How are CBD Tinctures made?

CBD Tinctures are an easily accessible and a highly effective way to utilize the benefits of CBD. To break down CBD Tinctures let’s first take a look at the way that this product is made. In order to create CBD Tinctures, you have to start by steeping cannabis or hemp flower in alcohol and allow for it to cook down over a low heat (Populum, 2018). By doing this the CBD has time to amalgamate with the alcohol (L Coles, Jr, 2011). The alcohol will eventually be boiled off and you will be left with a solution containing a high bioavailability CBD (Populum, 2018).

How do CBD Tinctures work?

CBD Tinctures are absorbed into the bloodstream (Iffland and Grotenhermen, 2017). This is when the benefits begin to take place and become apparent to the user. More specifically CBD Tincture is absorbed by capillaries in areas within the mouth such as, the cheeks, gums, and under the tongue (Iffland and Grotenhermen, 2017). By directing ingesting CBD Tincture in the mouth you are able to again, have a higher bioavailability and enjoy a more thorough effect.

As mentioned, CBD Tinctures are a highly potent form of CBD as it has been boiled down to be extremely concentrated. Having any substance with a high bioavailability comes the need for control and moderation (Iffland and Grotenhermen, 2017). This is why CBD tinctures are made to be put into a small dropper that allows for that very specific and controlled dosages that is discussed above (Cornwell, 2020).
