The Best CBD & Hemp Beauty Products On The Market

Updated: May 15

Cannabidiol, or CBD, comes from the Cannabis plant. It makes up 40% of the plant and was only discovered in 1940. Fast forward to 2018 and CBD, the part of the plant that does not get you high (that's THC) was the subject of many clinical trials on anxiety, pain, movement disorders and cognition. Jump to 2020 and CBD is widely excepted in mainstream society. It has become the inspiration behind many beauty products such as mascara and lube, elevating Cannabis's image from stoner to stylish. London is home to hundreds of CBD shops, with many popular high streets boasting at least one, encouraging many non-CBD-specialty shops and cafes to add something-or-other infused with the magic phytocannabinoid, from CBD-infused craft beers at Holloway Road's Indie Beer (now offering home delivery) to the Unwind Matcha Latte, infused with ethically sourced CBD, at Matcha and Beyond in Chelsea.



CBD has popped up everywhere and in everything from espresso martinis to milk and gummy bears, but the beauty product CBD industry, where the products have non-psychoactive effects that can simply have a soothing and relaxing effect, is undoubtedly one of the most rapidly growing sectors in the beauty and CBD industries respectively. The number of brands jumping on the CBD bandwagon is constantly increasing as the stigma loosens further thanks to it being deemed lawfully OK in the UK, as long as products contain no more than 0.2% THC. The Cannabis strain Hemp, on the other hand, can be grown in England and is much more commonly found in English beauty products than in CBD, down to legality strictness. Intrigued to see what all the hype is about? Treat yourself to the below CBD and Hemp inspired and infused products and enjoy a modern beauty product experience.


Radiance Transforming Mask, Eve Lom

This mask is all about the intensity. Everything from the colour scheme of the branding to the Australian caviar lime, Lime Pearl™ extract simply equals luxury and we want it on every millimetre of our bodies. With cannabis sativa seed, grape seed and camelina sativa oils, just one use of the mask lends a cushion-y, super smooth feel to the skin. But unlike some others, the thickness of Eve Lom's mask won't make you break out, due to the aforementioned caviar extract which gently exfoliates the skin. Decadent and effective. Buy it for £65 at evelom.com


Slumber Pillow Spray, Therapie Roques O'Neil

In this calming pillow spray, ideal for those needing a little extra relaxation before bedtime, you'll find four main ingredients: orange blossom water, for soothing and tranquility; lavender to separate your sleep from the worries of the day; chamomile which works as a calming sedative; and hemp, with its gloriously relaxing, sedative effect to promote a deep and enchanting slumber. Buy it for £29 at roquesoneil.com


Sleep Hygiene: How to Have a Good Night's Sleep


CBD Oil 5%, KIKI Health

Whilst this isn't a beauty product, it's all about CBD, hence popping it in here. This stuff is the real deal. The bottle, which assures approximately 200 drops, should be taken as follows: two to three drops under the tongue every day. As mentioned in the intro, CBD is scientifically proven to help aid many ailments with a natural, holistic approach. This product has been tried and tested by two members of the BEE family - one, which along with a CBD vape experienced relief from her chronic muscle spasms.The other, suffering from migraines, also experienced relief, especially in mornings and evenings. This CBD oil is also infused with hemp, which has its own benefits too. Highly recommend. Buy it for £40 at kiki-health.com

Always a good idea to carry moisturizer in one's bag, especially with all the hand sanitizing which can leave hands feeling dry. This one from The INKEY List (as seen on Refinery 29) isn't going to make you 'high, bro'. It's not going to make your cheeks tingle with the effects of a drug but it is, however, going to make them feel damn good.
