CBD oil (or cannabidiol), hemp oil and other cannabis plant derived products are having a major beauty moment, in particular in North America. Here are five new ways to see what all the fuss is about.
Hempavida is the new kid on the beauty block, and the skincare brand is kicking things off this month with the launch of its first CBD full-spectrum hemp and collagen face mask on June 28. The mask, which is the first of an extensive line of CBD-based products set to launch this summer, uses ab-tested cannabidiol infused with organic ingredients for anti-aging skin repair.
Tata Harper has updated its signature ‘Revitalizing Body Oil’ to include CBD for full-body restoration, hydration, and rejuvenation. The brand has partnered with Plant People to launch the limited-edition product, which is called ‘Liquid Bliss’ and dropped June 28.
Dixie Botanicals has partnered with Surface Products Corp. to come up with a fitness-focused, hemp-derived CBD sunscreen combining the rejuvenating effects of CBD with UVA/UVB protection.
Our favourite? The potent 480mg that has a peppermint flavouring. In general, CBD can have quite a bitter taste so the minty freshness that this oil brought was a welcomed change. You can apply one to eight drops up to three times a day – with no more than 25 in 24 hours.
The Original Alternative also grow their own hemp across Europe and use CO2 extraction with low pressure and heat—it also worked wonderfully.

Love Hemp is a premium mid-strength CBG oil with an earthy flavour, rich texture and a gentle but effective result. CBG and CBD are both cannabinoids, CBG being the predecessor to CBD in terms of how the chemical breaks down when heated. Both offer similar effects according to a 2018 study.
Endoca uses a supercritical CO2 extraction process and the quality of the CBD oil is verified by GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices) certification as well as third party laboratory testing.
CBD oil is available in four main forms in the UK:
