But what makes a really good gift worth giving this season? (And no, we're not talking about that matching pair of socks and pajamas you've gotten all of your loved ones for the fifth year in a row.)

(Or any other holiday drink. No, seriously, give us your recommendations! Non-denominational drinks encouraged to apply!)
Tinctures vs. oils
If you're new to the CBD world, then welcome! This must be a little overwhelming for you!
But no need to fret or cry internally. We've got you covered. First off, let's go over one big misconception when it comes to tinctures and oils. (Then we'll get to the good stuff!)
A lot of folks think that tinctures and oils are the same thing. After all, the two terms are used interchangeably and both use an eye-dropper-type for application.
But that's where their similarities end. So let's look at the process of how each of them are made.
How tinctures and oils are made
A tincture is made by soaking the cannabis plant in alcohol. Whereas cannabis oil is made by suspending CBD in a carrier oil like coconut oil or olive oil.
It's a small difference. But it's important to know how your CBD products are made!
Besides, you want to learn something new everyday, right? So consider this your one-stop shopping for holiday gifts and personal development!
What's the difference between CBD and THC?
Both have been getting some wonderful attention as of late. But let's break down these compounds just a little further as there is a huge difference as to what these cannabinoids provide.
(Get it? Break down? Compounds? Okay, we see one person laughing in the back so it was worth it!)
When it comes to the natural compounds found in cannabis products, CBD is the star player. It's an active ingredient found in the hemp and cannabis plant along with other cannabinoids. And it is federally legal and FDA-approved.
THC is a cannabinoid that possesses psychoactive effects and may even produce intoxicating effects as well. A typical CBD product on the market will contain less than 0.3% of THC in order to remain legal at the federal level under the Food and Drug Administration.
Too much THC is still considered illegal. That being said, prescription medications that have been medically reviewed like medical cannabis and medical marijuana may contain more than just trace amounts of THC.
Getting the right CBD:THC ratio
For products that contain both THC and CBD, you'll want to understand the ratio just to know what you'll get when you're taking CBD. So, after you...
1:1 CBD-THC ratio
A 1:1 ratio is exactly what it sounds like. Equal parts both CBD and THC.
Some say this adds to the potency of the formula. So, as with all tinctures and CBD oil, it's important to start small and go slow. Just listen to your body through the process.
2:1, 4:1, 5:1 CBD-THC ratio
Balancing THC and CBD in this way often leads to optimized levels of both compounds in your cannabis products. In fact, this ratio is most commonly used in medical marijuana.
This kind of ratio is a typical one amongst cannabis products. So it's a safe range for you to explore.
10:1 CBD-THC ratio
If you're looking for a CBD oil with very low THC levels, consider a ratio with more CBD than THC. Especially if you're not looking for any psychoactive properties.
Again, everyone will be looking for something different in their cannabis products. So even if the ratio is not clearly labeled, contact the CBD company directly to get the most information you can.
20:1 CBD-THC ratio
You can even go one step further in your CBD to THC ratio. This way, you'll only get trace amounts of THC in your product.
As with the 1:1 ratio, still be sure to start small. Then gradually increase based on how your body responds.
Which THC-CBD tincture should I get?
Okay, it's not that we're biased. But in our opinion, these are the best CBD and THC tinctures for you to try out on the market today.
(Okay, we might be a little biased. But we're not ashamed of tooting our own horn!)
