What Are CBD Tinctures and How to Use Them
For thousands of years, practitioners of medicine sought ways to emerge victorious when fighting sickness and disease. Even though cannabis has been a part of civilization for thousands of years, only recently have the benefits of CBD been thoroughly researched by the medical and scientific communities.
Currently, there is not a broadly accepted correct medical suggested serving for CBD. As a result, the marketplace is full of rough estimates and conjecture. Unfortunately for patients concerned about health and wellness issues, determining the proper serving of CBD to maintain a normal state of health is often a matter of trial and error.
Though there are online calculators and systems in place that provide highly general CBD dosage guidelines, we hope this guide will provide our new and existing CBD customers with an initial foundation.
Afterward, we will dig deeper into the many variables at play when it comes to using CBD tinctures effectively.
What is a CBD Tincture?
A CBD tincture is a liquid dietary supplement that is highly concentrated with CBD oil.
For many, CBD tinctures are the ideal way to take CBD due to its convenience and speed of absorption.
If made properly, CBD tinctures start with high-quality industrial hemp that leads to high-quality CBD oil. The stalk, flowers, and leaves are all harvested. The CBD content that is taken from the plant is sent to a facility for processing and extraction.
A solvent can be used to pull the CBD and other cannabinoids from the plant although carbon dioxide extraction is the preferred method used by some of the top tier manufacturers of CBD oil. Liquid carbon dioxide is forced through the processed material from the plant, then removed.
What remains is pure quality CBD oil.
The CBD oil is tested and blended with another carrier oil (i.e. olive, grapeseed, or coconut) to give it a designated strength and flavor.
An important distinction must be made between CBD tinctures and cannabis tinctures. Typically, the former has most of THC removed in order to reduce the amount to .3%, the legal limit per the 2018 Farm Bill Act. Cannabis, on the other hand, maintains all the cannabinoids including THC.
Tinctures come in a variety of forms, so for this guide, we will keep the subject matter specifically related to CBD.
There are multiple ways to ingest or apply CBD products that are derived from hemp or cannabis:
- Wearing a patch
- Applying as a topical cream or salve
- Inserting as a suppository
- Taking as tincture
CBD Tinctures may be an unfamiliar concept to many unless you grew up with them. When one thinks of CBD or cannabis, they likely are not thinking of tinctures.
Today’s social and economic climate are clear indicators that the demand for CBD exists and that CBD demand is growing weekly. Taking this into consideration, it is difficult to understand why so many physicians are reluctant to suggest cannabinoids as a viable option to manage their patients’ health conditions.
There appear to be two main reasons for this.
Doctors and other licensed professionals are prohibited from prescribing cannabis or hemp. In many states, physicians and other licensed professionals can certify people for a medical cannabis card. With hemp, physicians are not able to suggest this because there is no recommended daily allowance set forth by the Food and Drug Administration. But unlike cannabis-derived products, hemp-derived CBD products are more readily available to consumers.
Also, most medical schools do not offer cannabinoid therapy coursework as part of their pharmacology curriculum. Curricula that educate medical students about drugs primarily concentrate on substances that have a patent or can be patented.
Now that we have addressed what CBD tinctures are, let us evaluate the benefits of using CBD tinctures.
The Advantages of Using CBD Tinctures
Anything that would be supplemented with regular CBD oil can be used with tinctures as well. The tincture is highly concentrated, so you will only need to use a small serving.
Tinctures and CBD, in general, can be used to promote and maintain a healthy lifestyle and a normal state of everyday health.
As always, it is recommended that you consult with a licensed medical professional before embarking on a health care regimen that involves CBD.
CBD Tinctures have several practical advantages over other methods of administering CBD:
- CBD Tinctures are easy to carry
- CBD Tinctures do not have a bad odor
- CBD Tinctures are discrete
- CBD Tinctures are easy to store
- CBD Tinctures mix easily with other foods or drinks
- CBD Tinctures typically have a long shelf life if stored properly
- CBD Tinctures are fast absorbing
- CBD Tinctures come in different flavors
CBD Tinctures have very few disadvantages. Since the natural flavor CBD Tincture isn’t always the best we recommend a flavored CBD Tincture like mint or orange which both taste great! CBD Tinctures must be kept away from direct sunlight or they will degrade. Additionally, CBD Tinctures must be shaken well otherwise, they can congeal.
In an effort to save a few dollars, some individuals, perhaps foolishly, attempt to make their own CBD tinctures.
However, there are several downsides to the DIY (do it yourself) CBD Tincture strategy. One of the methods used in creating your own CBD tincture involves heating cannabis to make the CBD tincture more potent.
A key ingredient needed for the “home herbalist” is alcohol that has a high proof. The alcohol is needed to separate the cannabinoids and other materials from the plant itself.
Heat and high-proof alcohol are a very dangerous combination. Additionally, strong alcohol adversely affects the taste of the CBD tincture and creates a very strong burning sensation. This can be a very uncomfortable sensation when taken or applied orally.
At the very least, you should purchase CBD tinctures instead of making them primarily for safety reasons. A reputable company like Palm Organix™ uses high-quality CBD oil and has each batch of CBD tinctures tested by an independent third-party lab.
You now know what CBD tinctures are, and their advantages, but how much CBD should you take?
The Proper Serving of CBD Using Tinctures
The CBD industry is in a state of flux regarding federal regulations. As a result, the Food and Drug Administration has not established guidelines on the proper serving for CBD tinctures or any other CBD oil products.
Consumers are estimating their servings based on the recommendations from certain CBD brands, or the company from which they bought their CBD. The worst-case scenario is that someone bases their dosage on the recommendation of a friend who considers themselves to be an expert on all things cannabis-related.
For the most part, tinctures of CBD oil come in dropper bottles. Regardless of the brand you decide to purchase, we suggest you verify the milligrams of CBD in the entire CBD tincture bottle and in each serving. This information is required on all CBD tincture products as part of the label specifications and also applies to all CBD products manufactured.
The tricky part is that CBD tinctures are available in different sizes and concentrations. For example, a 30ml CBD tincture bottle may contain 500 mg of CBD. Yet another 30ml CBD tincture bottle may only have 300 milligrams.
In other words, there is no “right size fits all” method when using CBD tinctures. There are different factors involved such as:
- The CBD concentration in a product
- A person’s body weight
- The magnitude of the condition one is concerned about
- The individual’s sensitivity to CBD
Considering the factors above, there will be a bit of trial and error when determining the proper CBD serving to consume.
A common question we receive often revolves around the best time of day to use a CBD tincture.
If you are taking CBD for the first time, we recommend you start slow and gradually grow your CBD serving. Though CBD does not make you drowsy, due to CBD’s calming effects, it is quite possible you may become extremely relaxed from consuming high amounts of CBD.
Furthermore, as a person matures and their bodies change, so do the receptors in his or her endocannabinoid system. Therefore, if a person finds their optimal serving of CBD when they are 30, the same CBD serving may not be ideal as they age.
The enormous amount of CBD brands and options on the market create a realm of confusion for someone shopping for quality CBD products, so one will have to endure some experimentation while they find and adjust the CBD serving that is best suited for their needs.

Palm Organix provides the option to choose between two flavors for your CBD Tinctures. For those mint lovers out there, we have you covered with our mint flavored CBD Tinctures. If the mint flavor is too overbearing for you, do not worry we also have orange flavored CBD Tinctures.
After choosing the CBD Tincture flavor, you will be presented with several options of milligrams. The 30 ml CBD Tincture bottle will contain 500mg, 1000mg, or 1500mg depending on your preference. Palm Organix Team recommends starting with the 500mg first to get a better understanding of how much CBD you will need on a daily basis.
