The Best Way to Take CBD
The best way to take CBD is the way that fits your needs best. There are many different methods to take CBD, 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 what 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 walk you through all the best methods of taking CBD (capsules, tinctures, edibles, lotions, and isolates) as well as their pros and cons.
Benefits: Simple, Standard measurements
Drawbacks: No flavor, You can’t customize dosages
If you like to keep things simple, capsules are your best option. All capsules have pre-measured doses of CBD so you can simply swallow and you are good to go. This is the simplest way to take CBD but lacks the flavor and dosage customizations of some other options.
Benefits: Quick, Multiple flavor options, Dosage flexibility
Drawbacks: Can sometimes be hard to measure dosage
Another simple option is CBD-infused tinctures. Put simply, a CBD Tincture is an oil with activated CBD dissolved within it. Tinctures come in both flavored and unflavored varieties. Tinctures are usually taken sublingually. Rather than ingesting the tincture directly, you use a dropper to apply the CBD-infused tincture beneath your tongue where it is absorbed into your bloodstream. For this reason, the same amount of CBD will likely have a stronger effect when taken sublingually rather than ingested. Unlike capsules which are premeasured, tinctures give you the flexibility to vary your dosages fluidly.
CBD Edibles & Drinks
Benefits: Tasty, Lots of options
Drawbacks: Can take more time to prepare
If you are really looking to enjoy your CBD experience, try working it into your diet.We recommend our CBD coconut oil or CBD tinctures if you are looking to make your own CBD edibles and drinks. Common drinks people like to mix CBD into are coffee, tea, and hot cocoa. If you have extra time, feel free to experiment with more complicated recipes. Generally speaking, you can incorporate CBD coconut oil into food by treating it like butter. However, keep in mind that CBD can degrade at temperatures above 320 degrees Fahrenheit (160 degrees Celsius).
Topical CBD Lotions
Benefits: No ingestion necessary, Good for beginners
Drawbacks: Least potent method
Using CBD lotions offers an alternative for those who may not want to ingest CBD directly. Many people consider CBD lotions as a good starting point compared to other CBD products because it is the least potent intake method. Additionally, hemp products feature a wealth of vitamins that are beneficial to the skin. If you want to try a CBD topical that you can also use to make CBD edibles, you should check out our CBD coconut oil.
Benefits: Allows you to make your own CBD products, Can be used for dabbing
Drawbacks: Requires time and/or equipment to be properly utilized
CBD isolate is exactly what it sounds like, concentrated CBD extract. Many people use CBD isolate to make their own CBD products at home, such as lotions and tinctures. But if you’re looking for something completely different, you may want to try dabbing CBD isolates. If you are unfamiliar with dabbing, it is the process of instantly vaporizing a substance for inhalation using a “dab rig”. For this purpose, we offer CBD isolates infused with terpenes for extra flavor. However, dab rigs can cost hundreds of dollars so if this is not something you are seriously interested in, you may want to pass.
