Why Are CBD Tinctures So Helpful?

by | May 10, 2021

Tinctures are part of the old methods used in medicine to concentrate plant compounds.  It involves extraction using alcohol as a solvent. These methods have been used widely in history to extract the active ingredients of a wide variety of plants, including the hemp plant. 

The traditional tinctures are made by submerging the plant materials in grain alcohol, but here at Infinity Strains, we make distilled hemp oil extracts that are always third-party lab tested to ensure premium quality. Our products are produced with consistent cannabinoid content for accurate dosing.

What are tinctures?

Tinctures are essentially a liquid mix of CBD oil plus a carrier oil (MCT oil). These hemp tinctures usually come in a darkened glass bottle, which protects the content from the action of UV rays. 

Tinctures focus on delivering more CBD oil in the digestive tract, and it is best used for quicker absorption of CBD.

The production process for our Helping Friendly tinctures is quite simple for the extraction of CBD oil and the infusion of MCT oil. 

Administration of Hemp Oil Tinctures

Tinctures are versatile and can be administered in several different ways, but the preferred method is sublingual administration. 

Here are the various methods of administration:


This is the best method of administering tinctures. The effect of the tincture is rapid as it is absorbed through the sublingual artery directly into the bloodstream. 

Through this method, the tincture does not have to follow metabolism in the liver or gut. They simply release the active ingredients directly through the lining of the mouth into the bloodstream. 

When cannabinoids are metabolized in the gut or liver, they can be low, resulting in a smaller dose than expected. The sublingual application does not work this way, instead, it allows for a rapid onset of 15-30 minutes with peak effects at around 90 minutes, which can help a great deal to relieve intense pain. 

Our Helping Friendly Tinctures are meant to be taken sublingually. We offer the full spectrum, broad-spectrum, and Isolate options of these oil tinctures, which come in different flavors.


Tinctures can be added to food or swallowed as edible. The THC content is converted to 11-hydroxy-THC, which is a more potent form that delays onset by around two hours and produces a strong effect. 


Tinctures can also be used topically. This application is more popular with infused cannabis oils and WPCO. 

However, alcohol-based tinctures are most suitable for conditions where a drying effect helps, such as skin irritation, acne, or injuries deep below the skin surface. But it should not be applied to wounds or mucous membrane. 

Why are tinctures so helpful?

There are many benefits of hemp oil tinctures, including:

Minimum effective dose (MED)

The use of tinctures gives you the chance to know your “MED,” or the smallest quantity of cannabinoids that is effective for taking care of your condition. 

This is not possible with products like gummies that have a premeasured amount of CBD- so if you need more or less, you can’t appropriately take the right dosage. 

Knowing your MED helps lower your hemp tolerance; helps you choose products with the right potency; helps you save money; and allows you to enjoy a more effective treatment. 

Our Helping Friendly Tinctures come with a dropper that allows you to measure and take your right milligram needs.

However, we recommend starting with half a dropper (5ml) and gradually increasing the dosage to get the most suitable amount. 

Keep in mind that taking multiple doses throughout the day can produce a cumulative effect, resulting in a more potent experience. 


Discreet sublingual application

Applying tinctures directly under your tongue and holding for 15 seconds allows the cannabinoids to be absorbed directly through the sublingual artery into the bloodstream. 

More so, for people seeking a discreet way to consume hemp, the sublingual form of administration is the best option. You don’t have to deal with any odor as experienced with smoking or vaping. That’s why we selected the best range of hemp tinctures that you can administer sublingually.

Multiple Choices

As stated earlier, our tinctures come in different varieties and flavors. Currently, you can find three types of CBD products on the market, but tinctures are available in three forms:

  • Full-spectrum
  • Broad-spectrum
  • Isolate

Each of these forms has its benefits but include minimal to no THC. (Our products allow a value of 0.3% or less THC).

Higher potency than other CBD products

Tinctures come in a variety of potencies and flavors. Some products will be 2000 mg, while some others are 300 mg in a bottle. You can check out our range of Helping Friendly tinctures to see and select your preferred dosage. 

Final Remark

There are many types of CBD products out there to reach homeostasis, but if you’re looking for a simple product that is easiest to use to meet your needs, you can begin with a tincture. 

Tinctures are helpful in many ways, and they are the options that are administered sublingually to produce a fast, long-lasting result. You can try tinctures to determine your minimum effective dose. It is also a discreet option to dose cannabis.
