The Best CBD Products For Every Concern


CBD’s been touted as a cure for many things in recent years – and there’s now some evidence it might actually work in some cases. These are the products we rate for seven particular issues, plus a recap on what exactly it is (no, it won’t get you high)…

CBD is a compound that’s extracted and processed from the flowers and leaves of the hemp plant. “CBD has anti-inflammatory properties, meaning it can be used to reduce inflammation within the body,” explains Fouzhan Shadidi, biohacking health coach at OptimallyMe. “CBD is also used as an adaptogen supplement. It has calming effects on the mind and body, which aids with sleep, stress, and anxiety management.”

When it comes to the type of CBD to look out for there are three types: full spectrum, broad spectrum and isolate powder. Broad spectrum is probably your best bet as it contains a range of cannabinoids and terpenes but without THC, the psycho-active constituent of the cannabis plant that’s illegal to consume recreationally in the UK.

If you suffer with excess stomach acid, sublingual drops that go under the tongue and bypass the digestive tract are the best option as stomach acid can reduce the bioavailability of CBD.

Other than that, it’s important to ensure you’re getting the best quality you can afford as CBD blends that have been mixed with filler ingredients like chemicals and solvents are commonplace. “Check for companies that are open about their sourcing, manufacturing processes, and testing certificates, as purity is important,” says Fouzhan. “You should also check for regulatory compliance: products must comply with local and national regulations regarding CBD and THC content.”

And now, here’s SLMan’s pick of the best products to try…

Best For Muscle Soreness

As well as containing a high concentration of CBD to soothe inflammation-related pain, this melting massage balm is loaded with magnesium, which helps muscles relax by blocking calcium uptake after exercise.
