What you need to know about this CBD Oil?
NuLeaf Naturals’ CBD oil is made using a combination of supercritical and subcritical CO2 extraction methods. Why is this important? First, CO2 extraction methods mean that chemicals and harsh solvents are not used in the extraction process — creating a cleaner, safer, end product. NuLeaf performs a fractional extraction first, which means that the oil is extracted at a lower temperature and pressure to remove the lighter, temperature sensitive volatile oils. Next, that material is extracted at a higher temperature and pressure to remove the remaining oils. NuLeaf says that this method creates a more potent blend by extracting and preserving a complete range of cannabinoids, terpenes, and phytochemicals. CO2 extraction methods are the leading industry standard, a good sign to look for when evaluating CBD oils.
Coloration and Viscosity
NuLeaf Naturals’ oil is gold and runs thin and clean. This is what you would expect from a product that has been manufactured using CO2 extraction methods. Clear gold can indicate purity. Since there are no additional ingredients besides hemp oil, it makes sense that the oil is this way.
What does color mean about a CBD Oil?
CBD oil generally comes in shades of gold, ranging from dark brown to tinted green. The color variation depends on the extraction method used and how much of the phytochemicals remain in the oil. Phytochemicals and leftover plant material are responsible for the shades of green. Often times, the browner the oil is, the less processing has been done. Clear, true gold colored oil is indicative of a clean product. Companies will often post information on their website about how the product is made. This is one way to learn more about the processing and purity of the products you’re considering. You can learn more about how CBD Oil color and clarity by reading
Flavor and Scent
How does it smell?
Since NuLeaf Naturals’ is made with 100% organic hemp oil, it smells exactly like that. This leafy, unique, and pungent smell characteristic of CBD oil indicates the absence of additives and flavoring.
How does it taste?
NuLeaf Naturals’ 725 mg CBD tastes woody and tart. This is the taste of true CBD oil — plant-like and strong. A 100% organic, pure product without additives will be a different experience for your taste buds if you’ve never tried CBD oil before. It’s not the most pleasant of tastes, but the product that you’re putting into your body is of a higher quality. Often times, products with flavoring and additives attempt to mask the taste of hemp oil but fail to do so in a meaningful way because the natural taste is so strong.
There is only one thing we can think of that would make NuLeaf Naturals even more appealing to purchase — if they posted their lab testing results on their website. By using organic hemp, CO2 extraction methods, and leaving additives out of the product, NuLeaf Naturals is a market leader. They are also reasonably priced and competitive with similar products on the market.
