The CBD industry is growing so fast in the UK; it’s almost unbelievable that cannabis was entirely illegal just a few years ago. Now, Cannabidiol supplement is available in many forms as a supplement and sold over the counter prescription-free.
Today the problem is no longer unavailability, but rather finding your perfect option out of the hundreds of brands/ products in the market. So, here are the top 5 CBD Oils in the UK today.
Firstly, CBD is one of over 80 cannabinoids found in cannabis. It is more abundant in hemp than marijuana, which is why hemp is often the go-to cannabis variety for CBD extraction. CBD does not have the “high” effect of THC (more abundant in marijuana than hemp).
CBD oil, therefore, is simply CBD that has been extracted from cannabis and infused into a carrier oil. Most popular oils used include hemp seed oil and coconut oil. Hemp seed oil, or simply hemp oil, is not the same as CBD oil. CBD can also be infused into other substances, including drinks, topical gels, gummies, chocolate, cakes, capsules and sprays.
CBD products, including CBD oil, are legal in the UK so long as the TCH content is no more than 1 mg of THC per finished products. This THC limit is intended to ensure that CBD products do not get you high or interfere with your daily activities.
CBD Shopy, an online retailer of high-quality CBD products that lists only the best, lab-tested brands, also has two CBD products of their own, they offer both CBD oil and CBD capsules in a full spectrum formulation through a partnership with one of the UK’s leading CBD manufacturers. Their CBD oil comes in two bottle sizes – 500mg and 1000mg – while their CBD capsules come in 600mg bottles.
Their products are created in a British ISO-certified facility and from organically-grown, non-GMO, European hemp. They use the CO2 extraction method, so you know their products have no impurities. Besides, you can use the batch number on every bottle to look up the lab results. CBD Shopy’s CBD products are also vegan-friendly.

The gummies are also third-party lab tested and the lab report can be found online using the batch number on each bottle. They guarantee 20 mg of CBD per gummy and zero impurities.
