CBD Queen has many different CBD products, from oils to capsules, gummies and body balms. There’s been anecdotal evidence for CBD easing PMS symptoms like cramps and we love that there is a mix of products to draw upon. We love their signature oral oils but also adore their body oil which you can lather on your tummy when mother nature calls.
Best Brand For Beauty
Vitality Infused Range
We’ve already discussed the huge benefits of CBD for the skin and the best overal brand we’d highly recommend is Vitality. You can get pretty much anything you want infused with their high-quality CBD… for the summer months, we’ve been loving their aftersun and exfoliator and come winter, we’ll be switching to more hydrating products like their face mask and dry skin cream.

Best CBD Food
Naturecan CBD Infused Nut Butter
If you’ve been reading Hip & Healthy for sometime then I am sure you are aware that you can drink CBD, but did you know that you can also eat it! Naturecan offers a variety of delicious nut butters, cookies and chocolate for those who want to incorporate CBD into their diet. Our favourite is the CBD Infused Nut Butter – such an easy and yummy way to get your anxiety-calming CBD dose in plus it’s also a great way to get your protein in! We like to spread ours on toast first thing in the morning.
Best CBD Drops
From the UK’s number 1 Vitamin company (and the only vitamin company to receive the Queen’s Award for innovation twice), comes another great product – authentic pharma quality CBD drops you can totally trust. Coming in a range of doses – from 500mg to 1000mg – Vitabiotics Brains CBD provides 99% pure CBD. Plus they have somehow managed to make the drops not taste bitter without adding lots of flavouring – which is seriously no mean feat, so taking them is a delight!
Best CBD Brand for Sleep
I love pretty much everything about this brand I am not sure where to start; firstly the CBD is organically grown; every product in the entire range is created to support a healthy and restful night’s sleep; the packaging of the products is so beautiful that you’d be proud to have them in full view on your bathroom shelf and most of all, their products actually do what they say they will. If you have ever had trouble sleeping, or think you could benefit with a helping hand at bedtime this is it. The CBD Oil Night Drops have a natural peppermint flavour (perfect for bedtime – obviously) and promote a deep, natural sleep. Or why not try their Among The Stars Body Oil that contains rosehip, jojoba and calendula oils to protect and nourish the skin whilst also restoring balance to the senses before your head hits the pillow. But my favourite product has to be The Z’s bath soak for the ultimate relaxing bath that smells totally delicious as the Epsom and Himalayan Bath Salts work together with calming essential oils to penetrate both body and mind!
Best CBD Brand for Beginners
If you are new to CBD but keen to see if it is for you, starting with a brand like Trip is a brilliant way to begin your journey. They offer a “Discover CBD – My First Trip” starter pack that includes an array of their really tasty drinks (often found in cool establishments such as Soho House) and CBD oil as well. Their CBD Drinks are a great way to introduce other people to the joys of CBD too.
Best CBD for Menopause
CBD can be particularly helpful in pre-, peri- and menopausal women. A stable Endocannabinoid ecosystem is really important for women and many women have found that a daily supplement of Phytocannabinoids, like CBD, can support our well-being and keep our bodies in balance. Meno CBD was born out of this reason – to help alleviate symptoms in all stages of the menopausal process.
