Every day in my office I see and speak with patients who have tried the sativa tinctures I have spoken about in prior blogs.
With some of the new and improved tinctures, patients are reporting that their daytime anxiety/depression is well managed with just a few “sprays” of tincture under their tongue. They never get buzzed, high or stoned. It is NOT that they could not use a few more sprays and get very stoned, it is just that they are using the tincture as their medicine.
These same patients tell me that in general, if they are smoking it is to kick back and relax – ?? recreational?? At the same time, they view the tincture administration as their medicine.
So, is it possible that perhaps cannabis for recreation might be smoked or vaped or eaten; but for controlled medicinal use “tincting” is the way to go.
We can get into an endless debate whether relaxing and “chilling” with smoked cannabis is a crime, recreational use or actually treating anxiety and depression – the hallmarks of our society??
