There are many different ways to consume CBD products these days. From hand lotion to chocolate candys, to bath bombs, capsules, drinks, isolate concentrate, and more, there are more options than ever. One of the most popular ways to consume it, however, remains to be CBD tincture products.
What Are CBD Oil Tinctures?
CBD oil tinctures are one of the most effective and easiest ways to get cannabidiol into your bloodstream and experience its positive results. They are also one of the oldest and most tried and tested methods for consuming it. But what exactly are they?
Put simply, tinctures are a combination of CBD extract and a carrier oil. They can also include other compounds like terpenes or flavonoids. Oftentimes, different essential oils are added as well for an added or unique flavor. At Urban Roots Hemp Co., our tinctures combine a high quality CBD extract with MCT oil (coconut oil).
Why Is There MCT Oil in My CBD Oil Tincture?
As we mentioned, our Urban Roots CBD oil tinctures include coconut oil (MCT oil). The reason for this is that the MCT oil helps the CBD penetrate the bloodstream more easily when the tincture is consumed through the digestive system. Basically, the MCT oil carries the CBD extract right to your blood, increasing its bioavailability.
In other words, it allows the CBD to pass through your digestive system in greater concentrations than it otherwise would. The result is that you reap more benefits from the CBD that passes through your digestive system. And who doesn’t want more bang for their buck!
Potential Positive Effects of MCT Oil
Not only does MCT oil help CBD penetrate your blood and, as a result, your endocannabinoid system, it also has some potential health benefits of its own. Some positive health effects of MCT oil may include:
- Promoting weight loss
- A good source of energy
- Reduced lactate buildup in muscles
- Managing Alzheimer’s
- Contains fatty acids that fight yeast and bacterial growth
- Reduce the risk of heart disease
- May help manage blood sugar levels
The combination of CBD and MCT oil in a tincture dropper is a match made in heaven for your body’s health and wellness needs!
Benefits of Sublingual CBD Consumption
CBD oil tinctures can be consumed sublingually, meaning under your tongue. This mode of consumption is extremely beneficial, because the CBD can avoid your digestive system all together. Why is this important? Because things take a long time to pass through your digestive system, and by the time they pass through your stomach, liver, and other organs, they can lose some of their original potency.
In a metabolic process called “first-pass,” CBD is broken down into hundreds of constituent components called metabolites, many of which go to waste and don’t get used by our bodies. When this process essentially eliminates some of the CBD taken, that means the CBD’s bioavailability has been reduced.
This is actually where the MCT oil is extremely helpful. Like we mentioned, the coconut oil essentially protects the CBD oil, allowing more of it to get through.
Consuming CBD sublingually, however, allows you to avoid the digestive system completely. There are a large number of capillaries beneath your tongue that connect to the sublingual and submental arteries, which are branches of the lingual and facial arteries, respectively.
By placing the CBD oil directly beneath your tongue, it comes into contact with and is absorbed by your mucous membrane. From their it enters the capillaries and then is swept into the larger arteries. After that, it is in your body’s highway system and can reach the CB1 and CB2 receptors that are found throughout your endocannabinoid system.

We carry a wide variety of CBD oil tincture products that are suited to different health issues, needs, and tastes. All of them allow for a faster onset of effects than other consumption measures, which is ideal to see what dose is right for you and your body.
Many tinctures are made through a process that involves absorbing the cannabinoids or other plant medicines into high proof alcohol and then straining out the plant material. At Urban Roots Hemp Co., however, our tinctures are just CBD and MCT oil. They do not contain any alcohol.

Choose Local, High Quality CBD Tincture Products
When deciding which type of CBD to purchase, it’s important to choose products from reputable brands that use only the highest quality ingredients.
