About Us

Effective. Not expensive.

Since the beginning, we have dedicated ourselves to making effective, high quality CBD that is affordable. Lazarus Naturals was founded on the belief that CBD has a positive impact on our quality of life, and should be available to everyone regardless of their circumstances. We have strived to maintain an affordable price point and commitment to accessibility with our Assistance Program—which provides a 60% discount to veterans, individuals on long term disability, active military personnel, and low-income households.

Nothing to hide

There's no secret to our approach. From the organic hemp we farm, to our ever-growing family of products, we focus on consistency and sustainability. We’re always working on improving our processes and products to make the most effective and healthy products at a reasonable price.

Made to work. Made for all.

Sequoia Price-Lazarus, CEO & Founder

In 2014, Sequoia Price-Lazarus and a small but dedicated team—including Evan Skandalis (VP of Farm Operations), Dylan Summers (VP of Government Affairs) and Ian Tudor (Crystallization Specialist)—set out to try making affordable healthcare and natural medicine more accessible to all by crafting CBD products that were effective and affordable, so everyone could experience its benefits. To ensure quality, potency and consistency, they imagined a “farm-to-front-door” model of transparency—where the company handled each step of the process. We started out selling handcrafted products at local farmers markets, and have now become an established leader in the industry.

Giving back

Assistance Program

The Lazarus Naturals Assistance Program is at the heart of who we are as a company. We are here for all who rely on the benefits of CBD daily—striving to ensure it isn’t cost prohibitive. We firmly believe that everyone should have access to this natural medicine regardless of financial circumstances. To accomplish this, we extend up to 60% off products for veterans, individuals on long term disability, and those living below the poverty line.

Serving our communities

At Lazarus Naturals, we prioritize purpose over profits—partnering with non-profit organizations who help communities in need while working to create systemic change. In 2020 we committed to donating $100,000 every year moving forward to social justice causes—including the ACLU Foundation of Oregon, the NAACP, and Dig Deep’s Navajo Water Project.

Being transparent

From our farming practices and production process, to how our products are packaged, we are always seeking environmentally and socially responsible ways of doing business. For example, each order is packed in our facility with materials made from post-consumer waste. Our current goal is to be carbon neutral by 2030—with the long term goal of fully eliminating all non-biodegradable waste and carbon emissions by 2040.

Our mission has always been to make products that improve people’s lives as well as the world around us by operating in a fair, equitable and environmentally sustainable manner. Our efforts to this end have led to us receiving USDA Organic, Leaping Bunny, and B Corp certifications. Lazarus Naturals vows to use business as a force for good, and never put profits over purpose. It's not about being the best in the world—but about doing what's best for the world.

"Our focus is simply trying to do the right thing for our community, our customers, and our planet. Fortunately, our authenticity has resonated with many people. Providing customers with high quality products and doing things right (from farming practices, to how we treat our people and environment) creates our success.

Along the way, I’ve found it difficult to communicate all that one’s doing to run a business ethically and morally. Customers want to know things are being done in an upstanding way that's good for the earth. External validation of our practices and processes ensures customers and employees that we are living up to our values. Certifications help consumers easily discern which companies are committed to doing things right, and which only talk about it."

From our farm to your door

We do it all—from our farm to your front door (aside from the delivery truck). That’s how we can consistently deliver effective products of the highest quality at a lower cost. This is our process:

A hand holding a hemp seedling

Growing organic hemp

Farming along the 45th parallel in Central Oregon is an ideal growing climate for our Certified Organic hemp.

Tractor

Harvesting hemp

We let our hemp air-dry in the field and then harvest the buds with our combine.

Microscope

Testing the hemp

Plant material from each section of our farmland is rigorously tested for heavy metals, pesticides and level of potency.

Extraction of compounds from hemp into a conical flask

Extracting the biomass

Cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids are extracted from hemp with cryogenic ethanol and filtered to remove any impurities.

Mortar and pestle

Formulating with effective ingredients

All of our essential oils, herbal supplements, and organic ingredients are carefully chosen to be functional, effective and sustainable.
