What is a CBD Tincture?
CBD tinctures are typically used for oral consumption or for sublingual (beneath the tongue) administration. Typically, it will come in a small glass bottle with an eyedropper-type apparatus for precise dosing, please only purchase product in a dark colored – green, blue, or brown, glass bottle (this will help preserve the product). The best type of product with the most therapeutic benefits is to use full spectrum or broad-spectrum CBD tinctures. CBD requires a carrier oil to be present, this can be coconut oil, hemp seed oil, MCT (medium chain triglyceride) oil, and some are water based. The easiest way to use a CBD tincture is to place desired amount under your tongue, let the tincture penetrate for about one minute, and then swallow.
What Type of CBD Tincture Should I Use?
Your choices for tincture are full-spectrum, broad-spectrum and isolate. The type JPotter Health recommends depends on the client’s specific needs. A full-spectrum will have the most amount of CBD, minor cannabinoids, and terpenes present, a broad spectrum will also contain CBD, minor cannabinoids (minus THC), and terpenes. An isolate will only contain CBD. The advantage a broad and full-spectrum tincture offers is the entourage effect created by the presence of minor cannabinoids and terpenes.
