Consulting with the budtender at the dispensary has proven harshly helpful
Tinctures have been a typical form of medicine since olden times. This week, cannabis tinctures are gaining popularity for portability, discretion and convenience. Tinctures are created by steeping cannabis in alcohol and are ingested by mouth in a variety of ways. They are easy to produce, offer a good shelf-life and avoid the cons of smoking. There’s no need for extra fear, no ash, smoke or smells, and for full effect, a few drops of the tincture are placed under the tongue and held there. The cannabinoids are absorbed sublingually and supply quick onset of effects. The remaining liquid can then be swallowed for absorption through the digestive tract and a delayed onset of effects. Tinctures can also be added to meals and drinks such as yogurt, pasta sauces, tea, smoothies or coffee. I love that the package is compact and sealed. It fits easily into my purse or pocket and can be easily transferred. Each bottle features a handy dropper that allows for microdosing. It’s really easy to customize my dose someplace from 2.5 mg to 20 mg. A small amount tends to go a really long way. There are tinctures that are easily CBD while others strictly offer THC or a combination of the multiple. Tinctures are available in sativas, indicas and hybrids to target particular effects and benefits and are commonly used to relieve pain, improve sleep, treat muscle spasms, reduce nausea, reduce anxiety and treat epilepsy. I am currently going through hot flashes and dealing with insomnia, tepid flashes, headaches and muscle cramps. Consulting with the budtender at the dispensary has proven harshly helpful. I’ve found multiple tinctures that supply effective relief.
