What Is CBD Tincture?
CBD stands for cannabidiol – a chemical compound from the Cannabis plant and tinctures are the medicines made by dissolving this compound. CBD tincture is an herbal tincture made by extracting compounds from the cannabis plant. A mixture of water and alcohol is used for compound extraction.
There is a great difference between CBD tincture and CBD oil. Compared to CBD oil, the tinctures contain a low portion of the CBD. The bioavailability of tinctures is very high due to the presence of alcohol. By acting as a preservative, alcohol enhances the life of the CBD. The absorption rate is also faster due to alcohol.
Dr. Tieraona Low Dog-internationally recognized nutritionist said that:
“Tinctures are absorbed easily when taken under the tongue. They are easy to use, have a long shelf life. The dose can be adjusted by changing the drop intake”.
Ingredients of CBD Tincture:
As we know that the ratio CBD in tincture is less than oil because other ingredients are added in a tincture for flavor enhancement. Such as the following:
- Vitamins (B12, D, C, etc.)
- Essential oils such as basil, lavender, etc.
However, the Super Natural Farms CBD Tincture is comprised of just the finest ingredients for maximum benefits, which is a Full-Spectrum Hemp Extract, 100% Organic Food Grade Ethynol (alcohol), and Organic MCT Oil.
Difference between Oil and Tincture:
Base: CBD oil has cannabidiol as an oil base. But CBD tincture has an alcohol base. Both have therapeutic properties and are used to relieve anxiety, stress, and inflammation.
Method of Ingestion: Vape is a method often used to ingest CBD Oil. Tinctures are ingested by mixing in food due to the alcohol base or taken directly under the tongue – which is what we suggest.
Shelf Life: Tinctures have a long shelf life as compared to pure CBD oil due to the preserving nature of alcohol. CBD oil, when expired, turns foggy or cloudy; its shelf-life can be increased by avoiding direct sunlight.
How to take CBD Tinctures?
It is best to take CBD tincture after a heavy meal or snack for fast absorption. Place one dropper of the tincture under the tongue and then swallow it after one minute. Eluding digestive system CBD will absorb in the mouth directly. The sublingual method gives the user immediate and long-lasting relief.
