Pro: Tinctures are an excellent method to absorb CBD, typically taking about 15 to 30 minutes. The quick action could make it especially useful in treating pain or anxiety.
Cons: It could be challenging with tinctures to determine how much CBD you’re getting. Check your CBD Elxyr label for correct dosing, this will be dependent of the bottle you are using. If needed, ask us for help. The price per bottle could be more for a product with a higher CBD content per dose.
Good to know: We suggest you drop a dose of tincture under your tongue and hold it there for 30-60 seconds before swallowing. Doing so speeds up the effects of the CBD. If you put the tincture on the top of your tongue, you’re likely to swallow it sooner, sending it into your digestive tract, which will absorb the CBD more slowly. If you add a CBD tincture to foods or drinks, it could take up to 30 minutes for it to enter your bloodstream.
We also suggest starting with a small dose, like 10 mg, to see how sensitive or tolerant you are. But don’t be surprised if you don’t feel any effect until you reach about 30 mg per dose. Ongoing conditions such as chronic pain are likely to better respond with daily doses.
Shake the bottle well before using, because CBD can gets stuck on the side of the bottle.
