Cannabis can also be made into tinctures and tonics, which are then added to food and liquids, applied on the skin, or consumed directly in small amounts or by placing drops under the tongue.
Takoma Wellness Center tinctures are made by steeping cannabis in alcohol over a slow heat for several hours, before allowing it to cool. Once it is finely strained, the liquid that remains contains the cannabinoids that produce the needed medical relief. Typical dosage of marijuana tinctures is between 1-3 drops to no more than 2 full droppers. As with the edibles, it is best to start very slow and use only a small portion until relief from symptoms is achieved.
