Nuleaf Naturals Review
In this CBD oil review we will be taking a look at Nuleaf Naturals. I first came across Nuleaf about 7 months ago, and upon first glance at the website and products they have I didn’t really think much of them. After all, they only have a few products up for sale.
Upon digging a little further into the company and reading some reviews on them I decided to give them a try. They were one of the slightly pricier oils that I had purchased, but the good reviews I had read got my hopes up, and I am more than willing to spend a little extra in order to get a quality product that actually works.
CBD oil can get pretty expensive, especially if you are just getting started with it and trying out different products to see what works, what doesn’t, deciding between full spectrum, broad spectrum or isolate, etc.
To date, Nuleaf Naturals has some of the most potent CBD oil that I have tried, but unfortunately doesn’t ship to my area anymore(Canada). If they ever start shipping here again, I will be all over it.
About Nuleaf Naturals
Nuleaf Naturals was founded in 2014, and strives to provide customers with only the highest quality products and customer service.
Their range of oils are full spectrum, Co2 extracted, with hemp seed oil as the carrier. All of their hemp is grown on licensed farms in Colorado, and they oversee the entire process from the growing stage to the final production of their CBD oil.
Nuleaf Naturals currently ships to over 40 countries, and offers fast, free shipping within the United States.
All of their lab testing is published publicly on their site, and is tested through Steep Hill California. Their customer service is some of the best that I have encountered, all of the questions I had for them were answered immediately, and they get 5 stars for communication and thoroughness with their replies. Click on any of their products and the lab tests are available in the description underneath.
Along with the different strengths of CBD oils they have for humans, Nuleaf Naturals also offers a CBD oil for your pets.
Nuleaf Naturals Products
The product line may be small for this company, but they aren’t messing around when it comes to the quality of their CBD oil.
Nuleaf Naturals offers several strengths, ranging from 240mg to 4850mg. No matter if you are looking to start out low, or want something with a very high mg, they have it.
One really awesome thing that this company has going for it is the way the size their bottles. No matter which strength you choose, the bottles are sized so that there is 2.4mg in every drop, and approximately 50mg per ml. It really takes the guesswork out of dosing!
All of their CBD oils contain USDA certified organic hemp oil and Full spectrum hemp extract, and contain a wide range of cannabinoids besides CBD and THC, including CBD, CBDA, CBDV, CBG, and CBN. If you are unfamiliar about what is in CBD, specifically the products that are made with hemp seed oil, check out this article that details the benefits.
This company uses zero pesticides in the growing and manufacturing of all of their products, and test for these as well. It’s important when you a choosing a company that you go for one that is completely organic, as the hemp plant is a bio-accumulator. This means that it has the ability to suck up any toxins that may be present in the air, water, and soil that is used, and could end up in the final product.
Nuleaf Naturals also runs an assistance program for anyone who qualifies. This offers major discounts(30% off) to people in the following categories, and is something that every company should really get on board with:
- Low income households
- Long-term disability
- Veterans and first responders
My Experience With Nuleaf Naturals
The oil that I decided to purchase from Nuleaf Naturals was the 1450mg. If you are confused about the different strengths and sizing of CBD oil, don’t worry, you’re not alone!
When you purchase a bottle of CBD oil, the mg amount listed on the bottle is the amount of total CBD that is in that bottle. Your individual dose will vary, I take around 30mg per day.
At this dose(1450/30), the bottle that I ordered would last me approximately 48 days. It can be beneficial to order higher mg amounts, as it will often drop the price per mg. If I had ordered the 725mg, the bottle would have lasted me around 24 days.
If you are new to CBD oil, it is best to start out at a low dose and work up gradually from there. Why is this? Well, not everyone is using CBD for the same thing.
One person may do well on 20mg a day, while the next might need 50mg in order to get the same results. If you start out at a high dose, then you may never know if a lower dose would have worked just as well. Here’s a general dosage guide if you want to learn more on dosing.
Upon first starting it, the first thing that was very apparent was the taste. Being that it is made with 100% organic hemp oil, you get the very recognizable marijuana taste and scent from it.
This may be off-putting to some, but I’ve actually grown to like the taste. The only option you have for their oil is all natural, as they never add any flavoring or preservatives. If the taste is too much for you, you have the option of adding in your own mint or other flavored extracts to help mask the taste.
One other thing I will say about the taste is that I find that with all of the unflavored oils I’ve tried, including Nuleaf, is that the aftertaste dissipates very quickly. With the flavored oils it tends to stick around a lot longer, and I’ve gotten heartburn from a few of the different flavors I’ve tried.
The oil goes to work quickly, like all sublingual oils do(10-20 minutes is the norm here), and was by far one of the best that I’ve tried.
Because it is all natural and includes no flavoring, it is one of the best to try if you have any sort of skin condition that you’re thinking of using CBD topically on. For me it was perfect to use on my eczema, and is very moisturizing. While there are many CBD skin care products on the market, I like to just take some of the CBD oil and mix it into my lotion when I put it on. It saves money when using it this way, as I can use it orally as well.
I found the oil from Nuleaf to be very effective for the back and pelvic pain that I deal with regularly, and was also great for anxiety. I immediately felt more calm after taking it, and would definitely recommend for anyone who deals with anxiety. All of Nuleaf’s products have 0.3% THC or less in them, so you never need to worry about it getting you “high”. CBD is non-psychoactive, and won’t cause this feeling at all.
One big change that I’ve noticed over the past year of taking CBD has been the change in the quality of sleep I get. I no longer toss and turn and take forever to drop off, and I find that I wake up way less frequently in the night. Nuleaf was one of the best that I tested out in this area.

I was only able to get one bottle of CBD oil from Nuleaf before they discontinued shipping here, which is really unfortunate as it is definitely in my top 3 CBD oils that I’ve tested out. Hopefully in the future we are able to access this again in Canada, it has been a bit of a challenge to find quality oils here and not have the options that the US has.
Nuleaf Naturals are members of several organizations in the industry, including the Hemp Industries Association and the National Hemp Association.
The one major downside to Nuleaf is the fact that they only have Full Spectrum CBD oils available for purchase, so if you are looking for different CBD products, or are tested and need to go with a THC free product, then this is not going to be an option for you.
For someone who is looking for a Full Spectrum, effective CBD oil, this is one of the best. Just be prepared to open your wallet a little bit wider!
