One of the most well-known names among the CBD brands in the UK, Bud & Tender is a small but reputed company that aims to make a change with its products. Acclaimed by customers as well as reputed newspapers and magazines, it has swiftly grown to become one of the most trustworthy CBD brands.
Having heard a lot about the high-quality products of the brand, we decided to check them out for ourselves.
In this Bud & Tender review, we will be taking a look at the brand and what it has to offer. We will also check out their customer reviews to understand whether the brand is really capable of delivering what they claim to. So, let’s get started without further ado!
About Bud & Tender
Before moving on to our Bud & Tender review, let’s take a moment to get to know the brand.
Bud & Tender is a UK-based brand that specializes in researching and producing CBD products. The founders, Mark Turner and Charles Clowes, started the company with the goal of developing high-quality CBD supplements that would have a positive impact on people’s health.
From the onset, the brand has focussed on creating fully legal CBD supplements with better taste and efficacy. The starting point of this is sourcing the best quality hemp. The raw material is carefully extracted and filtered through both CO2 and ethanol-based processes to maximize the entourage effect.
However, Bud & Tender is not merely a CBD brand, they are actively involved in supporting the cannabis industry in the UK in a wider sense. Through their association with the University of Hertfordshire, the brand intends to improve the education, research, and development of hemp-based cannabinoid products.
They are members of the Cannabis Industry Council, which is working towards popularising and making medical cannabis and CBD more accessible in the UK. The brand is also a member of the British Hemp Alliance that works in close association with farmers to help in the growth of the hemp industry in the UK.
Also, all the Bud & Tender CBD products go through independent lab tests to ensure that they are up to the mark in terms of quality. All the lab reports and certificates can be easily accessed on their official website.
While the brand is rather impressive, they don’t have a wide range of products for customers to choose from. In fact, they only manufacture premium CBD oils. However, you do get the option of multiple strength variants.
The most impressive thing about the Bud & Tender range of CBD oils is that it is the sole CBD oil at present that is recommended by the United Kingdom Cannabis Social Clubs (UKCSC) to its patients and members alike.
The CBD oil by the brand is made in the labs at the University of Hertfordshire. Here, through a patented extraction and filtration technology, the team ensures that the final product is free from unwanted lipids, waxes, or chlorophyll content, giving the oil a fresh, fruity, and floral flavour.
The brand offers its CBD Cannabis oils in four strength variants – 5%, 10%, 20%, and 40%.
The 5% oil is most suitable for beginners and offers around 12.5 mg of CBD per serving (.25 ml). The 10% and 20% variants are perfect for those looking for a higher dose, and it comes with around 25 mg and 50 mg of CBD per serving respectively.
People who need a stronger dose may opt for the 40% variant, which offers around 100 mg of CBD per serving.
The brand offers two size options – you can choose to get the oil of your preferred strength in either a 10 ml or a 30 ml bottle.
Also, if you are a beginner wishing to try out a sample before investing in a full bottle, you’re in luck! The brand offers 1 ml samples of the 10%, 20%, and 40% variants which you can purchase for trial before getting a full-size bottle.
These are broad-spectrum oils that consist of CBD extracts blended in a base of organic MCT oil. The oil is free from THC, making it fully legal for use in the UK. Also, shipping is free for all orders shipped within the UK.
Social Media Sentiment
While we were quite impressed with how the brand claims to manufacture their products, we thought of checking out the Bud & Tender reviews by customers who have used them. We took a look at Trustpilot, which is our most preferred platform for understanding customers’ sentiments regarding any particular brand, and the results did not disappoint us.
Bud & Tender has a rating of 4.7 out of 5 on the Trustpilot platform, which is deemed excellent! They have a total of 383 customer reviews, of which more than 88% are positive.
Several reviews speak of their timely service and excellent products, which makes us believe that the brand is close to achieving what they claim.
The negative reviews are few and are mainly related to issues in the efficacy of the product, which we think is rather common as not every CBD product works for everyone. What impressed us was that the founders have taken the effort to reach out to almost every reviewer (both positive and negative) with the aim of providing any further support if needed. This, we feel, is an excellent business practice.
Also, there are several positive Bud & Tender CBD oil reviews on their official website, that too from a plethora of well-known and reputed names like Reader’s Digest, Mirror, and Evening Standard, to name a few.
We hope this Bud & Tender review was informative enough for all who were unsure of trying out the CBD oils by the brand. While we would have liked it more if they had a wider range of products to offer, the quality of their supplement does make up for it to some extent.
In our opinion, this is a brand that you can try without any second thoughts, not only because of the numerous positive reviews about the effectiveness of their products but also for the super-responsive customer service that the brand offers.
