A rapidly growing segment of the CBD market is tinctures. Tinctures are concentrated liquids that contain either broad-spectrum or full-spectrum CBD. THC is a naturally occurring cannabinoid found in high quantities in cannabis plants and in lower quantities in hemp plants.
Full and broad-spectrum tinctures are two great options with a few key differences. Both are hemp-derived and federally legal under the 2018 farm bill.
Broad-spectrum CBD doesn’t have any THC, and you won’t experience any psychoactive effects while using it. Full-spectrum CBD tinctures contain about .03% THC per MG. This is a very small amount and is unlikely to give you the psychoactive effects of THC. This trace amount of THC can be detected on drug tests.
Because full-spectrum CBD contains trace amounts of THC, you will experience what researchers in the cannabis industry call the entourage effect. This is basically a multiplier on the effects of the individual cannabinoids, meaning you can expect higher levels of relief and relaxation from a full-spectrum tincture.
Is the Organic Label Worth it?
Regardless of if you prefer your CBD tincture with THC or without it, we strongly recommend choosing an organic product. This is for reasons very similar to purchasing organic foods. The additives and preservatives put into CBD tinctures aren’t necessary and dilute the product and benefits.
Going organic eliminates any concerns about artificial ingredients and chemicals. In addition, organic products are also non-GMO and use only natural flavorings and essential oils in flavored tincture varieties. This guarantees that you’re experiencing the natural effects you’re seeking from CBD.
How to Use CBD Tincture
Organic CBD tinctures with and without THC can be used at any time of day, whether you’re just waking up or winding down for the night. Dosage can be easily adjusted by adding a drop or two with each use to find the ideal amount to achieve your desired wellness benefits. Tinctures are most effective when used sublingually(that means under the tongue, you can just drop it onto your tongue if you want). Once you’ve got it in your mouth, just swallow and wait a few minutes. If you don’t want to swallow the tincture directly, you can add droplets to any food or drink you want.
Picking the Right Tincture for Your Needs
Organic vs inorganic isn’t the only choice you’ll need to make when choosing a tincture. As mentioned above, you’ll need to choose between full or broad-spectrum tinctures. You’ll also have the choice between flavored or unflavored tinctures. If you’re adding drops to food or drinks, we recommend unflavored ones.
