Tinctures are one of the best, most underrated delivery methods for cannabis. They provide a fast and efficient dosage of medicine with minimal effort.
Although tinctures date back well before the pre-prohibition era, they are an unfamiliar delivery method for most people. Tinctures are typically made by soaking the dried flowers of the female hemp plant (marijuana) in ethanol. The THC and other cannabinoids dissolve into the alcohol. Some preparations also extract some of the water-based plant products such as chlorophyll, resulting in a dark green or brown liquid.
