CBD has exploded in popularity over the past few years, and this wellness trend is showing no signs of slowing down. We've noticed a huge increase in CBD products sold by high street shops like Holland & Barrett and Boots, but much of what is sold in these shops are targeted towards beginners.
For stronger CBD products, you have to head online.
The issue is that when you look for strong CBD oil products online, it can actually be quite confusing trying to figure out the strengths of the products. That's why we wanted to round up the strongest CBD oil products we could find in the UK as of 2023, let's get into it:
Firstly, what do we mean by a strong CBD oil product?
Before we get into the list of the strongest CBD products, it is worth clarifying what we mean by strong CBD, because you might be surprised at some of the inclusions in the list.
A strong CBD oil product is one which has a high concentration of CBD and other plant compounds per ml. We found a number of isolate CBD products online which contained a lot of CBD per ml, but because they're CBD isolate products they won't contain any of the additional plant compounds which contribute to the strength of a product. This is why CBD paste is often considered stronger than CBD oils.
CBD oil products which contain these additional compounds fall into 2 categories - broad spectrum and full spectrum. Read more about these types of CBD products in this useful guide. It's also worth noting that stronger doesn't necessarily mean better, as everyone has different needs. We've actually previously rounded up what we believe to be the best CBD oils in the UK here.
Now let's look at the products:
CBDiablo Deity - 2000mg per 10ml
When looking at how strong a CBD oil product is, there are a number of factors to consider. As well as looking as the CBD content itself, it is also important to look at the additional plant compounds which are found within the oil, as these all contribute to the strength of the product.
That's why we think the Deity CBD oil from CBDiablo definitely deserves a spot in this list - yes, it only contains 2000mg CBD per 10ml bottle of oil which might not seem like a huge amount compared to other inclusions, but on top of this it's also a broad spectrum product (containing additional trace cannabinoids and compounds) and it's made with MCT oil, which makes it very easily absorbed into the system when ingested.
The oil also contains terpenes which gives the oil a very strong taste. It give you an instant feeling that this product really works. The reviews too are glowing for this brand.

Honey Heaven 5000mg CBD oil
The team at Honey Heaven proudly describes this product as the strongest CBD oil you can buy in the UK, and we think they might be right. At 5000mg of CBD per 10ml, which is roughly 25mg of CBD per single drop, it certainly contains a lot of CBD.
But it's the full spectrum status of this oil which really takes it to the next level - the small but legal amount of THC found in the oil (0.2%) as well as the other trace cannabinoids and plant compounds in each drop mean this product really packs a punch.
If we are being serious though, it seems that cannabinoids are not like medication where a high dose is more effective, most people do not need 25mgs per drop. The best place to go for a very strong CBD product is a paste or oil with added terpenes, a full spectrum of cannabinoids and nature hemp plant extracts.

2000mg Paste by The Long Leaf
What makes this particular product so strong is the added terpenes that The Long Leaf put into their extracts. Like the other extracts on this page, the paste is full-spectrum and it encourages the full benefits of the entourage effect.
The added terpenes influence the product enough to have a profound effect on the product. The night terpene paste is specifically powerful but the day paste also packs a punch.

Nordic Oil CBD paste - 2500mg per 5ml
CBD paste is just CBD which hasn't been diluted with oil, so it's the raw form of the product.
This means that it can really strong, as is definitely the case with this paste from Nordic Oil. Each 5ml syringe of this paste contains 2500mg, which is quite an enormous amount and is the highest concentration we've found in the UK.
This will definitely taste strong, perhaps too strong for some people as the raw CBD paste can have a really spicy kick to it. But if you're looking for strength, then this is ideal.

CBD paste by Provacan - 2500mg per 5ml
This CBD paste from Provacan is the same concentration as the paste from Nordic Oil at 2500mg per 5ml, and looking at the lab reports we can see that it also contains a number of trace cannabinoids such as CBG and CBC, all of which contribute to the strength of the product.
Once again, this isn't for the faint of heart and certainly not for beginners. Other than tasting like a handful of grass it is very, very strong.

Broad Spectrum Distillate with terpenes - 500mgs per 1ml
According to regular readers, distillate CBD oil is also among the strongest CBD oil products that you can buy in the UK.
Most CBD oils are produced using this kind of extract so it is possible to purchase a distillate and mix it with oil to make an oil stronger than you can currently buy on the market. It is a legitimate option if you like to be crafty.
Otherwise, you can use this syrupy extract just as you would use oil and place a small amount of the paste under your tongue.
We got this one based on a recommendation we found on reddit: https://hempcommunity.scot/
So as you can see, there are quite a few strong CBD products that you can buy in the UK... and this list doesn't look at the short but potent benefits of vaping CBD.
Remember though, stronger is not always better and if you're just getting started with CBD, we definitely wouldn't recommend one of the above! Let us know in the comments what you think of our article and what CBD products you have tried.
