Tinctures are starting to be in high demand among people who want convenient, accurate doses of cannabis while they’re on the go. The first known use of cannabis tinctures in the western world was in 1843, at which point there were medical journal entries indicating people had started using them for medicinal reasons.
Once people realized how useful tinctures are as a way to get precise doses of cannabis, their popularity started to rise. By 1851, tinctures were listed in medical almanacs like United States Pharmacopeia. Queen Victoria’s personal physician referred to tinctures as, “one of the most valuable medicines we possess.” Learn more about this phenomenal cannabis product to determine if it’s right for you.
What Are Tinctures?
Simply put, a tincture is a solution of alcohol that’s been infused with any type of medication. In the case of cannabis tinctures, it’s a concentrated cannabis extract in alcohol. These solutions are incredibly easy to use, store, and transport, which makes them convenient for people who rely on consistent doses of cannabis, no matter where they are. One of the best parts about cannabis tinctures is how easy they are to use without smoking or any additional equipment.
How to Consume THC Tinctures
Since tinctures have very few calories, some people like to mix them into drinks or food recipes. They can also be added to existing dishes to turn just about anything into a cannabis edible. The most common and effective way to use tinctures, though, is sublingually (or under the tongue). Taking tinctures sublingually is efficient because there’s a large artery that runs under the tongue.
Doses as low as 1mL can be very effective when consumed in this manner. To take a tincture sublingually, simply use the dropper to administer your cannabis tincture under the tongue, then hold it there for about 30 seconds. After the 30 seconds have passed, you may swallow your tincture and wait for effects to take hold.
How Tinctures Affect the Body
When consumed in a food or drink, tinctures may affect a person similar to how edibles work. The effects will set in quickly and might be even more powerful when tinctures are consumed sublingually. The effects of a sublingual dose from a cannabis tincture can start to kick in within as little as 30 minutes, and may last for up to six hours. The effects will be similar to those felt from other cannabis products.
