Hemp Tinctures: How Hemp Can Boost Your Mental Health?

Hemp tinctures are liquid concentrates of CBD that you can use orally. This means they have more potential than just being used topically, like the salves and creams we discussed earlier. Today, we’ll explain what hemp tincture is and how hemp tinctures work.

What Is A Hemp Tincture?

Hemp tinctures are concentrated extracts made from hemp plants. They may be taken orally or applied to the skin for absorption. The oils come in varying concentrations, so you must pay attention to the dosage recommendations on the bottle before using them.

It’s also good to check with your doctor before taking these supplements if you have a history of medical conditions and take prescription medications since they can interact with some components found in hemp oil products.

One big reason people take CBD is its ability to boost mental health by reducing anxiety, depression, and stress levels without having negative side effects like psychoactive drugs do when used incorrectly or excessively.

For example, one study showed how people were able to reduce anxiety and depression symptoms after suffering from social stress by taking CBD oil.

How Do Hemp Tinctures Work?

Tinctures have been around for a long time. They work because the cannabinoids in hemp oil are soluble in alcohol and act as an extractor of sorts when mixed with it.

CBD tinctures can be taken orally or dissolved under your tongue (sublingual method). Either way, they get into your system quickly since they’re directly absorbed by the blood vessels underneath your tongue.

Once inside, these cannabinoid molecules interact with receptors throughout our brain and body, affecting sleep, mood, pain sensation, and inflammation.

This makes them effective alternatives for treating psychiatric conditions like anxiety disorders (Generalized Anxiety Disorder), depression symptoms, bipolar disorder, manic episodes, and even schizophrenia symptoms.

CBD hemp oil has been shown to improve sleep which in turn reduces insomnia. In addition, if you’re dealing with a condition like PTSD or OCD, CBD treatments can help reduce the anxiety associated with exposure therapy by targeting serotonin receptors in your brain. In other words, it helps lessen intrusive thoughts that make situations seem worse than they actually are (and cause panic attacks). It also increases dopamine levels and acts as an anti-inflammatory supplement overall!

The Bottom Line

Tinctures made from industrial hemp extract produce better results than ones derived from marijuana simply because it contains less THC—the cannabinoid responsible for causing intoxication when consumed excessively.
