The Best Tinctures in Nevada
Some cannabis consumers are turning away from the traditional methods of smoking and vaping to protect their lungs and avoid the harshness of inhalation. For those looking to get the plant’s medical benefits without smoking it, tinctures, a long-used but under-recognized product in the cannabis scene, are a great alternative!
Tinctures are alcohol-based, liquid concentrates that can be consumed on their own or added as a supplement to food and drink, often taken sublingually using a dropper under the tongue. Making tinctures is similar to cannabis oil, where alcohol acts as a solvent to extract both THC and CBD from flower. However, with tinctures, the alcohol remains a part of the final product.
While they’ve recently become more popular, doctors commonly used tinctures as far back as the 1800s, popularized as a pain relief remedy for body and muscle cramping.
The Benefits of Cannabis Tinctures
There are many important variables to consider when searching for a cannabis product that meets your needs. Price, convenience, and the benefits of the potency of the medicinal effects all play a significant role when deciding what to pick.
When it comes to getting the most bang for your buck, tinctures offer an excellent value for what you pay. While a 750mg tincture bottle might cost twice as much as a pack of edibles or a vape cartridge, it gives users more grams of cannabis for their dollar, making it a more efficient purchase in the long run.
Tinctures’ liquid form is also a huge benefit, as they can conveniently be placed in a backpack, purse, or even pocket and used on the go! For people who cannot inhale smoke for medical reasons, tinctures are a great way to feel relaxation and pain relief at a moment’s notice, without harming the respiratory system. They’re also odorless, allowing you to get your dose discretely and quickly without attracting any unwanted attention.
One of the most significant advantages of tinctures as far as medicinal use is to administer precise amounts using the dropper. When smoking flower or eating an edible, you have a much tougher time controlling the amount of cannabis you’re consuming, but with tinctures, you can tailor the amount specifically to your liking! Our tincture bottles also have labeling providing instructions, along with helpful information on the amount of THC or CBD infused in each drop, so you know what you’re getting every time.
How to Use Cannabis TInctures
The proper methods for using and dosing cannabis tinctures are straightforward but are processed by the body at different speeds.
Many people choose to consume their tincture sublingually for the quickest results, placing the droplets under their tongue and waiting about 30-60 seconds before swishing the remaining liquid around their mouth and swallowing. Doing this ensures that all cannabinoids in the tincture are absorbed by membranes under the tongue and on the insides of the cheeks and immediately carried into the bloodstream, where they can begin to produce effects. Sublingual effects can be felt in as little as 15 minutes and last for a few hours when using a tincture.
Another method for using tinctures is to add droplets right into food or drink to mask the taste. Keep in mind that when doing this, the onset effects will be more similar to an edible and take about an hour to kick in since your body is working to digest both the tincture and the food.
