Tinctures, as any health-nut can tell you, are medicines made by extracting organic elements with alcohol. In short, they are infused liquids. Like ingestible oils and edibles, you consume a cannabis tincture orally. But tinctures have one major advantage over other edibles.
And that’s that the cannabinoids infused in the liquid enter your bloodstream immediately. This means no anxious waiting for the dose to kick in. It also means it’s easier for people to dial in the best dose for them. In fact, tinctures come in a wide variety of concentrations and are often flavored to make them tastier. These factors make tinctures a favorite among medical cannabis patients.
Topicals And Creams
You don’t always have to put cannabis in your body to obtain its wonderful effects. Instead, try putting it on your body. You won’t get stoned like you would from smoking weed or using the other methods.
But you will experience potent, local sensations wherever you spread your cannabis topical. Cannabis topicals like creams and ointments increase circulation and act as a subtle numbing agent. That’s what makes cannabis topicals an ideal choice for local pain relief and treating swollen muscles. Use especially if you want to avoid getting high.
