When you bought your first CBD tincture, you may have heard of something called the Sublingual Method. With all the information (and big words) surrounding hemp products, this can seem like just another one of the technical jargon that is thrown around. On the contrary, the sublingual method is actually an important part of using a tincture.
What is the Sublingual Method?
The sublingual method is much simpler than it sounds. This method is used by not only the hemp industry, but also industries like dentistry. According to information from Applications of Nanovesicular Drug Delivery (2022 version), the sublingual method was observed in dentistry patients using oral sedation drugs. Researchers found this method helped to provide adequate relief to patients with less sedation than other drugs.
While this sounds impressive, how does it work?
Beneath the tongue are two small ducts called the sublingual glands. These glands are the smallest of the three major glands in our mouths and only contribute roughly 4% of overall saliva. According to Teach Me Anatomy, “The sublingual glands are almond-shaped and lie on the floor of the oral cavity. They are situated underneath the tongue, bordered laterally by the mandible and medially by [the] genioglossus muscle of the tongue.”
Since these glands are in an ideal place and produce a much smaller quantity of saliva, they are ideal for allowing things to be absorbed more readily into the bloodstream. Dentistry is not the only industry by far that has taken advantage of the sublingual gland’s ability for absorption. Other industries, like the hemp industry, have figured out how to use this method to make their products more efficient.
So how does this apply to CBD tinctures?
Why is the Sublingual Method Important
When it Comes to CBD Tinctures?
Now that we have an understanding of how the sublingual method works, we can apply this knowledge and use it to get the most out of our CBD tinctures.
When you consume CBD tinctures, the most common way is to directly apply the tincture from the dropper into your mouth. However, by placing the tincture under your tongue rather than on top of it, it allows the sublingual glands to absorb the CBD. Similar to drugs used in the dentistry field, the CBD from the tincture is absorbed into the bloodstream more efficiently.
This is a great method for those who find they need a larger serving size to get the desired results they want out of their tincture. The more efficient the absorption, the less is needed to reach that goal. So not only is the sublingual method more efficient but also gives you more bang for your buck.
