To better understand how these two CBD formulas differ, imagine being presented with two types of spaghetti sauce. In the first bowl, you’ll find a simple spaghetti sauce made out of pure tomatoes (CBD isolate). In the second bowl, you can find a more complex spaghetti sauce, containing roasted garlic and fragrant Italian herbs (full spectrum CBD). It’s clear that both bowls are holding spaghetti sauce – but the second recipe is more flavorful and interacts with one’s taste buds differently (also known as the “entourage effect”).

The first step to finding your correct CBD dosage is getting as much information as you can about the product you’re using. What is the concentration of CBD? Are there third-party lab tests that can confirm that? The CBD industry is still mainly a grassroots therapeutic movement, and as such, largely unregulated. Concentration and purity levels can differ greatly depending on the manufacturing process.  
CBD is extracted from both plants in just the same way.  But, when it’s extracted from hemp, it is often times, extracted by itself.  Beyond CBD, there are a host of other plant compounds, called cannabinoids, present in both plants, including THC (more on THC later).  We won’t go into all the other compounds in this article as that would take a book to detail, but a short list of the most common ones are:  CBDA, CBG, CBGA, CBN, Terpenes and Phytonutrients, and THC.  Generally, when CBD is extracted from marijuana, all these compounds are extracted together and the extract is then formulated into various products, thus giving the user this “full spectrum” of cannabinoids.  Generally, when CBD is extracted from hemp, it may or may not include this full spectrum of cannabinoids.  So, this is the first important distinction between CBD from hemp and CBD from marijuana.  When it comes from hemp, it may or may not include all the other cannabinoids.  When it comes from marijuana, it almost always does, including the cannabinoid: THC.  (Note:  ALL Highland Pharms products use a full spectrum of cannabinoid extract.)
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.
Another field in which CBD is creating a buzz is in the area of mood disorders like anxiety and depression. Both conditions have been treated with a variety of medications, courtesy of Big Pharma, that have had varying levels of success. Again, the long list of side effects can be off-putting to someone who just wants to get through the day without the sweaty tension of anxiety or the gray haze of depression.

I have tried 2 other “5 star” companies high potency oils and Lazarus is by far the best in terms of results, taste, and value/cost. Your product is phenomenal, as is the customer service. I get nervous to see product out of stock fairly often because I love it so much and don’t want to be left without something so helpful. Hoping it’s nothimg to worry about. In any event, thank you!!!

The manufacturer will probably give you a recommended dosage, but bear in mind that this isn’t set in stone. What you need to find is your own minimum effective dose. “Minimum effective dose” is a medical term which refers to the amount of a substance you need for the results you want, and above which, the substance doesn’t increase in effectiveness.
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.
Unfortunately, it’s not always easy for consumers to determine which CBD brands and product claims’ are trustworthy. With the growth in popularity of CBD oil, new brands and merchants are coming out every day with promises to offer you the best, high-quality supplement. However, there are few regulations, if any, to help monitor and regulate these claims.
It’s a truism to state that pain is an inevitable part of life. And it’s true that we all, from time to time, experience pain that is short-lived and treatable. But those who deal with chronic pain know the debilitating, life-sucking reality of this condition. And traditional medications often come with long lists of side effects which can be as debilitating as the pain itself.
I am very pleased with the quality and the price of the high potency cbd. I have had my medical cannabis card for years and really became trusted with the high cost of my natural medicine, because the high costs and low cbd dosages found in the dispensaries. Now I can purchase high quality and high potency pure cbd oil at a great price without the worries of traveling with banned substances. Works better than xanax or antidepressants and no pharmaceutical side effects! I always take with my morning coffee and for pain and stress as needed. The only concern I have is with the shipping method as I would really benefit from USPS priority shipping instead of waiting for the long cross country ups ground, as the ups 3 day is very expensive. Besides the shipping options, I give this an A+! Thank you.
When seeking out Full Spectrum products, you may come across some called “Broad Spectrum” that claim to have 0% THC. It’s important to verify lab tests on these products to make sure that this is not a false claim and you’re encouraged to still exercise caution with these products if drug testing is a concern. These products have sometimes gone through additional processing to try to isolate and remove as much THC as possible while still maintaining some of the other cannabinoids and terpenes.

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 label of this CBD oil tincture was not as easy to read as other products. Palmetto Harmony’s hemp is grown in Kentucky. This family operated business began when CBD offered unique benefits to their ailing child, Harmony. In addition tinctures, they offer topicals, capsules, pet products and even transdermal CBD patches. This tincture was selected by our friends at Anavii Market.
