Concentrated forms of CBD are most common in the application of oils taken orally, also known as tinctures. However, there are many ways in which CBD can be concentrated; including as a distillate, RSO, raw terpenes, spray, and in pure isolate form. CBD concentrates often are created to target specific ailments. For example, one might use a CBD tincture containing certain mushrooms in an attempt to boost the immune system. Another tincture might contain peppermint or ashwagandha root an effort to improve focus. The most sought out form of CBD is as a tincture because of the absorption time, absorption rate, and ease of use.

As mentioned previously, the most common CBD products purchased today are CBD tinctures. Tinctures are considered a sublingual because they absorb under the tongue through the same membrane the tongue drains blood through. This method allows for 15 – 20 minute absorption times (though this can vary) and bioavailability of about 20 – 35 percent. In other words, for every 50mg of CBD you intake sublingually, the bloodstream receives between 10 – 17.5 mg. The decent absorption rate and fast acting nature of tinctures are the reason they are so popular. If you are using a thicker form of CBD, usually delivered through a syringe, you would squirt a dab the size of a grain of rice on your finger and rub it on your gums–letting it sit there for absorption. CBD isolates and pure terpenes are used when one wants to make their own concoction. Sprays work similarly to tinctures, in that the intake is sublingual. A CBD spray is considered of exceptional quality when it immediately absorbs into your mouth. Good quality CBD sprays tend to have a higher bioavailability rate due to the ease of absorption.
When using a CBD tincture, drop anywhere from a quarter of a dropper to a full dropper (depending on the amount of CBD you want) under the tongue and hold it for 30 – 60 seconds. In an attempt to maximize your absorption rates, you can also swish the oil around your mouth or keep it for longer than 60 seconds sublingually. As mentioned previously, if you are using a thicker form of oil, often titled as RSO (Rick Simpson oil), then squirt a bit on the tip of your finger and rub it on your gums. CBD concentrates like CBD isolate or pure terpenes are used in a myriad of applications and their use is totally up to the user.
The value in CBD concentrate, particularly in CBD tinctures, is the fast absorption rate and high bioavailability. CBD taken sublingually tends to travel the body very well. As such, tinctures are suggested for almost every type of ailment CBD is known to help; whether it be Alzheimer’s, chronic pain or chronic fatigue, depression, stress, Arthritis, or bowel syndromes. As always, make sure to consult with your physician before or during the use of CBD concentrates, mainly if you are already on prescription medication.
