The hemp plant boasts an extensive list of diverse applications that are currently being utilized worldwide: automobiles, bioplastics, construction materials, biofuels, paper, nutritional products, body care products, fiber, insulation, animal food and bedding, etc.
Hemp, as defined in the 2014 Federal Farm Bill, is “the plant Cannabis sativa L. and any part of such plant, whether growing or not, with a delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) concentration of not more than 0.3 percent on a dry weight basis.” This low level of THC ensures the hemp plant remains psychoactive.
CBD, or cannabidiol, is one of 100+ cannabinoids, or chemical compounds, found in cannabis. The hemp plants we cultivate, for the Nectar CBD product line, are CBD-rich, meaning they are highly genetically expressive in that one cannabinoid.
Hemp-derived CBD oils have gained much attention in recent years amongst the public. Independent research is being continually conducted and to date, has demonstrated that CBD therapy can show improvements for individuals with, including, but not limited to, alcoholism, anxiety, arthritis, cancer, chronic pain, depression, diabetes, epilepsy, inflammation, multiple sclerosis, neurological disorders, PTSD, psychosis and schizophrenia.
Distillate is the purest form of hemp extract available due to further molecular refinements processes. Our Nectar CBD distillate is odorless, flavorless, activated (ready for ingestion), potent and ultra-refined.

While we recommend a discussion with your physician, it’s typical to begin with 5-10mg of CBD and to incrementally adjust upwards, if necessary.
During the cultivation, harvest and extraction phases, the CBD content of the hemp material is commonly discussed in % value. Post-formulation, however, in product-form, CBD-rich hemp products are commonly compared in milligrams, mg, to describe CBD concentration.
