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.
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.
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.

Hemp CBD Oil THC Free


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.
I can not recommend this highly enough, as well as Lazarus Naturals in general. This is theee best value on cbd I’ve seen, and it’s the most healthy because of the extraction process and the oils it’s diluted with. I would give 100 stars if I could. Thank you, Lazarus Naturals!!! And thank you for helping people with disabilities and low income such as myself. I am now a forever-loyal-customer!
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).
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!
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.

Cannabinol results from the degradation of THC. There is little of it in the fresh plant, but decarboxylation often raises the amount of CBN in the plant as an effect. CBN is only mildly psychoactive and has a higher affinity for the CB2 receptor than the CB1 receptor, linking CBN to the body’s immune system. In hemp oil, CBN is present in levels of 0.2% or lower.
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.)

CBD has been producing a whole lot of buzz in the health community of late – but perhaps not the kind of buzz you might expect from a cannabinoid. Since you’re reading this, you’ve probably heard of CBD and its many touted benefits. From chronic pain to mental health, CBD has the potential to alleviate an astonishing number of ailments. But like many, you might be fuzzy on the details. Consider this your primer on all things CBD.


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’.
For our review of the best CBD topicals available online, we focused only on companies which make third-party, independent lab results available to consumers. Lab results are available online, included in the order, or on request. It’s vitally important that consumers know exactly what products they’re consuming: how strong it is, and whether it has any impurities. We also focused on brands with fast, friendly customer service and easy to use websites.
Tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, is one of the cannabinoids present in both marijuana and agricultural hemp, and it is the substance responsible for giving a psychoactive effect on the body. It is what gives a user a “high.” The reason why hemp is used over marijuana when creating CBD oil is because of the former’s innate low levels of THC over CBD, making it perfect for CBD oil processing.
We take an extra step. Using advanced chromatography, Calm Hemp Oil is free of THC, while retaining the full spectrum of cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids that create an entourage effect and may support full-body health. Calm hemp oil comes from premium non-GMO strains of hemp, organically grown in Colorado, USA and is 100% natural, with a refreshing mint taste.

Many people are familiar with cannabidiol (CBD), which is found in highly concentrated amounts in our products, but there are actually dozens of cannabinoids found in hemp, which have shown many benefits in studies. We choose to make all our products with full-spectrum hemp oil, which includes all of the cannabinoids found in the plant, so you don’t miss out on any of the benefits.
I just wanted to say thank you. My 19 year old daughter has been suffering from chronic back pain since age 13. She has been to multiple doctors and chiropractors and has had MRIs and x-rays. Has been on multiple medications for pain and nothing was working. I decided to try purchase your high potency CBD oil as a last resort and to both of our astonishment for the first time she hasn’t had pain during the 2 weeks she has been taking it. I will be purchasing more of your product. Thank you so much.

We also rated the product based on the type of CBD they used: isolate, full-spectrum decarb, broad-spectrum, or distillate. There’s a lot of debate around what is actually best, but our first decision was to give points to CBD oil that contains a range of cannabinoids. While there are certainly people with good reasons for choosing an isolate, there’s a lot of good evidence that CBD works better in combination with other cannabinoids (this is called the “entourage effect”).


When CBD is referred to as full spectrum or whole plant CBD, it means that the CBD contains all other cannabinoids found in the marijuana plant including CBN (Cannabinol), CBG (Cannabigerol), and THCV (Tetrahydrocannabivarin), to name a few. And yes, along with these cannabinoids, Full Spectrum CBD also contains trace amounts of THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol), but in very low concentrations (up to .3%), resulting in very minimal psychoactive stimulation.
