For first-time users and more experienced consumers alike, the vast array of cannabidiol (CBD) products available today can easily become a bit confusing.
One final note: if you’re currently taking medication, it’s important to discuss CBD use with your doctor to determine if there might be any possible interactions between the CBD and your medication.
CBD tincture vs CBD oil
Ultimately, tinctures and CBD oil are similar in that they are both liquid forms of CBD extract, which can both be consumed in a variety of ways. The main differences have to do with how they are produced, and the type of liquid used to deliver the CBD to a consumer’s body.

Finally, it’s basically impossible to overdose on CBD, regardless of what form it’s in. Studies found that CBD had no adverse side effects at amounts up to 1200 milligrams daily, even when taken for several months.
How long CBD works in your body is a balance between how you ingest it and how quickly your body eliminates it. Some methods deliver a sharp, quick peak of CBD, while others offer a slow, steadier concentration.
That said, we recommend speaking with a trusted medical professional before embarking on your CBD journey .
What’s Your Time Frame?
Pathway to targets: When CBD is inhaled, it passes to the lungs where it rapidly passes into the bloodstream. Inhalation avoids first-pass metabolism.
Oral supplement a few hours before bedtime (lower doses can energize while higher doses encourage sleep)
Time-frame: For local targets like sexual pleasure or menstrual cramps, Foria’s Relief Suppositories with CBD and Awaken Arousal Oil with CBD are active within minutes (and possibly up to an hour) after application. Absorption into the bloodstream is highly variable and has only been studied rectally. Any molecules entering the bloodstream through the rectum should peak within 2-8 hours .
