CBD Tincture FAQs

What is CBD Tincture?

CBD tincture is an extract derived from hemp plants. A close relative to cannabis, hemp contains minimal THC, which is the compound responsible for the ‘high’ typically associated with marijuana use.

What’s the Difference Between Tincture & Oil

Tinctures use alcohol as a base, but oils use hemp oil instead. Both are liquid. Both contain hemp extract.

What is CBD Tincture used for?

Organa Hemp tincture can be used to support relief of a variety of ailments in addition wellness & to promote general health. We hear of many people who use tincture to relieve muscle pain, soothe arthritis and joint pain. CBD tincture is also popular for relaxation.

What are the classifications of CBD extracts?

CBD extracts are generally grouped into three categories, according to their contents:

  1. crystalline isolate
  2. broad-spectrum
  3. full-spectrum

Crystalline isolates are pure white crystals, like salt. This is completely pure CBD and has no traces of THC or any other cannabinoid. They are completely safe for use, even if you are required to take a drug test. CBD isolates have been thoroughly refined. Though purity is an advantage, there are disadvantages too, such as the fact that you can’t fully experience the entourage effect. In fact, you would have to take really high doses to notice any curative effects at all.

Broad-spectrum CBD extracts contain all useful cannabinoids such as CBD, CBG, CBN, and CBC but do not contain THC at all. They are a fairly recent alternative to full-spectrum extracts for users who still want to experience the entourage effect but without any psychoactive element. It is a great choice for that purpose. The entourage effect refers to the potency of phytocannabinoids being greater when they are taken together and at once, rather than separately.

Full-spectrum CBD extracts are so-called because they contain all the necessary and useful cannabinoids, including CBD, CBG, CBN, CBC, and THC, among others. Of course, the THC content is kept below 0.3%. This allows users of full-spectrum products to experience the entourage effect to the fullest. Our CBD tinctures and oils are refined full-spectrum products.

How is CBD extracted?

Co2 Extraction

This extraction takes advantage of a specific feature of CO2 (Carbon dioxide) which allows it to function in any of the liquid, solid and gas states. Thus, it is referred to as ‘supercritical’. Some people also refer to CO2 extraction as ‘Supercritical Fluid Extraction’ (SFE).

Basically, the idea is to set down three pumps, one for solid CO2, another for the cannabis plant material, and the third for the actual extraction.

First, the solid CO2 in the first chamber is pumped into the second, and pressure is applied. This transforms the CO2 into a liquid state so that it can absorb the oil and flavors in the plant. This mixture (CO2 and hemp oil) is transferred into the third chamber where further pressure is applied. As the heat rises, the CO2 transforms into gas and evaporates, leaving just the hemp oil along with all the flavors.

It is a simple process and the purest extraction methods because it leaves no unwanted residue in the oil. It is also very efficient as one can achieve a high concentration of CBD (92%) in the eventual oil product. The only major downside of this method is that the equipment is expensive. Nevertheless, it is the best method of extraction.

Solvent Extraction (Not Used by Organa Hemp Co.)

Solvent Extraction involves the use of hydrocarbon or other natural solvents (ethanol, butane, isopropyl alcohol, etc.) it was invented in the 1960s originally for metal extraction. The equipment used is the closed-loop extractor, a special device for extracting solvents from solid substances.

While it is cheaper than the CO2 extraction, it carries more risks. For one, there may be unwanted residue and impurities from the solvent used left in the extracted oil. This can be very toxic when consumed. Likewise, being a very harsh method of extraction, chlorophyll stripped from the plant may be left in the oil. This would give the oil an unpleasant, bitter taste. However, this can be mitigated using a high-grade solvent.

Oil (Infusion) Extraction

This is the most straightforward extraction method. It is so easy that anyone can replicate it in their home kitchen. In fact, it is the most ancient extraction method, tracing its history back centuries ago.

The first step is to get a suitable plant-based oil to serve as a carrier, usually olive oil but others like coconut oil may suffice.

Also, before the extraction, the hemp plant material must be decarboxylated. This simply means to heat the plant to a temperature at which the compounds would be activated. For instance, CBD is the activated form of raw cannabidiolic acid (CBDa). The same goes for other cannabinoids.

Then the hemp plant material is steeped into the oil so that the latter can absorb the cannabinoids and other compounds, nutrients, and flavors from the former. The mixture is heated at about 100°C for an hour or two. Though ineffective, this method results in less potent CBD oil because most of the cannabinoids are retained in the plant. Two, the carrier oil cannot be evaporated from the CBD oil.

How should I store my CBD tincture?

CBD tincture is better kept in a dark place at room temperature. We don’t recommend storing your CBD oil in the refrigerator, or outside when it’s cold. Do not freeze your oil, that could spoil it.

It’s best stored in the container it arrives in. Failing that you can use a dark (not clear) glass jar or bottle to protect it from sunlight. It is very important you make sure you keep it out of reach of children and pets.

CBD oil stays good for about 12 months, so be sure to use it before then!
