How To & When To: THC Tinctures | Discover Marijuana
Cannabis medicine comes in a variety of forms, and the tincture is one of our favorites!
Tinctures are liquids containing herbal extracts (cannabis, in our case), and they’re administered “sublingually,” or under the tongue. They can also be swallowed and absorbed via the digestive system, but the two large veins underneath the tongue allow for faster and better absorption of the compounds in a tincture.
Kylee Shumway, Pharmacist in Charge at WholesomeCo, says the tincture is the “most medical” way to use cannabis. That’s because tinctures can be dosed drop by drop, allowing greater precision than other forms of cannabis consumption.
This level of precision is ideal for a Medical Cannabis patient who’s interested in microdosing or finding the “just right” dose.
Shumway and Blake Smith, Chief Scientific Officer at Zion Medicinal, agree that tinctures can benefit nearly every Medical Cannabis patient.
Talk to Kylee Shumway or your local Medical Cannabis pharmacist to learn about the tinctures that may help with your condition.
