Who Is NuLeaf Naturals?
NuLeaf Naturals is a CBD Oil manufacturer, with headquarters based in Denver, Colorado. The company was founded by Jaden Barnes, Bo Shirley, and Jessica Parsley who pride themselves that their whole operation takes place in the State of Colorado. That includes the planting and growing of the Hemp, the cultivation and extraction of the cannabinoid and the bottling and packaging of the CBD oil.
They are a 100% US operation, sourcing all of the raw hemp material from licensed organic 'outdoor farms' in Colorado. They believe that indoor growing doesn’t produce as pure or “potent” of a plant. Therefore, they claim that they are one of the only ones who 'exclusively' harvest from outdoor growing operations.
They stubbornly refuse to trade quality for higher profits by sourcing cheaper raw materials from China or India.
NuLeaf Naturals produces 100% organic CBD, and the CO2 extraction process delivers a hemp oil product with no additives, chemicals, harsh metals or toxins. The taste of their product is a distinguished, natural and earthy HEMP flavor.
What Are The NuLeaf Naturals Products?
The only products NuLeaf Naturals offers at the the time of this writing are Full Spectrum CBD oil tinctures for human consumption, and one pet-specific formula, which is labeled as a “Full Spectrum Pet CBD Oil.”

The pet-specific formula works on either dogs or cats (and YOU can take it too IF you ran out of yours!), and contains 50 mg of cannabinoids per 1 ml of oil. Administer 2-3 drops per 20 lbs (dosing recommendations are listed on the bottle).

NuLeaf Naturals CBD Price Per Dose:
Sticker Shock? Take a deep breath, it's not as bad as it may look. I agree, NuLeaf product are priced in the 'higher bracket'. However, in order to really find out if you're getting your money's worth, you will have to look at the 'price per dose'. Simply divide the price by the mg content of the product.
For example: the 15 ml, 725 mg cost $99. 99 Divided by 725 = 0.136. The price (value) per dose is 14 cents or $0.14. That is about 15% higher than comparable products from other sources.
240 mg - 5 ml
$0.16 per mg
725 mg - 15 ml
$0.14 per mg - single
$0.10 per mg - 6 pack
2,425 mg - 50 ml
$0.10 per mg - single
$0.09 per mg - 2 pack
$0.07 per mg - 6 pack
4,850 mg - 100 ml
$0.09 per mg - single
$0.07 per mg - 3 pack
$0.06 per mg - 6 pack
The 4 examples show that the lower potency products are indeed a bit higher than those of other producers. However, the values per dose of the higher potency products are great, especially when you purchase 3- or 6-packs.
In case you wonder, the bigger the bottle, the greater the value.
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
Pros Of NuLeaf Naturals
NuLeaf CBD Oil Is Whole Plant Extract
The 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. Therefore, they proved far more effective than CBD-only solutions in alleviating inflammation and pain sensation.
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 intoxicating and are being studied scientifically for a wide variety of health benefits. Cannabinoids work synergistically with each other which is known as the entourage effect and this synergy creates a more potent product.

Real User Reviews (Certifiable)
NuLeaf Naturals is selling Hemp derive oil product since 2017 and collected over 12 thousand positive reviews which are available on their website.
Below is a real 5-star review from a satisfied NuLeafs Naturals user.
I work graveyard shifts, so there are a lot of internal chemical processes going on (GI tract is off, thyroid hormone production, adrenal gland depletion, cortisol elevation, norepinephrine & melatonin production, circadian disruption, etc.) while forcing myself to be awake overnight until late morning that throw off my body's overall wellness. So I take it in hopes of overall calming bodily inflammation and deeper sleep levels and recovery. I also have chronic inflamed lymph nodes so I take it for overall bodily homeostasis as well as anxiety/stress. It's organic, so the hemp should be free of any pesticides/herbicides/genetically modified organisms. I appreciate that it is pure CBD!! (free of additives/no filler oils) = smaller dose to get the intended benefits [not throwing money away on partial CBD/ partial carrier oils]. It is a full spectrum of cannabinoids and terpenes for better Endocannabinoid receptor activation/synergy. Pitch dark glass bottling to prevent light intrusion and product degradation. CO2 extracted (no introduction of heat during extraction), so it doesn't break down the potency (or bioavailability) of the product that you are buying and spending good money on for an intended purpose. I've seen Dr. Josh Axe interviewing the Knox doctors about CBD and talked about starting with 2.5 mg and going up from there, or a 20 - 50 mg dose broken up over the day. So I started with that and I am up to about half a dropper per serving and it works great. I suggest to anyone interested in CBD to go out and research the numerous articles on the body's natural Endocannabinoid system, and CBD's role within that system, before making a decision based on social stigmas revolving around CBD. I've tried other brands before, but NuLeaf tastes more potent and seems way more effective to me. - Quantity is everywhere, but quality is everything.
Cons Of NuLeaf Naturals
Pricing Of Low Potency Oil
'Where there is light, there is shadow' goes the saying. Their pricing is a bit on the high side as far as the low potency product is concerned. It is unfortunate, because new and potential customers are getting hit with higher prices while trying to find out whether NuLeaf is the right product for them.
Conclusion To NuLeaf Naturals CBD Oil Review
Yes folks, we have a winner here. If you are looking for a provider of pure CBD Oil that kicks ass (in the positive way), NuLeaf Naturals should be your choice. Their high potency stuff, 1450mg, 2425mg and 4850mg received enough high praise to convince the biggest doubter that their money will not be wasted.
If you are new to the Hemp World and have not yet found what you need, I suggest you start with the low potency oil and experiment with taking different dosages until you are sure what's bet for you.
At any rate, make sure to look at the test results, and keep in mind:
The larger the bottle, the greater the value
