5 CBD brands from Holland & Barrett to put on your radar
In the last few years, CBD has well and truly crossed over into the mainstream, appearing in everything from dark chocolate to our favourite serums.
CBD, short for cannabidiol, is a compound that’s derived from the hemp plant, so it understandably throws up a few questions. However, the hemp that’s used in CBD oil is high in CBD and very low in THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), the psychoactive compound most associated with recreational cannabis use. In other words, CBD products aren’t addictive and won’t make you feel high.
If you’re CBD-curious, but aren’t sure where to start, head to Holland & Barrett. The first major retailer to bring quality CBD products to the high street, it continues to only sell those that meet its high standards for purity, quality and safety — so you can find CBD you can trust in the format, flavour and strength that works for you.
It also leads the way with innovative new launches. So, whether it’s straight-up CBD oil you’re after or you’re more interested in soothing skincare, here are five CBD brands and the hero products to check out.
Grass & Co: Best for oils and balms
A sustainable business inspired by nature, the new Grass & Co range at Holland & Barrett combines high-quality CBD with botanical ingredients and vitamins that help support physical and mental wellbeing. It includes the Rest CBD oil, which has been fortified with vitamins B2, B5, B12, lavender and hops to help reduce tiredness and support your nervous system. Or, if you prefer, you can apply your CBD topically with deliciously-scented body oils and nourishing balms that can be massaged into your pulse-points to ease tension.

What is CBD?
Cannabidiol, known as CBD, is a non-addictive food supplement sourced from the leaves and flowers of the hemp plant. Praised by wellness experts and influencers, high-quality CBD products run no risk of you getting ‘high’ when using it – something people are often concerned about.
Every line of CBD that Holland & Barrett carries is packed with quality CBD, and has the THC, the psychoactive element, carefully controlled. Holland & Barrett only sells CBD that meets its highest standards for purity, quality, and safety as backed by leading trade associations and expert laboratories (the HFMA, EIHA and FERA Science).
Which CBD strength is for me?
All CBD products state their strengths on the packaging – sometimes it’s in percentage, sometimes it’s shown in milligrams. Head to the Holland & Barrett Health Hub or ask an Holland & Barrett colleague if you’re in the shop to help understand the guidelines, and work out the best choice for you.
Holland & Barrett experts recommend starting with a lower level and building up to the recommended daily dosage.
What are the best CBD products?
Traditionally taken in oil form, the CBD range is also available in a variety of forms to suit your lifestyle, from gummies to foot creams, pillow sprays, body balms and even tea bags!
