A CBD tincture is also known as a cannabis-infused drink, tea or candy. A CBD tincture is essentially a mixture of CBD oil and other organic herbal extracts. This can be made from several different plants including, but not limited to, indicas, sativas, kush and rudolphs.
A CBD tincture, however, is not meant for consumption by itself as an herbal supplement. Instead, they are often used in conjunction with other herbal and plant extracts. However, a tincture is actually composed of three main components which include, cannabidiol (CBD), terpenoids and flavonoids. An entire cupful of these components can produce a very potent tincture, which can be taken by mouth in order to experience many of the same benefits as the pure CBD oil.
In order to get the most out of these tinctures, you want to make sure that they contain at least two different potencies of CBD. Ideally, a CBD tincture would contain CBD in one to four percentage points higher than the CBD content in the product being purchased. Generally speaking, CBD tincture products are available in different strengths from two percent to twelve percent CBD, which is about twice as much as the potency found in most CBD capsules. CBD tincture products are also available in several different flavors including fruity, sweet, fruity and sour.
Like all organic substances, these extracts can produce varying results based on various physiological experiences and physical activities. For example, an eight percent CBD tincture might be more potent than a two percent CBD tincture when consumed as tea. Because the tincture itself is much lower than the concentrated CBD content of the pure CBD capsule, it is usually diluted so that a desired level of CBD is achieved when ingested.
Because of this, it is often used as a supplement in the treatment of several different psychological states. For example, a person might want to supplement with a CBD tincture to alleviate symptoms of depression after suffering a traumatic event in their life such as the death of a loved one. Some studies have shown that people who consume CBD tinctures have reduced levels of stress hormones during periods of high stress such as those found during major career transitions.
Because of the nature of CBD, it is also commonly used to treat children with seizures. This substance can have a relaxing effect on the nervous system and can reduce the frequency of seizures in a child with severe epilepsy. This is due to the fact that the material in the CBD molecule is able to enter the brain and influence the excitability of neurons which causes the brain to release natural chemicals that relieve some of the symptoms of seizures. While there are currently no studies that directly link the effectiveness of CBD tincture to autism, there are a number of anecdotal stories of successful results in children using it to treat these conditions.
