CBD Gummies vs Tinctures

By Susan’s Own

CBD has beneficial properties and can help with things like pain, inflammation, sleep, mood, and many other things. Because CBD can help in so many ways and comes in several different forms to take or use, it can be a bit hard to figure out which is right for you. One way that may work for you is by ingesting the CBD. With Ingesting CBD, you have a quicker, longer lasting feel than say, smoking CBD flower. Two popular ways to ingest CBD are tinctures and gummies. The reason for this how quickly you can feel its effects. We are going to dive into CBD gummies vs tinctures and help you figure out which one might be right for you.

What is a CDB Tincture?

Tinctures are the result of soaking herbs in a liquid, are usually stored in a glass bottle with a dropper. A CBD tincture can be made by steeping hemp in a plant-based oil, alcohol, or other substances. The results are CBD tinctures that are a highly concentrated form of CBD. You can find out more in our post What is a CBD Tincture and How Does it Work

Why Would One Choose the CBD Tincture?

The main benefit of a CBD Tincture over something like gummies, it the ability to feel the effects faster. You put a few drops under your tongue and leave it there for about 90 seconds to 2 minutes. Keeping it under your tongue allows the substance to be absorbed by the blood vessels in your mouth. Skipping the digestive track and going more directly into the blood stream allows the CBD to act faster than if you ingest it, like taking a gummy or other edible. It usually takes only 15 min to an hour to fully kick in.

What Are CBD Gummies?

With CBD Gummies, the cannabidiol found in live resin from mature hemp plants is turned into an oily liquid that is infused into a gummy.

Why Would One Choose the CBD Gummies?

Some people find gummies are a more approachable and tasty way to enjoy the use of CBD. Gummies are well suited for people who want to experiment with CBD as a way to calm down, whether from anxiety or just as a sleep aid. With CBD gummies, you also know the exact dosage you are taking. It can be harder to gauge the dosage on tinctures. Gummies are digested by the body for the CBD to be delivered to the bloodstream, taking it longer to activate than tinctures. Yet for some, that is why gummies are more approachable, because the effect doesn’t hit all at one time.

Which One is Right for You?

Both ways have their appeals. Tinctures are faster acting, where you know exactly what you are getting in each dose with gummies. Plus, gummies may be more approachable to you if you are just starting out. Both are great ways to improve your health and wellness routine. Either way you want to start out, Susan’s Own CDB has a tasty line of full spectrum CBD gummies and CBD tinctures ready for you try.
