At Green Stem CBD, we truly believe in the potential of CBD as a natural, holistic way to support and maintain wellbeing. This led us to seek out only the purest CBD ingredients, from the CBD distillate used in our CBD Oil to the 98%+ pure CBD isolate used in our vaping liquids.
It is our mission to engage with the CBD community and educate our customers about the natural healing properties of this amazing active ingredient.
Our collection encompasses a wide range of products, with many more currently in development. We offer high-quality CBD vape e-liquids, luxurious CBD infused lip balms, sumptuous CBD bath bombs and great tasting CBD Oils (oral drops). Our experience in flavour creation and liquid formulation is what sets our products apart from other brands.
Our products are proudly created right here in the UK and every batch is tested for quality and potency. At our launch at the UK’s first Hemp and CBD Expo in March 2019, we were honoured to win 5 out of 7 awards entered, including: 1st Place for “Best CBD Oil” 1st Place for “Best Inhalable” (CBD E-Liquid), 1st Place for “Best Cosmetic” together with 1st Place for Best Packaging and Best (Exhibition) Stand. Having made such an impressive debut in the UK CBD industry, we were even more elated to win 1st place for Best CBD Oil all over again at the event in September 2019
What is CBD (Cannabidiol), and what does it do? Firstly, CBD and CBD oil, also known as Hemp Oil, have no intoxicating or psychoactive properties. CBD is one of the hundreds of different compounds found in the hemp variety of the cannabis plant. Hemp is one of the world’s fastest growing biomasses and one of the oldest domesticated crops known to humans. Hemp is a strain of the cannabis plant that contains almost no THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol), which is the psychoactive compound found in marijuana.
Our CBD is extracted from Hemp grown outdoors in the perfect climate of Colorado, USA and all of our plants are grown and cultivated in a pesticide free environment. Colorado soil boasts a high alkaline profile, making it well-suited to hemp cultivation. The state of Colorado receives a lot of sunshine, with about 300 sunny days each year. Hemp plants need more than 12 hours of sunlight each day during the high growth vegetative stage.
We extract cannabidiol from hemp and isolate it down to a single cannabinoid, this is called CBD isolate. We then infuse this CBD isolate into an assortment of different products ranging from tinctures and vaping liquids, to cosmetics and edibles. Some products, such as Cannabidiol Oil (CBD Oil) contain broad-spectrum CBD, which is also free of THC but carries many of the other useful terpenes, phytocannabinoids, fatty acids and other compounds found in hemp. The combination of these compounds in the body provides what is colloquially known as the “entourage effect”.
Our chromatographic purification process has been able to selectively remove the psychoactive component, Delta 9-THC, from the raw hemp oil. Since our purification process is able to selectively remove Delta 9-THC, while leaving intact other synergistic components of the oil, the resulting hemp extract is non-psychoactive while still delivering the entourage effect for biological activity and efficacy.
To ensure our products are completely THC free, we stringently test them to demonstrate a “non-detect” level, and we can provide Certificates of Analysis for all our products so you can be assured of the high-quality formulation of the entire Green Stem range.
CBD oil is appearing everywhere from tea and coffee shops, to gyms and fitness stores, to cafes and everywhere in between. Why is this plant-derived supplement garnering so popularity? For starters, CBD is a 100% natural compound that is extracted from the hemp plant and is widely understood to support the body’s natural balance and wellbeing. CBD is sought out by people looking for the general holistic benefits that CBD can offer and there are multiple different ways to consume CBD, such as topical, sublingual, inhaled, and eaten. This means that no matter your reasons for taking CBD, there’s a form to suit your needs.
Fitness and exercise are an integral part of a balanced and healthy lifestyle, and many are finding that CBD can be a great companion to their exercise and wellbeing regimen. Soothe hands or lips chapped from gruelling workouts or winter runs with Green Stem CBD-infused hand cream and lip balm, each loaded with nourishing ingredients like natural essential oils. Relax after hard exercise, or simply a tough day, with a soothing CBD Bath Bomb. A great many professional athletes are now vocal advocates for CBD, including rugby star James Haskell, Women’s Soccer sensation Megan Rapinoe and world heavyweight champion Mike Tyson
Getting started with CBD is a simple and easy process. If you are totally new to CBD, we do recommend doing a little research into what CBD is, how and why it works, as well as the different forms of CBD. A good place to start learning about CBD is our CBD guides blog.
One of the first decisions you’ll need to make is which form of ingesting CBD you feel works best for you; whether that’s vaping, oral oil drops, edibles or cosmetics. Those looking for the general holistic benefits of CBD might prefer the ease and consistency of vaping; whereas for those with skincare in mind, topical forms such as our Green Stem Hand Cream could be a better choice.
Once you’ve decided on a form of CBD that suits your needs and lifestyle, the strength of CBD is your next decision. When selecting the correct dose for your specific needs, we recommend starting with a lower mg dose and increasing gradually until you notice the positive effects. What suits one person may be insufficient for another, so for more information on CBD doses and potency, please visit our FAQ page or contact our customer support team.
We have numerous written blogs explaining every aspect of CBD, but if you have any specific questions, our customer support team are happy to help with any queries you may have.
One of the most popular and effective ways of consuming CBD is by vaping. The main advantage of vaping CBD over other methods of consumption is that it’s the fastest way to ingest CBD due to its high bio-availability level. Bio-availability is the speed at which your body uptakes the CBD from your chosen form of CBD, whether it’s vaping, oil tinctures, edibles, or other forms. Vaping CBD will produce none of the psychoactive effects of marijuana, nor is it addictive or habit forming. Vaping CBD also won’t leave you with the bad odour of smoke clinging to your skin and clothes.
Our award-winning Green Stem CBD Vape liquid comes in six different flavours: Apple & Raspberry, Lemon & Mango, Grape & Blackberry, Cherries & Berries, Wild Strawberry, and Peppermint. Depending on your preference, we offer three different strengths of CBD: 100mg, 250mg, and 500mg. If you’re new to using CBD, we recommend starting out on a lower dose, and working up the strengths to find the optimal level of CBD for you. Our vaping liquids are made with a 60% VG / 40% PG ratio which is a perfect base to effectively infuse CBD. Our new VPOD refillable pod system is designed with simplicity and performance in mind, and works perfectly for vaping CBD e-liquids.
Perhaps the most well-known forms of CBD is in the form of an oil tincture. Using one of our CBD oil tinctures is incredibly simple, simply withdraw the pipette from the bottle, and drop between a half to one full pipette of CBD oil directly under your tongue. CBD oil is best administered underneath your tongue as it can be directly absorbed into the bloodstream via the sublingual glands. Sublingual administration means that the CBD oil stays out of the digestive system to result in a direct and effective method of ingestion, with a high level of bio-availability. It was important to us to create a luxurious product that is a pleasure to use; we have a range of three different flavoured CBD Oils: Seville Orange, Black Cherry, and Peppermint. All three flavours come in five different strengths.
One of the more recent developments in CBD is the usage of CBD within topical products such as our Lip Balms, Bath Bombs, or Hand Creams. TOur Green Stem CBD Hand Cream combines the luxurious and nourishing effects of essential oils with CBD to provide you with a restorative and moisturising hand cream. Our decadent bath bombs combine CBD with the recuperative, relaxing properties of natural ingredients like sandalwood, lavender and jasmine
A convenient and enjoyable way to consume CBD is via either our CBD Gummies, or our CBD Citrus Tonic Water. We aim to integrate a sense of pleasure and luxury into your CBD routine, so our edibles and drinks are beautifully crafted with high-quality, premium ingredients. Our CBD gummies are the perfect go-anywhere, take-anytime form of CBD. And they taste great too! Our refreshing CBD tonics are crisp and sophisticated and only use natural flavourings. They can be enjoyed on their own or as delicious mixers with your favourite spirits.
The science and biological chemistry behind CBD might seem daunting at first, but it’s important to understand how and why you could benefit from CBD. It starts with the body’s endocannabinoid system. This is a communication system between our brain and the rest of our body that supports and maintains different bodily functions. Our endocannabinoid system responds to the presence of cannabinoid compounds that occur naturally within the body or in plant form, such as CBD or THC. A great deal of exciting research is currently in progress studying the potential benefits of the relationship between the endocannabinoid system and CBD.
For more information on the endocannabinoid system, please read our blog here.
Because CBD is often mistakenly associated with cannabis, the legal status of CBD is sometimes misunderstood. CBD shares very few properties with marijuana; most notably, CBD has none of the psychoactive effects that come with marijuana use. In the UK, CBD and hemp products are 100% legal to grow and market, so our Green Stem collection is strictly within the law and you’ll have nothing to worry about when using our products. For more information on the legalities of CBD.
CBD is not a licensed pharmaceutical medication, and therefore scientific claims cannot be made about the benefits of using CBD. With more and more research being done into the science behind CBD each day, CBD is receiving a great deal of attention as a supplement that could really support our body’s natural balance and overall wellness.
When it comes to choosing a CBD brand, it is important to make sure you have all the facts about the product before you buy CBD Oil. Choosing a reputable retailer or manufacturer that can provide the scientific evidence and certificates for their range is vital to ensuring you get a high-quality CBD product. We are always happy to provide our Certificates of Analysis for our products, or if you’d rather come to us directly with any questions, you can contact us here.
