Our feedback and several independent reviews suggest that our oil is the best cbd oil uk in terms of effectiveness. It is raw cbd oil uk, which means it is not heated and contains a balance of cannabinoids and terpenes similar to what is found naturally in the hemp plant, which is optimal for the entourage effect.
Our CBG Oil UK is another highly effective oil that seems to be much more potent than CBD oil uk, and also seems to have a different effect. Different balances of cannabinoids work better for different people, so one person may have better results with a CBD dominant oil and another may have better results with a CBG/CBD mixture. We recommend trying both to see what works for you.

This product contains 250mg of full spectrum CBD, a range of organic plant extracts and has a calming effect. Suitable for all skin types, we are confident that this product will replace and outperform and face or body cream you currently have.
What is CBD?
CBD (Cannabidiol) is one of over 120 naturally occurring cannabinoids found in Cannabis or Hemp plants. For those of you who don’t know already, Hemp is a variety of the Cannabis Sativa L plant which tends to have low levels of THC and high levels of CBD. Unlike THC, CBD will not get you high and studies have found that it is perfectly safe for regular human consumption.
A cannabinoid is any chemical that binds to or affects cannabinoid receptors such as CB1 and CB2 in the brain and body. The three main groups of cannabinoids are phytocannabinoids, endocannabinoids and synthetic cannabinoids.
Phytocannabinoids are cannabinoids found in the Cannabis Sativa L plant, however, cannabinoids in fresh plant matter are in acidic forms such as: CBDa, THCa, CBCa and CBGa. When these acidic forms are exposed to heat or light, they transform into CBD, THC, CBC and CBG. This transformation is known as decarboxylation.
Endocannabinoids are cannabinoids that are produced naturally within the bodies of nearly every animal organism. The two most important endocannabinoids are anandamide and 2-arachidonoylglycerol. Endocannabinoids and cannabinoid receptors are the two pillars of the endocannabinoid system, which controls vital bodily functions such as our immune system, mood, memory, appetite, sleep patterns and pain. Interestingly, CBD has a very similar chemical structure to anandamide.
The final group, synthetic cannabinoids, are as the name suggests, cannabinoids that have been produced synthetically in a laboratory. One example of a synthetic cannabinoid is dronabinol which is the active ingredient in MARINOL, a medicine that has been used to prevent nausea, vomiting, weight-loss and loss of appetite.
What is CBG Oil?
CBG is known as the 'stem cell cannabinoid' or the 'mother of all cannabinoids'. This is because CBG is the original molecule that all other cannabinoids come from.
Over time, the acidic form of CBG - CBGa, breaks down into CBDa. CBCa and THCa. When subject to heat or naturally over time, these acidic forms begin to convert to CBD, CBC and THC.
CBG Oil is very expensive to make as the hemp plant only produces very low levels of CBG, normally less than 1% of the plant's total weight. This means much more raw materials and work are needed to create an oil with significant levels of CBG.
The most effective CBG oils, like our CBG Hemp Oil, contain a 1:1 ratio of CBD and CBG. This gives them a powerful entourage effect and makes them incredibly potent.
Is CBD oil legal in the UK?
Does CBD get you high?
No, unlike THC, CBD is non will not get you high. CBD is non-intoxicating and the traces of THC (less than 0.05%) present in our products are far too low to have to produce any kind of high.
What is the Endocannabinoid System?
The Endocannabinoid System is a network of receptors which are present throughout the human body. It regulates vital bodily functions such as our immune system, mood, memory, appetite, sleep patterns and pain. Interestingly, CBD has a very similar chemical structure to anandamide, which plays a key role in regulating the endocannabinoid system.
Can CBD help with anxiety, depression, stress, pain, PTSD, or high blood pressure?
Due to UK law, we are not permitted to make any medical claims. If you have any doubts about the power of CBD. Have a quick search on the web and your questions will soon be answered. Many studies have shown that CBD helps with a wide range of issues.

Why is whole plant or full spectrum CBD better than CBD isolate?
Whole plant or full spectrum CBD allows the user to benefit from the 'entourage effect', which is when multiple active ingredients work in synergy to create a more powerful effect. Whole plant or full spectrum CBD contains trace elements of THC, CBDV, CBG, CBC, CBDA and terpenoids. CBD isolate is just pure CBD.

The size of the bottle doesn't matter if the CBD content is the same. If your optimum dose is 10mg, you would need 2 drops of a 1000mg, 10ml bottle. To get the same dose from a 1000mg, 30ml bottle you would need roughly 6 drops. In the end, the two bottles would last the same amount of time.
What is the difference between CBD Oil and CBD Hemp Oil?

The CBD content should be clearly visible on the label.

What is CBDa?
CBDa (Cannabidiolic acid) is the acidic form of CBD. The Hemp plant naturally produces CBDa, which then converts into CBD when subject to heat or light. This conversion is known as decarboxylation.
CBDa was previously deemed to be an inactive cannabinoid, which triggered many producers to focus on completely converting all of the CBDa to CBD in CBD oils.
However, more recent research is showing that CBDa not only plays a key role in the entourage effect and maximises the potency of CBD Oil, but also has its own unique benefits.
Our CBD Hemp Oils contain a healthy balance of CBD to CBDa which one of the reasons why they are so effective. To read more about CBDa, CLICK HERE.
What is a Whole Plant Extract?
As with a Full-Spectrum Extract, Whole Plant Extract means that the extract contains all, or nearly all of the compounds that naturally occur in the hemp plant.
