To feel the immediacy of the cannabis effect, but without inhaling toxic substances derived from combustion, one of the most effective options is the use of CBD Tincture.
Although CBD itself is not harmful to the lungs, there are toxic substances in the smoke that is produced by combustion. To avoid this, some medical patients -especially asthmatics- prefer to consume food, be it food or drink, made from cannabis. But the main drawback is that the effect takes at least 40 minutes to be felt. The solution may be vaporizers, but if they are not to your liking, read on.
Faced with these options, another possibility arises: the CBD tincture. It has immediate effect and is a clean way of consumption. In addition, it allows the qualities of cannabinoids to be preserved intact since it is made from alcohol.
What is CBD Tincture used for?
CBD Tincture has basically the same medicinal applications as Cannabis administered in other ways, only because of its composition the tincture can also be absorbed through the skin.
Some of its most common therapeutic uses are for:
- relieve pain, such as premenstrual or migraines,
- eliminate nausea, especially in chemotherapy patients,
- treat cramps, tensions and muscle spasms,
- lower blood pressure,
- treat psoriasis, eczema and rashes,
- relieve pain from arthritis or rheumatism,
- treat tendinitis,
- relieve torticollis,
- treat asthma,
- calm anxiety, depression or insomnia,
- stimulate appetite.
How is CBD Tincture consumed?
There are different ways to ingest the tincture. For the effect to be immediate, use a dropper and put a few drops under the tongue. From there it is quickly absorbed into the bloodstream. The effect is felt in moments, and it is very easy to adjust the dose, adding a few more drops if necessary.
The disadvantage of this method is that the T has a bitter taste that can be somewhat unpleasant, and for this reason many choose to add essences and flavors to their tinctures.
Another way to consume the tincture is to dissolve it in another food. Since heat activates CBD/THC, a good option is to put a few drops of the tincture in a tea, coffee or infusion, sweet if possible.
The tincture can also be vaporized, so that the CBD/THC is activated and inhaled without combustion and, therefore, generating waste that ends up in the lungs.
Finally, the Cannabis tincture can also be used topically, that is, by applying it to the skin in the area to be treated. For example, cannabis tincture can be applied to sore or inflamed areas of the body, to soothe burns and insect bites, or to treat skin problems.
