From face oils to chocolate, we test health and beauty products with ‘wonder drug’ CBD – The Sun

STARS such as Jennifer Aniston and Kim Kardashian swear by cannabidiol oil (CBD) to boost the immune system, and now it is being hailed as a beauty hero.

The global market is valued at tens of billions of pounds. Here are some health and beauty products that carry the 'wonder drug'.

Health with Jane Atkinson

MONTANA No.1 CBD Tincture claims to help with anxiety, stress and depression.

While it is not a cure, it can improve symptoms and helps to regulate other systems in our body, such as sleep, appetite, mood and pain.

A few drops under the tongue each day and I felt calm yet clear. (£95, 15ml,

GREEN Goddess Bliss Bar is made from 54 per cent dark chocolate and natural vanilla flavouring.

It also contains 10mg of The Tonic CBD.

The idea? Serotonin is released when you eat chocolate, while you get stress relief from the CBD. With 225kcal, it was delicious – though it is pricier than ordinary chocolate. (£3.99, 50g,

KOLIBRI CBD Cocktails are tasty and alcohol-free.

Their health benefits range from relaxation and clarity to general wellbeing.

Available in smoky tasting Dark Forest and  zesty Citrus Grove, they are best served over ice. (£5.99, 300ml,

Beauty with Gabriella Stein

BUDGET: (Bybi CBD Booster, £12, 15ml, – A calming face oil, high in antioxidants and ideal for sensitive or blemish-prone skin.

It has a slight earthy scent and contains just two ingredients – hemp seed oil and cannabidiol.

Can be used alone or added to your moisturiser.

This soothed my skin, particularly on days when I suffered breakouts.

MID: (Herbivore Emerald Deep Moisture Glow Oil, £42, 29ml, – This is a lightweight oil containing cannabis sativa seed oil, cannabis essential oil and antioxidant-rich ingredients such as wild shitake mushroom and squalene.

It has an earthy and slightly sweet smell and the non-greasy formula absorbed well.

It balanced my oily skin after just a few days. My favourite.

LUXURY: (Radical Skincare Rejuvafirm CBD Facial Oil £64, 30ml reduced from £80, – Promises to soothe irritation, encourage cell activity and correct the appearance of sun damage.

I found this super-nourishing and it appeared to plump the skin out, disguising finer lines.

Worth the price tag.
