Many cannabis products exist on the market today that provide significant relief without smoking such as tinctures. Tinctures are essentially liquid concentrates made from extractions of the cannabis plant (usually flowers and trim leaves are included). Often referred to as “whole plant extracts,” tinctures are taken by mouth and are easy to administer, especially for children who may use cannabis medicine for seizures.
Because tincures are taken orally, they enter the bloodstream quickly. Dosing is easily achieved by the number of drops a patient places under the tongue, allowing cannabis medicine to be rapidly absorbed into the arterial system and quickly transported to the brain and body.
