You’ve just purchased your very first CBD tincture and you’re wondering when you’re actually supposed to take this. You’ve read some conflicting information about CBD and have heard different reports from friends about how it works and what they treat with it. You’re nervous to take it in the morning in case it makes you sleepy, but don’t want to take it at night if it has the potential to keep you from a solid night of great sleep. Can taking it in the afternoon be the answer? What if it makes you feel “high?”

If you’re holding the tincture in your hand scared to open it, have no fear. You’re about to embark on a holistic health journey that will leave you feeling more complete, more grounded, and less anxious on a daily basis.

A Little Primer on CBD


CBD is a cannabinoid (a naturally occurring chemical compound) found in the hemp variety of the cannabis-sativa plant. This particular variety produces plants rich in antioxidant-laden CBD, and very little THC (the psychoactive component of marijuana that gives users a “high”). Your CBD tincture will contain a CBD oil that is likely either broad spectrum or full spectrum. Full spectrum CBD oils contain a trace amount (less than .3% by federal law) of THC. This isn’t enough to produce any type of psychoactive effect in the user, but is enough to produce the coveted “entourage effect.”

The entourage effect refers to the maximum benefit a CBD oil user can get from using CBD oil, and it is said to only occur when CBD oil is extracted in full spectrum formulas. This means the CBD oil is extracted along with all other usable plant parts like flavonoids, terpenes, fibers, nutrients, and a trace amount of THC. When these parts work concurrently together, the entourage effect takes place. However, take note that if you cannot use THC in any amount, a broad spectrum CBD oil will be your best option. It will contain all other plant parts except for any THC.

Why Do People Use CBD Oil?


People have been using CBD oil for centuries. The ancients were aware of its soothing properties and how it delivered an all-over feeling of well-being. The real turn of events for CBD usage came in the 1940’s when chemist Roger Adams isolated CBD from the hemp plant and found it had potential health benefits. After decades of government regulation and prohibition of hemp, in 2018 it was finally approved for commercial production, and the rest, as they say, is history.

People take CBD oil for a variety of reasons. Here are some of the most popular.

Everyday pain relief. If you’re looking for a non-narcotic, all-natural way to alleviate everyday aches and pains, CBD oil may be able to help. In fact, in studies with patients treated with CBD showed significant pain reduction for common aches and sores. CBD can be taken orally or used topically as a cream to help temporarily alleviate pain in sore muscles and joints.

Mental wellness. Possibly one of the most popular uses of CBD oil is as an all-natural, plant-based booster of mental wellness. When tested on patients who experienced anxiousness associated with public speaking, the patients who took CBD felt calmer when they spoke compared to those who used the placebo.

Sleep quality. Many people struggling with sleep quality have turned to CBD oil to help ease them into a peaceful night of sleep. CBD has an overall calming effect, which can help a body that is already relaxed and ready for sleep to fall asleep, and stay asleep, studies show.

Skin health. CBD’s natural soothing properties make it a great option for skin that is red or irritated. CBD naturally calms the skin, and it’s packed full of antioxidants, which help rejuvenate skin and protect it from outside irritants. Additionally, because CBD is an oil, it is excellent at cleansing skin that is prone to overproducing oil. Oil dissolves other oils, which means that it is effective in removing excess oil from acne-prone areas of your skin, and helping your skin regulate its oil production. This can mean a more even complexion, and over time, less acne.

Anti-aging benefits. Because CBD is full of antioxidants and plant botanicals, it is a great ingredient to use in anti-aging moisturizers and serums. Applying CBD topically can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and can also give skin an overall more even-looking tone. Ask any topical CBD user and they’ll happily tell you about the “CBD glow” they get from using CBD based skincare products.

What is a CBD Tincture?


A tincture is a highly concentrated formula of CBD oil, typically mixed in with another ingredient. Some tinctures contain alcohol, however, QULCBD’s tinctures are effective without alcohol, and instead, use MCT (multi-chain triglyceride) oil as the solvent in which our CBD oil is dissolved. Tinctures can also contain flavors to support specific tastes. This makes them a great idea for drinks and food.

While a tincture can be added to food or drink, it can also be taken sublingually. This means you can simply take it by placing a few drops under your tongue. This can be a great way to get CBD into your system quickly and effectively. Some users prefer to take CBD sublingually as they feel it delivers the CBD to them faster.

When Should I Take CBD Oil?


The question of when to take CBD oil is really a matter of personal preference. It depends on which of CBD’s benefits you are looking to gain. Taking CBD in the morning is a preferred method for people who are looking to experience the full range of benefits CBD has to offer throughout their day. As such, people who take CBD in the morning say they feel an overall sense of well-being and calmness during their entire day. Many people like to take this like a supplement.

If you want to start taking CBD in the morning, start lightly in case the calming effects of CBD really relax you more than you expect. It’s best to start with a small dose and build up a tolerance. You can also take CBD in the afternoon if you wish to enhance your CBD experience later throughout the day. It may be a more effective method for you to take CBD in the afternoon if taking it in the morning makes you slightly tired.

Taking CBD in the evening is a very popular option. Some users like to take CBD as a type of “nightcap,” and say that it helps prepare their bodies and minds for sleep. Additionally, if you experience the calming effects of CBD more than other users, you may prefer to take your CBD supplement in the evenings, effectively relaxing you after your day and helping you calm down before bed.

No matter when you decide to take your tincture, you should always take the first dose carefully. Even though CBD is generally well tolerated by practically everyone, you’ll want to make sure you don’t experience any side effects. CBD is gentle, yet potent. As such, you should only take the recommended dosage on your packaging from your manufacturer.

If you are using CBD topically, you can be a little more liberal in your usage and application. CBD skincare products are great ways to keep your skin healthy without the use of harsh chemicals or unnatural ingredients which may have side effects you don’t want.

CBD is a great product with a plethora of health, wellness, and beauty benefits from which practically anyone can benefit. You can take CBD as a supplement to your wellness at any time of day, depending on which benefit you are seeking from the CBD product. But, you should also test your CBD usage to see how your own body chemistry reacts to it. If you experience extreme relaxation, for example, you will likely want to take your CBD in the evenings. Using CBD is a great way to take care of your body, mind, and soul in a natural, holistic manner, so come discover the benefits of CBD today with QULCBD!
