WHAT ARE CBD TINCTURES?
A CBD tincture is a dietary supplement that comes in liquid form and has a very potent cannabidiol content. Tinctures are created by steeping CBD-rich hemp flowers in high-proof grain alcohol, then cooking over low heat for multiple hours. Vinegar or glycerin can be used in lieu of alcohol, but alcohol really does produce the best tincture in the end. It’s time-consuming but very simple.
Once the liquid is ready, it’s commonly mixed with a sweet tasting carrier oil like orange or peppermint. On its own, it can be very bitter. The final product should be potent, with a very high CBD content and no more than 0.3% THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol).
HOW TO USE A TINCTURE
Since tinctures are concentrated, it’s supposed to be taken in very small doses. Most come with a built-in mL dropper, but some people use an eye dropper. Taking too much won’t cause an overdose or anything like that, but huge doses are often unneeded by most therapeutic CBD users. If more is needed, it is a simple case of having a few more drops.
Research suggests that substances taken sublingually are absorbed by the body faster than with other oral methods. When dosing a CBD tincture sublingually, make sure to actually hold the tincture under your tongue for at least a minute to allow it to absorb, before swallowing the rest. The membrane under your tongue allows for absorption by your sublingual artery. From there it will travel to your external carotid artery, then through the internal carotid artery, and into your brain. Effects can start to take place in about 15 minutes.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?
CBD tinctures can be used to supplement anything that would be supplemented with regular CBD oil. Because the tincture is concentrated, it will have the same effects, but you’ll only have to use a small dose. Tinctures, and CBD, in general, can be used to supplement a healthy lifestyle, as well as support the management of various conditions — though always consult a medical professional. CBD is being investigated as a strong anti-inflammatory and antiseptic compound.
Tinctures can have some major practical advantages as well. For example, tinctures are easy to consume discreetly throughout the day since they require no prep work and don’t need to be smoked or vaporized. The dropper bottles themselves are very small and easy to conceal in a purse or pocket. It’s high concentration also plays into the convenience. Since only small amounts are needed, it’s easy to adjust your daily dose with absolute precision.
The CBD Authority Commitment.
The CBD industry is a new and potentially trans-formative for those who have helplessly watched their pets suffer. However, because the inventory is so new and has minimal regulatory oversight, countless brands have popped up with unsubstantiated claims and unproven product. The CBD Authority has committed to offering only the most reputable brands on the market today and only after having independent laboratories test their products for potency and the absence of potentially dangerous contaminants. We have even committed to not making our own product so that we can have no bias. We are committed to delivering products you can be confident in.

Cannabinoids are active compounds produced by all cannabis plants. They account for most of the benefits of cannabis.
