CBD has been gaining momentum because of the wide range of health benefits it offers. CBD is also versatile in that it can be consumed in many different ways, from tinctures to edibles. CBD tinctures are the most popular form of consumption due to their potency and ease of use. Let’s dive into what CBD tinctures are and how they work, so that you can get a better understanding if it’s right for you.
What is CBD?
The CBD sold online and in stores comes from hemp, a cousin of the marijuana plant. It’s found in the flowers or “buds” as well as other parts of the plant. Unlike its famous cousin delta 9, CBD does not get you high, but does offer numerous anti-inflammatory benefits.
What are “Tinctures”?
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. They are one of the most popular methods of taking CBD by those that use CBD regularly.
How Do You Take CBD Tinctures?
CDT Tinctures are taken by putting a few drops under the tongue. It is best to keep the tincture under your tongue for 90 seconds to two minutes for maximum effect. When you swallow it right away, the CBD goes through your digestive tract, making it take longer to have an effect. Keeping it under your tongue allows the substance to be absorbed by the blood vessels in your mouth and in turn, working faster than just straight ingesting it. This method takes usually in 15 minutes to an hour to kick in and can last 6 to 8 hours.
What are CDB Tinctures Good For?
People have used CBD tinctures for a variety of health conditions, including pain relief, anxiety, insomnia, and general wellbeing. There is also good scientific evidence that CBD is a good agent in calming seizers from conditions like epilepsy.
If you are looking for faster relief, tinctures may be the way to go for you. Because you are generally skipping the digestive track unlike edibles like gummies, tinctures are fast acting. Fact: vaping is the only delivery system that is faster than tinctures. However, the effects from vaping CBD don’t last as long (usually only two to three hours. Plus, vaping in many cases holds risks in unknown substances in the oil.
Are CDB Tinctures Safe?
