About Us

We are Hemp Community Interest Company, trading as The Hemp Community

Our business is a Social Enterprise; a not-for-profit business.

The Hemp Community is a grassroots project that operates the original CBD shop in Edinburgh
We support individuals and families to use CBD products to their best effect.

Here at The Hemp Community we want to teach people how to feed and nurture their endocannabinoid systems with healthy hemp products, including CBD Oils, Vape Cartridges, Edibles and Balms.

Our shop offers a range of products and we want new customers to benefit from the experience of the whole community!

We believe that cannabis saves lives, and we believe that people are more important than profits.

A quick history

The company was registered in 2017 and we opened our first high street shop in April 2018. 
Our website started offering online sales soon after.
In 2021 The Hemp Community moved into our new premises.

The Hemp Community was conceived and founded by Dan Collins, a cannabis patient himself;

“I’m grateful to have found CBD when I did.
I now feel less like a list of symptoms and more like myself.

Dan brings a decade of experience working with vulnerable groups in the care sector.
His hobbies include running a social enterprise and writing about himself in the third person.

We continue our work in memory of those who were not fortunate enough to benefit from legal cannabis products.

There are millions of sick, sad and sore people in our communities who could use a little botanical intervention;
The Hemp Community is here to serve.


Our business was born from a love of Cannabis and a calling to help people connect with the  plant in a positive way.

We’re not a normal business, we’re a social enterprise and that means our primary focus is to benefit the wellbeing of our customers and community.

We would like some day to have a publicly accessible hemp farm; a functional educational space where people can experience hemp and cannabis growing techniques, modern and traditional agricultural practices, hemp processing and cannabinoid extraction, social and community focussed events and the sharing of communal produce!

The health and well-being benefits of hemp and cannabis derived cannabinoids are no longer a secret; there are many life-changing conditions that can be managed and improved by the use of cannabinoids.


We are here to play our role in the hemp renaissance!
