The last time I was at the medical marijuana dispensary, the budtender convinced me to try a tincture.
He told me to put a few drops under my tongue and hold it there for at least 45 seconds before swallowing.
Not only did I not like the way the saliva built up in my mouth from holding the tincture under my tongue, but I hated the flavoring they put in it. I could taste the marijuana and the odd flavor long after I used the tincture. I called the medical marijuana dispensary, and told them about the tincture, and the young woman I was talking to told me I could use it in Gummies. She said to use the entire bottle in a 1/2 batch of Gummies, and it should do the same thing as putting it under my tongue. Instead of using it in a 1/2 batch of Gummies, I put the entire bottle of medical marijuana in a full batch of Gummies. I couldn’t taste the tincture now, but it took longer to work when it was put in the Gummies. It took almost an hour and 1/2 for the medical marijuana to take effect and give me any sign it was working. When I finally felt the gradual effects of the marijuana coming on, I relaxed. Although it wasn’t the high I received when I put the tincture under my tongue, the results of it working as a painkiller were every bit as good. I don’t think I’ll buy tincture at the marijuana dispensary, but I’ll go back to my RSO.
