Joshua Roberts is passionate about mental and physical health. He’s endlessly interested in how we can improve upon our own personal hardware and software through the practices of meditation, diet, exercise, compassion and smiles. In his current role as the Chief Business Officer and Co-founder at Cannaray Limited he’s able to put this passion to work creating next generation CBD products for health and wellbeing.

1. Can you introduce yourself and tell us about your background?
Hi I’m Josh. I’m the Chief Businesss Officer at Cannaray. I’m from the US and have lived in London for the last 10 years. Mine is a well-trodden path, I worked in finance for over a decade and ended up burnt out and looking for a way to improve my overall well-being. I’ve always suffered with a bit of anxiety and OCD which made me a decent trader but didn’t help in my overall life. After picking up a book by Jon Kabat-Zinn in 2014 I started meditating and eating less meat. Those changes helped enormously but it wasn’t until I found CBD that I was able to finally get out of my own way.
2. What’s the most important thing people should know about CBD?
It’s safe and effective. For me it works to reduce anxiety and improve sleep quality.
3. What does Cannaray stand for as a brand?
Cannaray exists in the convergence of science and lifestyle. We value sustainability, honesty, transparency, product efficacy and we try our best not to take ourselves too seriously.
4. Cannaray uses some innovative technology for CBD extraction. Can you break that down for us?
Our capsules include a multi-patented technology called VESIsorb which is used to increase the bioavailability of CBD. VESIsorb® is described as a “natural” technology because it mimics the human fat digestion and absorption process; the technology has a long history of safe and effective use worldwide.
5. What is the Gold Standard Formula of Cannaray?
The Gold Standard moniker is there to represent Cannaray’s mission to provide our consumers the highest level of innovation, taste, format, brand and education.
6. What is the role of the scientific advisory board for product development?
Cannaray’s scientific advisory board helps with all levels of product development from our choice of formulation labs and technology partners to technology development, ingredients, and delivery mechanisms.
7. For anyone new to the brand, what product should they dive in with?
The Oral Drops are the most common product format and provide the quickest result. The Skin Cream is perfect for tense shoulders and to help calm down before bed. My favourite are the capsules because of the added absorption technology and easy dosing.
8. What’s next for Cannaray?
We will be launching a whole new line of CBD products in 2021 backed by science and technology and built to include our customer’s feedback plus our own research-based vision of where the CBD and wellness market is heading.
