With a commitment to provide reliable advice you can trust on all things Cannabidiol, CBD4Beginners is a UK consumer advice site rapidly growing in popularity.
We are not tied to any brand or organisation which means we can retain our impartiality and ensure you always get honest, trustworthy opinions on the effectiveness of CBD, it’s possible side effects, and the best brands on the market.
Our UK CBD store reviews help you cut through the noise and work out which brands are worth trusting in this rapidly expanding market.
While CBD has technically been legal in the UK since 1971, it is only in the last few years that we’ve seen a boom in the number of CBD products available.
On noticing this market growth and the amount of fake news and misinformation that came with it, CBD4Beginners was created in August with the intention to start putting things right.
Our founder, Paul, was tired of seeing often wild and dangerous claims made by unscrupulous CBD brands. On the other end of the scale, those with a vested interest in the market failing spread rumours and mistruths about CBD.
CBD4Beginners was therefore created to shine a light on the industry. To give the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. We’ve analysed countless clinical studies, user stories, and manufacturer claims to bring you one of the most complete CBD resources in the UK.
We are not owned by any CBD brands. We retain our impartiality and only provide information we believe to be 100% factual and correct. If we recommend a product, it is because we genuinely believe it to be in the visitor’s interest.
While CBD4Beginners was founded by Paul, much of the content is written by an experienced team of CBD enthusiasts. From those interested in the science behind it all through to those who love trying and testing CBD products, we have a team with broad experience and viewpoints.
Our number one aim is to help consumers get the most accurate and up to date information about CBD and the industry.
How Do We Make Money?
As with any website, we have a number of bills we need to cover. From our hosting costs through to the various images we use. That’s not to mention that our own team needs to be paid for the time they spend. Researching and writing about CBD responsibly takes a lot of time and effort.
To cover this, many CBD sites are funded by companies within the industry. Unfortunately, this leads to biased and often inaccurate information appearing on such sites. We have never been interested in this.
We also don’t believe that websites should become cluttered with banner advertisements and pop-up windows. What’s the point in visiting a website if your experience makes you frustrated and angry?
Instead, we primarily use affiliate marketing to make money from CBD4Beginners. What this means is that occasionally, when you click on a link on our website and go on to buy selected products, we may receive a small commission.
It doesn’t affect the price you pay and it does not affect what we say about a brand or the rating we give it (many of our most recommended products do not earn us any money whatsoever). Any money we receive gets invested back into making CBD4Beginners the best UK CBD resource on the web.
