Top 5 UK CBD Oil Brands for 2022!



The CBD supplement market is huge and is expected to get bigger, but the biggest brands and companies in the cannabis supplement industry usually come from North America, in the legal heartlands of the cannabis industry like Colorado USA and regions of Canada.

Although the industry is booming in the US, new markets are quickly emerging that are proving to be popular, such as the CBD oil industry in the UK. CBD products were very popular in the UK throughout 2020 and the trend will continue in 2021.

In this updated 2021 Buying Guide we will be providing our suggestions for the top rated and novel food compliant CBD oil products for UK consumers.

What are the benefits of CBD?
You may have read or heard that people use CBD for a variety of reasons. There have been many studies on the effects of CBD, but conclusions about the specific effects of cannabidiol supplementation are still to come.

Is CBD Natural?
Yes, CBD is a naturally occurring compound that comes straight from the cannabis plant. Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of the most famous of the over 100 naturally occurring cannabinoids found in cannabis plants. It is a 21-carbon terpenophenolic compound that is formed from a cannabidiolic acid precursor upon decarboxylation, although it can also be made synthetically. It is believed that CBD and other cannabinoids interact with an endogenous cannabinoid system (the “endocannabinoid system”) found in various systems and organs of the body in humans and other mammals.

Is CBD legal in the UK?
Yes, as long as the THC content in any CBD product is less than 0.01% or “THC-free”. CBD products are legal to buy and sell in the UK as long as they are made from any of 63 EU approved industrial hemp strains.

Will CBD “Get Me High”?
No, CBD has no psychoactive properties, so it will not make you feel “high”.


1. Canabido CBD

Five years ago, Canabidol decided that the only way to guarantee their customers the best CBD was to do everything yourself: from seeds to shelves.

So determined were they to accomplish their mission that they even spent years building a facility to extract CBD from their own organically grown Cannabis sativa L., based here in the UK.

The multi-award-winning Canabidol was launched in 2016 and is one of the UK’s oldest CBD supplement brands. With CBD food supplements and a range of CBD cosmetics that meet the high demands on product accuracy and quality, Canabidol is an exclusive pharmacy range that includes oils, cosmetics, capsules and vape oil.

They were proud to announce that in 2021 to date they have donated over £ 3,000 in combined cash and product donations.

The oil itself is of good quality, all grown in Europe, with full laboratory certification and registration from the Cannabis Trades Association UK. While their oils are nothing special, there aren’t any downsides that we were able to find either. Just solid, consistent goodness.

5. Naked CBD

Hide & Seek CBD was developed by Harry Ephremsen, who used CBD oil after a period of fear at university, and wants to stay ahead of the competition by being transparent about complying with all strict laws surrounding CBD oil. CBD oil is extracted from naturally occurring hemp (Cannabis Sativa) and contains a wealth of nutrients and good properties, but is not addictive without an illegal “high”. It is believed to work in synergy with the body, having a calming effect and improving the quality of sleep, and is popular with those experiencing stress, insomnia, pain, and menopause. Hide & Seek CBD 750MG 10ml oil is organic, vegan, gluten and pesticide free. Hide & Seek also sells other CBD products handpicked by Harry.

Hyatt in Incline announces new treatment menu at Stillwater Spa



INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. – Hyatt Regency Lake Tahoe Resort, Spa and Casino, the only full-service waterfront resort in North Lake Tahoe, announces a new treatment menu at the award-winning Stillwater Spa & Salon. The new menu features customized treatment journeys that focus on the guest’s overall intention for their spa experience.

“We are thrilled to unveil a brand-new service menu at Stillwater Spa. The menu features holistic healing practices such as aromatherapy and Ayurveda paired with modern approaches for an elevated spa experience,” said Julie Orblych, director of spa and wellness at Hyatt Regency Lake Tahoe Resort, Spa and Casino. “My talented team and I have worked hard to create a menu of spa experiences designed to focus on wellness intentions. Rather than providing a list of traditional services, the menu matches guests with the services that best fit their overall wellness goals, whether that’s finding a sense of calm or balance from a massage, or seeing a glowing or hydrated result from a facial.”

Stillwater Spa’s updated service menu features five new massages guided by intention including “Balancing,” “Calm,” “Immunity,” “Renew,” “Love,” and “Unity.”

The “Balancing” massage uses Ayurveda dosha balancing techniques while utilizing warm herbal-infused oil. The “Calm” intention massage is designed to promote a sense of overall wellbeing with aromatherapy featuring lavender bergamot, clary sage, and chamomile to comfort and calm. The “Immunity” intention utilizes a relaxing massage that incorporates essential oils traditionally used to boost the immune system, and the “Renew” service is ideal for travel fatigue with refreshing and invigorating aromatherapy. Finally, the “Love” service inspires self-care and is designed to encourage a sense of joy, and “Unity” is a couples’ massage designed to enhance overall balance of the mind, body, and soul.

Each massage option can be enhanced with a deep tissue muscle renewal, or the application of CBD oil to help further relieve muscle pain or tension.

The new facial options include the “Indulgence” anti-aging facial that features a protein-rich caviar and powerful marine actives to firm and refine skin tone. The Ultimate Hydrafacial treatment includes lymphatic drainage, LED light therapy, and a hydrating algae gel mask.

The “Rejuvenate” facial option uses Intraceuticals Oxygen to naturally cool and calm the skin followed by the application of concentrated serums, and the “Glow” option features a super charge of Vitamin C combined with an AlphaBeta® Professional Peel System.

Guests can also select from two signature experiences. The “Peace” signature experience includes a stress relieving neck, shoulder, scalp and focused foot massage while wrapped in warm linens steep in an herbal detox infusion. The “Harmony” signature experience incorporates the use of a bioacoustics mat, which delivers low frequency sound pulsations designed to provide a deep acoustic massage for joint and tissue relaxation.

Additionally, Stillwater Spa offers a selection of updated body treatments. The services include the “Refresh” body treatment consisting of a full body exfoliation followed by a hydrating moisturizer; the “Relief” body treatment which includes a powerful blend of water-soluble broad-spectrum CBD, and flotation therapy sessions utilizing “Pearl,” the resort’s spacious float orb.

Taking CBD with herbal supplements could cause severe heart symptoms



Share on PinterestCombining different herbal supplements could lead to severe cardiac problems, a case study suggests. MEHAU KULYK/SCIENCE PHOTO LIBRARY/Getty Images

  • Using herbal supplements, including derivatives of cannabis, is becoming more and more popular.
  • Some supplements are easy to get over the counter and are not as highly regulated as other medications.
  • A recent case study demonstrates that using certain supplements in excess can lead to severe heart problems.

People’s use of supplements has increased in recent years. Many supplements may carry a certain amount of health benefits, but as they are not regulated, people should also exercise caution.

A recent case report published in Heart Rhythm Case Reports demonstrates that the excessive use of certain substances such as hemp oil could lead to severe cardiac problems.

Supplements are readily available to consumers and can offer various health benefits. For example, dietary supplements provide more of the substances found in food, such as specific vitamins or minerals.

Unlike medications, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) does not offer as much regulation for dietary supplements.

dr Edo Paz, cardiologist and vice president of Medical at K Health, who was not involved in the study, explained the issue with supplements to Medical News Today:

Because the FDA regulates supplements differently than medications, the supplements are not well-studied, so the precise characteristics and side effects are not well known. You may even see variations in the preparation based on the distributor and batch.”

dr Paz said he encourages his patients to avoid supplements, out of a lack of solid data.

“If they do plan to use them, I do my best to research the possible side effects and drug-supplement interactions, but this is not always possible given the lack of data,” he added.

A few examples of common supplements include calcium, vitamin D, garlic, and ginkgo. Sometimes, supplements are a combination of many compounds, such as the supplement berberine, which may be helpful in the improvement of heart problems and gut health.

The CBD market

One group of supplements that have become quite popular are those derived from cannabis. A few examples of cannabis derivatives include hemp oil and cannabidiol (CBD).

Hemp oil has many potential benefits, including helping reduce muscle tension and stress and pain relief. Similarly, CBD may help with pain relief and may even help to reduce anxiety.

Currently, the FDA has only approved one derivative of CBD oil for medicinal use, Epidiolex, which can be used to treat seizures. Different derivatives of cannabis are still available as supplements, meaning that people can buy and use them without supervision from a medical professional.

The case report in question examined one 56-year-old woman and her severe symptoms that coincided with supplement use. She experienced episodes of syncope (fainting) and dizziness.

Upon cardiac evaluation, medical professionals discovered that she had low blood pressure and an abnormal heart rhythm called Torsade de Pointes. This particular disturbance in heart rhythm can become life threatening.

She also experienced a prolonged QTc, which indicates problems with the heart’s electrical signals. Prolonged QTc is often associated with Torsade de Pointes.

Her magnesium levels were also low, and after treatment with intravenous magnesium and saline fluids, her heart rhythm stabilized. Her personal medical history was unremarkable. But she revealed that she had been taking hemp oil that contained both CBD and cannabigerol (CBG).

She claimed to be taking it for stress-related reasons and was taking it at six times the recommended dose. She was also taking supplements containing berberine.

Doctors discontinued all of her supplement use while she was in the hospital. After five days, her heart rhythm returned to normal.

Based on data from this patient and their study of data surrounding these supplements, study authors think that these supplements caused the patient’s QTc prolongation.

dr Paz noted that the case showed “a frightening side effect of herbal supplements.”

“In this case, the patient used various supplements, which resulted in a cardiac electrical abnormality called QT prolongation. The patient even developed a feared and potentially deadly consequence of QT prolongation called torsades de pointe, which can degenerate to sudden cardiac death,” he told MNT.

dr Paz said that thanks to the clinical team the cause of these effects was identified, and the electrical abnormality resolved after the patient stopped taking them.

This particular case study examined supplement use in one individual and the potentially severe cardiac problems that may follow. However, it is essential to note that she took an exceptionally high amount of hemp oil.

The patient was also taking more than one supplement, so her heart problems likely cannot be strictly attributed to one of them.

Pharmacology expert Professor Gary Stephens from the University of Reading, who was also not involved in the study, noted to MNT that more clinical trials regarding the use of these supplements were needed because of the limited data.

We need to perform controlled clinical trials with properly defined medicines of standardized composition,” he said.

However, Prof. Stephens also pointed out that he was not aware of any adverse cardiovascular effects ascribed to CBD in clinical trials.

“I’m unfamiliar with berberine, but the authors point out themselves that it has been reported to cause the cardiac side effect in the title of the paper,” he added.

dr Stephen Alexander with the University of Nottingham, and a cannabis expert who was not involved in the study, said people should use supplements cautiously.

“I would not expect the use of CBD or hemp oil to have a widespread negative impact on cardiovascular health, but it does underline the need to respect these agents and to treat them seriously (rather than to exceed recommended doses or combine with other poorly characterized supplements),” he told MNT.

He said the study highlighted the need for greater awareness and education about the use of supplements, in particular those derived from cannabis.

Disclaimer: Professor Gary Stephens has done some consultancy work for Jazz Pharmaceuticals. Jazz Pharmaceuticals also bought out the company GW Pharmaceuticals, the company behind the multiple sclerosis treatment nabiximols, which was the first cannabis-based medication licensed in the UK Prof. Stephens has also received funding from GW Pharmaceuticals. dr Stephen Alexander has been recruited to the Scientific Advisory Board of Jazz Pharmaceuticals.
