CBD Life UK: Our Honest Review

CBD Life UK is one of the leading CBD brands in the UK and is based in London since 2015. The company has focused on creating high quality CBD oils, capsules, gummies, topicals and vapes and amassed over 300 five-star reviews on Trustpilot, for an average score of 4.8 / 5.0. That alone says a lot about the quality of their products.

CBD Life UK aims to raise the bar when it comes to the quality of CBD products in the UK and for that reason it became one of the founding members of the Cannabis Trade Association, a cannabis group focused on developing good practice and transparency.

The company is not set of using hemp grown in a particular country and as such has been using extracts from hemp grown in the United States, Germany, Lithuania as well as a few other places in Europe. They use a supercritical CO2 extraction process to produce their full-spectrum, broad-spectrum and CBD isolate products.

CBD Life UK focuses on 3 product types:

  • CBD Life UK Raw: Their full-spectrum CBD products which have gone through the least amount of refinements and therefore are as close to the plant as possible. This means that you will benefit from the full entourage effect.
  • CBD Life UK Refined: Their broad-spectrum CBD range which contains all the cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids, but is 100% THC-free.
  • CBD Life UK Pure: Their CBD isolate products which only contain 99% pure CBD and not other cannabinoids or THC.

CBD Life UK CBD was reviewed by the CBD Unboxed team for a period of 2 weeks. Our review covers 7 key factors and you can use the links below to jump to the relevant section:

CBD Life UK Review Score


CBD Life UK has been officially tested and reviewed by the CBD Unboxed team. Products have not been gifted by the brand and as such, this review is 100% independent and based on our personal findings.

I founded CBD Unboxed because I suffer from bilateral femoroacetabular impingement (known as FAI), which occurs when the femoral head (ball of the hip) pinches up against the acetabulum (cup of the hip). Over time this condition damaged all the cartilage in my hip, resulting in hip osteoarthritis, a very painful condition. To manage my pain and to avoid relying on traditional painkillers which have known side effects, I turned to more natural products and found CBD to be a godsend. I have now used CBD for the past 7 years and want to share my experience with you.

Our Review: CBD Life UK Raw Oil 2000mg

Our review focused on CBD Life UK Raw Oil 2000mg (20% concentration with coconut MCT oil carrier), which is a full-spectrum CBD oil. It contains all the natural hemp extracts such as Cannabidiol (CBD), CBDv (Cannabidivarin), CBG (Cannabigerol), CBC (Cannabichromene) and CBT (Cannabicitran), as well as the naturally-occurring terpenes, flavonoids, and Omega acids.

As it is a raw CBD oil, it also contains trace amounts of THC, but it is non-psychoactive as the hemp plants used to produce the CBD extracts contain less than 0.2% THC.

During the two-week period, we took 40mg of CBD daily broken down as follows – 20mg in the morning, 10mg at lunchtime and 10mg an hour before bedtime.

Price-wise, their 20% CBD Oil retails at £49.95 (£0.025 per mg of CBD) which makes it one of the cheapest CBD oils on the market!

The characteristics of their 2000mg CBD oil are detailed below.

+ Size: 10ml Bottle
+ Strength: 20% CBD Oil (2000mg)
+ Type: Full-Spectrum CBD Oil
+ Oil Carrier: MCT oil
+ Hemp Origin: Various Strains
+ Extraction: CO2
+ Flavour: Unflavoured
+ Our Rating: 8.9 / 10
+ Price: £49.95 (Cost per Day: £0.50 for 20mg)

So how well did CBD Life UK Raw Oil perform in our review?

Effectiveness (9.5/10

CBD Life UK Oil for Pain Relief

CBD Life UK Raw CBD oils have excellent pain relieving and anti-inflammatory properties.

I personally found that by taking 40mg of their raw CBD oil daily, broken down throughout the day (morning, lunchtime, evening), my symptoms and pain improved greatly over the two-weeks I used this product. To put this into perspective, I would usually wake up feeling like I had been hit by a bus (Pain ratio: 9 out of 10) but that pain ratio would come down to a 4 or a 5 within thirty-minutes of using their CBD oil. That’s a massive difference when like me you suffer from a painful condition and just want to be able to get on with your day.

I also found this oil to work relatively quickly. I would usually start feeling the positive effects of their oil within 25-30 minutes of taking it.

Other Benefits of CBD Life UK

Other than helping with pain and inflammation, we found CBD Life UK Raw Oils to work incredibly well for other conditions such as sleep, anxiety or stress.

This is because CBD interacts the specific receptors in the body, namely CB1R and CB2R.

  • CB1 receptors, which are located in various regions of the body, with a large concentration in the central nervous system and brain, co-ordinate mood, emotion, appetite, and other functions.
  • CB2 receptors are more commonly found in the immune system and are responsible for controlling inflammation and pain. CBD stimulates these receptors and induces the body to release serotonin.

CBD also increases the level of Serotonin, or 5-HT, a neurotransmitter that carries signals from one neuron to the other. In doing so, it helps with the below conditions:

  • CBD Oil for Sleep: By taking CBD oil just before going to bed, it relaxes both the mind and body and helps you fall asleep faster, as well as stay asleep throughout the night.
  • CBD Oil for Stress: Through its interaction with the hippocampus and the amygdala, CBD oil can relax the mind and reduce the symptoms of stress.
  • CBD Oil for Fibromyalgia: CBD oil can help fibromyalgia sufferers by reducing the pain experienced as well as the level of inflammation, and it can also improve their sleep.
  • CBD for Anxiety: CBD has both anti-anxiety and antidepressant properties, and can be a great alternative to anxiety medications which have known side-effects.
  • CBD Oil for Headaches: CBD oil reduces stress and improves sleep, two major triggers of headaches. It also has strong pain relieving and antiemetic (prevent vomiting) properties which can help people with chronic headaches.
  • CBD Oil for Arthritis: As we have seen during our 2-week product review, CBD has antiarthritic, pain relieving as well as anti-inflammatory properties making it a great option for people suffering from arthritis.
  • CBD Oil for Nausea: CBD is know to have antiemetic properties, meaning that it prevents people from feeling nauseous or wanting to vomit. It has been used widely for cancer patients as it helps relieve some of the side-effects of chemotherapy.
  • CBD Oil for Period Cramps: CBD has been proven to help reduce unpleasant period-related symptoms such as pain, cramping, poor sleep, nausea and anxiety

Taste (9/10)

CBD Life UK Raw Oils have a really nice flavour profile for a a full-spectrum CBD oil. The oil has a golden brown colour, which usually indicates that the oil will have quite a strong grassy or woody flavour profile and may also have quite a bad aftertaste.

However, this is actually a very pleasant and palatable CBD oil which is well balanced and won’t leave you with a terrible aftertaste that you have to wash down with a glass of orange juice.

The lighter and pleasant flavour profile could be explained by two factors:

  • MCT Oil Carrier: CBD Life UK uses Coconut MCT oil as the main carrier, which tends to have a more pleasant taste that hempseed oil.
  • Multiple Strains: The company also sources their hemp from multiple countries and mixing various strains could certainly affect the flavour profile of their products, in a good way that is.

For a Better Taste: Refined Oils

For those of you who do not like the natural taste of their full-spectrum CBD oil, CBD Life UK have another product range called Refined which is broad-spectrum CBD oil. As it has gone through an additional filtration process to remove the unwanted THC and plant waxes, it is therefore much more palatable:

Value for Money (10/10)

Price wise, you can get their Raw CBD Oil 2000mg for £49.95 which works out at £0.025 per mg of CBD. This makes CBD Life UK one of the cheapest and most effective CBD oils we have reviewed on CBD Unboxed!

For instance, a person weighing 150-240 lbs would usually take between 20mg and 40mg of CBD per day depending on the severity of their symptoms. A 10ml bottle of their 2000mg CBD oil (retail: £44.95) will therefore last between 25 and 50 days and cost between £0.50 and £1.00 per day, which is incredibly cheap when compared to other CBD brands in our Top 10.

Product Range (9/10)

We absolutely love the fact that CBD Life have focused on developing a wide range of products since launching the company in 2015. They not only offer the traditional CBD oils, capsules and gummies, but have also developed a very nice range of CBD vapes.

1. Raw CBD Oils (Full-Spectrum)

CBD Life UK Raw Hemp Extracts are made from organically-grown hemp extracts for various countries (US, Germany, Lithuania) which have been mixed with MCT oil. This product range has had the least amount of refinements and is therefore as close to the plant as possible. It contains all the cannabinoids such as Cannabidiol (CBD), CBDv (Cannabidivarin), CBG (Cannabigerol), CBC (Cannabichromene), CBT (Cannabicitran) and CBDa (Cannabidiolic acid), as well as the naturally-occurring terpenes, flavonoids, and Omega acids. These CBD oils also contain small amounts of THC, but they are non-psychoactive.

+ Size: 10ml Bottle
+ Strength: 5% to 20%
+ Type: Full-Spectrum CBD Oil
+ THC Content: Less than 0.2%
+ Oil Carrier: MCT Oil
+ Flavour: Natural or Peppermint
+ Dropper Type: Dropper or Pipette
+ Price: From £29.95 (10% Oil)

Their Raw CBD oils come in 10ml bottle and in three different strengths.

CBD (mg) Price Price / 10mg BUY
500mg (5%) £19.95 £0.399 BUY
1000mg (10%) £29.95 £0.299 BUY
2000mg (20%) £49.95 £0.249 BUY

Top Tip to Save Money: Whilst buying their 500mg CBD oil may sound like the right move as it is appears cheaper at only £19.95, we would recommend buying the 2000mg oil as the price per 10mg is 37% cheaper and therefore much better value for money especially in the long run.

2. Refined CBD Oils (THC-Free)

CBD Life UK have also more recently focused on Refined Hemp Extracts, which have all the properties of full-spectrum CBD oils, without any THC content. Developing a broad-spectrum oil makes complete sense as it offers a THC-free option and is usually better tasting than full-spectrum oils.

Their CBD oil is incredibly pure and comes from organic, non-GMO hemp. CBD Life UK really pride themselves on being a part of every step in the process and follow their hemp from seed to oil.

+ Size: 10ml Bottle
+ Strength: 5% to 20%
+ Type: Broad-Spectrum Oil
+ THC Content: THC Free
+ Oil Carrier: MCT oil
+ Flavour: Natural
+ Dropper Type: Dropper & Pipette
+ Price: £29.95 (10% CBD Oil)

Top Tip to Save Money: As is the case with their full spectrum CBD oils, their refined oils are available in three different strengths and going for the 2000mg oil will be cheaper in the long run.

CBD (mg) Price Price / 10mg BUY
500mg (5%) £19.95 £0.399 BUY
1000mg (10%) £29.95 £0.299 BUY
2000mg (20%) £49.95 £0.249 BUY

3. Aqua Drops (Water Soluble)

CBD Life UK raw hemp Aqua Drops use Liposome technology to create a water-soluble CBD oil. The Liposome technology creates a higher absorption level compared to standard oil, due to our bodies being made up of 90% water.

Their aqua drops can be consumed either by leaving the oil under your tongue (sublingually) or by adding them to your favourite drink, hot or cold.

This oil may sound a little more expensive than their Raw and Refined ranges at £29.95 for a 4% concentration, but due to its higher absorption, this water soluble is actually very good value for money.

+ Size: 10ml Bottle
+ Strength: 4%
+ Type: Full-Spectrum
+ THC Content: Less than 0.2%
+ Dropper Type: Pipette
+ Price: £29.95 (4% CBD Oil)

4. Raw CBD Capsules (Full-Spectrum)
