Sunshine 1:1:10 When you need an extra boost of stamina and mental clarity, try adding a little Sunshine to your day. This tincture is a mentally stimulating THC-dominant blend with refreshing citrus notes and beneficial botanicals. Gotu kola reduces anxiety and supports cognitive function, while ashwagandha helps manage cortisol levels in the body. The addition of algae oil promotes mental sharpness and helps reduce inflammation. Sunshine is the optimal morning tincture to awaken your energy levels and lift your spirits.
Recovery 2:1:3 This tincture is perfect for recovery when experiencing chronic tiredness or jet lag. It contains thai basil extract, a potent adaptogen that can help promote a balanced mood and healthy stress levels.. It also features green tea, which is rich in antioxidants. With a ratio of two parts CBD, one part CBG, and three parts THC, this product promises both deep soothing and invigorating effects.
Paradise 1:1:6 This tincture was made to optimize your recreational or medical cannabis usage. With a whopping 900 mg of THC per bottle, you’ll truly feel like you’ve been transported to paradise. To modulate this product’s potent psychoactive content, we’ve added lion’s mane extract, a nootropic mushroom known to support cognitive function. We also included bacopa and rhodiola, two plants known for increasing cognitive function and energy.
Dream 1:1:4:2 The solution for sleepless nights has arrived -this product contains CBD, CBG, CBN, and THC. CBG is a non-psychoactive minor cannabinoid that can act in conjunction with other cannabis compounds to increase their effectiveness. It also contains lemon balm, which has been studied extensively for its anti-anxiety properties. Kava kava was added due to its anti-stress, analgesic and neuroprotective properties. The addition of reishi mushroom, which can ease stress and guide you to a good night’s sleep, is also rich in antioxidants and potentially has anti-aging properties.
Balance 1:1:1 If you’re looking for daytime wellness, look no further. With a perfect 1:1:1 ratio of CBD, CBG, and THC, you’ll feel relaxed and focused without overwhelming or drowsing effects. This tincture contains only two ingredients: Cannabis and MCT oil.
Sensual 1:1:6 This potent tincture combines moderate values of CBD and CBG with a high THC concentration. It also contains a blend of natural aphrodisiacs, including saffron, ashwagandha, and passionflower. Saffron has the potential to improve sexual function and desire, while ashwagandha is being studied for its potential to reduce stress and anxiety, allowing you to fully enjoy the moment. Passionflower has been traditionally used to increase libido and enhance sexual pleasure.
What Are Cannabis Tinctures?
If you go to a natural health store, you’ll probably find a myriad of tinctures promising better sleep, stress reduction, and even immunity support. One of the most common plants included in tinctures is cannabis. Cannabis compounds found in tinctures are powerful tools to promote a healthy mental state, assist with chronic pain, or simply have a good time. Combining them with other botanical extracts can elevate whichever health benefit the infusion was made to achieve.
Like all Kurvana products, our tinctures are always full-spectrum because they use the whole plant. Our extraction process works to protect these compounds, as they can be easily lost if not treated carefully. We also ensure our raw material is grown sustainably and ethically on our California Central Coast farms.
Cannabis Tinctures vs. Edibles
Since both tinctures and edibles are ingestible, many people believe they work the same way. Edibles are foods that contain cannabinoids and get metabolized by our stomach and liver. Their effects take longer to appear because they need to be digested first. On the other hand, when tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) content passes through the liver enzymes, its effects intensify. Tinctures are absorbed through the mouth and travel directly to the bloodstream instead of going through the entire digestive system, so their effects show up in only a few minutes. Another difference between the two is their predictability. Tinctures tend to be more predictable and reproducible, because oral absorption is fairly similar from one person to another. This allows us to easily define serving sizes compatible with most users. On top of that, they are great options for those with food restrictions, as their ingredient list is usually minimal and rarely contains gluten, dairy, sugar, animal products, etc.
How to Use Cannabis Tinctures?
It is always important to follow the instructions on the packaging to ensure the best enjoyment of your specific tincture. For Kurvana tinctures, place the liquid under your tongue and hold it for at least 15 seconds before swallowing. Holding for as long as possible is essential to allow your mouth to absorb the solution effectively.
For beginners, it is recommended to start with tinctures containing a higher cannabidiol (CBD) to THC ratio. When moving to greater concentrations of psychoactive cannabinoids – which include THC and cannabinol (CBN) – it might be worth starting small. Instead of taking one full dropper, consider taking a half or even a quarter-dropper. Once you feel confident with your current dose, increase it gradually until you reach the recommended single serving shown on the packaging. It is required by law to display accurate dosing information on tincture bottles containing THC.
Tinctures can also be quite different from each other when it comes to their dosing frequency. The ones with calming or sleep-inducing effects are typically administered in one higher dose, while those promoting everyday wellness can be micro-dosed throughout the day.
