Your guide to the best CBD oils

cbd oils uk
Heard about CBD oil and want to give it a go? Read our guide on the best CBD oils we sell here at Holland & Barrett and read real customer reviews to see which CBD oil could be most suited to you.
Intrigued by the naturally innovative world of CBD oil, but not quite sure where to start? 

We’ve put together a guide on the best CBD oils, including real reviews from our customers, to help you find one that will suit you.

First things first, what is CBD oil?


CBD oil, cannabidiol, is naturally present in hemp plants that are cultivated for nutritional use. It’s made by transforming hemp flowers and leaves into a ‘paste’ and extracting the CBD from it.1

How to use CBD safely


The Food Standards Agency (FSA), here in the UK recommends that healthy adults (with an average body weight of 70kg) don’t consume more than 10mg of CBD per day - that’s about 4-5 drops of 5% CBD oil.2 It is important to always check the product and never exceed the daily recommended dose as stated on the label. If you weigh less than 70kg you should consume less CBD oil.

CBD is not suitable for pregnant or breastfeeding women, children, prospective parents trying for a baby or by people taking medication. Before using any CBD products, it’s also best to check with your GP that they are safe for you to use and to make sure they don’t interact with any medication being taken.

What is the best CBD oil dosage?


If you haven’t used a CBD oil before, it’s recommended that you start with a lower potency product and a smaller dose. 

You may want to start with a dose that is smaller than 10mg, and slowly increase over a period of time, making sure to never exceed the safe recommendation stated on the product label. If you want to calculate this for yourself, multiply your body weight in kg by 0.15 e.g. 60kg x 0.15 = 9mg per day.

4 of the best CBD oils

1. The best CBD oil for beginners

Holistic Herb Premium CBD Oil Single Strength

Key benefits:
  • Absorbs fast: unique micro-emulsified CBD
  • THC free: 100% free of the psychoactive compound THC 
  • Modest dose: this CBD oil isn’t too strong (1.4mg of regular CBD oil per drop), so may be a good place to start for first-time users
What our customers have to say: 
Jeb1 - Excellent - 5/5 stars "This is a Excellent product, will definitely buy again."

SWHerts – Premium CBD oil. First Time Buyer – 5/5 stars “As a first-time buyer of CBD oil, I decided to try the ‘premium’ brand low dose oil. Easy to use, no leakage and no unpleasant taste. I would recommend this product."

2. The best CBD oil for regulars

Jacob Hooy CBD Oil 5%

Key benefits:
Top-quality formulation: made with care using only the highest quality raw materials Better taste: made using targeted extraction to remove chlorophyll, giving this oil a less bitter or earthy taste Easy to use: pop a few drops onto your tongue throughout the day, making sure not to exceed the daily limit Great for on the go: comes in a handy, small bottle that you can pop in your bag for when you’re out and about

What our customers have to say: 
LH100 – Great product - 5/5 stars “Great product, I usually buy when on offer. Love it.” Ali Saad - Very good - 5/5 stars “Very good quality and reasonable price.”

3. The best CBD oil spray for minty fresh breath


Key benefits:
  • Fresh taste: hate the taste of hemp? Try this minty spray instead for fresh breath + CBD!
  • Stronger dosage: each spray contains the equivalent of 4.95mg of regular CBD per dose
  • THC Free: every batch is tested to ensure there is no THC present (0.000%)
  • Can use out and about: a quick spray under the tongue and you’re done! This CBD spray is perfect for use ‘on the go’

What our customers have to say: 
REGT – CBD mint flavoured spray – 5/5 stars “Effective and controllable. The mint flavour is subtle and pleasant.”

GD1968 – Refreshing mint taste – 5/5 stars “I bought this in store and I am a regular CBD user. It has a refreshing taste which is what I was looking for as I do not enjoy the normal taste of CBD, I also liked the plastic seal around the cap which gave me comfort that it could not have been tampered with.”

RachL123 – Exceeds expectation – 5/5 stars “Bought this as I didn't like the taste of the normal oil. The mint taste is really nice and fresh and has no unpleasant aftertaste. Will definitely be using this from now on.”

4. The best tasting CBD oil spray

fourfive CBD Oil 1000mg Orange Flavour 30ml

Key benefits:
  • Delicious flavour: comes in a tantalisingly fruity orange flavour, masking the bitter, earthy taste of other CBD oils 
  • Great for intermediate users: the perfect choice for those who are already familiar with CBD
  • Easy to use: spray once onto the tongue up to twice a day and leave for 60 seconds before swallowing to allow for proper absorption
What our customers have to say:
Joe7O - CBD oil with a pleasant taste - 5/5 stars “I like that this spray tastes nice and it's a very convenient way of getting a quick dose of CBD just by spraying under your tongue.” 

Emmlou123 - Nice taste - 5/5 stars “Nice mild orange taste, not too overpowering. Easy to use, just spray under the tongue. I felt more relaxed after using”
