What Are Cannabis Tinctures?
Cannabis tinctures are liquid, alcohol based extracts that are consumed orally. They are created by a simple process that involves absorbing cannabinoids and other plant materials into high-proof alcohol and straining out the plant material. Many products on the market are often sold/marketed as tinctures but are not a true tincture. Tinctures differ because they can be delivered sublingually, meaning it is absorbed into the bloodstream through the membranes of the mouth and tongue. With sublingual administration, the effects are not altered, diminished, or time delayed by digestive processes. In contrast to simply swallowing the oil or tincture, this method avoids first pass metabolism and therefore increases bioavailability. With sublingual administration, cannabinoids are not passing into the digestive system, where the liver may prevent the absorption of many psychoactive compounds. This method of consumption may offer faster results than oral ingestion. Why choose tincture over other methods of consumption? Maybe you experience trouble swallowing or digesting.This method may provide a quicker uptake and delivery, with a shorter duration of experience. Liquid dosing also provides precise measurements, so you always get the desired amount. Tinctures are available in a variety of ratios and strengths to fit your needs.
