What is the best CBD oil UK? This was one of the most popular questions asked online in the United Kingdom during the Covid-19 pandemic.
What is CBD oil, and what does it do?
Firstly, it’s important to understand that CBD content is not tested for in most conventional drug tests.
What can CBD oil do for me?
Blessed CBD remains our top pick as the UK’s #1 CBD brand. This family-run CBD brand has shown consistency throughout 2019 to 2021, and takes our “best CBD oil UK” award.
Hempura is a small and affordable CBD producer using supercritical CO2 extraction to refine their products, ensuring purity and safety.
The first CBD oil I ever bought turned out to be a fake. Lesson learnt: Don’t cheap out. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
While we didn’t notice any immediate physical effects from the oil, we weren’t looking for any in particular. Our tester wants to emphasise that she’s in good health so not looking for specific pain relief or anti-inflammatory benefits. That being said, it worked wonders on her mood. After a stressful week, only a few days into using the drops thrice daily, she felt much happier, more positive and was much more easy going.
Taking around 8 drops before bed ensured I got a full night of good quality sleep. The Cannabidiol is CO2 extracted and lab tested, which ensures it is rich in natural cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids and phytonutrients. There are a range of potency ranging from mild to extra strong.
Extracted from organically-grown hemp, these oils are THC free and come in two strengths – 300mg and 1000mg – so are suitable for both new and seasoned users. They’re also third-party lab tested, meaning you can rest assured they’re high quality as well as vegan and gluten and palm oil free, making them inclusive to almost all diets and preferences.
The range stems from 500mg to 3000mg strengths in 500mg increments and includes topical balms, capsules and good old traditional oil. The label offers one of the highest quality oils on the market after being put through its paces by a rigorous third-party testing process, gaining a certification from the Banned Substance Control Group to ensure its free from any contaminants and remains consistent throughout.
What to look for when you buy CBD oil
Endoca takes our top pick for a few important reasons. This CBD oil is made with 100 per cent organic hemp and is vegan, gluten free and non-GMO. But perhaps most impressive is the fact Endoca manufacture everything themselves from seed to shelf — a rarity in CBD oil production.
After placing the oil just under the tongue, it can take around 30 minutes to kick in. We found it best to create a routine and use it just before bed as it made us feel very mellow and had a great effect in promoting a deeper and longer sleep. It didn’t trigger any crazy dreams or anything out of the ordinary (which we would have liked!).
