FAQ

  • 1. WHAT IS CANNABIDIOL (CBD)?

    The researchers suggest that the non-psychoactive compounds in the hemp plant, such as CBD, could be a new treatment for chronic pain amongst other ailments. CBD is already in use for some conditions that cause chronic pain, such as multiple sclerosis and fibromyalgia.

  • 2. WHY DID YOU START NATURE LEAF ORGANICS?

    Nature Leaf Organics was founded with the desire to offer the highest quality line of phytocannabinoid rich (PCR) hemp oil products made from our American grown hemp. Our Oil is cultivated in our farm in Colorado Springs and we control the entire process, from seed to extraction.

  • 3. WHICH EXTRACTION METHOD DO YOU USE?

    Our extraction & purification process uses a proprietary and patented technology that preserves all the phytocannabinoids, terpenes and plant lipids, while eliminating unwanted waxes and chlorophyll.

    A rigorous testing scheme is followed to ensure that the critical attributes; taste, color, potency, and purity consistently meet customer’s requirements for making finished products.

  • 4. HOW CONCENTRATED ARE YOUR CBD PRODUCTS

    Our CBD extract is lab tested and is up to 85% CBD concentrated.

  • 5. ARE YOUR PRODUCTS LAB TESTED?

    A rigorous testing scheme is followed to ensure that the critical attributes; taste, color, potency, and purity consistently meet customer’s requirements for making finished products.

  • 6. What is better CBD Isolates, or Full Spectrum CBD?

    As the term suggests, full spectrum CBD comes with all the of the cannabinoids present in the plant. In hemp oil, this includes a long list of cannabis compounds, such as Cannabinol (CBN), Cannabicyclol (CBL), and Cannabichromevarinic Acid (CBCVA), Cannabigerol (CBG), and so on. Thus the ‘entourage effect’

    Meanwhile, when CBD is in isolate form, it is separated from the other compounds in the source plant.

    Researchers were able to prove that full spectrum CBD offers greater levels of relief, and by comparison, the group that was given CBD isolate did not experience the same level of relief. in addition while CBD isolates do provide some relief, they lose their effectiveness after prolonged use. And In contrast to Isolates, full spectrum CBD does not lose its effectiveness after prolonged use.

  • 7. HOW DO I STORE CBD PRODUCTS?

    Nature Leaf CBD products are best stored in a cool, dark place to preserve freshness. Avoid storing products near heat, direct sunlight, or in a refrigerator.

  • 8. WHAT IS THE HUMAN ENDOCANNABINOID SYSTEM?

    The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a biological system composed of endocannabinoids, which are endogenous lipid-based retrograde neurotransmitters that bind to cannabinoid receptors, and cannabinoid receptor proteins that are expressed throughout the mammalian central nervous system (including the brain) and peripheral nervous system. The endocannabinoid system is involved in regulating a variety of physiological and cognitive processes including fertility, pregnancy, during pre- and postnatal development, appetite, pain-sensation, mood, and memory, and in mediating the pharmacological effects of cannabis. The ECS is also involved in mediating some of the physiological and cognitive effects of voluntary physical exercise in humans and other animals, such as contributing to exercise-induced euphoria as well as modulating locomotor activity and motivational salience for rewards. In humans, the plasma concentration of certain endocannabinoids (i.e., anandamide) have been found to rise during physical activity; since endocannabinoids can effectively penetrate the blood–brain barrier, it has been suggested that anandamide, along with other euphoriant neurochemicals, contributes to the development of exercise-induced euphoria in humans, a state colloquially referred to as a runner’s high.

    Two primary endocannabinoid receptors have been identified: CB1, first cloned in 1990; and CB2, cloned in 1993. CB1 receptors are found predominantly in the brain and nervous system, as well as in peripheral organs and tissues, and are the main molecular target of the endocannabinoid ligand (binding molecule), Anandamide, as well as its mimetic phytocannabinoid, THC. One other main endocannabinoid is 2-Arachidonoylglycerol (2-AG) which is active at both cannabinoid receptors, along with its own mimetic phytocannabinoid, CBD. 2-AG and CBD are involved in the regulation of appetite, immune system functions and pain management.
