No, you *are no expert*–so you have no business making a diagnosis sight unseen. “Leaky gut” and “gluten sensitivity” (as opposed to celiac disease, which is legit) are among the trendy diagnoses du jour. You don’t know these folks’ diets, specific symptoms or official diagnoses. Don’t give me any blather about “Big Pharma,” “suppressing natural cures, “or the “medical industry conspiracy,” either. (“Suppression?” I get my CBD oil from an actual MD, with the approval of my oncologist).
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!
Not to be confused with its botanical cousin marijuana, premium hemp oil is extracted from the hemp plant. While hemp and marijuana share many of the same beneficial compounds—cannabinoids, terpenes, and antioxidant flavonoids—there is one important difference. Hemp has only trace amounts of THC, the psychoactive compound found in high amounts in marijuana, so there is no “high” when taking full spectrum hemp oil, just health benefits.
The aforementioned entourage effect is the main reason behind the efficacy of whole plant extracts. There are over 100 ‘identified’ compounds in the cannabis plant. While most of these compounds have their own therapeutic benefit, they combine synergistically to provide a far better performance than any single compound, including CBD. Here are a couple of examples of conditions that benefit from the entourage effect:
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.
I was highly impressed with this product, and honestly surprised. I have tried many different cbd products, from many different companies, only to find them to be mediocre at best. Lazarus naturals, by far has the most effective cbd I’ve yet to try. With only a 1ml serving, I was able to nullify my knee and foot pain after a 10 hour shift of non-stop standing and walking. Will for sure be a returning customer.
Ordered this for my restless legs and it’s phenomenal, I have dropped the dosage down to about 6-7 drops a day (so about 15mg) and I have noticed a dramatic improvement in my sleep. I ordered my second small bottle and if the results remain constant I’ll be buying the 60ml next month! I have tried so many different things to help with sleep with no success or inconsistent results. I’m also a powerlifter and I’ve noticed a slight improvement in my recovery.
Tetrahydrocannabinol is the most abundant cannabinoid in most medical and recreational marijuana strains. However, in hemp THC is a minor constituent and appears only in trace amounts under 0.3% by dry weight, as required by the U.S. government for hemp products. THC mimics the action of anandamide, a neurotransmitter naturally produced in the human body, and binds to CB1 receptors in the endocannabinoid system found mostly in the brain. The extremely low levels of THC in hemp make hemp oil non-psychoactive and safe for all ages to use.
THC is the plant compound that makes a person feel ‘high’. It is naturally found in much higher quantities in marijuana, and in virtually non-existent quantities in hemp. So, when taking a full spectrum cannabinoid extract from hemp, the THC level is so low that you do not feel ‘high’ or groggy. But, when taking CBD extracted from marijuana, even the “low CBD” strains typically have enough THC to cause someone to feel slightly ‘high’ or at least sleepy or groggy. And, if its NOT a low CBD strain of marijuana, then watch out, you will most likely experience a pretty significant ‘high’.
Do the right thing for your body and ensure that you only purchase high quality products from trusted sellers. Once you’ve decided between full spectrum vs regular CBD, you now need to make the choice of picking the right seller. Choose someone with a great reputation and independent lab testing results available on the site for all to see. You certainly want to make sure you get what you pay for!
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.
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.
Cannabigerol is known as the stem cell cannabinoid for its role as a precursor to other cannabinoids found in hemp and marijuana. Previously overlooked as a significant cannabinoid, the role of CBG is becoming better understood, and companies like Medical Marijuana, Inc.’s AXIM® Biotechnologies are starting to research its potential. Because most CBG is transformed into other cannabinoids like CBD or THC by the cannabis plant, natural CBG levels are low in most processed cannabis plants.

Full spectrum CBD does, however, bring with it the sticky issue of THC. The government regulates concentration levels of THC at 0.3 percent, an amount which results in minimal psychoactivity. But THC metabolites are stored in the fat cells of your body, building up over time. If you ever need to take a drug test, this could create an issue for you.
Seeing how well this product worked, I went on to sample other brands and various products of CBD and Hemp Extracts- This resulted as a waste of time and money because every top brand I’d read about online was either complete garbage (one brand starting with the letter E ending with L made me violently ill and I can’t even uncap the bottle without being made to feel sick) OR there was no discernible difference between those products and Lazarus. Keeping these facts in mind, there is absolutely without a doubt- no other product of CBD oil that can compete with these guys(Lazarus Naturals).
