Our range of CBD brands has never been larger. In this blog we look at the best CBD brands on the market today, and those that find their way onto the virtual shelves of Associated CBD. We answer those questions like ‘Should I buy Trip CBD drinks?’, ‘What is the best Love Hemp CBD oil?’, ‘What do Cannaray CBD gummies do?’, ‘Can I buy Goodrays CBD from Boots?’ ‘and do you have any Naturecan offers?’. Read on to see our CBD reviews on all these top brands and the best buys in our opinion for each!
Trip drinks or Trip CBD is a brand that is dedicated to providing consumers with the highest quality CBD isolate infused drinks. One of the things that sets Trip Drinks apart from other CBD drink brands is their use of CBD isolate. Unlike full-spectrum CBD, which contains all the compounds found in hemp plants, CBD isolate is pure CBD that has been extracted and isolated from all other compounds. This means that Trip CBD drinks contain only the highest quality CBD, without any THC or other compounds that may cause unwanted side effects.
The Trip CBD infused drinks are without doubt their top performer, and have become renowned up and down the UK. Trip CBD drinks have found their way into restaurants, bars, clubs, supermarkets, and health stores like Boots and Holland and Barrett. For good reason too, they are great to help you unwind or boost your mind anytime of day and in any setting. They taste and look great also, and we are proud to have Trip CBD on our site!

You can check out the full range of Trip Drinks on our site but we have to pick out two CBD products that we have reviewed and loved.
24 x TRIP 15mg CBD Infused Peach & Ginger Drink 250ml - Our pick of the Trip Drinks bunch on flavour is the refreshing Peach and Ginger. The flavours work well together and the sharpness of the ginger is masked with the sweetness of the peach. It’s a great alcohol alternative and CBD drink that has been well received by many customers.
Trip CBD 1000mg CBD Oil With Chamomile 15ml - The stronger Trip CBD oil is our pick, and the wild mint being our favourite choice on flavour. A lovely CBD isolate oil that we find calming with its hints of chamomile, forming a great night-time oil for a good night’s sleep.
Love Hemp is a UK-based CBD brand that was established in 2015 with the goal of making high quality, trusted, and innovative CBD products. Since it was founded, Love Hemp has grown to become a staple in the UK market with an excellent range of CBD products. Love Hemp also aims to appeal to all CBD users. Love Hemp famously has taken on the UFC and of course Anthony Joshua as a brand ambassador in recent years.

Our full range of Love Hemp products is hugely varied and is one of the great things about Love Hemp. Their range of CBD products, flavours and strengths cater for all needs, and issues, so for customers looking to deal with sleep issues, anxiety or pain, Love Hemp CBD have all bases covered.
Love-hemp-3000mg-peppermint-10-cbd-oil-drops-30ml - Our pick of the bunch as we’ve shared in other blogs is the 3000mg Love Hemp CBD oil in peppermint flavour. It’s a super strong CBD oil which tastes fantastic and has drawn some incredible reviews raving about its impacts on sleep pain and anxiety! We could easily pick any of the other flavours from the Love Hemp Wild Cherry, or Valencia Orange, as they are all delicious.
Love Hemp 600mg CBD Jelly Domes - 30 Pieces - We’d be crazy to not pick out the Love Hemp CBD gummies UK, but cleverly named Jelly Domes. The sugary outside with a soft texture and incredible taste, alongside the relaxing broad spectrum CBD to unwind and relax.
Cannaray CBD is one of the UK’s leading CBD brands and has the famous Claudia Winkleman as the face of the brand. It has distinctive orange branding and prides itself as being backed by science, eco-friendly and built to unleash the full power of CBD! They are of course headlined by the much-loved Caludia Winkleman, which brings an air of celeb stardom to the Cannaray brand.

Cannaray CBD has two types of CBD oils. A morning or daytime oil known as Bright Days, and a night time specific oil named Night-Time CBD Oil Drops. We’ll get on to the Cannaray CBD reviews later, but for now the oils have slightly different ingredients unsurprisingly focused on either morning or night. The Cannaray CBD Bright days have a zesty citrus flavour with lime and juniper berries to give a fresh morning boost. The Cannaray CBD Night Time Drops have a more subdued peppermint flavour with the aim to encourage a restful night’s sleep. Both oils come in two strengths, a lower 500mg or 600mg and then a stronger 1500mg or 1800mg.
Cannaray CBD Bright Day Gummies are juicy, fruity and have a very citrus-like flavour. They are quite chewy, but delicious and a great way to get your CBD for those with a sweet tooth. They come in two strengths either 300mg or 900mg and are vegan friendly, THC free and triple lab tested!
Cannaray CBD Bright Days Capsules pair premium CBD with immune-supporting vitamins for a daily dose of sunshine in supplement form. The Cannaray CBD capsules are packed with a generous amount of vitamin D3, vitamin C, zinc and elderberry to support overall wellbeing. The Cannaray CBD capsules come in pre-measured doses of 10mg of CBD each and are perfect to take on the go or for those that prefer to avoid CBD oil.

Best Buys Goodrays CBD
Goodrays 30mg CBD Blood Orange & Grapefruit Seltzer 250ml - If we were to review the best Goodrays CBD flavour we would go for the Blood Orange and Grapefruit flavour. It’s refreshing but has a nice bitterness from the Grapefruit but not overpowering. Goodrays CBD drinks are also fantastic as they have a good strength of CBD with 30mg per can, which is quite something compared to Trip or many other CBD drinks that come in the 10-20mg range most often
Goodrays 750mg CBD Mixed Gummies - 25 Pieces - We have a strong list of CBD gummies UK throughout this blog, but we certainly feel the Goodrays CBD gummies can take a worthwhile place. They also have a number of CBD oils which are well worth trying, but the CBD gummies are strong at 25mg each, and are a CBD isolate, unlike many others on this list so great for those who want only the purest form of CBD. They are delicious of course too which helps!

What is CBD?
CBD, or cannabidiol, is a compound found in the cannabis plant. It is one of many cannabinoids found in the plant, and it does not produce the psychoactive effects associated with THC (tetrahydrocannabinol). The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a complex network of receptors and neurotransmitters that is present in all mammals. It plays a role in regulating a variety of physiological and cognitive processes, including pain, memory, mood, appetite and more. Check out our blog on The ECS here for more information.
But what is the Endocannabinoid System?
The ECS is made up of two main receptors: CB1 and CB2. CB1 receptors are primarily found in the central nervous system, while CB2 receptors are found in the immune system and other tissues. The body's own endocannabinoids, such as anandamide and 2-arachidonoylglycerol (2-AG), bind to these receptors and activate them.
CBD can interact with the ECS by inhibiting the breakdown of endocannabinoids, such as anandamide, which can lead to an increase in their levels. CBD can also bind to and activate CB2 receptors, although it does so less effectively than THC. CBD can interact with the ECS and is thought to be responsible for some of its therapeutic effects, such as its ability to reduce inflammation and reduce anxiety.
What are the differences between full spectrum CBD, broad spectrum CBD and CBD isolate?
Full spectrum CBD oil
Full Spectrum CBD oil contains all cannabinoids present in the hemp plant. Many researchers argue that by having the full range of compounds can amplify the therapeutic potential of CBD through the “entourage effect”
Broad spectrum CBD oil
Manufacturers producing Broad Spectrum CBD take extra measures to completely eliminate THC from the oil. Broad Spectrum CBD oil will still contain many other cannabinoids in the hemp plant to give a fuller CBD profile.
CBD isolate oil
With CBD Isolate, the goal is to create a ‘pure’ CBD oil that doesn’t contain any other compounds or cannabinoids. Typically the CBD must be carefully distilled and then additional tests are carried out to ensure its composition.
What CBD oils are best for anxiety?
This is a question which will depend very much on the user. We find just as many of our customers opting for a cbd isolate based oil as we do for those looking at full spectrum or even broad spectrum oils. It is very much a question that is best tested by each person to find which CBD oils work best for them. The common advantage to CBD full spectrum oils are in regards to the well known combination of CBD with other cannabinoids called the entourage effect. The combination of other cannabinoids with CBD are said to interact with one another to have a more profound impact. However on the flip side, we find many customers who want the purest form of CBD with no further cannabinoids and for these users a CBD isolate remains their best bet.
How much CBD oil should I take?
So this brings us full circle to the heading of the blog post. Well to be honest, ultimately it depends. If you are a new user, we would typically suggest trying a CBD isolate oil and going for a small dosage in the region of 10mgs. You can then build this up over the following days and weeks to test your tolerance and see how your body reacts up to a limit of 70mg. We always remind people that you can dose far higher than this, and there are studies that have supported its safety profile as high as 1500mg per day, but we would certainly not suggest anyone to do that!
I’ve taken CBD in small doses before but now I want to try CBD for anxiety, so what do you suggest?
For a more seasoned CBD user, we might suggest trying a broad spectrum of full spectrum CBD oil but would still look to start small with a dosage in the 10-25mg category. This allows any user to build up overtime and to really test how the CBD interacts with your body and if it really aids your sleep.
Can I take CBD everyday?
Yes, you can take CBD everyday and in fact building up CBD in your system overtime can give some of the greatest benefits as opposed to one-off dosages.
Which CBD Oil is best?
We like to think variety is an important factor, and that is one reason at Associated CBD we try to hold a wide variety of CBD strengths, types and products! There is no best CBD out there, it is about what works best for you and your body.
Are there studies that can support CBD helping with anxiety?
Yes, there are plenty of studies that support CBD having effects on anxiety and many of our customers have left positive reviews for how it has supported them in this way. Some of our blogs look in more detail at these studies. We’ve added some references on these below also.
Are there studies to support CBD and pain, arthritis or inflammation?
There are many studies showing promising signs of such a few which we have listed below and are well worth investigating:
