Tinctures are concentrated liquid herbal extracts made from plants and used as herbal medicine. They are taken orally to relieve a wide range of health issues, or as a proactive way to support specific elements of your wellbeing. In chemistry terms, tinctures are solutions that use alcohol and water as a solvent.

What is a Cannabis Tincture?

A cannabis tincture is a liquid that contains high concentrations of its active ingredients (CBD, THC, or other cannabinoids). It is made by soaking the cannabis extract in vegetable glycerin, alcohol, or carrier oil. Once infused into a solvent, the tincture can have a long shelf life, making it a convenient method of cannabis consumption and an ideal alternative to smoking marijuana.

Tinctures can be ingested directly or infused into foods to make cannabis-infused edibles. Once consumed, the cannabinoids pass through the digestive system and the liver before getting into the bloodstream. Hence, there is a delayed onset of effects of around 30 minutes to an hour. In contrast, smoking or vaping cannabis allows the cannabinoids to enter the lungs and go directly to the bloodstream. Nevertheless, if you want to bypass the liver, you can place the tincture under the tongue for a minute or two. The sublingual membranes absorb the cannabinoids and deliver them directly to the bloodstream in minutes.

Tinctures come with droppers for measurement. The dropper allows you to measure and customize your dose depending on your needs. There are typically two kinds of tinctures popular in the cannabis market today:

  1. CBD Tinctures

CBD tinctures contain high concentration levels of CBD infused in a carrier oil or other type of solvent. MCT oil is usually used to make modern CBD tinctures because it is more stable and less likely to become rancid. Some CBD tinctures contain trace amounts of THC and other cannabinoids.

  1. THC Tinctures

THC tinctures contain high concentrations of THC and are usually used for recreational purposes because of the psychoactive effects. You can take them orally or sublingually as well.

The potency of tinctures depends on the concentration of the active ingredient/s present in the container. Some tinctures contain both CBD and THC. Others contain minor cannabinoids such as CBN, CBG, CBC, delta-8 THC, and the like.

Cannabis tinctures may be formulated for specific purposes. Some are designed for sleep, anxiety, and pain. Others are designed specifically for animal use. Make sure to read the label of the tinctures before you buy them.

How to Use Tinctures: Buy Tinctures for your perfect use

Cannabis tinctures are designed to be dosed with droppers. You can take them orally, sublingually, or mixed with foods and beverages. The absorption rate for sublingual administration is faster because it goes directly to your bloodstream. When you ingest or mix it with foods and drinks, the absorption will take at least 30 minutes to an hour.

There are no well-established guidelines for cannabis dosing, but general recommendations are based on what purpose you intend to get from the cannabinoids. It is always appropriate to start with a low dose of 2.5 to 5 mg of CBD or THC and increase your dose gradually until you feel the desired effect. When you feel uncomfortable with a dose, you may have exceeded your tolerance for the cannabinoid and should go lower.

There are various benefits you can get with tinctures, depending on the main active ingredient.
