Tinctures are liquid extracts made from herbs (in our case, cannabis) that you take orally (by mouth – either under your tongue or in your cheek). This is called sublingual dosing. Because tinctures are taken directly under the tongue, they enter the bloodstream much more directly than any other means, offering you faster relief. Tinctures are also easy and convenient to use.
If you prefer the effects of traditional edibles but want to avoid the sugar or allergens of most cannabis edibles, ioVia Tinctures are a great option. Because they are vegan, odorless, and flavorless, you can add your desired dose to a warm beverage or food item to take advantage of the systemic/digestive uptake for a typically longer-lasting effect. *Note: it can take up to 2 hours to feel the effects using this method, and the effects can potentially be more intoxicating than the sublingual method. Start with a low dose and give yourself time to assess the effects before ingesting more.
