The label of this CBD oil tincture was not as easy to read as other products. Palmetto Harmony’s hemp is grown in Kentucky. This family operated business began when CBD offered unique benefits to their ailing child, Harmony. In addition tinctures, they offer topicals, capsules, pet products and even transdermal CBD patches. This tincture was selected by our friends at Anavii Market.
As the term suggests, full spectrum CBD comes with all the of the cannabinoids present in the plant. In hemp oil, this includes a long list of cannabis compounds, such as Cannabinol (CBN), Cannabicyclol (CBL), Tetrahydrocannabivarin (THCV) and Cannabichromevarinic Acid (CBCVA). It is crucial to point out that small amounts of THC can also be found in hemp. The government regulates concentration levels at 0.3 percent (dry weight) for “industrial hemp” products, resulting in very limited cerebral stimulation.
While researchers are calling for more robust studies on the role of CBD on mood disorders, there is promising research that points to CBD’s role as an anxiolytic – which means it has anti-anxiety effects. Another study showed CBD to have antidepressant effects comparable to those of the prescription antidepressant Imipramine. We noted above that CBD increases levels of glutamate and serotonin – and it’s these same neurotransmitters that play a crucial role in mood regulation.
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).
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.
This is my 3rd time ordering. I’m still happy with this company. People are loving my tinctures and my balm I can hardly keep on the shelf. I have had a handful of customers ask me for a tincture without coconut oil though due to allergies. They don’t offer this in a tincture only in Isolate which I’m still not sure if it will work the same. So I’m hoping a coconut free version will be available sometime in the future.
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:
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.
The Virgin Hemp Seed Oil that holds the Full Spectrum Hemp CBD Oil together is rich in antioxidants and omega fatty acids, making it an invaluable supplement to any person’s daily diet. This makes the Full Spectrum one of the most nutritious and complete CBD oil products, perfect for those who seek to establish a balanced life through an equally balanced diet.
Finally, in general, we almost always recommend full spectrum tinctures over supplements made from isolates (extracts of CBD alone). Full-spectrum or whole plant tinctures take advantage of the ‘entourage effect’ that comes from combining all the naturally occurring chemicals found in the hemp plant. Isolates are great for cooking with CBD or consumers that are especially sensitive to the taste of hemp extract, but some research suggests they may be less effective for certain uses than full spectrum extracts. All but two of the brands below are made from full spectrum hemp, and the exceptions are clearly noted.
Due to its non-psychoactive healing properties, Cannabidiol (CBD) has become a very popular option for patients seeking a natural alternative to treat conditions such as chronic pain, anxiety, epilepsy, and more. As patients start to understand how CBD can be used to alleviate their symptoms, they are often faced with a choice between using products made from CBD Isolate or Full Spectrum CBD. So, what exactly is the difference between the two?
