Tinctures are gaining in popularity amongst cannabis consumers, both medically and recreationally – and for good reason!
Tinctures are an effective and healthy alternative to smoking, vaporizing, or eating edibles, and can easily be mixed into juices, teas, most food, or just taken under the tongue. They are quickly absorbed, too – affects can be felt as soon as 15 minutes after ingestion.
Tinctures are liquid extracts made from herbs, and come in both alcohol-based and non-alcohol options (olive oil, coconut oil, vegetable glycerin, etc.) They’ve been used for many years by holistic practitioners, as it’s very simple to infuse the herb of your choice for a potent remedy. The cannabis industry quickly caught on and the market now has some amazing options for consumers.
We recently got two tinctures in from Mackenzie Medicinals: a 20:1 and a 1:1 CBD to THC ratio. William and Gail, the creators of these lovely products, started developing their tinctures soon after William was diagnosed with basal cell carcinoma. They explored their options, and found that cannabis helped immensely in his recovery. Ever since they have been sharing their passion with others.
I started my morning recently with a few drops of the 1:1 in my tea. The dosage is 10mg per ml, so being a lower-tolerance consumer, I decided to start smaller than suggested. The taste is amazing and so simple: subtle hints of cannabis detected in this coconut-oil blend. Typically, edibles and tinctures hit me fast, so after about 20 minutes, I started feeling it: my body was a little tingly and relaxed, and as time went on, these affects heightened. Later that afternoon, I took a few more drops, and ended up sleeping like a baby that night – which is rare for me!
Mackenzie Medicinals’ 1:1 blend is great for people who want pain-relieving and anti-anxiety benefits with less of the psychoactive side-affects.
If you’re looking for all-organic, oil-based tinctures, be sure to give Mackenzie’s Medicinals a try.
