 Here is a few Blogs written by the owners Chaz & Shantel Cornellier about the industry and things they have experienced or learned while owning a cannabis delivery service in Chico, Ca in 2017 under Prop 215 and then moving to Sacramento to own a State Liscensed Delivery, C9-0000003-LIC, immediately in 2018. It has been a crazy ride and Chaz loves to explain what the market is doing and how he sees the company doing in the near future.

Navigating Cannabis Tinctures – THC, CBD, and the Art of Getting It Right

Hey there, fellow cannabis connoisseurs! Whether you're a seasoned stoner or a greenhorn looking to dip your toes into the world of weed, chances are you've come across cannabis tinctures. Now, I know what you're thinking – "What in the name of Snoop Dogg is a tincture, and why should I care?" Well, dear reader, grab your rolling papers and settle in, because we're about to embark on a journey through the highs and lows of cannabis tinctures, THC, CBD, and everything in between.


Tinctures 101 – What's the Deal?

Before we dive into the nitty-gritty of THC and CBD ratios, let's get the basics straight. A cannabis tincture is like the James Bond of weed – it's discreet, potent, and it gets the job done without making a big fuss. Imagine a tiny bottle filled with a magic potion that promises relaxation, pain relief, and maybe even a touch of euphoria. Sounds good, right? Well, that's a tincture for you!
Cannabis tinctures are essentially liquid extracts of cannabis. They're made by soaking cannabis flowers (or other plant parts) in a solvent, like alcohol or glycerin, which breaks down the plant compounds and captures all that green goodness. Once strained, you're left with a concentrated elixir of cannabinoids, terpenes, and other bioactive compounds. It's like Mother Nature's own cocktail.

THC, CBD, and the Ratios Game

Now that we've got tinctures on the table, let's talk about the two main players in the cannabis world – THC and CBD. Think of them as Batman and Robin, but with a little more chill. THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) is the psychoactive compound that gives you that classic "high" feeling, while CBD (Cannabidiol) is the mellow counterpart that won't have you scaling rooftops.
But here's the kicker – not all cannabis tinctures are created equal. The ratio of THC to CBD can drastically change the effects, making it crucial to choose the right one for your needs.

The Highs and Lows of THC-Dominant Tinctures

Picture this: you've had a rough day at work, and you just want to kick back, relax, and forget about your annoying boss's voice. Enter THC-dominant tinctures, the superhero you need.

The 1:0 Ratio – Straight Up THC

When you see a tincture with a 1:0 THC-to-CBD ratio, it's like the weed version of the Bat Signal. This means it's all about the high. It's perfect for those looking for a potent, euphoria-inducing experience. Just be prepared for that stoner giggle fit and possibly some serious Netflix binge-watching.

The 10:1 Ratio – A Balanced Buzz

If you're not quite ready for the full-blown THC experience but still want a bit of that buzz, consider a tincture with a 10:1 THC-to-CBD ratio. It's like Batman with a sidekick – you get the high, but it's a bit more subdued. This ratio can be excellent for managing pain, stress, or anxiety without feeling like you're floating in outer space.

CBD to the Rescue – Low THC, High CBD Tinctures

Now, let's talk about CBD-dominant tinctures. These are like the Robin to THC's Batman – they're the supportive sidekick, ready to swoop in and save the day without stealing the spotlight.

The 0:1 Ratio – Pure CBD Goodness

A tincture with a 0:1 THC-to-CBD ratio is like a warm hug from your grandma. It won't get you high, but it'll help with a variety of medical conditions. CBD is known for its potential to alleviate pain, reduce anxiety, and even ease seizures in some cases. It's like a Swiss Army knife for wellness.

The 1:10 Ratio – The Calming Combo

If you want a hint of THC's relaxation without the overwhelming high, consider a 1:10 THC-to-CBD tincture. It's like Batman teaching Robin some cool tricks without letting him don the cape just yet. This ratio can be great for managing chronic pain, inflammation, and anxiety while keeping your feet on the ground.

Finding the Perfect Match

So, now that you know the score with THC and CBD ratios, how do you find the perfect tincture for your needs? It's like dating – you need to know what you're looking for!
Know Your Goal: Are you seeking relaxation, pain relief, or a mind-bending adventure through space and time? Knowing your goal will help you choose the right ratio.
Start Low and Slow: If you're new to tinctures, start with a low dose and gradually increase it until you find your sweet spot. No one wants to be the guy who thought he could fly off a building after one drop.
Consult a Budtender: Dispensary staff are like the Yodas of the cannabis world. They can guide you toward the perfect tincture based on your needs and preferences.
Experiment: Finding the ideal THC-to-CBD ratio may take some trial and error. Don't be discouraged if you don't strike gold on your first try.

The Final Toke

In the world of cannabis tinctures, the THC-to-CBD ratio is your compass, guiding you toward the experience you desire. Whether you're chasing the ultimate high or seeking natural relief for a medical condition, there's a tincture out there with your name on it.
So, fellow cannabis adventurers, remember this – cannabis tinctures are like a box of chocolates. You never quite know what you're gonna get, but with a little knowledge and experimentation, you can find the perfect sweet spot. Just don't forget to have some snacks on hand – those munchies can be relentless!
With that, I'll leave you to explore the wonderful world of THC, CBD, and tinctures. May your highs be euphoric, and your lows be few and far between. Stay chill, stay green, and happy tincture-toking, my friends!
