CBD oil has become incredibly popular over the last year or so. You’ve probably heard how it’s one of the most potent anti-inflammatories around, how it can reliably reduce anxiety, and even how it can relieve pain.
But not all CBD oils are equal. Some seem to be more effective than others. This could be for many reasons but the main ones are probably a lack of care and attention in the manufacturing process and companies attempting to cut corners in order to cash in on a lucrative market.
That’s why we have vetted the best CBD oils in the UK to help you pick the one that is right for you. All the brands featured take the utmost pride in their products and have crafted them with the aim of helping their customers in mind.
The following products are of the highest quality, they have been expertly formulated, and have undergone rigorous testing by third-party laboratories. We’ve also included the best value CBD oils in the UK, as well as some unique products from trusted brands.
Let us know in the comments if you’ve tried any of them or if you think there are any we’ve missed.
1. CBD Armour Silver (10ml -1,000mg CBD – £30)
CBD Armour’s Silver Full Spectrum CBD Oil is, as far as we can tell, the best value CBD oil in the UK. Each 10ml bottle contains 1,000mg of CBD and costs just £30. We haven’t found a better deal yet.
We also like CBD Armour Silver for its simplicity – it has just two ingredients, both derived from the cannabis plant: full spectrum hemp extract and organic hemp seed oil. It contains no other chemicals, flavours or preservatives. We appreciate this. Although the taste is not the best.
2. Hemptouch (10ml – 500mg CBD – £27.90)
Hemptouch is a leading Slovenian CBD brand that focuses on hemp-based skin care products. Their 500mg CBD oil, therefore, is designed to be gentle on the skin as well as good for it.
Again, just two ingredients make up this oil: full spectrum hemp extract and olive oil. It’s ideal for rubbing on sore joints, cuts and bruises, as well as taking under your tongue.
3. CBDistillery 2,500mg CBD Oil from Hemp Botanics (30ml – 2500mg CBD – Sale: £120)
The first CBD oil on our list that is made from American-grown hemp. CBDistillery uses hemp grown in Colorado, a state that has a legal recreational and medical cannabis market. Cannabis growing regulations are therefore tighter in the state, meaning the hemp grown there is of the highest quality.
This 30ml bottle contains whopping 2,500mg of CBD-rich hemp oil extracted from the some of the finest hemp plants in the world. It’s been mixed with MCT oil from coconuts to enhance its absorption. Check out London-based Hemp Botanics for more high-quality CBD products from America.
4. KannaSwiss Water Soluble Full Spectrum Hemp Extract from HempElf – (30ml – 150mg CBD – Sale: £40)
KannaSwiss is one of Switzerland’s best CBD brands. Since becoming one of the first to bring legal CBD flower and hash to Europe, they have now released an impressive range of CBD products made from the best Swiss hemp.
This Water Soluble Full Spectrum Hemp Extract, being sold by UK-based HempElf, is one of the first water-soluble CBD products in the UK. And according to their website, “water-soluble CBD that is ingested as a liquid is absorbed more directly by the body and so its effect is much more pronounced than its equivalent oil form.”
Therefore, while this 30ml bottle has a modest 150mg CBD content, it is approximately 4 times as powerful than an oil-based CBD product with an equivalent concentration. The taste isn’t horrible either.
5. Raised Spirit 10% CBD Oil (10ml – 1,000mg CBD – £64.99)
Founded by professional MMA fighter Nick Osipczak, Raised Spirit is made with athletes and active people in mind. Nick is passionate about the potential of hemp, especially since CBD was approved by the World Anti-Doping Agency, better known as the WADA.
Made with nothing but full spectrum hemp extract and hemp seed oil, this 10ml bottle contains 1,000 mg of CBD. And you can rest assure that each batch is accurately lab tested to ensure its suitability for athletes in all sports.
6. Blue Edition CBD Oil from CBD Brothers (10ml – 500mg CBD – £17.95)
One of the leaders of the UK CBD industry, CBD brothers are a good-willed and honest company who offer a superb range of CBD products at affordable prices. Their Blue Edition CBD Oil is made with a 25% CBD hemp extract from outdoor-grown, organic hemp plants, along with cold-pressed hemp seed oil.
It’s one of their most popular products and has exceptional reviews. All their products are made at their own specifically built laboratory located in Suffolk.
7. Love Hemp CBD Oil (10ml – 800mg – £49.99)
LoveHemp is another well-established UK CBD brand. And their great tasting 8% CBD oil is one of the most reliable and trusted products on the market.
A nice touch about their website is that third-party lab reports are clearly displayed alongside the product picture.
8. Pharmahemp 5% CBD Oil with Curcumin & Black Pepper from For The Ageless (10ml – 500mg CBD – £34.99)
This is a unique product in that it combines three other powerful ingredients to act alongside a hemp extract featuring a full range of cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids, and nutrients.
It’s are organic hemp extract, added curcumin from turmeric, black pepper (which is known to work synergistically with curcumin), and an olive oil base. For someone who wants the added effect of other therapeutic plants alongside a CBD-rich extract, there’s nothing comparable to this on the UK CBD market.
9. Organic CBD Coconut Oil from Raised Spirit (196ml – 1,000mg CBD – £59.99)
Not your traditional CBD oil which is taken via a dropper. This is hemp-infused organic coconut oil with 1,000 mg of CBD. As it’s made with coconut oil, its solid at room temperature. It’s perfect for cooking with, throwing into smoothies and coffee (blended), or using on your skin, hair and teeth.
Again, UK-based Raised Spirit feature on this list. This is because they have a top class range of products and a company ethos we respect. We’ve also heard they are coming out with a hemp protein powder that actually tastes good!
10. CBD Life Hemp Oil Spray – 400mg CBD+CBDa (10ml – 400mg CBD & CBDa – £24.95)
If using a small dropper is awkward or inconvenient for you, CBD Life has created a handy CBD oil spray. Instead of squeezing drops under your tongue, you simply spray a few times under your tongue.
Designed for new and experienced users alike, the spray contains 400mg of CBD and CBDa, which is the raw form of CBD (once CBDa is heated, it becomes CBD). CBDa offers its own medical benefits, which may add to the overall effect of the extract.
