Cannabis Tincture is an alcohol extract of medical marijuana. It is available in both an indica and a sativa based solution. Tincture of Cannabis has been made for over 150 years and in the past, the major pharmaceutical companies used to produce and market them.

Sativa: Third Eye & Humboldt Sweet Cheese
Indica: Granddaddy Purple & Romulan. Synergy Wellness still has a few bottles left from previous strains. Please contact us for availability.
During the growing process, organic nutrients are used to feed the plants. After harvest, the cannabis is dried and pulverized. At this point, a process of decarboxylation is applied, heating the cannabis to convert all the THCA to THC and converting the CBDA to CBD.
The dried cannabis is kept in an alcohol base for 7 weeks. Stored in a dark cool place as it brews, every day the brewing tincture is shaken and energized. 190 proof food grade grain alcohol is used to extract the cannabis cannabinoids: THC, CBD, CBN, CBT and CBC. Other beneficial cannabinoids are also extracted. We believe that these very small amounts of various cannabinoids are extremely valuable, both in their individual medicinal value as well as working together with the team of other cannabinoids. Hence, we produce a full plant extract containing all the components intact.
The final product comes in 1 ounce bottles. The recommended dose is 1-3 ml. Dosage will vary between patients, due to individual sensitivity. Typically, one oz will contain 15-30 doses. One dose usually last 4-6 hours and initial effects will be felt after 45-60 minutes. Each person will have to experiment a bit to get the right dosage to discover what dose works best for them. It is best to start off cautiously, taking about 1/2 of the anticipated dose. If you do not feel much, or any affect of the medication, increase the dose slightly the next scheduled time to take the medication. Keep increasing the dose When you get to the dose that feel too much, then lighten the dose a little bit. The tincture comes in bottles with an eye dropper dispenser, facilitating accurate measurement of the dosage. One to 3 full eye droppers is usually one dose. Some poeple take as little as 1-2 drops. Some take 5 ml. One squeeze of the dropper will put about 1 ml in the dropper tube, which will make the dropper 1/2 full. One ml = 20 drops. 5 ml = 1 tsp.
The tincture is taken orally. It is recommended to mix it with water, ginger tea or juice, just enough to dilute the 190 proof alcohol, so it does not burn the tongue. While it is best on an empty stomach, it can be taken after a meal also. If the THC is causing a problem with feeling intoxication, a little food in the stomach will reduce the high. Cannabis is a natural herb; it does not interfere with pharmaceutical medications and can be used in conjunction with other medicinal regimes.
