So, the next question is typically: DO I NEED ALL THESE OTHER CANNABINOIDS TO HELP MY CANCER (or epilepsy, diabetes, etc)? The answer is “maybe”. Some people find great results from cannabidiol or CBD alone. But, more people typically report better results when taking a full spectrum of cannabinoids (sometimes this includes THC, but often times, not). So, if you’re new to CBD and not sure what direction to go, these reports from people would generally indicate its best to try a full spectrum blend to give you the greatest chance of success. While having an extract that includes specifically the cannabinoid THC could also increase your chance for success, you have to ask yourself if you want to be ‘high’ all day when taking CBD. And, you have to consider whether CBD extracted from marijuana is legal where you are. Because of these two questions, CBD as part of a full spectrum of cannabinoid extracted from hemp, is often times the desired choice.
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!
Although low, the original amount of THC present in hemp may still cause a certain level of psychoactive effects when processed incorrectly. Remember, CBD oil is made from the extracts of hundreds, even thousands, of hemp plants, therefore, no matter how small a percentage of THC there is in hemp, it may still have a high concentration on CBD oils that have been processed poorly, especially since the equipment needed to properly process CBD oil from hemp can be costly.
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.
All this talk about THC lands us nicely in the whole “Full Spectrum vs. Pure Isolate” debate. Once you begin shopping for CBD products, you’ll notice a lot of jargon that gets thrown around without much explanation. Now that we’ve introduced THC into the conversation, we can talk about the difference between, and relative benefits of, Full Spectrum CBD and CBD Isolate (and the lesser-known contender: Broad Spectrum).
These drops are worth every penny! I first tried the 3,000 mg. Then bumped it up to 6000mg. I use about 1-1.5ml per day. I was hit head-on by a drunk when I was 19 in 1995. Coma 6 weeks hospital 6 months. This makes my life so much easier to live! Thank you Lazarus naturals for making such an awesome product!! And for making it so affordable! These products are worth their weight in gold!
When looking at isolate, it is important to verify the purity. While many are in the 99.9+% range with no identifiable amounts of THC, there are lower purity ones (such as 99.5% or lower) that may still have trace amounts that show up on the labs. This small amount is typically negligible, and is nowhere near the amount usually found in Full Spectrum products. But it’s still something to be aware of for those seeking the purest they can find.
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).
