Tried this as not able to get my usual brand and am I glad I did really good product and the price is quite competitive will certainly be buying it again
I bought this product in hope it would ease my overthinking which in turn would lead to better sleep and it seems to be working very well. A great product at a reasonable price!
Love it. Was sceptical when I bought it, but it really does have a great lime taste. Will be buying it again.
My husband is sleeping better and not snoring so much. Yay, win win!!
For many people, tinctures are the most familiar and preferred method of consuming CBD. Perhaps the reason oil tinctures are so popular is because you can easily dial in your ideal serving size. Finding the amount of CBD that’s right for you may require some trial and error. Additionally, adjusting your serving size is relatively easy by adding or subtracting a few drops. Everyone is different, and we all have different factors that affect bioavailability, including weight, height, body mass, and tolerance, to name a few. Using a tincture allows you to experiment a bit more to dial in the exact amount of CBD that fits your needs.
CBDfx has two different oil tinctures, each made with pure, natural CBD oil (with the transparency of third-party lab reports). Each oil has its own unique profile that takes advantage of the Entourage Effect, the unique interaction between the hemp plant’s different chemical compounds when they are consumed together. The CBD + CBG Oil Wellness Tincture blends CBD with CBG, as well as curcumin, coenzyme Q10, and a proprietary terpene blend for a wonderful, health-boosting daily wellness product. The Hemp Tincture features pure, natural CBD, with coconut-derived MCT oil for faster absorption. This provides a restful, calming effect which is great for kicking back and relaxing, and even getting ready for sleep.
When we’re talking about CBD oil, we’re talking about the oil extracted from the buds, leaves and stems of the hemp plant (so, not hemp seed oil). Hemp oil is rich in cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids, and has many wellness benefits due to the interaction these compounds (CBD, in particular) have with the body’s endocannabinoid system.
CBD oils contain this rich, robust hemp oil and usually some sort of carrier oil, such as coconut-derived MCT oil, so that your body can better absorb the CBD. Beyond that, it’s simply a matter of dialing in additional ingredients to serve the purpose of a particular product, such as added CBG, curcumin and coenzyme Q10, in our daily Wellness CBD Oil.
CBD oil gives you a great base, from which you can build out a variety of wellness products. As mentioned, CBD oil itself is rich in cannabinoids (including CBD, CBG, CBN, CBC, and trace amounts of THC), terpenes, flavonoids, and healthy fatty acids. This robust cannabis hemp oil delivers a wide variety of calming wellness benefits through its interaction with the body’s endocannabinoid system. The endocannabinoid system helps the body to maintain homeostasis, or balance, in a variety of organs and systems, most notably the central and peripheral nervous systems. This interaction helps the body to regulate such crucial functions as mood, memory, immune function, motor control, sleep, appetite, pain and stress management, and much more. This beneficial interaction is why CBD has become such a popular wellness supplement.
It’s worth noting that when your cannabis oil product is made with broad spectrum CBD, you can take advantage of the Entourage Effect. Broad spectrum CBD is the oil that is directly culled from the plant, but with a filtration pass to remove detectable amounts of THC. Nearly all other cannabinoids remain in the oil, from CBC to CBG and a hundred others! The Entourage Effect is the phenomenon in which CBD and other hemp compounds, when taken together, actually bolster one another’s effects. So, in the case of a broad spectrum CBD product, the CBD and other cannabinoids will actually work harder for you than they would on their own, giving you a more potent product — resulting in more health benefits for you!

Sublingual CBD oils are great, because they let you dial in the exact amount of CBD in your serving, unlike products like capsules or gummies, which have a pre-measured serving size. If this is your first time taking an oil tincture, here’s a quick primer on how to take CBD oil.
Read the label of your CBD hemp oil product carefully to determine the recommended dosage. That doesn’t mean this is the perfect CBD dosage for you, necessarily. We all have different levels of bioavailability — that is, the amount and rate at which we absorb cannabidiol. If you’re trying CBD for the first time, begin with a low dosage in order to help gauge the effects of your CBD product. The recommended serving size for both of our CBD tinctures is a single 1mL dropper. So, for your first time, we recommend trying just half a dropper to see how this particular CBD product affects you.
Your body will absorb the CBD in a couple of ways. First and foremost, it’s important to hold the CBD hemp dropper under your tongue for 60 seconds in order for the CBD to be absorbed into your bloodstream through the capillaries of your mouth. This will get the CBD into your system much quicker than if you had simply swallowed it, which would mean waiting for the CBD to be absorbed through your digestive tract. Of course, once you swallow the CBD oil, it will also travel through your digestive system, giving you extended benefits.
Make sure not to drink anything for about 10 minutes after you take your sublingual CBD oil. This way, the capillaries of your mouth will continue to soak in any residual cannabidiol.
Don’t expect to feel the CBD effects immediately. Sublingual CBD oil products can take 15–30 minutes to kick in, depending on bioavailability factors (including height, weight, and other factors). It’s also important to understand what your CBD drops were designed to do. For instance, if you take our CBD + CBG Oil Wellness Tincture, don’t expect to relax or unwind. CBD Wellness Oil is designed for focus and daily wellness benefits, not relaxation. If you know what your drops are supposed to do, and understand bioavailability rates for CBD oils, you can better manage your expectations.
Now, it’s just a matter of whether or not your CBD serving size was the correct dosage for you.
If just a half dropper of CBD tincture drops was enough for you to feel the effects, then you’ve found your own personal “Goldilocks” serving size: the one that’s just right for you! Don’t worry that it’s only half of a dropper. In fact, you should celebrate the fact that you can stretch out your CBD supply much farther than other people can.
A half dropper of CBD Hemp Tincture wasn’t quite enough to chill you out? Don’t worry — and don’t reach for the bottle to grab an extra drop! If you get impatient and take a second dose of CBD oil, you won’t know whether you’re feeling the effects of the second serving or the first serving kicking in a little later than expected. And you may accidentally build up an unnecessary tolerance to CBD, as well.
When you try a new CBD product, you should be prepared to under-dose on the first day. That’s okay. Tomorrow, after the first CBD oil drop has worked its way out of your system, you can try again with a higher dose (three-fourths of a hemp oil dropper or a full dropper). Then, you’ll know for certain what did and didn’t work.
You can also bypass the whole sublingual method completely and simply swallow your CBD oil. Many people, in fact, add CBD oil drops to their coffee or whip up a CBD smoothie. This works perfectly fine, as well. Just know that when you take your drops as an edible, absorbing the CBD through your digestive system rather than beneath the tongue, it will take longer to feel the effects (30 minutes to two hours, on average).
Because of CBD’s interaction with CB2 receptors in the body, research has shown its potential effectiveness for inflammation and pain management. Anecdotally, we know that people all over the world have been using hemp oil for years to deal with minor aches and pains in the muscles and joints, as well as inflammation and skin irritation. However, as research on the effects of hemp and CBD are still ongoing, the UK government does not allow CBD brands to give medical advice on its use.
The calming properties of cannabidiol have been used for millennia to settle the nerves and help people deal with stres.
When you shop for any CBD product in the UK, you should look for purity and potency in the CBD itself, as well as any complementary ingredients. At CBDfx, we only use non-GMO cannabis hemp and we only use clean extraction methods, leaving no residues behind in the CBD oil. That means our UK products are free from harmful chemicals, such as heavy metals, pesticides, GMOs, and solvent residues. And you can verify the purity and potency of every one of our CBD UK products by looking at the independent, third-party lab reports we provide on our UK website (known as a Certificate of Analysis, or COA). We also use only natural ingredients, such as coconut-derived MCT oil and natural flavouring, in our products.
CBD oil drops are great for providing the calming wellness benefits of powerful cannabinoids, including CBD, CBG, CBC, and more. While we can’t legally make medical recommendations for our CBD products, we can tell you that many people take cannabidiol oil products to help with anxiety, stress, pain, sleep, and other issues.
CBD oil held beneath the tongue for 60 seconds generally takes about 15 minutes before you begin to feel the effects. This time can vary depending on bioavailability factors, such as weight, height, body mass, metabolism, and so forth.
Depending on personal bioavailability factors, the effects of a sublingual CBD drops approximately last between two and six hours.
Hemp oil products are especially handy for measuring out the exact amount of CBD that serves your needs. Not everyone has the same tolerance for CBD products, so being able to determine your own perfect CBD dosage is a big plus for some people.
Full spectrum CBD oil is the hemp oil that is initially extracted from the plant, containing all the cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids, and healthy fatty acids. This includes tiny trace amounts of THC. Some prefer not to use a CBD oil product that contains any THC, and so when that THC is filtered out, the resulting oil is called broad spectrum CBD oil. CBD isolate is CBD with all other plant matter removed, leaving only 99% pure CBD.
Only CBD products below the THC threshold of less than 0.2% are legal in the UK. This means that true full spectrum CBD, which can contain up to 0.3% THC, is illegal. Broad spectrum CBD, therefore, is the most potent CBD you can buy in the UK.
All of our CBD UK products contain less than 0.2% THC, which is too little to be psychoactive. Therefore, our cannabis oils cannot get you high.
As mentioned above, a suggested serving size for our cannabidiol oils is one dropper. However, if you’re trying one of our oils for the first time, we suggest trying half a serving to help gauge your tolerance to CBD.
Yes! We only use vegan ingredients in our UK hemp oils.
