About Honest Hemp 2000mg CBD Oil (MCT)

Honest Hemp is one of the only UK companies focused on creating a full UK supply-chain from seed to CBD products. Whilst the company still sources its CBD from the US (Colorado), they have invested heavily in the UK to perfect the cultivation and agricultural innovation of their CBD.

Honest Hemp CBD oil is made of broad-spectrum CBD and contains no artificial preservatives, no GMOs and no pesticides. As such, their CBD products have 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, but they are 100% THC free, making it the ideal product for those who do no want to ingest THC.

All their CBD oils focus on maximising the entourage effect – a physiological phenomenon wherein the properties of active hemp compounds appear to be more powerful when consumed together rather than by themselves individually – through the preservation of synergy between the plants cannabinoids, terpenoids and flavonoids.

When buying CBD oil, they give their customers the choice between standard dropper pipettes or sprays, as they believe that sprays are better, less fiddly and more convenient than dropper pipettes.

Wide Range of CBD Oils & Flavours

Honest Hemp offers one of the widest ranges of products when it comes to their CBD oils. For their 10ml bottles, you will have the choice of different strengths – from 5% to 30% – as well as different flavours and oil carriers.

Flavour & Strength Carrier Price
Orange 1% MCT Oil £14.99
Orange 2% MCT Oil £24.99
Natural 5% Hemp Seed £19.99
Natural 10% Hemp Seed £34.99
Natural 15% Hemp Seed £49.99

Natural 15% MCT Oil £49.99
Natural 20% MCT Oil £59.99
Peppermint 5% MCT Oil £19.99
Peppermint 10% MCT Oil £34.99

Their 500mg CBD oils (5%) retails at £19.99 (£0.04 per mg of CBD), their 1000mg oil at £34.99 (£0.035 per mg of CBD) and their 3000mg oil at £99.99 (£0.033 per mg of CBD).

When comparing the price and strength of their CBD oils, going for a higher potency works out cheaper in the long run as a person using 20g of CBD per day will spend £0.80 per day using their 500mg CBD oil and £0.67 per day when using their 2000mg oil, a saving of 16% when going for the higher potency oil.

Larger Bottles Available

It’s also worth noting that Honest Hemp also offers larger bottles (30ml and 100ml) and the option of buying a CBD spray rather than the standard dropper pipette.

How Does Honest Hemp CBD Oil Taste?

Whilst the most popular way to consume CBD is by using CBD tincture (oil), they often have a more earthy, nutty, woody or grass-like taste which is down to the fact the product is natural, safe, and non-toxic.

If you are choosing a flavoured CBD oil such as peppermint or orange, the CBD oil will usually have a sweet taste masking the natural flavour of hemp. However, it’s always interesting to look at how their natural CBD oil tastes.

Natural Oil: Outstanding Flavour Profile

When trying to assess the flavour profile of a CBD oil, it is useful to look at the colour of the oil as it is often an indicator of how strong the the product is – usually the darker the oil, the stronger the taste.

The first thing we noticed is that their CBD oil is incredibly light and translucent, with a slight hint of yellow. In our experience, a lighter colour often indicates a more palatable CBD oil and in the case of Honest Hemp, this was definitely the case.

When swallowing the oil after leaving it under the tongue for 30-60 seconds, your taste buds will barely be hit by the usual grass-like taste of CBD oils. Their CBD oil almost has hints of rosemary and it is very fresh and zesty which probably comes from the natural flavour profile of the CBD extracts and the hemp seed oil carrier they use. So all in all, this CBD oil has a very mild flavour profile which is quite enjoyable for a change, especially when you know how strong and unpleasant other CBD oils can be.

The second positive news when it comes to the taste of their CBD oil is that you will not experience any bitter aftertaste. As soon as you swallow your saliva after leaving the oil under your tongue for 60 seconds, the taste of the oil will disappear almost instantly!

Now whilst we expect all unflavoured CBD oils to have a strong natural hemp flavour and potentially a bitter aftertaste, we have to admit that Honest Hemp did an amazing job when it comes to the flavour profile of their CBD oil.

This could be explained by a few factors:

  • Broad-Spectrum: broad-spectrum CBD oils go through an additional refinement process which removes the unwanted THC, waxes, and chlorophyll. By removing the waxes and chlorophyll, the oil becomes more palatable.
  • Oil Carrier: The oil carrier can play a major role in the taste of the CBD oil. The fact that we chose a product containing Hempseed oil instead of MCT or Olive oil, may have played a part in the overall taste of their CBD oil.
  • Hemp Origin: Honest Hemp states that they source their hemp from Colorado but also farm their own hemp in the UK. It could be that using UK hemp or mixing two different strains from two different countries (US and UK) influences the flavour profile of the end product.

Orange Flavour: Our Verdict

We personally think that CBD oil is the best way to consume CBD as it gets absorbed quickly into the bloodstream in comparison to other products such as CBD capsules or gummies, which have to go through the digestive track. However, if you don’t like the taste of unflavoured CBD oil, even with an oil as mild as Honest Hemp, then you’ll be pleased to know that all their oils are available in two delicious flavours: Orange and Peppermint.

We gave Honest Hemp Orange flavoured CBD oil a go and absolutely loved it. It reminded us of the taste of Terry’s Chocolate Orange which is simply delicious and leaves a sweet aftertaste in your mouth!

Honest Hemp CBD Oil Value for Money

Not only do we think that Honest Hemp has developed a CBD oil that is efficient and great tasting, but they’ve also been incredibly sensible when it comes to their pricing, making it a great value for money CBD oil.

A person between 150 and 240 lbs may need between 20mg and 40mg of CBD per day depending on the severity of their symptoms. A 10ml bottle of their 1,000mg CBD oil (retail: £34.99) will therefore last between 25 and 50 days and cost between £0.70 and £1.40 per day (with free shipping over £30), which we think is incredible value for money when compared to other CBD brands in our Top 10.

Based on 20mg of CBD per day, here’s how the Top 10 CBD brands stack-up in terms of daily cost:

Strength Price Daily Cost
Love Hemp 10% £99.99 £0.66
Medterra 10% £99.99 £0.67
Honest Hemp 10% £34.99 £0.70
CBDfx 5% £64.99 £0.80
Holistic Hemp 10% £40.00 £0.91
Love CBD 10% £99.99 £1.00
Four Five CBD 6% £107.99 £1.08
Naturecan 10% £54.99 £1.10
Provacan 12% £69.95 £1.25
Hempura 10% £64.99 £1.30
Blessed CBD 10% £74.99 £1.50
Bud & Tender 10% £80.00 £1.60

So heavy CBD users will need to place an order every month, whilst mild users may be able to push this to 2 months.

Advantages of Honest Hemp CBD Oil

Honest Hemp CBD oil has many advantages over other CBD products such as CBD capsules or CBD gummies.

  • Increased bioavailability – One of the main advantages of CBD oil over other products is the fact that CBD oil increases bioavailability – which means the amount of product that can be directly used by your body. The faster the CBD is absorbed, the sooner it can get to work. Gummies and edibles will take some time to be processed and broken down by your digestive system, making oil the fastest way to gain the benefits of CBD. When placed under the tongue, it comes into contact with the sublingual gland which speeds up the process of absorption and quickly enters the bloodstream.
  • Easy to Consume – When taken orally, CBD oil is very easy to consume and it also gives you the ability to use doses of the exact strength required thanks to the individual droplets.
  • No Sugar – When CBD is used in the form of gummies, chocolate or other edible products, it may not be in the best health interests of the person to eat such products. For example, people suffering from diabetes will need to carefully manage the food that they eat, and therefore CBD oil may be a better option.
  • No addictive or withdrawal issues – Finally, CBD gummies are a natural remedy that can be taken by almost anyone and possesses none of the addictive or withdrawal issues that other pain management or anxiety medications may present.

Honest Hemp CBD Oil Dosage 

CBD doesn’t have one-size-fits-all dosing and calculating a proper dosage of CBD can be tough as our bodies react to it differently.

The four major factors affecting your CBD dosage are:

  • Your weight
  • The condition being treated (i.e. depression, chronic pain etc)
  • The severity of your condition
  • The concentration of CBD oil

Most brands recommend customers start with the lowest dose and increase until they find the right serving size that fits their needs. The most common starting amount is between 10mg and 25mg. For anxiety and depression, the dose can vary from 20mg to 50mg or more.

As a rule of thumb, a person weighting between 10.5 and 17 stones (approximately 150 and 240 lbs) may need between 20mg and 40mg of CBD per day depending on the severity of their symptoms.

36-68kgs 68-108kgs >108 kgs
Low 10mg 20mg 40mg
Medium 15mg 30mg 50mg
High 20mg 40mg 60mg

* FSA Guideline: The FSA recommends that healthy adults do not take more than 70mg of CBD daily, unless advised by a doctor.

Taking it first thing in the morning on an empty stomach to see how your body reacts to it is also recommended. If you are not seeing any major benefits with a single drop, increase your intake by a single drop every 2 or 3 days until finding the right balance to treat your personal symptoms.

How Many Drops Should You Take?

Most bottles of CBD oil contain 10ml of product and come in strengths ranging from 300mg to 2,400mg – also known as 3% and 24% CBD oils. This simply means that in a 1ml drop of the 300mg bottle, you will have 30mg of CBD, whilst the same 1ml of the 2,400mg bottle will give you 8 times that amount for a total of 240mg of CBD.

So assuming you need to hit 25mg of CBD per day with a 10ml bottle, you will need:

CBD / Bottle CBD / Drop # Drops
500mg 1.25mg 20 drops
1000mg 2.5mg 10 drops
1800mg 4.5mg 5.5 drops
2400mg 6.0mg 4 drops

Assuming you are using the 500mg CBD oil for a daily dose of 25mg, you will need to take approximately 20 drops per day (25mg divided by 1.25mg per drop). You could break this down throughout the day by taking 8 drops first thing in the morning on an empty stomach, 6 drops early afternoon and 6 drops at night before going to bed.

If however you bought the 2400mg CBD oil for a daily dose of 25mg, you would only need to take 4 drops per day (25mg divided by 6mg per drop), which you could also spread across the day – 2 in the morning, one in the afternoon and one in the evening.

Is it Possible to Ingest Too Much CBD?

With CBD becoming an ever growing market, the Food Standards Agency (FSA) has classified CBD as a food supplement and issued a number of recommendations on its website. It is the first country in the world to set recommended limits for CBD consumption and to advise against taking CBD for vulnerable groups – including pregnant women and people taking existing medication.

For healthy adults, the FSA recommends not to take more than 70mg a day, unless it has been advised by a doctor. To put this into perspective, this is about 28 drops of 5% CBD or 14 drops of 10% CBD. This advice is based on the latest scientific information available to the FSA and levels given are for an average 70kg adult so one could deduct that the FSA has set a maximum target of 1mg of CBD per kg of bodyweight.

However, it is worth noting that several studies have found CBD to be safe at higher doses.

Honest Hemp CBD Reviews

By focusing on developing a wide range of good quality broad-spectrum and isolate CBD products priced well below some of their other competitors, Honest Hemp have become a well-respected CBD brand in the UK. The company has just over 80 verified reviews on Trustpilot, with an average rating of 4.6 out of 5. This is a good rating, although we would have expected a company established in 2015 to have hundreds, if not thousands of reviews by now.

Is CBD Oil Legal?

CBD oil is legal in the UK as long as the plant which have been grown contain less than 0.2% of THC, the legal limit in the UK. The reason for this is that THC is known to be a psychotropic substance and limiting the amount of THC ensures that CBD is safe to consume and will not have any psychoactive effects. In other words, CBD won’t get you “high”.

Personal Use

You will not be arrested or fined for buying, consuming or carrying CBD products, anywhere in the UK, as long as it has less than 0.2% THC in it.

What is illegal is to grow the hemp plant(s) yourself, at home. Growth for personal use is strictly prohibited by the Misuse of Drugs Act of 1971. To do so, could result in up to 5 years in prison and/or an unlimited fine.

New Regulations & Guidelines

As CBD is eaten or drunk it falls under “novel foods”, which means that the Food Standards Agency (FSA) oversees CBD products and they can therefore enforce new laws and regulations and they have recently done so.

Since the 31st of March 2021, all CBD products must be approved by the FSA in order to be sold in the UK. Failure to do so will result in the products being removed from the shelf. This request for approval means that the exact ingredients within a CBD will be known, making it safer for the general public.

Honest Hemp CBD Oil Lab Reports

As a CBD company, Honest Hemp plays the transparency card with their customers.

Since many CBD products contain pesticides, herbicides, mould, fungi and dangerous mycotoxins, Honest Hemp are working closely with Phytovista Labs, a leading CBD laboratory testing service, to test all their CBD oils.

In addition to being sourced and extracted from the highest-grade certified organic US hemp, they guarantee that their products are 100% organic and free of synthetic ingredients.

They allow customers to see their Certificates of Analysis online for each product line available in their site. Each lab report then breaks down the potency of cannabinoids, the presence of terpenes and flavonoids, as well as the absence of heavy metals, mycotoxins, pesticides or microbes.

Health Benefits of Honest Hemp CBD Oil

The human body contains a specialized system called the ECS (the endocannabinoid system), which aim is to regulate a variety of functions such as sleep, appetite, pain and immune system response. The body also produces endocannabinoids, which are simply neurotransmitters that bind to cannabinoid receptors in your nervous system.

CBD is believed to interact with specific receptors, specifically the 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.

Serotonin, or 5-HT, is a neurotransmitter that carries signals from one neuron to the other. CBD increases the level of serotonin, which, in return, helps reduce pain, reduce inflammation as well as provide a range of other health benefits, which include:

  • CBD for Pain Relief: CBD has analgesic (pain relief) properties and can help with many painful conditions such as arthritis, headache disorders, migraines, back pain or period pain.
  • CBD for Sleep: CBD has a calming effect on both the mind and the body, allowing people to fall asleep more easily and stay asleep throughout the night.
  • CBD for Stress: CBD helps reduce stress and calm both the body and mind, through its interaction with both the Hippocampus and the Amygdala.
  • 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 for Headaches: CBD reduces the frequency of headaches as well as reduce stress and improve sleep, two major triggers of headaches. But CBD also has strong analgesic (pain relief) and antiemetic (prevent vomiting) properties which can help people with headache disorders during an attack.
  • CBD for Arthritis: CBD has antiarthritic, analgesic (pain relief) as well as anti-inflammatory properties and as such is a great option for people suffering from arthritis.
  • CBD for Cancer: CBD helps relieve some of the symptoms of cancer as well as reducing the side of effects of cancer medication such as nausea, vomiting and pain.
  • CBD for Epilepsy: CBD helps reduce the frequency and intensity of seizures in epileptic patients, and may also counteract some of the side effects of traditional anti-epileptic.
