CBD OIL TINCTURES
CBD OIL TINCTURES
Looking to add a drop of wellness to your life? We don’t blame you. Our CBD Oil Tinctures are 100% vegan, made with non-GMO, CO2-extracted hemp oil, and combined with a carrier oil — in this case, coconut-derived MCT oil — to improve absorption and bioavailability, delivering a consistent, high-quality CBD experience every time. To increase their effectiveness, we’ve infused our CBD tinctures with everything from powerful antioxidants, like curcumin and coenzyme Q10, to the “Mother of All Cannabinoids” CBG, special terpenes blends, and the “ultimate relaxation cannabinoid,” CBN.
60 DAY GUARANTEE
For many people, tinctures are the most familiar and preferred method of consuming CBD. Perhaps the reason oil tinctures are so popular is because you can regulate the exact size of your serving. Additionally, adjusting your dose is relatively easy by adding or subtracting a few drops. Everyone is different, and we all have different factors that affect bioavailability, including weight, height, body mass, and tolerance, to name a few. Using a tincture allows you to experiment a bit more to dial in the exact amount of CBD that fits your needs.
CBDfx has three different oil tinctures, each made with pure, organic CBD oil (with the transparency of third-party lab reports). Each oil has its own unique profile that takes advantage of the Entourage Effect, the unique interaction between different cannabinoids when they are consumed. The CBD + CBG Oil Wellness Tincture blends broad spectrum CBD with CBG, the “mother of all cannabinoids,” for a wonderful, health-boosting daily supplement. The CBD + CBN Oil Calmness Tincture features full spectrum CBD (that is, the oil containing all of the rich cannabinoid and terpene profile, just as it was extracted from the hemp plant), as well as CBN, the “ultimate relaxation cannabinoid.” This provides a restful, calming effect which is great for kicking back and relaxing, and even getting ready for sleep. If you’re looking for a sleep tincture, though, I recommend the CBD Oil Sleep Tincture, which features broad spectrum CBD, CBN, popular natural sleep aid melatonin, and a host of sleep terpenes. This tincture effectively helps you to get to sleep quickly, and to sleep soundly through the night.
Call us traditional, but we think it’s hard to beat the fast-acting benefits of pure, organic hemp extract when it’s consumed orally. By orally, we’re specifically talking about taking your CBD drops sublingually, or under the tongue. This allows the CBD oil to absorb into your bloodstream more quickly.
But before we get into all of that, we should discuss what exactly you’re taking when you use a drop of CBD oil.
What Is CBD Oil?
CBD oil is the oil derived from the buds, leaves and stems of the cannabis hemp plant. Starting with organic, industrial-grade hemp, grown right here in the U.S.A., our CBD oil tinctures contain some of the highest-quality CBD oil on the planet.
Blended with coconut-derived MCT oil for increased absorption, our CBD oil tinctures use full and broad spectrum CBD, other important minor cannabinoids, like CBG and CBN (more on them later), purposely crafted terpene blends, and a host of other beneficial botanicals and compounds for maximum effect.
These full and broad spectrum formulations mean our CBD tinctures are crafted to give your body everything it needs for maximum benefit in every single drop. We call this “layered functionality” — a combination of rich cannabinoid profiles, terpenes, nutrients, botanical extracts, and other compounds that work in harmony to produce a more profound effect in our CBD drops.
What’s in CBD Oil?
High in CBD, with only a THC percentage of less than 0.3% for full spectrum and less than 0.01% for broad spectrum, CBD provides the calming effects of THC without the “high.” Once the CBD is extracted from the hemp plant with the CO2 extraction method, it’s combined with a carrier agent (fats and oils) to allow the body to absorb it in fixed amounts.
Broad Spectrum CBD vs. Full Spectrum CBD Tinctures
If you want to find the best CBD oil for you, you’ll want to pay close attention to the type of CBD you’re dealing with, as both have different attributes.
When it comes to the extracted CBD oil, there are a few different types:
- Full Spectrum CBD: includes trace amounts of THC** (below 0.3%) and other phytocannabinoids and terpenes
- Broad Spectrum CBD: THC is non-detectable and below the 0.01% threshold
- CBD Isolate: THC is non-detectable and below 0.002%
*CBD is non-psychoactive and has none of the adverse side effects commonly caused by tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).
**As required by the federal government and Food and Drug Administration (FDA), industrial hemp used in mass-market CBD products is prohibited from holding more than 0.3% THC content.
At CBDfx, we grow our hemp plants with only certified organic farming techniques and, when extracting the CBD oil, we use the cleanest method in the industry: CO2 extraction. As a result, our CBD is always solvent-free from a pure, single-pass CO2 extraction, resulting in a safer and cleaner end product for you, the consumer.
For added benefit and inclusion, our CBD products — including our CBD drops — are almost universally vegan and are made with all-natural ingredients. From the outside looking in, this may seem like a lot of effort to undertake to create a CBD tincture. However, we believe in the idea that what we put in our bodies has a profound effect on our sense of wellness. And that’s why we guarantee only the highest quality products for our customers.
We also extensively use third-party testing at the batch level to ensure the purity and quality of all of our products. In fact, you can find a QR code on every one of our products which is a link to its corresponding lab report.
As a manufacturer, we support our country’s farms and are proud to say our hemp — among the best in the world — is grown and processed right here in the United States. We source all of our industrial hemp directly from Kentucky and only use the finest, organic, non-GMO, and pesticide-free compounds in our production.
What Are the Benefits of CBD?
While the many users of CBD have a myriad of reasons why they choose to use products like CBD drops, the general consensus is that CBD provides a better sense of wellness and overall well-being. The results of this can manifest in the body or possibly the mind, so we always advise prospective customers to try CBD for themselves at a responsible level and determine how CBD affects them.
How Much CBD Oil Do You Need?
When it comes to determining an effective CBD serving size, things can often get a bit confusing. As we mentioned above, regardless of the type of CBD product you have, you’ll want to start off slow, to find out what works for you. If you’re new to CBD, consider trying a tincture product as it works quickly and the size or number of drops can be adjusted very easily.
Because CBD intake is a very personalized process, you’ll want to try out a range of CBD products (CBD tinctures, CBD gummies, CBD topicals, CBD edibles, and more) to determine the best intake schedule for yourself. At the end of the day, your CBD experience will be based on a variety of unique factors such as your weight, metabolism, age, genetics, product type, concentration, and more.
For example, because CBD is fat-soluble, a heavier-set person may see improved results as the oil becomes absorbed into the body’s excess fat cells more readily.
So, when finding your ideal CBD intake schedule, start small and work your way up. You can measure your CBD intake with your tincture dropper. Apply a bit under your tongue and swish it around your mouth for maximum effect for about a minute. If you fail to feel the intended effects of your CBD, try a larger amount the next day.
CBD and Bioavailability
Bioavailability is the level that your CBD product is absorbed into your bloodstream. Different products have different levels of bioavailability. For example, a CBD tincture has a high bioavailability, since the chemical compounds of the CBD drops enter your bloodstream rather easily through the capillaries under your tongue.
By contrast, the bioavailability of a CBD topical would be a bit lower, since it needs to get through the upper layer of your skin to enter your bloodstream.
Once absorbed into your bloodstream, the CBD reaches your body’s endocannabinoid system. It then sends out signals to the receptors throughout your body — the CB1 and CB2 receptors. The endocannabinoid system is designed to maintain homeostasis in the body, helping it to maintain balance in a variety of essential functions, from sleep, mood and memory to pain and stress management.
These are just a few of the wellness benefits that many users experience.
What Are Terpenes?
In all things that have an aromatic smell to them (fruit rinds, flowers, tree bark, essential oils, etc.), you’ll find terpenes. These molecular chemicals are all around us and feature prominently within CBD oil and other CBD products.
Known for their therapeutic effects, even when used on their own (aromatherapy), terpenes can achieve a sense of layered functionality when combined with CBD oil, bringing together the benefits of CBD with the benefits of terpenes.
Today, there are over 200 known terpene compounds that can be sourced back to cannabis plants and over 20,000 terpenes overall.
Here’s a quick look at some of the biggest and most important terpenes compounds in CBD.
Limonene is a terpene that can be found in a variety of citrus fruits. It can enhance your CBD experience by helping to increase the overall absorption level of other terpenes, as well.
Found in pine, eucalyptus, orange peels, and rosemary, Pinene has been used through the centuries as a natural anti-inflammatory, dating back to ancient Chinese medicine.
Linalool can be found in soft, flowering plants, like lavender and chamomile, which can produce a calming sensation via its aromatic qualities.
Humulene is found in hops, sage, basil, echinacea, and ginger — giving them all a robust smell.
Can You Take CBD Oil for Pain?
This is a common question among prospective users of CBD.
We can’t say. Literally and legally. As of the 2018 Farm Bill, industrial hemp and all of its derivatives were made legal, meaning that everything from CBD gummies to full spectrum CBD oil are now available to the public. However, because CBD and all cannabis, including hemp, were illegal for so many years, research on the plant and its chemical compounds was limited. Although much research has been done since then, with real clinical trials, animal studies, and peer-reviewed papers, there’s still a great deal that we’ve yet to discover about the effects of CBD.
As it stands, the overarching information we have on the effects of CBD is from consumers like yourself — and as a result, it’s largely subjective. People take CBD for a variety of reasons and, thankfully, have found relief in both their minds and their bodies through the continual use of CBD products, like CBD oil.
Along with the reported benefits of CBD oil, another consideration for positive responses is the Entourage Effect. The Entourage Effect can be experienced through both broad spectrum CBD oil and full spectrum CBD oil. This term references the phenomenon that occurs when the various cannabinoids found in broad spectrum and full spectrum CBD work together synergistically and more effectively than they would if taken separately. In essence, the cannabinoids bolster each other’s effects, creating a deeper, more profound CBD experience.
Obviously, it’s worth mentioning that none of this is possible without the endocannabinoid system (ECS). This system bridges the gap between the cannabinoids you get from CBD (phytocannabinoids) and the ones your body naturally produces (endocannabinoids). It is this interaction that provides wellness benefits to your body.
Types of CBD Drops
Here’s a quick look at our CBD tinctures.
CBD + CBG Oil Wellness Tincture
Our CBD + CBG Oil Tincture represents a revolution in CBD oil. Coming in five different concentrations (regular strength 500mg, extra-strength 1000mg, maximum strength 2000mg, maximum strength plus 4000mg, and ultra strength 6000mg), our CBD wellness drops are designed to get your day started on the right foot with a burst of natural antioxidants and organic CBD!
With an ideal 2:1 ratio of broad spectrum CBD to CBG, the “Mother of All Cannabinoids,” these powerful CBD drops also feature 18 terpenes, plus curcumin and coenzyme Q10, for a powerhouse boost of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory goodness. Packing a range of potent cannabinoids, like CBG, CBC, and CBD-V, our Wellness Tinctures are crafted to boost the Entourage Effect and bring you an even greater sense of wellness!
If you’re wondering what makes CBG so special, we can start by telling you how rare it is. Did you know that in a given hemp plant, the CBD to CBG ratio is 20:1? That means to get it to a 2:1 ratio in our Wellness Tinctures, we had to harvest 10 times more hemp. The reason we go this extra mile is that CBG, the “Mother of All Cannabinoids,” is critical to enhancing the effects of CBD in the much-desired Entourage Effect. It interacts directly with the body’s CB1 and CB2 receptors to provide further balance within the body by interacting with your endocannabinoid system.
The Role of Antioxidants on Health
Blending the benefits of CBD with the benefits of natural antioxidants, our Wellness Tincture features curcumin and coenzyme Q10. Antioxidants, by their nature, are found in a variety of herbs, roots, and fruits, and are known to reduce the presence of free radicals in the body. What does that mean? It means that antioxidants can lower the general level of oxidation within the body — which causes aging — and ultimately keep your body’s energy levels high.
What Is Curcumin?
Curcumin is the active ingredient in the spice turmeric. Potent as an antioxidant and even more powerful as an anti-inflammatory, it has been believed for many years that curcumin can lower your risk for certain diseases, illnesses, and health conditions. As an active ingredient, it can also help with weight loss, mood swings, cognitive function, and has a detoxifying effect on the body.
What Is Coenzyme Q10?
A natural antioxidant produced by the body, coenzyme Q10 is used by our cells in energy production. However, our bodies produce less CoQ10 as we age, reducing our energy levels overall. As a result, it’s important to supplement it to ensure lasting energy throughout your day.
CBD + CBN Oil Calming Tincture
For this calming edition of our classic CBD drops, we’ve taken everything you loved about our original CBD tincture and updated it for better flavor (sweet and lightly floral), while adding an additional calming ingredient, CBN!
What Is CBN?
If you’re not that familiar with the different cannabinoids, we don’t blame you. Hemp contains several minor cannabinoids (over 100!) and it can be hard, if not impossible, to keep them all straight. However, there’s one minor cannabinoid to keep in mind if you have trouble relaxing or sleeping, and that’s CBN. CBN is a natural derivative of THC (though, like CBD, CBN is non-intoxicating). Essentially, when THC ages, it turns into CBN.
CBN is naturally non-psychoactive and is a helpful chemical compound known to produce a calming effect in the body and mind. This overall sense of calm can help you get to sleep easier at night, nap during the day, and bring a greater degree of chill to your well-being.
To help you bring more calm to your day, our CBD + CBN Oil Calming Tincture is available in a variety of strengths, including regular 500mg, extra strength 1000mg, maximum strength 2000mg, maximum strength plus 4000mg, and ultra strength 6000mg CBD + 300mg CBN.
How Does CBN Work?
Cannabinol, or CBN, is a minor cannabinoid that works similarly to its bigger brethren, such as CBD and CBG. In the same way that these other cannabinoids perform, CBN binds to CB1 receptors and may promote calmness and relaxation in the body and mind. This physiological response prompts the body to tire and gets ready for bed.
CBD Oil Sleep Tincture
While our CBD + CBN Oil Calming Tincture is great for relaxation and a sense of chill, our CBD Oil Sleep Tincture takes that restfulness to a whole new level. With the addition of the natural sleep supplement, melatonin, these dozy CBD drops help you to not only fall asleep more quickly, but also sleep more soundly through the night. With the potential dangers of prescription and over-the-counter sleeping pills, a CBD sleep tincture can provide a natural sleep aid alternative.
The Role of Sleep on Health
Across the United States, more than 27% of Americans suffer from some form of sleep disorder, including insomnia and sleep apnea. We all need sleep, and when we don’t get it — or don’t get enough of it — the lack of sleep can have profound effects on our mental and physical health. Sadly, sleep doesn’t come as easy as lying down and closing our eyes for many people. Real feelings of stress, anxiety, and depression can actively reduce our ability to sleep. And to compound this effect, when we miss out on sleep, a toll is taken on our bodies, reducing our brain function and weakening our immune systems.
CBD and Melatonin
Melatonin is a hormone produced by the body’s pineal gland that helps to control the sleep-wake cycle. Combining restful melatonin with the calming effects of CBD, plus the “ultimate sleep cannabinoid” CBN, our CBD Sleep Oil is a one-two-three punch of nighttime bliss. And the best part is, as opposed to sleeping pills, this natural CBD sleep aid doesn’t give you a groggy hangover effect in the morning. With our CBD Oil Sleep Tincture, you’ll get to sleep quickly, sleep soundly, and wake up refreshed in the morning. These CBD drops are a must for every nightstand.
CBD Oils for Dogs and Cats
Dogs and cats (just like humans and other mammals) have endocannabinoid systems, too. So, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that CBD can have the same wellness benefits for them as it does for us.
Our CBD Oil for Pets is organic and human-grade — the same pure, healthy CBD we use in all of our products, just formulated in strength for cats’ and dogs’ bodies. And it comes in a delicious, natural bacon flavor that elicits both purrs and tail wags.
Our CBD Oil for Dogs comes in four sizes: 250mg for small breeds under 20lb., 500mg for medium breeds 20–60lb., 1000mg for large breeds over 60lb., and extra strength 2000mg for the largest breeds, over 100lb. Our 250mg CBD Oil for Cats is specifically formulated for kitties.
