CBD Tinctures Guide: Uses, Benefits, Servings, and More

For those who are unsure what CBD tinctures are, we have created a comprehensive CBD tinctures guide. This guide is made for those who are curious about CBD tinctures and would like to learn more before getting started. Read on to learn about how to use CBD tinctures, what some possible benefits are, what a proper CBD tincture serving is, and much more!

Some of the most popular CBD oil products come in liquid form, including tinctures.

CBD tinctures are liquid-form cannabidiol oil products that are made by combining hemp-derived CBD oil with vegetable glycerin or another type of nutritious oil. This combination creates a liquid-form CBD product that makes it very simple to add CBD to your daily health routine.

CBD tinctures are a great choice for both CBD beginners and CBD enthusiasts looking to increase their intake throughout the day. In this easy-to-follow CBD tinctures guide, we lay out everything you need to know about these popular CBD products so that you can decide whether they’re the right CBD product for you.

What is a CBD Tincture?

Cannabinoid products such as CBD tinctures and CBD liquids allow users to ingest our award-winning CBD oil in a versatile liquid form. CBD tinctures and liquids are made by blending high-quality hemp-derived CBD oil with other nutritious oils or vegetable glycerine. 

CBD oil that’s been extracted from the plant naturally has a viscous consistency, so CBD tinctures combine CBD oil with another more liquified nutritious oil to make it easier to get your daily serving of CBD.

What is the Difference Between CBD Oil and CBD Tinctures?

Those new to CBD are often curious about the differences between CBD oil and CBD tinctures. CBD oil is the pure extract of the native hemp plant, with no additives to dilute the purity of the extract. A CBD tincture, on the other hand, combines that pure extract with another nutritious oil.

By adding nutritious oil, CBD tinctures can also be infused with natural flavoring. This makes CBD tinctures a much more approachable product for CBD beginners, as CBD liquids often have an earthy and natural flavor that may not be palatable for everyone.

However, that does not mean that CBD tinctures are only for first-time CBD users. Experienced CBD users are drawn to CBD tinctures because of how versatile they are, allowing individuals to ingest CBD in a variety of ways.

CBD Tincture Effects and Benefits

CBD tinctures and liquids are used as a daily wellness product in order to support the overall balance of our bodies.

More specifically, CBD tinctures support the endocannabinoid system (ECS), which is a system in the human body that primarily works to regulate and maintain balance. The ECS uses chemical messengers to keep your body functioning at its peak, regulating a wide range of functions. An endocannabinoid system that is operating on all cylinders can help your body optimize its efficiency and stay balanced, allowing you to feel your best.

So what does CBD tincture do? Once absorbed into the bloodstream, the CBD found in CBD tinctures supports the regulations of your bodily functions through interactions with cannabinoid receptors found within your body.

CBD shares a similar molecular structure to the body’s own naturally occurring endocannabinoids, which allows CBD to interact with the endocannabinoid system and its receptors. By stimulating these receptors, CBD helps activate the endocannabinoid system, allowing your body to maintain homeostasis.

Do CBD Tinctures Have Intoxicating Properties?

CBD tinctures do not have any intoxicating properties and will not result in any psychoactive effects. Hemp oil tinctures contain no more than trace levels of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which is the psychoactive compound present in marijuana that produces euphoric properties.

Therefore, the lack of THC in CBD tinctures means that the product is non-intoxicating and you can incorporate the natural benefits of CBD oil tinctures into your daily health routine without any concern that they will cause euphoric effects.

Our CBD oil tinctures and CBD liquids contain no more than 0.3% THC, far below the amount needed to cause intoxication. If you would prefer to avoid all exposure to detectable THC, we provide CBD tinctures and CBD liquids made from 99% pure CBD isolate. Our RSHO-X™ Liquid contains no measurable amounts of THC.

Advantages of CBD Tinctures

Hemp oil tinctures and liquids offer a number of CBD oil benefits that make them popular choices for both CBD beginners and experienced consumers. Below we continue our CBD tinctures guide by explaining a few of the primary advantages CBD tinctures offer.

Easily Adjustable CBD Serving Sizes

Unlike premeasured CBD products, CBD tinctures put the power in the user’s hands. You get to determine exactly how much CBD you will consume at any given time, letting you decide for yourself the ideal daily CBD serving for your specific needs.

CBD Tinctures are Versatile

CBD liquids and tinctures offer greater versatility than many other types of CBD products. CBD tincture uses are vast, as you can place the liquid extract beneath your tongue, add a drop of CBD to your meals, or simply swallow the CBD tincture.

CBD Tinctures Offer an Affordable CBD Option

If you are new to CBD, CBD tinctures offer an affordable starting point. Not only is the price point low, but CBD tinctures also let new users start with a CBD product that has a low concentration of CBD, allowing them to determine their ideal serving size.

CBD Tinctures Offer Excellent CBD Absorption

CBD liquids and tinctures are often formulated with MCT oil, an oil that helps CBD absorb into the bloodstream. By combining MCT oil with CBD, CBD liquids and tinctures assure that a higher percentage of CBD finds its way into your bloodstream, while also boosting the rate of absorption.

CBD Tinctures Do Not Need to Be Refrigerated

CBD tinctures and liquids don’t need to be refrigerated after opening, so you can keep them where you are most likely to need them. Whether you are working, exercising at the gym, driving your kids to school, or lying in bed, you can store a CBD tincture easily within reach without worrying about the product going bad.

An Easily Portable CBD Product

CBD tinctures come in ultra-compact bottles with a convenient dropper top, allowing you to easily take your CBD with you. Whether that means taking CBD tinctures with you when you travel or during your day-to-day errands, the lightweight bottle will never be a hindrance.

CBD Tinctures Come in Delicious Flavors

CBD tinctures are available in various all-natural flavors that are delicious and delightful to consume. Some of our most popular flavors include cooling peppermint, sweet strawberry, and creamy vanilla.

Recommended CBD Tinctures Guide

CBD Oil Tinctures

Our CBD tinctures combine CBD oil and medium-chain triglyceride (MCT) oil. The MCT oil found in these CBD tinctures comes from wholesome organic coconut oil and provides healthy fatty acids while helping the body better absorb CBD.

Providing roughly 4-16 mg of CBD per serving, CBD oil tinctures offer the lowest CBD concentration of hemp oil products, making them a popular choice for those just starting out with CBD.

Below, take a look at our recommended CBD tinctures guide to help you find the perfect CBD tincture for you. Choose between reputable CBD brands such as Real Scientific Hemp Oil® (RSHO®) and Dixie Botanicals®.

Green Label RSHO® CBD Tincture

Our Green Label CBD tincture from RSHO® combines our raw full-spectrum CBD oil with MCT oil extracted from coconut oil. The Green Label is an excellent source of fatty acids, as well as CBD.

Blue Label RSHO® Tincture

Our Blue Label CBD tincture blends MCT oil with CBD oil that has been decarboxylated, a heating process that increases CBD concentration while retaining the many nutrients found in hemp.

Gold Label RSHO® Tincture

Along with MCT oil, the Gold Label CBD tincture contains CBD oil that has been decarboxylated. However, Gold Label tincture also purifies the CBD oil to remove excess plant material, offering a more refined taste.

Dixie Botanicals® Dew Drop Tincture

Blending our broad-spectrum CBD oil with MCT oil, Dew Drop tinctures are vegan and soy-free. These popular low dose tinctures come in a variety of natural flavor options, including vanilla, strawberry, tangerine, and peppermint, giving users a more enjoyable CBD experience.


Recommended CBD Liquids Guide

Medical Marijuana, Inc. RSHO® Liquids are created by mixing our popular CBD oil with MCT oil, providing high concentrations of CBD along with essential vitamins, minerals, and fatty acids.

RSHO® Liquid comes in four different options, allowing users to choose the type of CBD liquid that best suits their specific needs. These CBD liquids are essentially CBD tinctures that are packaged in larger bottles for a more efficient everyday CBD serving routine. Below, learn more about our four recommended RSHO® CBD Liquids. All RSHO® Liquids come in an amber glass jar for optimal preservation.

Green Label CBD Liquid

Our Green Label Liquid contains unadulterated, raw hemp oil extracted straight from the hemp plant. Having not undergone any filtration or decarboxylation process, Green Label is naturally higher in cannabidiolic acid (CBDa) and contains many other essential vitamins, minerals, fatty acids, and the other natural components of hemp.

Blue Label CBD Liquid

Blue Label Liquid contains hemp oil that is decarboxylated, a heating process that converts the CBDa in raw hemp oil into active CBD to increase the oil’s CBD content. Blue Label retains hemp’s valuable chlorophyll, dietary nutrients, and other plant materials.

Gold Label CBD Liquid

The hemp oil found in our Gold Label RSHO® Liquid is decarboxylated and has been put through an additional clean filtering process that eliminates most of the plant material.

RSHO-X™ CBD Liquid

RSHO-X™ CBD Liquid is a popular cannabidiol oil product that is made with 99% pure CBD isolate, rather than full-spectrum hemp oil. This allows this product to offer the versatility of a CBD liquid without any measurable amounts of THC.


How to Use CBD Tinctures

CBD tinctures and liquids are popular types of CBD products for people of all ages because of how easy they are to use. As a versatile liquid, both CBD tinctures and CBD liquids can be taken in multiple ways. Below, our CBD tinctures guide provides instructions on the three main ways to use CBD tinctures.

Placed Under the Tongue

For the fastest possible absorption, place the liquid under your tongue for 60-90 seconds. You can then swallow any remaining CBD, which will be absorbed through the digestive system.

Swallowed on Their Own

When you swallow to ingest CBD tinctures and CBD liquids, the CBD passes through your digestive tract before being delivered to your bloodstream.

Blended Into Foods and Drinks

CBD liquids, in particular, lend themselves well to any prepared food or beverage. Add your serving of CBD to soups, dressings, or a morning smoothie. However, try to avoid cooking with CBD products because exposing CBD oil to high heat can diminish its potency.

What is the Best Way to Use CBD Liquids?

There is reason to believe that taking your RSHO® Liquid with food may increase its efficacy. A study on a sprayable cannabinoid product that was absorbed first sublingually and then in the digestive tract after being swallowed demonstrated the positive effects of eating before taking a CBD product. The results of the study showed that bioavailability was 4-fold higher for CBD when taken after a meal. Therefore, to maximize the efficiency of your CBD liquids, you want to use CBD with food.

CBD Tincture Serving Suggestions

Our CBD tinctures guide would be incomplete without diving into the topic of how much CBD tincture you should take. There is no perfect “serving” of CBD tinctures in the traditional sense. The right serving size of CBD oil tinctures depends on your individual needs and preferences. Ultimately, the amount of hemp oil tincture you take every day is up to you.

The FDA, which is ultimately responsible for defining Recommended Daily Intake (RDI), has not yet created an RDI for CBD oil products like CBD tinctures. To comply with FDA regulations, we do not list an RDI of our own.

However, to help provide some guidance as you first start taking your CBD product, Medical Marijuana, Inc. does offer suggested CBD tincture serving sizes, available on the labels of each of our hemp oil tincture products. These suggested CBD tincture servings are meant to serve as a starting point, to help you figure out the right CBD tincture serving for you and your individual wellness needs.

Our “suggested serving size” of CBD tincture and CBD liquid varies depending on the product. You’ll find the following serving suggestions on the label of each of our products:

  • Dixie Botanicals® Dew Drops CBD Tinctures (1-Ounce Bottle): Half a dropper, or 1 mL
  • Dixie Botanicals® Dew Drops CBD Tinctures (2-Ounce Bottle): 2 droppers, or 2 mL
  • RSHO® Blue Label CBD Hemp Oil Tincture: ¼ teaspoon
  • RSHO® Green Label and Gold Label CBD Hemp Oil Tinctures: 1 full dropper, or 1 mL
  • RSHO® Green Label, Blue Label, Gold Label Liquids & RSHO-X™: ¾ teaspoon

When starting a new CBD tincture routine, it is best to begin with a small serving size and then gradually increase your daily intake as needed. How much you increase your CBD serving will depend on how you feel. It can take a couple of minutes to a couple of hours for the natural CBD tincture effects to appear, depending on whether you swallow it or take it under your tongue.

Keep in mind, there is no one ideal CBD tincture serving, and the serving size that is the ideal amount of cannabinoid oil for you can often be different than the amount that works for others. This “start low, go slow” CBD tincture serving technique will help you comfortably find the right amount of daily CBD for you.
