We purchased this CBD product and tested it at independent testing facilities to measure levels of CBD, THC, and other cannabinoids and compare the results to the manufacturer's claims. Here are the results. (Learn more about our review process.)
The unadulterated test results on this page come directly from these certificates of analysis from two independent labs, which we pay directly. These are two independent lab tests of one product, at one point in time. We do not guarantee that all products or labs will produce the same results. Lab results may differ based on the different methodologies of testing used by each lab or inconsistencies in the product. Added ingredients may affect lab results. Volume of creams and edibles may change due to factors such as temperature, and this may impact lab results. Learn more about our review process.
Lazarus Naturals claims to have 50 mg of CBD per 1 mL serving. We found that each 1 mL serving contains 52 mg to 57 mg of CBD.
Lazarus Naturals claims this is from CBD isolate, which should only contain CBD, CBDV, and NO THC or other cannabinoids.
Our lab tests suggest that this oil is from CBD isolate. Lab A found trace levels of THC below the reporting levels for most labs, including Lab B. We consider this a THC free product because the trace levels are below most detection levels.
The independent labs found that Lazarus Natural’s contained 4% to 14% more CBD than their label suggested.
You can take this product sublingually or mix with a food or drink.
I've changed my opinion since I originally published this article and video. I thought that the 0.04 mg of THC might be problematic. However, it appears these trace amounts of THC are expected in these high potency formulas now that I've tested multiple high strength isolates. Some labs would consider CBD products THC-free with ten times this amount (or 0.40 mg of THC). 0.04 mg of THC is virtually nothing and I'll need to update my video.
Lazarus Naturals is on a mission to make CBD affordable. They also give steep discounts to veterans, disabled, and low-income peeps. They’re a favorite on Reddit and the best deal that my labs have come across. Here’s my review of Lazarus Naturals' full-spectrum CBD, plus a company review.
It's 2 cents per milligram of CBD. Some CBD oils go for 22 cents per milligram. Lazarus is the cheapest CBD that I have verified.
The Blood Orange flavor is light and refreshing. There's zero hemp taste. The oil viscosity is light and that's a good thing. It tastes as good as blood-orange sparkling water.
50 mg per milliliter is one of the most potent doses you'll see on the consumer market. You may want to start with half or a quarter dose if you’re new to CBD. It's just CBD, so you won't need to worry about the side effects of THC. The 0.04 mg of THC found by lab A should have zero effects. It's less THC than what is found in many hemp seed oils and below the detection level of Lab B, which is a DEA certified laboratory. I certainly don’t like to see THC in my CBD isolates, but there is no research to suggest that this low level of THC will cause you to fail a drug test. Also, I can't claim that this product has trace amounts of THC because a second lab did not confirm it, and most labs consider this a THC-free product. (update: Lazarus Naturals provided a lab report showing the product I received contained trace levels of THC.) Here’s more info on CBD products and drug testing.
*It's common to see CBD doses at 5 mg, 15 mg, 25 mg, and 50 mg for consumer products. Researchers use much larger doses (25 mg to 1500 mg of CBD). CBD dosing is highly individualized.
The liquid is clear, light, and refreshing. The bottle is high quality and has a labeled dropper so that you can easily change your dose. The label doesn't look fancy, but that's not why you're buying Lazarus Naturals.
It's just CBD. The blood orange flavor is excellent, it's potent, the liquid is light and refreshing, and it might be the best deal on CBD. I wouldn't say I like that lab A found trace levels of THC. However, the THC level is considered non-detectable by most labs and should have zero impact. I also couldn't confirm the THC with a second lab. This product is on my personal favorites list, but keep in mind that I am a cheap ass.
Lazarus Naturals offers CBD tinctures, capsules, isolates, coconut oil, pet products, RSO, and topicals.
