How Long are CBD Oil Tinctures Good For?

Everyone is talking about CBD oil tinctures.  CBD oil tinctures are a natural substance extracted from the hemp plant, and thanks to the 2014 Farm Bill, is federally legal. 

CBD contains 0.3% THC or less and is not psychoactive, like marijuana so you don’t get the “high”.

CBD tinctures, when ingested, work with your body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS).  The ECS is a complex biological system expressed through the central nervous system via neurotransmitters delivering messages throughout the body.  The ECS works to manage homeostasis throughout the body.

How much CBD oil Tincture Should I Buy At a Time?

The potency and amount of CBD tinctures you should purchase at a given time depends on a few things:

  1. The  intensity or severity of your health and wellness issue should define the milligram amount and concentration you desire from CBD tinctures
  2. The better the quality of the product, the less you should need with serving
  3. Don’t shop by price – you get what you pay for
  4. How many drops do you need for your desired outcome? A higher concentration may be more convenient if you require a higher milligram serving.
  5. How often during the day do you use it in your daily regimen? (using it on a daily basis will likely provide the best results)
  6. How long does it take for my CBD order to arrive?  It’s best not to run out, so ordering enough to have a back-up might be a good idea.
    1. Or consider a brand that offers a reliable subscription program that delivers a new bottle of CBD tinctures every 30 days.

Do CBD Tinctures Expire?

CBD tinctures should have a shelf life of approximately fourteen to twenty-four months.  Calculating how much you should have at the ready can help in defining how much you should have on hand. 

If you are using it as part of a daily regimen, it’s a good idea to look at the quality and potency to ensure you are purchasing a CBD tincture that doesn’t require more to achieve the desired result. 

Purchasing a high-quality product will ensure that you don’t need to increase the serving to satisfy the desired outcome.  Regardless, it may be a good idea to always have a back-up bottle so that if something happens to the bottle you are using, or you have a temporary need to increase the amount you are using, you don’t stress about replacing it.

We would not suggest you stock up on too much because with many CBD tinctures, they lose their potency after one to two years.  High Falls Hemp NY CBD tinctures last longer because we don’t incorporate artificial flavors which can cause the product to spoil faster.  So, when High Falls Hemp NY has a sale or a special, it is definitely worth stocking up!

How Long Does CBD Oil Tincture Last?

Assuming you are not using the CBD tincture frequently during your day, you can expect that the bottle of CBD tincture should last between eighteen to twenty-four months.  If you have a bottle that is older, that doesn’t mean you should throw it away.  CBD that is aged won’t usually turn rancid or make you ill, but it may lose its potency once it’s expired for a length of time.

Over time, just like with any liquid supplements or medications, they can begin to break down and parts may evaporate.  This can negatively impact the effectiveness of the product versus when it was new.

At High Falls Hemp, our product batches sell out in less than a year, with a two-year shelf life. In some circumstances, we produced more of a given batch than we were able to sell in a year, or up to the best by date posted on the bottle. When this happens, we perform shelf life laboratory testing to ensure that the CBD advertised on the label is at least what is in the bottle. And since we normally formulate our CBD products to have 10% more CBD than advertised, there is a little bit of cushion, should some of the CBD deteriorate.

Our shelf life studies have shown that 12 to 18 months after the date of manufacture, that our CBD tinctures typically experience a 0-2% decrease in potency, which is within the statistical range of being the same as when it was produced. We are very proud of this and would suggest that our products probably last for 4 years or more, but until we have 4 years of history behind us, we cannot make that claim.

We care about extending the shelf life of your CBD Tincture

If you purchase CBD tinctures from a reputable CBD company, they take shelf life very seriously.  They are likely putting in precautions that help to extend the shelf life of the product you purchase.  At High Falls Hemp NY, the CBD tinctures are packaged in dark brown bottles which reduces the exposure to sunlight and other ancillary lighting.

The method of extraction that the brand you purchase from matters as well.  The brands that use best in class extraction methods are investing more to provide you with a superior product, hence why you may be paying a little more for it.  But, if you are putting it in your body, I’m sure you want the best.  CO2 extraction, which is costly, is considered the “holy grail” for CBD manufacturing and it supports a longer shelf life.  High Falls Hemp NY also abides by this standard.

If you store your CBD properly, it will also help extend the shelf life.  Make every best effort to avoid placing the bottle in a place exposed to excessive light, heat, excessive air, and moisture.  After use, make sure the bottle is sealed tightly.  This might make it harder to open, but it will preserve the integrity of the product.

Storing the CBD tincture in a dark place is also helpful.  Many place the CBD tincture in a cool, dark place, perhaps a drawer or a cabinet for easy access.  Don’t remove the CBD tincture from its original bottle.  This is an airtight bottle, with a child-proof cap, that protects the integrity of the CBD oil, so it does not oxidize. 

If you are like many of our customers that don’t leave home without their High Falls Hemp NY CBD tinctures, we should caution you not to leave it in your car to avoid extreme heat temperature or sunlight directly on the vehicle that could damage the product.

It’s important to note that if you are considering cooking with CBD or leaving in a warm place, CBD’s evaporation point is near 350 degrees.  For those who are using in a recipe, be mindful not to heat over 350 degrees or the CBD will lose its potency.
