A tincture is a concentrated formula that normally comes in small dropper-style bottles. It may be taken sublingually or may also be used topically. A tincture is available as water-based, alcohol-based, or oil-based, depending on the formulation.

CBD tinctures are normally produced using concentrated extracts from the cannabis or hemp plant. These extracts may come in the form of pure CBD Isolate, which contains pure CBD that is infused into a carrier oil such as MCT. CBD tinctures can also be made using a concentrated distillate. Products that use a distillate will normally say "broad spectrum" or "full spectrum" on the packaging. The term "spectrum" is used to describe the fact that this type of CBD tincture contains naturally occurring terpenes and, more importantly, other Cannabinoids such as CBG, CBD, and—in the case of full-spectrum CBD tinctures—small amounts of THC <0.3%.

These terms are used interchangeably, with CBD tinctures usually taken to mean pure CBD oil used sublingually or by placing the product under the tongue.

While each CBD tincture has specific directions for use to maximize its effectivity, this is how they generally work:

1) Place the CBD oil/tincture under your tongue for 90 to 120 seconds

2)This is mainly to get its maximum effect. Swallowing it right away would make it go through your digestive tract, which might diminish the CBD oil/tincture's potency.

3) When you keep the CBD tincture under your tongue, it is absorbed by your blood vessels through the capillaries in your gums, tongue, and cheek—so it works faster. The remainder is swallowed and absorbed through your digestive system.

4) Effects should take hold between 15 minutes to an hour, with the overall result lasting between six to eight hours.
