V&You has a wide range of cannabidiol products available, a natural remedy that has been used as a calming agent, for pain relief and a raft of other purposes for decades.
Hemp CBD tincture is another version of this – a supercharged herbal remedy created by extracting the cannabidiol by using a combination of alcohol and water. There are also alcohol-free variants that use materials like vinegar, glycerin or oil as the method to extract the CBD, but these are not always as potent or effective as alternative versions.
When dropped under the tongue, this liquid has proven to be extremely effective in relieving pain and easing anxiety with few side effects and only natural materials used.
And like traditional products, there is no Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) present so there is no high, no altered mental state or any of the effects of the recreational drug. It uses a completely different compound from the cannabis/marijuana plant.
WHAT ARE THE SIDE EFFECTS OF OUR ORGANIC CBD TINCTURE
These formulas are largely free of side effects, although it’s always important to understand whether it can have an impact on your individual situation. For example, it can interfere with your liver's ability to process other medications, especially when taken at high doses. Our brand abides by the current UK Government’s advice and recommend; therefore, we do not recommend exceeding a daily dose of 70mg.
It is always recommended you speak to your GP before taking this product, especially if you are taking any other form of medication.
WHAT IS A TINCTURE?
While oil and tinctures share many of the same benefits, there are also key distinctions between the two. The first is the way that you ingest the products. While both can be taken through droplets under the tongue, oil can also be vapourised. CBD tinctures, on the other hand, are too potent for that purpose.
Taste is another defining feature and that is where tinctures are a better option, as oil can be unpleasant on the tongue. The alcohol in organic or hemp CBD tinctures not only make this product more potent, but it also extends the shelf life because it acts as a preservative.
Ultimately, though, it always comes down to personal preference.
