What is Leaflabs CBD oil?
Leaflabs are a brand who manufacturer all their full-spectrum CBD products in the UK and use only the highest quality of ingredients. Their oils are more concentrated than other brands, with a large amount of full-spectrum CBD packed into a small bottle.
They also know that people enjoy different things and they, therefore, make their oil droppers in 3 different flavours. The natural flavour has an earthy, nutty and almost grassy taste, the citrus flavour has a strong, zingy and zesty taste, and the peppermint has a refreshing, soothing and minty fresh taste. Catering for all different preferences and requirements, there’s a CBD oil for you no matter what you like.
If you’re unsure of which flavour of CBD to order the first time around then you may be interested to know that the most popular of the Leaflabs flavours is the peppermint one.
What is CBD?
CBD (Cannabidiol) is an organic compound which is extracted from the flowers and leaves of the hemp plant. The properties and potential health benefits of hemp are well-known, hence why CBD products are becoming more and more popular.
Although CBD products are derived from the cannabis plant, they do not get you “high” in any kind of way, even if you were to consume high amounts. This is because all Leaflabs CBD products contain <0.06% of THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) which another cannabinoid from the cannabis plant, but it is the one which attaches to receptors in your brain and gives you a psychoactive effect.
It’s for this reason that all CBD products that you can buy legally, are derived from hemp plants, not marijuana. Marijuana plants have a higher concentration of THC, while hemp plants all have less than 0.3% THC.
The Leaflabs products have an even lower amount of THC than is approved by the Home Office, which states that products must have no more than 0.2% THC.
What are the benefits of CBD oil?
Although the products make no medical claims, a number of people have experienced the benefits of the entourage effect. Leaflabs oils are made using full-spectrum CBD, which means that they contain a number of other cannabinoids from the cannabis plant (unlike CBD-isolate products, which only contain CBD). These cannabinoids all work harmoniously together and have been shown to enhance each other’s effects.
A major benefit of Leaflabs CBD oils is that they are stronger than a lot of their competitors in terms of actual CBD content. This means that you are likely to notice the potential health rewards, even on the lower strength bottle. The oil droppers themselves are also easy to use and the product is easy to work into your daily routine.
How much CBD do the oils contain?
The bottles are available in 3 different strengths; 250mg, 500mg and 100mg. This number refers to the total CBD content in the bottle, which should last you around 3 weeks (the bottle contains 20 servings). However, this will vary based on how often you use the product and if you are using it extremely quickly then you may want to consider adjusting the strength of CBD oil that you buy.
The recommended daily intake of the Leaflabs CBD oil is half a pipette full, which is 0.5ml. Based on this dosage, the CBD content for the different strengths are as follows:
In the 250mg, each serving contains 12.5mg of full-spectrum CBD
In the 500mg, each serving contains 25mg of full-spectrum CBD
In the 1000mg, each serving contains 50mg of full-spectrum CBD
Each bottle also contains a healthy helping of terpenes, phytocannabinoids and essential oils, which all come with potential benefits of their own, as well as the ability to strengthen the effect of the CBD.
Leaflabs CBD oils are made with 100% cannabis sativa L. and they are also gluten-free, suitable for vegans and not tested on animals.
How do I use CBD oil?
Unscrew the lid and gently squeeze the rubber end to suck some of the oil up into the pipette. Remove the top from the bottle and check what level the pipette is at; you should be aiming for around half a pipette to get the serving suggestion.
Place the pipette in your mouth and gently squeeze the rubber top to dispense the oil under your tongue. Hold the oil in your mouth for as long as possible, until fully absorbed.
Consistency is key when it comes to CBD so to see any benefits, you should follow a regular routine, rather than to take servings sporadically. Try taking the CBD oil first thing in the morning or just before you go to bed to help to remind you and keep going with this for a number of weeks.
If you have been using the products for a few weeks and haven’t noticed any benefits then you may want to try a higher strength oil (if you are taking the 500mg then swap to the 1000mg bottle, for example), or you could try taking the oils alongside another CBD product like a spray or a capsule.
Because this product is a food supplement and doesn’t contain any medicines or THC, it is not possible to overdose or to take too much.
