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.

CBD and other cannabinoids are
naturally occurring compounds that display potent anti-inflammatory and
pain-relieving properties. They can promote the body’s healthy regulation of
the central nervous, immune, and endocannabinoid systems.
Your body contains cell receptors known as cannabinoid receptors;
Cannabinoids, found in cannabis, are agonists that are able bind to these receptors
a physiological response.Together all of these cells make up
the larger endocannabinoid system (ECS).
If cannabinoid receptors are locks, then
agonists – or the cannabinoids found in CBD – are keys.
CBD interacts with cells in our bodies that we produce naturally called
endocannabinoids. These cells are able to interact due to their similar
The ECS system has been described as
the greatest neurotransmitter system in the body and has a hand in just about
everything your body does including:
The endocannabinoid system plays an important role in the immune
response of our skin. An
improper immune response can result in inflammation and this is why CBD
is works as an anti-inflammatory, cell renewal and wound healer for skin conditions. Both CB1 and CB2 receptors have been
found throughout the skin.

How do you know how much CBD is in
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
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
When does the product expire?
Without refrigeration, the product
will last for 12 months. Refrigeration is completely optional but will extend
the shelf life of the product to 18 months.
What other ingredients are in your
Our CBD oil has only one ingredient,
hemp! Our extracts contain 100% organic cold pressed hemp oil and our
proprietary full spectrum CBD concentrate. There are no other additives,
preservatives, emulsifiers, or flavorings.
Where do you source your
Our CBD oil is extracted from
organic hemp plants cultivated on licensed farms in Colorado, USA – all
nourished with pristine Rocky Mountain water and lots of sunshine. It’s
grown the way nature intended and harvested at peak perfection.
Why is NuLeaf Naturals not USDA
The USDA has made the statement that
they will not certify any hemp products grown in the United States at this
time. We partnered with an industry-leading third-party lab, Steep Hill, to
ensure that our CBD oil is 100% organic. Please contact us for current lab
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 any way. CO2 is safe to use in food products and
commonly found in carbonated beverages, and our bodies even produce CO2 when we
What type of CO2 extraction do you
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 that yield a more potent blend.
Store in a cool dark place; shake well before each use.

Study: Topical CBD Treatment May Reduce Central Nervous System Inflammation
A controlled animal study published in Daru: Journal of Faculty and Pharmacy, Tehran University of Medical Sciences found that topical treatment with 1% purified (i.e. >98%) CBD topical
cream may help to reduce damage caused by a disease that results in
brain inflammation. This holds relevance for humans with autoimmune
diseases that lead to demyelination (damage to the fatty covering around
neurons that helps them to transmit signals faster) like multiple
Topical CBD vs. Multiple Sclerosis Experiment
Using healthy mice and mice with experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis [(EAE)- encephalo= brain, myel= myelin= fatty nerve covering, itis= inflammation] as models for humans with multiple sclerosis,
researchers applied either 1% purified CBD cream, inactive cream, or no
cream to the skin of the healthy mice, and to the skin of diseased mice
once symptoms of EAE began to appear. The mice were observed daily, and
28 days after EAE had been induced, spinal cord and spleen cell samples
Results of the Study
The researchers found that treatment with CBD cream helped to reduce damage caused by EAE, characterized by:
- reversal of back leg paralysis (i.e. loss of muscle function)
- reduction in indicators of spinal cord damage like demyelination and white blood cell count
- reduction in release of lymphocytes from spleen cells
- reduction in inflammatory signals
results of this study provide further support for the potential of
cannabinoids in reducing damage caused by autoimmune/inflammatory
diseases like multiple sclerosis. More uniquely, however, they show that
cannabinoids may produce beneficial biological effects even when only
applied to the skin, as opposed to typical internal administration (e.g.
edibles, vaping, smoking).
