Some companies, especially those who sell their products at a ridiculously low price, may use cheap methods when extracting CBD oil. This requires toxic solvents that are dangerous to our health such as propane, hexane, pentane and butane. Two of these are commonly used in gas stoves and ranges, such as propane and butane, and all of them are hydrocarbon gases found in petroleum.
Our reviews also include the ingredients and a description of the scent and texture of each CBD topical. We tried to remain neutral in our descriptions of each product, since each consumer’s experience is subjective. These are all high-quality CBD creams, balms and salves, but you may find you prefer one scent over another. You might love or hate menthol. Some people prefer a light texture, while other buyers are looking for CBD topicals to use in a massage.
And now, onto the thorny issue of legality. The simple answer to the question is yes – if it is extracted from hemp. The 2014 Farm Bill established guidelines for growing hemp in the U.S. legally. This so-called  “industrial hemp” refers to both hemp and hemp products which come from cannabis plants with less than 0.3 percent THC and are grown by a state-licensed farmer.
Cannabidiol is a plant compound extracted from cannabis (either marijuana or hemp) that is being reported by many to have positive effects on many conditions which have been requiring pharmaceutical solutions, such as cancer, diabetes, epilepsy, anxiety, TMJ, restless leg syndrome and so much more.  CBD extracts from marijuana typically have THC to some extent, thus causing some degree of ‘high’ and may or may not be legal where you live.  CBD extracts from hemp can either by CBD (singluarly) or in full spectrum cannabinoid blends.  Many people find relief with CBD in singular fashion, but best results are typically reported after taking CBD in full spectrum extracts.
There is a lot of confusion out there. Both industrial hemp & marijuana are separate strains of the cannabis plant (hemp is c. sativa and marijuana can be either other strains of c. sativa or c. indica–marijuana has much, much more THC than hemp, which has little-to-none). The site is reviewing only CBD oils made from industrial hemp (more expensive from flower, cheaper & weaker from seeds & stalks) because those are the only kinds of CBD oil one can buy in all 50 states anywhere (not just licensed dispensaries), whether the state allows recreational weed, medical marijuana with an official cannabis ID card, or no marijuana whatsoever for any purpose.
CBD is found bonded naturally to fats in many organic sources, most notably within a human mother’s breast milk.  This allows the P-450 enzyme in the liver to naturally break down CBD to then utilize it within the endocannabinoid system.  We replicate this process, in the most organic way we can, through bonding the hemp-derived cannabinoids in MCT Coconut oil.  We want your experience using our hemp oil to be easy and accurate!
So not only do our products include a variety of phytocompounds, each with their own health benefits*, but all of these compounds work together, building on their individual strengths to further heighten the body's positive response to CBD. Scientists named this process the “entourage effect,” which means that our whole-plant hemp extract provides more complete health benefits than taking CBD on its own.

This may be a good place to point out that not all CBD products are created equal. The industry is still largely unregulated, and the quality and quantity of CBD in a given product will vary wildly. Third party testing definitely helps to monitor companies’ claims, but it’s still up to you as the consumer to do your homework on the best CBD products.

As shown in the chart above, each cannabinoid offers different benefits for a wide variety of ailments. Notably, CBD offers most of the benefits of each cannabinoid combined. While there is no debate that CBD offers the most benefits compared to any single cannabinoid, many wonder if CBD alone is more effective for treating ailments than all the cannabinoids combined.
Hi Stephen, this is something we are currently working on. The difficulty with full spectrum products is that the terpenes and plant matter which people attribute benefits to, also bring with them the essential flavors of hemp. We have designed two new full spectrum flavors (french vanilla mocha and chocolate mint) which mask the hemp flavor, but it will be a few months until we have ramped up the production necessary to support these products.
This is because these varieties of cannabis contain less THC (or tetrahydrocannabinol), the chemical that produces psychoactivity in humans; in other words, THC is what makes people feel high. CBD offers many of the health benefits of medical marijuana without the high, making it more versatile and less controversial to both users and the community.
I want to thank Lazarus for such a wonderful product. I have been using for about a month for chronic pain issues and take for breakthrough pain. It helps so much that I believe the next step is to wean myself off of narcotics and go with this , I believe between the coconut oil that I rub on and this product it will help me better than narcotics have. I wish I would have started this years ago !! Thank you so much
There’s also been a lot of talk lately about “microdosing” CBD. This refers to an incremental process of finding your minimum effective dose. You can do this with any concentration of CBD oil, but lower concentrations will take longer. In a 2017 article in Rolling Stone, Dr. Dustan Sulak outlines his protocol for microdosing. You can begin this process by asking yourself three questions:
Strength is also an extremely important consideration. Beginners may find that it’s easier to control dosage using a lower strength tincture. On the other hand, experienced CBD consumers know that high strength tinctures are more cost effective. Although stronger tinctures cost more, you get more CBD oil and other beneficial cannabinoids in each drop. Most CBD brands offer more than one option for strength.
In fact, numerous studies have looked at the relationship between CBD and pain, and the results are promising. Researchers have looked at various kinds of pain – from joint pain to cancer pain. One finding is that CBD increases levels of glutamate and serotonin – both neurotransmitters that play a role in pain regulation. And CBD’s anti-inflammatory properties help by tackling the root cause of much chronic pain.
Others companies use organic, pharmaceutical-grade ethanol to process CBD. The ethanol, which is essentially grain alcohol, is used to remove unneeded toxins and residues from the base hemp plant. This method of extraction is generally considered to be the extraction process that yields the highest amount of cannabinoids among the different refinement processes as well as being considered the safest method of extracting CBD for human consumption.

Our hemp extracts are rich in many cannabinoids, beyond cannabidiol (CBD), and contain a host of terpenes as well. Cannabinoids present in our extracts include, but are not limited to, testable amounts of CBD, CBG, and CBC. Present terpenes in our extracts include, but are not limited to, testable amounts of alpha-Pinene, beta-Myrcene, beta-Pinene, d-Limonene, Linalool, beta-Caryophyllene, and alpha-Humulene. Each of these cannabinoids and terpenes enhance the overall therapeutic effect of CBD and this is why they are very important to the quality of our products. The presence of these accompanying cannabinoids and terpenes, in addition to CBD, is referred to as “Full Spectrum.”
CBD has become quite popular over the last couple of years but despite what you might think it is only one the 100 compounds that have been identified in the Cannabis Sativa L plant. Full spectrum CBD oil, unlike CBD isolate products, includes a wide range of cannabinoids present in the cannabis or hemp plant. Depending on the condition and what you are looking to achieve it can provide a greater effect than CBD alone as all the cannabinoids work together in what is known as the entourage effect (more on that later).
