Vitality CBD recommends: the best CBD starter packs
Everyone’s CBD journey has a different starting point, but it can be tricky deciding to buy CBD. Even as CBD continues to grow, with over 1.3 million active users in the UK, there aren’t many clear signposts to guide you. That’s why we’ve made it easy for you.
Part of the mystery surrounds what CBD products to take, and how often to use them. The most important point to understand upfront is that CBD has a “good safety profile” (as discussed in this report by the World Health Organization), with an incredibly low toxicity rate. That means combining multiple CBD products for everyday coverage isn’t just accepted, it’s something we encourage.
Over the course of this blog post we’ll discuss bioavailability, before laying out two of our bestselling product combinations. Have you had your own experiences with using multiple Vitality CBD products? Why not let us know on our contact page, or even in a review on our CBD shop page.
Bioavailability & cannabidiol
When we discuss any of our CBD products, the first word that comes to mind is bioavailability. Put simply, this is the amount of any given ingested compound that your body can actually practically make use of. The quicker the path to your circulatory system, the higher the bioavailability.
This is largely dictated by your choice of ingestion method. If you dip your fingers in a CBD Oral Drops versus letting it soak into the blood vessels beneath your tongue then you’ll notice remarkably different effects. Our goal at Vitality CBD is to ensure you always use the most effective method for the product in question.
A higher bioavailability essentially means your body is making use of more of the CBD, cannabinoids and terpenes in your oil. However, some CBD products like CBD topicals and cosmetics take a different route by targeting the endocannabinoid receptors in your skin rather than aiming for the circulatory system.
That’s why we’ve compiled these two starter packs. For each one we’ll take you through the products we’ve paired together and explain why we think they go so well as a duo. First up: our user’s favourite combination, and our original starter pack.
The Vitality CBD Starter Pack
People often ask what product we’d recommend to start with, or what CBD oil the Vitality CBD team use most, so we began to compile together our answers. The most common product we came back with was, in fact, a two product combination. That’s where our starter pack idea came from.
Our first and best-selling combination is our CBD Oral Spray and our CBD Skin Cream. These two are perfectly complementary because of how they work in conjunction. Both products are designed for daily use, but with different methods of delivery and different ideal dosing times. Let’s find out more.
CBD Oral Spray
Our CBD Oral Spray is the ideal starting point for anyone new to CBD. The spray applicator means the CBD is applied as a fine mist in one of three flavours, making it light and easy to ingest beneath your tongue. This is aided by our chosen carrier oil, MCT (coconut) oil, which further masks the hemp taste with a mellow flavour.
The Oral Spray has a great bioavailability due to its application process. Simply lift your tongue and apply a few sprays there. Wait for around 90 seconds until all of the CBD oil has been absorbed. The blood vessels there enable the CBD to reach your circulation quicker, meaning it takes 30 minutes to take effect, with a duration of 6 hours.
Our research has shown that the most satisfied CBD users are those on dosages of at least 80mg a day. That's why we now recommend all users start out with a 1200mg spray, to ensure they start with a high dosage. As part of our starter pack, 1200mg works perfectly alongside the 300mg CBD Skin Cream as a smooth way to ensure you're satisfied with your CBD experience from the start.
CBD Skin Cream
Our CBD Skin Cream is composed of a hand-selected series of ingredients designed to become a central part of your daily moisturising routine. Each of these component parts also support the spread and release of CBD across your skin each morning and evening.
Whilst the Skin Cream has a lower bioavailability than the Oral Spray, it serves a different purpose. Instead of reaching the bloodstream it interacts with the cannabinoid receptors in your skin, acting in a wholly different way to the CBD Oral Spray. Due to its external application, the CBD will take around an hour to take effect, and then lasts roughly 5 hours.
CBD Oral Spray & Skin Cream together
We’ve found that the CBD Oral Spray and CBD Skin Cream work great together due to their differences. The Skin Cream works with your skin, whilst the Oral Spray reaches your entire internal network. Likewise, the spray is perfect for using on the go as a way of dosing throughout the day, whilst the skin cream is great for applications in the morning and evening.
We’ve also selected our award-winning lemon flavour Oral Spray out of the three flavours available. With its fresh citrus zing, it covers over the hemp taste and makes sure every spray is delicious.

Vitality CBD Vape Pack
Whilst our first starter pack is perfect for those entirely new to the world of CBD, we also recognise that our users have different needs and desires. That’s why we’ve put together this second pack with our Broad Spectrum CBD E-liquid and CBD Muscle Balm, based on our experience with vapers.
Broad Spectrum CBD E-liquid
Our Broad Spectrum CBD E-liquid is our go-to e-liquid recommendation for vapers that want to give CBD a go for the first time. It comes in three delicious flavours, and it’s a little less thick than a whole plant extract, making it a light and easy vape throughout the day.
The fact that it’s broad spectrum is also significant, because that means it retains the full range of helpful hemp cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids as well as CBD, without any THC. Since vaping CBD gives it a high bioavailability, that means all of these compounds reach your bloodstream faster.
Effects typically come on within a few minutes, and last a few hours, which makes our e-liquids perfect for regular use. To ensure you get the most out of your CBD we recommend starting out with the 1200mg Broad Spectrum CBD E-liquid, and using a Muscle Balm to support the rest of your dosage.
CBD Muscle Balm
Our Muscle Balm is our ultimate topical application. Where our CBD Skin Cream is ideal for using as a full skin moisturiser twice a day, our Muscle Balm is best used after workouts or light exercise. The blend of organic essential oils ensures an easy application and a fresh fragrance.
We set the amount of CBD in our CBD Muscle Balm at 300mg, making it perfect as a means of supporting your dosage from your vaping. Due to how it interacts with the endocannabinoid receptors in the skin, like the Skin Cream the CBD will take an hour to be felt, and last roughly 5 hours. There’s no need to only apply it in a localised area - massage it across your body for the full impact.
CBD E-liquid and Muscle Balm together
As with our other starter pack, we’ve selected these two products because we believe they complement one another perfectly. Where the Broad Spectrum CBD E-liquid is perfect for using regularly throughout the day, the CBD Muscle Balm only needs to be applied at one or two key intervals each day. Together they ensure you’ll have full-day CBD coverage.
We’ve chosen our lemon flavoured CBD vape juice because it’s our most acclaimed flavour. The citrus taste works great to mask the earthy hemp flavour, and guarantees an easy vape all day.
