Are you ready for a taste of the least controversial method of consuming cannabis ever? Try a tincture. “Why would I want to do that,” you ask? Because tinctures have been described as the most underrated of all the pot products.
The Basic Science Of Tinctures
Additionally, it’s a good idea to keep the kitchen fan on to remove any combustible alcohol fumes. At the very least, make sure that you are in a well-ventilated area so those fumes don’t collect and ignite.
However, the delta-9-THC in your tincture will transform into 11-Hydroxy-THC when it passes through the liver of your gastrointestinal tract. And depending on your metabolism, this can take up to two hours or more to occur.
It’s important to remember that cannabis works differently for each person, so it’s important to try a few different strains and dosages to find out what works best for you.
Let’s start by looking at what a tincture is.
How To Use A Tincture
I also have a QWET Tincture, also known as a freezer tincture or ‘the Golden Dragon’.
When it comes to cannabis tinctures, the alcohol is used to extract the active ingredients, including cannabinoids like CBD and THC, and terpenes from the plant material.
The liquid pulls out the active compound in the plants, dissolving them and concentrating them.
Also, with all the posts about lecithin and it’s benefits to your end result, should I add lecithin to my Green Dragon?
They got over an 80% infusion rate at room temperature in 3 hours and speculate that using the ice dragon technique could yield even better results.
I would love some feedback on my method. The stuff helps, that’s all I know. Usually I’m using high CBD and very low THC herb, so there isn’t an easy way to tell if the dose is enough or too much. When I’ve used high THC bud, 1/2 a dropper full was enough to kick me in the butt…. One day at work I was in a lot of pain and used that much of the high THC tincture, I was desperate for relief. WELL…it was WAY too strong for me. I actually emailed my cubicle mates to keep an eye on me, as I was feeling like I’d pass out. Somehow I managed to sound human, but WOW…not for daytime use! hmm…maybe I should make some more of that…
I don’t know if you will actually get the as it is over 2 years after the original post, but I was wondering if you would be willing to send me your recipe for tincture for vaping. My email address is [email protected]
And yes, THC can be toxic for your pets, especially in high doses. I have seen some pretty unhappy dogs who accidentally ate their human’s goodies. CBD, on the other hand, appears to be handled very well. I know my pooch loves CBD treats. Fan leaves are a GREAT idea… thanks for that tip!
