Mixing CBD Oil Tinctures – Should You Do It?

Mixing CBD Oil Tinctures – Should You Do It?

Posted by David Nadel on 21st Dec 2019

CBD tinctures are becoming extremely popular as they allow users to enjoy a controlled dose of hemp that can kick in quickly and last for several hours. As you know, the tincture market is expansive, with so many companies offering their own unique version of this innovative formula.

One thing that a lot of tincture users wonder is whether or not they can mix two different tinctures together. Well, today, we’ll be talking about what happens when you combine two oral tinctures together, based on the unique formulas inside each bottle.

What is a Tincture, Anyway?

A CBD oil tincture, also known as a CBD oral tincture, is a bottled CBD oil product that is absorbed sublingually. This means that rather than being ingested, it’s held beneath the tongue for about one minute. This way, the hemp compounds absorb through the sublingual tissue, which allows them to reach the bloodstream more quickly than they would if they were ingested. CBD tinctures can be flavored or unflavored, and come in a wide range of milligram strengths.

Things to Consider Before Mixing Tinctures

So, can you mix two tinctures together? Technically, yes. Nothing bad will happen, like the CBD suddenly becoming ineffective, or becoming dangerous to consume. However, depending on the tinctures that you combine, you may end up with different experiences than what you’re going for.

See, CBD tinctures can vary from product to product depending on a number of factors, such as the strength and flavor. So, combining two tinctures together can result in a different experience than what you’re used to, as you’ll see.

The Strain

The strain is the unique composition of terpenes found in a particular hemp plant. Different strains can produce different effects based on the terpenes that are present. So, if you’re used to one type of strain that comes in the form of a tincture, and you blend it with a totally different strain, the effects that you experience may be a bit different.

The Flavor

Mixing two tincture flavors together can be wonderful, or very disappointing. Make sure that the two flavors you plan on mixing together complement each other.

The Strength

Mixing two different milligram strengths together will give you a new concentration of CBD per dose. For instance, if you’re mixing a 500mg tincture with a 1500mg tincture, you’ll end up with a 1000mg tincture, assuming you’re mixing together equal parts.

The Quality

Of course, you never want to mix a high-quality tincture with a low-quality tincture. Doing this will only provide you with a mediocre result in terms of quality. Low-quality tinctures should be discarded as they won’t give you the results that you desire, and may contain questionable ingredients.

Type of Extract

There are three types of extracts when it comes to hemp: full spectrum, broad spectrum and CBD isolate. Full spectrum contains every hemp compound including THC. Broad spectrum contains every hemp compound except THC. And, CBD isolate contains only CBD.

Many users are particular about the type of hemp extract they use. If this is the case for you, make sure that both tinctures contain the same type of extract.

Mixing it Up, CBD Style!

As you can see, you can definitely mix together two types of CBD tinctures in the sense that you won’t experience disastrous results or completely ruin the compounds in hemp. However, there are a few factors to consider before blending tinctures, especially if you’re very particular about the strain, flavor, strength, quality or type of extract.
