A CBD tincture is a liquid supplement containing CBD Oil as well as other carrier oils. Tinctures help make CBD hemp oil taste better as the taste of hemp is very earthy and not enjoyed by all.
How Do You Use CBD Full-Spectrum Tinctures?
CBD tinctures have a high concentration of cannabidiol, so a little goes a long way. All of our tinctures come in a variety of strengths with a built-in dropper for easy measuring. Simply shake the bottle, squeeze the top, place the oil under your tongue, and hold it there for 1-2 minutes. And that’s it!
You can also infuse your favorite beverages or foods with hemp extract oil to get your CBD serving in a more palatable way. Bake it into cupcakes, stir it into your morning coffee, or add it to a smoothie—get creative!
What Is CBD Full-Spectrum Tincture Used For?
Ongoing research is being conducted in relation to the benefits of full-spectrum CBD oil. Unlike broad-spectrum CBD or CBD isolate, full-spectrum CBD is extracted with all the cannabinoids and terpenes found in the hemp plant. When these components are combined, they create what is known as the entourage effect. The only component not added to the full-spectrum CBD oil is the psychoactive compound, THC (tetrahydrocannabinol).
Many customers have made claims about relief they have experienced for insomnia, chronic pain, inflammation, poor focus, skin conditions, anxiety, depression, muscle recovery, and so on. While the vast majority of CBD products are not FDA-approved for the treatment of these ailments, we encourage you to do the research on scientific studies for CBD and come to your own conclusions. Or try it for yourself to see how it works for you!
What’s the Difference Between Hemp Oil and CBD Oil?
This can trip up a lot of people. Generally, the term “CBD oil” is used to describe a product that contains only CBD without any additional cannabinoids or terpenes (i.e., CBD isolate). “Hemp oil” on the other hand can be used to describe a wide variety of products that could be full-spectrum, broad spectrum, isolate, or even hemp seed oil. Made By Hemp specifically carries hemp-derived, full-spectrum CBD oil so you know exactly what kind of tinctures you are buying and consuming.
How Long Does It Take for CBD Oil Tinctures to Take Effect?
Because everyone metabolizes CBD differently, the time it takes to feel the effects can vary widely. While some may experience noticeable results after the first use, others may not see a difference for two or three weeks. We recommend taking your CBD tinctures on a consistent basis for at least 30 days before determining how your body responds to the regimen.
How Much Should You Take?
Many people who are trying CBD oil wonder how much they should take per serving. Since the research about these effects is still ongoing, it’s not a question that can be answered with certainty. The rule of thumb is to start off at the lowest possible amount and work your way up until you reach a therapeutic serving size. There are various factors that will influence how much you should take, including:
- Tincture strength
With all these reasons, it is easy to see why you cannot simply offer a one-size-fits-all answer. When in doubt, ask your healthcare provider for their recommendation. You can also check on the tincture bottle to know how much you should be taking based on the concentration of the tincture. While there isn’t a risk of overdosing, studies have shown that CBD can affect your liver in higher amounts, so once you find the right serving, stick to that amount.
What Are Terpenes?
Terpenes are aromatic compounds found in plants that create a distinct smell. Many people relate them to cannabis because the plant contains a significant amount of them, but they are also found in flowers, essential oils, fruit rinds, and even tree bark.
Overall, there are 20,000+ terpenes, 200 of which are sourced from the cannabis plant. This includes limonene, which is also found in citrus fruits and helps you absorb other terpenes; humulene, which contributes to CBD’s fragrant scent; linalool, commonly found in lavender and chamomile plants and elicits a calming effect; and pinene, used as an anti-inflammatory for thousands of years and is naturally found in rosemary, orange peels, and pine trees.
