A Guide to Precisely Dosing THC Tincture
Here’s everything you need to learn about THC tincture.
Of the many incredible benefits of the legalization of cannabis, providing patients with diverse, safer, and discrete methods of consumption is a top one.
Safe methods of administering cannabis for patients include THC oils, edibles, and sublingual for under-the-tongue dosing.
Sublingual products have evolved to take various forms, including sprays, tablets, and popular THC tinctures.
Cannabis tincture has enjoyed a recent surge in popularity because of its versatility, convenience, and fast-acting properties.
And if you’re only interested in the medical benefits of CBD but not THC’s psychoactive effects, you can grab a CBD tincture.
The pleasant effects will boost your creativity while relieving your anxiety with no intense psychoactive effects. It would be like a breath of fresh air for your mind.
Since tincture is extracted from specific cannabis chemovars, they will inherit the traits of the particular strain.
For example, Mota – THC Sleep Tincture is extracted from an indica-based THC oil to help induce deep relaxation so you can fall asleep faster.
On the other hand, expect a boost in energy and creativity from any Sativa-dominant THC tincture.
But the positive tincture effects don’t end there; medical marijuana patients have been especially flocking to THC tincture for its ability to soothe pain, aches, and other chronic conditions.
If you want to get in on all the tincture action, here’s the post for you. We’ll delve deeper into tincture, how to properly dose it, some of the best ways to consume it and give you a list of benefits that come with grabbing a bottle.
What are THC Tinctures
So what is cannabis tincture anyway? THC tincture is a cannabis extract for sublingual consumption, not smoking or vaping.
To extract cannabis root tincture, the cannabis plant is first soaked in a food-grade liquid such as oil, glycerine, or alcohol.
As the cannabis plant soaks in the base liquid, essential compounds such as terpenes and other cannabinoids strip from the plant matter and merge with the base liquid.
The terpenes and cannabinoid-rich liquid is then strained to separate the unwanted plant matter. You now have a cannabinoid-rich liquid ready to consume. That is how to make cannabis tincture.
Cannabis tinctures typically come in glass bottles with droppers, making it easier to administer different doses. You’ll also find THC or CBD level indications on the bottle or package.
However, Bud Express Now also provides you with a dose recommendation.
How to Properly Dose THC Tincture
If you pick any THC tincture product from our online dispensary in Canada, you’ll see the dosing information indicated on the package.
Usually, your dose will depend on the reason for taking the cannabis tincture and your tolerance.
For those looking for a powerful nap, a single high dose may be ideal. However, if you want to boost your wellness for daytime activities, micro-dosing on Mota – THC Sativa Tincture can help you achieve a sense of mood elevation.
If you have a low tolerance or do not regularly consume cannabis products, we recommend starting low and building your way up.
After pumping the liquid into your dropper, it would be best to only deposit a quarter of the amount in it under your tongue and observe the effects.
The Effects of Different THC Tincture Doses
Always remember tincture comes with a variety of strengths and cannabinoid ratios. At Bud Express Now, you’ll see clear labelling for this information.
Tinctures with higher amounts of CBD and lower THC will induce relaxation with little to no high. On the other hand, a tincture with high levels of THC guarantees psychoactive effects.
Here are other effects you can expect from different doses of tincture.
|THC Tincture Dose in MG||Types of effects||What It’s Suitable For|
|1 to 2||Moderate relief of symptoms, increased focus and creativity||First-time consumersMicro-dosing|
|2.5 to 15||Strong relief of symptoms, Moderate psychoactive effects, Euphoria||Stubborn symptoms|
|30 to 50||Strong relief of symptoms, Moderate to high psychoactive effects||Those with a higher THC tolerance|
|50 to 100||High psychoactive effects||Severe symptoms and conditions|
How Do You Consume THC Tincture
Most people prefer consuming tincture sublingually. Here’s the reason. Sublingual consumption leads to faster and stronger effects.
Load your dropper with the required amount of cannabis tincture and place some drops under your tongue.
Allow the tincture to stay under your tongue for about 30 seconds before swallowing. The soft tissues that line lips, cheeks, and under your tongue absorb the tincture directly into your bloodstream.
Unlike ingestion, which takes tincture to your stomach and then the liver before the bloodstream, sublingual ingestion is a much faster route, leading to faster onset of effects.
How Long Does It Take for THC Tincture Effects to Kick In?
If you let the weed tincture sit under your tongue for 30 to 45 seconds, the effects will kick in within 15 to 30 minutes.
On the other hand, swallowing tincture directly may lead to delayed onset of effects. However, the effects will be much more potent when they finally kick in.
Another way to consume tincture is by incorporating it into your sauce dressing or finished dishes.
You can, however, not cook with tincture. This is because tincture contains THC and CBD that have already been decarboxylated or activated.
Exposing this active compound to further heat would degrade them, rendering them useless from a medical standpoint.
Benefits of Using Cannabis Tinctures
One of the reasons tinctures have become so popular among patients and recreational cannabis users is that they are considered one of the healthiest ways to consume cannabis.
Smoking or vaping cannabis may seem intimidating to some patients. Additionally, equipment such as a grinder, lighter, and pipe isn’t always a delight to carry.
Tincture, however, is in a convenient bottle with a dropper. Essentially giving you everything you need to consume cannabis in that bottle with no need for accessories such as a torch and rolling paper.
With tincture, you also cut back on the prep time you could have used prepping your cannabis before use.
Another tier of convenience with tincture is the diversity in product type. For example, if you’re looking for hard-hitting psychoactive effects, you can grab a THC tincture like Diamond Concentrates – 1000mg THC Tincture – Mint.
Patients who only prefer the medical benefits without the psychoactive effects can get our CBD tincture like Alison Wonderland 200MG Full Spectrum CBD.
Tincture offers two levels of discretion. First, at a glance, a weed tincture bottle and the entire package resemble a wellness supplement or a typical skincare product.
Secondly, the tincture doesn’t feature the characteristic cannabis odour, so you could take your tincture dose from anywhere, and people around you won’t know what is happening.
3. Precise Dosing
With tincture, you can control your dosage down to a drop. For example, if you buy weed online at At BudExpressNOW, your tincture will come with a measured dropper that allows you to dose precisely down to a milligram.
Our Mary’s Medibles : Low Dose THC Tincture 750mg is precisely dosed with 50 ml or 750mg THC in the entire bottle.
Also, there’s no dosing cap for tincture in the market. So for patients who need a stronger dosage, you can easily find a tincture with a higher dose.
For example, our Alison Wonderland 2000MG THC boasts 2000mg THC and packs strong psychoactive punches for patients who need something stronger.
4. Fast Acting
Since tincture is taken sublingually under the tongue, it would be adsorbed directly to the bloodstream through the tissues in the mouth.
This could lead to faster onset of effects when compared to ingesting edibles. Even though tincture effects are slower to set in than smoking, they last longer than smoking or vaping effects.
5. Full Spectrum
Since tincture is extracted from whole-plant cannabis, ingesting it may lead to the entourage effect because of the presence of cannabinoids and terpenes.
The entourage effect is a phenomenon in which compounds in cannabis work together to produce unique effects and benefits.
6. No Sensitive Ingredients
Tincture is made with only a food-grade liquid base and cannabis plants. That means ingredients such as gelatine, artificial colouring, and sugar, which may aggravate allergies, are not incorporated.
7. Shelf Stable
Most tincture is made with a food-based alcohol solvent, which also acts as a preservative for the compounds.
For this reason, the tincture can stay fresh and effective for years if you store it properly in a dark, cool place.
