What are THC and CBD Tinctures?

Marijuana tinctures are derived from cannabis extracts. Tinctures come in both THC dominant and CBD dominant varieties, so whether you want psychoactive or non-psychoactive effects, there’s a tincture for you. Alcohol is the most common solvent used for making a marijuana tincture. Tinctures can offer numerous benefits which make them useful for both medicinal and recreational use. Weed tinctures used to be one of the most prominent ways for the medicinal use of marijuana. 

How Do I Use THC and CBD Tinctures?

THC and CBD tinctures are best taken orally. When used sublingual (under the tongue), tinctures are quickly absorbed into the bloodstream, taking only a few minutes to feel the effects. When you add tinctures to foods and beverages, it will need to pass through your digestive system before the effects start to kick-in. Like all edibles, this method can take anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours before users will feel the effects.

Dosage control is one of the main benefits of using marijuana tinctures. They typically come with droppers that allow users to administer precise dosing for the right amount of medicine. Tinctures also come in a range of cannabinoid ratios and strengths. 

CBD tinctures can help reduce anxiety, treat epilepsy, and relieve pain.

THC tinctures improve sleep, reduce muscle spasms, treat chemo-induced nausea, and relieve pain.
