From capsules to oils, gummies to salves, there are so many different ways to take CBD.
While we already have access to a wide variety of CBD merchandise from companies across the UK and Europe, local consumers are increasingly looking further afield for new and exciting products on the market.
One country that has quickly caught our attention is the United States. Gaining a solid foothold within the global CBD industry, companies here are fast becoming popular with UK consumers who value quality as well as variety.
These companies have successfully managed to tap into a range of areas when it comes to CBD products: sublingual consumption (with oils), oral consumption (with capsules), and topical applications (skincare). They also tick all the right box when it comes to ethical and sustainable sourcing of CBD for their products. This also ties heavily into the buying values of conscious, CBD-savvy consumers here in the UK.
As these brands and their products continue to build reputable names within international markets, we’ve been hard at work researching ones we would love to see more of within the UK.
If you’re interested in looking further afield for your next CBD product, here are a few of our favourites from the US worth considering:
If you’re on the hunt for a new skincare range, look no further than Cannuka. This company’s unique selling point lies in its product formulas made up of a unique combination of CBD and Manuka honey. Raw honey has long been used in natural beauty products to moisturise and nourish the skin, and this wonder-ingredient makes their products especially good for dry skin, or skin in need of a hydrating boost. Manuka honey also contains anti-inflammatory properties and has been used to treat acne and soothe eczema which complement the health and wellness properties of CBD.
Fifth and Root
Fifth and Root is a reputable brand in the US offering a range of hemp-infused skincare products. From facial oils to cooling facial masks and soothing body creams, everything they produce and promote is of high quality. We also love their brand messaging, which is fun, feel-good, and vibey. With a motto like: “taste, feel and see the sunshine”, this brand is just what we need when it comes to braving that UK weather. Fifth and Root has also racked up a long list of positive reviews from a loyal customer base and continues to build a secure foothold within the CBD skincare sector as they release new products.
Salvation Salve (Fifth and Root)
CBD beauty product
Salvation Salve is one of the latest and most well-loved products on the US market, courtesy of Fifth and Root. With a soft and velvety formula, this salve soothes aching muscles, calming the skin as well as the soul. It can be used throughout your whole body and contains a unique blend of relaxing ingredients like St. John’s wort (an anti-inflammatory) and Australian buddha wood (used by monks during meditation). Like all Fifth and Root products, the Salvation Salve contains no parabens, sulphates, synthetic colourants, or fragrances.
Lab to Beauty
Vegan and cruelty-free, Lab to Beauty is an impactful CBD company whose products we’d love to see more of here in the UK. Offering a range of capsules and body creams, they also have an excellent haircare range suitable for all hair types. If you love a good soak in the bath after a long day of work, they also feature a fantastic bath oil infused with Bulgarian rose, magnolia, and moringa extracts. Using sustainable sourcing and farming methods, and extracting their CBD from non-GMO hemp, theirs is some of the cleanest performing CBD products out in the US market to date.
If you’re a fan of consuming your CBD, you’ll love Mynd chewing gum. This quirky CBD product forms part of the Cannovia™ brand and pushes the boundary with its CBD, energy-boosting gum. You can even take your pick from four fun flavours, each offering a different benefit depending on your needs. There’s ‘mint’ to calm, ‘orange’ for recovery, ‘tropical’ for energy, and ‘berry’ for focus. The gum’s main ingredients include pure CBD, CBG (Cannabigerol), and Citicoline, known to support focus and concentration. While Mynd gum does contains a careful amount of caffeine, it is sugar-free, gluten-free, and has zero calories.
One of the most iconic brands in the industry, Charlotte’s Web boasts a number of physical stores across the US, but they also successfully sell a range of full-spectrum hemp CBD products from their online website. Along with gummies and capsules, they also stock pure oil, which trades as their flagship item. This CBD company has a stellar reputation and continues to grow in popularity. It has even been featured on CNN and in the New York Times. The really great news for online shoppers is that all Charlotte’s Web products carry a 30-day customer satisfaction guarantee with full refunds.
The Green Cure Mask by Lab to Beauty
CBD beauty product
CBD-infused facial masks are a great way to wind down and detoxify the skin. If you’re looking for a new one to try, add this one from Lab to Beauty to your list. Aptly called The Green Cure Mask, the formula contains unique, skin-loving ingredients like green tea, matcha, bentonite clay, and notes of lavender. Super light, rich and smooth, the mixture helps to detoxify the skin and reduce inflammation. It’s also as easy to take off as it is to put on, all you need is warm water. Since it is so gentle on the skin, The Green Cure facial mask can be used between one and three times a week and comes as a 60ml tub.
We value the importance of promoting safe and high-quality CBD products, but it’s still vital to do your research before purchasing them. While CBD is considered extremely safe, be sure to consult a medical health professional before using products that require consumption.
