As cannabis–based products become more widely available and accepted, it’s natural to have questions. After all, a lot of the products on the market today weren’t around just a couple of years ago. While cannabinoids like CBD show a lot of promise of support in health and wellness, it can be hard to know how to introduce them into an existing daily routine. Today, we explore the role CBD tinctures can play in your well-being.

CBD can be administered in many forms, from smoking a cannabis strain that produces a lot of the CBD molecule, to consuming it in edibles. Among the most popular methods—especially for individuals trying a cannabis-based product for the first time—is through a tincture.

Tinctures are produced by steeping cannabis flowers or isolates in a high-proof grain alcohol, then applying low heat for a significant span of time. This allows the active compounds in cannabis to infuse into the neutral spirit, much of which is then boiled off. The result is a potent liquid that delivers the effects of the cannabinoid molecules without any smoking or other form of combustion. In the growing consumer market, producers will often add carrier oils and other complementary ingredients, such as a citrus oil to improve the taste of a tincture.
