Are Tinctures Still Popular?

Written by Kyla Owens

With cannabidiol (CBD) becoming a widely accepted health supplement, more companies are launching on the marktet their CBD infused products. Over the years, tinctures gained their popularity and are still one of the most purchased product.

Tinctures are highly concentrated extracts made by soaking the plant in alcohol. Together with cannabinoids, also other plant constituents are extracted. For this reason, tincures can be mixed with flavoring, vegetable glycerin and sweeteners to adjust the taste. To cover the bitterness of the CBD alcohol-based extract is possible to add few drops to food or beverages.

CBD tinctures can be used to treat both physical and mental health conditions including general and chronic pain, inflammations, insomnia and anxiety among other things. Tinctures are usually taken orally with a dropper and because of the high concentration, only a small amount is needed for the product to have an effect. [1]

As of 2021, tinctures are considered to be one of the market’s most popular forms of CBD consumption. Because of their high potency, tinctures are an easy form of pain relief.

Purchasing tinctures does come with a risk: some companies don’t care about product quality. It is essential that you do online research before purchasing CBD tinctures. The safest is to go with well-established companies that have glowing reviews and most important to consult the certificate of analysis (COA) of the product before buying it. Since tinctures are an easy product to make, some companies don’t make product safety a priority. As CBD becomes more popular, the quality of certain products has gone down due to mass production. However, there are still plenty of high-quality CBD tinctures on the market. If you are looking for an effective and highly concentrated product, then tinctures are for you.
