Why CBD Tinctures?
CBD tinctures are a popular option for many people because they can take
them orally. This means that you don’t have to worry about inhalation or
other inconvenient/messy/unhealthy intake methods. Tinctures can also be
a very potent form of CBD, so if you’re looking for something strong but
still easy to take on the go, these are a great choice! This article
will discuss what a tincture is, the benefits of a tincture over other
delivery methods, who might benefit from taking a CBD tincture, and
where to find CBD tinctures.
What Is A CBD Tincture?
CBD tinctures are simply raw CBD oil distilled directly from the plant
and mixed into a carrier oil. Nerd alert: typically, in the pharmacy
space, tinctures were alcohol-based, but in the cannabis world, they are
usually oil-based. You can find alcohol-based tinctures occasionally,
though, because alcohol helps the CBD move through membranes. This
difference makes it an excellent choice for people with alcohol
addiction or sensitivities.
What Are The Benefits of CBD Tinctures?
Tinctures are more bioavailable than other delivery forms (except vaping
and smoking, but those forms don’t last long, and they are horrible for
your lungs). The distribution is more systemic than topicals, and
tinctures avoid the first-pass effect, meaning they bypass the liver.
They are also more bioavailable than gummies—you get a higher
percentage of the medication in your bloodstream and save some money, too!
Tinctures are longer-lasting than inhaled products but not as
long-lasting as edibles, so they are better if you want something in the
Tinctures can be discreet. You can get them in small bottles and
syringes, so they’re easy enough for anyone who needs them on the go.
They also offer precise doses if the company you order from is clear
about the amount of CBD in each or serving.
Who Might Benefit From Taking A CBD Tincture?
Primarily, people trying to avoid smoking or vaping and want fast relief
could benefit from CBD tinctures. Also, many people find the taste of
CBD objectionable, so tinctures can be a way to avoid that. Many of them
come in delicious flavors, which makes them more pleasant to use.
Where To Find CBD Tinctures?
Some people go to a dispensary for their CBD, but most prefer ordering
online–especially if your state does not yet have dispensaries or only
has medical marijuana. But you must research before buying from any site
because there are many scams out there trying to take advantage of you!
Always ask for a certificate of analysis (COA) so that you know exactly
what you’re putting in your mouth. If the company doesn’t want to give
you one, there’s a reason–don’t walk away, run!
