CBD Tincture Review: If You Can’t Beat ‘Em, Oil ‘Em

The idea of CBD tinctures confused me at first – at no point in my day do I take a drop of, well, anything, and put it under my tongue.  Sure, I can get used to the idea of rubbing a CBD-based cream on my face as part of my skincare routine, but dropping oils under my tongue?  It seemed bizarre.

Fast forward a year and it’s part of my wellness routine.  Tinctures are easy to use, but not necessarily easy to make part of your routine. Before I go into “what’s hot and what’s not,” I think it’s worth spending a few minutes discussing how to make the adjustment.

I put my oils next to my daily vitamins, and started with just one drop under the tongue per day.  After my first month using tinctures, I upgraded to two drops under the tongue per day.  I began to eventually enjoy the orange-citrusy treat I gave to myself each morning.  It’s important to try tinctures out to see what kinds of flavors you enjoy the most.  I wouldn’t dive right into the lemon, orange or fruit-flavored tinctures until you try the “natural” CBD oils.  You might discover that you don’t want to drop anything under your tongue, and maybe would like a splash with your morning OJ.  

CBD Tinctures are used by applying drops in your mouth and allowing the oil to absorb through your mucus membranes.  It is a fast way to take in CBD – if you need relief quickly, this is probably the best way to take your daily dose of CBD.  Remember to shake these tinctures up before you use them.  

Now for the fun part.  Below, you’ll find a list of our favorite CBD tinctures on the market.

1. CorVash Farms CBD Tincture

Flavor: Natural
Relax & Refocus
1500 mg
Full Spectrum
Organic Non-GMO

At 1500 mg, this is the most robust CBD tincture we’ve gotten our hands on.  It has a rich green hemp color and taste.  The relaxing effects hit fast – you’ll feel an impact within 20 minutes at the most.  Check out our link to our Peanut Butter Cups recipe here:  We love using Corvash Farms CBD tincture with our PB cups!

2. Funky Farms Lemon Limón CBD Tincture 
Flavor: Lemon Limón
500 mg

These tincture drops from Funky Farms pack a bang of flavor and are actually really smooth going down. It’s a very thin oil that absorbs with a sort of citrus-melon taste. All of our reviewers said they needed a full dropper to feel the effects of the CBD. Our team loves taking a few drops of these before bed as it quickly provides a calming, elevated but subtle & sleepy euphoria.

3. Lord Jones Royal Oil CBD Tincture

Flavor: Natural
1000 mg

This multi-purpose oil has a light cannabis scent and an orange-green tone. Our most popular use for this type of tincture is as face oil, although you can rub it anywhere you feel dry or irritated. You can also work this oil into many beauty routines with a jade facial roller and apply lightly before using moisturizer or cream. We love incorporating Lord Jones into a skincare routine but have also tried it as a beverage booster and applied it under the the tongue. The branding is reminiscent of House Baratheon from Game of Thrones. Lord Jones is on the expensive end and available at Sephora.

4.  Pure Spectrum Hemp Oil Tincture

Flavor: Natural
500 mg

This brand tells the world that “Not all CBD is created equal,” and so right they are. With less than 0.3% THC, their organically grown and extracted oil can be taken orally (mL measurements are on the dropper) or added to food. Our favorite way to use it: infuse it into homemade chocolate peanut butter cups. Like other tinctures, it can also be added to beverages or below the tongue.

So there you have it – our first round of CBD tincture reviews. We’ll release a new round of reviews in a few weeks!  There’s tons of CBD tinctures on the market, and we’re still sifting through the products. See you soon!
