At Associated CBD we are a CBD Marketplace with one of the widest ranges of CBD products in the UK. This also means we get to try our fair share of the best CBD oils for pain, anxiety and sleep. CBD oils are gaining traction in supermarkets up and down the UK and that’s great news!

In this blog we review Tesco CBD oil, Boots CBD oil, Holland and Barrett CBD oil and check out the ranges available, the flavours on sale and also importantly in this day and age, the prices!

Boots CBD Oil

Of the range of Boots CBD oils, for us there is no better than the Love Hemp CBD range. Love Hemp CBD has grown as one of the best CBD oil brands in the industry with Anthony Joshua as the face of their campaigns. One of the most popular Love Hemp CBD oils on sales at Boots is the 3000mg extra strong CBD oil, premium hemp extract with MCT carrier oil. They are very high quality and have a very broad range of uses. We have many happy repeat customers using these particularly for those looking to reduce anxiety or get a better night’s sleep! If you have been looking for Boots CBD oil and are reading this then there is some added great news! At Associated CBD we have the same Boots CBD Love Hemp Oils far below their current RRP and a much wider range of flavours to choose from, not just natural!

Please check out the link to the full range below which is already £15 cheaper than buying in store, and includes our favourite CBD oil flavour of Peppermint in 3000mg format! A win win! 

You can use code NEWCUSTOMER10 at checkout for a further 10% off on top! What a bargain!

Boots CBD range also includes Dragonfly CBD oil as one of the very early additions to their range. But our customer base has certainly been much bigger repeat purchasers of the Love Hemp CBD range so this would be our focus.

Tesco CBD Oil

Much like with Boots CBD Oil, Tesco also stock the Love Hemp CBD range and the same details apply as above! You can get Love Hemp CBD oil at a cheaper price with next day delivery following the link above!

The Tesco CBD oil range is fairly limited with the likes of Vitality, Love Hemp and Cannaray, all good CDB brands in their own right. Cannaray CBD and Love Hemp are both focused on a premium quality CBD oil and that is our chosen route to stock. Tesco CBD oil range also includes many more lower strength Love Hemp CBD oils but still lack the full flavour offerings that you can buy online over at Associated CBD. The downside of buying at Tesco, Boots or Holland and Barrett for that matter is both you have to pay a slightly premium price for the ease, and you also lack the full flavourings!

A great example of this is the two Love Hemp products below that come in over £13 cheaper with us, and are both tasty flavours that are not typically stocked in the product range for Tesco CBD oil or Boost CBD oil!

Love Hemp 1200mg Valencia Orange 30ml CBD Oil - £37.99

Love Hemp 1200mg Wild Cherry 30ml CBD Oil - £37.99

These CBD oils taste absolutely incredible and are certainly preferable for those that prefer a flavoured CBD oil. The difficulty is choosing between the succulent Valencia Oranges or the sharper Wild Cherry sensation!

Holland and Barrett CBD Oil

Holland and Barrett were one of the first high-street stores to sell CBD oil into the mainstream. However with their range of vitamins and other health foods it feels as if the CBD oils can fall back down the pecking order. It can often be difficult to find a wide range of products in these stores, and it’s difficult to get store assistants to understand the nuances of the different CBD oil types. It is not a criticism as they have to have knowledge of thousands of products, but CBD oil is quite a specialist product amongst the huge variety of food stuffs that now dominate Holland and Barrett stores.

Holland and Barrett CBD muscle balms are one area that has grown in store lately and that is good news for the sporting types! To review CBD muscle balms is a tough job particularly those that you can pick up in Holland and Barrett. The main reason behind this is that to really get the most out of topical CBD muscle balms you really need a very high CBD strength to feel the most benefit on things like pain and inflammation. In our opinion the Holland and Barrett CBD muscle balms in the 200 mg and 300 mg strength range are just not strong enough to feel the full benefit.

Not to say this is the same for everyone, but our best testimonials and cbd reviews CBD muscle balms have come from those that come in the 500mg - 1000mg (or higher) CBD range. 

Thankfully we have a great range of these super strength CBD muscle balms and rubs so please do check out our site. They are also very well priced, so will come in cheaper than you will find the Holland and Barrett CBD muscle balms in many cases and also at far more effective strengths!

In Summary When Buying CBD Oils From Boots, Tescos Or Others

Buying CBD oils from any number of supermarkets including Tesco, Boots, Holland and Barrett or more is easier than it ever has been. You will pay a premium when buying in store particularly in comparison to buying online with us! That is probably no surprise as we all know buying in-store is often more expensive. The other issue we see is the lack of flavours, range, and strengths that is on offer when buying Tesco CBD oil and Boots CBD oil. Whilst we love the natural CBD oil flavour, we know many do not and the Love Hemp CBD options are truly delicious and sadly not available at many Tescos, Boots and Holland and Barrett stores!

We always love to help where we can with information or recommendations, so please do reach out to us on our live chat if you have burning questions! Thanks very much for reading, you can reach me directly here! All the best!


Which supermarkets can I buy CBD oil from?

As seen in this blog you can Buy CBD oils from many such as Tesco, Boots and Holland and Barrett but also others like Morrsions and Sainsburys are beginning to increase their range. The Tesco CBD oil range and Boots CBD oil range is still a little limited particularly in flavours and strengths but it is still a fantastic step to see these CBD brands grow into the supermarket chains! If you are looking for Tesco CBD oil, Boots CBD oil, or Holland and Barrett CBD muscle balms or oils then please do check out the links above in this blog for great quality CBD products at much more affordable prices!

What is CBD?

CBD, or cannabidiol, is a compound found in the cannabis plant. It is one of many cannabinoids found in the plant, and it does not produce the psychoactive effects associated with THC (tetrahydrocannabinol). The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a complex network of receptors and neurotransmitters that is present in all mammals. It plays a role in regulating a variety of physiological and cognitive processes, including pain, memory, mood, appetite and more. Check out our blog on The ECS here for more information.

But what is the Endocannabinoid System?

The ECS is made up of two main receptors: CB1 and CB2. CB1 receptors are primarily found in the central nervous system, while CB2 receptors are found in the immune system and other tissues. The body's own endocannabinoids, such as anandamide and 2-arachidonoylglycerol (2-AG), bind to these receptors and activate them.

CBD can interact with the ECS by inhibiting the breakdown of endocannabinoids, such as anandamide, which can lead to an increase in their levels. CBD can also bind to and activate CB2 receptors, although it does so less effectively than THC. CBD can interact with the ECS and is thought to be responsible for some of its therapeutic effects, such as its ability to reduce inflammation and reduce anxiety.

What CBD oils are best for anxiety?

This is a question which will depend very much on the user. We find just as many of our customers opting for a cbd isolate based oil as we do for those looking at full spectrum or even broad spectrum oils. It is very much a question that is best tested by each person to find which CBD oils work best for them. The common advantage to CBD full spectrum oils are in regards to the well known combination of CBD with other cannabinoids called the entourage effect. The combination of other cannabinoids with CBD are said to interact with one another to have a more profound impact. However on the flip side, we find many customers who want the purest form of CBD with no further cannabinoids and for these users a CBD isolate remains their best bet.

How much CBD oil should I take?

So this brings us full circle to the heading of the blog post. Well to be honest, ultimately it depends. If you are a new user, we would typically suggest trying a CBD isolate oil and going for a small dosage in the region of 10mgs. You can then build this up over the following days and weeks to test your tolerance and see how your body reacts up to a limit of 70mg. We always remind people that you can dose far higher than this, and there are studies that have supported its safety profile as high as 1500mg per day, but we would certainly not suggest anyone to do that!

I’ve taken CBD in small doses before but now I want to try CBD for anxiety, so what do you suggest?

For a more seasoned CBD user, we might suggest trying a broad spectrum of full spectrum CBD oil but would still look to start small with a dosage in the 10-25mg category. This allows any user to build up overtime and to really test how the CBD interacts with your body and if it really aids your sleep.

Can I take CBD everyday?

Yes, you can take CBD everyday and in fact building up CBD in your system overtime can give some of the greatest benefits as opposed to one-off dosages.

Which CBD Oil is best?

We like to think variety is an important factor, and that is one reason at Associated CBD we try to hold a wide variety of CBD strengths, types and products! There is no best CBD out there, it is about what works best for you and your body.

Are there studies that can support CBD helping with anxiety?

Yes, there are plenty of studies that support CBD having effects on anxiety and many of our customers have left positive reviews for how it has supported them in this way. Some of our  blogs look in more detail at these studies.
