly, organic CBD products on the market – ranging in everything from CBD drops to CBD tea, vape cartridges and even milk (kinda).

And, with more than 20 years’ combined experience in the professional health industry, Magdalena and Dylan also offer complimentary wellness consultations (with follow-up support) that incorporate science and the very latest research to help those new to CBD understand how to consume their various products to best suit their unique health needs.

Karma Coast have been officially recognised by 11 independent awards bodies, winning:

  • ‘The Most Outstanding Organic CBD Company 2021’ at the Global Business Awards
  • ‘Best Organic CBD Products 2020’ at the UK Enterprise Awards
  • ‘Best Organic CBD Products 2020’ at the Northern Prestige Awards
  • ‘UK Organic CBD Company of the Year 2020’ at the Global Awards
  • ‘The Award of Excellence’ at the South East Star Awards
  • ‘CBD Specialist of the Year 2020’ at The Prestige Awards
  • ‘Best Organic CBD Wellbeing Product Company’ at the North East England Commercial Cannabis Awards 2022


As well as their transparent supply chain, their in-person dispensary and consultancy (meaning you actually get to put faces to their names), and their sparkling awards cabinet, perhaps the biggest testaments to Karma Coast’s excellence as a CBD provider are their customer reviews.

Their loyal client base (that numbers more than 2,000 and growing), have bestowed 5-star ratings on Karma Coast via both Google and Trustpilot.

Maybe that’s because customers here can trust that all the CBD used in Karma Coast’s products are certified organic, vegan-friendly, sustainably sourced and packed, and safe to use. Plus, they’re prepared using the whole plant, not merely isolates, meaning they provide a higher efficacy than other CBD products on the market.

Maybe because it’s that they trust the business to be always improving their offering, never settling for cheap imitations but using only state-of-the-art hardware to create their lab-tested products, (the credentials of which are all clearly visible on their website).

Or perhaps it’s because this small, family-run business puts community at the heart of everything that they do.

Whether it’s their work with local artisans to create their products, their support of local artists with the subsidised events they organise, or their partnership with local charities to ensure the wellbeing properties of their CBD products are available to those who need them most, Karma Coast’s raison d’être is to help people feel healthier, safer and happier.



A simple tincture packed with goodness, Karma Coast’s organically grown, full spectrum CBD Oil comes in three different strengths and just a few drops a day can help reduce inflammation, anxiety, depression, stress and pain. Daily use has also shown promising results for sufferers with epilepsy, cancer patients and those with behavioural disorders.

To use: On a full stomach, hold a few drops under the tongue. This can be repeated between one and five times a day.

Fancy a CBD coffee to start your day off right? These vegan, water-soluble drops offer five times the absorption rate of CBD oil, which means you’ll get more results, faster, (we’re talking between one and three minutes after taking). Created from broad spectrum CBD extract (0% THC), Karma Coast’s CBD Mylk can be used in way more than just coffee, or taken under the tongue in a similar way to CBD oil.

To use: Mix a few drops in any water-based drink and ingest, or hold a few drops under the tongue. This can be repeated between one and five times a day.

Easy to swallow and suitable for vegans, these fully legal food supplements can easily be incorporated into your everyday wellness routine.

To use: Take one capsule 15/20 minutes after food up to twice daily.

For the ultimate entourage effect, CBG / CBD is the perfect choice. Often referred to as “the mother of all cannabinoids”, CBG is what CBD is derived from. While both share anti-inflammatory, neuroprotective, calming and perhaps even anti-proliferate properties, CBG’s additional benefits including treating bladder dysfunction and helping those with inflammatory bowel disease.

When it comes to wonder products, Karma Coast’s CBD Balms take the biscuit – we’ve heard they can start to work in as little as 20 seconds! A unique blend of essential oils, organic beeswax and coconut oil with Karma Coast’s organic CBD oil distillate, this healing concoction gets to work so quickly because of its high cannabidiol content and the presence of receptors on the skin: meaning this rich source of Vitamin E, terpenes, flavonoids, antioxidants and nutrients is a powerful way to help ease muscle and joint pain.

To use: Choose your dosage and apply directly to the target area. Karma Coast recommend using the balm alongside one of their oral CBD oil products for maximum efficacy.

Fun fact: when inhaled, CBD’s rate of absorption can be as high as 90%. This means we can see immediate effects that can last between two to three hours. Just like their oils, Karma Coast’s CBD Cartridges – the world’s most concentrated, all-natural CBD pens – contain nothing but organic, real cannabis-derived terpenes with around 130 doses per cartridge, meaning you can CBD vape your way to fast-acting relief.

To use: Attach cartridge to your vape device and inhale.

The closer to nature CBD products are, the more we can reap their benefits – and Karma Coast’s CBD Tea is as natural as it gets. History suggests humans were drinking hemp tea more than 10,000 years ago, so it’s a tried and tested method for success. Karma Coast’s organic hemp leaves contain powerful terpenes known to help with sleep and inflammation, with studies also showing they can have an anti-depressant effect.

To use: Pour boiling water onto the hemp leaves and drink.
