As the legality of marijuana continues to spread, methods for consuming it will continue to grow. Liquid THC can be an effective alternative to smoking and dabbing. It can be a discreet way to get the effects you need without all the equipment and obvious signs that burning leaves behind.
At the most extreme, there is the potential for a really bad trip. Because the THC is not tempered by CBD and other compounds, debilitating anxiety or paranoia can occur with liquid THC. In addition, the high concentration of THC has been known to induce vomiting and even unconsciousness. And when we say unconsciousness, we’re not talking about sleep.
Regardless of which method you choose, the basic production principles remain the same. During the steeping or cooking process, the cannabinoids are released from the cannabis plant. These free cannabinoids are then absorbed by the alcohol. Finally, the plant matter is discarded. The resultant tincture is a powerful, concentrated liquid that is very much greater than the sum of its parts. Liquid THC has been tested up to 90% delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) content compared to 50% for oils, waxes, and shatters, and 12-25% for bud that’s smoked.
What Are The Dangers Of Liquid THC?
The onset of effects with liquid THC depend on the way it is consumed. Taken under the tongue, effects can manifest in 15-45 minutes and reach their peak at about 90 minutes. Taken with food, effects take longer to manifest but can last from 2-4 hours.
You can also store your tincture in a small spray bottle and administer the liquid THC by squirting it in your mouth like breath spray. However you choose to store your tincture, be sure to NEVER drip it into your eyes. It should always be taken under the tongue.
While alcohol is the most common liquid used to make tinctures, oils, vinegars, and glycerins can also be used. In addition, different types of alcohols can be used in the creation of a tincture including, but certainly not limited to, vodka, brandy, and ethanol.
Tinctures are often stored in a dropper or small pump spray bottle. This helps with consumption and dosage.
We like to think there is a tincture for everyone. Whether you’re looking for pain relief, reduced inflammation, or simply seeking a product to provide relaxation, there’s an oil with just the right cannabinoids for that. Cannabinoids like THC, CBD, and even their pre-cursors THCA and CBDA! Here’s a quick rundown of what each can do.
This wonderful tincture is made by Cosmic View, one of the many women-owned companies we carry. This tincture has a CBD-rich ratio of 3:1, making it ideal for daytime use for work or simple tasks. What we love most about this tincture is its ability to make the body feel whole. CBD harmoniously regulates serotonin levels, which helps with appetite, mood swings, and anxiety.
#1: 3:1 CBDA-Rich Tincture – Awakened
Now, this tincture packs a punch, which is why it’s one of our favorite products at The Higher Path. It is a high-THC tincture from Proof. There’s around 30 mg per 0.5ml serving (that’s half the dropper) If you’re someone who has built up a strong tolerance to edibles and is looking to up your game, trying this tincture is a great place to start. It is a blissful, yet focused high, perfect for getting a great deal of work done. Its been known to enhance one’s creativity, offering new ideas and new takes on projects you may be putting off.
Another awesome aspect we love; Cosmic View makes this tincture with sustainably grown cannabis, using the best parts of the flower to offer the full-spectrum effect. They also use 100% pure holistic ingredients for this tincture.
For anyone looking for a very rich-CBD product, look no further because this 40:1 Care By Design tincture is the highest we have (well that’s only the case if you don’t have a medical card). A staggering 32mg of CBD per serving and contains less than 1 mg of THC per serving. What are some of the benefits that come with such a high amount of CBD? First, so much CBD is exceptionally relaxing for our bodies! CBD is linked to our CB2 receptors, which are located all around our immune system. This includes your arms, legs, gut, and back. When the CBD binds to CB2 receptors, it calms the immune system down, creating a very relaxing feeling without the psychotropic effects.
Our Releaf tinctures provide a flexible option for whole body comfort. One of the speediest ways to feel the benefits of cannabinoids, this fast-acting concentrated liquid offers strong relief from pain and inflammation. Its effects are felt throughout the entire body within fifteen minutes, and dosage can be customized based on personal preference to last over three hours. Add it as an earthy, rich ingredient in craft mocktails and smoothies, or drop it sublingually underneath the tongue. Our tincture stands out because it’s made with MCT oil, which helps your body metabolize the cannabinoids quicker.
