Cannabis tinctures are alcohol-based solutions that contains cannabinoids extracted from hemp plants. Cannabis tinctures are created by soaking high-grade cannabis in a high-proof alcoholic solution, then heating the solution to separate the cannabinoids and terpenes from the plant. Once the remaining plant residue is removed from the solution, the tincture is complete.
Like cannabis liquid consumables, cannabis tinctures come in two main types: THC and CBD. THC tinctures are recommended for customers seeking psychoactive effects. CBD tinctures are recommended for customers that wish to relax and improve their mood. Cannabis tinctures have varying ratios of THC and CBD, providing a wide range of strengths and combinations to meet the needs of a wider customer base.
There are two methods of consuming a cannabis tincture: sublingually or orally. Placing drops of the tincture under the tongue and letting the drops sit without swallowing them causes the tincture to directly enter the bloodstream for an instant effect. Consuming the tincture will require the digestive system to process the tincture, which can delay the tincture’s effect and possibly weaken the effect due to the acidic conditions of the stomach.
Cannabis tinctures allow customers to carefully measure the dosage used, a benefit absent from other methods such as smoking or consumables. Tinctures are a discrete method of cannabis consumption. Also, cannabis tinctures are highly potent; for most customers, a few drops are sufficient to achieve the customers’ desired results.
