CBD Tincture – 250 mg in 30 ml
Each 30ml bottle contains 250 mg of full spectrum CBD oil with the natural cannabis terpenes linalool, a-Pinene and Caryophyllene oxide. Terpenes are the fragrant oils that give cannabis its smell and flavour. Terpenes have their own medical effects and work with CBD synergistically – known as the ‘entourage effect’. The base oil is MCT (medium chain triglycerides) oil and has many medical benefits on its own. The main benefits of MCT oil are :
- Appetite reduction and weight loss
- Improved cognitive and neurological function with possible implications in neurodegerative diseases
- Increased energy levels and improved athletic performance
- Improved mitochondrial function and subsequent reduced risk for diseases such as atherosclerosis, diabetes, cancer, cardiovascular disease, autoimmune diseases and epilepsy
- As part of a specialized dietary therapy for the treatment of epilepsy
- Prevention of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD)

This ‘entry level’ tincture is useful for people wanting to use CBD as a general health supplement. Indications are that a dosage of 2.5-15mg CBD by mouth daily can provide a general health benefit. For some people chronic pain can be addressed by as little as 2.5 to 20 mg a day. Sleep disorders usually require more (40-160 mg a day) so a more potent tincture would be more cost effective. Start with a small dose and work your way up to your desired dose.
For best results take sublingually under the tongue. One full dropper will dispense ~8.3 mg of CBD in 1 ml. DO NOT VAPORIZE THIS TINCTURE. It is meant to be taken orally and vaporizing MCT oil is not good for you.

Sample submitted: “CBD Tincture in MCT oil – 250 mg”
Notes: This tincture is labelled 250 mg CBD/ 30 ml bottle. Analysis indicates 8.5 mg/ml CBD. Each 30 ml bottle contains approximately 255 mg CBD. (This calculation includes conversion from mg/g to mg/ml by multiplying the results by the density of MCT oil (0.95 g/ml). i.e 268 mg/g x 0.95g/ml = 255 mg/ml.)
Activated vs non-activated: activated cannabinoids are non-acidic (neutral) and are the form utilized by the human brain/ body. Activation occurs via heating (smoking, vaporizing, cooking). Cannabinoids in the natural plant are acidic (non-activated) and need to be converted to their neutral form in order to be utilized by the human body. Therefore one would expect fresh cannabis buds to contain mainly non-activated cannabinoids. Processed materials (baked goods, heated extracts) should be higher in the activated forms.
Absent Cannabinoids: if a cannabinoid or terpene is blank, it is not necessarily absent but below the limit of detection by the detector (usually less than 0.01%).
