Simply stating that the tests have been completed is not good enough. For products such as these, evidence should be clearly available so that customers can be 100% sure that they have got what they’ve paid for. I followed up a couple of times for more details and they did not respond with further information.
There are clear directions on the bottle and suggestions on how much to take when you start. I would also like to see some information about recommended amounts in mg. Also some clarity on how many mg of CBD one drop delivers. I worked this out to be 2.5mg.
Jacob Hooy 5% Oil Taste
When using this oil, I found it to be good as a standard, no frills product. To make make this a regular purchase I would need a lot more information. The only indication that it is full-spectrum came when we contacted Holland & Barrett directly.

While I would consider Holland & Barrett to be a trusted brand, anyone selling cannabinoids in any form should be able to produce third party lab tests at the point of sale. Soon, retailers who can’t prove what the oil contains won’t be able to sell their product.
Cannabidiol, more commonly known as CBD oil, is one of the fastest growing industries in the UK. No longer relegated to dropper bottles and capsules, you can slather the stuff on your hair in shampoo, chew it in vitamin gummies, and drink it in water, wine, or cold-brew coffee. You can even buy CBD-laced treats for your dog.
This is where things get interesting. Your brain and body houses a communications system called the endocannabinoid system (ECS) – named after the cannabis plant that led to its discovery – which is involved in regulating a bunch of really important physiological and cognitive processes, like appetite, sleep, immune system, mood and memory.
What Is CBD Oil?
Cannabidiol, or CBD, is a botanical extract from hemp plants (rather than marijuana plants) which means you won’t get high using CBD products. But it also means that you don’t have to meet a dodgy bloke in a dark-windowed Vauxhall Corsa to acquire them. After it has been extracted from the plant, CBD is diluted with a ‘carrier’ oil, often coconut or hemp seed oil. Et voila.
It’s weed, but not as you know it. You might already know that the cannabis plant contains more than 100 different naturally occurring compounds, known as cannabinoids. Hemp is a term used to classify varieties of cannabis that contain 0.3 per cent or less of THC – the psychoactive cannabinoid that makes you high – while marijuana refers to strains that contain more than 0.3 per cent.
Marketed as a miracle remedy, manufacturers contend that CBD oil provides relief from everything from chronic pain to depression and anxiety, but are those claims accurate? MH takes a closer look at the cannabis based phenomenon.
