Simply put, tinctures are liquid extracts made from herbs. They are usually extracted in alcohol but they can also be extracted in vegetable glycerine or apple cider vinegar.
Tinctures are easy and convenient to use. Because they are taken directly under the tongue, they enter the bloodstream quicker than by any other means of ingesting cannabis. This means that the action in the body is usually faster acting.
While some tinctures can immediately help someone relax or sleep better, others are more nutritive and may take several weeks of continual use before they see better results.
How To Use Tinctures
Tincture drops are often administered under the tongue. Read the instructional label of the tincture for the desired effect.
They can also be mixed into foods and drinks, such as yogurt, smoothies, and soups. Some people use tinctures because, unlike edibles such as cookies or brownies, they have very few calories.
How to Make Cannabis Tinctures
Making tinctures isn’t difficult, but it can take a couple of weeks.
Mix cannabis and high-proof ethyl alcohol in a jar, then seal it and put it in a freezer. It can soak anywhere from a week to six months, but the jar will need to be shaken for one minute each day to keep the cannabinoids evenly distributed.
To finish the process, filter out the cannabis plant matter from the remaining tincture liquid using the coffee filter.
The tincture will be usable for years if kept in a cool, dry place out of direct light.
