CBD is all the rage at the moment, and local brand Leaf Labs are looking to make a name for themselves in the South African market.
There aren’t many premium brands in SA as of yet, with many new names popping up but not all of them have got the right recipe. However, Leaf Labs may be onto something here.
Who is Leaf Labs?
We had the opportunity to test some of their Daily Drops, with 1000mg of CBD. This is their all-natural, hemp-derived CBD oil, using coconut oil as their carrier. This MCT coconut oil is what allows the body to digest the CBD as effectively as possible.
Leaf Labs also do well to ensure that their lab reports are openly available on their website. Each product is held to high standards, with a certain level of quality to be expected. It’s stated that no pesticides are used on their plants and that their product is vegan-friendly. And quite importantly, their CBD contains 0% THC.
Their Daily Drops CBD is considered the most popular product in their range. Just from appearance, this is no surprise. They have curated a simple, but essentially clean brand appearance. Their Daily Drops stand out with a great green accent to a white label. Right from the start, they have a design that is eye-catching, clean, and easy to understand. They provide the essentials such as basic product info, dosing suggestions and their ingredients.
Then we put Leaf Labs to the test!
Starting with the overall experience, Leaf Labs haven’t gone out of their way to add any flavouring to their CBD. Their oil mix, thankfully, doesn’t have the usual overwhelming earthy cannabis taste, so the flavouring isn’t missed. Their CBD is plain, clear and odorless – making it easy to hold under the tongue for a minute before swallowing.
The 1000mg bottle is quite strong. It provides a potent calming effect, great for managing the stresses of daily life. Those with anxiety and depression may find this CBD helpful, due to the relaxation it offers. It may help with mood elevation, as it made some members of the Cannabis News Team a bit more chipper. This product certainly made the long workdays fly by, helping a few of us here breeze through the day effectively while helping manage daily stress and the aches that come with sitting at a desk for most of the day.
Dosing is very important with this CBD. We noted that a high dose can have the opposite effect, making you drowsy and ready for bed within the hour. However, you will have a quality sleep thanks to this product. A couple of drops before bed will help you sink deeply into your bed and rest easy.
