WOW Guide To The Top 5 CBD Tinctures by Brand
There are multiple ways to consume CBD. Because our bodies absorb and process CBD in different ways, it’s mostly a matter of personal preference.
Tinctures, however, are one of the most efficient ways to take CBD. The effects are generally felt in as little as 10 minutes to an hour. It all depends on the person and dosage.
CBD Tinctures come with measured droppers and thus allow for a very consistent dose. To use a tincture, you simply squeeze the desired amount under your tongue. For optimal absorption, try to hold the liquid under your tongue for at least 30 seconds.
What To Look For When Choosing a CBD Tincture:
A 2017 study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association found that only 30 percent of commercially available CBD products were accurately labeled.
Therefore, it’s important to know what to look for when you’re shopping for the highest quality CBD.
Some of the things we look for when choosing CBD are:
- Lab reports: make sure the company you’re purchasing from makes current lab reports available to you on their website.
- Organic Hemp: Cannabis is a bio-accumulator and is affected by soil contaminants and heavy metals.
- Broad-Spectrum or Full-Spectrum Formula: meaning the extract contains a range of different phytocannabinoids.
WOW Factor: One of the few CBD companies to own their own hemp farm, FOCL is setting a new standard for the industry with their farm to tincture process. In addition to their organic USA-grown hemp, their formula contains organic MCT oil extracted from baby coconuts.

About FOCL CBD Tincture
With their own hemp farm in New Mexico Valley, FOCL is setting a new standard for the CBD industry with their farm to tincture process. One of the few CBD brands to actually own and harvest their own cannabis, FOCL also works with other US based growers to ensure only the highest-quality product goes into their CBD Drops. In addition to organic, broad-spectrum, USA grown hemp, their formula contains organic MCT oil – extracted from baby coconuts.
Made in three delightful flavors: orange cream, mint, and cherry, FOCL CBD Drops have 300 mg of CBD per bottle: which comes out to 30 servings per bottle (with each serving being 10mg of CBD). These drops taste amazing and the transparency of the brand (and the bottles) gives us peace of mind that we are only putting the best ingredients into our bodies.
WOW Factor: While it’s a given that every company on our list uses a C02 extraction process for their hemp-derived CBD, Tarot takes it up a notch by using C02 extraction methods on every herb that goes into their formula – including: blood orange, turmeric, valerian root, elderberry and damiana.

About Tarot CBD Tincture
With a focus on full-spectrum formulas, Tarot CBD tinctures combine CBD with C02 extracted herbs to deliver whole plant power with every dose. Their hemp-derived CBD is grown in the U.S. and extracted using only the C02 extraction process. With five different formulas to choose from, Tarot offers customers focused plant blends to enhance everything from sleep, to synergy, to sex.
Their most no-nonsense approach is a CBD & MCT Oil blend that comes in 500mg & 1000mg options. While perhaps their most unique approach is the Damiana Lemon and CBD Oil Blend – which promotes aphrodisiac effects.
Our pick is Tarot’s Tumeric Blood Orange & CBD Oil Blend -which enhances the anti-inflammatory powers of CBD with organic turmeric root and the immune boosting powers of blood orange.
WOW Factor: Tribe derives their CBD from pesticide-free hemp grown in Colorado and Oregon. Bonus: Tribe’s citrus formula tastes like Fruit Loops.
- Broad-Spectrum CBD Oil
- Fruity Taste
- Wellness Vibes
About Tribe CBD Tincture
One of the most affordable options on our list, Tribe CBD derives their CBD from hemp grown pesticide-free in Colorado and Oregon. Their CBD oil is Broad Spectrum, so their formula delivers an entourage of cannabinoids: CBD, CBG, CBN, and CBC. These compounds work together to produce a more powerful effect than any one of those components could produce alone (I.e. as an isolate).
We also love that you can check out their lab report for exact quantities of each cannabidiol compound, right on their website. Their citrus flavored tincture has a light fruity taste thanks to the blend of broad-spectrum hemp CBD oil, cold-pressed orange oil, coconut oil, and hempseed oil.
WOW Factor: This brand puts quality of product and process above all else with the use of regenerative agriculture techniques to grow their own hemp. Mineral’s tinctures deliver a formula rich in CBD, terpenes, omega fatty acids, vitamins, and flavonoids.
- Full-Spectrum CBD Oil
- Sustainably Grown Hemp
- Sophisticated Vibe
About MINERAL Health Tincture
With a focus on whole plant medicine, Mineral’s formulations let nature take the lead. Each one of their formulas rely on an organic expression of both cannabinoids and terpenes extracted from their own plants, grown in Colorado, using a supercritical CO2 method. This extraction method results in crude hemp oil – rich in CBD, terpenes, omega fatty acids, vitamins, and flavonoids. The Mineral team then reintroduces complementary cannabinoids: CBG, CBC, and CBN, to their formula to deliver whole plant benefits.
One our favorite things about the Mineral production process is that they practice Regenerative Agriculture to grow their hemp. Regenerative Agriculture is the most sustainable way to grow crops and helps to reverse the global trend of carbon accumulation in the atmosphere (I.e. it helps to cool down the planet by capturing carbon from the atmosphere). This method of agriculture also results in a more nutrient dense plant – meaning you’re getting higher quality plant compounds.
The quality of the product is reflected in Mineral’s high-end packaging, which resemble high-end beauty products. And if you think about it, since CBD makes you more focused, less stressed, and improves your sleep and mood – it’s pretty much the ultimate beauty elixir.
WOW Factor: Whispr’s minimalistic tinctures have an uber luxurious vibe that have elevated our wellness routines (and our shelfies) for the better. We love that the Whispr formula incorporates a full-spectrum hemp oil that tastes citrusy and minty fresh.
- Full-Spectrum CBD Oil
- Colorado-grown Hemp
- Minimalist Vibe
About Whispr CBD Tincture
One of our favorite tinctures is the Full Spectrum Hemp Oil by Whispr CBD. It tastes light, fresh, and fruity thanks to high quality plant oils (Grape, Avocado, and Hemp) and subtle flavor notes of tangerine and mint. Made using hemp CBD grown in Colorado, the Whispr formula also features MCT oil, a well-known nootropic that promotes optimal mind and body function.
A big bonus for the aesthetic-obsessives (like us) is their ultra chic packaging. The clean white bottles have a minimalist feel and square shape that turns daily routine into sophisticated ritual.
