If the bitterness doesn’t bother you, you can take your tincture sublingually (under the tongue). Research suggests that substances taken sublingually are absorbed by the body faster [1] than other oral methods.

Since CBD is non-psychotropic and won’t get you high, it is legal in most places. Of course, it’s always best to check your local laws. Generally, if your CBD tincture is made with hemp (which contains little-to-no THC), you shouldn’t have a problem. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), CBD is not addictive, and is generally safe and well-tolerated.

Can You Use Oral CBD Oil or Tincture Topically?

When using CBD tinctures, many people report relaxing or rejuvenating effects. Tinctures offer all the benefits of CBD in a discreet, easy-to-consume format. They don’t need to be smoked or vaporized, and they can be easily added to food or administered under the tongue. The dropper bottles themselves are very small, making them easy to conceal in a purse or pocket. Because tinctures are taken a few drops at a time, it is easy to adjust your dose with precision.

Tinctures tend to be bitter. You can mask their bitterness by adding them to food and drink. Try adding a few drops of your CBD tincture to soup, salad dressing, coffee, or tea.

Their alcohol base gives CBD tinctures a few advantages:

CBD can be taken in many ways, from smoking a high-CBD strain to ingesting CBD capsules or edibles. The plethora of options can be overwhelming, even for seasoned aficionados. Here we’ll focus on CBD tinctures: what are they, what are their benefits, and how can you make a CBD tincture at home? Here’s everything you need to know.

To be honest, this is a really simple recipe. Just like making a regular herbal tincture, all you really need is plant material (a high CBD cannabis variety in this case, we like to use Harlequin or ACDC) and a high proof neutral spirit like vodka.

FlowerChild has several CBD tinctures to choose from, each with different strengths and medicinal benefits. They also carry CBG tincture if you are interested in that. There is even one made just for pets!

If you aren’t able to make your own tincture, I have found an amazing place to buy super high quality organic CBD products! I searched high and low for a cannabis company I could recommend, and Flower Child CBD is it.

How to Use Cannabis CBD Tincture

If you are interested in growing your own I recommend buying seeds from Seedsman. They have a large selection of high CBD varieties and ship to nearly everywhere.

Before making this tincture, the first step is to decarboxylate the buds which will help to make the CBD more bioavailable. You can see my process for how to do that in my CBD infused oil post (don’t worry, it’s a lot easier than it sounds!).

They are an Colorado company, where recreational marijuana is legal, but they use pure CBD extract from organic hemp, so they are able to ship their products nationwide!

The tincture can be left to infuse for several months if you want, it won’t ever go bad and will continue to get stronger.
