How to Add a CBD Tincture to Your Daily Routine

For those that are new to CBD products it can be an overwhelming experience. What product do I start with?  Gummies or tinctures? Capsules or softgels? There are also a ton of companies to choose from. That is why our website only sells the best in CBD wellness.

At Sweet Leaves LLC we wanted to give newbies a guide on how to properly use a CBD tincture.

First you need to determine the dose. Start with a low dose, and gradually increase it over time until you feel the desired effects.  Shake the bottle. CBD tinctures consist of CBD oil and a carrier liquid, such as alcohol or coconut oil. Before using, shake the bottle to mix the ingredients thoroughly.  Place the drops under your tongue. Using a dropper, place the desired amount of CBD tincture under your tongue and hold it there for 30 to 60 seconds before swallowing. Wait for absorption. CBD is absorbed through the mucous membranes in your mouth and digestive system and then wait for 20-30 minutes for the effects to fully kick in. Adjust dosage accordingly. If you do not feel the effects, gradually increase the dosage until you achieve the desired result. Store it in a cool, dry place, away from heat and light to preserve the potency of your CBD tincture. Remember to consult your doctor before starting to use any CBD product, especially if you are already taking medication or have medical conditions.

This method is the quickest way to feel the effects of a tincture.  You may also add them to any beverage or food.  If added to baked good just remember that the cooking process can lower the potency of the tincture.  Make sure to keep the temperature under 350 degrees.
