Designed by nature. Perfected by science.

Lazarus Naturals was founded on the belief that quality CBD products should be accessible to those who need them most. Our employee-owned company proudly stands by the potential of our product and will continue to follow our mission via community outreach and assistance programs, earnestly providing 60% discounts to veterans, individuals on long-term disability and for low-income households.

CBD promotes restful sleep, supports healthy cartilage and joint function, relieves occasional nausea, enhances relaxation, and has other beneficial effects.





Sequoia Price-Lazarus – CEO, Founder

Sequoia was inspired to found Lazarus Naturals after talking with a friend’s mother who had cancer and learning how expensive CBD can be. He founded Lazarus Naturals in 2014 with the mission of making high-quality CBD products that are accessible to anyone, regardless of financial circumstance. Sequoia spearheaded the Assistance Program at Lazarus Naturals, which offers lifetime 60% discounts to veterans, individuals on long-term disability and low-income households. The most fulfilling part of his job is hearing from customers about the impact CBD products have made on their lives.  When he isn’t working, Sequoia enjoys backpacking, baking, basketball, skiing, spending time with his family and exploring the outdoors.
