CBD oil continues to grow in popularity in the UK, with lots of new products being launched on to the market and tried by customers as a result.
It is estimated that as many as six million people in the UK have already tried CBD – over 10 per cent of the population – and this number is rising all the time.
But with the market being unregulated it can sometimes be difficult to judge what you are buying, especially if you are new to buying CBD oil, and if it is going to be worth the money.
CBD oil can sometimes be quite expensive, so here are eight tips to save cash on CBD.
Don’t be afraid to pay for quality
Higher price tags should not necessarily put you off when you are shopping for CBD oil.
Cheaper products are often not particularly well made and you might not even want to use all the oil if you do not feel as though it is having any impact.
Any cost savings could therefore be cancelled out by customers buying different CBD products, so it is best to go straight for quality and try not to scrimp on price.
Look out for CBD oil coupons
Coupons are one of the best ways to save money on CBD oil in the UK as retailers are often offering promotions in a bid to attract new users.
As an example, CBD Oil retailer CBD Shopy is currently offering a 15 per cent coupon on their top-selling CBD oil products until 01-01-2020. Simply use coupon code “CBD15” on checkout.
At this time of the year there tend to be even more offers around, so keep your eyes peeled.
Buy in bulk where possible
Once you have found a CBD oil that works for you, it is recommended to buy it in bulk. This can be a good way to save money as retailers might well offer a discount, or a perk such as free delivery, if you opt to spend over a certain amount. Bulk offers might be on offer too.
CBD oil is not going to go off quickly – they usually keep for around 12 months or so as standard – so you can keep it stored away for when you need it. Just make sure you remember where you put it for when your current bottle is running on empty!
Refer new customers
As well as coupons, another way CBD retailers look to attract users is through references.
Some sites selling CBD oil will offer a discount if users are willing to refer their friends and family to the site, so look out for these as they can help to cut the cost of CBD oil quite significantly.
Recommendations from your loved ones are also a good way to find the right CBD oil for you.
Review the CBD products you love
Reviewing CBD products can be another way to cut the cost of the CBD oil you want to buy.
With the industry being unregulated by any official bodies, reviews of CBD oil are one of the best ways for customers to see exactly what they are buying.
People are much more likely to carry out a purchase if they can see someone has felt positive effects as a result of CBD oil.
Some sites selling CBD oil and associated products will offer you a discount on your next purchase if you are willing to give them an honest review of your experienced with CBD.
These should not take long at all to produce, so look out for these excellent opportunities.
Here is good example of Advance Biotech CBD reviews on TrustPilot.
Ignore liquid size – look for potency
One of the key ways to save money when shopping for CBD oil in the UK is to know when you are spotting the best value.
In general terms, customers should try not to pay too much attention to the size of the bottle as the biggest ones are not necessarily any better value than smaller bottles.
This is because the key thing when shopping for CBD oil is the price per mg of CBD, which in effect tells you how potent the product should be and how well it works as a result.
Of course, you are not going to get that ‘stoned’ or ‘high’ feeling from taking CBD oil due to the lack of THC in the products, but the price per mg of CBD remains the key.
Speaking in general terms, the lower the price per mg of CBD will be the best value to buy.
So a smaller bottle with a higher percentage of CBD will usually prove to be a better purchase than a larger bottle that includes a smaller proportion of CBD among its ingredients.
Join a loyalty or rewards scheme
Some sites selling CBD oil and associated products may have a loyalty or rewards scheme you can join. These work in a variety of ways but can lead to discounts being offered.
You will probably receive an email with details about a loyalty or rewards scheme after you have made a purchase of CBD oil on a site, so look out in your inbox for this arriving.
There is nothing stopping you from signing up to the loyalty or rewards schemes offered a range of CBD retailers either, to make sure you have the chance to save as much cash as possible.
Buying CBD oil should be treated just like any other purchase – shopping around is one of the best ways to find the top value on offer.
The same product might be sold at totally different price points on CBD websites so it is well worth taking a little bit of time to research.
Even if you spend an hour looking for the best CBD oil prices, the fact that you will be saving money when you do decide to make a purchase will make it all worthwhile.
And shopping around for CBD can introduce you to new products you may not otherwise see.
