Tinctures are one of the oldest methods of consuming cannabis. They were the most common type of cannabis medicine in the United States before prohibition began in 1937.
Like any other herbal tincture, a cannabis tincture is simply a concentrated liquid form of the plant. The main benefit is that you can take this medicine without smoking it, which is taxing on the lungs.
PLEASE NOTE: Some compounds in cannabis are only activated with heat. If you would like this, you must decarboxylate your product prior to making your tincture.
