People often ask which is better, CBD tincture or hemp seed. And while they’re at it, why not learn about hemp itself? In this article, we’ll take a look at hemp and CBD, comparing and contrasting the two. After reading this brief article, you should be able to decide if CBD is right for you.
First, let’s go over the basic difference between CBD tincture and CBD oil. Tincture refers to concentrated extracts of cannabis. While the word ‘cbd’ can sometimes be used interchangeably with ‘cannabis’, they are actually two different plants. Tincture can be made from the dried flowers or leaves of the cannabis plant. If you make your own CBD-tincture by soaking freshly picked cannabis flowers or leaves in pure water, then you’re likely to have CBD oil.
On the other hand, CBD oil is created from the pressed, cracked, green pulp of the cannabis plant. It has less of a concentration of CBD than THC, but is just as effective. Some people prefer the taste of CBD tincture over CBD oil – maybe because they like to inhale the scent, or maybe because they aren’t able to buy CBD oil at the store. But both tincture and CBD oil are very effective when used sublingually (under the tongue) by swallowing. There are no reported serious side effects when using CBD sublingually.
If you’re interested in trying CBD sublingual oils, there are two ways to buy them. You can buy them online, or you can make your own. I’ve found that buying CBD tincture in bulk is more expensive than buying it in retail amounts; however, purchasing CBD oils in small amounts has the advantage of being cheaper than buying retail. If you’re new to using medical marijuana, you might want to start out making your own, to see how it goes and decide whether or not you want to invest in larger quantities down the road.
In addition to CBD tincture, many people like to use other natural substances for treating certain ailments. For instance, essences and extracts made from herbs such as the following are often used: Calendula, Indian chamomile, lavender, lemongrass, Rosemary, and lemon balm. While there is some controversy surrounding the safety of these herbal extracts, many practitioners have accepted them as a valid form of treatment for a number of ailments. You may try some of these, or even try different combinations; your body will likely respond to your individual preferences.
