3 Benefits of Combining Vegetable Glycerin and CBD Honey Tincture

For a long time, skin care products were seen as a preserve of the rich and celebrities who had to look good because cameras are shoved in their faces almost every minute they are out doing random activities.

A paradigm shift in the industry then occurred, and companies that produce skin care products started concentrating more on the common people. Many of these products, however, contain chemicals that may not always agree with your skin.

Vegetable glycerin, popularly known as glycerin or glycerol, is a standard skin care product. Unlike other skin care products, glycerin is non-toxic and will thus not affect your skin in any way.

The uses of glycerin are not only restricted to the cosmetics industry; it can also be used in the food and pharmaceutical industry. For instance, it can also be combined with cannabidiol (CBD) oil and other substances to produce CBD oil tincture. 

What is Vegetable Glycerin?

Glycerin is a clear, odorless, sugary, and syrupy liquid that is drawn from plants. It exists in the form of triglycerides in these plants.

The triglyceride undergoes a process called hydrolysis to produce glycerol and fatty acids. It is this glycerol that is then used in several industrial processes.

Soy, coconut oil, and palm oil are some of the natural sources of glycerol.

It is important to note that there is animal glycerin. Just like plants, animals have triglyceride in their bloodstream and fatty tissue.

The difference between vegetable glycerin and animal glycerin is that the latter produces unsaturated fatty acids that can lead to an increase in the amount of cholesterol in the body. The former produces harmless saturated fatty acids.

Animal glycerin comes in bottles labeled ‘glycerin’ while vegetable glycerin is labeled ‘vegetable glycerin’.  It is vital to check for this crucial difference when you are purchasing glycerin.

CBD Oil Tincture

CBD products are fast being accepted into many mainstream industries because many of the benefits claimed can now be scientifically proven.

The potential of CBD products is so great that the government decided to remove the restrictions on hemp. Farmers in the United States can now grow hemp, from which CBD is extracted, like any other agricultural product.

CBD oil is by far the most popular CBD product. It has, however, experienced challenges trying to break into specific demographics due to its taste. This is the reason that led to the creation of CBD oil tinctures.

For example, a tincture comprising of CBD oil, vegetable glycerin, alcohol, and flavors/sweeteners, is common nowadays. The flavors and sweeteners are used to mask the unpleasant taste of CBD oil. Flavors such as mint, strawberry, vanilla, and chocolate are commonly used.

Natural sweeteners such as honey can also be used. When honey is infused into the mixture, the resultant mixture is called CBD honey tincture. Now, if you really want to really reap the maximum benefits of CBD honey, combine it with vegetable glycerin. 

Healthy benefits of combining glycerol and CBD honey tincture

1.    Alleviates Chronic Pain

All animals have an endocannabinoid system (ECS) that is responsible for maintaining homeostasis (balance) in the body. Homeostasis is the tendency to maintain a constant stable internal environment.

To maintain homeostasis in the body, the ECS controls your mood, sleep, pain and other factors which can cause a lack of a stable internal environment.

The ECS is composed of cannabinoids that are naturally produced in the body and a network of receptors which work together to ensure that the body maintains homeostasis. These cannabinoids ensure that the ECS performs its tasks flawlessly.

A situation in which there are not enough cannabinoids means that the body will be affected negatively. This can be remedied by introducing cannabinoids externally.

A mixture of glycerol and CBD honey tincture is an excellent source of cannabinoids that can be introduced to the body to ensure that the ECS functions well.

2.    Preventing Acne

Acne vulgaris, commonly referred to as acne, is a skin condition that results from oil and dead skin cells plugging the hair follicles. Pimples and bumps on the skin are the manifestations of acne.

Although it affects people of all ages, it is prevalent among teenagers. The American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) says that it is the most common skin condition in the United States, and it affects up to 50 million Americans annually.

They also state that the cost of treating acne has exceeded the 1 billion mark every year since 2013.

A combination of glycerin and CBD honey tincture can help you avoid acne and in turn, save you a lot of costs.

The glycerin in has specific properties that will prevent acne-causing bacteria from taking root in your skin.

Also, the CBD oil in the tincture has anti-inflammatory attributes that will prevent pimples and bumps from forming on the skin.

Honey, on the other hand, can kill bacteria and has anti-inflammatory qualities.

3.    Helps with Anxiety and Depression

The World Health Organization (WHO) states that depression is one of the biggest contributors of disability in the world. A whopping 300 million people have depression. The statistics on people self-harming due to depression are equally as damning.

Taking care of your mental health is, therefore, is an essential way of taking care of your general wellbeing. This may not always be easy since stigma still surrounds talk of mental health.

By taking a combination of CBD honey and glycerin, you can be rest assured that your mental health is taken care of. Tests carried out on CBD oil have also shown it to have anti-depressant effects. This will help you manage depression.

The endocannabinoid system also controls anxiety. The tincture will introduce cannabinoids in the body to ensure that the ECS is performing optimally. An optimally-performing ECS mollifies anxiety.


There has been confusion regarding the use of CBD honey tincture. Most people use it the same way they use CBD oil.

However, there are sharp differences between the two that should be noted. First, tincture should be taken in larger doses because it has a less potent volume of CBD oil. It is also taken several times during the day. Second, tincture tastes better than the standard CBD oil due to the presence of flavors or sweeteners. Basically, you get a great tasting product that still has all the benefits of CBD oil as well as the benefits of honey and glycerin.
