CBD has quickly become one of the most popular supplements across a wide range of users. From young adults to the elderly, people are discovering the benefits that hemp-derived products can offer. This popularity has led to countless brands jumping into the CBD industry and has led to their being hundreds, if not thousands, of products on the market. As a result, choosing the right CBD Oil Tincture can seem like a daunting task, but the process is simple as long as you know what to look for.
Let’s start off with the basics. So what exactly is CBD? CBD, or cannabidiol, is a natural compound produced by the hemp plant. CBD belongs to the same family as THC, the compound that causes marijuana’s “high” sensation. Unlike THC, however, CBD is non psychoactive, meaning that it will not cause you to feel the effects commonly associated with cannabis use. Using CBD induces a calm and comfortable sensation without causing the disorientation of marijuana use. In fact, for many people, CBD is about what they do not feel, rather than what they do feel—such as not feeling anxious, or not feeling pain. CBD is extracted from hemp, which are different strains of the cannabis plant, the same plant as plants which, while visually similar to marijuana, chosen and grown to ensure that they contain the less than 0.3% THC, as required by law. Under the 2018 Farm Bill, hemp—defined as cannabis with under 0.3% THC—was made legal to grow, possess, and use throughout the United States. Plants with higher THC levels cannot be legally classified as hemp or used to make hemp products and are illegal federally, although many States have legalized their use in one form or another.
One of the most convenient ways to administer CBD is using a CBD oil tincture. A tincture is a small bottle containing a dropper that can be used for myriad products. A CBD tincture is hemp extract mixed with a food safe oil such as MCT oil (coconut oil) or something similar like olive or avocado oil to the desired concentration. The result is a tincture that can easily be added to food, drinks, or administered orally. These tinctures are easy to enjoy and the effects will last for hours.
Many tinctures come in similar sized bottles. So what makes different CBD oil tinctures different? The first factor to consider is concentration, which will be listed in terms of how much hemp oil the product contains. This can range from 250mg to 1500+mg. Obviously you will need less of a stronger extract to achieve the desired effects. The best thing to do is to start with a weaker concentration and build up to strong tinctures depending on how they affect you.
Another factor you will want to consider is if you want a full spectrum or broad spectrum tincture. The main difference between these two varieties is the presence of THC. Full spectrum tinctures will retain the THC naturally present in the hemp plant, while broad spectrum tinctures will not. The process of removing the THC makes broad spectrum options a safe bet for users concerned about possible drug tests for THC. It should be noted that any oils that are cold extracted will not be psychoactive even if they contain THC. This is because THC must be heated in order to become psychoactive. Many people feel that full spectrum oil is better because the trace amounts of THC work with the other cannabinoids to produce the “entourage effect,” which is the effect of the naturally occurring cannabinoids producing the most natural effects. But others prefer broad spectrum to avoid any trace THC in the event they may be regularly drug tested. Either way can be good and is largely a personal choice.
