Cannabis tinctures are designed to address the problems of rapid medicine delivery and consistent dosing. Cannabis tinctures are essentially alcohol extractions of the whole cannabis plants. The cannabis tinctures are typically made by soaking the dried flowers of the female cannabis plant (marijuana) in solvent and then evaporating the solvent. The tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and other cannabinoids like CBD and the cannabis terpenes dissolve into the alcohol. Most cannabis tinctures are made to be used under the tongue or sublingually.
