I can not recommend this highly enough, as well as Lazarus Naturals in general. This is theee best value on cbd I’ve seen, and it’s the most healthy because of the extraction process and the oils it’s diluted with. I would give 100 stars if I could. Thank you, Lazarus Naturals!!! And thank you for helping people with disabilities and low income such as myself. I am now a forever-loyal-customer!

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).
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:
Some people don’t mind, or even enjoy the natural taste of hemp oil tinctures. For those who are bothered by the distinctive herbal taste of hemp extract, a flavored CBD oil tincture may be better. We’ve selected a variety of both flavored and unflavored CBD oil tinctures in this roundup, and many of the brands selected offer multiple options. If you still can’t stand the flavor of CBD tincture, consider another option like CBD gummies or capsules. Topical CBD is another popular choice, especially if you’re treating body aches or certain skin problems.
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.

So, the next question is typically: DO I NEED ALL THESE OTHER CANNABINOIDS TO HELP MY CANCER (or epilepsy, diabetes, etc)? The answer is “maybe”. Some people find great results from cannabidiol or CBD alone. But, more people typically report better results when taking a full spectrum of cannabinoids (sometimes this includes THC, but often times, not). So, if you’re new to CBD and not sure what direction to go, these reports from people would generally indicate its best to try a full spectrum blend to give you the greatest chance of success. While having an extract that includes specifically the cannabinoid THC could also increase your chance for success, you have to ask yourself if you want to be ‘high’ all day when taking CBD. And, you have to consider whether CBD extracted from marijuana is legal where you are. Because of these two questions, CBD as part of a full spectrum of cannabinoid extracted from hemp, is often times the desired choice.
Cannabidiol is a plant compound extracted from cannabis (either marijuana or hemp) that is being reported by many to have positive effects on many conditions which have been requiring pharmaceutical solutions, such as cancer, diabetes, epilepsy, anxiety, TMJ, restless leg syndrome and so much more. CBD extracts from marijuana typically have THC to some extent, thus causing some degree of ‘high’ and may or may not be legal where you live. CBD extracts from hemp can either by CBD (singluarly) or in full spectrum cannabinoid blends. Many people find relief with CBD in singular fashion, but best results are typically reported after taking CBD in full spectrum extracts.
Some companies, especially those who sell their products at a ridiculously low price, may use cheap methods when extracting CBD oil. This requires toxic solvents that are dangerous to our health such as propane, hexane, pentane and butane. Two of these are commonly used in gas stoves and ranges, such as propane and butane, and all of them are hydrocarbon gases found in petroleum.
When CBD is referred to as full spectrum or whole plant CBD, it means that the CBD contains all other cannabinoids found in the marijuana plant including CBN (Cannabinol), CBG (Cannabigerol), and THCV (Tetrahydrocannabivarin), to name a few. And yes, along with these cannabinoids, Full Spectrum CBD also contains trace amounts of THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol), but in very low concentrations (up to .3%), resulting in very minimal psychoactive stimulation.
