Mindful Guide to CBD Tinctures

Mindful Medicinals is proud to offer a variety of CBD tinctures to help you realize the medicinal benefits of pain relief, relaxation, and wellbeing.  While hemp-based CBD is safe to use for patients of all ages and health backgrounds, some dosage adjustment will be necessary to find you the best option for your unique physical makeup.

What Are Tinctures?

CBD tinctures are made by infusing CBD isolate into a carrier oil, such as hemp seed oil, or MCT oil. The result is a potent liquid that delivers the effects of the cannabinoid molecules without any smoking or other form of combustion. In the growing consumer market, producers will often add carrier oils and other complementary ingredients, such as orange oil to improve the taste of a tincture.

Because a CBD tincture is concentrated, it’s designed to be taken in small doses. This is why most tinctures come with a built-in dropper that allows users to take small, carefully measured quantities.

Since the doses are relatively small, tinctures can be administered in a variety of ways. For patients looking to take their CBD with food, a dose of tincture can be mixed into a meal like soup or pasta. It can also be added easily to drinks like coffee and tea; an evening cup of chamomile paired with CBD tincture stands to be even more relaxing than usual.

There are two primary things to consider when determining the best way to take CBD drops from our tincture bottles.

Isolates vs Full Spectrum

CBD Isolates

The cannabis plant family, including agriculturally farmed hemp, contains a large array of chemicals, oils, and cannabinoids. CBD is one of these cannabinoids and can be isolated from the hemp plant. CBD isolates are oil tinctures that offer only CBD and no other ancillary chemicals or ingredients from the plant. It offers a very specific and carefully controlled dose of cannabidiol oil.

Full Spectrum 

Alternatively, we offer a tincture that contains the full spectrum of cannabinoids from the hemp plant, increasing your benefits and relief. By merely incorporating the full hemp plant, other compounds like CBG, CBN, 0.03%THC, and other natural particulates work together, creating the “entourage effect,” boosting their contributions to the endocannabinoid system. This is the full benefits of the plant and, in some studies, offers a more enhanced effect.

Dialing in the Dose

Mindful Medicinals offers CBD tinctures from 500mg to 2,000mg so it really depends on your comfort level with the substance. If you’re new to using CBD for health and wellness, you may want to start with the 500mg Nano Drops, adding a few to your morning coffee. More seasoned CBD users will likely have a greater tolerance for the effects of CBD and will want to utilize the stronger 1000mg to 2000mg options.

It’s best to start slow and work your way up, gradually increasing the number of drops every 5-7 days until you feel like you’ve reached a happy balance.
