Tincture is a plant-matter extraction into a carrier oil or other fluid like alcohol or glycerin. CBD is less-often associated with alcohol extractions, so users are more likely to see grapeseed oil and coconut oil, vegetable glycerin and other stable carriers.
Using a tincture is simple. Most tinctures come with a dropper so that you can take measured dosages. Each tincture will have its own potency, so they will have different doses listed on the bottle as a general guideline. The good news is that CBD is nontoxic, so if you feel you need an extra dropper full or two, you can go for it.
CBD has very few side effects, the main one being a feeling of relaxation or drowsiness in higher intakes. This is one of the main reasons that people use CBD for a sleep aid and also for high anxiety. CBD is known to alleviate depression, symptoms of menopause and even seizure disorder.
Obviously the severity of the symptoms you are experiencing will influence the amount of CBD tincture you ingest. When you have the dropper fulls of tincture under your tongue, hold the liquid there for at least a minute and a half to take in all the benefits. Swishing it around a bit may help absorption, but it also might stir up that hemp-y taste, some like it, some don’t.
