The cannabis industry is a bit tricky. Isn’t it?
With several brands making tall claims, only a few are as reliable as they sound.
If you’re looking for premium-quality CBD, brands that sell organic products are the safest bet.
But which one?
Among the few good options in organic CBD brands, one name that clearly stands out for its no-frills, no-fancy, only pure and clean products is Nuleaf Naturals.
The brand has been around in the cannabis industry for quite a while and has earned a positive reputation for itself. In this article, we’ll share with you a detailed review of the brand and its products, telling you why this brand has such a good reputation.
So, let’s get started!
About Nuleaf Naturals as a Brand
Founded back in 2014, Nuleaf Naturals has turned out to be one of the top hemp brands in the US. As a cannabis brand, Nuleaf Naturals focuses on the betterment of its existing products rather than innovating new ones.

Its products are all-natural, lab-tested, and sourced from organically grown hemp plants cultivated on licensed organic farms in America.
Nuleaf Naturals is very specific about the quality of its hemp. It sources its extracts from 100% organic hemp, grown with advanced cultivation techniques to ensure safe and potent products, even while enhancing the natural genetics of the hemp plants.

Third-Party Lab Testing
Independent accredited labs are used by the brand to confirm the safety and quality of its ingredients. ProVerde Laboratories and Botanacor are two of the many certified labs that test Nuleaf Naturals’ products to confirm their safety, potency, and quality.
Reputable brands make it a point to get their products tested by such independent labs to confirm that its CBD, Delta-8 THC, CBN, CBG, and CBC products are free from mold, pesticides, heavy metals, mycotoxins, fungi, and herbicides and confirming that the Delta-9 THC content in them are well within the legal threshold.
The tests also verify the proportions of the main cannabinoids and terpenes in the products, guaranteeing that they contain the optimal amount. Besides, the tests also look for cannabinoids that should not be there, such as the acidic forms of cannabinoids.

Nuleaf Naturals Products Review
Nuleaf Naturals’ product range is a bit limited. They do not offer a whole lot of ingredients, flavors, or potencies. Nor do they have a wide range of product types. They stick to a few, but they adhere to premium-grade quality standards.
That is why you will find their products are more effective than – well, interesting.
They don’t waste their time, energy, scientific know-how on adding fluff or fancy to their products. They make only pure, clean, and highly efficient products that will make a difference in people’s lives.
Until a year or so ago, Nuleaf’s products did not include anything other than oils/tinctures. Gradually, they also entered the softgel market, with its same formulation infused into soft gel capsules. It was very recently that they also forayed into the topical scene.
Besides, the brand’s initial offerings did not include anything other than CBD. The past few months have seen the company come out with products containing other cannabinoids as well, such as CBC, Delta-8 THC, CBG, and CBN.
Currently, the brand’s favorites are:
- CBD Oils
- CBD Soft gels
- CBD Pet Oil
Both the CBD oil formulations are their all-time favorites among Nuleaf Naturals’ customers. Although the CBD softgels are a relatively new entry, it has succeeded in capturing the market pretty quickly, thanks to the fact that the brand has stuck to the same, effective formula that was used in its CBD oils.
The CBD oils by Nuleaf Naturals don’t just contain CBD. They also contain other cannabinoids, such as CBC, CBG, CBN, among other variants that the brand has to offer.

Pros & Cons of Nuleaf Naturals
If you compare Nuleaf Naturals with most other brands in the market, you would find a few pros and cons – more pros than cons, of course.
Here are a few of those…
More focus on existing products: Its limited variety of products has enabled the brand to focus more on improving its formulations and overall quality of products.
Conveniently sized bottles: This makes dosing easier. You get the same CBD concentration with each drop, but you can choose to have more or less, depending on your dosage. Accordingly, you can choose a smaller- or larger-sized bottle.
Organic: Nuleaf’s products are all 100% organic. No preservatives, additives, or cutting agents are used.

No Money-back Guarantee on Used Items: Nuleaf Naturals doesn’t provide a money-back guarantee for products that may be returned because they were ineffective. The brand maintains that cannabinoids like CBD do not have the same impact on everyone.

Buying Guide for Beginners
For beginners, finding the right brand of products and choosing the most appropriate product could be difficult, especially in a market that isn’t well-regulated as it should be. That is why we continually try to ensure you are made well aware of what to expect and how to deal with them with your best interests in mind.
So, all you need to is follow these little steps and you will find your best-suited CBD product in no time at all:
Determine the reason why you need to use CBD. Read up on the effects of CBD on your health and how you should go about your doses.
CBD’s effects vary for most people, mainly depending on factors, such as…
- Overall health condition
- Metabolism rate
- Medical conditions
- Severity of condition
- Internal chemical balance (homeostasis)
To identify the right product and brand for you, you must understand how the effects may vary in your specific case, based on the different aspects we just mentioned.
Select the type of product you would find most convenient with your lifestyle, day’s schedule, and other preferences. That is selecting the administration option.
If you want to consume through edibles, you may want to go for gummies or capsules; if you don’t mind the taste but want faster and more potent effects, you could go for tinctures; you could also choose vape products if you want instantaneous effects and enjoy vaping as a practice. You could also choose topical products if you want them only for pain and inflammation in your joints, muscles, or skin.
Now you would want to select the extract type. There are three types of hemp extracts, i.e., full-spectrum, broad-spectrum, and CBD isolates. Each of these has its own pros and cons too. While full-spectrum extracts contain all the chemical components of natural hemp (with Delta-9 THC well within the legal threshold), broad-spectrum contain no D-9 at all. CBD isolates, as the term suggests, contain nothing more than purified CBD. While the first two allow for a more synergistic and enhanced effect, the isolate’s effects maybe a little less potent, but will most likely not get into trouble at a drug test.
The final step is to shortlist the brands that you find suitable for your needs and choices. Apart from your preferences, the other aspects that you need to look at while shortlisting the brands are brand reputation, reliability, transparency, safety parameters practiced by the brand, etc.
Here, are a few tips that you must consider to gauge a brand’s reliability:
- Price comes later when you’re buying CBD products. Never look for cheap products, as there is a high possibility that you’ll end up buying something that isn’t even CBD. As a consumer of the legal hemp industry, you must know that a lot of hefty resources go into making one single bottle of good quality CBD oil. From farm licensing to cultivation, extraction to purification and manufacturing, CBD companies have to jump way too many hoops to give away their offerings at dirt cheap prices. Make quality your priority.
- Research the brands. Check out their websites, study their practices and their level of transparency, counter the information provided therewith third-party websites.
- Always opt for organic brands. Go for brands that mention ‘organic’, ‘all-natural, ‘non-GMO’ products. Also, read up their ingredients list on the site’s product descriptions and labels, find out where they source their hemp, check out their lab reports – do everything to find out more about the brand. Call them up if you are confused about something. If they warm-heartedly oblige, you’ll know you are in good hands.
- Read as many brand and product reviews as you can. Get a good idea about the brands’ reputation. You can find customer reviews on third-party websites and social media platforms, besides the brands’ own websites.
