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!)
Are tinctures and oils the same thing?
No. 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 combining CBD with alcohol - namely, soaking the cannabis plant in alcohol. Whereas cannabis oil is made by suspending CBD in a carrier oil like coconut oil, sunflower oil, or olive oil.
(Another good thing to look out for in the case of potential allergens.)
Why does this difference matter?
It's a small difference. But when buying CBD, you want to know exactly what's in your products. And what's in the carrier oil too.
Besides, you want to learn something new everyday, right? So consider this your one-stop shopping for full spectrum tincture gifts and personal development!
What's the difference between CBD and THC?
Both THC and CBD 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. Federal law has made CBD legal, though state laws may vary.
Remember to check your local laws before consuming CBD. Just to ensure that you are compliant with any regulations within your surrounding area.
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 percent of THC in order to remain legal at the federal level under the Federal Food and Drug Administration.
Too much THC is still considered illegal under the Controlled Substances Act. That being said, prescription medications for marijuana products 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
Not all oils and tinctures will contain both CBD and THC. In fact, some contain only CBD, otherwise known as CBD isolate.
And then, of course, there's broad spectrum and full spectrum to consider. But we're getting ahead of ourselves.
All you need to know now is that products that contain both THC and CBD will come in different ratios. And understanding these ratios when taking CBD will greatly help you understand what exactly you're taking in.
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, like you would with CBD gummies.
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 tandem with a carrier oil. 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 THC and CBD 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!)
