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.
Based on the comparison above, full spectrum hemp oil is more effective than CBD isolate, making it highly recommended for patients interested in holistic approaches to medicinal cannabis treatments. Hemp oil is an extremely potent source of CBD (responsible for a large bulk of the oil’s cannabinoid profile). To fully reap CBD oil benefits, one should explore the different mediums of the compound available on the market today.
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”).
Let’s not forget about terepenes and flavonoids too. While not cannabinoids from hemp, they are compounds found in hemp and other plants. Terpenes are fragrant oils that bind to receptors in the human body and carry a variety of health benefits.* Flavonoids are a group of phytonutrients that serve as cell messengers with their own health-promoting benefits,
Tetrahydrocannabinol is the most abundant cannabinoid in most medical and recreational marijuana strains. However, in hemp THC is a minor constituent and appears only in trace amounts under 0.3% by dry weight, as required by the U.S. government for hemp products. THC mimics the action of anandamide, a neurotransmitter naturally produced in the human body, and binds to CB1 receptors in the endocannabinoid system found mostly in the brain. The extremely low levels of THC in hemp make hemp oil non-psychoactive and safe for all ages to use.
Ordered this for my restless legs and it’s phenomenal, I have dropped the dosage down to about 6-7 drops a day (so about 15mg) and I have noticed a dramatic improvement in my sleep. I ordered my second small bottle and if the results remain constant I’ll be buying the 60ml next month! I have tried so many different things to help with sleep with no success or inconsistent results. I’m also a powerlifter and I’ve noticed a slight improvement in my recovery.
There’s a growing body of scientific evidence to support the use of topical CBD products to ease pain, inflammation, and the symptoms of arthritis. One study using rats found that topical CBD has “therapeutic potential for relief of arthritis pain-related behaviours and inflammation without evident side-effects.” More scientific research on humans is needed to confirm all of CBD’s benefits, but the initial research into topical use in humans is also promising.
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).
My bigger question is what about analytics ? So many bad lab’s out there in Cannabis and Hemp. Did they test for Pesticides ? Mycotoxins ? Heavy Metals (Hemp is great at dragging up heavy metals from the soil as well as from nutrient solutions, herbicides, etc..). The testing piece is critical and that a lab performs random testing to ensure that the final products on the shelf actually contain what’s on the label. Even good test results mean nothing if the product is cut after the testing.
WOW!! Blown away! I have suffered from pain for over 7 years, I can’t remember what it felt like to have pain that was less then off the charts, and i have a high tolerance for pain, So on hope and and a prayer I decided to try your The High Potency and WOW..I am blown away at how within a short time, my pain was down to a 2!! i was literally sobbing with relief after the first time using your product!! bless you all for ALL you do!!
While it is clear that full spectrum CBD may be more effective than isolate CBD, even at lower dosages, it may have some drawbacks. Full spectrum vs regular CBD comes down to this drawback for many people. If full spectrum CBD oil is not an option for you due to your obligations or lifestyle, this can help you make your decision more easily for sure.
I have tried 2 other “5 star” companies high potency oils and Lazarus is by far the best in terms of results, taste, and value/cost. Your product is phenomenal, as is the customer service. I get nervous to see product out of stock fairly often because I love it so much and don’t want to be left without something so helpful. Hoping it’s nothimg to worry about. In any event, thank you!!!
