Our ancestors have used tinctures in medicine for centuries. A tincture combines extracts with a base for oral use, cooking, or baking. Most commonly, CBD companies infuse alcohol with CBD oil to make tinctures. Joy Organics uses a less abrasive medium, such as organic extra virgin olive oil or organic medium-chain triglycerides (MCT) oil.
CBD tinctures are readily available in many places, including pharmacies, gas stations, and head shops. While these stores are convenient, they might not carry items that are third-party lab tested, or have merchants with the knowledge base necessary to answer your questions. It's best to choose a reputable online retailer who proudly displays third-party lab reports for their premium CBD products, like Joy Organics!
Joy Organics CBD tinctures are formulated with the highest-quality ingredients. The main flavoring agent in every CBD tincture is organic essential oils. We also use organic carrier oils, such as extra virgin olive oil and MCT oil, that improve absorption and promote a smooth flavor.
CBD tinctures are used to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Phytocannabinoids in hemp extract interact with cannabinoid receptors located throughout our bodies. This interaction supports homeostasis (balance) throughout the body. Millions of people use CBD oil to find balance in their sleep patterns, support post-workout recovery, and maintain focus, among other benefits!
CBD tinctures are a fast-acting way to introduce hemp extract to your routine. Since they absorb quickly, CBD tinctures are ideal for sudden triggers, middle-of-the-night sleep support, and everyday discomfort.
CBD oil is hemp extract—a viscous oil enriched with phytocannabinoids, terpenes, and other beneficial molecules. When you mix CBD with another carrier oil, such as MCT oil or extra virgin olive oil, it becomes a tincture.
Alternately, some companies use alcohol to extract phytocannabinoids from hemp plant matter. Manufacturers then strain the mixture and bottle the alcohol and CBD oil combination as tinctures.
The most common way to take a CBD tincture is to draw the hemp extract into the dropper and release it into the mouth.
Using CBD tinctures is a versatile way of infusing wellness into your everyday routine. They can be taken alone, or they’re also excellent additions to baked goods, coffee, and salad dressings.
Our skin also has cannabinoid receptors and can benefit from a couple drops of CBD tincture added to your favorite lotion or shampoo!
Use the dropper to procure the extract. Take a dropperful in your mouth and swallow.
Both broad spectrum and full spectrum CBD tinctures promote synergistic benefits known as the entourage effect. The entourage effect makes for a more potent tincture and satisfactory experience. These benefits are due to the presence of other phytocannabinoids.
Full spectrum CBD products contain all naturally-occurring phytocannabinoids, including THC. At 0.3% THC or less, full spectrum hemp extract shouldn’t cause a high. Broad spectrum CBD oil has the THC removed but contains other phytocannabinoids that promote the entourage effect.
Joy Organics CBD tinctures are derived from hemp and should not elicit a psychoactive experience.
There are no known side effects to using CBD tinctures. Taking too much CBD oil might cause some drowsiness. It’s also suggested that those with liver conditions take smaller servings of CBD.
Everybody has different needs, tolerances, and preferences. We generally recommend one to two dropperful of CBD tincture per day. Take more as needed.
Feeling the effects of CBD tinctures is dependent on a person’s metabolism, diet, and tolerance to CBD. CBD tinctures work faster than other forms of CBD (such as gummies or softgels) because some of the phytocannabinoids get absorbed in the mouth. Some people might feel effects instantaneously, while others may need to wait anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour.
Since CBD tinctures are absorbed quicker, we metabolize the phytocannabinoids faster. While you can feel the benefits of most CBD products for up to eight hours, the benefits of CBD tinctures tend to last between four and six hours.
The half-life of CBD is one to two days. Depending on how much CBD you use, it might remain in your system for up to a week.
Store your CBD tincture in a dry area with little sunlight. If you follow proper storage methods, a CBD tincture can last about 18 months.
