Best Way to Take CBD (A Complete Guide)
The best way to take CBD is the way that best fits your needs. There are many different methods, but as long as you are buying quality CBD products, you can take it in many different forms and still get the same benefits. When deciding on which method is best for you, it mostly comes down to flavor, potency, and simplicity.
No matter your preference, Lazarus Naturals has a solution for you. We will guide you through all the best methods of taking CBD (capsules, tinctures, edibles, and topicals) so you can make an informed decision on what's right for you.
Benefits: Simple, standard measurements
If you like to keep things simple, capsules are your best option. All capsules have pre-measured servings of CBD, so you can don't have to worry about accurate serving sizes. This is the simplest method, but lacks the flavor and serving size of some other options.
Benefits: Quick, Multiple flavor options; Serving size flexibility
Another simple option is tinctures, which are oils that have activated CBD dissolved within it. Tinctures come in both flavored and unflavored varieties. Tinctures can be taken orally for easy uptake. Unlike capsules that are pre-measured, tinctures provide the flexibility to vary your serving size fluidly.
Edibles and Drinks
Benefits: Tasty, lots of options
We recommend our CBD coconut oil to make your own CBD edibles and drinks. You can easily incorporate it into food by treating it like butter or using it as a substitute for other fats. However, keep in mind that CBD can degrade at temperatures above 320 degrees Fahrenheit (160 degrees Celsius).

Benefits: No ingestion necessary, good for beginners
Using CBD topically offers an alternative for those who may not want to ingest it directly. Many people consider topicals as a good starting point compared to other CBD products because it is the least potent method.
If you want to try using a topical product, we offer high-quality massage oil and balms in various scents made with Full Spectrum Hemp Extract.
**Please Note: Our massage oils and balms are not intended for consumption and should only be applied topically.
Benefits: Easily control serving size, highest potency, versatile.
You may have heard of CBD RSO by its more common name, Rick Simpson Oil. The uniquely designed dispenser allows for easily controlled, consistent serving sizes. It is typically consumed sublingually and absorbed into your bloodstream.
However, since ours is made with fractionated coconut oil, you can mix it into food or make your own edibles. If you’re looking for a product with higher potency, our CBD RSO offers the highest concentration of our products and contains 100mg of CBD per ml.

CBD For Your Pet
We’ve gone over different ways that you can consume CBD, but what about your pets? If you didn’t already know, dogs and cats can also enjoy the same benefits from our products that you do. Tinctures are the best CBD products for animals because you can adjust the serving size to your pet's unique size and tolerance. We recommend either our Full Spectrum Calming CBD Pet Tincture or our Isolate-based Sensitive Pet CBD Tincture.
Add drops of the tincture to your pet's food or administer it orally. Here is what we recommend for your pets.
Less than 15lbs: 3 drops (1.5mg)
15-30lbs: 6 drops (3mg)
30-60lbs: 10 drops (5mg)
Over 60lbs: 20 drops (10mg)
