What are CBD Tinctures?
A growing number of people are using cannabidiol (CBD) oil as a way to heal from or ward off all kinds of medical ailments. Anyone interested in trying it out themselves can use a couple of different methods for getting it into their system. We touched on CBD tinctures in a previous blog post, but now we want to highlight one method in particular. Here is everything that you should know about full-spectrum CBD tinctures, including the finer details on their unique properties and benefits.
Tinctures are essentially the liquid method of using CBD. While other methods, such as vaping, require you to smoke and inhale the CBD, tinctures give you a way to simply ingest it. Bottles of the solution tend to come with droppers because a few tiny drops are all that anyone needs to feel the effects. You can mix these drops with food and drink for greater taste. Alternatively, you can place them underneath your tongue for quicker absorption.
The making of a CBD tincture begins with the cannabis plant, as with just about everything else related to the oil. Typically, the plant is steeped until desirable plant matter and cannabinoids separates from it. The resulting solution is then heated up, which increases its potency. The process leaves us with a liquid that contains all of the medicinal qualities of cannabis or hemp plants and only a faint, inconsequential trace of THC.
People typically use high-proof alcohol to make tinctures, but Shangri-La CBD substitutes a few alternative organic ingredients for excellent results. One is caprylic acid, found in coconut oil and packed with healthy properties. Another is full-spectrum CBD oil, which requires a more detailed explanation.
Full-Spectrum CBD vs. CBD Isolate
When looking at tinctures, or any other products, you will find some that are labeled as containing “full-spectrum CBD” and others with the ingredient “CBD Isolate.” The latter is a CBD oil consisting entirely of cannabidiol. It is pure and distilled, with the namesake chemical compound extracted straight from the plant with practically nothing else.
Full-spectrum CBD could be considered the polar opposite of CBD Isolate. Instead of working to remove every other chemical from the cannabis plant, this type of oil embraces its fellow cannabinoids. These other chemicals are incorporated into the formula because some can treat issues that CBD cannot handle on its own.
To be perfectly clear, products created with CBD Isolate also come with plenty of health benefits. CBD oil does not need much else to still be good. With that said, full-spectrum CBD products have a much wider array of applications, which is really saying something when we talk about CBD. Ultimately, it is up to you which kind you would prefer in your tincture.
