Are Strong CBD Oils and Tinctures Right for Me?
Cannabidiol (CBD) oil is a compound found naturally in hemp. CBD belongs to a larger family of perhaps 100 or more compounds known as cannabinoids, all of which are found in hemp. CBD, however, is known to have natural properties providing a wide variety of potential benefits, such as relieving stress, supporting recovery from exercise-induced inflammation, and improving focus.
CBD oil is made by extracting the oil from flowers of the hemp plant. As opposed to gummies and supplements, CBD oil is the most potent and expensive product. Some CBD oils are manufactured mainly with Hemp oil but that can also be made with carrier oils, such as MCT oil or coconut oil. In addition to the beneficial cannabinoids, CBD oil also contains fatty acids and nutrients and is easily added to food and drink recipes.
Hemp-derived CBD oil contains less than 0.3 percent THC, enabling it to provide therapeutic benefits without any psychoactive effects or worries for those subject to drug testing. As a result, thousands are turning to CBD products, such as oils, tinctures and edible supplements, to help them lead a healthier, more active life in a completely natural way.
Another benefit of CBD oil is it offers high bioavailability. Bioavailability refers to your body’s ability to absorb and use the essential active ingredients of the administered compound.
CBD oils are available in different strengths varying from moderate to highly potent ― providing a wide range of choices for both experienced and novice users. Many CBD oil manufacturers offer oil products typically ranging from 250 mg to 3,500 mg in strength. High-strength product offerings are usually in the 2,000 mg to 3,500 mg range.
However, not everyone responds to CBD in the same way and the market is saturated with many different strengths of CBD oils and tinctures, making it hard to decide which products are best suited to provide individual results. Choosing the right high-strength product comes down to quality, purity and the right potency to support your health and overall wellness.
The quality of the product also depends on the method by which CBD oil is extracted from the hemp plant. Some companies cut corners by using solvents like propane or butane, which can be harmful to your health. Oliver’s Harvest CBD oil is extracted using only organic ethanol. This extraction process ensures production of the most organic and naturally pure CBD oil products on the market to support your wellness goals.
How do I Choose the Right Strength CBD?
With so many different concentrations of CBD oil and tinctures on the market, choosing the right one for your personal wellness needs can seem daunting.
CBD oils and tinctures typically come in dropper bottles with concentrations ranging from about 250 mg to 3,500 mg of CBD per bottle. While higher doses may offer a more pronounced effect, it’s generally recommended that novices, new to the benefits of CBD oil, choose products with lower concentrations.
For new users of CBD oil, it’s best to gradually work your way up in concentration and dosage, observe the results, and make necessary adjustments as you go along. Experienced users of CBD oil and tinctures may need more highly concentrated products to feel the most benefit.
Many choose to consume high-strength tinctures and oils from dropper bottles by placing a dose under the tongue and waiting 30 seconds before swallowing. This allows the CBD oil to be absorbed rapidly by the tiny capillaries located under your tongue and deliver benefits faster.
Why Would Anyone Want Higher Strength CBD?
Studies have shown that CBD oil interacts directly with receptors in our endocannabinoid system (ECS), a system comprised of a network of receptors responsible for regulating vital functions such as sleep cycles, inflammatory response, and stress levels. CBD has been shown to support a healthy endocannabinoid system, which may, in turn, help regulate all functions associated with the ECS and maintain internal stability over time.
That said, a high-concentration CBD oil or tincture may be required to alleviate stronger symptoms of pain, anxiety, inflammation and more. Highly concentrated CBD oils and tinctures may also work with the ECS to provide relief faster and with fewer doses of CBD products.
Beyond providing a greater effect, especially for stronger symptoms associated with pain, anxiety, arthritis, and inflammation, high-strength CBD oils and tinctures may provide better value and save you money in the long run. For example, it’s possible you may see good results with a lower dose and have use of a bottle lasting for a few months than if you bought a low concentration CBD oil.
