CBD oil (also known as Cannabidiol) is currently enjoying a bit of a breakthrough.
Until recently, it was very difficult to source. Now, you easily pick up cannabis extracts in health 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 and hemp-derived 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 largely unregulated, and the quality of CBD oils can vary enormously.
We encourage you to read our reviews. We continually strive to present you the highest quality pharmaceutical grade CBD oils and related products you’ll find on sale anywhere in the UK.
If you take a trip to your local health shop you’ll see that a good proportion of the products they stock will be oral sprays. While these may 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 should be difficult to detect.
Another popular – and arguably even more efficient way of delivering cannabidiol – is via CBD vape pens and vaporizers. You’ll need CBD vape oils for this purpose. These are increasingly available and you don’t need a special set-up.

How Much You Should Take
This is where it becomes a little more tricky. What helps one person may not be enough for someone else. Just like taking any other food supplement, the best way to find that “sweet spot” is to gradually increase the dosage. Start very low and work your way up.
