The Many Potential Benefits of THC Tincture

Posted on June 4th, 2023 to Education by

Smoking and vaping are the most popular ways cannabis patients get THC into their system. However, THC tinctures have a long history in pre-prohibition alternative healing. Now that it’s easier for patients to try products with cannabis, products like THC tinctures are have become very popular.

While liquid extracts don’t offer the same immediacy or flavor as smokable cannabis, there are many potential benefits of THC tinctures. Indeed, for some medical cannabis patients, THC tinctures may be the only way to safely and effectively incorporate cannabis into their lives.

1. THC Tincture helps reduce anxiety

If you’re skeptical about trying out cannabis products for the first time, here’s something you might be unaware of. Your body naturally produces cannabis-like compounds called endocannabinoids to regulate your anxiety, fear, and stress responses.


Sometimes, the natural production of these endocannabinoids goes dry, and that’s where the therapeutic uses of cannabis come into play.

However, just like anxiety is different for every person, so is its treatment. When using THC tinctures to treat your anxiety, you might have to experiment a little to find the exact dose, product, and regimen that works for you.

When it comes to THC tinctures and anxiety, you might find that a little goes a long way. Cannabis is relaxing and offers a great therapeutic benefit when taken in small doses, but too much can have a reverse effect and add to your anxiety. If you have tried a cannabis product and seen your anxiety shoot up, it’s probably because you took too much.

This is precisely why THC tinctures are great for people with anxiety. You can measure the exact dose of liquid with an eyedropper to prevent taking too much, a benefit you don’t get when smoking or vaping cannabis.

Generally, we recommend starting with a dose of 2.5mg and gradually increasing the dose by another 1-2 milligrams until you feel optimal relief from your anxiety symptoms.

2. THC Tincture Relieving Pain

THC tinctures are commonly used to alleviate pain, discomfort, and inflammation. In fact, in states where it is legal, these herbal analgesics can be medically prescribed for arthritis pain, nerve pain, menstrual cramps, and more. However, you should always be mindful of how much you consume if you don’t want to get too much of a psycho active effect.

Essentially, the cannabinoids in the THC tincture dampen pain signals to your brain, giving you relief. If you want to use THC for pain relief without feeling too much of an effect at all, you can apply the tincture topically so that it absorbs into your skin and works to relieve pain.

3. Improving Sleep Quality

50-70 million Americans suffer from some type of sleeping disorder. Those are large numbers!

Getting some shut-eye is harder than it was back in the day, and the medical cannabis community vouches for THC tinctures as an effective cure for sleep disorders with little to no side effects.

Whether you’re having difficulty sleeping on a stressful day or your sleep schedule is all over the place in general, cannabis is an effective aid to help you restore your natural sleep cycle. Cannabis has pain-relieving properties also relieve people who can’t sleep because of anxiety or chronic pain.

When experimenting with canabis for better sleep, we recommend doing it when you have time to see how it makes you feel.

4. Doesn’t have any Harmful Side Effects

Cannabis is a psychoactive substance, so it has some side effects, whether you choose to smoke it or ingest the tincture form. However, the severity of these side effects is dose-dependent.

Anxiety  are the most common side effects you experience if you take too much THC, and this can be easily controlled by taking some CBD oil to counter the THC or by simply waiting for the feeling to wear off.


5. Long shelf-life and Flexibility

Tinctures have a long shelf life and can be stored for many months, as long as they’re kept in a cool dark place away from direct sunlight. And, be sure to keep your tincture bottles tightly capped, so the liquid doesn’t evaporate. Always shake the bottle well before use because, like other liquid solutions, separation can occur over time.

The most popular THC tincture consumption method is putting a few drops under the tongue, as this method gives the fastest relief.
