Through this conversation I had mentioned that I use tinctures during the day at work as a way of medicating without the scrutiny. Holly was kind enough to send me some samples to try (after they were able to verify my medical marijuana recommendation).

Countless medical marijuana patients are in high spirits to learn of cannabis tinctures. A tincture is an alcohol-based liquid mixture. It is like a concentrated extract. At present there are tinctures of cannabis made with alcohol, oil or glycerin. It is a very effective way to medicate. Drops of the tincture are placed under the tongue (sublingually) and the medication passes through the blood vessels and enters the bloodstream. You will feel the onset of effects in about 5 – 15 minutes with the peak effect at about 30 minutes after taking the medication. For many patients, the effects are similar to inhaled cannabis.
The benefits of using a tincture of cannabis:
* no irritating smoke
* it is fast-acting
* no equipment except the bottle and the eyedropper
* no smell
* can be used discreetly.
