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.
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.
We gave the highest points to companies that use a CBD distillate for their tinctures. The process of distillation creates an extract that is pure on a molecular level. There are people who think distillate is too pure, and that a full spectrum decarb produces a more effective tincture. But in light of the inconclusive evidence, we prefer a distillate. The process allows for a high degree of control as to the finished product. It’s also odorless and tasteless, so those tinctures tend to taste better.
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.
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.
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).
