CBD

CBD – also known as cannabidiol – is a compound derived from hemp and cannabis plants. Its impressive wellness and therapeutic potential have led to a boom in the industry that has seen this incredible cannabinoid added to a diverse range of products. Check out our range of CBD products below, from topicals and capsules to e-liquids and vape oils.

What is CBD?

CBD, or cannabidiol, is a compound derived from the Cannabis Sativa plant, including both cannabis and hemp. It is the second most common cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant, behind the psychoactive compound, THC. CBD has become increasingly popular in recent years, thanks to its multitude of medicinal and therapeutic properties that have made it a primary ingredient in the wellness world.

Our CBD products all contain hemp-derived cannabidiol that has been developed to promote the cannabinoid’s incredible wellness benefits. The versatility of CBD means that it can be effectively added to a huge number of products, allowing you to experience its potential in a variety of ways. So, what are you waiting for? Discovering the benefits of CBD has never been easier.

Is CBD Oil the Same as Hemp Oil?

While CBD and Hemp oils are both extracted from the hemp plant, they should not be considered the same product. Hemp oils may indeed contain small amounts of CBD; however, the quantities of CBD found in hemp oils are usually negligible. This is because the majority of hemp oils are derived from the seeds of the plant which contain little to no CBD.

However, some CBD products may contain both CBD extract and hemp extract. This is because hemp oil can be used as a carrier oil for CBD extracts – as is sometimes the case with CBD oils. While Hemp oils and extracts don’t contain significant amounts of CBD, they also have some impressive wellness potential of their own and contain a selection of crucial nutrients!

What are the Benefits of CBD?

CBD Is an incredibly versatile ingredient that has many wellness benefits. Its popularity over the last few years has seen CBD take not only the supplement sector, but also the edible, skincare, and vaping worlds by storm. People from all walks of life have now discovered the benefits of incorporating CBD into their wellness regime. Growing evidence has demonstrated that CBD could be useful for improving sleep, relieving stress and anxiety, and even helping to reduce inflammation.

If you are looking to hydrate and soothe your skin, you’re in luck – our range of CBD creams and balms inject a healthy dose of CBD directly where you need it most. On the other hand, if you are looking for more of a generalised effect, take your pick from our e-liquids, oils, edibles, and concentrates. Whatever your wellness aims, adding a daily dose of CBD is sure to yield impressive results. Take a look at our wide variety of CBD products and find the perfect option for you!

Is CBD Legal?

CBD is one of the most common cannabinoids produced by the hemp and cannabis plant. Despite its association with cannabis and unlike THC, however, CBD is a non-intoxicating ingredient. It is, therefore, completely legal in the UK and the majority of countries in Europe. Nonetheless, CBD products sold in the UK must meet several quality and safety criteria, so it is always recommended that you purchase from a trusted retailer – like Nectar!

Will CBD Get Me High?

Another question that persists due to the association between CBD and cannabis is: ‘Will CBD get me high?’. While this is a good question, it is actually very easy to answer. As mentioned before, CBD is not an intoxicating ingredient. Furthermore, while some CBD products may contain a range of other cannabinoids and terpenes, there are specific limits on the levels of THC permitted under UK law.

The vast majority of CBD products available in the UK are made from hemp plants that contain no more than 0.2% THC. When purchasing CBD products from a trusted retailer, you can be sure that they contain little to no THC – and certainly not enough to induce any kind of high or intoxication.

How Does it Work?

Like other cannabinoids, CBD interacts with the human endocannabinoid system – a system of endocannabinoids, receptors and enzymes that are expressed throughout the central nervous system and the immune system. Evidence has shown that this system plays a significant role in a number of cognitive and physiological processes.

The endocannabinoid system helps to regulate mood, temperature, appetite, sleep and much more! When CBD interacts with the receptors in the endocannabinoid system, it can help to better regulate many of these processes. Many people report getting better quality sleep, seeing a reduction in feelings of anxiety, and even experiencing less pain and inflammation when they incorporate CBD into their care regime.

CBD and Pain Relief

CBD products have become a popular option for many people looking for an alternative for pain management – with fewer and less serious side effects. While more research is needed, current evidence suggests that the anti-inflammatory potential of CBD could be useful for a number of inflammatory skin conditions. For example, CBD may help to soothe irritation and dryness associated with psoriasis and eczema.

How Do I Take CBD?

The versatility of CBD means that it can be taken in a huge variety of ways. Not only does it come in the form of oils – which can be taken sublingually (under the tongue) or even added to your favourite foods and drinks! – it can also be infused into edible products, like in our range of CBD gummies. Are you into vaping? Well, it’s never been easier to incorporate CBD with our range of CBD E-Liquids and Vape Oils (bonus: evidence shows this is the most effective way to take CBD!).

If you are looking for more targeted relief, our CBD balms and creams are a great option, as they allow you to apply a healthy dose of CBD directly to where it’s needed the most. Whatever your needs, we can guarantee there is a CBD product for that. Take a look at all of our CBD product categories above and start discovering the benefits of this amazing wellness ingredient.

Are There Different Types of CBD?

When browsing CBD products, you may have noticed phrases like ‘full-spectrum’ and ‘broad-spectrum’. While this might make things seem even more complicated than they already are, the explanation for these phrases is actually pretty straightforward.

Put simply, full-spectrum and broad-spectrum CBD products contain a number of other naturally-occurring hemp compounds. This can include other cannabinoids, as well as terpenes and flavonoids. Full-spectrum products contain a wider variety of these compounds and tend to represent the original cannabinoid profile of the plant they have been made from. Don’t worry though, most products available in the UK are sourced from hemp plants which, by nature, contain extremely low levels of this psychoactive compound.

In comparison, broad-spectrum will have some ingredients filtered out – usually THC. If your products aren’t labelled as either broad-spectrum or full-spectrum, then the chances are they are made using a CBD isolate extract. This means that most other hemp ingredients will have been filtered out, leaving behind near-pure CBD.

Are your CBD E-Liquids Compatible with my Device?

Our range of CBD E-Liquids and Vape Oils are developed and manufactured to UK industry standards. This means that they are compatible with the majority of vaporizer devices available on the UK market. So, pick a flavour and start enjoying the benefits of CBD right away.

What is the Best CBD Product for Me?

As you have probably realised by now, CBD can be used in a huge number of ways. While this guarantees that there is a perfect product for everyone, it can also make it difficult to decide which product to try first! We recommend considering what you want from your CBD product and what kind of product would fit best into your day-to-day life.

For example, if you already vape – then why not try one of our delicious CBD E-Liquid flavours? If you want a quick, convenient and discrete dose of CBD, our CBD gummies are the perfect way to go.
