A drop of tincture a day keeps the blues away.
Weed tinctures is a medicinal solution of cannabis in water or, more traditionally, alcohol. In previous centuries, herbal tinctures were a widely used form of medicine. Cannabis tincture can go back to the mid-1800s. But it wasn’t until the recent wave of legalization that weed tincture became commonly accepted in a modern context. Tinctures are versatile products you can easily add to your food or drink or take straight from the dropper. It also has a benefit over other edible cannabis because they’re easy to absorb under the tongue for immediate effects.
A tincture is a fantastic product for anyone looking at weed as a wellness resource. You can sense the benefits immediately as you would with smokable or vaporized cannabis, but in a form that’s easy to carry around and use discreetly. The dropper setup gives you greater control and leeway over how and when you dose cannabis.
Tinctures can also be an effective way to administer CBD to pets. CBD can be an incredibly effective wellness supplement for dogs, especially our furry friends with arthritis or chronic inflammation. Sprinkling some tincture over your pet’s food is a quick and easy way to encourage their daily well-being and happiness.
Taking weed tinctures sublingually is your best bet if you want to experience a rapid onset of effects. Tinctures can be as fast-acting when applied correctly as smoking a joint or hitting a vape. To get the most out of your tincture, drop your desired dose under your tongue and let it sit and absorb for roughly 30 seconds before you swallow. If you take it straight down the gullet without letting it sit under your tongue, the effects may be delayed as they would with an edible. You may also feel the effects instantly or more so later when the tincture is digested and absorbed through the liver.
But immediate onset may not be your primary concern. You can also add tincture to virtually any beverage or food (as long as the flavors don’t clash too hard). Add CBD tincture to your breakfast or “spike” a tasty non-alcoholic beverage with some THC tincture in the evening. The possibilities are endless.
