CBD oil drops, typically referred to as CBD tinctures, are often formulated with cannabidiol, otherwise known as CBD, as well as a fat such as coconut oil. The tincture may also include other elements such as flavoring and other nutritious essential oils from herbs and plants. At Social CBD, we use MCT oil, which is refined coconut oil that allows for timely bloodstream absorption.
We also use a variety of herbs that assist with wellness in unique ways. Depending on the purpose and function of each of our drops, different herbs are used in different formulas. For example, our Lemon Ginger Isolate CBD Drops contain ginger and turmeric which have been shown to help alleviate stomach discomfort.
Conversely, our Lavender Isolate CBD Oil Drops contain chamomile and passionflower, which have been known throughout history to help encourage rest, contentment and wellbeing, particularly through teas. Oil is a flexible way to relish in the joys of CBD since you can take the tincture as is, or sprinkle it into your favorite hot or cold beverages including morning coffee, midway lemon water or bedtime tea.
If you’re feeling overwhelmed by information about CBD and don’t want to try anything risky, you can rest assured that CBD does not have any psychoactive effects on the body. Social CBD products contain 0.0% THC, which is the hallucinogenic compound in cannabis. Without THC, people can appreciate the benefits of CBD without indulging in psychoactive substances.
Your CBD serving is going to depend on your individual preference. We always recommend starting small and increasing your serving as needed. If it’s your first time trying CBD, you may want to begin with a 500mg isolate bottle. At this level, each one-drop tincture dose would include 16.7mg of CBD. This is a comfortable place to start, and once you feel more secure, you can up your serving as needed.
As you’re shopping for CBD tinctures, you will see terms including “Isolate CBD” and “Broad-Spectrum CBD.” Isolate CBD is made with oil that uses CBD in its purest crystal form. Broad-spectrum, on the other hand, includes a range of beneficial compounds found in the cannabis plant. Many people take pleasure in the multi-use benefits of broad-spectrum CBD from stress relief to appetite support to fulfilling sleep.
If you’re just dipping your toes in the big wide world of CBD oil, we’re happy for you—it’s a portable and highly versatile addition to your holistic health routine. Just make sure you store it in a cool, dry place.
