What is CBD?
CBD is one of over 100 chemicals found in the Cannabis Sativa plant. Unlike its counterpart Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), CBD does not produce a ‘high’ and is used in a range of medicines.
CBD is a malleable compound that can easily be formulated into a range of different products. Many of these vary in quality and efficacy. The most useful methods of taking CBD remain CBD Oils (when held under the tongue) and CBD Skincare.
Both Boots and Holland and Barrett have a range of CBD products. However, this review will focus mainly on CBD Oils, which can be found in both Holland and Barrett and Boots. This is because they are the most bioavailable – biologically efficient – ways to take CBD.
