Tincture is a widely misunderstood method of use. For dosing purposes, tincture and oil are interchangeable terms – while some differences in manufacturing exist, they’re taken the same way: sublingually. Sublingual is a fancy way to say “under your tongue.”
Tincture doses should be spaced out about 12 hours apart, or 6 hours apart, as needed. It takes anywhere from 30-90 minutes for the tincture to really begin moving throughout your system, and it’s important to keep that level going throughout the day.
Supplementing the tincture dosing scheduling as needed is an important step to regulating your endocannabinoid system. While a sublingual dose provides a quick onset and a slow absorption throughout the day, that’s often not enough to get us to our next dose. Enter microdosing, which is taking a fraction of the amount of a full dose, several times per day. This amount varies per individual.
Dosing tincture can seem tricky at first, but just pay attention to your product labeling. Most CBD tincture bottles are 30 mL, every bottle at ATLRx is the same size with different strengths. Good products have clear dosing instructions that are easy to understand and follow. ATLRx Tinctures provide measurement markings on the droppers for easy administration. Each bottle will tell you how many CBD milligrams is in each 1 mL dropper full, as well as the total number of milligrams within each bottle. With measurements right on the dropper, taking half, or even quarter doses is easy
