Four Reasons Why CBD Tinctures Are The Best Way To Treat Stress

A CBD tincture is CBD extract mixed with alcohol and then applied with a dropper under your tongue. If cannabis is legal in your state, you can make your own CBD oil at home, but you will need to know how to make it the right strength and how long to "cure" it. Once you have a tincture made or you have purchased one from a dispensary, you will find that it is very effective against stress. Here are four reasons why CBD tinctures for stress are better than most other cannabis products. 

The Tincture Will Not Make You Fat

A big problem with a lot of other "edibles" is that they contain a ton of calories, usually from the sugar and/or chocolate used to make the "edibles" more palatable. If you are using edibles to treat any medical problem, that is a lot of excess calories in your diet, and ultimately a lot of extra weight around your middle. A tincture, on the other hand, is a few drops under the tongue when you need it, and it does not contain nearly the calories in a small piece of CBD-laced chocolate or a cannabis brownie. 

The Tincture Contains Alcohol and CBD

The two ingredients that make up a tincture are alcohol and CBD. You will have to be careful about taking the tincture and driving because of the alcohol content. However, the alcohol is a depressant, which can bring down your stress levels, and the CBD extract in it is already proven to be calming to its users. If you are feeling extremely high levels of stress and anxiety, the tincture can help ease these feelings and make you feel more relaxed. 

The Tincture Is Immediately Absorbed into the Bloodstream

Because a tincture is deposited under your tongue, it is almost immediately absorbed into your bloodstream through the thin membranes and thick blood vessels that are under your tongue. The effects of the tincture are felt almost immediately because the CBD does not have to wait to be digested like the edibles. It is generally better tolerated and can be titrated to fit your needs over time. 

No Smoking Necessary

If you are not a smoker, a tincture is a good alternative to smoking pot. You do not have to take up smoking just to use marijuana medicinally. You can purchase a bottle of tincture instead, and avoid smoking.
