The European cannabidiol (CBD) industry boomed in the last few years. New CBD manufacturers enter the market each month, so it can be hard to find trustworthy CBD shops.

Strain Insider wants to help you buy the best CBD products, so we decided to review Europe’s top CBD companies. You can find our previous review here. Today, we’re taking a closer look at one of the leading UK-based CBD shops, CBD Shopy.
CBD Shopy company overview
CBD Shopy is based in Hampshire, UK. The company was founded after one of the investors’ wife discovered that CBD could help her relieve some of the aches she had as a result of Chronic Lyme disease.
Overwhelmed by the number of shady CBD products crowding the UK market, the founders incorporated CBD Shopy in 2019 to make high-quality CBD available to the local public.
CBD Shopy manufactures some CBD products, but its online shop also features products made by other brands. All the products available on the website meet the following criteria:
- Third-party lab reports — The products have to be tested by reputable, independent third-party labs.
- Organic, regulated hemp — Only brands that use organic, regulated hemp in the manufacturing process are featured on the website.
- High manufacturing standards — Only products that are made in ISO or GMP-certified facilities and meet the industry standards are included on the website.
- Stellar customer feedback — All the featured brands have great reviews on independent review websites like Trustpilot.
- Industry association — Featured brands are actively consulting with authorities in the cannabis industry to make sure that their products benefit their customers.
- Decent prices — CBD Shopy makes sure that the products featured on the website have a good quality-price ratio.
As stated before, CBD Shopy also makes its own products. The company’s CBD products are made out of organic, non-GMO hemp that’s sourced from regulated cultures in Europe. All the products are made respecting the industry standards in an ISO-certified facility that’s based in Britain.
CBD Shopy website
CBD Shopy has a nice looking website that’s neatly organised in different sections and features a helpful search function. The website features an online store, a ‘CBD brands’ section where you can view all the products made by different featured brands, a section explaining the shop’s delivery and returns service, a blog section and an About section.
One of the things that make CBD Shopy’s online store stand out from its competitors is the fact that it gives shoppers the possibility to choose between buying a single product or buying a monthly subscription and having the product delivered on a monthly basis, for a minimum of two months.
The subscription option offers discounts that can come in handy for those who plan on using the same product for several months.
CBD Shopy products
CBD Shopy manufactures its own products and sells high-quality products from reputable CBD brands. Its online shop is neatly divided into five categories: drops, capsules, gummies, tea and cream.
The brand’s own Full Spectrum CBD Oil comes in three popular strengths — 100 mg, 500 mg and 1,000 mg — so CBD enthusiasts can find products that are suitable for their needs and tolerance levels. Unfortunately, CBD Shopy’s full spectrum oil is peppermint-flavoured, so it’s not the ideal product for those who don’t enjoy the taste of peppermint.

The CBD oil is made using CO2 extraction, the best possible extraction method currently available for cannabis products. The oil is thoroughly tested in an independent lab, so you can rest assured that it’s free of contaminants, such as heavy metals, pesticides, solvents, herbicides and so on. Each batch of CBD oil is tested independently, and you can find the lab analysis for each batch in the product’s description.
One of the things we like about CBD Shopy’s oil is that it’s full-spectrum, which means that it’s rich in many cannabinoids other than CBD. Cannabinoids work synergistically, and their effects become stronger when you consume them together, a process known as the entourage effect.
CBD Shopy also makes a Broad Spectrum CBD Oil that comes in two strengths — 500 mg and 1,000 mg — and three flavours — natural hemp, berry and peppermint.
Besides oils, the company also makes CBD capsules. Its Full Spectrum CBD Capsules contain 600 mg of CBD per bottle or 10 mg of CBD per capsule.
Even though these are the only products made by CBD Shopy, its online shop is stacked with high-quality products from other reputable manufacturers such as Love CBD, cbdMD, ZenBears and CBDistillery, just to name a few.
Payment and delivery
CBD Shopy’s online store accepts online payments made with Visa, Mastercard and Maestro cards. The company also accepts payments made in Bitcoin.
At the moment, CBD Shopy only offers delivery for its UK customers. The company dispatches orders placed before 3 PM on the same day and offers free delivery on orders over £75.
Customers can return an order within 30 days. The returned items have to be unopened and sealed.
CBD Shopy has great reviews. You can find the reviews on its website, but you can also check out its Trustpilot profile. At the time of writing, the company has an average review score of 4.8/5 out of 700+ reviews.
Given the high quality of the products featured on the website, this score shouldn’t come as a surprise.
Final thoughts on CBD Shopy
CBD Shopy is a nice online marketplace for CBD enthusiasts. Even though the brand doesn’t make a lot of products, the ones it makes have great quality and come at decent prices. The company’s online store features other reputable brands, which can make it a one-stop-shop for many buyers.
