Don’t let it bother you, though, because the CBD oil itself is exceptional, with a light, floral, almost fruity flavour that sinks in and kicks in fast. Bud and Tender themselves are also really open, very communicative online and fast to get back with any issues you might have. Trustworthy, receptive, with a good product.
There’s a lot of reasons to try Bud and Tender before they hit it big.
Edibles: Edibles are things like cookies and gummies. Easy to eat, and flavourful, edibles have the downside of holding a lot of calories, as well as having a fixed dosage.

A vegan CBD oil that’s organic as well as being completely gluten-free, Endoca raw is a fantastic choice if you’re someone who cares a little more about where their products come from and want to have the minimum negative impact on the world.
Some of the scientifically backed benefits of CBD are its effects on inflammation and the ability to get a restful night’s sleep.
4. Endoca Raw
Blessed CBD remains our top pick as the UK’s #1 CBD brand. This family-run CBD brand has shown consistency throughout 2019 to 2021, and takes our “best CBD oil UK” award.
What is the best CBD oil UK? This was one of the most popular questions asked online in the United Kingdom during the Covid-19 pandemic.
CBD oil has gained a huge following in the past two years, and as with any popular new product to reach the masses it’s important to read the fine print and do your research before buying.
For many, the flavour of CBD oil can be a real turn off – if you’re not into that straw-like hemp flavour (which many people aren’t), you might want to turn to Trip. Only recently launched in the UK, this brand isn’t just a pretty face (and trust us, it is – the packaging is the amongst the best-looking we’ve seen on the market). Offering a Wild Mint or Orange Blossom CBD oil tincture, both are blended with chamomile to create a more flavoursome experience without forgoing the substance.
The brand is completely transparent about its ingredients and actually offer certified batch reports on their website as well as 24/7 customer service.
Not your traditional CBD oil, OTO takes a more traditional wellness approach through its rollerball application. There are three varieties; Focus, Amplify and Balance that have different purposes.
Provacan CBD oil, 1200mg
If you’d like to support a smaller boutique company, Holistic Hemp fits the bill. Using plants grown on small European farms, the pesticide and chemical free flowers are handpicked (unlike most on the market) meaning the oil is high quality. It even has a full floral flavour (thanks to the plants they choose) that offers a pleasant taste without interfering with the benefits. Offering 5, 10, 15 and 20 per cent options in various forms, this brand mixes hemp with cannabis seed carrier oil to create a full-spectrum product containing a variety of cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids.
Offered in two different strengths, I found just four drops one hour before bed noticeably shortened the amount of time it took me to fall asleep. There was no drugged or heavy feeling but more akin to the sensation you have after getting a very long massage. It also helped alleviate cramps far better than my usual over-the-counter pill and hot water bottle combo.
Extracted from organically-grown hemp, these oils are THC free and come in two strengths – 300mg and 1000mg – so are suitable for both new and seasoned users. They’re also third-party lab tested, meaning you can rest assured they’re high quality as well as vegan and gluten and palm oil free, making them inclusive to almost all diets and preferences.
CBD oil cannot “get you high” as the Home Office “only issues licences for cultivation of plants from approved seed types with a THC content not exceeding 0.2%”.
The oil has a natural taste with a faint orange aroma. The aftertaste is bitter but less so than some of the others on this list. After three drops under your tongue, three times a day, our tested immediately noticed better and longer sleeps as well as reduced pain from current and residual injury.
