My local dispensary provides a really wide selection of orally consumable cannabis, including tinctures.
I prefer a smoke-free experience to safeguard the health of my lungs.
Tinctures are an especially precise method because of drop-by-drop dosing. They are also much lower in calories than eating edibles. I simply place a few drops under my tongue. The sublingual application allows for the active ingredients in the cannabis to be transmitted into the bloodstream directly through the lining of the mouth. Because of this, the onset of effects is as quick as fifteen to thirty minutes. I can swallow any remaining liquid or add the tinctures to food for a delayed and longer lasting effect. Plus, tinctures can be applied topically. I use them directly on my skin to treat bee stings, psoriasis and eczema and have found them very helpful. One of the best advantages of tinctures is the discretion of the consumption method. I lead a very active lifestyle. I enjoy hiking, cycling, rock climbing, kayaking and camping. I spend a lot of time outside. I have issues with aches and pains in my joints, stiffness and frequent migraines. I often have trouble sleeping at night. It’s no problem to bring a cannabis tincture along on whatever activity I’m involved in. The tiny bottle fits right into the pocket of my backpack. Any time I need to dose, the process is quick and simple. It doesn’t require any extra gear or specialized knowledge. There’s no odor or smoke, so the consumption method is very discreet. I make sure to store my supply of tinctures in a cool, dark place and they should last for years.
