These oil drops are perfect for someone who still isn't completely sure whether they'd enjoy CBD. Cannaray offers a discovery bottle that comes in at just 10 ml, perfect for testing things out and seeing whether you like it. And if you do like it, there are even more options!
With the standard 30 ml bottle, you're bound to be set for weeks. But you can also get different bundles that lower the cost and give you enough CBD to last three to six months. Cannaray also posts all of their lab reports, so you don't have to worry about ingesting harmful chemicals either. And the oil itself uses coconut oil and peppermint for a very interesting flavour profile. So, if you're looking for the best CBD oil UK has to offer, we'd say it's this one.
First off, while it's not always good to blindly follow mob mentality, we have to acknowledge how many pats on the back this oil has gotten. From Vogue to Marie Claire, these sleep drops have been proclaimed champions in their field! And this is likely due to their rather unique formula.
While mint is rather standard for CBD oils, you rarely see lavender or Butterfly Pea Flower on the ingredients list. In fact, OTO is so certain of this formula that they even offer a money-back guarantee if you're not satisfied. And we'd say this type of confidence would make anyone's sleep a lot easier.
Vitality offers a wide range of CBD products, from bath bombs to face masks. But this muscle balm caught our eye as good-quality CBD balms/creams aren't always easy to find. However, this one seems like the exception!
It's a broad-spectrum CBD product, so it contains multiple compounds from the cannabis plant but 0% THC. It also has a decent density, with one container having 300 mg of CBD. This means that it can last for quite a bit, especially if you only use it after workouts.
With a 0.2% THC content and a whopping 3000mg of CBD, this oil features multiple compounds from the hemp plant. It comes in discreet packaging and offers a high level of relaxation with a minimal to non-existent high (since the THC quantity is low). The brand also has all their laboratory listings available to the public, so you don't have to worry about that either.
So, if you think that weaker CBD oils can't get you in the headspace you'd like, this could be the next step up. And since full-spectrum oils are a bit more rare, this is quite a rare sight in the CBD oil industry.
Just like any gummy, these are delicious little sweets that you can munch on when you get a sugar craving. That being said, don't take more than one or two as each has about 25 mg of CBD. Plus, eating sugar before bed is less than ideal.
But if you just want help relaxing a bit and want to try CBD out, it's quite the enticing choice. Plus, they're a broad-spectrum CBD product, meaning that there are multiple relaxing compounds in each of the lemon or apple gummies you decide to munch on.
In terms of using the patches, it's as simple as it can get. Just place the patch on dry and shaved skin for five seconds and you're good to go! Ideally, you should keep it on for more than 12 hours however, they can fall off sometimes.
This is also one of the weakest CBD products we've featured so far, with every patch only having around 15 mg of CBD. However, they can last up to 36 hours and present an ideal solution for someone who just wants to dip their toes into the CBD world!
That's right. Not only do you get the CBD drops we've been fussing about but it also comes with a Panda mask. And we at The Sleep Advisors are big fans of Panda! With a bamboo construction, these masks are as light as air and arguably just as breathable.
However, they do also do their job and keep things nice and dark. So, combining this mask with our favourite CBD oil seems like the ultimate way to secure the best night's sleep you've ever had.
Now that you've seen what the best CBD oils are in our book, let's talk about how we made our decision. Or, more precisely, what you should look for when trying to find the best CBD product on the market. Of course, these are mostly going to be generalizations but they should give you a rough idea of what to look for.
When it comes to CBD products, they generally come in 3 different types and in 3 different categories. So, knowing exactly what to expect can help you choose the ideal product for you. First, let's go over the three different types.
A CBD product is called an isolate if it only contains CBD. They're ideal for people who don't want any traces of THC whatsoever or any other compound that comes from the hemp plant. You'll often find products such as pure CBD oil in this category and they're generally a bit cheaper than the other two types.
Broad-spectrum CBD products utilize multiple compounds and cannabinoids from the hemp plant, only extracting the THC. That being said, it's possible to find small trace amounts of THC in certain broad-spectrum CBD products. Generally, the main selling point of broad-spectrum CBD products is that they're more potent than CBD isolate.
This is due to a phenomenon called “the entourage effect”. It stipulates that the added compounds better draw out the positive effects of the CBD compound. However, since there's a chance that THC is present, we suggest inspecting the label closely and making sure that everything is checked and legal in the UK. After all, you don't want to get into trouble over CBD oil drops.
When getting a full-spectrum CBD oil (or other CBD product), it's important to know that THC will be present. So, it's extremely important to look for reputable CBD companies that have been approved and analyzed by a third party.
The THC content is very low (usually below 0.1%) and answers differ depending on who you ask about whether one can get a high. The UK market has a few product lines in this CBD industry, so take your time and make sure they're legitimate. As far as CBD health benefits are concerned, there have been studies that suggested that the “entourage effect” is especially potent in this case and can lead to certain health benefits.
Now that you hopefully know which CBD type you'd like, let's talk about the second big question – how do you want to use it? To be more specific, in what form do you want to use CBD? There are three main categories with slight differences in use and some methods are probably going to be more appealing to you than others.
CBD oils are probably the most common form you'll find all three types in. They usually come in small bottles with pippets that allow for precise measurements. And people usually either just swallow the oil, put it under their tongue or mix it into their food.
It's the most direct way to ingest CBD as well since there are usually no added compounds or substances. However, we could see why a hemp CBD oil might be off-putting to some. Vape oils also fall under this category but we can't encourage you to take up that nasty habit.
If even the best CBD oil seems to off-putting for you, getting an edible is a good workaround. CBD edibles are a huge category that we could likely dedicate an entire article to. The most common products in this category are gummies and capsules. However, there are many other variants.
You have CBD coffees, CBD sodas, CBD food enhancers, and even CBD coconut oil! So, if oils aren't your cup of tea but you still want to try out CBD, rest assured that there are plenty of options on the market.
While the previous two categories are mostly about personal preference, this one is a bit more unique. This is because you don't actually ingest the CBD orally but rather absorb it through your skin topically. As you could imagine, CBD beauty products mostly come in the form of different creams that you massage into your skin.
But there are also fringe categories, like mouth sprays, that are closer to the previous category. Even the main selling point is slightly different, as these CBD products are specifically marketed to combat muscle and joint pain, as opposed to being a sleep aid. And the best CBD beauty products UK has to offer also reportedly help your skin stay young and fresh.
Although there have been no reports of overdosing from CBD, it's still important to take note of exactly how much you're ingesting. And this is because of a few main reasons. For one, so that you can keep your dosage consistent when swapping to a different CBD brand or product.
For example, one CBD oil can contain 30mg per droplet while a different one might have double the amount. And when it comes to any type of supplement (or medication), sticking to the same dosage should make it easier for your body to properly absorb them.
Secondly, on a more practical note, this cues you in on whether you're getting a good deal. If you're not going for a full-spectrum CBD oil and just want the Cannabidiol component, a higher concentration could mean a better bang for your buck.
When it comes to any product that you're going to ingest, making sure that it's safe is a must. But this is even more important once things such as the cannabis plant are involved. Not only for your safety but also for the legality of the product as a whole.
So, try to search for reputable brands in UK's CBD industry that ideally also have some certification. For example, brands like Vibes CBD link the lab analysis for each of their products. This is what you want to see! After all, there's no point in taking CBD to calm down if you then have to stress about whether you just broke the law or ingested something unsafe.
Now that you have general knowledge of what the CBD industry has to offer, let's go through a few tips that can make the purchasing process a lot easier and make the end result as good as it can be.
By this point, you might be wondering whether getting CBD products is even worth it. Legally it feels like a grey area and you might not see what all the fuss is about. However, CBD products might be worth looking into. There doesn't seem to be foolproof evidence yet, but research does suggest that CBD products can have the following benefits.
