Ever since I got my medical marijuana card, I have typically stuck to the products that I am used to.
I have been buying the same pack of edible gummies since my very first visit.
The last time I went to the dispensary, I decided that I wanted to try something different. I had heard a lot about the THC tincture products. I liked the idea of something that was as easy as a few drops under the tongue. However, it was definitely a little bit more expensive than what I was used to paying for my edibles. I talked with the budtender about how it all works. He told me how to use the tincture. He said to hold the drops under my tongue before swallowing, as the cannabis compounds enter the body through the blood vessels under the tongue. If there are cannabinoids that did not get absorbed, they will enter through the digestive tract, similar to an edible. When I tried it out, I noticed that the tincture had a very strong taste, almost similar to a very strong alcohol. The effects of the tincture took about fifteen minutes to kick in. I was able to give myself a similar dose to what I am used to taking, so it was just the right amount for me. Overall, I think I prefer the edibles, but I am glad I tried the THC tincture. I can certainly see the benefits to using it.
