Lazarus Naturals Company Overview
If you are interested in an unbiased Lazarus Naturals review then you have come to the right place. Lazarus Naturals was founded by Sequoia Price-Lazarus. He is now the CEO of the company as well. Mr. Price-Lazarus started the company in 2014 with one main goal in mind. He wanted to make high-quality CBD accessible to people regardless of their economic situation and circumstances.
This is still the motto that Lazarus Naturals follows today and is what the company is well-known for. Through their assistance program at Lazarus Naturals, they offer an incredible 60% discount to veterans, individuals on long-term disability, and qualifying low-income households. And these are not one-time discounts. This is a lifetime discount.
Lazarus Naturals is an employee-owned company. It’s made up of employees who believe in their mission to provide life-changing CBD products to all. They take pride in this mission and it is evident by looking through their site.
Year established: 2014
Company owned by: Lazarus Naturals is employee owned
Products available: Tinctures, capsules, isolate, coconut oil, pet products, RSO, topicals
Expected price range: It all depends. You can spend as little as $12 on some CBD lotion or you can spend upwards of $120 on a large bottle of their full-spectrum CBD oil. And, of course, there is everything in between. The nice thing is that they have a wide variety of CBD products available to fit all budgets.
What Makes Lazarus Naturals Stand Out?
Lazarus Naturals was founded on the principle that high-quality CBD products should be made available to those who need it most. This includes those folks that could not normally afford to buy CBD products. That’s why the company was founded and that is how they continue to operate to this day. This goal and this mission are what sets Lazarus Naturals apart from so many other CBD companies. It gives you the feeling that they are not in it just for the money, but that they actually want to help people.
The Lazarus Naturals Assistance Programs are part of what has made the company so well-known in the industry. They are specifically aiming to help three different groups of people. This includes US military veterans, long-term disabled, and low-income.
You will need to show documentation for each of these situations to apply to your orders. Keep in mind that the 60% discount is applied to full-price order amounts. There is also a $400 limit on monthly orders for the discount to apply. The $400 limit monthly amount is after the 60% discount has been applied so that is a very substantial amount. You can find more information about their assistance programs on their site.
Lazarus Naturals does own their own hemp farm that is located in Central Oregon. As of 2019, this farm is where they source approximately 70% of their hemp from. They make all of their full-spectrum products, along with the majority of their isolate, from the hemp grown on their own farm.
The remaining hemp also comes from trusted farm sources in Oregon. These third-party hemp farms adhere to a stringent certification process laid out by the Oregon Department of Agriculture.
All of the hemp used in Lazarus Naturals CBD products is also tested for pesticides and any heavy metals. This ensures the highest quality and safety standards for their customers. They also send final CBD products out for third-party lab testing to ensure the best product possible. You can find these testing results right on their website for easy viewing.
Our Experience With Lazarus Naturals Products
High Potency Full Spectrum CBD Tincture
We tried 3 different variations of Lazarus Naturals CBD tinctures. All three of these were natural unflavored tinctures. The formula that we found to be the most effective for us was the high potency full spectrum CBD tincture. Their high potency formula contains 50mg of CBD per 1ml of the tincture. There is an easy to read dropper so you can measure exactly how much of the tincture you are using.
This high potency formula is available in 750, 3000, and 6000mg bottles. These each contain different total amounts of CBD but they are all the same strength. This means that regardless of which bottle you have, there is still 50mg of CBD for every 1ml.
We found that we preferred the high potency formula. The concentration of 50mg of CBD per ml is potent enough for most users and if you find that you need more you can just take another dropper full.
Along with that we also prefer the full-spectrum formula. Because the full spectrum formula contains other cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids from the hemp plant we find it provides us an entourage effect as they all work together. This is something that you simply cannot get from products that are not full-spectrum products. On the other hand, it also does not mean that other products are not effective. Other CBD formulas are effective as well.
The Classic flavor has a natural, earthy, hemp flavor as you would expect. We find that some users do not like this taste but we actually find it soothing. Maybe it is an acquired taste for some people. If the natural flavor is not something that you like there are other flavors that are sure to please you.
Standard Potency Full Spectrum CBD Tincture
The standard potency full-spectrum formula contains 20mg of CBD per 1ml of the tincture. This is less than half of the higher strength but this is where most CBD customers should probably start with.
We tried the standard potency formula but we found that we needed to use almost 3 times the amount when compared to the high potency formula to achieve similar results. For us, it just would not make sense to choose the standard potency formula as we are more accustomed to CBD.
If you are a new CBD user or are accustomed to lower doses this would be a fantastic option. The standard potency full spectrum formula only appears to be available in the classic, natural flavored option. That’s all we were able to find on their site at the time of this writing.
To achieve the results we are accustomed to we had to take 3ml of the standard potency formula. We ingested it by taking a 1ml drop and holding it under our tongue for approximately 30 seconds. We did this consecutively for each of the 3 drops and experienced the full effects after approximately 75 minutes.
Flavorless High Potency CBD Isolate Tincture
Many people prefer to use a CBD isolate as opposed to a full-spectrum CBD product. The flavorless high potency isolate tincture has a very plain taste. Some people will like this and others will prefer something different. Our preference would be to have some flavor, even if it is natural.
Lazarus Naturals’ high potency isolate tincture contains 50mg of CBD per 1ml of tincture just like their other high potency formulas of full-spectrum CBD products.
Because it is a CBD isolate you do not have to worry about THC because there is no THC in this product. There are also no other cannabinoids, terpenes, or flavonoids found in this formula so you will not experience any entourage effect from these natural compounds working together.
Our experience with the CBD isolate tincture was very good. We ingested it the same way as with the full spectrum products by holding it under our tongue for a good 30 seconds. We found the CBD isolate tincture to take effect a little bit quicker than the full spectrum formula. In our experience, we still would prefer the full-spectrum formula as compared to the CBD isolate formula. Overall, we found the full spectrum formula to provide better and longer-lasting results compared to the isolate.
50mg Full Spectrum CBD Capsules
Over time we have become very fond of taking CBD in capsule form. We have found it to be a very easy and convenient way to get our daily doses of CBD. With Lazarus Naturals, it can also be a cost-effective method as well.
Admittedly, the effects of CBD capsules do not quite match the results from a CBD oil in most cases. Capsules take a little bit longer and the effects are not quite as powerful in our experience. One thing we have found is that the capsules seem to have a longer-lasting effect for us, even though it is not as intense.
The fact that CBD capsules are still effective and seem to linger longer, coupled with their ease and convenience, makes them a very appealing choice for us.
