CBD Tinctures: Tips and Uses

Recently, cannabidiol (CBD) products have become more and more available and accepted as cannabis-based therapeutic products. CBD has shown great promise in treating many conditions but many are intimidated when it comes to how to implement CBD products into their existing routines. 

What Are CBD Tinctures?

As we’ve discussed in our previous post, there are multiple ways to apply CBD. One of the most popular being in the form of CBD tinctures. CBD tinctures are made by blending high-quality hemp-derived CBD oil with other nutritious oils.

It is important to note that CBD oil and CBD tinctures are two different things. CBD oil is a pure extract from the hemp plant, which is not diluted. CBD tinctures, however, combine the pure CBD oil extra with another oil. By adding another oil, CBD tinctures can be infused with natural flavoring, which makes them more appealing to CBD beginners. 

However, this doesn’t mean that CBD tinctures are only good for beginners -- many long-time CBD users are drawn to CBD tinctures because of their vast versatility and variety of ways to ingest. 

How Much Should You Use? 

Ultimately everybody is different, and CBD dosage can vary from person to person. You should search for the perfect dosage for yourself, and keep in mind that in general it is recommended to start with a very low dose, to see how your body reacts. Some other factors to consider are:

CBD Concentration - Concentration refers to the strength of the CBD in a product, which is commonly measured in milligrams. 

Bodyweight - Just as we said everybody is different, so is every body. You will want to be mindful of the recommended dosage printed on the bottle. If needed to better feel the effects, you can always increase the dose. 

Tolerance - It is possible that users can develop a tolerance to a product over time, which means that the results may be reduced. Luckily, the dosage is ultimately a personal preference, so you can adjust your dose accordingly to achieve the results you wish. 

Let It Absorb

Additionally, you should note that your body may take longer than you expect to begin to feel the effects of a CBD tincture, depending on how long it takes it to absorb into your body. Unlike typical CBD tinctures that have an oil base, A88CBD Tincture features a unique water-soluble base called C10™ which allows for rapid onset. Instead of feeling the effects within and 30mins to an hour, you’ll feel the effects of A88CB™ tincture within 10 minutes!

How To Use CBD Tinctures

CBD tinctures are extremely easy to use. Most of them come in a bottle with a built-in dropper that allows for quick, easy consumption. 

Take note of the recommended dosage on the bottle -- place the dropper under your tongue and disperse the product. Hold the product under your tongue for 30-60 seconds, then swallow. If you would like, you can also add your CBD tincture to food or drinks if you prefer.

Again, CBD tinctures are truly customizable. Find what works for you, and reap the benefits!
