From skin issues to stress relief, CBD is hugely popular now as a natural and highly effective solution for a wide range of conditions.
There are a lot of CBD brands and products to choose from and it can be rather bewildering to know which ones to opt for. When it comes to oral drops, experts recommend starting with lower dose products and seeing how you feel and if they have the calming effect you wish for.. and, if, after a few weeks you're finding you need a little more help, opt for the next highest dose and so on. Those experienced in using CBD can of course select the higher doses they are comfortable with.
Skincare-wise, choosing products with a high level of CBD is sensible. But also look for those with ingredients which as as natural as possible.
Here are some of the KCR's beauty & health team's favourite brands and products:
