CBD Tincture

WHAT ARE CBD TINCTURES?

A CBD tincture is a dietary supplement that comes in liquid form and has a very potent cannabidiol content. Tinctures are created by steeping CBD-rich hemp flowers in high-proof grain alcohol, then cooking over low heat for multiple hours. Vinegar or glycerin can be used in lieu of alcohol, but alcohol really does produce the best tincture in the end. It’s time-consuming but very simple.

Once the liquid is ready, it’s commonly mixed with a sweet tasting carrier oil like orange or peppermint. On its own, it can be very bitter. The final product should be potent, with a very high CBD content and no more than 0.3% THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol). When shopping, keep in mind that a CBD tincture varies greatly from a cannabis tincture, which has all the cannabinoids including THC. A CBD tincture will not be psychoactive, meaning it won’t get you high.

HOW TO USE A TINCTURE

Since tinctures are concentrated, it’s supposed to be taken in very small doses. Most come with a built-in mL dropper, but some people use an eye dropper. Taking too much won’t cause an overdose or anything like that, but huge doses are often unneeded by most therapeutic CBD users. If more is needed, it is a simple case of having a few more drops.

Many patients can’t get past the bitterness, so they mix it with food and beverages. It’s most commonly added to soup, salad dressing, coffee, and tea. Others take it sublingually, meaning underneath the tongue. Research suggests that substances taken sublingually are absorbed by the body faster than with other oral methods.

When dosing a CBD tincture sublingually, make sure to actually hold the tincture under your tongue for at least a minute to allow it to absorb, before swallowing the rest. The membrane under your tongue allows for absorption by your sublingual artery. From there it will travel to your external carotid artery, then through the internal carotid artery, and into your brain. Effects can start to take place in about 15 minutes.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?

CBD tinctures can be used to supplement anything that would be supplemented with regular CBD oil. Because the tincture is concentrated, it will have the same effects, but you’ll only have to use a small dose. Tinctures, and CBD, in general, can be used to supplement a healthy lifestyle, as well as support the management of various conditions — though always consult a medical professional. CBD is being investigated as a strong anti-inflammatory and antiseptic compound.

Tinctures can have some major practical advantages as well. For example, tinctures are easy to consume discreetly throughout the day since they require no prep work and don’t need to be smoked or vaporized. The dropper bottles themselves are very small and easy to conceal in a purse or pocket. It’s high concentration also plays into the convenience. Since only small amounts are needed, it’s easy to adjust your daily dose with absolute precision.

STIG VS JUUL POD VAPE

Are there any alternatives to the Juul?

 
The Juul pod-system e-cigarette hit the vaping scene back in 2015, and has been steadily climbing to the top ever since. That being said, 2017-2018 is where Juul really flourished and grew into the vaping behemoth it is today. 
 
The question is – are there more affordable alternatives to the Juul?
 
The Juul line of products are extremely high quality, and simply just WORK. No need to replace old coils, or refill with e-juice – just simply pop the Juul Pod in and you’re ready to vape. The success of Juul may arguably be due to the ease of use, allowing both advanced and beginner users with a hassle-free experience.
 
That being said, using a Juul does come with a cost – and to many users, it can be a little too expensive. There are more than a few alternatives to the Juul pod-system e-cigarette, though one that really seems to stand out is the Stig product line by VGod.
 

Product Comparison:

Juul
– Magnetic charger
– 0.7ml salt nicotine juice capacity
– Roughly 200 puffs per pod

– 59mg/ml of nicotine
– Starter pack comes with 4 pods
– Roughly 64.99 CAD for the starter kit
– Roughly 22.99 CAD for replacement pods

 

Stig
– Disposable
– Fully charged out of the box
– 1.2ml salt nicotine juice capacity
– Roughly 270 puffs per Stig stick

– 60mg/ml of nicotine
– 3 Stig sticks per pack
– Roughly 24.99 CAD before tax

The main advantage of using the Stig vs the Juul is that you get a new device every time. Each Stig pack comes with 3 sticks, all of which are fully charged. When the device stops working, simply open up another stick and keep vaping! Vaporizers go through so much wear and tear – either being dropped, or lost all together. With the Stig, this isn’t so much of a problem due to the low price point, and the amount of sticks you receive for that price!

On the other hand, the Juul offers a unique touch function that enables the user to view the battery life via a LED light on the device. Another neat feature is the included magnetic charger, which holds the device upright while charging.

In conclusion, both devices are fantastic, and ultimately what you purchase does depend on what you’re looking for. With the Juul, you get a very high-quality feeling product with fantastic flavors. There’s a bit of customization too, with wrist straps or skins available to change the overall look of your device. With the Stig, you get a cheaper, disposable alternative that offers a very similar experience (their flavors are fantastic as well) without all the bells and whistles. Both devices are extremely easy to use, and either choice will be a good one.
