What are CBD Tinctures?

Mountains

Hemp CBD tinctures are the perfect natural alternative to support an everyday wellness routine. CBD Hemp oil assists in the stimulation of your body’s endocannabinoid system, which helps regulate your entire immune system including pain, inflammation, mood, sleep and general wellness. CBD helps promote balance and daily well-being.

CBD is an appealing option for those who are looking for relief from pain and other symptoms without the psychoactive “high” effects of marijuana or certain pharmaceutical drugs.

So what is a CBD tincture?

CBD oil tinctures are made by extracting CBD from cannabinoid-rich hemp plants. It’s then made into a highly concentrated liquid herbal extraction and diluted with a carrier oil, like coconut or hemp seed oil. The bottled oil, called a “tincture” can be made into different strengths and concentrations and have a natural flavor or have added flavors, such as peppermint. Tinctures possess numerous advantages over other CBD delivery methods.

  • They have a higher bioavailability compared to other delivery methods
  • They have a longer shelf-life compared to other CBD products
  • Cannabidiol tinctures are easier to add to food and drinks
  • Tinctures have the most immediate effect and absorb into the body faster
  • They’re easy to dose, allowing you to quickly adjust the dosage size

Now that you have an introduction on CBD tinctures, we’re ready to learn more about the effects of CBD tinctures and how to use them.

How Will the CBD Oil Tincture Make Me Feel?

At least 80 chemical compounds called cannabinoids have been found in the hemp (Cannabis sativa plant.) The most active compound found in the hemp plant is CBD, while the most active compound in marijuana is THC.

Years of research have indicated that CBD supports overall wellness in our bodies, obtained when cannabidiol CBD improves the Endocannabinoid System (ECS).

Not medically discovered until the 90s, the Endocannabinoid System is believed to be one of the most critical receptor systems in our body for maintaining good health and has been acknowledged as a vital modulatory system in the function of the immune, brain, and endocrine tissues.

Recent science has noted that the Endocannabinoid System does not only reply to Endogenous cannabinoids manufactured in the body but also responds to outer cannabinoids as a way of improving the body’s ECS function.

In the ECS there are many receptors called the CB1 and CB2 receptors which are found throughout the body. These neurons are a lock of sorts, with cannabinoids assuming the role of the key. CB1 receptors are present in large numbers in the brain, specifically in the Amygdala, Hypothalamus, and Hippocampus. CB2 receptors are available mostly in the immune cells, spleen, thymus, and tonsils. Cannabidiol has various effects on the ECS for different people, as everybody is unique.

Endocannabinoid System

How Do I Use My CBD Oil Tincture?

The most popular way to use a CBD tincture is sublingually. Underneath the tongue is an area rich in capillaries. The oil is absorbed into the bloodstream by these capillaries. CBD oil is best absorbed when placed under the tongue for 60 seconds and then swallowed. This way the effects are not decreased by digestion. The sublingual method allows it to enter the bloodstream faster and interact with the endocannabinoid system. Do not swallow it immediately, as it will reduce bioavailability and take longer to feel the results.

While oil droppers indicate the amount you are taking, it also allows for a more flexible CBD intake.

Nature’s Legend CBD oil comes in 1oz bottles which contain either 500mg1000mg or 1500mg of CBD per bottle. This means you get (30) servings of 16.67mg (500mg), 33.33mg (1000mg) or 50mg (1500mg), with each serving.

If you’re new to CBD, please don’t rush the results. The best technique on how to take a CBD tincture, is to take it as prescribed on the bottle and wait for your body to react to it. It is best to maintain a daily regimen for at least 30 days to experience full results.

CBD Oil Lab Testing

Now that you understand what CBD is, your next question may be where to buy CBD oil. You can buy CBD oil online, at dispensaries and in specialty retail stores. One of the downsides of buying CBD oil at a dispensary or retail shop is the lack of quality control. Since retailers are often purchasing products from external extractors, they often don’t provide lab reports or purity analysis.

If a CBD oil company makes outlandish claims about their products potential, be aware. Only buy from reputable companies that can provide the science behind their products. Much like social media advertising, anyone can claim to sell CBD oil. Before buying CBD oil online, review their third-party lab results posted online. It there are no third-party lab results available and they don’t provide them, shop elsewhere.

When you purchase CBD oil directly from companies like Nature’s Legend with information about their manufacturing process and verified third-party lab reports, you know you’re getting the best in high-quality CBD oil. All Nature’s Legend third-party lab reports are available online for every batch.

Supporting your wellness with hemp-derived CBD can have a considerable impact on your overall health and wellbeing. But not all CBD products are the same. Some product manufacturers sell low quality products imported from China that contain far less CBD than specified on the product labels. Since the purity and potency of your hemp-derived products could determine how well they might support your health and wellness, it’s important to purchase products from a reputable, reliable company like Nature’s Legend.
