CBD oil is all the rage right now, but it’s also largely unregulated in the US, so you need to know what to look for before you buy. My top priority as a consumer is to research the company and understand their mission to ensure it’s inline with mine. Once, I’ve checked that box, I can start digging into the ingredients, sourcing methods, and if I have questions, speak to their product specialists to vet their credibility.
When it comes to CBD oil, I only use NuLeaf Naturals for myself. It’s offered in a variety of different strengths and can be used internally and topically.
Nuleaf’s CBD oil is lab-tested as soon as it is extracted and then again by a third party lab. They also test for pesticides, herbicides, mold, fungi, heavy metals, and mycotoxins, it does not contain any additives or preservatives, and the oil it is derived from organically-grown hemp plants with no herbicides, pesticides, or chemical fertilizers. The oil is extracted using C02, a method that preserves the full spectrum of cannabinoids and does not involve any heat or solvents.
For my dogs, I use Nuleaf and/or Pet Releaf. They also do third-party testing on the purity of their product and they grow their hemp on a Certified USDA Organic hemp farm in the United States, which is the only pet company they work with.
