Unsurprisingly, CBD is growing in popularity for its purported health benefits. Some derivatives are even said to help relieve cancer-related symptoms. However, with the wide selection of CBD products, it's hard not to feel overwhelmed.
There are CBD oils infused with CBD gum and chocolate and now CBD oil tinctures which contain all the rich benefits of the cannabis plant in large concentrations and are used orally.

Some important things to know before looking at it, starting with these basics.
Many people are confused by the two products. Some have even called them interchangeable, but who can criticise them? Both are kept in the same bottle and the planting procedure is practically the same. The main difference, however, is how each extracts the herbal components from cannabis.
Simply put, a tincture is made by dipping the cannabis plant in an alcoholic, watery solution. To make CBD oil, the plant extract is poured into a carrier such as coconut, olive oil, or linseed.
Always check the label before buying a CBD tincture.
An interesting study found that only 30 percent of CBD products were accurately labeled. This means that you need to be very careful when buying your tincture.
One of the things to watch out for is a Certificate of Analysis, or COA, which shows the tincture content of the cannabinoid and its overall purity.
Tinctures should be given in small doses.
Tinctures are highly concentrated, so it's important to drink them in small doses. While you can't overdose on tincture, it's better to be safe and limit yourself. If you are using the tincture for therapeutic purposes, large doses are also not necessary.
