As of November 2018, CBD became legal in Northern Ireland and the rest of the UK as long as the CBD products sold and consumed contain less than 0.2% THC.
If you are still unsure of what CBD is, CBD stands for cannabidiol and it is a component naturally found in hemp and cannabis plants. It is produced within these plants alongside other components such as THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), terpenes, flavonoids, and other cannabinoids such as CBDa and CBG.
The market for CBD products is growing at an extremely fast rate. There are CBD products everywhere from water-soluble CBD to CBD toothpaste, cream and hair products. So, as you can see, CBD can be in practically everything, as long as it contains less than 0.2% THC, as mentioned above.
Of course, there are also many products that contain 0% THC, so if you prefer to consume products with no THC in them, that is also an option.
Why is Online the Best Place to Buy CBD?
Well, with the boom in CBD sales and production, there has also been a surge in companies and brands that offer CBD. But where is the best place to find high-quality CBD brands and where is the best place to buy them?
The answer is online! Online is the best place to buy CBD in Northern Ireland because of many reasons, a few of which are listed below:
Quality is Ensured
When you buy CBD online, you are able to find more information on the companies and products you are interested in. Allowing you to be certain of the quality of your CBD.
The best way to determine the quality of your products is by looking for companies that do third-party lab testing and displays them. Many reputable companies will display their results with pride and this also allows you to see exactly what is in their products.
The reason this is ultimately important is because:
1) your health and wellbeing always come first, and you should always make sure all your products are safe and high quality.
2) it is always best to know that the quality of your CBD is ensured because poor quality CBD has been known to contain traces of heavy metals, pesticides, herbicides, and fertilizers. Some products won't even contain any CBD.
You get a Wide Variety of Brands and Products
When you visit a local shop, you will most likely find that most local shops only stock one or two brands; but when you visit an online shop you will find countless unique brands and products, many of which are regional.
Just like getting high-quality CBD matters, having a wide variety of CBD products and brands is also important, that way you can be sure you get the best prices, products and overall selection.
A great example of this is the brand Holistic Hemp Scotland, which can only be found in stores online and offers some superb CBD products.
You can get the best deals
Believe it or not, buying your CBD online is also the best way to get the best prices on your favourite products. When you’re shopping for CBD online, take the time to compare product prices and make sure you’re getting the best deals. When you get the chance to shop at a local store, you will most likely be surprised at the difference in price!
Getting the best price matters because CBD products such as CBD oil can get pretty expensive very quickly, and none of us wants to spend more money than necessary. But thankfully online CBD prices are much better and much more accessible.
Additionally, not only will you be spending more money, but as mentioned above, you can be much more sure that you are spending your money on high-quality CBD products, and not on CBD which isn’t that great.
Brands to Check Out
There are so many brands online today, many of which offer some excellent products, and many of which do not. Here are some of our favourites to give you an idea of what you should look for in a CBD brand, take a look:
Holistic Hemp Scotland
Mentioned above, Holistic Hemp Scotland is a small regional brand from Scotland that make some amazing products. Therefore, it can be hard to find in local stores in Northern Ireland. But this brand is definitely not one to be overlooked!
Holistic Hemp Scotland offers some unique products such as CBD Honey, CBD and CBDa oil, and whole plant extract, all of which are of superior quality.
Love Hemp is one of the most popular brands for CBD products in the UK for many reasons. The products made by Love Hemp are innovative, versatile, and high quality, which is why this brand is so popular.
CBD Asylum is a new brand but is quickly gaining recognition throughout the UK. Especially within the fitness circuits thanks to their sponsorship of Pro MMA fighter Alex Montagnani.
One of their most popular items amongst the fitness crowds is the CBD Pro Shot, which is a water-soluble CBD beverage enhancer that is flavourless and can be added to any drink. They also have some great CBD shower products as well!
Koi CBD is an American band so they are very hard to find in UK shops. However, just because you can't find their products in UK shops, does not mean they are of poor quality. In fact, they are the number one trusted brand in the US.
Koi CBD has become popular for the large range of flavours they offer with their E-liquids and CBD Oils. They even claim you can use the e-liquids as a tincture, but from personal experience, we don't recommend it. The flavour can be quite strong when taken orally, but they taste amazing as a vapour!
To conclude everything, yes CBD is legal in Northern Ireland and we think online is definitely the best place to buy it not only for the convenience, but you are sure to get high-quality products from a larger variety of brands at amazing prices! So, don’t hesitate to browse some stores online and see what they offer!
