ABOUT US

Bristol CBD was setup by natural healthcare practitioners Koren Barnwell and Mark Dunn.

“We decided to start making and using CBD oil ourselves in 2016 as we were curious about its benefits following the numerous inspiring stories we were hearing.

A few months later we shared our CBD with a friend who was undergoing intensive hospital treatment and we were amazed by the health-giving properties that our friend experienced from CBD during this time. The excitement we felt soon spread amongst friends, along with an interest in trying our CBD oil and so we decided to offer CBD to a wider audience.

The Bristol CBD network has been growing ever since, as has our passion to share this wonderful plant extract with as many people as possible.

Our mission is to provide high quality CBD products at affordable prices and continue educating people about CBD oil and its health-giving benefits.”

We have sourced the finest quality hemp extracts from across Europe and are proud to be able to offer such potent CBD products at affordable prices.

Please do not hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions about our CBD products – we are here to help you.

Warmest wishes,

The Bristol CBD Team

Mark Dunn

Mark Dunn

Despite an outwardly successful life – a senior position in the music industry, the ‘perfect family’, a beautiful house etc – I had always suffered from a seemingly uncontrollable mind. My inner world was very far from perfect.

I was constantly worrying, feeling frustrated or unable to make decisions. Guilt also played a major part in my life and I was rarely able to enjoy the present moment. This endless barrage of negative thinking caused mood swings and exhaustion and finally led to the break-up of my marriage.

Shortly afterwards I reached rock bottom. I could no longer live with the constant churning of my worrying mind and realised that I had to find a new way of being!

My story…

So I began to search for wisdom and for techniques that could release me from suffering. I left my job in London and moved back to Bristol. Over the next few years, I worked with yogis, spiritual masters, mindfulness experts and meditation teachers and studied with the wise and liberated in various places around the world.

The more I learned, the more I experienced inner peace and freedom from negativity. Through combining the best aspects of the most powerful methods, I started to develop my own practice, which slowly evolved into something I called Positive Meditation.

As my practice evolved, I noticed that friends started coming to me with their own problems and that I was able to help them. I decided to offer Positive Meditation to everyone that wanted to try it. Now, over nine years later, thousands have tried the technique and many continue to tell their friends about it.

In early 2017 I started taking CBD oil and my partner, Koren, and I then started making CBD oil because we felt that we could offer remarkably good CBD oil at a more affordable price than many other sites were charging. CBD is a wonderful compliment to meditation and we hope that others will discover it’s wonderful benefits.

My story…

“In 1994 whilst living in Holland, I was introduced to Traditional Chinese Medicine. There began a longstanding passion for Eastern Philosophy and the desire in me to travel and deepen my knowledge and understanding of such belief systems. Soon after, I found myself in Northern Thailand where, in 1996, I started my studies of Complementary Health.

Several years after learning Traditional Thai Massage, I eventually returned to the UK to become established as a natural healthcare practitioner. I went on to train and work as a Holistic Massage therapist in Brighton and, whilst raising my son, completed a six-year training course at Brighton University, qualifying with a science degree in Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine, alongside further qualifications in Swedish and Indian Head Massage. Before re-locating to Somerset in 2008, I ran a practice as both an Acupuncture and Massage therapist in Sussex.

As well as treating all general health issues, I commonly treat patients with stress-related issues and emotional problems, musculo-skeletal issues, and fertility and pregnancy related imbalances. I have attended post-graduate courses on the use of Acupuncture in Sports Injuries and Pregnancy and Infertility, and gained certification in Children’s Acupuncture, Trigger Point Therapy, Electro Acupuncture, Cosmetic Acupuncture, Pregnancy Massage and basic Tui Na techniques.

In more recent years my passion for food and nutrition led me to develop a particular interest in bowel health and digestive issues. As a result of treating and supporting many clients suffering with related problems, I find that these clients often need re-educating about diet, eating habits and general bowel health as part of a treatment programme. More recently I undertook training as a Colonic Hydrotherapist, enabling me to gain a greater understanding of many of the imbalances such clients present with. As a result I am able to provide a unique treatment package that may include various natural healthcare approaches, ensuring the best possible service for my clients.

I am wholeheartedly committed to the health and well-being of my patients. I believe in empowering the individual by encouraging self-help. Where possible I also give recommendations based on the principles of dietary and detox therapy, western herbal medicine, and eastern meditation techniques. In 2017 I started taking CBD oil and, with my partner, started to make CBD oil so that we could offer others high quality oils at an affordable price.

My story…

I have travelled extensively and worked in many exotic locations, but when I found myself in Bristol in 1999 I didn’t look back. I have had a varied career, from founding my own company in the sustainable fashion industry to being CEO of a charity in the redistribution of surplus food. Sustainability, health, wellbeing and creativity are very close to my heart and being a close friend of Mark and Koren and learning the magical powers of CBD allow me to easily assist and help people looking for an alternative. Alongside this, I spend my time crafting using materials that would otherwise be wasted.
