Isolate or full spectrum, terpenes or original, and then there are the endless choices of dosage - as little as 25 milligrams per 30 milliliters up to a whopping 5000 milligrams.

CBD Oil and Pain Relief

In recent months numerous studies have featured cannabidiol (CBD) oil for pain and their effect on pain relief to assist those suffering from chronic pain.

What Is A CBD Oil Tincture?

While today’s CBD oil ‘tinctures’ commonly contain a hemp derived compound combined with a suspension such as coconut (medium chain triglycerides or MTC) oil, traditional tinctures consist of medicinal herbs, cannabis or other, dissolved in alcohol. With CBD oil tinctures in particular, cannabidiol extracts are used, either an isolate containing exclusively CBD, a broad spectrum containing additional cannabinoids other than THC, or a full spectrum containing up to 0.3% THC.
