LEEF Organics: 60-Second Summary
Lakewood, Colorado-based Infinite prides itself on its clean, streamlined product: CBD isolate. (No oil – no problems?) The powdered substance is used to create a wide range of products for the company, including the unique and fun “beard flux,” which helps bring all the natural benefits of CBD oil to the underserved world of facial hair. Still, we were left searching for much in-depth information about the company itself or how Infinite CBD sources or extracts its cannabidiol isolate.
LEEF Organics Brand Review
Like us, the people behind Leef Organics are CBD believers because they’ve both seen the positive effects and read the solid science behind the importance of the endocannabinoid system (ECS). Due to the anti-inflammatory benefits of CBD proven in numerous studies, they believe everyone should add this powerful elixir to their daily routine. Finally, Leef Organics asserts that prevention is just as important as treatment. And we wholeheartedly agree.
Leef Organics appropriately sources their hemp from organic farms in Northern California. We are uncertain of their extraction method, as they only say they use a “unique whole plant extraction technique.” But judging from the description under their Thrival tinctures and the fact that they don’t use any chemicals or overheat the solution, we believe they use a cold-pressed method. With this method, pressure is the driving force of the extraction, so heating and solvents aren’t necessary. It’s thought to retain the maximum amount of phytochemicals and preserve the integrity of CBD and other compounds. Definitely a great extraction option.
The Leef Organics CBD product line is small and focused and consists of entirely full-spectrum varieties like:
- Thrival CBD Oil Tinctures
- CBD Balm
- CBD Soap
- CBD Skin Oil
- CBD Topical Roll-On
There’s certainly nothing unnatural or any ingredients we don’t approve of in the products. But what we see happening with Leef Organics is a trend all over the CBD space right now — organic claims that don’t check out.
Organic CBD! All organic ingredients! Practically every new CBD vendor has similar phrases blasted all over their website. But often, a quick and easy ingredients check will debunk their organic promises.
This is the case with Leef Organics who states under their mission, “LEEF is 100% organic and non-GMO from seed to soil to the finished product.” We were able to find organic chamomile in their CBD soap, and that’s it, with the exception of their CBD oil which they claim is organic. That’s just one additional ingredient in the whole line that’s actually organic!
Plus, they use propanediol as a carrier in their Thrival tinctures.
Now, propanediol isn’t quite as scary as it sounds and is thankfully derived from natural sources. BUT the most widely used propanediol is made from corn syrup (hello GMOs!) and a genetically modified strain of e-coli. Ultimately, the Leef Organics claim of having a foundation of organic/non-GMO isn’t the truth. 100% organic is a bold and expensive promise for a CBD merchant to make, and there are a few that follow through. Leef Organics isn’t one of them.
Bottom Line – Leef Organics boasts an all-natural CBD product line, but they don’t fulfill their organic promise with only one added ingredient listed as actually organic. Because their mission is downright misleading, we cannot award the Mission Badge in this instance. They’ll need to come clean on this front and start posting tests for safety to catch our attention.
