What is a CBD tincture?
CBD oil is extracted from hemp plants. CBD oil has gained the attention of researchers due to its beneficial effects on the immune system and body. Unlike marijuana and other medicinal cannabis products, full spectrum CBD oil derived from hemp only contains trace amounts of THC. It can not have more than 0.3% THC which means it will not get you high. Below, we breakdown the top benefits of CBD.
How do I use a CBD oil tincture?
When taking Plant People Drops+ tinctures, squeeze one full dropper or your desired dose under your tongue. Keep in mouth for 30 seconds or longer and swallow. Consistency is key for success, take daily, day or night. You can also cook it in food or add it to your coffee and smoothies!
What are the benefits and uses of CBD oil?
A daily regimen with full spectrum hemp extract, high in CBD, may reduce your body’s natural stress response and stress hormones (bye cortisol!) according to mounting evidence. CBD oil has also been shown to help aid in inflammation relief and sleep.
How much CBD oil should I take?
We recommend that you should always start small. The reason for this is simple: everyone’s body is different so it’s a matter of trial and error to figure out what the perfect amount is for you. It’s important to note you’d have to take A LOT - we’re talking about ingesting almost 20,000 mg of CBD oil in a very short amount of time - before it would become toxic, according to a 2011 study published in the journal Current Drug Safety.
Which CBD oil tincture is right for me?
Everyone is different, that’s why Plant People offers an assortment of CBD oil tinctures. If you are new to CBD, we recommend trying our Drops+ Starter Set.
What is full spectrum CBD oil?
All Plant People tinctures are made of full spectrum CBD oil. Full-spectrum is an extract that is high in CBD but also contains other beneficial cannabinoids such as CBC, CBN, CBG as well as terpenes and other phytonutrients that are naturally occurring in the hemp plant. All of these work in harmony creating something called the ‘entourage effect’. Quality full spectrum CBD products are very low in THC (less than 0.3% - the legal amount). Plant People tinctures amplify other minor cannabinoids depending on the solution and benefit - CBN for sleep, CBG and CBC for relief.
How long do CBD tinctures last?
Research indicates that CBD tincture effects last between 4-6 hours.
Can CBD oil help with sleep?
CBD may help you address most of these root causes that are interfering with your sleep cycle. With stress-fighting and muscle-soothing effects, CBD can possibly help you fall asleep more easily too. We also suggest the use of the cannabinoid, CBN, which is found in our Drops+ Sleep.
Can CBD oil help with pain?
There are two types of muscle aches that may benefit from CBD treatment:
- Stress-Related - Most of the time when we’re on edge, we tend to tense our bodies —resulting in discomfort in our neck or shoulders.
- Overexertion - Going to the gym and maintaining a healthy lifestyle is important, but it’s important to do-so safely otherwise there is a risk of muscle strain. CBD may help with recovery.
- Inflammation - Research indicates that CBD has powerful anti-inflammatory properties.
