Todo lo que necesitas saber sobre las tinturas.

Hay muchas maneras de consumir cannabis, pero algunas son más fáciles de usar que otras. Ya sea que sea un nuevo usuario de marihuana medicinal o un nuevo usuario recreativo, las tinturas son un excelente lugar para comenzar su viaje de cannabis. ¿Qué es una tintura sin el cannabis? Son cualquier medicamento hecho al disolver una droga en alcohol. Repasaremos todo lo que necesita saber sobre una tintura de cannabis, incluida la forma en que se fabrican, usan y almacenan.

¿Qué es una tintura?

Las tinturas están hechas con un alto porcentaje de alcohol y vienen en botellas de vidrio con goteros. Como resultado, la tintura de cannabis es uno de los mejores métodos de consumo para una dosificación precisa.

El alcohol se usa para extraer terpenos y cannabinoides como el THC del resto del material vegetal. El cannabis utilizado debe descarboxilarse para garantizar que todos los ingredientes estén activos. De lo contrario, los efectos de la medicina no serán tan fuertes como podrían ser.

Similar a los comestibles, las tinturas se consumen por vía oral. De hecho, las tinturas se pueden usar por vía sublingual, oral o para infundir casi cualquier plato que desee. Lo mejor de todo, las tinturas son de acción más rápida que su típico comestible. Por lo tanto, no tendrá que esperar dos o tres horas solo para descubrir que su medicamento no funcionó. Debe poder saber, poco después de una dosis de tintura, si necesitará más o no.

A pesar de su conveniencia, rara vez se habla de tinturas de cannabis. Antes de la prohibición, era la forma más común de cannabis medicinal en los Estados Unidos.

Hoy, la mayor atención se dirige a otros métodos de consumo de cannabis, como fumar y al mercado de concentrado de cannabis que está en constante crecimiento. Sin embargo, el interés en formas alternativas de consumo ha estado creciendo en los últimos años. Como resultado, puede encontrar tinturas de cannabis en casi cualquier dispensario de marihuana medicinal en el país.

Cómo hacer una tintura de cannabis

Para hacer una tintura de cannabis, querrás tener el mayor porcentaje de alcohol posible. No todas las tinturas son iguales. La potencia del producto final dependerá de la calidad y cantidad del cannabis que use.

Ingredientes y equipamiento:

Como mínimo, querrás los siguientes ingredientes y equipos para hacer una tintura de cannabis:

  • Media onza de flores de cannabis.
  • Alto contenido de alcohol por volumen de licor.
  • Amoladora
  • Estopilla
  • tarro de albañil
  • Botellas cuentagotas de vidrio
  • Sartén a prueba de horno
  • Papel de aluminio
  • Vaso medidor de vidrio
  • Guantes

Descarboxilación

Antes de comenzar, necesitará hierba o concentrados descarboxilados. Según una investigación de científicos en Holanda, la temperatura óptima para la descarboxilación es de 230 grados Fahrenheit durante 110 minutos.

Así que muele tu cannabis o rómpelo en trozos más pequeños y llena la sartén apta para horno con ellos. Cubra la sartén con papel de aluminio para que la hierba no se caliente lo suficiente como para quemar o vaporizar. Hornee en un horno que haya sido precalentado a 230 grados Fahrenheit durante 110 minutos.

Direcciones

Una vez que haya reunido los materiales necesarios, hacer una tintura de cannabis es fácil.

Paso 1: coloque su cannabis descarboxilado en el tarro de albañil y llénelo con el mayor porcentaje de alcohol como Everclear hasta que el cannabis esté completamente sumergido.

Paso 2: varias fuentes recomiendan congelar el frasco lleno de alcohol y cannabis durante varios días o dos semanas mientras lo sacas para agitarlo una vez al día. El frío ayuda a separar los componentes menos deseados de la planta de cannabis como la clorofila del producto final.

Paso 3: El siguiente paso es colar los materiales a través de una gasa en una taza medidora de vidrio. Una vez que el líquido ya no pase a través de la gasa, use guantes para exprimir el líquido restante a través de la gasa y dentro de la taza de medir. Puede usar otra gasa para limpiar el material aún más antes de llenar las botellas de vidrio con cuentagotas.

Paso 4: El último paso es almacenar adecuadamente su tintura. Transfiera todo a un frasco cuentagotas de vidrio para una fácil dosificación. Para el almacenamiento a largo plazo, puede dejarlo en un tarro de albañil. De cualquier manera, querrás que el ambiente sea fresco y oscuro. El aire, la luz y el calor disminuyen la calidad y la potencia de las tinturas.

Cómo usar tinturas de cannabis

Una vez que hayas hecho o comprado una tintura de cannabis, hay tres formas de usarla. Agréguelo a cualquier plato, colóquelo en su boca o ingiéralo por vía sublingual.

El método de consumo sublingual es uno de los mejores si desea sentir los efectos más fuertes y rápidos. Deje caer la dosis adecuada debajo de su lengua. Espere medio minuto y trague. Esto permite que el medicamento ingrese al torrente sanguíneo para un inicio más rápido.

La forma más fácil de usar una tintura de cannabis es simplemente colocando la dosis deseada en la boca y tragando. Los efectos no aparecerán tan rápido como con la técnica sublingual. Tardará casi tanto como lo haría con los comestibles para sentir los efectos.

El método final de consumo es relativamente simple. Coloque la dosis que desee en cualquier alimento o bebida que elija. La aparición de los efectos debería tomar tanto tiempo como los comestibles. Al consumir una comida con el medicamento, puede comenzar a combatir a los bocadillos incluso antes de que comiencen.

Razones para probar tinturas

Como hemos ilustrado, hay muchas ventajas al usar tinturas sobre otros métodos de consumo de cannabis. Aquí hay una lista de los beneficios de usar tinturas sobre otros métodos de consumo:

  • Menos calorías: puede obtener la experiencia comestible de las comidas que ya estaba planeando comer en lugar de dulces como gomitas y brownies.
  • Discreción: las tinturas no huelen a cannabis y en una botella de vidrio con un gotero, se verán como cualquier otra medicina.
  • Inicio más rápido: Sublingualmente, los efectos duran más.
  • Dosificación precisa: con comestibles, flores y concentrados, es más fácil tomar accidentalmente una dosis mayor de la necesaria. Las tinturas te permiten tomar unas gotas a la vez hasta que sientas los efectos deseados.
  • Más simple que fumar: las personas a las que no les gusta o les cuesta fumar o vapear cannabis se encuentran mejor usando tinturas.

Golpe final: tintura de cannabis

Las tinturas de cannabis ofrecen una manera simple y discreta de recibir los beneficios médicos de la planta sin tener que ser fumador. Solo se necesitan unos pocos ingredientes para hacer tinturas de cannabis, pero debes tener cuidado al prepararlos en casa porque un alto porcentaje de alcohol es inflamable. También hay dispositivos que facilitan completar todo el proceso en un solo lugar.

1. What is CBD? What is CBD Oil?

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a naturally occurring constituent of industrial hemp/cannabis. Its formula is C21H30O2 and it has a molecular mass of 314.4636. It is the most abundant non-psychoactive cannabinoid found in cannabis, and is being scientifically investigated for various reasons.

CBD oil is a cannabis oil (whether derived from marijuana or industrial hemp, as the word cannabis is the latin genus name for both) that has significant amounts of cannabidiol (CBD) contained within it. Our CBD products and extracts are derived from industrial hemp, so they could be considered CBD-rich hemp oil, hemp derived CBD oil, CBD-rich cannabis oil, or plainly “hemp extracts” since they typically contain much more than just CBD. Again, cannabis doesn’t mean marijuana, but is the genus name, and general umbrella term which all forms of marijuana and hemp fall under. The form of cannabis we use for our CBD and hemp extracts is industrial hemp; we do not sell marijuana.

2. If a hemp extract is 40% cannabinoids, what’s the other 60%? What’s in your hemp extracts besides the naturally occurring cannabinoids?

Our Kentucky hemp extracts contain over 80 different phyto-cannabinoids such as cannabidiol (CBD), CBC, CBG, CBN, etc.. In addition to the cannabinoids naturally present in our agricultural hemp extracts, there are also many other types of natural molecules and phyto-chemical compounds such as amino acids, carbohydrates, vitamins (including B1, B2, B6, D), fatty acids (including omega 3 & 6), trace minerals (including iron, zinc, calcium, magnesium, potassium), beta-carotene, chlorophyll, flavanoids, ketones, nitrogenous compounds, alkanes, glycosides, pigments, water, and terpenes. The most common terpenes in our hemp extracts are Myrcene, Beta-caryophyllene, Terpinolene, Linalool, alpha-Pinene, beta-Pinene, Nerolidol og Phytol, trans-alpha-Bergamotene, Limonene/ beta-Phellandrene (Co-elution), and alpha-Humulene.

3. What’s the difference between Hemp and Marijuana?

Scientifically, industrial Hemp and Marijuana are the same plant, with a genus and species name of Cannabis Sativa. They have a drastically different genetic profile though. Industrial Hemp is always a strain of Cannabis sativa, while marijuana can be Cannabis sativa, Cannabis indica, or Cannabis ruderalis. The major difference is how industrial hemp has been bred compared to a marijuana form of Cannabis sativa. organic hemp seedsTypically speaking, industrial hemp is very fibrous, with long strong stalks, and barely has any flowering buds, while a marijuana strain of Cannabis sativa will be smaller, bushier, and full of flowering buds. However, newer industrial hemp varieties in the USA are being bred to have more flowers and higher yields of cannabinoids and terpenes, such as our Kentucky hemp we’re now using!

99% of the time marijuana has a high amount of THC and only a very low amount of CBD. Hemp, on the other hand, naturally has a very high amount of CBD in most instances, and only a trace amount of THC. Fortunately, the cannabinoid profile of hemp is ideal for people looking for benefits from cannabis without the ‘high.’ Hemp is used for making herbal supplements, food, fiber, rope, paper, bricks, oil, natural plastic, and so much more, whereas marijuana is usually used just recreationally, spiritually, and medicinally. The term cannabis oil can refer to either a marijuana or hemp derived oil, since marijuana and hemp are two different forms of cannabis.

In the USA the legal definition of “industrial hemp,” per Section 7606 of the Agricultural Appropriations Act of 2014, is “INDUSTRIAL HEMP — The term ‘‘industrial hemp’’ means the plant Cannabis sativa L. and any part of such plant, whether growing or not, with a delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol concentration of not more than 0.3 percent on a dry weight basis.”

4. Are hemp derived cannabinoids such as CBD as good as CBD from marijuana?

The short answer is yes. CBD is CBD, whether from marijuana or hemp. Most marijuana has a very low non-psychoactive cannabinoid profile (like CBD, CBC, CBG), so most of the time hemp would be much more preferable for anything besides THC. Marijuana is usually very high in THC (gives people the high) but usually very low in other non-psychoactive cannabinoids.

Nowadays in the USA, many farmers are growing industrial hemp flowers that are just as beautiful, odor-producing, and terpene rich as the best marijuana strains, such as our partnered farmers in Kentucky.

5. Why don’t you source your Hemp and CBD from within Colorado?

colorado growing operationWe feel that the hemp program in Kentucky is more well suited for our company in regards to growing hemp, and that because it’s 100% compliant with Section 7606 of the 2014 Farm Bill (and the 2016 Agricultural Appropriations Act), procuring it from there is perfectly legal at the federal level. Kentucky’s ecology is perfect for hemp just as it is for tobacco. The growing season is longer than in Colorado, and the soil is richer, so the quality of the hemp and the yields are better.

6. What’s the percentage of cannabinoids and CBD in your product?

Our raw extracts have varying percentages of cannabinoid and cannabidiol (CBD) content, the range being 10%-99%. Each product has a unique formulation and uses varying ratios of our extract types. Our CBD Isolate is over 99% pure CBD.

7. What is the best method of use?

For our dietary supplements we can only recommend them for internal consumption. Our CBD isolate is for research purposes only. If you don’t like the flavor of the oil supplements, you can mix with something sweet like apple sauce or honey to cut through the flavor.

8. What’s the ideal serving size for me, and how often should I take it?

There is no easy answer to this. Our starting recommended serving size is 15 drops but we generally recommend experimenting to see what feels best to you. Some prefer 5 drops, some prefer over 50 drops per day.

9. What is the safety of your hemp extracts? Are there negative side effects?

Hemp is considered by many to be generally safe. We’ve never seen or heard of any significant or negative CBD Oil Extractside effects in our years in the industry. That said, we can’t rule them out. Please consult with your physician before using any dietary supplement including Hemp extract supplements.

10. Which of your CBD and hemp products should I get?

As a company who sells various dietary and food supplements, we can’t suggest any of our products for the prevention, treatment or cure of any disease or ailment.

When considering our different dietary hemp products, know that they all come in two strengths. Our Original Hemp blends (Classic Hemp Blend, Hemp Complete, Brainpower oil, & Signature Blend) all have 250+mg of cannabinoids per fluid ounce, and our concentrated blends have 1,500+mg per fluid ounce, six times the potency of our traditional oils. We’ve found that sometimes less is more, but nevertheless, some people like to take very large serving sizes of our hemp extracts.

The main difference between the four Original Blends is the additional herbal ingredients besides hemp. We suggest you research the separate components of each blend to determine which product may be most appealing to add to your dietary regimen. If you know it’s solely the hemp extract that you are looking for, with no additional ingredients, then Classic Hemp Blend or Classic Hemp 6x is what you’re looking for.

For dabbing and vaporizing or for research you can try our CBD Isolate.

THOSE WHO SUSPECT THEY MAY HAVE A DISEASE OR ARE SEEKING HELP FOR A DISEASE SHOULD CONSULT A QUALIFIED MEDICAL PROFESSIONAL.

11. Why do people use Hemp Extracts and CBD? What are the benefits and uses of CBD?

In accordance with federal regulations we cannot make health claims regarding our dietary supplement products. We can only recommend our products for general wellness.

12. Is a standard hemp seed oil the same as a high-CBD hemp extract?

Hemp Oil For Dogs

Hemp Oil For Dogs

Absolutely not. Standard hemp oil, which can be found very cheaply at a grocery store, is a much different product than our CO2 hemp extracts (not from seed). Standard hemp oil is produced by cold pressing the seeds, whereas our hemp extract is a supercritical CO2 extraction of the hemp plant itself, not the seeds. Hemp seed oil is considered to be a great nutritive food, but it doesn’t have the naturally occurring terpenes, cannabinoids and other components that our extracts do have.

13. Do I need to move to Colorado to get your Hemp Extracts and CBD? Where do you ship?

No. We actually source our hemp from Kentucky, as it’s legal to ship across state lines. Many people are under the impression that the only way to acquire hemp extracts and CBD for themselves or a loved one is to move to Colorado or another cannabis-friendly state. Many major news outlets are misinformed and are unfortunately spreading the idea that you can only get CBD oil in the states where medical marijuana has been legalized. This is simply not the case though. Because our extracts comes from hemp instead of marijuana, we can and do ship to all fifty states, and no medical marijuana card is needed. There are some exceptions, like with Indiana, Missouri and South Dakota we can’t sell our concentrated products due to state legislation.

We also ship to Japan, Australia, the EU, Switzerland, and Brazil. For all EU orders contact our exclusive distributor thereCannawell.

14. Is your Hemp Extract Oil similar to Rick Simpson Hemp Oil?

Not quite. Ours are from hemp and RSHO is usually using marijuana, a different form of cannabis than industrial hemp. Our industrial hemp extracts are more standardized and will usually have a much higher content of non-psychoactive cannabinoids like CBD than one produced through the Rick Simpson method. And oils produced through his method will usually have a much higher THC content, as it’s typically marijuana that is used for RSHO.†

Generally speaking, most marijuana producers and sellers (especially on the black market) don’t test for contaminants (metals, pesticides, bacteria, etc.). Rick Simpson Hemp Oil is actually more a method of extraction than it is a specific product. People use the Rick Simpson method with hundreds of different strains of marijuana, so the THC, CBD and other cannabinoid content of the final oil is always varying greatly, depending on the cannabis the consumers are acquiring. Usually what’s used for Rick Simpson oil is a strain with an inferior CBD content (and high THC), because that’s what the vast amount of marijuana is nowadays.

15. Where do you source your hemp and CBD from?

We have partners in Kentucky who grew a dedicated plot for us this year (2016) which is being used in our products now. mjna message boardWe also currently source from Europe but we’ll be changing that soon.

16. What kind of testing/analysis is performed on your products?

We have an industry leading quality control system, and we have third party laboratories analyze all of our hemp extracts and our final products for cannabinoid potency, heavy metals, bacterial and microbial life, mycotoxins (fungus), and pesticides.

17. What is CO2 extraction? What’s the difference between subcritical and supercritical CO2 extractions?

CO2 extraction is an extraction process that uses pressurized carbon dioxide to extract phyto-chemicals (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 in the world.

Many hemp and CBD companies boast about their supercritical CO2 extractions, but that’s actually only one (and perhaps an inferior) method of using a CO2 extraction machine. There are also subcritical CO2 extractions, and ‘mid-critical’, a general range between subcritical and supercritical. Subcritical (low temp, low pressure) CO2 extractions take more time and produce smaller yields than super-critical, but they retain the essential oils, terpenes, and other sensitive chemicals within the plant. Supercritical, on the other hand, is a high pressure and high temperature process that damages most terpenes and heat sensitive chemicals, but can extract much larger molecules such as lipids (omega 3 and 6), chlorophyll, and waxes. A truly full-spectrum CO2 extract includes first performing a subcritical extraction, separating the extracted oil, and then extracting the same plant material using supercritical pressure, and then homogenizing both oil extracts into one. In the essential oil industry, an extract made using this specific process is referred to as a CO2 Total.

18. What is the endocannabinoid system (ECS)?

“The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a group of endogenous cannabinoid receptors located in the mammalian brain and throughout the central and peripheral nervous systems, consisting of neuromodulatory lipids and their receptors.” Wikipedia

There are two main types of receptors in the ECS, CB1 and CB2. CB1 receptors are primarily located in the central nervous system and brains of mammals, and CB2 are generally found in the peripheral nervous system. There are two main cannabinoids mammals produce- 2AG and Anandamide (named after the Sanskrit term “ananda” which translates to “peace”).

For hundreds of millions of years every vertebrate on Earth has been equipped with this ECS, a crucial system in the body, and it has been known about in the scientific and medical communities since the 1980’s. However, it’s still not taught about in most medical schools.
