The 411 on Cannabinoid Tinctures
An in-depth guide to Cannabinoid Tinctures!
Instead of taking too much of an edible, or vaping too much… tinctures are usually activated at just a few drops, to an ML or two.
This is beneficial for users seeking to control their dose, and the effects cannabinoids provide. For example, if you need to medicate for longer periods of time, and your medicating needs are more for pain, then ingesting a bit more tincture than recommended dosage could be useful to you, IF, your tolerance and experience allow it. Always err on the side of caution.
If however, you’re a newbie and just getting your feet wet, OR, if you’re interested in micro-dosing, then tinctures like our Delta 8 Blends are useful for controlling exactly how medicated you get. Usually, tinctures are activated at just a few drops, so you can take as little as you want… wait, and if you’re still in need of relief, then you could take more.
What are tinctures usually made of?
Tinctures can be made using a varied list of fatty oils such as MCT oil, Olive OIl, Sunflower Oil, and basically anything with enough fat to bind the cannabinoids into it. The oils also have the benefit of making them more bioavailable to the body. This is because cannabinoids are fat-soluble, so it works better when formulated into fat.
Tinctures also contain cannabinoids, and these can vary from Delta 8-THC, CBD, CBG, CBN, HHC, or anything derived from the cannabis/hemp plant!
Some companies, like us, also reintroduce other compounds like terpenes and full-spectrum sources.
How do I medicate with Tinctures?
- Use it sublingually under your tongue, hold it for at least a minute – then swallow. Effects usually begin around 45 minutes or so. This method is BEST for controlling your dosage as mentioned at the beginning of the article.
- Drizzle a drop or more on some food, like a plate of pasta or even a salad! Using this method delays the onset of effects by a little bit more, but usually, the effects are felt for a bit longer. Users who use this method, normally begin to feel effects after 2 hours.
- Put some on your face! Because tinctures are usually made with fatty oils, these oils like MCT or Olive Oil can be very beneficial for your skin. Cannabinoids have been shown to possess anti-inflammatory, as well as anti-bacterial properties that can be beneficial for skin conditions like acne.
