Tinctures are an effective and versatile way of ingesting cannabis for those who are both new to the cannabis game those who are seasoned veterans. A tincture, in its essence, is a medicine made by dissolving a drug in alcohol (*vegetable glycerine or apple cider vinegar are also useable for tincture production). Cannabis tinctures can be administered orally, topically or placed in your food or beverage. This makes them one of the most versatile methods of consumption. The product itself typically comes in a glass vial with a dropper or other convenient dispensing cap so you can avoid the guessing game with carefully measured doses.
As with edibles, dropping the tincture into your food takes some time as your body must digest and metabolize the cannabis before the effects kick in. When ingested sublingually, the effects of the tincture set into your bloodstream much sooner (approx 15 to 45 minutes) making this the prefered method for speedy relief.
How do I Dose?
Dosing is quite simple with tinctures, especially when the vial comes with a dropper. 1 drop is generally equal to 1mg of THC or CBD. If you are a newcomer, the 1mg drop is a safe jumping-off point because you can take it slow and gradually work your way up to expert levels. Once you have administered the 1mg, give it a few minutes (15-20) and if the effects are small but noticeable then you can ingest another drop and so on until your desired sensation is reached.
What are the Effects?
Tinctures come in either THC form, CBD form or some combination of the two. If you are dosing with a THC tincture, the effects will be psychoactive meaning mild to intense euphoria, increased visual awareness, significant mood uplifts and/or heavy body relaxation. Essentially, these tinctures are for people who want their consciousness to be altered. CBD tinctures, on the other hand, are designed for users who require the medicinal benefits of cannabis without seeking any psychoactive effects. Basically, no euphoria or altered consciousness. Instead, these users experience a soothing sense of calm, significant pain relief and softening of tension.
Tinctures truly are easy to use and are accessible online. This method of ingesting cannabis + hemp-based oils has been around for centuries and continues to grow in popularity due to its convenience and effectiveness. Whether you are a rookie or a pro, tinctures are a great way to find relief from everyday ailments.
