Cannabidiol, commonly referred to as CBD, is a naturally occurring compound found in the resinous flower of cannabis, a plant with a rich history as a medicine going back thousands of years. Today, the therapeutic properties of CBD are being tested and confirmed by scientists and doctors around the world. A safe, non-addictive substance, CBD is one of more than a hundred “phytocannabinoids,” which are unique to cannabis and endow the plant with its robust therapeutic profile. Specifically, a CBD tincture is a liquid extract that is typically made by soaking the raw hemp material rich in CBD in a solvent such as alcohol or a solventless extraction method. After a period of time, the solvent is removed, and the remaining extract is often mixed with a carrier oil like MCT oil, glycerin, or hemp seed oil to improve its taste and preservation. The result is a potent liquid that delivers the effects of the cannabinoid molecules without any smoking or other form of combustion. Tinctures are designed to be used in small doses due to their concentration and are administered in a variety of ways, often sublingually (under the tongue) to ensure rapid absorption and quick onset of effects. They can also be added to food and beverages for ease of use. The precise concentration of CBD in tinctures can vary from one product to another. CBD tinctures are favored by many due to their ease of use, long shelf life, and speed of delivery, especially compared to other methods of CBD consumption like topical application or ingestion of edible forms.
