When looking for a CBD product to incorporate into your daily routine, tinctures are the go-to option. Current research has shown CBD to have a variety of benefits for both humans and our four legged friends. But with so many different tinctures on the market, how do you know which one to choose? At American Shaman CBD, we understand how important these questions are. We care about our customers’ CBD experience and strive to answer all of these questions and concerns.
Tinctures are one of the most popular CBD products on the market. Shoppers have a variety of options to choose from, including strength, whether or not it includes THC, and if the tincture is water-soluble. Often coming in multiple flavors, tinctures can be taken orally or by adding them to your food or drink.
Tinctures are taken under the tongue for maximum efficiency. When taken this way, CBD is absorbed by three small salivary glands found beneath the tongue called sublingual glands. According to Teach me Anatomy, these glands “contribute to only 3-5% of overall salivary volume”. These sublingual glands allow for CBD to be absorbed more efficiently and quickly.
CBD Tinctures have a long list of benefits. Current research has shown strong evidence to suggest CBD assists with sleep, joint pain, and even has the potential to help deter Alzheimer’s Disease.
Benefits of CBD Tinctures
In a 2019 study published by the Permanente Journal, the majority of adults participating in the study noted improved sleep and a decrease in anxiety within the first month of using CBD. Results showed “The sleep scores demonstrated mild improvement. The anxiety scores decreased within the first month and then remained decreased during the study duration.”
Similarly, a study conducted by Augusta University found evidence that suggests CBD could help deter early-onset familial Alzheimer’s disease. Researchers found that high doses of CBD over a two-week course helped “restore the function of two proteins key to reducing the accumulation of beta-amyloid plaque, a hallmark of Alzheimer’s disease, and improves cognition in an experimental model of early-onset familial Alzheimer’s.”
The benefits of CBD aren’t just for humans. In a paper published by Frontiers in Veterinary Science, researchers studied the impact of CBD treatment in dogs with Osteoarthritis. Their results found that “This pharmacokinetic and clinical study suggests that 2 mg/kg of CBD twice daily can help increase comfort and activity in dogs with OA.”
Choosing The Best Tincture For You
But with thousands of different tinctures on the market, choosing a quality product perfect for your needs can be a challenge. Thankfully, there are several things shoppers can do to make sure they are buying the right tincture.
First and foremost is the certificate of analysis (or COA for short). Many brands will offer a COA on their website for easy viewing access, and if purchasing in a brick and mortar location, a current COA should be kept on file for all CBD products. This certificate will verify the potency of the CBD tincture, as well as any, contaminates and other important information.
American Shaman CBD offers COA’s for all of their available products. Consumers can access COA’s on the CBD Lab Reports page beneath the About Us tab on our website.
Next, shoppers will want to look at the potency of the product itself. Since tinctures can come in a variety of strength options and CBD can impact individuals differently, it is important to choose the right dosage strength for your needs. For those new to CBD, it is advised to start with a lower dosage strength and build up from there.
Third, CBD shoppers should always look at the labeling of the product itself. Is the wording consistent with what is advertised on the website? Does the label list the ingredients and recommended dosages? Quality CBD brands will take care to make sure all compliance standards are met and take pride in offering the best product possible.
CBD Coppell has a variety of CBD tinctures for those both new and experienced with CBD. We carry a variety of options for everyone’s needs. And with summer just around the corner, we have the flavors to help you kick your summer off right.
CBD impacts each individual differently, starting with a lighter dosage is recommended. Consumers taking medication prescribed by a physician should consult with their doctor before trying CBD.
