Pot Drops for Health – A Short Guide to CBD Tinctures

Published

CBD Tincture

You can take medical marijuana in many ways. While many people prefer smoking pot, eating solid or drinking liquid cannabis-edibles, others use CBD tinctures. This article aims to inform you about this form of medicinal weed for your health.

What are CBD Tinctures?

Strictly speaking, a “tincture” is an extract of a plant mixed with alcohol. Manufacturers produce CBD tinctures (or CBD drops) by steeping flowers or isolates of marijuana or hemp in high-proof grain alcohol and applying low heat on it for a long time. This process allows the potent compounds in cannabis to soak into the spirit, which is mostly boiled off. The end product is a liquid that performs the healing powers of CBD without the need of smoking or vaping. To enhance the taste of the tincture, producers add carrier oils and other flavoring ingredients, such as fruit essences.

In some products, CBD tinctures often refer to cannabidiol extracted from hemp or marijuana mixed with a carrier oil used as a nutritional supplement, and not a product that contains high-grade alcohol. In contrast, pure CBD oil is the liquid derived from cannabis plant without the carrier oils or flavors. If you doubt on whether you’ve bought a CBD tincture or oil, ask the manufacturer for the complete list of ingredients.

Why Use CBD Tinctures?

Doctors often prescribe tinctures for patients who need to take regular, measured dose of CBD as medication. Tinctures users can get nearly the same potency of CBD oil with additional flavor to make ingestion more comfortable for people who don’t want the taste and smell of pure CBD oil.

With CBD in tincture form, you can enjoy the multiple health benefits of the substance for a longer time because of their lengthy shelf-life compared to other cannabis edibles. They also recommend this form to consumers who want to take their dose on the go.

Benefits of CBD for Health

You might have read and heard much news about the medicinal wonders of CBD. Medical marijuana has attracted the attention of media outfits because of its long list of health benefits. Aside from providing relief from chronic and acute pain in different parts of the body, doctors and researchers attested to CBD’s potency in reducing symptoms of epileptic seizures and cancer.

Researchers were able to document the wonders of cannabidiol in protecting the brain and nerves against many diseases. A growing body of research backs cannabidiol’s powers in treating some problems in the nervous system such as glaucoma, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, and even other issues in mental health such as schizophrenia and PTSD. Patients with eating disorders like anorexia and bulimia can also benefit from adding CBD in their medication and diet.

Proper Use and Dosage of CBD Tinctures

Tinctures are supposed to be administered in tiny doses. You can buy them in small bottles with a built-in dropper. Others use an eye dropper. While taking too much will not lead to an overdose, CBD users rarely need huge doses for treating their medical condition or as a supplement.

If you can’t bear the bitterness of CBD, you can mix it with food and beverages. Many users add this substance to salads, soups, coffee, or tea. For fast results, you can drop tinctures underneath your tongue since the body absorbs the compound faster using this procedure than most methods.

Using tinctures is preferable for micro-dosing. This technique divides a full dose prescribed by your doctor into smaller portions that you take in different times throughout the day. For example, instead of ingesting a 20mg dose once a day, you drop four 5mg doses into your mouth during breakfast, lunch, dinner, and before bedtime.

With tinctures, you can get more accuracy and flexibility in taking your cannabidiol medications.

The State of Cannabis in Washington State: Things To Know in 2021

Published

on

The Pacific Northwest is well known for its beautifully lush landscapes, crisp apples, fresh air, and progressive lifestyle/health views. Being the only state named after a United States president(George Washington), Washington is a place many happily and willingly call home or their sanctuary.  

In terms of other well-knowns, Washington state was one of the first to legalize cannabis for recreational use nearly a decade ago (2012 to be exact). As long as you are 21 years old or older and reside in the state, you can privately partake in the consumption of cannabis without any legal ramifications. This has been an appeal to many across the country, with some actually moving to the state for this reason.

In 2021, and with the dawn of a new administration in the White House, marijuana looks to have a very bright few years ahead. We’ve already seen an emergence of pot stocks and hometown dispensaries budding up all around the United States and the rest of North America, and that only looks to continue into the near future.

If you’re in the mood to finally take the leap into using cannabis, now could be a great time to learn more about this wonderful plant and its many healing and rejuvenating properties. 

What is it used for mainly in 2021?

Cannabis was once thought only to be good for “getting high.” There has been a plethora of scientific research giving us a better understanding of this miracle plant. It has been used to treat Cancer, Epilepsy, Seizures, Glaucoma, PTSD, Multiple Sclerosis, Inflammation, and even Alzheimer’s disease. In 2021 after a rough 2020, many have been using it as a healthier way to indulge at home, protecting themselves from the ongoing pandemic. Instead of frequent alcohol consumption, there has been a larger shift towards the consumption of cannabis as it has been stated to be less harmful to vital organs like the heart and liver. Alcohol also creates a lot of inflammation within the body, whereas cannabis reportedly fights inflammation. 

Best places to buy it in 2021?

The best places to purchase your cannabis are from state-licensed retailers in Washington. Purchasing weed through private means(aka black-market) is still illegal and should be avoided at all costs. Make sure to do your due diligence when seeking reputable dispensaries as there are “pop-up shops” that claim being licensed but are not, and purchasing from them could result in a hefty fine or even jail time. 

Per WeedMaps, Medical marijuana patients may purchase and possess up to:

  • 3 ounces of marijuana, or 85 grams;
  • 48 ounces, or 1.36 kilograms of marijuana-infused products in solid form;
  • 1.69 gallons, or 6.4 liters of marijuana-infused products in liquid form, or; 
  • 21 grams of marijuana concentrate.

Washington state cannabis Legislation in 2021

As far as growing and cultivation of marijuana for personal use, this is still illegal. Washington cannabis laws are more liberal than other states, but there are still many restrictions, such as not being able to consume it in “public view”. The most notable push in the cannabis space in Washinton state is a bill for home cultivation.

Conclusion

Washington is a great place to visit and, for many, is one of the best places to call home due to its stance on cannabis consumption. With 2021 being a year of progression, it looks like the state of cannabis in Washington will only continue to shine.
