Oily substances are notoriously difficult to handle, and CBD Oil is no exception. In fact, our manufacturing team has tested a significant amount of different bottle and tincture combinations in an attempt to find the most leakage resistant option.
The bottles and pipettes we currently use were found to be the best, however, they can still leak if not handled correctly. By nature, oil is a messy substance and needs to be handled with special care to prevent leakage.
1) Keep the Bottle Clean
This may seem obvious, but the majority of leakages come down to the bottle not being kept clean.
When removing the pipette from the bottle, it can be easy to accidentally tap the outer side of the bottle. When this happens oil will eventually spread over the screw thread and prevent the bottle from closing properly.
If you have ever tried closing your bottle and noticed that it slides back in the opposite direction, this is likely the cause.
It's important to clean the screw thread straight away, as if the bottle is then closed with oil on the thread, this will be transferred onto the thread of the pipette - making it more difficult to clean later. So, take care when removing the pipette, and if you do touch the outer thread, give it a wipe with a paper towel to ensure the bottle closes as it should.
2) Remove Trapped Air
Sometimes an air bubble can get caught inside the bottle which prevents it from closing properly. If this happens, try firmly twisting the bottle to close it, then holding it in place for ten seconds. This should hopefully force the air to escape through the seams of the pipette.
3) Hold the Pipette Correctly
If the pipette is held upside down, this can cause oil to run down the length of the pipette and spill onto the pipette thread, causing closure problems as mentioned in the first step. To prevent the simply ensure that you never hold the pipette upside down, or at any angle that can cause oil to run in the opposite direction.
