If you’ve noticed a general elevation of standards in the CBD industry in 2019, you aren’t alone. We’ve seen the same thing, and we’re glad to see signs that the industry is maturing. We highlighted the positive effects of that change in our recent BioMD+ review. In that review, we described the great things that can happen when a brand focuses as much on the quality of its hemp extract as it does on the quality of the customer experience. Today, you’re going to learn about another new CBD brand in that same mold. Passion for hemp and passion for customer wellness have combined to make mintedLeaf one of today’s leading CBD brands. Let’s learn more in our mintedLeaf review.
About mintedLeaf CBD
The CBD products from mintedLeaf are perfect examples of the wonderful benefits that you can experience when you use a whole plant in its natural state – just as nature intended – but aren’t afraid to let science intervene a little if doing so can make the final product even better. This is a company that’s serious about its hemp. From the seed genetics to the growing environment and the extraction of the oil, no aspect of the CBD production process is too small for mintedLeaf’s single-minded attention to detail – and that attention to detail is very evident in the final product.
What Makes mintedLeaf Hemp Extract Special?
From the moment when you taste it for the first time, it’s clear that mintedLeaf has an entirely unique hemp oil extract on their hands. Even if you’ve already tried dozens of different CBD oils, we doubt you’ve tried one that looks or tastes quite like mintedLeaf. This is a dark, thick oil that’s as potent in taste and smell as it is in effectiveness. When mintedLeaf came up with their company’s name, though, they weren’t joking. The clean, crisp mint flavor in this CBD oil definitely tastes like a natural peppermint oil rather than the artificial mint essence that so many CBD brands use to flavor their products. True to the name, every CBD oil tincture from mintedLeaf contains the same delicious mint flavor.
MintedLeaf is a company that fully believes in the principle of the Entourage Effect. You’ll see information about the Entourage Effect all over the company’s website, and in keeping with that belief, the company offers nothing but full-spectrum hemp oil extracts. That might not be to your liking if you prefer CBD isolate-based products out of concern that the trace THC in full-spectrum CBD oil could potentially trigger a positive result in a drug test. There’s logic, though, in mintedLeaf’s conscious decision not to sell a less effective product. According to the principle of the Entourage Effect, an individual cannabinoid such as CBD is at its best only in the presence of the other cannabinoids and terpenes that occur naturally in the hemp plant. Every mintedLeaf product uses a full-spectrum hemp extract taken from hemp plants carefully selected for their impeccable genetics and rich phytocannabinoid profiles.
mintedLeaf CBD Review: Products
At the time of writing, mintedLeaf offers two products. The company’s flagship product is a mint-tinged full-spectrum hemp oil extract that’s available in several different strengths. For those who would rather not taste the very herbal, slightly bitter CBD oil, mintedLeaf also packages the same full-spectrum hemp oil in gelatin capsules for easy swallowing.
If you’ve never tried a CBD product before, we recommend starting with the full-spectrum mintedLeaf hemp oil tincture. As we mentioned above, it’s a dark hemp oil with a strong botanical flavor packaged in a nice amber glass bottle with a child-resistant cap. It’s available in five different strengths of 250, 500, 750, 1,000 and 1,500 total mg of CBD per bottle. This potent oil is our favorite mintedLeaf product because we believe that using a tincture is the best way to consume CBD overall. When you hold the oil under your tongue, the CBD begins to absorb sublingually. That way, you begin to get some quick relief while you wait for your digestive system to process the rest of the CBD in the oil. CBD capsules have benefits of their own – we’ll discuss those in a moment – but quick absorption isn’t one of those benefits. With mintedLeaf CBD oil, you get the ideal balance of quick relief and longer-lasting effects.
With mintedLeaf’s full-spectrum hemp oil soft gels, you’ll get the same full-spectrum CBD oil as in the tincture. Here, though, the oil is packaged in a gelatin capsule for easy swallowing. The CBD oil capsule is a perfect solution for anyone who tries the standard hemp oil product and doesn’t care for the flavor. Most of the CBD capsules on the market contain powdered CBD isolate, but that would violate mintedLeaf’s respect for the Entourage Effect – so this is one of the only CBD capsules in the world with a full-spectrum extract. You may also prefer mintedLeaf’s capsules over their CBD oil if you require consistent CBD dosing and don’t care about the quick relief that a sublingual CBD tincture can provide.
In our review of BioMD+ CBD, we pointed out that the brand appears to be leading the way for a new generation of CBD companies that care more about the quality of the customer experience. In the past, CBD brands were entirely happy to take your money – but not nearly so happy if customers decided that they wanted to return the products. To this day, most CBD brands still will not do anything for you if you’re unhappy with their products. Different people experience different results with CBD. Even various hemp strains can produce CBD oils with remarkably different effects. Some CBD oils, in other words, may not work for every person who tries them. That’s why we’re ecstatic about mintedLeaf’s satisfaction guarantee. If you’re unhappy for any reason, you can return any mintedLeaf product within 60 days for a refund.
From everything we’ve said so far in this mintedLeaf CBD review, it should be obvious that this is a truly premium product with some unique benefits that you won’t find elsewhere. You might assume that mintedLeaf, knowing that they have a premium product on their hands, has priced that product out of reach for most consumers – but that isn’t the case. In fact, mintedLeaf has some of the best prices for CBD oil in the entire industry.
mintedLeaf CBD Review: The Bottom Line
In an increasingly crowded industry, mintedLeaf is a CBD brand that manages to stand out. With a uniquely potent product, a tasty mint flavor and a satisfaction guarantee, mintedLeaf CBD oil is a great product with excellent customer-centric policies to match.
