What are CBD tinctures?

The word 'tincture' refers to all drugs that are stored in alcohol. Although derived from hemp, CBD tinctures are not the same as CBD oil.

One can consume tinctures in the same trend as CBD oil, that is, sublingual (under the tongue). Unlike CBD oil, tinctures have lower CBD potency. Tinctures have a long shelf life and the dosage varies from user to users. The ratio of CBD in tincture is lower compared to oil. It is mainly due to the addition of other substances to improve the taste.

CBD, or cannabidiol, is a substance that has innumerable medical uses and can be isolated and distributed in the form of cannabidiol oil, or CBD oil.
