What is CBD?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a naturally occurring constituent of industrial hemp (cannabis sativa) plants. It is the most abundant non-psychoactive cannabinoid found in cannabis, and is being scientifically investigated for numerous reasons. Most people have heard of a cannabinoid called THC, which is the ingredient in cannabis that gets users high. Unlike THC, CBD(cannabidiol) is a non psychoactive cannabinoid and does not cause a high.
Does NuLeaf Naturals ship to all 50 states?
Yes. We ship our proprietary organic hemp oil extracts to all 50 States. The United States Farm Bill of 2014 classified industrial hemp as containing less than 0.3% THC. Because NuLeaf Naturals products contain less than 0.3% THC, we are allowed by U.S. Federal law to conveniently ship to your doorstep.
Does NuLeaf Naturals ship international?
Yes! We ship to over 40 countries including the European Union, Switzerland, China, Japan, Australia, Mexico, Canada, and more.
What’s the difference between CBD from hemp and CBD from marijuana?
Both hemp and marijuana are from the same genus and species (Cannabis Sativa). The characteristic of having low THC is the single difference that most rely on to distinguish industrial hemp from marijuana. CBD taken from hemp and marijuana is the exact same compound.
How do I take CBD?
The CBD oil we offer has a couple different applications. You can ingest our oil orally and it is also active topically. We will include further dosing instructions with the product.
Will CBD help my condition?
Due to federal regulations, we cannot make claims about whether or not natural CBD hemp oil can help with specific ailments. We do however, urge everyone to research the widely available information online. You can easily find many sources about CBD hemp oil and possible benefits. For more information, please see our CBD research page.
How do you know how much CBD is in your products?
Our CBD oil is lab-tested as soon as it is extracted and then again by a third party lab (Steep Hill) in Berkeley, California to ensure an accurate amount of CBD. In addition we test for over 200 pesticides, herbicides, mold, fungi, heavy metals, and mycotoxins. We use cutting-edge testing and world-class equipment to ensure that our products are safe and healthy.
Is your CBD a whole plant extract, synthetic, or an isolate?
We would never sacrifice quality by providing a synthetic CBD or CBD isolate blend. We use a whole plant extract that is rich in cannabinoids, terpenes, and other beneficial oils. The Hadassah Medical School at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem sought to compare the effectiveness of a completely purified CBD extract versus a full-spectrum extract of cannabis flowers containing large quantities of CBD. The conclusion of the study was that the whole plant extract, which contained a large percentage of CBD but also contained traces of the other cannabinoids, proved far more effective than CBD-only solutions in alleviating inflammation and pain sensation.
What other cannabinoids are in your CBD oil?
Our full spectrum CBD oil contains high concentrations of CBD and also other beneficial cannabinoids such as CBC, CBG, CBDA, and CBDV. These beneficial cannabinoids are not psychoactive and are being studied scientifically for a wide variety of health benefits. Cannabinoids work synergistically together with what is known as the entourage effect.
When does the product expire?
Without refrigeration the product will last for 8 months. Refrigeration is completely optional but will extend the shelf life of the product to last 1 year.
What other ingredients are in your CBD oil?
Our CBD oil has only one ingredient, hemp! Our extracts contain 100% organic hemp oil and our proprietary full spectrum CBD concentrate. There are no other additives, preservatives, emulsifiers, or flavorings.
How do you extract the CBD and other cannabinoids from the raw plant material?
We use green extraction methods that utilize CO2 which leaves behind no toxins, heavy metals, or chemicals to degrade the product in anyway. CO2 is safe to use in food products and commonly found in carbonated beverages, our bodies produce CO2 when we breathe!
What type of CO2 extraction do you use?
We use a combination of both Subcritical and Supercritical extractions. This allows us to perform a “fractional extraction” by first extracting at lower temperatures and pressures to remove the lighter, temperature sensitive volatile oils, and then subsequently extracting the same material at a higher pressure and temperature to remove the remaining oils. This approach is the best because it allows us to extract a complete range of cannabinoids, terpenes, essential oils, and other beneficial phytochemicals which leads to a more potent blend.
Where do you source your hemp from?
Our CBD oil is extracted from organic hemp plants cultivated with pristine Rocky Mountain water and lots of sunshine. Grown the way nature intended and harvested at peak perfection.
