Cannabis tinctures are a staple at modern provisioning centers but they are often the most misunderstood. The biggest advantage cannabis tincture has over other forms is that it’s a liquid, which allows for almost limitless possibilities. Tincture is often sugar free, fast-acting, and easy to titrate in small flexible doses. For more information on tincture itself check out our blog, Are Cannabis Tinctures Right for You?
While tincture has many benefits, one of the most common complaints is it’s taste as they are often made from alcohol or MCT oil. While some tinctures may not taste great on their own you can make a great tasting cannabis cocktail with your favorite flavors.
Of the various ways to medicate with cannabis, ingesting or eating it in some form is one of the most effective. One of the oldest and most versatile methods of ingesting marijuana is the tincture. Cannabis tincture is a particular liquid that has been infused with cannabinoids such as THC or CBD. This medicine is usually kept in a bottle with a dropper for ease of dosing. Traditionally, tinctures are made using alcohol, but other mediums such as glycerine and MCT oil, a coconut oil that has a more fluid state, are also forms of tincture.
