Cannabis tincture is a remedy that has been around for a long time but has recently seen a boom in popularity. It was first developed as the main form of medical cannabis use in the United States and is now used for medicinally in this day-and-age. The tincture is basically cannabis infused extract made with alcohol. The THC is extracted from the cannabis product by the alcohol. Tinctures are a great way to manage pain and are also great for experienced and novice marijuana users alike.

Tincture is usually administered in a dropper so that it can be easily measured and dosed appropriately. For novice users it is recommended that you start with about 1mL and go from there. Slowly increase the dose especially if you feel the effects onset quickly. It is important to build up slowly until you get to a comfortable dosage that you like.

For users who are weight watching, tincture is a perfect substitute to high sugar edibles such as gummies or brownies. The alcohol has a low calorie count and the tincture actually has an enjoyable flavor especially in high concentrated products. You can even incorporate the tincture into your regular meals or use it to spice up an interesting dish. It is also recommended for use when making gelatin or salad dressing. I am sure with all the creative minds out there some pretty great dishes could come into being.
