The Guide to Internal CBD Tinctures

IMG_7818.JPG

As we’ve continued to expand our CBD apothecary and introduce new varieties and brands, we thought it would be helpful to refresh you all on the whats and the whys of this plant medicine — specifically as it pertains to our internal tinctures. Our Boketto CBD Guide details nearly every form of CBD-based product that we carry (or have carried at some point), so that may also be a helpful resource as you navigate towards finding the system of support that’s ideal for you — whether that be a tincture, topical body oil or salve, or edible treat, like our favorite Plant People CBD Olive OIl.

CBD tinctures are liquid supplements that contain a very potent cannabidiol content. They are not psychoactive, and therefore will not get you high like THC. As sourced directly from our retail partners at Calyx Wellness, Cannabidiol, commonly referred to as CBD, is a molecular compound found in the cannabis and hemp plant proven to be an effective holistic treatment for a wide range of health conditions, ailments, and diseases. CBD has been scientifically proven to modulate and repair many physiological systems in the human brain and body, through the endocannabinoid system, which is made up of several receptors that react only to cannabinoids, such as CBD and the more well-known compound, THC (tetrahydrocannabinol). This is why these plant-based compounds have been known to help ease the pain of various medical conditions. The key difference between CBD and THC is that unlike THC, CBD is 100% non-psychoactive and does not produce the adverse sensation of being “high.”

CBD has been shown to be an effective treatment for various acute and chronic conditions, including but not limited to:

  • Pain management

  • Anxiety

  • Depression

  • Addiction

  • Neurological support

  • Dermatological support

  • Performance

  • Women’s menstural and reproductive support (including PMS, menopause, and endometriosis)

  • Arthritis

  • Osteoporosis

  • Asthma

  • Psoriasis

  • Anorexia

  • Nausea

  • Alcoholism

  • PTSD

  • Schizophrenia

Our brief guide to Internal CBD Tinctures below details the current products that we carry at Boketto, along with helpful information on its sourcing, cannabinoids, and conditions that they are best suited for.

Their unique process allows them to extract and formulate cannabinoids to terpenes to create desired effects in sublingual and topical applications.

Terpenes are the primary constituents of the essential oils found in the cannabis plant and contain medicinal properties that are independent from cannabinoids with the ability to increase energy levels, improve mood, and relax the body and mind.

SOUL ADDICT

Soul Addict is a new age hemp wellness brand based in Asheville, North Carolina helping women find their inner calm, chill bliss through the plant magic of USA farmed CBD products. Soul Addict products are sourced from small farms in Colorado farming under the federal pilot program initiative to research industrial hemp plants. They’re also one of the first women-founded, women-owned companies to receive their license from the NC Hemp Commission to begin farming hemp for CBD under the Federal Hemp Pilot Program in Western North Carolina beginning May 2018!

They use full spectrum and whole-plant CBD extracts for nutrient bioavailability and their products contain CBD and naturally occurring nutrients — including amino acids, chlorophyll, vitamins (including B1, B2, B6, D), trace minerals (including iron, zinc, calcium, magnesium, potassium), fatty acids (including omega 3 & 6), beta-carotene, flavonoids, ketones, and terpenes.

  • SOUL ADDICT 250 mg is a travel-friendly and affordable way to implement CBD into your daily routine. Best suited for circumstantial anxiety and stress, this fast-acting CBD tincture promotes a nearly instantaneous dose of chill. It has a general mellowing affect and we’e found that it is best taken on an as-needed basis

  • SOUL ADDICT 500mg is a 60mL bottle that contains the same pure bliss as the 30mL bottle and targeted towards the same circumstantial bouts of anxiety and stress

While Soul Addict’s use as a daily tincture is the best method of consumption (in our opinion), it works well as a culinary ingredient, blending well into daily smoothies, teas, juices and elixirs in addition to raw foods. (Note: you don’t want to heat any CBD, as it will alter and deplete the cannabinoid’s essence and potency).
