What you should know about CBD tinctures

The issue of the legalization of marijuana in various parts of the world has been increasingly accepted and therefore the marketing of products that contain it has begun, since it has been proven that this plant has certain substances that help cure diseases and can be managed as an alternative treatment of pain in human and animal patients. Products like CBD Olive Oil and CBD Tinctures are also great when it comes to daily use.  

To be more specific, in this type of permitted product cannabidiol (CBD) is used, which is one of the many molecules found in Cannabis plants but unlike all of them, it is not psychoactive, which means that it does not produce hallucinations if not quite the opposite, it has a calming effect.

There is currently a whole series of ongoing investigations into the potential of CBD to treat different conditions in the human body such as epilepsy, acute pain in general (due to its analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties) and even to treat anxiety disorder, obsessive-compulsive, post-traumatic stress and related diseases (due to their interaction with different types of neurotransmitters).

One of the most popular ways to consume CBD is through tinctures, these are produced with cannabis flowers soaked in a high-proof grain alcohol that are then subjected to a slow fire for several hours and result in a powerful liquid that release the effects of cannabidiol without having to smoke. To improve its flavor, producers add oils of orange, mint or ingredients with sweet flavors that pacify its natural bitterness.

For those who can't stand its taste, you can add it to your food or drinks and thus enjoy its benefits even more easily. The usual thing is to use a dropper and apply them sublingually (the amounts are minimal) in this way the effect is much faster and safer.

Consuming CBD tinctures will help you combat the stress that most of us suffer daily and the diseases that we mentioned before, in addition to fighting insomnia, as there are some studies that have proven that applying a few drops of CBD tincture under the tongue  a couple of hours before bedtime can help induce a sense of balance to fall asleep much more easily. However, you can consult your doctor to make a more informed and responsible decision.
