Tinctures have a long history with records of them being used in the western world back in 1843. There are medical journals indicating that people started using cannabis infused tinctures for medicinal purposes.
Once listed in medical almanacs such as the United States Pharmacopeia, tinctures were considered by some physicians as “one of the most valuable medicines we possess.” People are starting to rediscover just how effective they can be.
Simply put, Tinctures are alcohol solutions that have been infused with other substances. Herbal tinctures, as medicines, have been around for thousands of years and used on just about every ailment known to man, and in fact they are still used to date.
You’ll want to be careful when first starting to use tinctures, you’ll need to learn about the proper dosages. A small dose of one milliliter may contain all the THC you need, consuming more could adversely affect your health so as with concentrates, low and slow is the key.
Tinctures may or may not be stronger than edibles, but they are absorbed faster and more efficiently allowing it to get into your bloodstream quicker than if you were to consume them like food.
