A Beginner's Guide To CBD Tinctures


Are you interested in CBD (cannabidiol) tinctures? If you are, you should know that experts use high CBD hemp strains and high-proof alcohol to make these extracts. In addition, CBD tinctures have low CBD potency, a long shelf-life, and higher bioavailability than most other alternatives, including CBD oils. That is why many users today prefer them. Moreover, these extracts can help you treat health issues like anxiety, insomnia, migraines, chronic pain, and inflammatory conditions. But, before you go out and buy the product, you should get acquainted with the following types of CBD tinctures:

1.       Broad-spectrum CBD tinctures

Broad-spectrum CBD is a form of cannabidiol that contains various naturally-occurring cannabis compounds such as limonene, pinene, cannabinol, cannabichromene, and myrcene. But, typical broad-spectrum CBD tinctures have zero THC (tetrahydrocannabinol). THC is the chemical that binds with receptors in your body that control mood, pain, and other feelings. By doing that, this substance gives you a euphoric or "high" feeling.  However, since these tinctures contain most of the compounds found in the cannabis plant, you may get a heightened, calm, or relaxed aftereffect after using them. You can use broad-spectrum CBD tinctures to alleviate pain and anxiety or improve sleep and skin health.

2.       Full-spectrum CBD tinctures

Typical full-spectrum CBD tinctures contain various cannabis plant extracts. These include cannabinoids such as cannabinol, essential oils, and terpenes. In addition, most full-spectrum products have a tiny amount of tetrahydrocannabinol, which is highly unlikely to make you feel intoxicated, especially if you are a regular cannabis user. But, using a hefty dose of high potency tinctures will produce a "high" effect.  Besides, full-spectrum CBD products are associated with the "entourage effect". This term refers to the enhanced effects that cannabinoids like CBD have when the different compounds in their make-up work synergistically. You can use entourage-associated products to treat pain, epilepsy, cancer, fungal infections, inflammation, anxiety, and other conditions.

3.       CBD isolate tinctures

CBD isolate, just like broad-spectrum CBD, doesn't contain the psychoactive cannabis component, THC. That makes it a good alternative when planning to try CBD without consuming tetrahydrocannabinol. Plus, CBD isolates don't have terpenes, cannabinoids, or any other plant compounds apart from pure CBD.  Besides that, these CBD tinctures have no aftertaste because isolated products tend to be highly refined. Although the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) currently solely approves CBD isolate tinctures to treat a rare form of epilepsy known as refractory epilepsy, a recent article suggests that individuals can use it to manage numerous health issues. These include sleep disorders, social anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorders (PTSD), and opioid withdrawal.
