CBD Oil tinctures are one of our most popular products here at Healthy Market and make up one of the largest product categories industry-wide. But are CBD tinctures for you? Let’s take a look at what CBD oil tinctures really are and why you might consider selecting one.
What’s A CBD Tincture, Anyway?
For those of us who didn’t major in pharmacology, the simple answer is that a tincture is a liquid capture of the extract of a plant. In the full spectrum hemp CBD extraction process, hemp flowers are mixed with naturally occurring carbon dioxide and then pressurized and heated for a long period of time. When the hemp oil is extracted, the vessel is depressurized and the carbon dioxide is released (as a gas) leaving only the CBD-infused hemp extract. Since these liquids are highly concentrated, you’ll see that at Healthy Market our tinctures come in a small bottle with a built-in dropper so you can measure and use proper amounts.
Full Spectrum Hemp And CBD Isolates.
Now that you know what they are, it’s important to note that not all CBD tinctures are the same. Some offer CBD in a pure or ‘isolate’ form that contains only the compound Cannabidiol. In contrast, Full Spectrum Healthy Market tinctures include a balance of compounds from the entire hemp plant, which include CBD plus other beneficial phytocannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids such as cannabidivarin (CBDV), cannabigerol (CBG) and cannabinol (CBN). Also, depending on the CBD tincture you choose, your dose may include healthy and beneficial all-natural ingredients, such as omega-3 fatty acids, cannabis sativa (hemp) seed oil, and cannabis sativa (hemp) flower/leaf extract.
How Tinctures Are Used.
It’s most common to take CBD oil orally. Tinctures make it easy to measure out exactly how much CBD you get and since the product comes in liquid form, you can easily place your specific measurement of oil under your tongue for absorption. CBD tincture effects can be felt more quickly when you use this technique. By holding the substance under your tongue, the CBD can enter into your bloodstream faster so you can rapidly begin to feel the effects.
Here’s how to do it: First, measure out the amount of oil you want using the bottle and built-in dropper. Next, squeeze the oil from the dropper under your tongue. Healthy Market CBD oil tinctures come in tasty mint and peppermint flavors that provide a cooling and calming sensation. After about 30 seconds, you can swallow any remaining liquid.
If you don’t want to place the oil directly into your mouth, you can also add it to food or beverages. Again, measure out the exact amount of oil you want to ingest using the dropper. Then, squeeze it directly onto your food or into your beverage. You’ll find it easier to add your CBD tincture to foods that are soft solids or liquids such as pastas, soups and beverages.
Tinctures can also be used topically. Topical treatment can be soothing and effective as our CBD oil tinctures are specifically designed to calm nerves on contact and to moisturize skin.
You can use the dropper to distribute the oil directly on your affected skin or where you feel discomfort. Rub the oil in for the best and most immediate effects. You can also squeeze the contents of your dropper into the palm of your hand and add a few drops of your favorite lotion. Mix the two together using your fingers and apply the mixture to the specific area where you want to feel the positive effects of the oil.
