A pure CBD tincture is a liquid formulation containing only cannabidiol (CBD) extracted from the cannabis plant and a carrier oil, such as coconut oil or hemp seed oil. Tinctures are a popular method of consuming CBD due to their ease of use, accurate dosing, and rapid onset of effects.
Here’s what you can typically expect from a pure CBD tincture:
- High CBD Concentration: Pure CBD tinctures contain a high concentration of CBD, often ranging from 500 milligrams (mg) to 3000 mg or more per bottle, depending on the product’s potency. This high concentration allows users to achieve their desired dosage with smaller volumes of the tincture.
- No THC: Pure CBD tinctures are made from CBD isolate or broad-spectrum CBD extract, which contains no or negligible amounts of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the psychoactive compound in cannabis. As a result, pure CBD tinctures do not produce any intoxicating effects and are suitable for individuals who want to avoid THC entirely.
- Carrier Oil: CBD is a fat-soluble compound, so it’s typically dissolved in a carrier oil to improve absorption and bioavailability. Common carrier oils used in CBD tinctures include coconut oil, hemp seed oil, and MCT (medium-chain triglyceride) oil. These oils also provide additional health benefits, such as essential fatty acids and antioxidants.
