CBD Tincture vs. CBD Oil

Although the two terms are often used interchangeably, CBD tinctures and CBD oils differ in their production process and final ingredients.

The term CBD drops may sometimes be used to refer to CBD tinctures and CBD oils. CBD drops also refer to how CBD tinctures and CBD oils are taken, where a few drops of the liquid are added to food and drinks or placed under the tongue.

Creating CBD oils require cannabis extracts to be diluted with a carrier oil, making this form of CBD oil-based. This carrier oil enriches the product and makes it easier for the body to absorb.

Many companies use purified coconut oil (MCT oil) for their CBD oil tinctures. However, other plant-based oils can also be incorporated.

A few alternatives for carrier oils include hempseed oil, olive oil, hemp oil, grapeseed oil, avocado oil, and flaxseed oil.

Note that hempseed oil refers to oil extracted solely from hemp seeds that barely contain CBD. Hemp oil, in contrast, is extracted from hemp flowers, stalks, or the whole hemp plant and is rich in CBD.

CBD tinctures are made by soaking hemp extracts in water and alcohol. The most commonly used alcohol is distilled-grain ethyl alcohol (ethanol).

CBD oils and tinctures both contain cannabidiol and are sold in tinted glass bottles. Dark-colored containers have been found to extend the shelf life of oil stored in them(3).

Both CBD tinctures and oils are sold with a dropper, making it easy to apply the right dose while making cannabidiol easier to consume.

CBD tinctures and oils are often taken orally, with many preferring the sublingual route. Sublingual administration is when a few drops of a substance is placed under the tongue for a few seconds before swallowing.

Typically, both oils and tinctures are made with a high concentration of CBD compared to other cannabidiol products.
