There’s an abundance of cannabis tincture formulas in the marketplace, and nearly as many claims for better health, for those that use them. CBD only cannabis formulas that are derived from hemp can be found in many of the major food and drug stores nationwide, whereas formulas containing THC can only be obtained at a licensed cannabis dispensary.
Cannabis science tells us that CBD and THC work best when used together to provide a score of therapeutic benefits. The CBD counteracts the psychoactivity of the THC, while the THC provides pain relief and inhibits disease progression.
What to Look for in a Cannabis Tincture
These products are so prolific, therefore it’s really important to know what to look for in a quality cannabis tincture. The best formulas are made with top-quality cannabis oil that has been extracted using a Co2 extraction process. This produces a cleaner formula free from heavy metals, pesticides, and solvents. Isolating these harmful properties and removing them from the finished formulation ensures a superior product.
Top brands use organic MCT oil as a carrier that enables the cannabinoids to more effectively enter the bloodstream by protecting them from the digestive system.
What are the Benefits?
One of the most obvious benefits of cannabis tincture is its discreet delivery and precise dosing. The dropper bottle application can be measured to the drop allowing for micro-dosing with fast-acting sublingual delivery. In addition, the tincture formulas are odorless and easy to use, which makes them great for dosing in nearly every situation.
Secondly, is variety. Cannabis tincture brands have done a great job understanding their market and developing products that provide excellent experiences. There are formulas aimed at specific ailments such as anxiety, stress, insomnia, as well as those focused on general well-being.
Many people incorporate a cannabis tincture into their life as a way to maintain balance within their body, to perform better intellectually, and physically. Formulas highlight specific cannabinoids in ratios that science has determined to be beneficial for healing and maintaining health.
Lastly, it’s a versatile way to ingest cannabis. A tincture can be added to food or taken under the tongue for a fast sublingual experience.
Are Tinctures Better?
Where science has failed to prove conclusively whether cannabis tincture is effective at providing relief of any of the conditions it claimed to, sales numbers indicate consumer confidence that says it is. In California, cannabis concentrates account for 33% of the total market and a good portion of that is a result of tincture products.
Cannabis tinctures can be better in a lot of ways than smoking, vaping, or eating a cannabis edible. It’s easy to precisely dose in a discreet manner while maintaining the option for a potent and fast-acting sublingual experience. The tincture can also be used as a topical serving a dual purpose and therefore providing savings to the consumer.
