With all of the options that are available on the market, it can be challenging to find the right form of CBD that works for you. There are CBD drinks, oils, tinctures, lotions, gummies, and many other fun ways to experience CBD. Two of the more popular options around are tinctures and gummies. This leads to a legitimate question; which works better CBD tinctures or CBD gummies? Each of these options has its unique set of properties, so everything comes down to personal preference at the end of the day. However, it is worthwhile to take a closer look at each of them, so today we’re going to go over some of the pros and cons of each option.
CBD in Tincture Form
CBD tinctures are created by a process of extraction that uses a solvent such as ethanol or distilled alcohol. Some processes even go as far as to liquefy CO2 in a supercritical extraction process with elaborate technology and equipment. A tincture is a solution with hemp extract suspended within it. It is designed so that you can simply put a couple of drops under your tongue and go on with your day. The idea is that since the blood vessels under your tongue are so close to the surface that the liquid can penetrate them and enter your bloodstream in a manner of seconds. When the tincture goes straight to your bloodstream and bypasses your digestive system it becomes more available to your body and brings on its effects faster. Since going through your belly and fighting its way through your stomach acids can hinder the effects of the tincture, dropping it under the tongue strengthens its bioavailability and makes it more effective.
CBD in Gummy Form
CBD gummies can be made in a variety of ways, including gelatin and vegan alternatives. Just like any other CBD product, there are the options of full-spectrum, broad-spectrum, and isolate. Full-spectrum CBD gummies will have the full spectrum of the hemp plant within its extract including THC and all of the other cannabinoids that are available. Broad-spectrum will have most of the cannabinoids intact, except for THC. An isolate gummy will only have pure CBD without any other cannabinoids or flavonoids. CBD gummies can come in a plethora of flavors, colors, and styles. Because the hemp extract that is within them is protected in a body of gummy, it can withstand the stomach acids and be more available for the body in terms of absorption. A big reason why gummies are so popular is that you can’t taste the CBD inside of them and that they actually produce effects.
So Which One is Actually Better?
With something so subjective, it’s hard to say what is “better” or “worse” because this depends entirely on what you’re looking for. If you don’t mind the taste of hemp, would prefer your effects to hit you quickly and aren’t opposed to taking in a little alcohol if need be, tinctures could be your best option. If you don’t mind waiting a little bit longer for your CBD to take effect, and would rather the taste of whatever exotic flavor that you find, and want a perfectly calculated dose then gummies could be your best bet. All in all what really matters most is that the CBD that you put into your body is coming from a wholesome, trusted source that is free from toxins and harmful additives.
