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.

In February, 2019 NBC News reported on potentially hazardous lead levels in Lazarus Naturals products. Lazarus Naturals responded with an official statement after speaking to NBC about their findings. Apparently, NBC had purchased the Lazarus Naturals products on Groupon, a site that Lazarus Naturals has never collaborated with. The products in question also did not contain any batch numbers matching those that Lazarus Naturals apply to their products. They mentioned in their statement that they had been working to remove counterfeit Lazarus Naturals products from unapproved marketplaces. They also noted that the products that NBC had purchased from their official website had passed a full panel of testing.
They are very transparent about their processes and third-party lab test results. They provide batch numbers with the corresponding lab test results on every product page so that customers can see the results for the specific batch of product they purchased. Every one of their products is marked with a batch number on the label. A QR code on every label provides quick access to more information about your product.
Despite CO₂ extraction being a more popular extraction method, Lazarus Naturals use kosher ethanol in their extraction process, a cheaper process that,when not performed perfectly, leaves some traces of solvent in your CBD extract. This might put some people off, considering that this method often produces CBD extract that is not as clean. However, Lazarus Naturals publishes their test results almost religiously, and are very transparent about the results. Residual solvent testing detects the presence of any residual solvents and impurities that would make the extract dangerous for consumption. Since Lazarus Naturals goes to great lengths to clean their extract of all trace amounts of solvents, we cannot fault them for using this extraction method. They seem to be one of the few companies that are using this method successfully to produce clean CBD. Because ethanol-extraction is usually cheaper, they are also able to offer their products at a very reasonable price point.

To try a selection of products at a reasonable cost, they offer sample packs, like the one we purchased for the purpose of this review. They offer a Full Spectrum Standard Potency Sample Pack containing a balm, capsules and tincture with 15mg CBD per ml, as well as a Full Spectrum High Potency Sample Pack where the capsules and tincture both contain 50mg CBD per ml. For beginners, we suggest the Standard Potency Pack.
If you want to support a “mom & pop” style American business, Lazarus Naturals should be high on the list. Although not literally owned by a mom and pop, the Seattle-based company is entirely employee-owned and they are very transparent about their products and processes. The founder, Sequoia Price-Lazarus, started the company in 2014 with a mission to provide high-quality CBD that is both accessible and affordable for all. He personally launched the Assistance Program which offers a lifetime 60% discount to veterans; those on long-term disability; and to low-income households. This mission is prominent within their company and seems to get them a lot of attention. Judging by their customer reviews where buyers thank them repeatedly for this program, they definitely found their foothold in this market. You can read more about the team on their website, where they introduce a few of their c-level executives and explain their individual responsibilities on the About Us page.
Lazarus Naturals has a great online reputation, and there is quite a bit of information and positive feedback about the company and their products on online forums. They offer a nice selection of products ranging from standard to high potency CBD, so that both first- and long-time users of CBD will find something that suits their fancy. Take your pick from their selection of tinctures, topicals, capsules, coconut oil, RSO (better known as Rick Simpson Oil), isolates and even pet products. Lazarus Naturals source all their hemp from Oregon, a location that has been identified as near perfect for growing hemp. It is the third largest hemp-growing region in the United States, since it has the mild climate and slightly humid atmosphere that hemp plants thrive on.
