If you want to experience the healing powers of cannabis right away and smoking or vaping is not your thing then try using marijuana tinctures. A tincture is also known as golden dragon or green dragon. These are alcohol-based cannabis extracts that are more like infused alcohol.
Before cannabis was vaped or smoked as medicine, tinctures were the most common form of cannabis medicine in the United States before the prohibition. And don’t let the name green dragon fool you because tinctures may be potent but are also soothing and very mild. The effects of tinctures depend on the strain’s potency and its cannabinoid compound content.
Why Taking Tinctures Is The Best?
For most people who use medical cannabis, tinctures are the best mode of intake. Tinctures are usually placed under the tongue where large networks of blood vessels are located. When the medication is placed under the tongue, the components of the tincture are readily absorbed into the bloodstream. You will be able to experience recreational or therapeutic effects quicker.
Another thing about tinctures is that this may be added to different kinds of food and beverages. You can place tinctures in juices, ice creams, sherbets, gelatin, soups, salad dressing, and mashed potatoes and gravy.
And if you need immediate relief or you just can't handle smoking or vaping CBD or THC then a tincture is the best alternative. Seniors, children, and people who are very sick can benefit so much from taking tinctures.
Can You Take Tinctures Anytime?
Tinctures should be taken under the supervision of your doctor or a marijuana-friendly medical professional. Doctors will give you a prescription for the right kind of tincture to use. Just like any prescription for any medication, he will place the dose and the duration of your treatment.
Tinctures used for medical ailments and diseases may need prolonged or extended treatments and thus you need to take the tincture for many weeks or months. Tinctures are often taken without food so the effects are more potent and therefore you’ll feel the relief immediately.
If you want to take marijuana tinctures for any medical condition, consult your doctor. There are over the counter marijuana tinctures but you must find a reliable dispensary or shop to buy from. Do not use homemade tinctures because the quality and effectiveness may be questionable. Trust only tinctures from top suppliers with good ratings or reviews.
