Oil drops and tinctures are CBD lifestyle favorites. Taking CBD in oil is a quick and seamless way to reap the benefits of pure hemp extract and it gives CBD novices and experts the ability to measure their own doses accurately and seamlessly. Plus, CBD oil can be taken in a myriad of ways and those with a thirst for creativity get a kick out of their options when it comes to CBD.
One of the reasons CBD oil drops are fabulous is because they’re simple to integrate into the routine of almost any lifestyle. Oil drops can be mixed into beverages or ice cubes, sprinkled over food, or just taken straight. Sláinte!
How are CBD drops made?
CBD drops are made by extracting CBD from the hemp plant and combining it with a carrier oil, such as hemp seed or coconut oil. The potencies of CBD oil can vary—in short, higher potency drops contain a higher concentration of extracted CBD whereas lower potency drops are more diluted with the carrier oil and other supplements.
The Social CBD Unflavored Isolate CBD Drops, for example, are available in potencies ranging from 250mg to 2,000mg of Isolate CBD. The carrier for our Isolate CBD Drops is MCT coconut oil, which is an easily digestible fat that is quick to enter the bloodstream and has been shown to promote energy.
The other version of our oil drops is the Broad-Spectrum Drops which are made from extracting CBD as well as other compounds from the hemp plant. Broad-spectrum CBD creates what’s known as the “entourage effect” which means that elements of the hemp plant become enhanced when used simultaneously.
How do you take CBD drops?
Like most CBD products, drops tend to be most effective with regular use. Once you have decided on the best potency for your lifestyle, take a 1mL dropper by mouth to dose. If you’d like to mix up your routine, consider mixing your dose into a hot cup of tea or a nice icy beverage. Since the CBD drops are ingested orally you can opt to place the drops right under your tongue or get creative!
After some practice, you’ll get a better sense of how you want to incorporate CBD into your lifestyle. Many CBD consumers enjoy their CBD in the morning with a cup of coffee while others prefer to take it to unwind before bed or decompress after a long day. It may take some experimentation before you choose how CBD can best serve your routine, but with some practice, CBD oil can become a simple addition to your daily grind.
Which is better: tinctures or capsules?
How you take CBD really comes down to personal preference. While we can’t answer that for you, we can say that a lot of people love CBD oil drops for their versatility. Capsules may win in convenience and straightforwardness, but CBD oil drops and tinctures leave some room for play and individuality. If you want to experiment with a few CBD flavors before deciding on what full size to buy, you may look into an option like the Social CBD Broad-Spectrum Drops Starter Pack, which will give you a taste of Unflavored, Vanilla Mint, Pomegranate Tea and Meyer Lemon flavors.
After trying a few new flavors, you may discover your signature CBD mocktail, or you may decide you like to shoot it straight. Either way, oils are a fun way to bring CBD into your everyday routine.
