What is a CBD oil tincture?

Posted by DiscoverCBD.com Administrator on

All over the internet you can find CBD oil tinctures but if you ever wondered "what is a CBD oil tincture exactly?" This article is for you.  If you would like to purchase CBD oil tnctures you can do so at DiscoverCBD.com HERE.

Many people will think that a CBD oil tincture is just CBD oil but that simply isn't the case.

Any real CBD oil tincture will contain CBD oil in it but it will only be a small percentage of the overall volume of the tincture.

CBD tinctures will usually consist of a number of ingredients that play many different roles.  The base product will usually be one of these things or a mixture of these things.

  • Vegetable glycerin (Most common base)
  • Coconut oil
  • Alcohol

Base products will serve a few purposes, one use is to dilute the oil so it can be mixed with things such as sweeteners, emulsifiers, flavor enhancers and other things.

There are secondary ingredients in many different types of tinctures as well and those can include.

  • Polysorbate 80 (emulsifier)
  • Lecithin (emulsifier)
  • Water (used to thin out the product)
  • Natural or artificial flavoring (flavor enhancer)
  • Sweetener (usually used to help cover up the bitterness of the oil)
  • CBD oil or CBD isolate.

CBD oil "tincture" will usually come in 1/2 oz, 1oz and 2oz sizes and you will see typical strengths between 100mg of CBD to 500mg of CBD.  CBD oil tinctures will be thick but will still flow freely at room temperature.

Just regular CBD oil will generally come in syringes or small canisters and will usually come in 1 gram, 3 gram, 5 gram and 10 gram increments and with typical strengths of 15% to 25%.  CBD oil in this form is nothing other than the high CBD hemp oil and will be thick like a paste and will not be runny at room temperature.

The important thing to remember with tinctures is that they are mostly NOT CBD oil and mostly other ingredients.  This can be particularly confusing when some companies label their tinctures as "CBD oil".  Depending on the tincture you get you will likely have anywhere from between .25% and 3% actual CBD oil in the tincture but it is not 100% CBD oil.

CBD oil tinctures do fill a need of users in many ways though.  Benefits to CBD tinctures over 100% CBD oil are these two main things, easier to dose and it tastes better.

CBD tinctures can be much easier to dose than just plain CBD oil simply because it is not nearly as concentrated so one drop of tincture contains much less CBD oil than one drop of CBD oil that's not a tincture.  The difference of 1 drop in a tincture might be 1 mg of CBD where as the difference of one drop in CBD oil will be closer to 25mgs.

Taste is another factor when working with tinctures and while just plain CBD oil has no flavoring and is not the most savory thing to put in your mouth but tinctures are another story.  While we are not going to say tinctures taste good we think there is a valid argument to be made that they taste better than just straight CBD oil. CBD tinctures can come in a variety of flavors such as cinnamon, peppermint, and even some exotic flavors like banana cream pie, green apple and more.  Tasting better can be a real benefit with CBD because you can keep it under your tongue longer and absorb the CBD oil better.

Use:  CBD oil tinctures are best if placed under your tongue for 30-90 seconds until it is dissolved.  The general starting dose of CBD tinctures is 1 dropper twice a day. Depending on the strength of the tincture you would be using between 7mgs and 18mgs when you take 2 dropper fulls a day.
