cbd oil thc tincture

I love how quickly it reduces my anxiety, and I appreciate that it helps me decompress after a long day. As someone who misses being able to light up, I also thoroughly enjoy that this tincture smells more like weed than any other tincture I’ve used. The dosing chart that comes with every Rosebud CBD oil order ( and lives on the Rosebud website ) is super helpful as well. Plus, Rosebud is a woman-founded company.

Also good to know: this pick contains no additives, preservatives, or fillers, and it only has two ingredients: certified organic MCT (coconut) oil, and organically grown hemp extract. It’s also a full-spectrum hemp extract that’s been third-party lab tested for cannabinoid profile and potency, terpenes profile, bacteria and mold, pesticides and solvents, and heavy metals. Additionally, it’s vegan and gluten-free, containing less than 0.3% THC.

Rosebud CBD oil: 350mg

Pros: Smells deliciously like weed, and the bottle cap design is fantastic—it’s one of the most leak-proof CBD oils in this list. This pick is rigorously tested for safety and potency, and Rosebud makes their test results available to the public. Each Rosebud CBD oil purchase comes with a handy dosing chart as well. Also, Rosebud ships anywhere in the United States.

Cons: Might not be ideal for people who don’t like added flavoring.

One full dropper of this pick (1ml) contains 4.2mg of CBD and 4.2mg of THC, but since I’m currently in a microdosing phase, I typically stick with 0.5ml doses.

Following the steps above will yield a bottle of basic cannabis tincture. There are other tincture recipes you can experiment with, such as Master Wu’s Green Dragon.

A cannabis tincture is a type of cannabis extract that is usually alcohol-based. Tinctures have gained popularity among cannabis consumers since they are a smokeless consumption method and can be easily prepared at home.

One more distinction of cannabis tinctures is that they are easy to dose. Rather than winging it with a few puffs of a joint or a nibble of a brownie, an eyedropper tells you exactly how much cannabis you are ingesting via tincture. This point is especially important for those who are new or sensitive to the psychoactive effects of THC. While some cannabis consumers report adverse effects from ingesting too much THC through edibles, this issue can be averted by placing a few drops of tincture under the tongue. If getting too high is a concern, cannabis consumers can spit out the tincture after letting it sit under the tongue for at least 30 seconds.

Do tinctures get you drunk?

Even though cannabis tinctures constitute an edible form of marijuana, they work much faster than traditional edibles like brownies or gummies. In fact, if taken correctly, the effects of cannabis tinctures can begin in a few seconds, as opposed to the typical hour or more of weed edibles. That’s because the sublingual tissue under the tongue allows the cannabinoids to pass directly into the bloodstream, instead of going through the digestive tract to reach the bloodstream.

There are several reasons why many commercial tinctures are made with medium chain triglyceride, or MCT, oil, according to Rae. “MCT oil is cheap. It’s also abundant, virtually flavorless, colorless, and it has a high smoke point, which means you can heat it up quite high for cannabinoid extraction, without burning the oil or changing its flavor,” Rae says.

If you do go the oil infusion route, you may want to introduce heat to speed up the infusion process.

Getting drunk on a tincture is possible but not likely, according to Dr. Adie Rae, a neuroscientist and scientific adviser to Weedmaps. “For alcohol-based tinctures, you’d have to drink a lot of it, and if it contained THC, you’d feel the ‘overdose’ of THC long before you felt an alcohol buzz. A typical shot glass is 40 milliliter, just over 1 fluid ounce. A typical tincture bottle is 30 milliliter, just under 1 fluid ounce. So a tincture bottle has one standard serving of alcohol, but at least 30 servings of cannabinoids,” she explained.
