Are you new to the wonderful world of weed?
Did you know that not all of the parts of the cannabis plant make you high?
You may have heard of something called CBD. This nifty little chemical is responsible for treating chronic pain, seizure disorders, Alzheimer’s, eating disorders, anxiety disorders, and major depressive disorder. That’s a lot of power for one little chemical.
Perhaps one of the best benefits of this miracle drug is that it doesn’t require a prescription. Virtually anyone can purchase a CBD product.
But with all of these different products on the market, how will you know what’s best for you? Today we’re going to talk about CBD tinctures and how they could help you.
Read on for a beginners guide to CBD tinctures.
What Is CBD and How Is It Beneficial?
To put it simply, CBD, or cannabidiol, is a chemical found in the cannabis plant.
No, it will not make you high, as it does not contain any THC. This is the reason it is legal in every state and it’s also why you don’t need a prescription.
CBD is one of more than 100 chemicals found in the cannabis plant. Doctors referred to CBD as a miracle drug because of its vast array of benefits (those mentioned above.)
As the legality of the cannabis plant is now being openly discussed, researchers are able to perform more and more studies on this miraculous plant.
What Is a Tincture?
Now that we have a basic understanding of CBD in its purest form, let’s take a look at CBD in its tincture form.
Tinctures are made by soaking the flowers of the cannabis plant in high-grade alcohol. After some time has passed, the Cannabis flowers will have leaked the potent CBD chemicals into the alcohol.
The CBD mixture is then cooked until all of the alcohol has all been burned away.
What’s left will be an oily liquid that is highly potent with CBD.
How to Take a CBD Tincture
Once you’ve purchased a CBD tincture, you’ll want to look at the directions label to check the manufacturer’s recommended dosing.
For general dosing, you’ll want to use the dropper to drop 3 to 5 small drops under your tongue. Let the drops sit under your tongue for at least 90 seconds. Now just give it a good swallow.
You’re all set. It shouldn’t take long for the tincture to take effect. Using tinctures can be especially helpful for those suffering from chronic pain or anxiety attacks because it takes effect so quickly.
OK, we were wrong. The real best part about CBD tinctures is that they come in all sorts of flavors.
Feeling fruity? Looking for something more natural?
Whatever makes your taste buds sore, you can find it in a CBD tincture.
