What are Tinctures?


Tinctures are created using oil extracted from the hemp plant and a carrier oil, typically MCT oil. (medium-chain triglycerides) Extraction methods vary.


Full-spectrum CBD tinctures contain all the substances extracted from the cannabis plant alongside CBD. This includes other cannabinoids such as CBN, CBG, and trace amounts of THC, as well as terpenes, nutrients, flavonoids, chlorophyll, and other substances, many of which offer health benefits.


Broad-spectrum CBD tinctures contain all of the cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids, fatty acids, and other substances extracted from the hemp plant, and THC is removed to create a non-detectable THC.


A proprietary process that creates micelles in which the CBD is protected by a lipid layer, also known as lipid encapsulated, that protects the cannabinoids as it passes through the stomach acid and releases the cannabinoids once in the intestines, which significantly increases absorption and uptake by the body. Efficacy is based on its ability to form micelles-like particles that enhance absorption and bioavail­ability.


There are several types of ways to use water-soluble CBD. Scientists can turn CBD oil into a water-soluble substance and therefore increase its bioavailability in the body by 2-4x. The increase in bioavailability results in more CBD going into the circulatory system, boosting all of the positive effects. Water-soluble tinctures are considered to be beverage tinctures. Simply add the tincture to your favorite non-alcoholic drink and wait a few minutes. No stirring or shaking necessary.


Liposomes are one of the most common methods used to create water-soluble CBD oil. Tiny capsules measuring anywhere from 40 to 4000 nanometers in size contain the CBD oil in between a water-soluble (hydrophilic) layer and a water-insoluble (hydrophobic) layer.RE
