A York chocolate company has launched two of its products into the stores of a national retailer.

Holland and Barrett is now selling the CBD Original and CBD Plant-Based Chocolate from Wizards Magic.

The chocolate is infused with essential oils, superfood extract and 50mg of greenhouse grown spectrum CBD promising a world first velvety, smooth, and creamy taste.

Wizards Magic was founded by York-based experienced entrepreneur and former international rugby player Charlie Simpson-Daniel.

He said: "We are over the moon to bring our CBD range to life in H&B. We work with natural cold pressed CBD and so have avoided all the red tape and synthesised CBD's that exist across the market.

York Press:

"We believe by combining natural cold pressed CBD with very smooth chocolate blends we can allow our customers to enjoy luxury chocolate with benefits! H&B represent to our business the perfect innovation partner and we are delighted to continue pioneering new concepts with them!”

Development Chef Joe Hepworth added: “Our chocolate is the perfect treat for those looking for a natural way to relax and we hope that it helps to increase awareness of CBD and its potential benefits!”
