While cannabidiol (CBD) is all the rage at present, it is often hard to understand what you are getting. Furthermore, with so many different CBD products on the market it’s hard to tell which are full spectrum, which are not and which products are made from CBD cannabis or CBD hemp.  In this article we will try to clear up any confusion, focusing the major part of the post around Full Spectrum CBD oil.
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.

Isolate is typically the CBD oil product of choice for those who get drug tested or are sensitive to other cannabinoids such as THC. Products labeled as Isolate will generally be highlighted as being 99+% pure CBD. Usually, these products will have nothing but CBD in them because the CBD has literally been isolated from everything else. You can find pre-made isolate oils that typically consist of a carrier oil, such as MCT Oil, infused with the crystalline isolate powder. You can also find the “raw” crystalline powder or slabs (a form of concentrate) on its own.

I have also called a couple places to get some input about what we may need, but they all said they cannot give advice. Then HOW do we know what to get. As for MOST of us, we are by no means well off. Quite the opposite, in fact. So to keep “trying” a bunch of different ones is not an option. Blue Bird in CO give discounts to low income, so would like to use their products if possible.


Marijuana & hemp are both cannabis sativa (and some marijuana is cannabis indica). But “industrial hemp” (the only source of CBD lawful in all 50 states, thanks to the Federal Farm Bill’s exemption of it from the Controlled Substances Act) CBD extract products are lawful in all 50 states, can be sold on the open market at any store (not just a licensed dispensary) or online to anyone over 18–regardless of the customer’s or mfr’s state’s medical or recreational weed laws.

Full-spectrum hemp oil refers to when the pure oil extracted from hemp contains all the same cannabinoids and compounds found in the original hemp plant. Unlike isolated or synthetic cannabinoids, full-spectrum hemp oil contains an array of cannabinoids, as well as many essential vitamins and minerals, fatty acids, protein, chlorophyll, fiber, flavonoids, and terpenes.

Another quality of a good CBD oil is that it is manufactured using the whole plant. CBD Isolates are becoming increasingly popular, but in reality, it is a cheaper material than whole plant extracts.  Using the whole plant, rather than using only one part, ensures that the oil contains not just CBD, but also the full range of primary and secondary constituents of the hemp plant. These include terpenes, flavonoids, and other cannabinoids that are generally believed to work synergistically with CBD, making the benefits exponentially higher than CBD alone.
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.

You may have read or heard in the news all the reports of people wanting to take CBD Oil for many ailments, some of which are cancer, epilepsy, chronic pain, TMJ, anxiety and diabetes.  And, many people are reporting some pretty fantastic improvements to their conditions after taking these oils.   The first thing most people want to know is: IS THERE ANY DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CANNABIDIOL FROM HEMP AND CANNABIDIOL FROM MARIJUANA?  And, the short answer is “no”; molecularly, CBD is CBD.  But, there are generally some differences in the CBD Extracts.  Let me explain this a bit further.
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.

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.
The taste of Full Spectrum Hemp CBD Oil is wholesome and hempy without going over the top. The CBD oil blends seamlessly with the hemp seed oil to create a mouth-watering earthy taste that goes exceptionally well with hot beverages as well as cold drinks and a variety of foods. The rosemary extract that is used in the Full Spectrum’s recipe as a natural preservative to ensure freshness gives a fresh, herby tone, and the end result won’t disappoint even the most demanding CBD oil gourmands.
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.

Hi Diane, we wanted to give some feedback on this subject. Our products are made from hemp which is naturally low in THC, however, they do contain federally acceptable levels of THC. Our full spectrum products contain up to 0.3% THC by weight. Our isolate based tinctures have an undetectable level of THC per our testing standards. However, we do not recommend CBD products for those who are worried about drug testing as there are many shared compounds between hemp and marijuana that could cause a false positive.
In short, Cannabidiol – or CBD – is a cannabis compound that has many therapeutic benefits. Usually extracted from the leaves and flowers of hemp plants – though marijuana can also be a source – CBD oil is then incorporated into an array of marketable products. These products vary from the most common, like sublingual oils and topical lotions, to the less common (think CBD lattes). Basically, if you can dream it, you can buy it.
Full Spectrum generally refers to CBD oil products that not only contain CBD,but also contain some terpenes and other cannabinoids such as CBG, CBN and even some THC. Usually these will be in ratios that were naturally occurring and extracted from the plant and specific strain. But they are also occasionally added back into products as an isolated form to raise the potency of the product. For those that get drug tested, Full Spectrum is something to be cautious about. The THC found in full spectrum hemp products is minimal (less than 0.3%), but can still trigger positive drug tests.
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.
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.
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.
To find the perfect serving size for you, we encourage you to experiment and try out different things, as there is no universally agreed upon rule for “best CBD consumption.”  In fact, studies suggest that different methods of ingestion and different serving sizes may give the best results depending on your goals. To experience the full benefits of CBD, we encourage you to consistently use the Full Spectrum Hemp CBD Oil for at least two weeks in order to allow your body adjusts to the effects.

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.
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).
So, with all this talk of marijuana and THC and being ‘high’, we typically find the next question to be: IS CBD LEGAL.  And, as you are probably well aware, there are several states where CBD extracts from marijuana are legal, there are many more that are not.  But, point blank, CBD extracted from hemp, whether singularly or as a full spectrum cannabinoid blend, is legal in all 50 states.
I just got mine delivered on Thursday and I will say this is the best thing I’ve spent money on in a while!! As a former THC user, there is a small chance that I will go back to using that again (at least until my state legalizes it). I literally get the same relief using CBD as I did with THC, but minus the psychoactive effects, which I don’t miss by the way. I feel alert yet relaxed all at the same time. The dosage recommends 1mL, but I’m good with just .5mL. I will be placing another order very soon. This stuff has changed my life!! Thank you Lazarus Naturals…total game changer!!

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.
Mimi says the effective oils are made from the marijuana plant, not hemp. Why are you rating only hemp oils? Are hemp oils the only oils that do not have any THC? The other question that arises is the difference between ml and mg in measuring the strength of these oils. They are quoted as ml, but there is the question of the “density” limit of 95mg? Very confusing.

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.
Like any manufactured product, one of the best ways to ensure quality is to use high-quality materials. This is especially important in CBD oil because of the hemp plant’s characteristic as  a “hyperaccumulator.” This means that the hemp plant easily absorbs anything that is present in the ground that it was cultivated and farmed. If a hemp plant grew on rich soil, the resulting plant will be of high quality that can produce CBD oil in the same high-quality as well.
The most abundant cannabinoid in hemp oil, making up over 90% of the cannabinoid content, cannabidiol or CBD is non-psychoactive and is the focus of the benefits from hemp oil. CBD has little affinity for CB1 or CB2 receptors, the main points of interaction for cannabinoids in the endocannabinoid system, and instead acts as an indirect antagonist of cannabinoid agonists, possibly allowing CBD to temper the high caused by THC. Our Gold Label RSHO™ is almost 25% CBD, making up most of oil’s weight. All other cannabinoids come in under 0.4% by weight.
Well For Starters,I Wanna Thank Lazarus for Honoring me and Giving me the Discount as A Qualification,And I Ordered the 6000 mg Bottle,I will Never Regret this,I can Take .25 ml and Be as Calm as a Cucumber,And Not Have to Take the Percocet Pain meds I was on,If Your Truly Asking Your Self Should I buy or not,I’m Gonna Say this,I’ve Bought Alot of Junk in my days,But this is The Real Deal,It Will Take good care of You,God Bless you Lazarus,Thank You For Taking Good Care of Us Veterans
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).
