One of the Wild West’s pioneers in edibles since 2008, VCC Brands is committed to bringing a range of healthy, consistent, and effective products to serve patients. VCC has an entire line of indica- and sativa-dominant tinctures. For overall effects on my system, I liked the CBD Balance 1:1 CBD:THC best.

CBD Balance’s infused oil is obtained through a CO2 extraction process, which is nontoxic and avoids contact with flammable petroleum-based solvents, like butane. This tincture has a pleasant vibe to it, and with the balanced components of CBD and THC, I definitely found it to be a relaxant vs. a stimulant. I didn’t find it as effective with anxiety as some of the other tinctures I’ve tried, but when I consumed a full dropper, I got superb relief from body aches and enjoyed a little chilled-out euphoria.

Don’t miss the rest of our reviews of tinctures for anxiety.

CBD Balance has mellow notes of cannabis, and its MCT oil base make it easy to consume sublingually. It does have a faintly sour aftertaste. CBD Balance is on the pricey side, and I’d recommend the THC-based indica or sativa tinctures for those looking to save and don’t mind a little psychoactivity. But in terms of effectiveness, this formula is certainly worth shelling out for if it’s in your budget.

The wrap: For those looking for a balanced CBD-forward tincture, you can trust in VCC’s excellent reputation and the consistent potency of its products.
