What Is A Tincture?
A tincture is an extract from plant sources which is infused with oil. It is also made with low volatility substance such as iodine and mercurochrome.
CBD tinctures are made when CBD is extracted from the organic hemp plant using CO2 extraction methods. The CBD is then infused with MCT oil to create the final product.
Tinctures can be added into drink or food, or taken directly by mouth. Tinctures are a great foray into the world of CBD, as you can start with small doses and increase as required.
How to use CBD Tincture
CBD Tinctures are generally taken orally, although they can also be rubbed into the skin. Tinctures are usually taken by placing a few drops underneath your tongue. As oral mucosa are so absorptive CBD enters the bloodstream almost immediately. If you choose to add the tincture to food or drink, absorption will be slower as the CBD must pass through the liver.
How fast is the onset?
When dosing a CBD Tincture, expect to feel the effects in 15-45 minutes. The effects will reach their peak at about 90 minutes. If you consume the tincture mixed with food or a drink, the effects will take longer to set in.
