When it comes to effectiveness, high potency plays a strong role in the benefits of your CBD tincture. The higher the potency, the more effect is going to be produced. The Living Naturals chocolate mint extra strength tincture formula is available in three ultra-strong choices! Each 0.5ml dose of this maximum strength oil contains 50mg of CBD Isolate and is suspended in a light, tasteless rice bran oil.

What is CBD Oil?

CBD is made from extracting the cannabinoids from the hemp plant.  CBD interacts with receptors in your endocannabinoid system, which sends signals between your cells to help regulate functions including movement, mood, homeostasis, and immune system.

How to Use a Tincture

To get the most out of your tincture, it is important that you do not just swallow it. Instead, you will need to hold the oil under your tongue as long as possible. The reason you do not want to swallow it is that CBD oil can be broken down by your digestive enzymes. So, how long should you hold the tincture under your tongue? While some researchers suggest upwards of 3-4 minutes, we find that 20-30 seconds is a sufficient amount of time to get into your bloodstream. This causes the CBD to act more like a topical and less like an edible, which takes the longest of any application method to reach full effect.

Do You Need High Potency CBD?

For those who require prescription pain killers or have high tolerance levels, a strong tincture is recommended. Other factors such as the type of benefit you are seeking also come into play. For example, if you are looking for a tincture to help you sleep, a strong dose is commonly recommended. However, if you are someone who is looking for daytime benefits such as alert, focus, or energizing, we suggest a lower milligram tincture such as our 16.7mg per serving tincture.
