Yo, what’s good? My name’s Dan and today we’re gonna talk about cannabis tinctures. Now, if you’ve done your research on this topic, you might have heard some terms like THD or CBD tinctures. Basically, these are liquid forms of weed that have been extracted from the cannabis plant’s THC or CBD content (or sometimes both) using high alcohol solvents. But for this article, we’re gonna focus on CBD-concentrated tinctures and how they differ from CBD oils.
So, what exactly are cannabis tinctures? Well, they’re basically a type of weed product that’s been strained and mixed with high-potency alcohol to create a liquid form. This mixture is then usually placed in a glass container with a dropper as its primary applicator. Unlike most other weed products, tinctures are usually consumed by placing them under your tongue through the sublingual gland. But just like other cannabis products, these tinctures are also used to treat various conditions or for getting high on CBD/THC.
Now, let’s talk about cannabidiol (CBD). This is a famous compound that can be found mostly in CBD-dominant flowers including Cannabis Sativa Plants. People use CBD for medical and therapeutic purposes because studies have shown that it can have positive effects on the human body’s Endocannabinoid System (ECS). The ECS works by naturally producing endocannabinoids for the body and is active even if you don’t use weed. Some researchers believe that CBD—which has a chemically identical structure to the ECS—can somehow prevent the endocannabinoid from breaking down into smaller molecules.
So, what are the benefits of CBD tinctures? Well, these liquid forms of weed contain extracted CBD compound through the use of high-proof alcohol solvents, which helps in preserving and protecting cannabinoid compounds from oxidation. Sometimes, manufacturers include vitamins, botanical extracts, or supplements like melatonin in their CBD tincture to enhance its effects. But generally, it’s the active CBD compounds in the CBD tinctures that make them unique from other medicines and more beneficial to their users.
The similarities of the CBD structure to the endocannabinoid of the human body enable the CBD to regulate and treat various illnesses and disorders of the ECS. The ECS is responsible for a wide array of human body processes and activities including mood, sleep, appetite, and memory among others. There is limited research that shows that CBD may also be able to offer some therapeutic benefits that can ease pains, depression, anxieties, acne, and even some type of seizures. Besides convenience, one of the reasons why most people prefer CBD tincture is because of its long shelf life, and its ability to deliver faster effects compared to smoking and ingesting.
Now, let’s talk about CBD oil. This is usually created by combining CBD extract with an inert carrier oil. Unlike CBD tinctures, CBD oil also contains other compounds such as terpenes and flavonoids in addition to CBD. After all the compounds are mixed with the carrier oil, additional artificial or natural flavors can be added for a tastier experience. Just like any other CBD-concentrated product, CBD oils don’t produce any high or psychoactive effects and are mainly used for their therapeutic properties.
According to a report from the World Health Organization (WHO), naturally occurring CBD is safe and well accepted in the human body, and no proof using pure CBD has any negative effects on public health: hence, Cannabidiol, in its pure state does not appear to cause any possible harm or abuse potential. WHO also identified CBD as a drug for treating epilepsy that doesn’t seem to respond effectively to other anti-seizure medicines. Although further studies on humans are required to fully understand how CBD affects the human system, there is preliminary data that suggests CBD may be helpful in treating a number of different illnesses, including psychosis, chronic pains, inflammations (neuropathy & arthritis), post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), insomnia, Alzheimer’s disease, type 1 diabetes, Parkinson’s disease and other cancer-related symptoms.
Now, you might be wondering: what’s the difference between CBD oil and CBD tinctures? Well, even though they might produce almost the same effects, they are two unique and distinct CBD products. Almost all CBD products are classified as CBD oils, even though a majority of them are labeled as tinctures in the market. Both mixtures can be easily dosed and mixed with a variety of food and beverages. The primary method for administration is through the sublingual gland. CBD oils can also be used topically and are priced lower compared to other forms of CBD products in the market. Furthermore, CBD tinctures tend to have a strong hint of bitterness compared to CBD oils, which is why most users prefer the latter.
So there you have it folks, a rundown of cannabis tinctures, CBD oils, and everything you need to know about them. Remember: once you’ve found the right dosage for your body, you’ll not only experience the greatest advantages from these supplements, but you’ll also feel fantastic and safe from any chances of overdosing. Thanks for tuning in!
