In our separate production laboratories, we manufacture our products and perform testing & product development. We make a wide range of both edible and cosmetic CBD products. If you would like to come and visit the lab please email phil@hempwell.co.uk and we will get back you within 24 hours.

HempWell Directors

lisa mcwilliams

Lisa, who is the CEO of the business, was previously a corporate communications specialist. She has worked for a variety of investment banks as well as Fortune 500 companies. Her last position was with Imagination, a global creative agency, and her most recent assignment as a freelancer has been working with Deutsche Bank on their Asian-based global events.


Lisa now runs the business on a day to day basis and is on hand to answer any queries on CBD and the collection of products available at Hemp Well.

Philip James

Phil first got involved with CBD in 2015 as Head of Global Business Development at Bridge Capital, a US Investment Firm, where he was directly involved in the funding of US businesses in the medical marijuana and CBD sector. He started taking CBD in 2016 to help with his chronic arthritis in his knees courtesy of an overly long passion for playing rugby and found the additional benefits of better sleep and reduced stress.


Phil has grown over a million CBD-rich plants in the last 4 years and manages production. He plans the product development strategy and also looks after the white label operations.
