There are so many CBD products out on the market today that it can be a challenge to decide what’s right for you. There are a few things to consider when selecting a product. These include flavor, ingredients, and how you’ll ingest it.
For those looking to explore the benefits of multiple cannabinoids, in a way that’s easy-to-use, discreet, and fast-acting, a full-spectrum CBD tincture is the right place to start.
What is full-spectrum CBD?
Once a crop of hemp gets harvested, the flower gets dried and put through extraction. This creates the oil that then goes into a variety of different products. However, various levels of refinement are necessary in order to achieve different types of oils.
When you want to focus an extract on a specific cannabinoid, you have two choices — leave traces of other cannabinoids in, or take them all out. When you leave them in, you’ve got a full-spectrum oil. The benefit to having a full-spectrum oil is that when you mix certain cannabinoids together, they work with each other, to enhance each other’s impact. This is what’s known as the entourage effect.
Full-spectrum tinctures will highlight the cannabinoid that’s in it the most, but it does contain others, including THC. Levels won’t be over the amount legal for hemp products though, which is only 0.3 percent. The amount of THC present will not make you feel ‘high’ or change the overall sensations most people feel when using CBD.
How do I use a tincture?
The great thing about tinctures are they’re fast and discreet. Just a drop or two, placed under your tongue is all you need to do. Holding the liquid there for a minute helps with absorption, which means you’ll feel the potential effects of CBD quicker.
Additionally, because tinctures get absorbed through the lining of your mouth, rather than digested through your stomach, they tend to take effect faster than other types of CBD products. If you’re using a tincture because you experience a specific benefit — reduced anxiety or less inflammation for example — you’ll see that result faster with a tincture. While everyone has a different experience with CBD, if it’s a compound you’ve used before, you can expect similar results.
Carrying a small bottle of tincture with you means you can quickly take a few drops as needed throughout the day.
Do I have flavor options?
Not all tinctures come with flavor options, but there’s no shortage of variety out there. The earthy taste of CBD isn’t for everyone, so many manufacturers will mask that flavor with the addition of other, more tasty essential oils.
At Arbor Vita8, our CBD Full-Spectrum Tincture comes in three flavors. For those who like to refresh their mouth while ingesting CBD, there’s chocolate mint. For those who want an energetic burst, there’s an orange flavor. There’s also a natural flavor for purists who want the original taste.
Other flavors out there can range from sugary skittles to citrusy lemongrass. You can definitely cater to your own palette when selecting the right tincture for you.
Where do I purchase a high-quality CBD tincture?
