mintedLeaf uses high-quality U.S.-grown hemp to formulate their products. In order to produce a hemp extract that is truly Phytocannabinoid-rich, the brand skips the CO2 extraction used by many brands (which may eliminate some of the plant’s terpenes and cannabinoids during extraction). Instead, they have perfected the ethanol-based extraction process and use it to extract the full, bountiful collection of cannabinoids and terpenes from the hemp’s flowers, stalks, and leaves.
mintedLeaf offers batch-specific test results for their products on their website. These tests look at the cannabinoid profile of each batch, and rule out pesticides, mycotoxins, heavy metals, and more. Each product is also fitted with a QR code to help you easily access the lab tests relevant to that batch.
mintedLeaf’s product line is small and simple, but it still offers just enough variety that new and experienced users alike can find something that works for them. For starters, their CBD tincture comes in one fitting flavor—mint. However, the tincture offers the benefits of natural hemp and Medium Chain Triglyceride (MCT) oil, with no added ingredients or synthetics. These tinctures are also available in five different potencies from 250 mg to 1,500 mg, which offer a one mL dose ranging from 17 mg to 50 mg. Or, if you prefer something right in the middle, their full-spectrum Gel Capsules offer a 25 mg dose of the same quality hemp formula.
Their topicals, however, are THC-free. They still boast a colorful cannabinoid and terpene profile, though, and are classified as broad spectrum products. The line includes five different products, each with a unique formulation intended for managing pain. The Cold Therapy line uses their hemp formula in combination with menthol. For instance, the Cold Therapy Pain Relief Gel and Cold Therapy Pain Relief Roll-On offer a four-percent menthol solution for mild to moderate pain, while the Cold Therapy Cream offers a 10-percent menthol formulation for more severe ailments. Alternatively, the Heat Therapy combines CBD and Capsaicin for a warming effect muscles and joints. Or, if you prefer, they have an Odorless Histamine Dihydrochloride Cream with 150 mg of hemp extract for tackling these same topical issues.
mintedLeaf expertly designed their product line to be small and simple while still offering high-quality, full-coverage relief to consumers. We like everything about the brand and their science-based approach to CBD, a value we like to lend ourselves to as well. With that (and their thorough, third-party lab testing) in mind, we are happy to offer the brand our full seal of approval.
