CBD Tinctures 101

As the article What Is Tincture and How Does It Work With CBDs? explains, CBD (cannabidiol) is an excellent method for getting all the benefits of the marijuana plant without the additional effects of other cannabinoids, such as the “high” people feel when consuming THC (tetrahydrocannabinol).

Moreover, using a tincture is one of the best options because of its efficiency to be digested and absorbed by the body, and its convenience for using it without the hustle. Users of this product report substantial relief of stress and pain without experimenting “lethargy, dizziness, memory loss, and trouble focusing.”  

However, the current lack of regulations in the industry makes it easier for some producers to falsely claim good quality; this is the reason why we encourage consumers to be cautious about their choices within this market. Among all the novelty and curiosity arising, this article proceeds to explain the process for creating the CBD tinctures: 

Tinctures are developed by merging CBD herbs or flowers with high-proof alcohol, then heating the two compounds over low heat for an extended period of time–often several weeks for a single batch. The heat acts as a purifier for the alcohol, enabling it to infuse with the CBD dosage and turn it into liquid form, and can be ingested by the user after boiling off the excess spirits from the alcohol used. In the final form, the tincture becomes a liquid that provides an easy way to take and digest the CBD dosage, without having to inhale it, eat it, or ingest it in another form. When the concoction is completed, users ingest the tincture in very small doses (which is highly advisable given the high potency involved), via a dropper.
