The oil dropper format is one of the bestselling CBD products on the market and is what most people think of when they are looking to purchase CBD for the first time.
Why take CBD Oil Drops (Tinctures) under the tongue (sub-lingually)?
Taking CBD under your tongue (via the sub-lingual, mucous membrane) is useful when you need a rapid effect versus the slower effect of swallowing it (ingesting through your stomach). In the case of tinctures, part of the cannabinoids are absorbed into the blood stream in the mucous membrane under your tongue and part of them are slowly absorbed into the blood through the gastric walls in the stomach.
Absorption under the tongue takes less than two minutes versus delayed absorption of around 20 minutes through swallowing it, which takes around twenty minutes.
