Tinctures & Drops FAQs
What are CBD tincture drops?
How does one take a CBD tincture? Does one swallow?
To administer a dose of CBD tincture, use a squeeze dropper usually incorporated into the lid of your tincture bottle to extract the desired amount of tincture. Place the dropper tip in your mouth under the tongue and squeeze to empty. Wait a few seconds for the dose to absorb, as the mouth contains more cannabinoid receptors than the throat or stomach and will better convey the CBD to the rest of your body. After waiting a bit, swallow and go about your business as normal.
What is the difference between CBD tincture and CBD oil?
CBD "tinctures" and "oils" are phrases often used interchangeably. Most are meant to be administered orally or blended into food or beverages, though some may be intended for application to the skin. Check the description and use instructions on your product if you're unsure how it's to be taken.
How do I use a CBD tincture?
Most CBD tinctures are designed to be taken orally. Administer the appropriate dose under your tongue, wait a few seconds before swallowing, and then go about your day. Depending on the strength of dose and your body's chemistry, you'll begin to notice effects anywhere from a few minutes to an hour after dosing.
