Tinctures are liquid cannabis extractions that are typically applied under the tongue. Soaked in either oil or vegetable glycerin, cannabis tinctures were among the earliest forms of cannabis medicines prior to its prohibition in the United States. They tend to be less concentrated than other oil extracts, making them more appropriate for functional daytime use to aid mild symptoms, and stress relief. Patients attempting to remedy severe pain and other ailments may want to seek out more potent alternatives.
