A first visit to the cannabis dispensary may leave you surprised and a bit overwhelmed at the vast array of cannabis products available. Not only will you find cannabis in its most basic form as a flower, but you will also find several different methods of administration. You might come across capsules, topical creams, edibles, and most relevantly, CBD tinctures.
What Is a CBD Tincture
CBD tinctures are a liquid-form CBD product made by combining CBD oil extract with vegetable oil or an alternative form of nutritious oil such as hemp or coconut. This mixture creates a liquid-form CBD product that makes it simple for anyone to incorporate CBD into their everyday health routine.
Most prominent among them is Wisdom Essentials, a new line of CBD-infused. They are an excellent choice for CBD newbies and experienced enthusiasts, mainly because they have low amounts of THC. This means you can use CBD without getting high.
How to Use a CBD Tincture
There are several different ways to use CBD tinctures. Let’s take a closer look at two of the most common so you can decide which method is best suited for you.
1. Taken Orally
The most common way people use CBD tinctures is orally (by mouth). Measure your required dosage and place the liquid in a dropper. Next, place the dropper in your mouth and squeeze the liquid out, then swallow.
While the effects of consuming CBD often differ with people, it should take an average of about 25 to 30 minutes for you to experience the effects of the CBD tincture.
2. Added to Food or Drinks
If you don’t want to consume your CBD tincture orally, you can also add it to your food, smoothies, soups, or stews. It can be a great addition to the morning coffee you need to power through your day. You can also take it with your evening herbal tea, where you’ll get a good relaxing feeling thanks to the calming properties of the CBD and the tea.
Bear in mind that taking your CBD tincture dosage with your feed will mean it might take a bit longer for you to feel the desired effects than taking them orally. This is because the food has to be digested first.
It can take at least an hour or two before you start to feel the effects.
What Is the Right Dosage for You
If you’re trying CBD tinctures for the first time, it’s a must that you find your optimal dose. However, this will depend on the problem you’re trying to solve. For people with hectic schedules, 0.25 ml twice per day should help reduce their stress levels. For people with physical discomfort, 0.30 ml two times every day should be enough to help their bodies recover.
You can use this 3-week guide to find your optimal dose once you’ve established the condition you’re trying to treat:
Week 1: Start slowly with a basic dose of 0.2ml for the first four days, once in the morning and once more in the evening.
Week 2: You can now increase your dosage since your body will have created some sort of tolerance. Take 0.5ml in the morning and 0.75ml in the evening.
Week 3: Take 0.75ml in the morning and 1ml in the evening.
Remember to keep tabs on your experience and dial back your dosage if you notice signs of intoxication. This will help you establish an optimum baseline to work with in the future.
