For many people capsules are convenient and effective. You simply swallow the capsule and let it work its magic. Our capsules contain cannabidiol – a natural compound which is found in the cannabis plant, which will enhance your well-being, but won’t make you ‘high’.
However, this is where the similarities end. CBD and THC target different cannabinoid receptors within the body, producing very different effects. We’ve listed these effects, as well as other key differences between these two compounds, below:

You have probably heard of CBD or medical marijuana from the increased amount of media coverage that it has seen over recent months.
CBD oil is typically made using strains of hemp that are high in cannabinoids such as CBD, but low in THC. Because of this, most CBD oil either contains no THC at all, or only a tiny quantity of THC that cannot trigger any of the known psychoactive effects of cannabis.
Although research into CBD is still in its early stages, the data that’s currently available tends to show that CBD may have a range of interesting and unique health benefits.
Blessed CBD is committed to bringing our UK customers the #1 CBD products on the market. Our full-spectrum CBD tinctures, CBD gummies, CBD capsules and CBD creams come packed with an array of beneficial cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids. Plant-powered goodness designed for general well-being. But don’t just take our word for it… see what our customers say below.
The cannabis plant and CBD (cannabidiol) may be new to many in the UK, but it’s not to us here at Blessed CBD. The CBD market has exploded in the United States, and the UK market is doing its best to catch up. As CBD gains steam here, we aim to be at the forefront, pushing it steadily along so more UK residents can experience CBD that other parts of the world are taking advantage of.
Our family-run operation is not fazed by competition, the desire for high profits or the need to be known around the world. What we don’t like is low-quality CBD oil being passed off as beneficial and effective.
For a while, we considered sitting on the side-lines, as our family-run operation doesn’t have the massive budgets corporations have at their disposal, but soon realised we are passionate enough to make an impact in the lives of people.
This is not to be confused with hemp oil used in food and beauty, which is made from the seeds of the same plant.
The oils were much thicker and darker in consistency than others I’ve tried, with a potent taste. The blue edition cannabis sativa strain worked an absolute treat, allowing my muscles and mind to completely relax and aiding deep, undisturbed sleep after taking around 5 drops.
Is CBD oil legal in the UK?
Ok so this CBD oil is not going to be winning any taste competitions anytime soon. As the instructions suggest it is best not to swallow for as long as possible after you ingest. Squeeze the pipette under your tongue with 10 drops per day as the absolute maximum. Our tester suggests keeping a tasty treat on hand or at least some water to disguise the acrid taste. But as for the effects, that’s where this CBD oil hits its stride.
If you’d like to support a smaller boutique company, Holistic Hemp fits the bill. Using plants grown on small European farms, the pesticide and chemical free flowers are handpicked (unlike most on the market) meaning the oil is high quality. It even has a full floral flavour (thanks to the plants they choose) that offers a pleasant taste without interfering with the benefits. Offering 5, 10, 15 and 20 per cent options in various forms, this brand mixes hemp with cannabis seed carrier oil to create a full-spectrum product containing a variety of cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids.
Even if you opt for the mildest strain, thanks to its full-spectrum profile, you’ll still get that powerful hit and the full ‘entourage’ effect of additional terpenes and flavouroids, making the investment worthwhile. Another thing we love about Blessed is how transparent the company is about its processes and lab results – a must when purchasing CBD.
