As shown in the chart above, each cannabinoid offers different benefits for a wide variety of ailments. Notably, CBD offers most of the benefits of each cannabinoid combined. While there is no debate that CBD offers the most benefits compared to any single cannabinoid, many wonder if CBD alone is more effective for treating ailments than all the cannabinoids combined.
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).
I just received my second order of CBD oil ever and it defintely won’t be my last from Lazarus. After researching CBD oil brands to my heart’s content, I landed on Lazarus as it seems to be one of the top five best brands. That coupled with being the most economical led me to place my first CBD oil order with them. Their shipping to me (in Portland) the past two orders have always gotten here within two days, and I dig their product — although I don’t have anyting to compare it to. All in all, this is a five star company and you really can’t go wrong.
Received my first order about a month ago. Wanted to try it before giving feedback. I would frequently wake up at night with my hands just throbbing. I ordered the high potency tropical isolate. I have been taking a total of 60mg a day split into two doses. It has greatly reduced the pain in my hands, no longer waking up at night from the pain. I have also noticed it has a calming effect. Order was processed immediately and shipped right away with tracking. I am going to order the full spectrum when it is time for a refill as I can see it may work better for my needs. I would highly recommend LN and their products.

It was previously believed that CBD in its isolated form was more potent and concentrated than full spectrum CBD; however, in 2015, the theory was debunked by a study from the Lautenberg Center for General Tumor Immunology in Jerusalem. In the study, researchers administered full spectrum CBD and CBD isolate to two different groups of mice. When comparing the data of the two groups, the results proved that the group administered with full spectrum CBD were provided with higher levels of relief. Furthermore, the study demonstrated that full spectrum CBD continued to provide relief as the dose increased, while CBD Isolate did not provide the same effect when there was an increase in dosage.
Strength is also an extremely important consideration. Beginners may find that it’s easier to control dosage using a lower strength tincture. On the other hand, experienced CBD consumers know that high strength tinctures are more cost effective. Although stronger tinctures cost more, you get more CBD oil and other beneficial cannabinoids in each drop. Most CBD brands offer more than one option for strength.
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”).
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.
While full spectrum CBD has ultimately proven to be more effective than CBD Isolate and can be used to effectively treat a wide variety of ailments, it does not discredit the effectiveness of CBD Isolate. There are a wide variety of situations when CBD isolate would be preferred over Full Spectrum CBD. For example, you may not necessarily need the full capabilities of Full Spectrum CBD, or if you aren’t legally allowed to use THC. It is also important to note that other cannabinoids may cause negative reactions when isolated CBD wouldn’t (if the condition you are suffering from is critical, we definitely advise you speak to a medical consultant before trying out any version of CBD).
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.

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 can try ingesting our tincture directly so you don’t have to keep it in your mouth as long, however, this may lower the amount of CBD your body eventually processes. You can also add the tincture to other foods or drinks to mask the flavor. Additionally, you can eat or drink something after taking the tincture to cleanse your pallet. We hope this helps!
The aforementioned entourage effect is the main reason behind the efficacy of whole plant extracts. There are over 100 ‘identified’ compounds in the cannabis plant. While most of these compounds have their own therapeutic benefit, they combine synergistically to provide a far better performance than any single compound, including CBD. Here are a couple of examples of conditions that benefit from the entourage effect:
There are over 80+ beneficial compounds that are naturally found in hemp. Collectively these compounds are called cannabinoids. When you take hemp oil, you support your endocannabinoid system which explains why people all over the world are using hemp oil to help calm the effects of temporary inflammation, ease stress and everyday discomfort, and improve the quality of sleep.
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’.

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.
There’s also been a lot of talk lately about “microdosing” CBD. This refers to an incremental process of finding your minimum effective dose. You can do this with any concentration of CBD oil, but lower concentrations will take longer. In a 2017 article in Rolling Stone, Dr. Dustan Sulak outlines his protocol for microdosing. You can begin this process by asking yourself three questions:
This may be a good place to point out that not all CBD products are created equal. The industry is still largely unregulated, and the quality and quantity of CBD in a given product will vary wildly. Third party testing definitely helps to monitor companies’ claims, but it’s still up to you as the consumer to do your homework on the best CBD products.
