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.
There is a lot of confusion out there. Both industrial hemp & marijuana are separate strains of the cannabis plant (hemp is c. sativa and marijuana can be either other strains of c. sativa or c. indica–marijuana has much, much more THC than hemp, which has little-to-none). The site is reviewing only CBD oils made from industrial hemp (more expensive from flower, cheaper & weaker from seeds & stalks) because those are the only kinds of CBD oil one can buy in all 50 states anywhere (not just licensed dispensaries), whether the state allows recreational weed, medical marijuana with an official cannabis ID card, or no marijuana whatsoever for any purpose.
This is my experience with taking CBD 3000mg for the last 6 months. My blood pressure has gone down, I am able to sleep better, the eczema on my hand has disappeared (using a drop or two twice a day on the area). Sort of did an assessment of my body/joints. Everything feels different in a good way. Joints seem to move smoother than before taking CBD. All is great here. Thanks, Lazarus Naturals for such great reasonably priced products.
I purchased Ananda professional full spectrum Extract 600 20/mg/ml CBD oil. I started with .5ml dose the first night right before bedtime. I did not sleep well. I tried the same dose the following evening, and again, poor sleep. I tried it for two more nights and had the same results. I’m very sensitive to steroids and will only use them as a last resort, but the way I felt after taking the CBD oil, reminded me of how poor my sleep is on steroids. Or how vitamin B12 can affect me if I take it too late in the day. I have a lot of inflammation and pain and hoped the CBD oil would help. I am quite surprised at my reaction to it. Anyone else have trouble sleeping when taking it?
Mimi says the effective oils are made from the marijuana plant, not hemp. Why are you rating only hemp oils? Are hemp oils the only oils that do not have any THC? The other question that arises is the difference between ml and mg in measuring the strength of these oils. They are quoted as ml, but there is the question of the “density” limit of 95mg? Very confusing.
Like any manufactured product, one of the best ways to ensure quality is to use high-quality materials. This is especially important in CBD oil because of the hemp plant’s characteristic as a “hyperaccumulator.” This means that the hemp plant easily absorbs anything that is present in the ground that it was cultivated and farmed. If a hemp plant grew on rich soil, the resulting plant will be of high quality that can produce CBD oil in the same high-quality as well.
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.
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.
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.
