I highly recommend it.“ Introduction I’ve been a fan of the brand Bud & Tender since I first tried their oil a couple of years ago. Since then, when they were a pretty new company, they have come on leaps and bounds. As well as honing in their ever-stylish branding, they’ve focused a lot on developing the actual CBD oil they sell. And the result is one of the best-tasting, purest CBD oils on the market. I recently got hold of their 10% oil and was compelled to write a review as I was so impressed. Packaging, branding and labelling Bud & Tender’s CBD oils come well packaged, with the bottle containing the oil snugly fitted inside a cardboard tube. Their branding is clear and attractive, with a cannabis leaf proudly displayed. The labelling is also very clear and concise – it even breaks down the number of servings (40) and how much CBD is in each serving (25mg). Instructions are well presented, as are directions to find lab reports (on their website). Ingredients & production When it comes to CBD products, I usually shy away from those with lots of ingredients. And that’s why I love this CBD oil from Bud & Tender, as it has just two – MCT oil (from coconut oil) and a broad spectrum cannabis extract. I like MCT oil as it absorbs very efficiently, while the cannabis extract they use is one of the purest highest quality I’ve come across. Extracted from high grade CBD-rich cannabis flowers, the extract is then refined and filtered while making sure to preserve the plants cannabinoids, terpenoids and flavonoids. Waste materials, including lipids, waxes and chlorophyll, are all removed and no flavourings or additives are added, making Bud & Tender CBD oils 100% natural. All oils are also tested by an independent accredited laboratory for cannabinoids, terpenoids, flavonoids, heavy metals, pesticides, microbials, residual solvents and mycotoxins. Along with high concentrations of CBD, the finished extract also contains trace amounts of CBG, CBC, CBDV and CBT. Taste The taste of this oil is where it really stands out above most others. Thanks to a careful filtration process that preserves the terpenes, the oil smells and tastes just like fresh cannabis. Whereas most CBD oils have an earthy, hempy smell and taste, this one is intensely floral and fresh. Never have I tried a CBD oil that smelled so much like real high-grade cannabis. Effects Thanks to its well-refined nature, this oil is extremely effective. Additionally, MCT oil is one of the best in terms of absorption rates. With 25mg CBD per each serving, one or two servings a day should do most people. And with the terpenes, flavonoids and minor cannabinoids all present, there’s added therapeutic effects. Overall Overall, this product from Bud & Tender is easily one of the best in the UK. When it comes to taste alone, I’d say this is number 1. Although it’s on the high end in terms of price (£80), it’s clearly a very well made, high quality product. I highly recommend it. Buy here.
