FEATURE: The Best CBD Supplements For 2019.
One of the most talked about supplements of the year so far is CBD oil and we want you to spend your money wisely. With that in mind, we’ve put together a list of the best CBD supplements for 2019.
Since the loosening of legal policy around cannabis and the growing evidence in support of its health benefits, CBD oil has become an integral part of a lot of peoples supplement stack, used as a recovery aid by helping to improve sleep and reduce exercise-induced inflammation. Personally, I’ve been taking it for a few weeks have felt real, tangible improvements in my sleep quality.
In this article I’m going to discuss some of the best CBD supplements for 2019, looking at 4 products that are standing out in terms of their reviews and effectiveness.
By way of a quick intro if you’ve never heard of or tried CBD oil, here’s a quick round up…
CBD (cannabidiol) is a Cannabinoid – a molecular compound found in the cannabis plant. There are 85 known cannabinoids and they have a variety of effects on the body, particularly around mood, sleep, anxiety and appetite. The research is largely in its infancy, but so far the overwhelming evidence is that there are a lot of recovery benefits to CBD oil.
The CBD we can take in supplement form is 100% legal because it contains no Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which is the cannabinoid that makes you ‘high’. Essentially, what you’re taking when you take a CBD oil supplement is most of the health benefits, without any of the compound that makes you high left.
There are various ways to take CBD oil – capsules, tinctures, gummy bears, rubs etc. In todays article, we’re going to look at the best CBD supplements for 2019, which includes an example of a tincture, gummy bears and capsules.

As I’ve just mentioned, you can take CBD oil in various forms, so you can decide what works for you. I’ve tried it in all forms – the gummy bears and the tinctures being my favourites. I’ll explain the pros and cons of each way when I come to review each product – it’ll help you make a decision based on how you like to take your supplements.

White Cedar Superfoods – 600MG CBD Oil Gummy Bears
I’ve tried a good number of CBD oil gummies, but this one is by far my favourite. They do a good job of masking the taste and at 20mg of CBD per gummy, they’re pretty potent. You can see more in my in-depth review here, but in short they’re a really good product.
Gummies are a great way of hiding the taste and they can feel like a treat to people on a strict diet – it sounds strange, but anyone going through an intense cut will know how beneficial even a tiny treat can be to your psychology when you’re reaching really low body fat levels!
- Really effective – helps with sleep and pain relief.
- Tastes OK – always helps with CBD products.
- High potency.
- ‘Clean’ – GMO, Nut, Dairy, Gluten, Soy etc free.
- Not the cheapest on the market at up to £90 per month.
- Higher calories than other forms.
Zipvit Hemp Seed Oil – 1000mg
If you prefer to take your supplements in capsule form, this is one of the best and most cost-effective on the market. The Zipvit CBD is derived from the hemp seed, rather than the hemp plant and that is reflected in the price. The potency remains and the reviews of the products are some of the best online. It’s also a much longer lasting product on account of its pack size.
Of course there is a lot of benefit to ease of a capsule, one of which is the bulk in which you can buy the product. I would recommend this with a word of warning though – this is the best of the budget range. If you’re used to a higher dosage, you may be better off sticking to that.
- Really cost effective – much cheaper than gummies and oils.
- Convenient – 1 capsule per day.
- Effective for pain relief, anxiety and sleep.
- Also includes omega 3 and 6.
- Some don’t get the same response to the hemp seed CBD as they do to the plant CBD
- Small dose size means it takes longer to build up in your system
Native Botanics CB1 & CB2 Full Spectrum Premium Hemp Extract – Peppermint Flavour
If you’re after an absolutely premium product and aren’t too bothered about cost, you can go to the top end of the market. In this case it’s the Native Botanics CB1 and CB2 Full Spectrum oil, with a peppermint flavour. The peppermint hides the biggest issue with the high purity CBD oils – the incredibly bitter It’s not the cheapest, but it’s basically peerless when it comes to its reviews.
The spray means that the dose delivery is precise, which can be a big issue for people who take their CBD in oil form – they never know if they are managing to consume a correct dose size as there’s little control over the pipette.
Thanks to the extraction process, this oil has a higher percentage of the compounds intact, meaning it’s a purer, more beneficial product. Of course you’re going to pay top dollar for the benefit of taking the product, but if you really suffer with poor sleep etc, then it may be worth shelling out.
- Incredibly pure extraction method – preserves most of the CBD
- Comes in spray form for easy dosage
- High potency, really effective
- Tastes nice thanks to the peppermint oil
- High priced way to supplement CBD
- Spray isn’t for everyone
- Small bottle size, will need replacing frequently
Nu U Nutrition Hemp Seed Oil Softgels 1000mg
Capsules are the cheapest and easiest way to consume your CBD oil, so if your budget doesn’t stretch far but you still want the effects, these hemp seed oil soft gels are the highest rated budget range product on the market. The Nu U product is vegan friendly, so offer a ‘cleaner’ choice nutritionally than the other capsules on the market.
The potency is the same as many other similar products, but the refining of the oil is lower than most, which is why they are reported as more effective and post the highest satisfaction score of the capsules online.
As capsules go they cost a little more than most, but when it comes to CBD oil the general rule is that you get what you pay for. If you want a budget hemp seed oil product, this could be it.
- Cheap way to supplement
- Convenient – easy to take a capsule
- Package lasts a long time – 4 months supply per tub
- Vegan friendly
- Not as strong as more expensive CBD products

Best CBD Supplements for 2019
The general rule of thumb with CBD is the more expensive it is, the higher the concentration and dosage. This isn’t like protein, where you can get away with a lower dosage by eating more high protein foods – if you’re after the CBD effects, you’re better off taking a better quality product.
