The Bottom Line

Although mintedLeaf CBD has a nice website that is powered with an online chat feature where you can ask questions if the representatives are available, it does not provide very much information about the company. You can visit the ‘about’ page but the origins of the company remain very vague. However, a bit of research has revealed that the brand was founded in 2019.

They clearly state their mission statement on their website:

1. Striving to responsibly educate consumers on the benefits of hemp
2. Allow science to lead our product development
3. Utilize only the highest quality 100% USA grown hemp in all of our products

The company mintedLeaf is not an overly expensive CBD brand. They offer moderate prices with an average of $0.08 per milligram. Their product line is limited but they are expecting to grow at a later date. Currently, they sell topicals, soft gels, and tinctures.

The company proudly stands behind its products with a money back guarantee of 60 days. You can return the product for a full refund if you are not completely happy. They also provide free shipping on all orders of $30 or more.

All of mintedLeaf’s products undergo third party laboratory testing. The Certificate of Analysis pages are printed on their website under the ‘lab reports’ tab.

I carried on a brief chat with the representatives of mintedLeaf to find out if they use organic hemp and where it is sourced because I was unable to locate the information on their website. However, they have not emailed me back or answered my questions in the chat window. Eventually, I had to contact one of their representatives via email to gain the information that I sought.

Pros: Cons:
  • COA’s are published online and you can also obtain them by scanning the product’s label with your smartphone
  • Free shipping on orders over $30
  • Hemp is not certified organic
  • Limited product line
  • Customer service does not respond well to questions

About mintedLeaf

The brand mintedLeaf is very focused on making sure that its users experience the complete ‘entourage effect’ by providing full spectrum CBD products that are brimming with phytocannabinoids. However, they continue to maintain less than 0.3 percent THC (the legal percentage for the United States).

The website does not elaborate on the brand’s history. MintedLeaf is owned by MMG Equity Partners which is based out of Florida. MMG owns other CBD brands. On the website, they state that they use hemp that is sourced only from USA farms but they don’t specify where those farms are located nor do they state if they use only certified organic or non-GMO hemp. I did contact the company to ask these questions. Eventually, I had to email one of the representatives since numerous days passed with no answers via email or chat. I found out that all of their products are non-GMO and sourced from hemp grown in Colorado. However, the hemp used is not certified organic.

All of their products are full spectrum or broad spectrum. The boxes clearly list the ingredients plus supplemental facts. There are also directions and warnings printed on the product labels. Overall, the product labels are very nice, easy to read, and filled with important information. They are not the least bit vague on their product labels. Most consumers appreciate the wealth of in depth information provided in a very easy to read fashion.

At mintedLeaf they offer third party laboratory testing to not only guarantee purity but also show THC concentration and quantity of CBD. In the lab results below, the THC level is at 0.19 percent and the CBD amount is well within the acceptable spectrum.

They enlist the assistance of respectable third party laboratory testing to check for solvent residue, the presence of e. coli or yeast, and any residual organics. The overall cleanliness of the products is acceptable as stated in their COAs and lab reports.

The mintedLeaf website is easy to navigate. It has a great deal of good information about their products and answers to general CBD questions. However, it would be nice if they provided more details about the company itself.

Manufacturing Process

At mintedLeaf, they use CO2 extraction to pull the cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids from the hemp plant. CO2 extraction is eco-friendly and organic solvent free. Their products are formulated using full spectrum extract so they contain less than 0.3 percent THC or with broad spectrum extract so the products are free of any THC.

They put all products through third party laboratory testing. You can access the Certificate of Analysis (COA) on mintedLeaf’s website or via the QR code that is printed on the product’s label.

In order to obtain the lab reports for your product, visit mintedLeaf’s website. Go to the lab reports section of the website. Enter the batch number to look up your product’s specific reports. mintedLeaf uses Infinite Chemical Analysis Labs to perform all of its third party laboratory testing.

They offer email or online chat if you have questions about mintedLeaf’s products. I used the online chat feature to speak with one of mintedLeaf’s representatives. However, they did not answer my questions. The chat log stated that they would get back to me either via chat or email. Sadly, they did not get back to me either way.

All of mintedLeaf’s products are free of parabens, sulfates, artificial colors and dyes, phthalates, titanium dioxide, and preservatives, formaldehyde releasing agents and animal products.

The company provide free shipping on all orders over $30.

We compared the lab results for two products: mintedLeaf Cold Therapy Pain Relief and the mintedLeaf Full Spectrum Hemp Oil Tincture 1500mg

When you scan the QR on the mintedLeaf products it takes you to this page:

Once there, I entered the lot number to obtain the lab reports. Sadly, I was unable to find the products. Clearly, they are older and the lab results were no longer on the site. At that time, I again messaged customer service to obtain the results.

After using several email addresses, I finally obtained a response and they sent me the lab results that I requested.

Below are the lab results for Full Spectrum Hemp Oil Tincture 1500mg. It clearly shows that the CBD ratio meets all acceptable standards. Sadly, unlike most other brands, they do not test for the following which is cause for concern.

Pesticides – NOT Tested Microbials – NOT Tested Mycotoxins – NOT Tested Heavy Metals – NOT Tested Terpenes – NOT Tested Residual-Solvents – NOT Tested Filth – NOT Tested Water Activity – NOT Tested Moisture – NOT Tested

We calculated the deviation from the target value for the CBD content for mintedLeaf Full Spectrum Hemp Oil Tincture 1500mg. We found that it fell into the acceptable percentage of 0.8% per the lab report. The amount of CBD was 1487.4mg.

As you can see from the product list above, mintedLeaf does not carry a wide array of CBD products.

  • Gel Caps: You can purchase a 30 count bottle of full spectrum soft gels. Each one contains 25 mg of CBD for a total of 750mg of CBD per bottle. The price hovers at $0.08 per milligram of CBD
  • Topicals: mintedLeaf offers six pain relief topicals. All of the topicals contain 150mg of CBD but they also individually boast of other ingredients such as menthol, capsaicin, and histamine dihydrochloride. You can choose from roll-ons or creams. They are all sold in 3 ounce sizes. The price per milligram of CBD ranges around $0.13 depending on which topical variety that you pick.
  • Full Spectrum CBD Oil: You can choose from a variety of CBD potencies ranging from 250mg to 500mg, 750mg, 1,000mg and 1,500mg. The oil is flavored with a mint taste that helps to mask the full spectrum plant like flavor that most people associate with a full spectrum oil. The price ranges from $0.05 to $0.10 per milligram depending on the potency of the product.

Buying Experience

The mintedLeaf website is laid out well and easy to navigate. It is filled with helpful information on CBD and even an FAQ section. There is no need to hunt for the Lab Reports tab because it is displayed boldly at the top. It would be nice if the company provided more information about itself and the brand but overall, the website is acceptable.

They offer an online chat feature that you can utilize to ask a customer service representative questions. You also have the option of emailing the company. I did try to ask the customer service representative questions but they were unable to answer them and I was directed to email the company with my queries.

If you are a new customer, then they currently offer a 20 percent discount off your first purchase which is a nice perk. All you have to do to obtain the discount is to enter your email address.

There is free shipping available on all orders within the USA that exceed $30 total. At this time they do not offer international shipping.

‘The products are shipping in a box that carries the mintedLeaf logo on the surface but there is very little other information available. Many people who prefer discreet shipping will view as a plus.

You’ll receive a 60 day money-back guarantee on all products which is nice. You can return them for any reason.
