CBD oil tinctures are taken the same way as CBD oils. It’s a specialized oil mixed with carrying agents like alcohol or flavored oils (fruit and mint are common). They are usually in liquid form and usually come with a dropper, you may see some packaged in sprays or in pump bottles.
You can take cannabinoid extract through sublingual application. This method of administering substances via the mouth means that substances are rapidly absorbed via the blood vessels under the tongue rather than via the digestive tract. When used this way, the cannabinoids in the tincture are absorbed by membranes under the tongue and on the insides of the cheeks.
Here’s how to apply a tincture sublingually:
- Shake well before use.
- Load up the dropper with the desired amount, and squirt under your tongue.
- Make sure to keep the oil there for at least 20 seconds.
- You can swish the remaining oil around your mouth before swallowing it.
- Through the sublingual application, the effects of a tincture can usually be felt within roughly 30 minutes and can last for as long as 3 hours.
Mix it with your favorite food or drink:
Another quick way to use tinctures is by swallowing it and waiting for its effects. When swallowed, tinctures take significantly longer to work and follow the same timeline as edibles. If you swallow your tincture, you can expect to feel effects within 1–2 hours and for effects to last upwards of 5–6 hours.
Likewise, if you don’t want a sublingual application or direct swallowing of the CBD oil, you can opt to add it to your food or drink. You may dilute the tincture in a small amount of water, juice, tea, smoothie, or coffee to mask its natural taste. It can also be mixed with your pudding or yogurt.
When adding hemp-derived extracts to food or drink, the onset will be similar to that of edibles. The ratio of cannabinoids varies from person to person. We recommend you start with 10 mg. CBD when adding it to food or drink.

- When taken sublingually, tinctures are quick to absorb.
- For both beginners and experienced cannabinoid users, tinctures tend to be a very affordable option.
