What Are Weed Tinctures, and What Benefits Do They Provide?

by Canna River Health & Medical

Before there were pharmaceuticals, herbal medicines were mostly used to treat diseases and maintain health. Tinctures were a common form of herbal medicine back in those days and were the oldest medicines known to men.

Depending on what you need, you might look for a CBD/THC tincture or a tincture dropper. It does not matter what you take; the only thing that matters is how you take it, and depending on it, you will feel certain effects.

What is a Tincture?

Tinctures are highly concentrated liquid herbal extracts made by soaking herbs in vegetable glycerin, oil, and alcohol. They are not hard to produce and have a long shelf-life; this makes them a convenient option for consuming weed.

This is mainly for people who are not interested in smoking, and both edibles and tinctures are ingested orally. This means that they travel through the body and pass through the liver before reaching the bloodstream.

This can cause delayed onset of effects that will last about 30 minutes to an hour. But by placing a tincture through a tongue, it can bypass the liver and will be absorbed directly into the bloodstream.

Kinds of Tinctures

There are different kinds of tinctures, and they also provide benefits similar to premium hemp. The kinds of tinctures are as follows:

  • Industrial hemp tinctures (CBD tinctures) are formed with a high concentration of CBD, and they contain less than 0.3% of THC. This confirms that they will not give you a feeling of being high, and they are also federally legal.

  • THC tinctures also have about 0.3% THC, and some provide psychoactive effects. They might be legal in some states and probably will be legal in other states with time.

Depending on the level of ingredients present, the stronger the edibles and tinctures will be.

Benefits of THC Tinctures

  • Lessen nausea related to chemotherapy

  • Relieve pain

  • Reduce muscle spasms

  • Reduce anxiety

  • Treat epilepsy

  • Enhance sleep

How Do You Use Tincture?

Cannabis tinctures are used using a dropper and can be taken under the tongue or mixed into foods and drinks. They are not the same as premium hemp, and the absorption of cannabis will differ based on if you are ingesting the tincture by yourself and not mixing it into your food.

You can absorb more cannabinoids if you add them to food or have recently taken some. As there are no established guidelines for taking cannabis, it is best to consult with your doctor and begin with a low dose.

Final Words

Tinctures are one of the most known methods of consuming cannabis, and tincture droppers are used for the process; they can be made at home with some ingredients. You can also purchase them from an online weed shop, and when purchasing a tincture, you need to choose the correct dose.
