Vitality CBD was founded in 2018, making it a relatively new UK brand. However, in that time, they’ve worked quickly and secured their place on the high street and online. Their complete range of oils, gummies, topicals, e-liquids and bath products is mainly available via their website, but select products can be found on Amazon or in Tesco and Lloyds Pharmacy. For the last two weeks, I’ve been using their 1200mg (4% strength) natural oral drops.
The 30ml bottle contains a hemp extract rich in cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids, suspended in a hemp seed carrier oil. As soon as I received the oil, I was impressed with the information provided. The box and small leaflet inside give details about everything you need to know to make the process of taking CBD super simple. It even includes useful recommendations for how much and how often to take it. Vitality CBD state that it’s certified as kosher, contains 0% THC and is extracted using a blend of supercritical and subcritical CO2 methods.
Per bottle, there are 600 drops, each containing approximately 2mg of CBD. One full dropper delivers 40mg of CBD, so I decided to take half a dropper in the morning and half a dropper in the evening to give me 40mg of CBD daily. I always try to take about 40mg with all CBD oils to provide a fair comparison between brands.

Who is Vitality CBD?
Vitality CBD is based in Birmingham and is dedicated to providing CBD products that offer an ‘everyday wellness solution’. In 2019, research conducted by CBD Intel found that Vitality CBD products were present in over 4,000 retail stockists, making them the best distributed UK brand. Vitality CBD took the leap and used this information to proclaim itself as ‘the UK’s leading CBD brand’.
They attribute their success to a combination of their knowledge of the industry and their unrelenting commitment to it. They’ve also worked hard to produce oils that ‘harness the natural synergy’ of the hemp plant while still being affordable and easy to use.
3rd Party Lab Tests
Vitality CBD allows you to search through their database of lab reports to find the one that relates directly to your batch. The batch number is included on the bottom of the box; mine was WO020496. However, if you want to view the certificates before making a purchase you can head to the Lab Report tab on the main menu and click ‘view sample report’.
The certificates themselves are very basic and only include a profile of cannabinoids. Some brands opt for more detailed versions that can include a contaminant screening and a profile of terpenes.
Three cannabinoids were detected; CBD, CBDa and CBDV. No THC was found, demonstrating that it contains less than the lowest detectable value of 0.0025%. This confirms that the sample meets the UK legal limit of 1mg THC per container.
Underneath the profile, there is a sentence included to interpret the 4.2992% of CBD. ‘This equates to 1187mg/30ml for CBD, based on a measured density of 0.920g/ml.’ This is useful information and verifies that the actual amount of CBD is close to that advertised. From looking at the lab reports and information on the website I am unsure whether the extract used in this oil is either an isolate or broad-spectrum (THC free but contains a range of other naturally occurring cannabinoids).
Ease of Use
The bottle is relatively easy to use; it comes with a child-safe cap, a simple dropper and clear measurements on the side to help you take an accurate serving. The detailed instructions on the box and on the website make the process of taking the oil considerably smoother. For me, being able to squeeze half a dropper under my tongue instead of having to count out drops is ideal.
This is a pleasant, mild-flavoured oil. At first, there’s almost no taste, but after a few seconds, you’ll notice a gentle walnut flavour. It gets a little sharper as you hold it in your mouth, but there’s no bitterness or strong taste of hemp.
Vitality CBD Oil Effectiveness
This isn’t the most potent oil I’ve tried, but I did notice several useful effects. I experienced fewer symptoms of anxiety and it took the edge of some of my tension headaches. I found it particularly effective for sleep; most nights, I saved my second 20mg serving for about half an hour before bed. After repeating this for about three days, I saw a significant improvement in how quickly I fell asleep and how rested I felt in the morning.
Value for Money
A 30ml bottle of 1200mg CBD oil is £19.99, which is an impressively low price and works out at about 1.7p per mg. This makes it one of the cheapest oils in the UK and it’s only slightly more expensive than the budget oil spray from Access CBD, which comes in at £16.99 for 30mls and 1200mg.
This isn’t an organic product, but it appears to be well made, affordable and I found it relatively effective. It’s not exceptionally potent, but at this price, it offers incredible value.
Would I Buy Again?
Yes, I would buy this oil again. The price is excellent and despite only a few cannabinoids showing on the lab reports, I found it to be somewhat effective.
Whilst this oil was certainly good, it didn’t quite score high enough to be included in our best UK CBD oils article where the bar is set very high. As Vitality CBD oil only uses organic hemp, it cannot be included in our best organic CBD oil reviews.
This affordable oil has an enjoyably mild walnutty flavour and produces several useful results. It’s easy to use and comes with a child-safe cap and a clearly marked dropper. The carrier oil is made with hemp seed and the hemp has been extracted with CO2 to leave a beneficial blend of cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids. The third-party lab results are available for each batch and detected three cannabinoids and no THC.
