The best results were when I took a stronger oil under my tongue twice a day and had the capsules handy for when I felt like I needed an extra boost. I also took them with me when I was travelling or in a hurry.
Capsules are an easy and discreet way to take hemp oil. They provide a pre-measured amount that can be taken on a journey, in a bag or pocket, with no fear of leaking. You also have the choice of swallowing them with water or breaking them open and holding the oil under your tongue.
I tried taking these both ways and each worked well. They are standard sized capsules and were easy to take with a small amount of water. They are well sealed but brittle, so I easily released the oil by breaking them between my teeth. While this was no hassle, I think that if I planned on taking the oil sublingually under my tongue, I would just buy drops. If you prefer to buy oil check out our best UK CBD oils list.

These aren’t available for any Holland & Barrett CBD products and mark one of the most noticeable differences between them and leading CBD retailers. While I would consider Holland & Barrett to be a trusted brand, anyone selling cannabinoids in any form should be able to produce third party lab tests at the point of sale.
If there was more information available about the source of the hemp oil and its cannabinoid profile it could make them even better value.
