“At the end of the day [CBD] is a fairly safe compound,” Hill says. “Although, we still need to know a lot more about it, like how it interacts with other medications people may be taking and what are the long-term effects,” he adds. And perhaps his biggest concern: “Sometimes people want to use it instead of evidence-based treatment and that can be a problem clinically in certain situations.”
CBD tinctures are generally made from high CBD strains of hemp, with 60 to 70 percent alcohol, and are primarily used to help relieve anxiety or ease pain. “Tinctures are convenient, have a long shelf life, and are absorbed easily when taken under the tongue. The dose can be adjusted by increasing or decreasing the number of drops taken,” notes Low Dog.
The cannabis plant has hundreds of chemicals in it, including more than 120 cannabinoids, Hill explains. Of those cannabinoids, two are most familiar: THC, which produces the euphoric effects or “high” people experience from marijuana, and cannabidiol or CBD, which has some anti-inflammatory, anti-seizure, anxiety-relieving and analgesic properties, according to Low Dog.
So are there side effects?
Despite its relatively recent place in our collective consciousness, CBD has been at work delivering its calming agents as far back as the ‘80s by some estimates and the ancient world by others. With it, an almost endless menu of formulations has emerged—from capsules and oils to lotions and seltzer—each promising an even more effective dose of CBD than the last.
Here, Tieraona Low Dog, M.D., an expert on herbal medicine and women’s health, and Kevin Hill, M.D., Director of the Division of Addiction Psychiatry at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and an Assistant Professor of Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School, get to the bottom of CBD tinctures’ mystique.
“Sometimes, you will find extracts called tinctures that use glycerin, vinegar, or oil as the solvent, instead of alcohol,” Low Dog says. “These offer the advantage of being alcohol-free, but may not always offer the same potency as an alcohol-water extract.”
According to Low Dog, a tincture may offer a broader range of compounds from hemp than an oil extraction. “Consumers who are alcohol-sensitive often prefer hemp oil over tincture. While both can be used topically, hemp oil is generally easier to apply and less irritating,” she says.
Nu-X CBD is one of those CBD brands that takes everything to the next level. While many CBD companies know how to do gummies and tinctures well, Nu-X seems to have perfected it all. From high-quality vape pens to shots of CBD and even hemp prerolls, no matter how you want to enjoy your CBD, you can with Nu-X.
This type of versatility is great for CBD lovers of all types, both new and old. If you are a new CBD consumer, I’d highly suggest turning to their 250mg tinctures: these products not only have a great potent starting dose, but they taste incredible, too. Any of Nu-X’s CBD products around 200-500mg will likely prove a wonderful place to start for all you newbies.
Immediately, I was impressed by both the product range and the affordability of everything they offered. They’re one of the most affordable CBD brands I’ve come across in a long, long time – $7.99 for a CBD tincture?! These unheard of low prices had me a bit skeptical, but their COAs only proved quality.
Unfortunately, not all of their products can be shipped throughout the US, and the flavors can be a bit strong. All in all though, this CBD brand is both genuinely effective and genuinely impressive.
