Marijuana Tinctures: Your Complete Guide

Are you ready for a taste of the least controversial method of consuming cannabis ever? Try a tincture. “Why would I want to do that,” you ask? Because tinctures have been described as the most underrated of all the pot products.

They’re described as such because there aren’t as many fun — and potentially punishable — reefer rituals associated with their use. But that doesn’t mean that they’re somehow second-rate.

Tinctures are arguably underutilized compared to raw flowers, joints , blunts , bongs , edibles , and dabs even though they work just as well…or sometimes even better.

Yep, you read that right. For many people, tinctures often work better than every other method of cannabis consumption, including cream , pills , gummies , and dissolvable strips . It really depends on what you need from your marijuana and how you prefer to take it.

In this article, the experts at Honest Marijuana tell you everything you need to know about marijuana tinctures. Along the way, we’ll discuss:

  • A brief history of the marijuana tincture
  • The basic science of tinctures
  • The benefits of marijuana tincture
  • The side effects of marijuana tincture
  • How to take a marijuana tincture
  • The economics of marijuana tincture
  • How to make a marijuana tincture

We’ll also share three different tried-and-true marijuana tincture recipes for you to experiment with at home. Before we get to that, though, let’s delve briefly into the history of marijuana tinctures.

Marijuana Tincture Tales

In spite of how novel they may seem to so many cannabis consumers, tinctures are really nothing new. In fact, tincture was the primary form of cannabis medicine until it was banned in 1937 .

Source: AntiqueCannabisBook.com

You may not have heard about marijuana tinctures yet because an eyedropper full of medicine just doesn’t have the same stigma as edibles or dabbing .

You don’t need a creme brulee blowtorch in order to medicate with a tincture, which is why tinctures don’t have any derogatory mainstream media monikers like “the crack of cannabis.” You’re also much less likely to overdose or “overdowd” on a cannabis tincture than you are with a marijuana edible for reasons we’ll explain later in this post.

And lest you wonder what “overdowd” means, it’s a slang portmanteau of the words “over” (as in overdose) and “dowd” (the last name of journalist Maureen Dowd). Some years ago, while writing a piece on the nascent marijuana industry in Colorado, Ms. Dowd consumed too much of a cannabis-infused candy bar — despite prior warnings — and went on a really bad trip.

“I became convinced that I had died and no one was telling me,” Ms. Dowd wrote in her column for the New York Times. This event earned her the dubious honor of having a semi-derogatory, completely-mocking word “named” after her. But enough of the history lesson. Let’s get back to the topic at hand.

Tinctures have been described as the moonshine of marijuana because of how they are made. However, making marijuana tincture takes up much less space and is significantly less likely to cause an explosion than a traditional moonshine still.

Source: wrcbtv.com

Making tinctures is much less dangerous (and therefore less controversial) than making cannabis concentrates with butane, for example. Your chances of creating an explosion that will destroy your entire house are non-existent with most tincture making.

Now that you know a few facts about marijuana tinctures, let’s investigate the science behind what makes a tincture a tincture.

The Basic Science Of Tinctures

We’re not going to get too involved in the science of tinctures, but we will touch on a few key scientific facts that will help you understand tinctures better.

Chemical Composition

A tincture is most often an alcoholic extract of plant material (although animal material can also be used) with an ethanol percentage of between 25 and 60%. This equates to a solution that is between 50 and 120 proof, although sometimes the alcohol concentration can get as high as 90% (180 proof) in some tinctures.

Alcohol (ethanol) is the most common solvent because it’s effective at breaking down both acidic and basic components of the plant matter. In the case of a cannabis tincture, that means that more of the good-for-your cannabinoids will wind up in your little dropper bottle.

Other solvents like vinegar and glycerin (a.k.a. glycerol) can be used to create a tincture for internal consumption, but they’re not as effective at extracting all the chemicals from the original plant matter.

Production

The process of making a tincture is very much like dissolving sugar in water or making Kool-Aid. The solids (the sugar or the Kool-Aid mix) break down and liquefy in the water, transferring their chemical makeup (sweetness) into the resultant solution.

The same thing happens when making a tincture — only the ingredients change. The alcohol dissolves the plant matter and all the chemicals it contains (trichomes, cannabinoids, oils, terpenes, and others). Those chemicals are then suspended in a solution (much like Kool-Aid mix in water) that can be ingested or administered under the tongue.

The Benefits Of Marijuana Tincture

Marijuana tinctures offer a long list of benefits (many of which we’ll discuss throughout this article). To give you an idea just how great marijuana tincture is, here are a few of the benefits you can enjoy whether you take a THC tincture for pleasure or a CBD tincture to relieve pain:

  • You feel the effects quickly
  • You can easily control the amount of tincture you take
  • Marijuana tinctures are discreet (meaning you don’t have to worry about standing out)
  • Tinctures are safe
  • Tinctures have a long shelf life when stored properly

Obviously, you would only use a THC tincture to achieve a psychoactive high (although THC does have some pain-fighting properties). But if you use a CBD tincture, the benefits multiply. That’s because a CBD tincture can be used to treat:

  • Low appetite
  • Insomnia
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Hyperglycemia (high blood sugar)
  • Inflammation
  • Psoriasis
  • Chronic pain
  • Artery blockage
  • Psychosis
  • Bacterial growth
  • Anxiety
  • Cancer cell growth
  • Convulsions
  • Bone degeneration
  • Seizures
  • Muscle spasms

Couple the above benefits with the safe, fast-acting, easy-to-dose nature of the tincture itself, and you’ve got a potent recipe for medical relief of the toughest symptoms.

Does Marijuana Tincture Cause Side Effects?

The short answer is: It depends. If you’re taking a THC tincture, then, yes, you’re going to get the same side effects you would get if you smoked a doobie (paranoia, munchies, etc.).

If you’re taking a CBD tincture, the side effects are less obvious. CBD does cause dry mouth, but many feel that it’s a small price to pay for all the medical benefits that the cannabinoid has to offer.

The only other side effect of note is that CBD decreases your liver’s ability to process other drugs. That’s not a problem if you replace one medication with a CBD medication.

But if you take a CBD medication and something like a heart medication, the CBD will interfere with the effectiveness of the heart medication. That’s bad. Because of the potential interactions, always consult a doctor adding CBD to your daily routine.

Taking Marijuana Tinctures

One of the main benefits of a tincture is that it’s very easy to take. Drops of tincture solution are squeezed out through an eyedropper syringe under your tongue. There, the solution is left to be absorbed (not swallowed) into your bloodstream through a process called osmosis.

Osmosis occurs when molecules of a solvent (the ethanol and all the cannabis chemical it contains) pass through a semipermeable membrane (the tissue under your tongue) from a less concentrated solution into a more concentrated one on the other side in order to equalize the concentrations on both sides of the membrane.

Source: Silver-Health.co.uk

The Benefits Of Sublingual Administration

The major advantage of the sublingual administration method is that the medicine is rapidly absorbed through the sublingual artery, your body’s main blood supply to your tongue. This artery arises from the external carotid artery, which, in turn, is close to the internal carotid artery. This allows the medicine to quickly reach your brain.

Additionally, the tincture doesn’t come in contact with the acids in your stomach like other edibles do. That fact alone serves to keep many of the beneficial chemicals in your cannabis tincture more complete and readily available for use in your body.

Sublingual absorption effectively removes a step — digestion — that can have slight but destructive consequences to the chemical makeup of the cannabis you put into your body.

Are Marijuana Tinctures Right For You?

The process of osmosis through the sublingual artery is ideal for patients suffering from pain due to gastrointestinal difficulties such as ulcers, hyperactive gut, coeliac disease, and other digestion issues that might make an edible less palatable.

Cannabis smoke is in no way conclusively linked to any kind of cancer, but sublingual ingestion of cannabis tinctures is, of course, ideal for anyone who may be concerned about the perceived health risks of inhaling smoke of any kind into their lungs.

Tinctures are also ideal for anyone who may be too sick, too old, or too young (like Charlotte Figi was) to properly smoke or even vaporize cannabis. Tinctures allow people of all ages to realize the beneficial health effects that the cannabis plant has to offer.

Tinctures are also well-regarded by seasoned stoners as an effective recreational high that you can stealthily enjoy in most social situations without drawing the same attention to yourself that you would if you lit a massive blunt in the middle of a crowd.

It’s a proven fact that the smell of cannabis smoke can, and often will, draw a lot of attention. And depending on where you are, that could be a good thing or a bad thing.

Tinctures draw none of this attention. All it takes is two or three drops under your tongue — a process that takes less than 20 seconds — to achieve much the same high as smoking a joint. No muss. No fuss. No telltale smell. Just the psychoactive high or the medicinal benefits you crave.

Source: BangorDailyNews.com

When Will You Feel The Effects?

The onset of the euphoric or medicinal effects of a tincture will kick in just a little bit slower than they would if you were smoking, but much faster than they would from an edible of the same strain of weed. You’ll feel the effects of two to three drops under your tongue within about 15 minutes.

This is why tinctures are infinitely superior to edibles in terms of the process of trial and error by which you determine the right amount of cannabis that your unique endocannabinoid system requires in order to feel optimal.

The more scientific name for this “try-and-see” practice is titration . You’ll often hear this term bandied around by those in the know because it’s easier to say than, “the process of trial and error by which you determine the right amount of cannabis that your unique endocannabinoid system requires in order to feel optimal.”

See what we mean? Why say 26 words when you can say just one and mean the same thing? Start using the word titration now so you at least sound like you know what you’re talking about.

Source: YouTube.com

To Swallow Or Not To Swallow?

When administering these drops of canna-goodness, it’s important to remember NOT to swallow your tincture if you want the full benefits of sublingual absorption. You can , of course, swallow your tincture, or even add it to tea , juice or food like many patients do. Nothing bad will happen.

However, the delta-9-THC in your tincture will transform into 11-Hydroxy-THC when it passes through the liver of your gastrointestinal tract. And depending on your metabolism, this can take up to two hours or more to occur.

That means that you’ll have to wait at least two hours to feel the effects. On top of that, they might be slightly different because of the presence of 11-Hydroxy-THC.

According to The National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws (NORML), ingested 11-Hydroxy-THC can be felt up to four to five times stronger than inhaled Delta-9-THC. But, according to Jay R. Cavanaugh, Ph.D., it can take four to 10 times as much oral cannabis in order to feel the same effects.

Source: patients4medicalmarijuana.wordpress.com

So again, remember not to swallow or the tincture will most likely take much longer to be effective. Just let the tincture solution dissolve under your tongue for about 30 seconds.

It’s also important to remember that you are also consuming alcohol — albeit a tiny amount — when you administer a tincture. In addition to that alcohol, your tincture will likely contain about 60% THC . That’s a lot!

The combination of alcohol and THC can pack a hefty punch, so start slow with your tincture titration. Get a feel for the potency of your medication and then gradually increase your dosage.

Recommended Dosing

We suggest starting with two or three drops at a time. Err on the side of caution and start with two drops (or less) if you’re new to cannabis consumption. After you administer your drops, wait at least an hour and a half before consuming more.

This gives the chemicals in the tincture time to spread throughout your body and gives your body time to fully process the cannabinoids.

After an hour and a half, you should know for sure how the amount of tincture you took will impact your body and mind. Until you gain some experience with tincture titration, we recommend waiting another hour and a half before trying another does.

This will give your body time to flush its system so you’re not stacking new THC (or CBD) on top of old THC.

The Economics Of Marijuana Tinctures

Tinctures are very economical . A small bottle of about 100 drops of marijuana tincture typically costs $20. If you take two drops at a time, that equates to 50 doses. At three drops, the total doses goes down to about 33.

That said, for the price you pay and the total amount of tincture you can squeeze out of the bottle, you’ll only be paying $0.40 to $0.60 per dose.

That’s awesome when you consider that your average, run-of-the-mill joint costs between $3.50 and $5.00. Plus, tinctures can be made at home, and you can make fairly large batches on a relatively small budget if you learn the basics of homemade brewing.

A Bit About Ingredients

As mentioned, you can make marijuana tinctures out of grain alcohol or glycerin, but high-proof alcohol like Everclear is the most common solvent and is the easiest to use.

Tetrahydrocannabinol ( THC ) exists as tetrahydrocannabinolic acid (THCA) until it is decarboxylated, usually with heat. The nice thing about the extraction process is that the alcohol bath dissolves the THCA, decarboxylates it into THC , and preserves the resultant material so that it won’t spoil. Alcohol does all three of these things at the same time…all without heat.

So now that we’ve discussed the basic science behind the tincture and we’ve seen how easy they are to take and to make, let’s get specific with some easy, do-it-yourself recipes for making delicious cannabis-infused tinctures.

How To Make Marijuana Tincture

In this section, we’ll focus on the three basic methods for making marijuana tincture:

  • Cold
  • Warm
  • Hot (a.k.a. Green Dragon)

So grab some ganja and a bottle of your favorite high-proof alcohol and let’s get started!

The Cold Method

The cold method is the easiest way to brew marijuana tinctures because it doesn’t involve any cooking. All you have to do is mix the ingredients together and set it aside to brew. Here’s how to do it.

First, simply break your cannabis up into some smaller pieces and place it in a glass mason jar. You can use as much or as little marijuana as you like to strain into your tincture. Just make sure that the bud you use is dry. Fresh, moist weed just doesn’t make for good tinctures.

The next step is to pour in enough ethyl alcohol to keep the plant material covered. We suggest Everclear, but you can use other high-proof alcohols if you prefer. You can expect to use approximately one gram of marijuana per one fluid ounce of ethyl alcohol. That said, the weed-to-alcohol ratio doesn’t have to be exact. Just make sure the marijuana is covered.

After you’ve mixed the ingredients in a jar, screw the lid on, shake it vigorously for a minute or two, then store the concoction in your freezer. The jar should stay there for up to five days.

Don’t worry, the jar won’t break or shatter due to the expansion that occurs when liquids solidify. Alcohol has a much lower freezing point than water and will remain in the liquid state throughout this process.

Once or twice a day for those five days, take the jar out of the freezer and give it a good shake. Over time, you’ll see the plant matter start to dissolve.

After roughly five days of storage in the freezer and multiple shakes every day, you’ve reached the end of the process. Now just strain the tincture through a cheesecloth, metal tea strainer, or silk screen into a bowl. Dispose of the leftover solid plant material, and pour the liquid tincture into a small, dark dropper bottle or two. It really is that simple!

The Warm Method

The warm or traditional method of making tinctures is identical to the cold method but without the freezer. Mix the ingredients in a mason jar the same as you did in the cold method. Then just leave the mason jar filled with weed and alcohol in a cool, dry place out of the sun for 30 to 60 days.

After those 30 to 60 days have elapsed, separate the solid material from the liquid by straining and then distribute the tincture into dropper bottles. Yes, this method does take substantially longer than the cold method and the hot method, but it doesn’t require any interaction on your part after the jar has been sealed. The saying, “Make on the new moon; strain on the full moon,” is why some people call tinctures the moonshine of marijuana.

If you choose this method, we suggest starting a new batch every two to four weeks. Depending on how much you make at one time, staggering the brew times will ensure that you have one tincture approaching readiness while you consume the other. That way, you’re never without enough tincture to get you through the month.

The Hot Method

The hot method, or Green Dragon method, is the quickest way to whip up a batch of cannabis tincture. It does require a bit of extra equipment and constant vigilance (so you don’t set the alcohol on fire), but you’ll reduce the brew time considerably.

To begin, chop your cannabis flower up as finely as you can. Place it on a cookie sheet in the oven at 325°F for about five minutes, or until your entire home begins to smell like weed. Mix your baked bud with high proof alcohol in a mason jar just like you did in the cold and warm methods.

Place the opened mason jar in a pan and add about one inch of water around the mason jar. Don’t put any water in the mason jar or you’ll ruin your tincture. Bring the water to a boil and then simmer the uncovered mason jar until the temp reaches 165°F. Obviously, then, you’ll need a candy or cooking thermometer for this method.

The alcohol/weed mixture shouldn’t boil at 165°F, so you don’t have to worry about that. If the alcohol does boil, the temperature is too high. Just turn down the heat of the water bath and continue.

Additionally, it’s a good idea to keep the kitchen fan on to remove any combustible alcohol fumes. At the very least, make sure that you are in a well-ventilated area so those fumes don’t collect and ignite.

When your brew has reached 165°F, remove the jar from the water bath using pot holders (it will be hot!), and set it aside to cool. When the jar is cool enough to handle with your bare hands, strain the tincture into a new bowl to separate the leftover plant matter from the liquid. Let the liquid cool some more and then distribute it into dropper bottles.

You can also invest in a custom Magical Butter cannabis processor to make hot-method tinctures. Simply place the weed and alcohol in the Magical Butter machine, push the tincture button, and your tincture will be ready to strain with a custom Magical Butter bag in 4 hours. This removes the danger of combustion and the constant vigilance but significantly lengthens the brew time.

Lastly, you can combine 5.5 grams of baked, decarboxylated cannabis with 2 ounces of high USP Food-grade glycerine into a sealable mason jar and then let it cook on top of a washcloth in a few inches of water in a crockpot on the low setting for 18-24 hours.

Let the mixture cool for about 20 minutes, then strain over a cheesecloth and use your dropper to transfer over to a tincture bottle.

Taking All The Tincture In

Tinctures were an effective time-honored weed tradition in this country and across the globe long before prohibition made it harder for us to get our medicine. They’re making a comeback in the modern cannabis community because of how much more effective they are than edibles in terms of providing adequate, titrated doses of cannabis for new patients.

Remember to let your tincture drops absorb for about 30 seconds under your tongue into your sublingual artery, which should result in a good body high in about 15 minutes.

Tinctures are relatively cheap , and you can find them at any dispensary. Tinctures are very easy to make as well. The traditional, warm method will take you about a month to make. The hot dragon method is far and away the fastest way to make and take a tincture.

We suggest trying the cold method first since it involves the least amount of effort and wait time before you can taste your first homemade tincture. Enjoy!

60 minutes colorado weed

The marijuana effect

It’s been a year since Colorado became the first state to legalize recreational pot, Bill Whitaker checks in

  • 2015 Jan 11
  • Correspondent Bill Whitaker
  • Facebook
  • Twitter
  • Reddit
  • Flipboard
This video is available on CBS All Access

Update: According to new data released by Colorado and analyzed by the Marijuana Policy Group, Colorado’s recreational dispensaries are estimated to ring up $295 million in sales and $51 million in tax revenue in 2014.

The following script is from “Colorado Pot” which aired on Jan. 11, 2015. Bill Whitaker is the correspondent. Marc Lieberman, producer.

Visit Colorado these days and you can smell change in the air. It’s the scent of legal marijuana for recreational use. If you’re a resident 21 or older, you can walk in to a state-licensed store and buy up to an ounce of pot. Tourists are limited to a quarter ounce.

Colorado has allowed medical marijuana since 2001. But in 2012, voters amended the state constitution to allow recreational pot – and gave the government one year to make it work. Colorado’s governor calls it the most ambitious social experiment of the 21st century. Three other states also have approved recreational pot. But none has gone further or faster into the legal retail weed business than Colorado. The experiment just hit the one year mark and we wanted to know how it’s going. So we headed to Denver, the epicenter of a marijuana industry that’s now in full bloom.

Denver skyline CBS News

Welcome to the Mile High City where marijuana, long a symbol of the counterculture, now is just a part of everyday culture. It’s a Thursday night in downtown Denver and we were invited to a marijuana food and wine-pairing catering to young professionals. You might expect to see the band toking up, but here everybody is.

The food is sprinkled with marijuana, the wine infused with a strain called Killer Queen. Budtender Leo Dunaev selected it for the evening.

Leo Dunaev: Because of the mellowness of the strain there isn’t any kind of anxiety attached to it so that’s why we have such a crowd of happy and fantastic people. And what we’re doing there, with that machine, is it creates smoke that is cooled to 10 degrees. And that smoke is then blown into this glass. And that allows the wine to open up and really bring in the fruit forward qualities of it.

Those who might remember pot from the 70s – the marijuana grown and sold in Colorado today is up to 10 times stronger. There’s a healthy appetite for The Rocky Mountain high and no shortage of stores to supply the demand. There’s the corner store in Denver. a high-end boutique in Aspen right around the corner from Prada and Gucci. Colorado has licensed more than 300 recreational dispensaries so far, ringing up an estimated $288 million in sales, $37 million in tax revenue.

Bill Whitaker and Meg Sanders CBS News

Bill Whitaker: This is a lot of pot. This is industrial scale.

Meg Sanders: It is.

Bill Whitaker: How many rooms like this do you have?

Meg Sanders: When we’re fully finished with our construction, we’ll have 12 like this.

Meg Sanders is a new breed of cannabis CEO, driven to push marijuana into the mainstream. A suburban mother of two, she left a private equity firm to run Mindful, a chain of four retail stores that sells recreational and medicinal pot.

Bill Whitaker: All of this is legal. That’s just mind-blowing.

Meg Sanders: It is.

Bill Whitaker: Meg, did you ever think you would be here doing this?

Meg Sanders: No, never in a million years. I was working in a small financial office, and there just wasn’t a lot of upward growth. And what better opportunity than to jump into a fledgling industry–something that we’ll never see again in our lifetime.

Her 44,000 square-foot marijuana factory is cutting edge. Automated water and nutrient systems feed the plants. Lighting mimics the seasons so plants can be harvested year round – all this in a warehouse right across the street from a Denver police station. Sixty Mindful employees cultivate, trim, and package up to 500 pounds of marijuana every month.

Bill Whitaker: This is not somebody’s back yard. This is not some stoner’s basement. This is a big business.

Meg Sanders: This is industrial agriculture. Absolutely. Commercial grow right here.

Which is why she recruited Phillip Hague, known in the trade as a master grower. He used to cultivate flowers on an industrial scale in Texas. But his true passion is pot.

Bill Whitaker: What do you bring to the table here?

Phillip Hague: Efficiencies on the grow side. I treat this building more like a large-scale tomato greenhouse than your average cannabis grow.

Bill Whitaker: But, these ain’t tomatoes.

Phillip Hague: These are definitely not tomatoes. It’s a very specialized plant.

Bill Whitaker: And you are personally familiar with your wares?

Phillip Hague: Most definitely. (laugh) Yes, sir.

All of this still is illegal at the federal level. The Justice Department is watching closely. The feds say they won’t intervene as long as Colorado’s recreational pot doesn’t fall into the hands of kids or criminals or cross state lines. With marijuana’s growing acceptance in Colorado, Sanders says she’s comfortable as a cannabis capitalist.

Meg Sanders: I have a massive engineering feat for you.

Alijah Smith: All right.

Her 23-year-old son Alijah works with her at Mindful. She says parents at her daughter’s middle school seem more curious than critical of her business.

Bill Whitaker: Do you have any concerns that your job is sending the wrong signal to your 13-year-old daughter?

Meg Sanders: I’m not concerned about that.

Bill Whitaker: At all?

Meg Sanders: I’m not. This isn’t carte blanche, “Oh, because I work here, everybody should have access to it. And that includes her.” We have very good conversations about it. She knows. She knows.

Bill Whitaker: I mean, you say you’re a business person. I think some parents would look at this and say, “She’s just peddling drugs.”

Meg Sanders: I can tell you that the drug dealer, illegal drug dealer on the corner in any state in this nation isn’t carding, isn’t checking your ID, isn’t making sure you have a medical marijuana card or you’re over 21. This industry does it every day, the stats show it. We’ve done a phenomenal job.

Mindful expects to rake in $18 million this year, but it’s not easy money. Colorado requires every plant grown by a licensed operator to be tracked from seed to sale. Each one has a barcoded radio frequency ID tag and is logged into a statewide database. Cameras watch it all. The goal is to keep every bud and bit off the black market.

Greenwood Village Police Chief John Jackson isn’t sold.

John Jackson: Law enforcement is really trying to do the right thing here. It’s different. And it’s requiring a mind change or shift on our part.

Jackson is president of the Colorado Association of Chiefs of Police. He says there’s still illegal pot on the streets from underground dealers who don’t have to levy 28 percent in state taxes.

John Jackson: There’s a common belief that by legalizing it, you will get rid of the black market. I can resoundly say that the black market is alive and doing well.

Bill Whitaker: It’s still cheaper to buy it from the dealer on the street than to buy it in the store?

John Jackson: Certainly. You know, we’ve created an entire industry here. And I’m gonna be honest with you. There are some very responsible people that are involved. And it’s like anything else in society. You’ve got a few people that are really making it hard for the others, and maybe use Colorado as a platform to simply provide their marijuana to the rest of the country.

“There’s a common belief that by legalizing it, you will get rid of the black market. I can resoundly say that the black market is alive and doing well.”

This is what he’s talking about. In October, Denver police and the DEA raided several warehouse operations that were allegedly growing marijuana destined for out-of-state. Neighbors Nebraska and Oklahoma are suing to have the U.S. Supreme Court declare Colorado’s recreational pot market unconstitutional, claiming marijuana is crossing their borders. It’s too early to say if other problems are taking root. Colorado is just now starting to collect and analyze data on pot’s impact on the state.

Andrew Freedman: I do worry about if we are irreparably harming Colorado. And it’s something that will take years to suss out.

This baby-faced 31-year-old, Andrew Freedman, is Colorado’s marijuana czar. He’s a Harvard Law grad – hand picked by Colorado Gov.John Hickenlooper to oversee the rollout of legalized, recreational pot.

Bill Whitaker: There is no roadmap. I mean you guys are racing ahead at, you know, 1,000 miles an hour. And you’re trying to work this out on-the-fly. How do you do that?

Andrew Freedman: It’s an unbelievable challenge. Within one year, we wanted to get our culture up to speed. What is the right amount to imbibe or to smoke and drive? What’s appropriate around kids? What’s appropriate in public? And society had never weighed in on these things before.

[Andrew Freedman: OK, anything else on caregivers? Black market, gray market, where we’re going on it?]

“I do worry about if we are irreparably harming Colorado. And it’s something that will take years to suss out.”

He regularly calls together the department heads of revenue; health; education; all the state agencies involved with marijuana – trying to balance the demands of the people with public safety and the law.

Bill Whitaker: It’s legal here, but outside of Colorado, it’s still illegal. It’s a federally illegal drug. How do you square those two?

Andrew Freedman: Well, it is a round peg in a square hole. It takes everybody being creative in ways they haven’t been creative before, and knowing that at any time the federal government could come and shut us down, tell us that what we’re doing is illegal in their eyes.

Bill Whitaker: You still think that’s possible?

Andrew Freedman: Sure. It’s completely possible that in a few years, somebody comes around and says – a new president says, “We’re not OK with you doing this.”

They know they’re under a microscope. That’s why Colorado was quick to act when it bit into trouble with edibles — marijuana candies, cookies and other infused foods. Just three months into legalization, a 19-year-old college student visiting Denver leapt to his death from a hotel balcony after eating a pot-laced cookie. The coroner’s reported noted “marijuana intoxication” as “a significant contributing factor.”

Andrew Freedman: I think one of the things we didn’t see coming was that– people were gonna overdose on edibles. And we’re not gonna try to hide that problem. New rules and regulations came out faster than I think you ever see state government do something.

New rules placed immediate limits on the amount of THC, marijuana’s major psychoactive ingredient, allowed in edibles and required new labeling detailing the potency of each serving.

But the biggest cloud over the industry is banking. As long as the federal government continues to count pot proceeds as illegal drug money, most banks won’t touch it. So Colorado’s billion dollar marijuana industry is conducted almost entirely in cash: that’s why Meg Sanders keeps a two-ton safe.

Bill Whitaker: So your payroll was in cash?

Meg Sanders: Payroll, rent.

Bill Whitaker: Taxes?

Meg Sanders: Taxes, licensing fees, Home Depot, vendors, you name it, our – our electrician, absolutely.

Bill Whitaker: All in cash?

Meg Sanders: Absolutely. From a public safety standpoint, it’s definitely the number one issue that this industry faces.

Gov. John Hickenlooper: If you want to guarantee that a fledgling industry becomes corrupt and, you know, becomes populated with gang activity make it all cash, right. That’s as old as Al Capone, right. Cash creates corruption.

Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper says a partial solution might be a new state-chartered cannabis credit union. He’s urging the federal government to approve it. Still, despite the problems, Governor Hickenlooper says he’s encouraged by the rollout of this green experiment Colorado voters wanted.

Bill Whitaker: In the beginning you didn’t think it was a good idea?

Gov. John Hickenlooper: No. I opposed it. You know, and I opposed it and I think even after the election if I’d had a magic wand and I could wave the wand I probably would’ve reversed it and had the initiative fail. But now, I look at it and I’m not so sure I’d do that even if I had such a wand. I mean, I think we’ve made a lot of progress. And, you know, still a lot of work to be done. But I think we might actually create a system that can work.

[Customer: Alright, I will have an eighth of that.]

Meg Sanders says marijuana is good for business.

[Customer: That’s pretty groovy dude.]

And good for Colorado.

Bill Whitaker: Are you seeing a marijuana effect on the economy here?

Meg Sanders: Absolutely. You can’t find an empty warehouse in the city of Denver (laugh) really. I mean, you just can’t. And then think of the ripple effect. I mean we affect a ton of businesses. Security, marketing– you know– web hosting. You name– we’re a business just like anybody else. We have the same needs.

Mindful store CBS News

Today, you can walk into a Mindful dispensary and buy a joint for $14.53. Business is good. Sanders is planning to expand.

Meg Sanders: We’re creating. We’re saying, “Please, trust us. We know that we can do this right.”

Bill Whitaker: I do I remember when this was rolled out everyone thought that the sky was going to fall.

Meg Sanders: It’s still there. (laugh) It didn’t fall. And business is thriving. And the customers are still coming through the door. So clearly, if I’m looking at my business and I’m looking at those around me, the consumer is saying, “Yeah, this works.”

It's been a year since Colorado became the first state to legalize recreational pot, Bill Whitaker checks in

growing high cbd strains

Is Growing High-CBD Cannabis Different from Growing High-THC Cannabis?

If you’re thinking about growing hemp or high-CBD strains of cannabis in order to harvest the CBD, you may be wondering how similar the process is to growing cannabis for THC.

The process is remarkably similar, but not exactly the same.

On a biological and legal level, the only difference between hemp and high-CBD or high-THC cannabis plants is… the amount of THC and CBD. These are all simply different strains of the cannabis plant.

This plant in the front is a high-CBD strain of cannabis, with low levels of THC. Those plants in the back? They are all high-THC strains of cannabis. It’s hard to tell the difference, isn’t it? That’s because the only difference is the THC percentage.

Closeup of a bud on that same Critical+ CBD Auto plant

Hemp vs Cannabis vs Medical Marijuana: Like Different Strains of Roses

I look at my balcony and I have two rose bushes; a “Floribunda” and a “Fragrant Cloud”. They’re both strains of roses, but they grow differently and their flowers look and smell markedly different. The Floribunda grows lots of tiny orange roses that don’t have much of a smell, while the Fragrant Cloud makes just a few big hefty red roses that envelop the air with flowery perfume.

Each of these roses has their own “personality” but the actual plant care is basically the same. They get the same types of nutrients, watering, pruning, etc. This is basically what you’re looking at when it comes to different strains of cannabis, hemp or marijuana.

What is hemp and why is it legal?

Hemp was recently legalized on a federal level in the United States. But how is hemp different from cannabis?

There is exactly ONE difference between regular cannabis or marijuana and hemp….

The THC content. That’s it. You can have two strains of cannabis that look exactly the same, but if one contains less than 0.3% THC, it is considered hemp, while if it has even 0.4% THC by dry weight (in any part of the plant) it’s no longer considered to be hemp.

Learn more on the USDA government website (Excerpt: “The term ‘industrial hemp’ includes the plant Cannabis sativa L. and any part or derivative of the plant including seeds, whether or not it is used exclusively for industrial purposes (fiber and seed). The tetrahydrocannabinols (THC) concentration is the distinguishing factor between industrial hemp and marijuana. Industrial hemp cannot have a THC concentration more than 0.3 percent on a dry weight basis.”)

I know it seems like it should be more complicated than that, but that’s it. “Industrial hemp” is basically any strain of cannabis with extremely low levels of THC. The strains of hemp used by farmers typically have also been bred for a specific purpose such as providing fiber.

These plants are a type of industrial hemp. This cannabis strain has been selected to produce negligible amounts of THC and strong fibrous stalks.

How to Grow Cannabis or Hemp for CBD

If you want to grow your own CBD, the most important thing is to start with a high-CBD strain. You can’t force a cannabis plant to produce more CBD than its genes allow, and many if not most popular cannabis strains contain high levels of THC and less than 1% CBD. Genetics is key!

  1. Choose a high-CBD strain of cannabis.Note: if a plant contains more than 0.3% THC it is not considered hemp. If you’re concerned with THC percentages and making sure you’re growing hemp, it’s extremely important to get a strain from a trusted breeder.
  2. Grow mostly like typical cannabis. Here’s a 10-step guide to getting set up and growing your own cannabis. Here are tips for increasing CBD when growing cannabis.
  3. Pay attention to harvest time. For the highest levels of CBD, you should harvest plants at the beginning of the harvest window. Both CBD and THC start to degrade as buds continue to mature. If you harvest buds late there are a few differences. Buds harvested on the later side usually have slightly lower levels of CBD and THC, but higher levels of CBN. As a result, buds harvested later tend to be less psychoactive (due to less THC), and are more likely to make you feel sleepy or have a strong body effect (due to more CBN). Because of the various ways cannabinoids interact with each other, it’s important to experiment with harvesting early vs later to see what works best for you. Just because harvesting early gives the absolute highest level of CBD doesn’t mean the resulting buds will work the best for you. You should experiment with different harvest times because every body reacts differently!
  4. Keep the leaves. CBD is contained not just in the flowers/buds of the plant, but also in the leaves. The CBD concentration is relatively low so the leaves are not suitable to smoke, but the CBD can be extracted by turning the leaves into things like butter, tincture or oil. Note: CBD extractions made from leaves are typically less concentrated/strong than extractions made from the actual flowers/buds.
  5. Extracting CBD. Unlike the leaves, the CBD-rich buds/flowers are often smoked or vaped. However, many people prefer to consume them in some type of edible form. This has a slower onset but the effects tend to be longer-lasting. For the most part, any method that extracts THC will also extract CBD, as they’re both cannabinoids that easily attach to oil. The problem is you can’t easily separate THC and CBD from each other. So if the starting plant matter has no THC, then a simple extraction into butter/oil/tincture will extract the CBD. But if you’re trying to get just CBD from plant matter that has both THC and CBD, well you need equipment for that! This is why it’s so important you start with the right strain. If the plant produces only the cannabinoids you want, you don’t have to do anything but extract and enjoy them.

We’re currently testing various methods to further increase CBD levels when growing small hemp plants indoors. We’re also collaborating with experts to produce the best butters, oils, tinctures and CBD-rich candies so you have access to professional quality CBD sources at home. Stay tuned!

cbd process

We make no compromises when it comes to quality. This begins by selecting local, European-certified seeds. Because we have plenty of experience, we can choose the perfect strain for certain formulations with the proper CBD percentage and cannabinoid ratio. We then place the precious seeds into carefully selected, fertile soil. For this task, we revived some traditional European hemp-growing farms in Slovenia and Croatia. Our environmental awareness and natural resources give us an advantage in producing all-natural raw hemp free of pesticides, herbicides, fungicides and heavy metals.

Sophisticated plant extraction is crucial for obtaining the highest quality oil, free from solvent residue and toxins. We trust the supercritical CO2 method, which uses high pressures and low temperatures, to very precisely extract and protect the CBD essence. Beneficial molecules, often lost in other methods, are preserved and the result is a pure, potent and natural extract.

With fields in carefully selected European micro-locations, we grow hemp that is certified as organic.

To preserve the purity of our raw hemp, we use highly efficient and at the same time gentle CO2 extraction.

All our products are tested and monitored by a third-party to bring you the safest, all natural, CBD extracts.

We are meticulous in ensuring the maximum levels of essential fats, antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and other beneficial elements are preserved in every step of the process.

To achieve this, we harvest our hemp only on specially selected days. Like in the past, all our crops are harvested by hand. Each flower is separated from the stalk by hand, which also means we can make a selection and pick only premium flowers. To safeguard the potency of our hemp, we let it dry naturally, always at temperatures below 35° C. A special closed-machine method helps us secure the precious crystals on the flowers, so-called trichomes, where the cannabinoids and terpenes accumulate. The dried material is then pressed into pellets that contain a special PharmaHemp blend of three authentic European hemp varieties, rich in active cannabinoids.

When it comes to harvest, we are all about traditional methods.

quality control

To meet our high-quality standards, we collaborate with the most qualified and best-equipped analytical laboratories that test and monitor every stage of our production and the final product. All our products undergo continuous and rigorous quality assurance with verification as well as short – and long-term stability checks. This ensures the consistency of our products and production compliant with GMP conditions. We believe in transparency, each and every time.

The finest quality and consumer

safety are our main focus.

frequently asked questions

What are Cannabinoids?

There are close to 1250 unique chemical compounds identified in hemp plants. Hundreds of them are terpenoids. Terpenoids are the compounds that give fruits, flowers and herbs many of their desirable aromas, flavors and other special properties. Cannabinoids are a sub-class of terpenoids.
There are over 144 cannabinoids found in hemp and cannabis.

What is CBD oil?

CBD hemp oil is extracted from the stalks and seeds of industrial hemp plants.
CBD oil is a cannabis oil that contains significant amounts of cannabidiol (CBD). The supercritical CO2 extraction process also preserves all other cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids and nutrients, and contains only trace amounts of THC (below 0.2%).

What is Cannabidiol (CBD)?

Cannabidiol (CBD) is the primary cannabinoid in industrial hemp (Cannabis sativa L.) In recent years there is increasing interest in the therapeutic potential of CBD, which causes no psychotropic effects, is not psychoactive (cannot get you “high”) and even in high doses does not cause relevant side-effects. Its chemical formula is C21H30O2.

Are the CBD oil drops legal?

Before buying you have to inquire information about the legality of the article in your country. Otherwise, CBD oil drops are legal and you do not require a permit or recommendation from your doctor to buy Pharmahemp™ products. It can be purchased online and shipped to your home, anywhere in the Europe and other countries around the world.

What is Endocannabinoid System (ECS)?

The endocannabinoid system (ECS), named after the plant that led to its discovery, is a group of endogenous cannabinoid receptors located in the mammalian brain and throughout the central and peripheral nervous systems and organs. Consisting of neuromodulatory lipids and their receptors.In other words, it is a »command and control« set of biochemical communication regulatory mechanisms dealing with cannabinoid-like substances (endocannabinoids) produced naturally by the human body in general and the brain in particular, where receptors are concentrated in areas associated with thinking, memory, coordination, pleasure and time perception. The ECS is one of the more important biological control systems, which help regulate major bodily functions.

Will I test positive if I use CBD oil drops?

The THC concentrations in hemp oil are nowhere near enough to have any effect on you: industrial hemp plants (Cannabis sativa L.) generally contain only a trace amounts of the THC that marijuana plants contain. THC is the cannabinoid that is targeted in drug tests. These tests look for the metabolic products of THC and begin with a simple urine test sample. The test uses antibodies to detect THC and the metabolite it produces, known by the rather complicated name of ‘11-nor-delta9-caboxy-THC (THC-COOH)’. If initial tests find that you have more than 50 Nanograms (ng) of these substances in your urine, a Gas Chromatography / Mass Spectrometry (GC/MS) test is carried out to confirm the result. This test targets the 11-nor-THCCOOH metabolite and is not sensitive to other cannabinoids including CBD.

Do I get high from Pharmahemp CBD oil drops?

CBD is non-psychoactive, meaning that you cannot get “high” or intoxicated by consuming CBD oil drops, as well as any other raw natural product from industrial hemp plants for that matter.
Our CBD products are all made from industrial hemp, which only contains trace amounts of THC (less than 0,2%), so there is no psychoactive effect from taking our products. The following products do not contain even trace amounts of THC in them, and are completely THC-free: CBD Aqua Drops, pure CBD, CBG crystals, CBD E-Liquids and Terpenes.

What is CO2 extraction?

CO2 extraction is an extraction process that uses pressurized carbon dioxide (CO2) to extract phytochemicals (such as CBD, CBG, or terpenes, flavonoids, etc.) from a plant. CO2 at certain temperatures and pressures acts like a solvent, without the dangers of actually being one. It is the most expensive extraction method and is widely considered the most effective and safest plant extraction method.

We are trusted producer and supplier of superior CBD. The highest standards are the hallmarks of our products. 100% organic. 24 hours delivery.

cbd one mct tincture

The Venice Cookie Co.’s CBD One Tincture

Just a few weeks after the release of their Sativa One Tincture and Indica One Tincture PM Formula with Cannaroma, The Venice Cookie Co. has introduced two CBD tinctures for patients who may not want the psychotropic effects of your typical high-THC product. The CBD One Tincture in particular has an estimated THC-to-CBD ratio of 1:16.5.

The Venice Cookie Co. Unveils Their CBD One Tincture

The Venice Cookie Co. provides cannabis infused products to medical cannabis patients throughout the state of California. I’ve had the pleasure of sampling a number of their products they are among my personal favorites.

In addition to their menu of infused edibles and beverages, The Venice Cookie Co. offers a limited line of tinctures for patients in search of something more immediate. Currently available are the Sativa One Tincture, Indica One Tinture PM Formula with Cannaroma, CBD One Tincture and CBD One Tincture.

CBD One Tincture: A Non-Psychotropic Sublingual Formula

I’ve said it plenty of times before, but quality tincture can be quite hard to come by in Southern California. So, I was excited to hear that The Venice Cookie Co. was working on CBD tincture formulas.

The CBD One Tincture is a liquid coconut oil formula that can either be administered directly under the tongue or in a beverage if you prefer. Each half ounce bottle contains 250 milligrams of cannabidiol (CBD) and less than 20mg of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).

The Venice Cookie Co. lists the following ingredients for the CBD One Tincture:

  • MCT Oil (Liquid Coconut Oil)
  • High CBD Cannabis Oil

According to its label, one full dropper of CBD Balance One Tincture contains 16.5 CBD and less than 1mg of THC.

How Might The CBD One Tincture Affect Me?

After reviewing the CBD Balance One Tincture, and the High THC varieties, I was very interested to see how the CBD One Tincture would compare.

“2-3 full droppers of the CBD One Tincture was a great way to help ward off social anxiety .”

Unlike the alcohol-based versions of the other aforementioned tinctures, the coconut oil base makes the CBD Balance One tincture very easy to drop directly under your tongue without burning yourself – it doesn’t taste half bad either.

I personally like to let the tincture swish around under my tongue for 10-15 seconds before swallowing it, as this will allow for faster uptake of the cannabinoids.

Perhaps not surprisingly, 2-3 full droppers of the CBD One Tincture was a great way to help ward off social anxiety. I also found it useful in keeping my level of stress to a minimum, and I believe it could be useful in the case of depression as well.

I Took CBD Oil Every Day for My Anxiety—Here’s What Went Down

When I first learned about CBD oil, I’ll admit I was a bit skeptical. My mind immediately turned to weed and the unnerving experiences I’d had with heightened anxiety in college. For me, a person who’s already predisposed to overthinking, marijuana, no matter what the form, would typically put my mind into overdrive and result in a common yet dreaded side effect: Paranoia. But, let’s back up a bit. What even is CBD?

What Is CBD?

CBD is short for cannabidiol, which comes from the Cannabid sativa plant (also known as marijuana). It’s a naturally occurring substance used in oils and edibles to help calm and relax.

What is CBD

A bit of online digging led me to realize that the active ingredient in Charlotte’s Web Everyday Plus Hemp Oil, the product I’d been offered to test, was the chemical compound CBD, which stands for cannabidiol. Unlike THC, the other crucial compound in hemp and marijuana plants, CBD (when derived from the hemp plant) does not produce the psychoactive effects that make you feel “high”; instead, emerging science has hinted that CBD may actually ease anxiety, and therefore, makes you less likely to freak out.  

For example, one study comparing the effects of THC and CBD found that, while THC increased anxiety by activating the neurotransmitters involved in the “fight or flight” response, CBD actually repressed autonomic arousal—or the nervous system response associated with sudden increases in heart rate or respiration.   In other words, CBD may be ideal for people looking to relax and unwind.

While the science behind CBD’s effectiveness for treating anxiety, pain, and insomnia is still in its infancy,   Charlotte Figi’s inspiring story sounds promising. Figi, a 6-year-old girl diagnosed with a rare and resistant form of epilepsy known as Dravet syndrome, was placed on hospice care and given a “do not resuscitate” order when her parents, desperate and frustrated with pharmaceutical medication, considered medical marijuana; specifically, a strain low in THC and high in CBD. Charlotte is now nearly seizure-free since she began supplementing with Charlotte Web’s CBD oil, which the brand named after Figi.

Legal and Safety Things To Know About CBD

The current CBD industry is like the internet’s early years. the Wild West. Legally, speaking, a Harvard Medical School blog post reads, “All 50 states have laws legalizing CBD with varying degrees of restriction, and while the federal government still considers CBD in the same class as marijuana, it doesn’t habitually enforce against it.”   With heightened interest around CBD, it’s important to note that because CBD is currently unregulated, it’s difficult to know what you’re getting (whether that’s a tincture—commonly referred to as CBD oil, which is often combined with a carrier oil like coconut oil—topical products like creams and balms, sprays, or capsules), despite product labels and brand promises, the blog post further reads. It’s also important to note that people experience CBD differently. For the most part, the National Institute of Medicine says that while most people can tolerate CBD, side effects do exist. They might include dry mouth, drowsiness, and reduced appetite, among others.  

That said, those interested in exploring the potential benefits of CBD should consult with their doctor (especially if you are pregnant, nursing, or currently taking medication) and be mindful of your dosage, writes Consumer Reports. And before you buy, Megan Villa, co-founder of the hemp-focused website and shop Svn Space, told Shape magazine to seek out a certificate of analysis. “Ask for a COA for the batch number of the product you have, since these products are made in batches,” she said. “You need to match the batch number to the COA that pertains to it.” Then, scan the report for potency (i.e. does the number of milligrams of CBD that the product label touts match the lab report?), contaminants and pesticides, and mold (which should live under the “Microbiological Testing” part of the report). Go a step further and note whether the testing lab is GMP (Good Manufacturing Principles) certified, and whether the lab is registered with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Shape magazine also suggests purchasing CBD products made from domestically-grown hemp, and reading up on the difference between full- and broad-spectrum and CBD isolate.

With that, I threw caution to the wind and asked for a sample. Here’s what happened—including what it feels like—when I took one full dropper of Charlotte’s Web’s Everyday Plus Hemp Oil in the mint chocolate flavor every morning for seven days.

My First Impression

It was actually a bad bout of jet lag after a trip to California that inspired me to finally test out the CBD oil (I’ll admit that my weed-based reservations kept me from trying it for the first few months). Knowing that the oil had also helped people with sleep issues, I squeezed one full dropper of the Everyday Plus oil onto my tongue, per the instructions, and waited.

Thirty minutes later, I was surprised by how subtle the effect was. While I expected a hazy nodding-off effect similar to melatonin’s, the oil simply relaxed my body ever so slightly—my heart stopped pounding against my chest, my legs stopped kicking beneath my sheets, my mind stopped racing. I wasn’t sure if it was the oil or the late hour, but eventually, physical relaxation gave way to mental relaxation, and I drifted off to sleep.

Reflecting the next morning, I was most surprised by the fact that I never felt “high” in any way—there was never a moment of It’s kicking in; I can feel it now like with pain medications or even anti-anxiety drugs. Considering it takes time, consistency, and the right dosage to experience the full effect, I continued taking the oil once a day for the next six days. Here’s what went down.

It Made Me Less Anxious and Edgy

Rather than overthinking a sternly worded email or analyzing a social interaction, I found it easier to recognize the irrationality of these thoughts and actually let them go.

While normally I’d be slightly tripped up by little things like an overly crowded subway car or a full inbox at work, the CBD oil seems to have taken the edge off of my anxiety a bit. Rather than overthinking a sternly worded email or analyzing a social interaction, I found it easier to recognize the irrationality of these thoughts and actually let them go. In some ways, I feel more like myself. With that said, I’ve still experienced some social anxiety when meeting new groups of people—I’d be interested to see what taking the full recommended dose would do.

I’m More Focused At Work

I work well under pressure, but being extremely busy at work has almost made me less productive—I’m constantly distracted by email, Slack, and the people around me, to the point where getting my work done becomes difficult. This week, however, I’ve found it easier to put my blinders on, block out all distractions (especially social distractions), and focus on one task at a time. I think this is partly related to the lessened anxiety—I feel more frazzled and off task when my anxiety is running high. It almost feels like a newfound sense of clarity and calm that enables me to focus.

I’m Falling Asleep Faster

I assume this is also a side effect of feeling less anxious, but I seem to fall asleep faster; within the 20-30-minute range rather than my normal 45 minutes to one hour (or longer). Not only do I seem to be skipping or at least shortening the whole tossing-and-turning phase of my sleep cycle, but I’m able to snap out of the overthinking that often keeps me up at night. Of course, there’s no telling whether a big life event would disrupt this newfound bliss, but I’d like to think it’s helped on a day-to-day basis.

The Verdict

Would I say that CBD oil has fundamentally changed my life? No. But per the Charlotte’s Web website, this is the typical first experience. “Anyone who has ever started a new vitamin or supplement routine knows the short answer to how long it takes to kick in is—’it depends.’ For many newcomers, they’re not sure what to imagine, or some anticipate a huge change right away. For most of us, though, dietary supplements take time.”

With that said, I’m definitely intrigued enough by the subtle effects to continue taking the oil and to possibly up the dosage to the recommended two full droppers of the 30mL bottle per day. Plus, I take comfort in knowing that it’s an all-natural product that’s responsibly grown on family farms in Colorado. Something that’s safe, legal, requires no prescription, and makes me less anxious, less scatterbrained, and more focused? I’m definitely on board.
