Once you’ve begun to use CBD products and have increased the strength to find a dose that suits you, you may look at the high-strength products. These provide more cannabidiol (CBD) for your money and have a greater impact on your health and well-being.While extra strong oils are better valued, they are often a higher initial price. Therefore, you won’t be able to try every option until you find your favourite. Right from the beginning, you need to know that you are investing in the best products available and that they will suit your needs.This guide will introduce you to the best high-strength products available and give you all the information you need to make the right choice. We will talk you through the strongest oils, sprays, e-liquids and balms available, letting you see for yourself how we make our selections to ensure we only stock the best in the market.\nWhat is considered high-strength CBD oil?\nAny CBD oil that has a high concentration of cannabidiol, relative to the amount of carrier oil, is considered a high-strength oil. For example, 1000mg of CBD may seem like a large amount but in 10ml it only provides a concentration of 10% and is considered to be low strength. Any oils below 10% are also considered low strength and are favoured by those getting started with CBD oil or children.Oils with a concentration of more than 15% are medium strength and those above 25% are strong. When you look for high-strength products you may find oils with a strength of 30% or 40%. 40% CBD oil in 10ml will contain 4000mg of CBD and in 20ml it will contain 8000mg. A 30% CBD oil in 10 ml will hold 3000mg of CBD. However, in different products, different concentrations can be considered high strength because of the intensity of the effect they produce. Balms and e-liquids can be considered strong if they are between 3% and 6%.All these products are legal, available in the UK and contain a maximum of 0.2% Tetrahydrocannabinol (CBD). At this level, it is not addictive and won’t get you high (it’s not psychoactive).\nDo I need strong CBD oil?\nStrong CBD oil not only gives you more cannabidiol but also provides some unique advantages: they have a better ratio of cannabinoids to carrier oil and high-quality full-spectrum products contain other cannabinoids that work in synergy to create an entourage effect.Strong oils are cost effective because you get more CBD and less additional ingredients. This allows you to spread the doses out over a longer period or utilise the benefits of higher doses. Higher doses can also be delivered in a quick and easy way with fewer drops needed.Each dose provides a different effect depending on its strength. Large amounts of cannabidiol act quicker and have a more intense and longer-lasting effect, providing a great boost to health and well-being (WHO, 2018).\nHow to dose a high-strength CBD oil\nCBD affects each person differently, a lower dose could give you the effect you want, but some users report that gradually reaching a higher dose provides the best results (Gill, 2019).Begin by following the advice on the label and take the minimum dose for one week. If you need to increase the amount add an extra 50% for another week. Keep doing this until you reach a dose that works for you.Most high-strength users start with 30-60mg of CBD per day for a week and continue taking 45-90mg per day during the second week and onwards depending on their requirements.The most effective way to take oil or tinctures is to place them under your tongue and hold them there. This allows them to be absorbed into the blood vessels and membranes under your tongue and is referred to as the sublingual method (Gruber, 2015). After 2-3 minutes, wash them down with a glass of water and, to really boost absorption, follow them with a meal that contains at least a little bit of healthy fat (oil, butter or a lipid-rich food).\nThe strongest CBD oil\nThere may be other CBD oils in the UK market that claim to be stronger than this one, but this is the strongest full spectrum CBD oil we've found in the UK:\nLove Hemp 40% CBD Oil – Strongest and full spectrum\nAvailable for sale in the UK, Love Hemp's 40% contains 4000mg of CBD in 10ml of oil, is full spectrum, vegan and has been cold pressed using Supercritical CO2. This high-strength extract is produced from Colorado hemp and made to the highest production standards. It is a potent oil and users have reported that a couple of drops in the evening can really make a difference to their health and well-being.Love Hemp is a British pioneer of quality CBD oil products and was founded by Tom Rowland and Tony Calamita. They started in 2015 and were spurred on by their belief that cannabidiol is a true “life changer”. It wasn’t long before they built their company into one of the top UK brands. They built their name by using the best hemp available together with the most efficient, yet simple, methods to extract and manufacture oil for their products. All Love Hemp items are THC free (below 0.2%), non-addictive, non-toxic and third-party tested for purity. Their tagline says it all, “Just Hemp \u0026amp; Love”.\nBiopurus UK 30% CBD Oil- Strong and whole-plant (beyond full spectrum)\nThe Biopurus 30% CBD Oil is a certified organic oil made by Biopurus from Czech farmed hemp and sold in the UK by Biopurus. It has 3000mg of CBD in 10 ml and the bottle provides 200 drops which can work as a 100-day supply. The cannabidiol used is both full spectrum and whole plant extract and includes a full range of cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids as well as chlorophyll, lipids, phytonutrients, alkanes, amino acids, aldehydes, ketones, omegas, and glycosides. Having these alongside the CBD creates an entourage effect where each component interacts to create a synergistic effect more powerful than pure or isolated CBD.Biopurus UK is a small supplier who produces some of the finest high-strength CBD drops available.

As a brand, they keep everything simple and focus on the quality of their product. Their products are certified organic as is the entire production process. They ensure fair practices and natural ingredients throughout.\nCannabiGold Intense 30% CBD Oil – strong and easy to dose\nWith a mild nutty flavour, CannabiGold Intense 30% is one of the best tasting high-strength oils and has none of the bitterness associated with some oils. This top-quality oil is grown organically in the Vistula region of Poland.The environmentally friendly harvesting and production process is overseen by HemPoland, Poland’s market leader in hemp production.

Uniquely, it comes in a bottle with a specially designed pump which provides a measured dose of 30mg. Each 12ml bottle holds 3000mg of full spectrum oil delivered in about 100 pumps.CannabiGold - Initially started by HemPoland, CannabiGold was recently sold to The Green Organic Dutchman Holdings Ltd.

Their success is down to meticulous research and development, ensuring that the best techniques are utilised. Their best-known innovation is the pump created to deliver a standard dose of CBD. It prevents the leakage that often occurs with droppers and ensures that you can use all the oil you buy.\nThe highest CBD content oil\nIf you’re not looking for the strongest CBD oil but for the highest quantity of CBD in one single product, this is it: Love Hemp UK CBD Oil 10% XL size - This is a 10% oil, but it comes in a 100ml bottle meaning that you will get a huge 10000mg in one bottle. Each drop is not as strong as those from 30% and 40% oils, but larger amounts of it will create the same effect as a high-strength oil. By buying this XL bottle you are getting the most affordable cold pressed organic oil available. It is made from high-quality hemp strains and has been produced to fulfil the needs of both individuals and families. You can also choose between an MCT or hemp carrier oil.\nHigh-Strength CBD oil works better in synergy with other products\nThe synergy between CBD and other products can be used to enhance its effects in two ways:\n1. Increase the amount of cannabidiol that reaches your bloodstream (bioavailability).If you are going to ingest CBD, you can do this by combining it with fats or oils. The presence of the fats and oils stimulate your body’s lymphatic system to increase the lymph flow and transport the CBD into your bloodstream in its unmetabolised form (Beata Plutowska). Specifically, the presence of vegetable oil has been found to increase the bioavailability of CBD by up to three times (Zgair, 2016). MCT oil has also been found to be particularly effective at allowing cannabidiol to bypass the first pass system in which it would normally be broken down by the liver.2. Combine CBD with other natural compounds found in the hemp plant. By using as much of the plant as possible, as in full spectrum or whole plant extract, the CBD is combined with other cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids, nutrients and other plant matter. When used together these substances give a combined effect that has been observed to be greater than that of the sum of each part. This has been called the entourage effect. Cannabinoids and other natural chemicals interact with receptors in your body that form part of your Endocannabinoid System (ECS). When several different substances are together, they change and enhance the nature of these interactions (Russo, 2019).\nThe strongest CBD paste\nCBD is also available as a paste which is stronger and thicker than oil or drops. They often come preloaded into syringes for easy dispensing. Our strongest paste is:Pharmahemp UK CBD Paste 50% - This is the strongest paste available in the UK and can be used under the tongue (sublingually), topically, or even rectally. It is a full spectrum product containing a full range of cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids and plant nutrients.Third party lab tests have been conducted to analyse its cannabinoid ratio and microbiological adequacy. The paste comes in two 5 ml syringes and together contain a total of 5000mg of CBD extract.CBD Paste 20% in 5ml (1000mg) - This is a milder paste, but it contains the same range of plant nutrients. Because many of the plant components are still present in pastes, they have an intense flavour. However, in this paste the hemp extract has been combined with coconut oil, shea butter and cocoa butter which reduces its natural bitterness and improves is bioavailability.Pharmahemp is a company with decades of experience working with cannabis and hemp crops. They grow their organic produce in Eastern Slovenia, the Gorenjska region and Croatia. Because these areas have a long history of growing cannabis prior to its prohibition, they continue to use simple and effective traditional methods. The supercritical CO2 extraction method is used to produce some of the most potent pastes available.\nThe strongest CBD spray\nSprays are easy to use and allow you to absorb the CBD under your tongue into your bloodstream giving you quick delivery of the active ingredient. They are often easier to apply than drops and prevent wastage when opening and closing the bottle.Love CBD Spray 2000mg Entourage Oil - This 10% spray is a fine oil containing 2000mg of CBD in 20ml.

It was started by Phil and Dan Culbertson to improve the quality of CBD oils available in the UK. They create their oils from specially selected blends from different hemp strains. All extracts are pressed using CO2 extraction and used in a wide range of products including sprays and balms.\nThe strongest CBD capsules\nCapsules are an easy way to take CBD when you are on the go. They are convenient, easy to use and each dose is pre-measured.CBD capsules 10% Cibdol UK (60 softgels) - The full tub of these capsules contains 960mg of CBD oil with 16mg in each capsule.

Small portable pen-sized vaporisers are easy to take with you and can be used discreetly. Vaping is one of the quickest ways to get CBD into your bloodstream and can deliver between 34-56% of each dose to your blood for use in your body, compared to only 4-20% when ingested (Paudel et al 2010) (Huestis 2007). Love Hemp CBD Vape Additive - This is a handy product that can be used to increase the strength of any other e-liquid.

These are available in the UK exclusively from for the Ageless and are made from full spectrum CBD oil rather than crystals. This makes them stand out among other brands and gives them a potency and flavour unmatched by any other e-liquid so far.\nThe strongest CBD balm\nTopical balms are a great way to apply CBD directly to any affected area. Because they are absorbed through the skin it is even more important to use a high-strength balm to get the desired effect.

It is available in this size due to the balm’s popularity with customers.Each jar is packed full of natural ingredients including CBD, Coconut Oil, Shea Butter and Rosemary. It also has a high CBDa content which, studies have indicated, is important to create an effective formulation.\nWhy is high-strength CBD so expensive?\nHigh-strength CBD products contain more cannabidiol and less additional ingredients such as carrier oils. This is the most valuable ingredient due to factors, including the cost of raw materials and the extraction process, driving the price up. This gets passed on to the customer resulting in a product that becomes more expensive if it contains a larger amount of CBD. However, in terms of how much you get for your money, high-strength CBD can be the most economical way to buy it. The strongest CBD Oil, Balm \u0026amp; Hemp Tea Bundle - To get even better value from your purchase it is a good idea to consider a high-strength bundle like those offered at for the Ageless. We’re the only retailer in the UK that has put together the strongest CBD bundle with examples of all the products listed above, together with a great hemp tea.\nConclusion on the Strongest CBD Products\nHigh-strength CBD is great value for money because of its high CBD content. It can provide a high dose to be used in a large amount or spread out over time making it incredibly versatile. Because there are extra strong options in all these forms you are sure to find a high strength version of your favourite product. Whether you need something discreet and convenient, topically applied or you just want to kick back and relax, there is a product available to perfectly suit your needs.\nReferences\nBeata Plutowska, I.
