What is a CBD Tincture? [The Informative Guide]
The days of being forced to cover up your use of marijuana extracts are gone in states where weed is legal for recreational use. Moreover, cannabidiol (CBD), the non-intoxicating compound of marijuana, is legal in most states and can be shipped across state lines so long as it is made from industrial hemp and contains minimal THC.
As CBD interacts with the body’s endocannabinoid system, it has the potential to alleviate a number of medical conditions including chronic pain, epilepsy, anxiety, and depression. Research is ongoing, but early results are extremely promising. As CBD doesn’t produce the psychoactive ‘high’ associated with THC, it can be used by children and pets.
A CBD oil tincture is one of the most popular methods of consuming the cannabinoid, particularly amongst first-time users. As long as you choose a pure CBD tincture, you’ll find that it works much faster than edibles, for example. There is a school of thought which suggests that CBD administered orally via oils or tinctures is more effective than other forms of dosing for conditions such as social anxiety disorder. A 2016 report* by Scott Shannon determined that CBD oil alleviates symptoms of insomnia and anxiety when taken orally.Overall Health: 2.5 – 15mg. MS Symptoms: 2.5 – 120mg plus the same amount of THC. Schizophrenia: 40 – 1000mg. Dry Mouth: Activation of cannabinoid receptors alter the salivary production of the submandibular glands, which can result in cotton mouth. Drowsiness: This typically only happens in extremely high doses. Light-headedness: A drop in blood pressure is normally the culprit here. However, it is a temporary issue normally resolved by drinking a cup of tea or coffee. Increased Tremors in Parkinson’s Patients: According to preliminary research, very high doses of CBD could worsen muscle movement and tremor in Parkinson’s patients. However, others studies indicate that such individuals tolerate CBD rather well. Inhibition of Hepatic Drug Metabolism: CBD could inhibit the activity of liver enzymes known as cytochrome P450. This enzyme family metabolizes most pharmaceutical drugs and if you take high doses of CBD, it may neutralize P450 activity and change the way drugs are metabolized in your body. For the record, eating a small portion of grapefruit has a similar effect, so perhaps this isn’t one of the worst side effects of CBD oil!
