Tinctures are concentrated extracts made by soaking cannabis flower in alcohol or vinegar to pull out the active ingredients and concentrate them into a liquid. Tinctures have been around for millennia and are a key component of traditional herbal medicine. Today, tinctures are a nice entry point for people new to cannabis.
Tinctures are usually taken orally, and they come with a measured dropper so it’s easy to get an exact dose. Although cannabis tincures can be mixed into foods or drinks, they are most often taken sublingually, or under your tongue. By keeping the tincture under your tongue for a minute before swallowing, you’ll feel the effects more quickly than other edibles because it’s quickly absorbed into your bloodstream rather than passing through your digestive system.
