Smoking, vaping, and dabbing are the most popular ways cannabis fans get THC into their system. However, THC tinctures have a long history in pre-prohibition alternative healing. Now that it’s easier for customers and companies to experiment with cannabis, products like THC tinctures are making a huge comeback.

While liquid extracts don’t offer the same immediacy or flavor as smokable cannabis, there are many potential benefits of THC tinctures. Indeed, for some MMJ patients, THC tinctures may be the only way to safely and effectively incorporate weed into their lives.

What Are The Most Noteworthy Benefits Of THC Tinctures?

Before explaining the many benefits of THC tinctures, it’s significant to mention that a true “tincture” isn’t the same as an “oil.” Tinctures should only use alcohol as the primary solvent, while cannabis oils use other solvents like butane or CO2 to extract cannabinoids. Interestingly, this preparation method could be considered one of THC tinctures’ biggest significant benefits.

Why? Well, since all people need to make THC tinctures are high-proof alcohol, mason jars, and cannabis flowers, they’re incredibly DIY-friendly. Even if people only have access to THC-rich nugs at their dispensary, they could whip up a weed tincture at home. The same can’t be said for commercial butane-extracted THC oils.

Aside from this fascinating extraction method, THC tinctures are ideal for customers who can’t (or don’t want to) smoke. Although vaping gives customers a non-combustion alternative, many patients don’t feel comfortable inhaling THC-rich strains. Also, it may be detrimental for people with chronic lung conditions to constantly use cannabis joints to manage other health concerns.

THC tinctures are also far easier to dose than smokable cannabis products. When customers buy a manufactured THC tincture, the bottle should have a label that clearly shows the total THC concentration per serving size. Also, many at-home THC testing kits can help patients measure the cannabinoids in their DIY THC tinctures.

Lastly, it doesn’t take long for THC tinctures to have an immense impact. If patients put their dropperful of THC tincture under their tongue, the sublingual glands will absorb this cannabinoid into their bloodstream. While the effects of a THC tincture may not be as immediate as joint, they aren’t as slow as an edible. Also, customers will enjoy virtually 100 percent of their THC tincture’s concentration using the sublingual method.

How Could Patients Take Advantage Of The Benefits Of THC Tinctures?

It’s always best for people new to THC tinctures to speak with a doctor who has experience with medical marijuana. A trained physician should know which THC product would be most appropriate considering a patient’s condition. There may be cases where THC is not a suitable choice, especially if a patient is already taking other supplements or medications. Therefore, it’s crucial to get an MMJ doctor’s approval before experimenting with THC tinctures.

Once patients know they can safely use a THC tincture, it’s best to start with the minimum recommended dose. Many people believe microdosing THC has a better therapeutic effect than using high doses of this cannabinoid. Since THC is psychoactive, it can hit hard if people haven’t already built up a tolerance. To avoid side effects like paranoia, it’s essential to tread cautiously and slowly when giving THC tinctures a try.
