CBD Oil Tincture: What Is It & How Do You Use It?

Adding a CBD Oil tincture into your daily health routine is a great way to easily incorporate the benefits of CBD into your life. 

There’s a lot of information out there about CBD— some of it good, some of it not so good— and it can be hard to determine what taking a CBD tincture will actually be like. 

In this post we’re going to answer:

  • What is a CBD oil tincture? 
  • What will a CBD oil tincture make me feel like? 
  • How do I use a CBD oil tincture? 

What is a CBD Oil Tincture? 

A tincture is a mix of one or more herbs in a concentrated liquid form. One can make a tincture by combining an herb with a liquid over low heat and letting it sit for a designated period of time. 

At Sunset Lake CBD, we extract the full-spectrum oil (whole-plant oil) from CBD hemp flower and combine it with Organic MCT oil for the tincture. As opposed to broad-spectrum, Sunset Lake tinctures are full-spectrum, meaning that none of the cannabinoids present in our hemp are remediated. 

Read more about full-spectrum vs. broad-spectrum CBD here. 

Using a bit of math, we can calculate just how many milligrams of CBD will be in one full dropper (1 mL) of your CBD oil tincture. The more milligrams of CBD, the more potent the product. 

Sunset Lake offers a range of CBD oil tinctures at varying potencies to meet all of your (and your pet’s) needs. Check them out HERE

What will a CBD Oil Tincture Make Me Feel Like? 

Cannabidinol (CBD) is a naturally occurring cannabinoid in hemp plants. It’s currently being studied for its ability to manage the following: 

  • Anxiety
  • Sleep 
  • Inflammation
  • Epilepsy 
  • Appetite

Of course, as a natural remedy, each person’s body will respond differently to CBD. However, CBD is not psychoactive and will not make you feel “stoned.” Many folks experience an elevated state of relaxation and calm after use. 

How do I Use My CBD Oil Tincture? 

CBD can affect people differently based on a few things like: 

  • Weight 
  • Body size 
  • Previous cannabis/CBD use 
  • Type of CBD (full-spectrum, broad-spectrum, isolate)

For most folks, Sunset Lake recommends starting with a 25mg dose. That’s a full dropper of our 750mg CBD oil tincture (the blue bottle) and adjusting your dose based on your personal needs. 750 milligram CBD Oil Tincture

You can take your CBD oil tincture a few different ways. 

  • Under the tongue (sublingual) – this is the fastest-acting ingestion method. The CBD oil tincture will enter the bloodstream via the thin membrane under your tongue. 
  • In a beverage. 
  • On food – likely the slowest of the three ways.
