As you may or may not know, dropping CBD tincture into your gob is one of the most effective ways to consume the cannabinoid known as CBD. They call that a sublingual application—dropping the CBD oil under your tongue.

It’s not the only way to take a tincture of CBD (you can also add it to your smoothies or meals—you name it) but it’s potentially the most fun. Because who doesn’t love using a glass dropper? Find them! You can’t.

But why would you want to drop some oil under your tongue? Because it works so fast, thanks to all the thin tissues in your mouth. These tissues absorb the CBD in liquids a lot more easily than say, the CBD in a cookie that needs to be digested by your stomach first. Win!

This efficacy is also the reason why so many CBD users prefer ingestion via tinctures versus other methods. And because it’s in a dropper—remember, one drop is the equivalent of about 0.5ml which means you’d need 20 drops to get 1ml—there’s more control over how much you’re taking, which is always good to know, even if it’s non-psychoactive.

Look, we could go on and on about the benefits of tinctures, but really, what we want to do is show you some of our top pick—all heavily vetted and hand-picked by Miss Grass. All you need to do is find the one you like the best, and go for it. Happy tincture-ing.

2Rise Naturals CBD Oil Tincture with Bioavailable Turmeric

Did you know that turmeric is bioavailable as hell? That means most of the nutrients are able to be absorbed into the bloodstream. Mixed with CBD, which is also at its most bioavailable when applied sublingually, and you’ve got a (great tasting) recipe for brain and central nervous system support. 2Rise Naturals’ tincture is also made from ethically grown hemp in Colorado.

Bloom Farms CBD Tincture in Relieve

And we’d be remiss in our Miss Grass duties if we didn’t mention one more Bloom Farms product before moving on. (They’re brand new to the site.) Also full-spectrum, this tincture is all about restfulness, and tending to what ails you. Thanks to the all-natural makeup of the product, it tastes just like the color green. Yum.

Mineral Robyn for Sleep

This calming Mineral creation is made of 1:1 cannabinoids and sleep-centered terpenes, which means it’ll gently assist in rocking you straight to bye-bye land. And can we talk about the packaging on this thing? It’s the Aesop of CBD tinctures. But the best thing is the need-based focus of their blends, trust.

Lord Jones High CBD Tincture in Peppermint

Peppermint oil—along with grape seed oil, hempseed oil, hemp oil, and stevia—is what gives this Lord Jones tincture its peppermint deliciousness. But it also comes in lemon flavor, if that’s more your vibe. Their tinctures retain the plant’s original terpenes and phytocannabinoids, but not the THC, making it a “broad spectrum” formula.

Lily CBD in 1500mg

This single-source CBD oil is like a fine wine—every bottle of the amber good stuff is one of a kind. Lily partners with farmers just 100 miles from New York to bottle it, and as you can probably tell from the name, this particular offering is all about strength—a little goes a long way. And when it comes to how you feel, mind and body, that means a lot.
