WHAT ARE CBD TINCTURES
A tincture in essence, applies to any medicine that is suspended or delivered in alcohol. Tincture CBD products are actually made using distilled alcohol to extract the cannabinoids and terpenes from the dry herb. After sufficient steeping time, the liquid is then strained and boiled down to produce a highly concentrated source of cannabidiols.
A cannabis tincture is a popular dietary supplement containing a variety of cannabinoids, that can be taken orally or sublingually. A Heavenly Gardens CBD tincture will specifically contain high levels of CBD, and low (0.3%) or non-existent levels of THC. It’s thanks to the lack of THC, that CBD tincture effects do not include any of the mind-altering consequences associated with being “high”.
While CBD tinctures can contain extremely potent levels of cannabidiol, in today’s growing market tinctures are generally less potent than CBD oils, as producers will often mix the liquid extract into a carrier liquid such as peppermint or orange oil, to improve the taste.
The main difference between the two different CBD tincture uses (being oral and sublingual dosing), is the length of time that the CBD takes to get into your bloodstream. Taking tinctures orally will result in a slower onset of longer-lasting effects while taking them sublingually will get the compounds in and out of your bloodstream much faster.
