Which CBD Tincture is Right for Me?
Written by: Shelby Andrews
There are many benefits to taking CBD tinctures, whether you’re looking for physical relief, mental relief or just an overall improvement to your health.
If you’re just starting to research or experiment with CBD tinctures, or if you’re considering a change in your dosage, the amount of information can be overwhelming.
But don’t worry! SASTR has broken it down for you:
What is a CBD tincture?
Tincture oil is a high-dosage liquid extraction of CBD that’s infused with a carrier oil. It comes in various strengths and is most commonly applied sublingually (under the tongue).
How do I use CBD tincture?
While sublingual is the most common intake method for tinctures, there are other ways it can be effectively ingested:
- Sublingually: this is the fastest intake method. Tincture is taken orally under the tongue, and within 8-20 minutes your tongue’s capillaries will absorb the dosage into your body.
- Swallowing: usually by mixing the tincture in with food or drink, you can swallow your dosage, and your digestive system will absorb the CBD within 30-45 minutes.
What are my dosage options?
There are multiple dosage options of CBD tincture – you should choose your product based on how much CBD per ml you want to ingest per dosage.
300mg tincture offers 300mg of CBD per 20ml of carrier oil. This is the lowest dosage offered in a tincture by SASTR.
One full dropper (1ml) contains 15mg of CBD.
900mg of CBD tincture contains 900mg of CBD per 30ml of carrier oil. In simpler terms, this is 3x stronger than a 300mg per 30ml tincture listed above.
One full dropper (1ml) would contain 30mg of CBD.
1800mg of CBD tincture contains 1800mg of CBD per 30ml of carrier oil. That’s 6x the strength of a 300mg/30ml, and 2x the strength of a 900mg/30ml tincture.
One full dropper (1ml) would contain 60mg of CBD!
The benefits of more CBD per ml
There are two main benefits to purchasing a stronger CBD tincture:
- A stronger oil allows you to get more CBD per dosage regimen
- If you don’t need a stronger dosage, you will have a product that lasts you up to 6x as long as a 300mg/30ml dosage – which is a better bang for your buck if you use your tincture on a regular basis!
