Guide to Hemp Oil Tinctures, Capsules, and Topicals

These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease. Consult your healthcare provider before use.

Whole-Plant Hemp Oil is remarkably versatile. The plant’s cannabinoid-rich extracts provide considerable health and wellness benefits. However, with the diversity of products on the market, you may wonder which product type best aligns with your needs and preferences.

Although tinctures are quite popular with many first-time Hemp Oil users, there are many reasons you may prefer going in another direction. Knowing how tinctures, capsules, and topicals work can help you determine which Synchronicity™ product is right for you.

Appreciating the Synchronicity™ Whole-Plant, Full- Spectrum Difference for Tinctures, Capsules, and Topicals

The quality of the products you select will considerably impact your overall experience. We ensure the integrity of our tinctures, capsules, and topicals by cultivating non-GMO hemp. We also use no insecticides or herbicides. Once our hemp crops mature, we harvest nutrient-rich oils from their stalks, stems, and flowers.

While most companies tout the importance of natural hemp cultivation, many drop the ball by relying on chemical solvents and extreme temperatures to extract the cannabinoid-rich oil from harvested plants. Harsh extraction methods can strip the delicate hemp plant of its vital oils and phytonutrients.

Synchronicity™  products are never compromised by heat or harsh chemicals. With more than two decades dedicated to cultivating proprietary hemp plants, we understand how each plant element enhances product potency. Our commitment to quality demands attention to details other companies overlook.

Rather than relying on harsh extraction methods, our unique LipidTrans Infusion™ process preserves and transfers the plant’s many phytocannabinoids, flavonoids, and terpenes to a heart-healthy oil (MCT oil). We process our popular Full-Spectrum Hemp Oil in small hand-pressed batches. This distinction sets us apart from the competition.

Selecting the Ideal Synchronicity™ Hemp Oil Tinctures, Capsules, and Topicals for Your Needs

Functional Remedies™ is a vertically integrated company. This means that we have full control over every aspect of production, from seed selection to product distribution. Our proprietary infusion process allows us to create top quality Full-Spectrum Hemp Oil tinctures, topicals, and capsules. While the best way to know how a Hemp Oil product may affect you is to try it, the following considerations may help you decide which Hemp Oil product best suits your unique interests.

When to Select a Full-Spectrum, Whole-Plant Hemp Oil Tincture

Synchronicity™ Full-Spectrum Hemp Oil Tincture is not a simple CBD oil. It’s far superior. Unlike the manufacturing practices utilized by other companies, our sustainable processes deliver supreme value.

Selecting one of our Hemp Oil tinctures may be your best option if you’re intrigued by one or more of the following examples of product versatility:

Determining Your Ideal Serving Size

Everyone responds to the cannabinoids in Full-Spectrum Hemp Oil differently. It’s perfectly fine to stick with the serving size recommendations on product labels. However, the ideal amount for you may differ from that of your neighbor.

Using a Hemp Oil tincture makes it easy to start with a smaller serving size. A few hours after using a Hemp Oil tincture for the first time, Ask Your Body™ if that amount needs calibrating. Using a Hemp Oil tincture makes it easy to increase your serving size gradually.

Crafting Your Own Cannabinoid-Infused Edibles

Creative types often enjoy cooking and baking with Hemp Oil tinctures. Use your tincture to add the health and wellness potential of CBD, CBN, CBG, and essential fatty acids to your morning coffee, breakfast smoothie, or hot cereal.

The convenient dropper cap makes it easy to know how many milligrams of plant phytonutrients you’re adding to each recipe. Plus, when you make your own cannabinoid-infused edibles, you’ll have peace of mind knowing that you’re using a high-quality Hemp Oil. Hemp Oil tinctures can also be added to your favorite shampoo or conditioner to nurture and protect your hair and scalp.

Utilizing a Faster Cannabinoid Delivery Option

When you add Hemp Oil to your favorite snack or beverage, it can take up to two hours to notice the full effects. For faster results, Hemp Oil tinctures can also be used sublingually. Simply place the oil under your tongue and hold for 15-20 seconds before swallowing.

The sublingual method allows the blood vessels under your tongue to absorb the cannabinoids. Not only does the sublingual method preserve product potency, but it also delivers noticeable results in as little as 15-20 minutes.

The Advantages of Selecting Full-Spectrum Hemp Oil Capsules

Synchronicity™ Full-Spectrum Capsules Contain the same high-quality Whole-Plant infusions as our popular Hemp Oil tinctures. The concentrated oil is encased in an easy-to-swallow gelatin shell. Available in concentrations of 25mg or 50mg of hemp phytonutrients per serving, Full-Spectrum Hemp Oil Capsules are great if you’re intrigued by any of the following advantages:

  • Consistent, Pre-measured Daily Dosing

    Although Hemp Oil Tinctures are exceptionally versatile, many people prefer to use a pre-measured Hemp Oil product. Ideal for busy people who value convenience, Full-Spectrum capsules make it easy to add the health and wellness potential of Whole-Plant Hemp Oil to your daily routine. Since each gelatin capsule contains a consistent amount of phytonutrients, you’ll never have to worry about shaking bottles, measuring milliliters, or counting drops.

  • A Discrete, Portable Product Option

    Capsules may be the ideal option if you travel frequently. They’re also great if you plan on carrying your Hemp Oil with you throughout the day. With capsules, there’s no risk of bottle breakage or spillage. Since capsules are taken like any other over-the-counter pill or vitamin supplement, you won’t have to field questions from curious onlookers. This makes Hemp Oil capsules one of the most discreet product options available.

  • Avoiding the Flavor of Full-Spectrum Oils

    Many Hemp Oil users appreciate the therapeutic potential of Full-Spectrum products but don’t necessarily care for the way natural (or flavored) Hemp Oil tastes. If you’re worried about how the “earthy” or “grassy” flavor of industrial hemp may affect your overall experience, Hemp Oil capsules may be your best option. The gelatin capsule begins to dissolve within minutes of swallowing. So, you’ll notice the potential impact almost immediately.

Reasons to Consider a Full-Spectrum Hemp Oil Topical

Using a Hemp Oil infused cream, lotion, or sports balm topically allows the CBD, additional cannabinoids, and wholesome plant nutrients to target specific areas below the surface of your skin. That level of absorption delivers a wide range of potential health and wellness benefits. Consider using a topical for the following concerns or to complement the therapeutic potential of tinctures or capsules:

  • Targeting Specific Joints and Muscles

    Hemp Oil products are popular with those looking for a safe, natural alternative for overworked joints. Hemp also reduces muscle tension and supports athletic recovery. Not thrilled with the prospect of ingesting Hemp Oil? If so, Hemp Oil tinctures can also be applied topically.

    Best of all, products specifically formulated for joints and muscles tend to also contain powerfully effective botanicals. Since applying Hemp Oil topically bypasses digestive processes, most people using Hemp Oil topicals find they work much faster than capsules.

  • Supporting Healthy Skin Function

    Full-Spectrum Hemp Oil delivers an impressive combination of active cannabinoids and plant terpenes to tissues below the skin’s surface. Current research suggests that phytocannabinoids contain skin-friendly nutrients. They restore balance to processes essential for skin health.

    Hemp Oil skincare products may be your best option if your current skincare routine isn’t delivering the results you want. If you’re looking for a natural product for a wide range of skin concerns, hemp is your best bet.

  • Resolving Concerns About THC Content

    Full-Spectrum Hemp Oil contains trace amounts of THC (0.3 percent or less). Moderate consumption of Full-Spectrum Hemp Oil is unlikely to sound alarms during a routine drug test. However, many people don’t feel comfortable ingesting THC in any amount.

    Using a Full-Spectrum topical eliminates the risk of THC detection. With topical use, the cannabinoids don’t enter the bloodstream. That makes topical products the best Full-Spectrum option for anyone concerned about the potential implications of THC consumption.

How Full-Spectrum Hemp Oil Tinctures and Capsules Work

If you’ve been investigating the virtues of Hemp Oil, you’ve likely concluded that people use tinctures, capsules, and topicals for a wide range of seemingly unrelated concerns. They look to hemp to achieve positive results in physical and emotional wellbeing.

The interaction of hemp phytocannabinoids with ECS receptors produces those results. The ECS (also known as the endocannabinoid system) is the largest regulatory system in the body.

This essential messaging system helps regulate nearly every crucial function in the body, from your emotions to organ function and muscle movement. Current research suggests that the CBD (cannabidiol), CBG (cannabigerol), CBN (cannabinol), and other phytocannabinoids mimic the effects of important ECS messengers. In the body, these messengers relay urgent signals to their corresponding receptors.

Since internal and external factors can increase the need for these messengers, supporting ECS function with cannabinoid-rich Hemp Oil helps restore essential balance. Although research shows that CBD and other cannabinoids in Hemp Oil provide anxiolytic, analgesic, antispasmodic, and neuroprotective potential, individual effects differ.

How Full-Spectrum Topical Creams, Lotions, Serums, and Balms Work

Topical Hemp Oil products work similarly. However, rather than targeting ECS receptors throughout the body and brain, the cannabinoids interact with ECS receptors in every skin cell. This includes receptors that help regulate skin cell formation, inflammatory responses, collagen production, and moisture retention.

Based on laboratory test results, animal-based studies, and user testimonials, phytocannabinoids have the ability to restore balance to essential skin functions. They can address a wide range of chronic skin conditions and even reduce the visible signs of premature aging.

As the cannabinoids penetrate the surface of the skin, they also interact with receptors in the subdermal layers. This likely explains why so many Hemp Oil users report favorable results using topical products for joint and muscle support.

Tinctures capsules and oils

Experience a Potent True Entourage Effect™ With Synchronicity™ Hemp Oil Tinctures, Capsules, and Topicals

Whether you decide to support ECS function with Hemp Oil tinctures, capsules, or topicals, there’s something you should know. Many companies offer hemp-derived products with just one ingredient. That ingredient is CBD isolate, a white crystalline powder comprised of a single cannabinoid.

Although current research shows that CBD has the potential to deliver a wide range of benefits on its own, pure isolate powders have a major disadvantage. They don’t contain many of the plant elements known to contribute to a full Entourage Effect. Most hemp enthusiasts consider products made with Full-Spectrum Hemp Oil far more potent.

The Entourage Effect is a theory that explains how all the elements in hemp work together to magnify the therapeutic potential of the plant. You’ve likely encountered companies claiming that their Full-Spectrum products deliver all the cannabinoids in the same ratios as the original plant source.

However, any company using harsh extraction methods is likely selling “Full-Spectrum” products incapable of delivering a True Entourage Effect™.
