How to Use a CBD Terpene Tincture

CBD Tinctures: 5 Things Every Consumer Should Know

A great addition to the hemp industry is a high-quality CBD terpene tincture. One of the best-kept secrets in the CBD realm is a specially formulated tincture that packs a powerful punch of CBD plus a healthy portion of beneficial terpenes. CBD and terpenes work together to deliver a relaxing, well-balanced state of wellness that is highly enjoyable. Now that the word is out, you might be seeing more hemp extracts that feature the addition of extra terpenes. This is good news.

What Are Terpenes?

Although the word “terpene” might be fairly new to the general public, terpenes themselves have been around for a very long time. In fact, most people encounter terpenes in one form or another every day. 

Have you ever smelled the scent of freshly cut grass? How about the scent of freshly ground black pepper? Although these two are very different from each other, it is the terpenes that they possess that cause the odors that they give off. 

Scientists believe that the reasons that plants have terpenes all have to do with the survival of the plant. In some cases, the scent or taste is terrible enough to fend off animals or insects that would otherwise eat it. In other cases, the scent of the plant helps to attract pollinating insects so that the plants can carry on and continue to evolve and thrive.

It is believed that certain scents and flavors that terpenes produce will have an effect on the people that experience them. Lavender, for instance, is supposed to have a calming effect on the people that experience its scent. Another belief is that the terpenes that are found in black pepper actually lessen the intensity of the high that is caused by THC.

You can read all of the scientific evidence that you want, but a great way to get an understanding of how different terpenes affect people is to go out and sniff different flowers and plants. You will be able to feel the difference between each scent and how it might affect your mood. 

Terpenes and CBD

The one thing that terpenes and CBD have in common is that they both are plant-based compounds that are available in the hemp plant. However, CBD is a cannabinoid, and cannabinoids are not the same as terpenes. Cannabinoids are exclusive to plants that are part of the cannabis family, and terpenes are found in every plant. However, terpenes and cannabinoids work together to create the entire essence of the hemp plant, and may also contribute to the wellness effects that the hemp plant has to offer.

The CBD Terpene Tincture

 A CBD terpene tincture is a CBD tincture that has been fortified with select terpenes that can help to enhance the effects of the CBD. The entourage effect is when the cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids all work together to deliver the highest quality wellness effect that is possible. 

The best thing about a tincture is that it can be administered directly under the tongue in order to initiate an almost instant system delivery.

Under the Tongue

Since tinctures are designed to put a few drops under the tongue, the best way to use a tincture sublingually. Simply use the eyedropper that comes with the tincture to measure out the exact amount that is best for you. Once you have the precise measurement, simply lift your tongue and administer the drops from the eyedropper directly underneath your tongue. Do not automatically swallow, instead allow the drops to sit on the underside of your tongue for at least 30 seconds, then use your tongue to swirl the remaining oil around on your inner cheeks. Eventually, you will swallow the excess, but not before it has had a chance to be absorbed directly into your bloodstream by the veins under your tongue.
