By formulating our products with pure, full-spectrum hemp oil, we ensure that all the cannabinoids naturally found in the plant are in the hemp oil you buy from us. This also allows the cannabinoids to interact with the endocannabinoid system in what has become known as the entourage effect: when all the ingredients in hemp oil, including the terpenes, vitamins, and range of cannabinoids are allowed to work with the body naturally, as they would in the natural plant.
In the U.S., we live in a culture where more is often perceived as being better. And it’s easy, without even thinking about it, to apply that approach to CBD dosing. But when it comes to CBD, more is not necessarily better. In fact, for many, less CBD is more effective. One way to determine your optimal dosage is to start with a small amount of CBD for a couple weeks and then slowly increase your dosage, carefully taking note of symptoms, until you’re seeing the results you want.
I just got mine delivered on Thursday and I will say this is the best thing I’ve spent money on in a while!! As a former THC user, there is a small chance that I will go back to using that again (at least until my state legalizes it). I literally get the same relief using CBD as I did with THC, but minus the psychoactive effects, which I don’t miss by the way. I feel alert yet relaxed all at the same time. The dosage recommends 1mL, but I’m good with just .5mL. I will be placing another order very soon. This stuff has changed my life!! Thank you Lazarus Naturals…total game changer!!
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:
