Tinctures are produced by steeping cannabis/hemp flowers or isolates in a high-proof grain alcohol, then applying low heat for a significant span of time. This allows the active compounds in cannabis to infuse into the neutral spirit, much of which is then boiled off.
The result is a potent liquid that delivers the effects of the cannabinoid molecules without smoking or other form of combustion.
An additional benefit for the user is that a number of high quality CBD Tinctures include MCT (medium-chain triglyceride) Oil which is known to have many health benefits including diminishing lactate build up during exercise and it’s conversion to ketones in the liver which easily pass the blood brain barrier to provide energy to your brain cells.
Usage of CBD Tinctures is best sublingually by dropping you’re dose directly under the tongue and letting it sit there at least 60 seconds before swallowing. This allows maximum absorption of the CBD and MCT Oil into your blood vessels through the thin membrane on the bottom of your mouth.
