What is CBD (Cannabidiol), and what does it do? Firstly, CBD and CBD 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 a variety of the cannabis plant that contains almost no THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol), which is the psychoactive compound found in marijuana. 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.
CBD has been unfortunately lumped in with the illegal status of marijuana; however, it shares none of the psychoactive properties that are a result of the THC found within marijuana. The percentage of THC within hemp (from which we extract our CBD) is approximately 0.0003% or less. It is THC that gives cannabis its psychoactive properties, and therefore with CBD containing no THC, you can be assured that you will experience zero psychoactive or intoxicating effects. 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 fitness stores, to eateries 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; a natural product that helps with a huge variety of different ailments. Consumers have reported that the potential benefits of CBD oil can be used to treat ailments such as chronic pain, anxiety, depression, inflammation, and appetite disorders. CBD isn’t just strictly for those looking to treat a specific ailment however, as it is also sought out by people looking for the general holistic benefits that CBD can offer. Improved sleep, help with fitness regimens, skincare, and digestive health, are just some of the potential benefits people are using CBD for. There are also 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 hugely beneficial addition to their fitness and wellbeing regimen. Cannabinoids like CBD are known to be potent anti-inflammatory agents, and this has led athletes of all levels to benefit from using CBD. Anti-inflammatories are used by athletes to relieve and prevent injuries, as well as decrease recovery time and relieve pain. It’s widely reported that up to 70% of distance runners and other endurance athletes take anti-inflammatory pills before every workout or competition, so an all-natural option such as CBD is a highly attractive choice. From football, to martial arts, to golf, athletes of every type of sport are appreciating the benefits that come with using CBD. The support and testimonies given by professional, and influential athletes have helped to bring CBD to the mainstream, and showed how it can be an effective and valuable addition to anyone’s life.
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. CBD has been attributed to helping people treat many different ailments including depression, anxiety, chronic pain, and sleep disorders.
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 regularity and consistency of vaping; whereas for those with conditions such as arthritis in their hands, 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. 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 otherwise. 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. These topical products work by utilising the body’s endocannabinoid system and absorbing the CBD through your skin. Our 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. The ingredients in our CBD hand cream are known to potentially help with conditions such as arthritis due to their anti-inflammatory properties.
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 therapeutic sense of pleasure and luxury into your CBD routine, so our edibles and drinks are beautifully crafted with high-quality, premium ingredients.
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 impacts multiple different bodily functions including stress, pain, appetite, and sleep. Our endocannabinoid system responds to the presence of cannabinoid compounds, such as CBD or THC. Providing your body with CBD can influence your endocannabinoid system to potentially provide you with a multitude of holistic benefits.
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. Despite this however, plenty of expert biological research and numerous scientific studies back up the abundant reasons consumers are choosing CBD to positively impact their life. With more and more research being done into the science behind CBD each day it has become a credible and valid supplement that could provide real benefits to a person’s life.
When it comes to choosing a CBD brand, it is important to make sure you have all the facts about the product. 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.
