Rudding Park, a privately-owned luxury hotel and event venue in Harrogate, is promoting positive mental health in the workplace with the introduction of a CBD meetings experience. It is the first venue in the UK to introduce these CBD meetings.

The experience forms part of the new ‘Create Better Days with events at Rudding Park’ initiative, where the meeting organiser, delegates and employer can all reap rewards.

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a naturally occurring constituent found in the cannabis plant and is reported to help reduce anxiety and support positive mental health along with many other benefits including helping to improve relaxation, reduce pain and stiffness and reduce physical inflammation.

CBD is legal in the UK as long as it does not contain more than 0.2% of THC, the crucial component that gives cannabis its psychotic effects. Optional treatments and packages include CBD tea with a CBD chocolate, a bottle hemp water (500ml), hot towel hand wrap infused with CBD oil or a spray of CBD oil under the tongue.

Hendrik Le Roux, Rudding Park’s Business Development Manager, comments:

“As an employer, Rudding Park takes wellness in the workplace seriously and is very much a part of its culture. Due to its many health benefits, CBD is a relatively new trend taking the wellness world by storm.

“We always look for innovative ways to enhance our guest experience and felt there was an opportunity to incorporate CBD into the business environment, allowing delegates who may being feeling stressed to benefit.”
