This innovative and quality-tested tincture was designed with health-conscious consumers in mind. The calibrated dropper allows the CBD to be taken quickly and in easily determined measurements. Therefore, you will know exactly how much CBD you are taking.
Suggested use is once or twice daily, as needed. Place the oil directly under the tongue and keep in your mouth for 1.5 minutes or more before swallowing. During this time, increase absorption by vigorously swishing the oil around your mouth and even between your teeth — this increases the surface contact between the oil and your capillaries.
By taking CBD in a tincture the CBD is absorbed directly into your bloodstream from capillary-rich areas underneath the tongue, along the gums and cheek. From here, it avoids first-pass metabolism and is sent throughout your body. This route gets CBD into your bloodstream faster than swallowing. However, because most of the CBD will eventually be swallowed, peak bloodstream levels range from 0.5 – 5 hours meaning the effects are felt in 30 minutes and last approximately 5-6 hours depending on strength of dose taken.
Please be aware that food affects your body’s ability to absorb CBD, and more cannabinoids are absorbed on a full stomach. CBD is fat-soluble, and consuming with a healthy dose of fats can increase the amount of CBD that reaches your bloodstream 3-fold — which is why their tincture contains MCT coconut oil. Also, researchers discovered that the total amount of absorbed CBD increases 5-fold if the person has recently eaten.
