Tinctures vs Oil: What’s the Difference and Does It Matter?

Many think that both tinctures and CBD oil are the same. They are not. They are made differently, have different properties, and how the product works – so it’s necessary to compare the difference between both, to decide which consumption method fits your needs.

A History of CBD

In recent years, it’s safe to say that cannabidiol (also known as CBD), has become increasingly popular in aiding health conditions and general wellbeing. Of all the cannabinoids found within the cannabis plant, CBD has shown to have the most potent healing properties according to some studies. Due to its non-psychoactive state, CBD is often patient preferred as well.

With CBD, patients find health benefits without users having to feel high.

Some of the most notable benefits include improvements to the mood and a boost in metabolism, disease immunity and pain relief, improved sleep and appetite, and memory retention too.

The best part is that CBD comes in many forms. Edibles and vapes, beauty products and even topical forms are all widely available. CBD oil and CBD tinctures tend to be the most popular.

What Is CBD Oil?

First of all, it seems to be that CBD oil is the most popular cannabidiol used for medicinal purposes. The oil is extracted from the cannabis plant, and in some cases, extractors will take pure CBD from the hemp plants, while others will extract every form of potential cannabinoid found. Typically, CBD oil is the most potent of all CBD forms, and because of that, it can be the most expensive.

Tinctures vs CBD Oil

In terms of use, CBD oil is consumed sublingually. This means that it is placed under the tongue and absorbed into the body via the muses membranes. It’s the fastest way of absorption. CBD oil can be swallowed. However, it may take longer to digest. In terms of taste, it can be earthy and nutty. If the taste isn’t enjoyable, add it to food for consumption.

How tinctures differ and may benefit

It’s worth noting that CBD tincture is less dynamic compared to the oil itself. Due to this, cannabis tinctures tend to be less expensive compared to CBD oil. Tinctures often have added flavor for a taste like our Honey Cinnamon Tincture.

Often the biggest difference between tinctures and pure CBD oil products are some elements of THC included in the tinctures to help activate the CBD properties. A 20:1 tincture works as a minor partner with CBD to balance its psychoactive effects

Common traits & benefits

Both consumption methods are discreet, have little to no psychoactive effects, and help with inflammation. For intake, CBD oils and tinctures can be taken sublingually but oils tend to lack the added taste of some tinctures.

Overall, it comes down to THC preferences and tolerance as well as taste preferences.

Which Is Right For You?

So, now that you know the facts, you can work out which option is best for you. Typically, the choice between CBD oil and tincture is a personal preference. Whether you are concerned about the taste, how to take your cannabidiol or the price, you will find we have many infused cannabis product options.
