Portland, Oregon-based Lazarus Naturals, a CBD company, has achieved B Corporation certification. As one of a handful of CBD companies with this certification, Lazarus Naturals has joined the global movement of 4,000 B Corps. across 150 industries and 74 countries with one unifying goal: to redefine success in business.
“Our mission is to provide high-quality, effective and affordable CBD for anyone who needs it, and this commitment has driven all our business decisions,” said CEO and Founder Sequoia Price-Lazarus. “Even though we are in the unregulated CBD industry, we continue to set a high standard for conscientious and ethical business practices that use business as a force for good.”
Certified B Corps. are for-profit companies that use the power of business to build an inclusive and sustainable economy. B Corps. are legally required to consider the impact of their decisions on customers, workers, communities and the environment. These criteria align with Lazarus Naturals’ socially conscious founding principles of CBD that’s made to work and made for all.
“Lazarus Naturals is an exciting addition to our B Corp. community, given the company’s pioneering role within the industry and its loyal customer base,” said Lindsey Wilson, manager for business development for B Lab U.S. and Canada.
To achieve B Corp. Certification, companies meet credible, comprehensive, transparent and independent standards. The rigorous assessment to obtain B Corp. certification measured impact areas such as governance, workers, community, environment and customers.
As Lazarus Naturals looks ahead, it will continue its commitment to make its CBD widely available to all, support its communities and grow responsibly. The company remains deeply committed to sustainability – even recently earning USDA Organic Certification.
Founded in 2014 with the belief that CBD should be accessible to everybody, Lazarus Naturals produces high-quality products that are effective, not expensive.
