Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of over 100 chemicals found in the Cannabis plant, more widely known as marijuana, and is the second most prevalent active ingredient in cannabis after tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the chemical responsible for the psychoactive properties of marijuana.
As the stigma surrounding this particular drug continues to lessen, more and more people are slowly beginning to recognise the plethora of health benefits that cannabidiol especially is believed to offer including relieving pain, reducing anxiety and depression, and alleviating cancer-related symptoms, among others.
This particular chemical has since found its way into the world of health and beauty as we see a rise in companies and brands creating products infused with CBD. From oils, to vapes, to creams, to tablets and so much more, there are now endless amounts of CBD products at your disposal. To help you filter through your options, we have compiled a list of the best, and of course most luxurious, CBD products on the market.
Oils and Tinctures
Oils and tinctures come in a range of flavours and strengths, with some even containing other cannabinoids, including THC, knows as “full-spectrum” products and can be ingested by placing a dose under your tongue, or into a drink or food if preferred. CBD oils are usually very pure and therefore require the lowest dosage, whereas tinctures, although still very pure, are mixed with flavour additives and solvents to create a concentrated liquid.
Oils and tinctures can differ greatly in terms of ingredients, strengths and recommended dosages so remember to read the label carefully.

If taken as drops on your tongue or in drinks or foods, the Royal Oil helps to induce a sense of calmness, and when used topically it soothes, hydrates and de-stresses your skin.
