Cannabis extract



Cannabis tinctures are cannabis extracts, wherein the primary solvent is alcohol. They are commonly packed in tiny glass vials with droppers as caps for simple administration and are administered orally, sublingually, or blended in foods or beverages. Tinctures are a popular way to take cannabis without having to inhale or burn it.
