Tincture vs Softgels - What's best for me?
- Served in a bottle with a dropper, tincture is made for sublingual consumption. (under the tongue)
- Tincture allows you a more personal serving size. You can increase/decrease easily.
- Sublingual consumption means the CBD will enter the bloodstream more quickly than softgels. Typically you will receive effects as soon as 10-20 minutes.
- Tinctures may last a bit shorter than softgels, 4-6 hours.
- Always shake the tincture prior to using. This will ensure the distribution of CBD oil and other compounds throughout the carrier oil.
- Served in an easy to swallow capsule, softgels provide a consistent serving size time and again.
- Softgels have virtually no taste. This is a big pro for individuals who do not care of the taste of the tincture.
- Softgels take a bit longer to enter your system than tinctures, 20 minutes to an hour.
- Softgels may last longer than tinctures, 4-10 hours.
Both Tincture and Softgels are equally effective. Tincture might be better for someone who wants quicker absorption or would like to vary their dosing. Softgels might be better for someone looking for a consistent dose and a longer lasting effect.
