Tinctures in Food

Tinctures in Food

After settling on trying CBD tinctures, the next hurdle is finding ways to incorporate the tincture into your daily routine. Some people like to simply put a couple of drops under their tongue and carry on with their day. Other people like to incorporate it into their meals and get creative with their dosage. Incorporating CBD tinctures into meals is as easy as it gets. It can improve the CBD’s bioavailability (the degree and rate the CBD is absorbed and delivered to the bloodstream where it interacts with the native system) and positively affect the absorption rate. 

The best foods to incorporate CBD tinctures into contain fatty acids. Because fatty acids serve as a potent binding agent for the cannabinoids and are directly metabolized into energy in the liver, meaning the loss of CBD when it goes through the first metabolism pass is limited. Some food that serves as an excellent delivery system includes fish and other types of meat, avocado, eggs, and cooking oils such as coconut, sesame, and olive oil. 

Throwing some CBD into a morning smoothie is also a great way to start your day and incorporate your dosage. Asterra’s Full Spectrum CBD Tincture contains the highest quality ingredients and meets and exceeds the guidelines established by United States Pharmacopeia. When you take any product orally, its active ingredients are absorbed through the digestive system; the CBD, in this case, is broken down first in the stomach before being absorbed by the small intestine and then sent through the portal vein into your liver. In the liver, having CBD in foods rich with fatty acids will come in handy and becomes beneficial to the CBD’s absorption rate. 

The most important thing to look for when you are looking for CBD products is to look for lab testing. The best brands always offer CoA’s (Certificates of Analysis) to show that their products have been put through certified and independent testing and are safe for you and your needs. Asterra labs offer Certificates of Analysis for all of their products, so you know you are getting the best of the best. For your convenience, we have placed QR codes on the product’s packaging that lead to their specific CoA, or you can view all our products’ CoA’s on our website here.
