CBD Assist recently got in contact with the team at NuLeaf Naturals.
NuLeaf Naturals is Colorado based CBD brand that has a large customer base in Australia. They are known for their organic products, non-GMO ingredients with no preservatives.
Below is our Q & A interview with their team.
Can you give us a brief history about NuLeaf Naturals?
Founded in 2014 by a group of health-conscious plant medicine aficionados. Our vision is to pave the way for a line of cannabinoid wellness products that promote a healthy body and mind. Our ultimate goal is to help people and their loved ones live happier, healthier lives.
What differentiates NuLeaf Naturals from other CBD products out there?
NuLeaf Naturals wellness products are derived from specially bred therapeutic hemp (Cannabis sativa L) plants on licensed farms in Colorado. 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. We use a combination of both Subcritical and Supercritical extractions.
This allows us to perform a “fractional extraction” by first extracting at lower pressures to remove the lighter, temperature-sensitive volatile oils, and then subsequently extracting the same material at a higher pressure 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. We do not put any additives or preservatives or flavorings in our product.
Our product is an organic, full spectrum, additive-free CBD oil, homogenized with a 100% organic hemp seed oil.
We believe that full spectrum CBD oils (that contain other terpenes and cannabinoids such as CBC, CBD, CBDA, CBDV, CBG, CBN, and trace amounts of THC and Δ8-THC) are more effective because these cannabinoids act in synergy with each other, producing the fullest effect - even when existing in trace amounts. The trace amount of THC is not enough to be psychoactive.
As one of America’s top pioneering hemp companies, we are committed to bringing the highest-grade CBD products to the market that are third-party lab tested.
What are some recent achievements by NuLeaf Naturals?
In 2019, NuLeaf Naturals was recently honored by Inc. Magazine as #11 on the Inc. 5000 annual list of the fastest-growing private companies in America. Our production facility is FDA registered, cGMP certified and ISO 7 certified. We are also in the process of becoming B Corp certified which is a huge step in the direction of sustainability.
What has been the biggest challenge of NuLeaf Naturals so far? How did you overcome it?
Our biggest challenge has been navigating our incredible growth, while continuing to expand our team and operations that maintain our goal to produce only the highest-grade CBD products. We are able to scale to meet the growing demand from our direct customers and retail partners. A shared sense of teamwork and our commitment to quality are two of the key values that guide us through any challenge.
Which product(s) is your most popular? Why is this so?
We offer our full spectrum CBD oil in five different sizes and two product lines intended for human and pet use. Our 15mL and 30mL size bottles tend to be the most popular.
From the enquiries that you receive, what are the most common health conditions that people face?
While we are unable to make specific medical claims in regards to health conditions, we have heard from many of our customers who are experiencing tremendous relief or improvements to their overall health and wellness. Cannabinoid wellness is highly personal and the results vary from person to person (or even pet to pet!)
What future challenges do you anticipate for NuLeaf Naturals?
Our goal is to continue expanding our reach to bring NuLeaf Naturals Premium Cannabinoid Wellness to more people all across the globe. With that will come a wide variety of regulated markets. We faced these challenges eagerly and are experienced in navigating these landscapes as they continue to evolve.
Where do you see the future of the Australian medical cannabis industry heading? And the Australian cannabis industry in general?
While we do not speculate on future regulations we are eternally hopeful that more countries, including Australia, will continue to change current regulations and their scope on cannabis and hemp.
If you could choose one, what is the most interesting discovery or fact of medical cannabis that you would like to share?
The Endocannabinoid System, or ECS, is your body’s regulatory system. It helps maintain homeostasis between the central nervous system, the immune system, and many other systems that make up a person’s body. Our own body produces endocannabinoids, and these interact with the phytocannabinoids found in hemp and CBD products to maintain that balance.
Accessing Medical Cannabis
