Lazarus Naturals makes effective products at incredible price points—the biggest problem with its High Potency CBD Tincture (unflavored) is the foul taste.

After a disappointing first experience with CBD, I gave it a second chance with a small 15ml bottle of Lazarus High Potency Wintergreen (isolate)—and it worked.
It was truly my introduction to the benefits of CBD. In my case, it helped me get to the gym more consistently by managing joint inflammation and soreness.
But that 15ml bottle went fast and within two weeks I picked up their High Potency in tropical flavor—it was another hit.
Then we started reading more about the entourage effect and branched out from isolate-based tinctures to full-spectrum.
We quickly became believers.
Following a few stints with other brands, we decided to go back to Lazarus and give their full-spectrum tincture a try.
Previously, we had purchased Lazarus products directly from a retail store. This time, we went straight to the source—the Lazarus Naturals website.
The website isn’t pretty. It looks dated and is missing the polish of many of its competitors.
The shop section of the site is also strangely organized and it took a bit of digging to find the product we were after.
Despite the strange structure of the online store, the checkout process was dead simple and exactly what you would expect from an e-commerce experience—with one exception.
Of the entire process, what we appreciated most was the after-sale communication.
Lazarus Naturals sends a confirmation email, an email verifying they’ve processed your order, and a shipping notification with your tracking number.
The unflavored Lazarus Naturals High Potency retains the full skunky character of the hemp plant and is by far the foulest tasting CBD we’ve tried.
Unlike other unflavored tinctures, the skunkiness is so strong that it completely masks the flavor profiles or any of the terpenes that might be present.
You will find no citrus notes or other pleasant terpene undertones in this product. Instead, you’ll find an aftertaste that is somewhat grassy and bitter.
While the Lazarus Naturals High Potency tincture contains fractured coconut oil and hemp oil, a common blend found in many products, the consistency is thinner than other products we’ve tried.
I’m not sure if it was the flavor or the consistency, but I found myself unintentionally swallowing portions of the tincture while trying to hold it under my tongue for thirty seconds—something I haven’t experienced with other products.
Ease of Use
There no surprises from an ease of use standpoint. The tincture bottle comes with a standard graduated dropper.
It’s easy to measure out by the drop and has clear measurement markers for doses by the milligram.
The dropper is long enough to draw the full 1ml amount, something that isn’t always the case.
Labeling clearly outlines the amount per dropper, a tremendous 50mg per 1ml, and suggests this as the standard serving size.
When it comes to full-spectrum tinctures, my ideal dose tends to be around 30mg and this was no different for the Lazarus High Potency tincture.
Value is where Lazarus Naturals shines.
The company uses ethanol to extract CBD from it hemp, which is a different method than most other companies use.
Ethanol has the advantage of being a less costly form of extraction and we assume that this is how Lazarus Naturals can achieve such a low price point.
When compared to similar products, Lazarus Naturals High Potency achieves an astoundingly thrifty $0.04 per milligram and is by far the best value we’ve found.
