However, it’s still worth noting that the industry is in its infancy, and if you buy quality CBD oils, gummies or anything else from unknown companies, you might not end up with something pure.
Some of the scientifically backed benefits of CBD are its effects on inflammation and the ability to get a restful night’s sleep.
To this end, their plants are grown all across Europe in small farms, which are held to strict standards with no pesticides or chemicals used in the process.
What can CBD oil do for me?
Edibles: Edibles are things like cookies and gummies. Easy to eat, and flavourful, edibles have the downside of holding a lot of calories, as well as having a fixed dosage.
Each batch comes with a third-party lab certification, so you know exactly what you’re getting, but that’s par for the course with our top choices. Still, it adds another layer of confidence.
Fairly new into the UK CBD space, Hempura are making waves with their wide variety of products and open approach to information.
But why are so many UK consumers turning to something that, in all actuality, is still relatively untested? What can it do for you, and how and where should you be taking it? Is it worth becoming part of the CBD life? With popular high street shops in the United Kingdom now also stocking CBD products, how do you know which one to choose?
There was no lightheadedness or hallucinogenic feeling that people assume will come with CBD oil (it is of course not THC and shouldn’t make you feel this way), but instead seemed to push all negative thoughts to one side. Some weird dreams may have been caused by the oil – or the current uncertain times – but that is seen only as a positive and was relished by the tester.

Holistic Herb Premium CBD Oil Single Strength 15ml
The ideal introduction to the world of CBD, luxury wellness label CBII has crafted this dynamic duo set. It contains both a 2 per cent and 5 per cent oil, so you can sample the lesser concentration for around a week or so before moving onto the higher percentage.
There are measurements on the pipette if you want to ensure that you are taking an accurate dose.
The oil itself doesn’t have a great taste. In fact, of all the CBD oils that we sampled, this was the most marijuana-like of flavours. There are some pros to this, of course, as a placebo, the medicinal taste really felt like something was working and it was doing the job. Keep a drink or a flavoured something on hand to help remove the taste straight after.
This brand also sells a range of quality edibles, for those who don’t like the flavour. The only downside is the fairly hefty price tag based on the size and strength of the product.
