CBD Oil is the oil extracted from the entire cannabis plant and then combined with a carrying oil, in our case that’s organic hemp seed oil. We have 2 strengths of Classic CBD Oil; 8% (800 mg of CBD in 10ml) and 25% (2500 mg CBD in 10ml) as well as a very special 3% CBG Enhanced CBD Oil.

How the CBD is taken is a matter of personal preference. Some love the taste of the oil, others prefer the more subtle taste of the water-soluble which can be mixed into food or drink without impacting flavour much or compromise the absorption rate. So if you’re not keen on the taste of oils, take the water soluble.

The benefits of CBD oils:

Using CBD oil, placing drops or spraying beneath the tongue is known as taking the oil sublingually. The advantage to taking the oil in this manner is that it allows the most vital components to be directly absorbed into the bloodstream and to your CB2 receptors without having to pass first through the digestive system.

The other main difference between oils and water solubles is that you can apply CBD Oils to your skin. Yes, they may be very bright in colour, but this does fade. Reasons you may want to rub CBD oil into your skin varies – whether it’s for healthy skin or post-exercise recovery. So the Oral CBD Oils can act as a 2 in 1!

Our Classic CBD oils have slightly different affects to the water soluble too, one being lifting the mood and increasing mind focus. But this said, everyone is different so how CBD oil affects one person, may differ to the next.


Our Water Soluble CBD is unique to The Tonic and other brands may sell a water soluble version, but they are often CBD Isolate (ie not full spectrum) so keep an eye out for that as the benefits are much less than with full spectrum CBD.

We do 2 strengths of Water Soluble CBD = 4% (400 mg of CBD per 10ml)  and 8% (800 mg of CBD per 10ml). Our water soluble CBD has the added extra benefit of increased anti inflammatory terpenes naturally occuring in the cannabis plant, such as curcumin, which is also found in tumeric and gives its popular wellbeing properties.

Our Water Soluble CBD is specially designed to be ingested so can be sprayed directly in the mouth and swallowed immediately or added to drink or food. It depends on what is easier for you. Because of the way the water soluble CBD is absorbed, the effects can be up to 10x more effective than the oil equivalent because your body is able to absorb almost 100% of the cannabinoids into your system. This is because the oil compounds have been reduced using a special technique, so they are small enough for the body to process through ingestion as it would any other food stuff that isn’t an oil.

It’s good for people who don’t like the taste of the oil or those who can’t hold it under their tongue. It’s also particularly calming and has the effects similar to the indica strain of cannabis although ours is always made from Cannabis Sativa L strain (naturally high in cannabinoids and low in THC).

Everyone is unique and the fact remains that everyone is in a different place and will react differently to their CBD dosage. As dosage of CBD differs for each person, it is best to start small and gradually increase at a comfortable level until you experience the desired result.
