CBD products are flooding the market right now. In some states, like Connecticut where I live, you can even purchase them at your corner gas station. The extensive choice in CBD products is overwhelming when trying to chose a product that is best for your needs. Here is our list of the best CBD tinctures and CBD oils that are made in the USA.
Before you make that CBD purchase though, do you really know what you are buying? Your health is not something you want to mess with, so make sure you know what you are ingesting or putting on your body! You might be seeing products labeled ‘CBD Tincture' and ‘CBD Oil'. To make things even more confusing you might even see ‘CBD Oil Tincture' on labels. I explain the difference below.

What is the difference between CBD Tincture and CBD Oil?
If you have been looking to purchase CBD oil, you might being seeing products labeled ‘CBD Tincture', ‘CBD Oil', and even ‘CBD Oil Tincture'. These descriptions on the label can make your purchasing decision confusing. The products look the same- both are in bottles with droppers- and both are commonly taken as drops under the tongue. Is there a difference? Yes.
The difference is in how the CBD product is made:
- CBD tinctures are made by soaking CBD rich hemp flowers in high proof grain alcohol, vinegar, or glycerine. Alcohol makes the highest potency tinctures, so it is more commonly used. This method is time consuming, as the soaking time can be weeks or even months. I have noticed some CBD brands use ‘tincture' on their label, when the product is in reality an oil. Read the ingredients. A tincture will have alcohol, vinegar or glycerine listed.
- CBD oils are made by infusing CBD isolates in a carrier oil. Common carrier oils are MCT oil, hemp seed oil, and olive oil. There is no alcohol in CBD oils. The carrier oil you would choose would depend on if you are looking for specific health benefits. Hemps seed oil and MCT oil have their own unique benefits. CBD oils are available in capsule form too.
- CBD oil tinctures are usually CBD oils as they only contain oil and not alcohol. Read the ingredients to make sure.
