CBD oil (also known as Cannabidiol) is currently enjoying a bit of a breakthrough.
Until recently, it was very difficult to source. However, you can now pick up extracts in health food shops on most British high streets.
This surge in popularity is largely thanks to the public having a more open mind to the potential health benefits of cannabis/hemp extracts.
The oil may be useful in alleviating the symptoms of a wide variety of health issues. Yet for now, it’s important to remember that the market is unregulated, and the quality of CBD oils can vary enormously.
On this site, we review what we believe to be the highest quality pharma grade CBD oils and products you will find on sale in the UK.
If you take a trip to your local health food shop you’ll see that a good proportion of the products they stock will be oral sprays. While these sound handy, they aren’t the quickest way of absorbing cannabidiol.
There are a number alternatives for oral use. A popular option is to ‘drop’ the oil directly underneath the tongue (the best place for efficient absorption).
Most oral drops don’t carry a huge amount of flavour – and a droplet is such a tiny amount that any taste will be pretty tricky to even detect.
Another popular – and arguably even more efficient way of delivering cannabidiol is via CBD vape pens and vaporizers. You’ll need specialist CBD vape oils for this. These are increasingly available and can be excellent quality.

How Much Should I Take?
This is where it becomes a little more tricky. What helps one person may not be enough for another, so just like taking any other supplement, the best way to find that sweet spot is to gradually increase the dosage. Start very low and work your way up.
