What We Do
There is a rapidly growing body of research demonstrating the vast therapeutic properties of CBD, but it has historically been unavailable to many people who need it the most. There are countless stories where a family has had to move across the country to a medical cannabis state because their child has epilepsy that's unresponsive to pharmaceuticals but is treatable with CBD.
Families should not have to uproot themselves just so their child can get through the day without having a seizure.
Nectar Leaf is committed to bringing affordable, high quality cannabidiol (CBD) products to the market, especially in states where medical cannabis is unavailable.
We are committed to advancing the understanding of the therapeutic properties of cannabidiol while enhancing access to affordable, high quality CBD.
CBD is legal throughout the United States in all 50 states as long as it is sourced from hemp grown outside the US and contains no THC. We ensure this by only using the hemp fiber, stems, and seeds rather than the flowers.
Data compiled by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has linked as many as 980 deaths in a year to drugs containing acetaminophen. That averages nearly 82 deaths a month in the United States alone.
