How Do I Consume Tincture?
A tincture is essentially a liquid form of cannabis that comes in a dropper bottle. Unscrew the child-safety cap, then fill the pipette with the appropriate amount of liquid for your dose by squeezing the black bulb while the glass pipette is submerged in the tincture bottle. Place the dropper assembly (bulb plus attached pipette) near your mouth and squeeze the bulb to release the liquid under your tongue. We generally recommend patients hold the liquid under their tongue for approximately 3 seconds to partially absorb through their mucosal membrane, then swallow. Absorbing through the mucosal membrane allows for faster absorption and also bypasses some of the liver during digestion. Swallowing allows for some tincture to hit the receptors in your mouth, throat, esophagus all the way down that the absorbed liquid missed.
