4 Things Consumers Should Know About CBD Tinctures

September 6, 2019 15:00:25

CBD is all the rage and you may have heard about CBD gummies, CBD oils and CBD tinctures (even CBD-infused clothing!). If you would like to try out a CBD product, read the following important things about CBD tinctures and be an informed consumer.

CBD Tinctures Aren’t CBD Oils

While it is common to hear people use the terms CBD tincture and CBD oil interchangeably, the two substances are different even if they are extracted from the same plant material. CBD tinctures are made by soaking hemp flowers in a solution of alcohol and water while CBD oil is extracted using carbon dioxide (the best extraction method) or chemical solvents (resulting in the cheaper, poorer quality CBD oils). Therefore, if you want a CBD tincture, be sure to buy a tincture and not an oil.

Consume Tinctures in Small Doses

Because tinctures are very concentrated, you can attain the therapeutic effects that you seek by taking a very small amount of the substance. For this reason, CBD tincture bottles come with a dropper that you can use to measure out a specified dosage that will ease your symptoms. You should therefore avoid taking a lot of a CBD tincture all at once since this will make the treatment very expensive and you could develop some mild side effects, such as a running stomach. However, not many cases of people suffering side effects as a result of consuming CBD have been reported, but it does no harm to be cautious and take just what you need for symptomatic relief.

The Best Tinctures Contain Terpenes

CBD isn’t the only therapeutic compound in hemp, so the potency of the CBD tincture that you buy will also depend on what other compounds are present. For example, terpenes are responsible for the unique flavors and aromas. These terpenes also have medicinal effects. For example, myrcene helps in combating anxiety.

However, terpenes are very volatile and are lost during the extraction process, so manufacturers have to add them again to the tincture. It is therefore helpful to find which particular terpenes have been added and what medicinal effects they bring so that you only buy a tincture with the terpenes that can help with your condition.

Beware of Cheap CBD Tinctures

It is quite expensive to make a high-quality CBD tincture, and this means that the product price will also reflect this high cost of producing the tincture. Be careful when you come across retailers selling CBD tinctures at a bargain because what they are selling may not be as helpful as you would want.

Entering the world of CBD products is an adventure that you should enjoy as you explore the benefits that the different products have to offer. Use the tips above to make that journey more enjoyable. Experts are convinced companies like Neutra Corp. (OTCQB: NTRR) and Organigram Holdings Inc. (TSX: OGI) (NASDAQ: OGI) are doing their best to make your adventure worthwhile, so enjoy the ride!
