They’re one of the UK’s best CBD companies. And they’re one of the select few brands that we’ve chosen to list on Handpicked CBD .
They only have one version of the Love Hemp CBD Oil Drops (the 1200mg). The rest are all CBD Oil Sprays.
The team at Handpicked CBD deal with CBD products everyday. We’d consider ourselves somewhat knowledgeable on the market. And we really have no idea what’s in a bottle of Holistic Herb CBD oil. So that’s a little worrying.
They have other brands for CBD Capsules, but for this review we’ve only looked at the CBD Oil products.
Yes and no, it depends! Some of the brands that they’re stocking are excellent, like Love Hemp and Reakiro. But in general their selection of CBD oil disappoints, as they’re mostly very low strength and therefore not effective for many people.

No, don’t worry! Unlike THC, CBD is not psychoactive and any THC residues from the processing of hemp are present at a negligible level, so won’t have a psychoactive effect.

The cannabis plant contains a range of cannabinoids – some of which are psychoactive (affect the mind) and some like CBD which do not. Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is a psychoactive constituent of the hemp plant. As THC can cause symptoms associated with psychosis, the levels of THC residues in CBD products are strictly controlled.
CBD (cannabidiol) is a natural substance present in the hemp plants (Cannabis sativa) that are bred for nutritional purposes. The CBD is primarily extracted from hemp paste, made from the leaves and flowers of the hemp plant.
‘We knew that there were numerous trends surfacing around this liquid but we didn’t expect to see sales increase this dramatically.
Holland & Barrett has reported extremely high demand for cannabis oil at its stores in Ireland and the UK, with sales up 37pc in the past month, as the government stalls on legislating to regulate cannabis for medical usage.
CBD has been linked to a number of neurological and physical benefits and can treat symptoms related to Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, MS and other illnesses, according to the World Health Organisation.
‘We are constantly looking to bring, new and innovative products to market that help our customers. It is great to see in this instance that we can help with the demand.’
The health store chain said it is one of the most asked about products in store and that reviews on its website showed that the food supplement is effective in easing pain.

‘We have been surprised at the success and popularity of CBD Oil since launch,’ a Holland & Barrett spokesperson said.
