If you take a look at the results you may be a little bit confused, as I was, because the lab used mg/kg as a unit to present the amount of cannabinoids. However, it’s very easy to convert those numbers into percentages. Therefore, 47,822 mg/kg of CBD becomes 4.78 percent of CBD (both as CBD and CBDA). CBDA is an acidic form of CBD and it has some health benefits. For example, it can lower systemic inflammation in the body.
Besides CBD, Jacob Hooy CBD+ 5% contains also other cannabinoids, but, and that is the most important information, it does not contain any illegal amounts of intoxicating substances like THC that could cause psychedelic reactions.
What do the lab test results say?
Jacob Hooy’s Third Party Lab Results
I feel obligated to say that the batch number of my product (which I found on a label on a bottle) is 057089. Nonetheless, this number is nowhere to be found on the lab test results sent to me by the company. Still, I do trust Jacob Hooy that it has sent me the lab test results for my product. Unfortunately, those were the only laboratory analyses I’ve received. I didn’t see any results of the inspection whether this product contains any heavy metals or pesticides. However, according to Jacob Hooy, its products are organic.
To my surprise the effects I’ve obtained from using that oil were very similar to the effects I got last time I tried it. I felt a bit calmer and I was able to keep my anxiety at bay. The only difference was that this time I haven’t noticed a change in my dream pattern. Usually, CBD oils trigger in me very creative dreams, which I can easily recollect in the morning. Unfortunately, this time, using this oil, I didn’t have any unusual dreams.

If you don’t know Holland and Barrett, they have been trading for more than 145 years. While they offer convenient access to a wide range of reasonably priced health products, they have a poor reputation for online customer service.
Jacob Hooy 5% Oil Taste
There are clear directions on the bottle and suggestions on how much to take when you start. I would also like to see some information about recommended amounts in mg. Also some clarity on how many mg of CBD one drop delivers. I worked this out to be 2.5mg.
Simply stating that the tests have been completed is not good enough. For products such as these, evidence should be clearly available so that customers can be 100% sure that they have got what they’ve paid for. I followed up a couple of times for more details and they did not respond with further information.
When using this oil, I found it to be good as a standard, no frills product. To make make this a regular purchase I would need a lot more information. The only indication that it is full-spectrum came when we contacted Holland & Barrett directly.
