Cannabis has been used for human consumption for 12,000 years, and has been used by humans for every conceivable reason since the beginning of civilization. It has been known to heal ailments as diverse as insomnia, drug abuse, and cancer. As a result, it has been legal in most countries across the globe for over 100 years.Tincture, for those not familiar with it, is an extract of cannabis in a liquid medium. Liquid weed, that’s it! It is a very discreet way to take the medication and can be used sublingually (under the tongue) for quick relief or added to a drink, mashed potatoes or anything else to create an immediate consumption. In the past, cannabis-based medicines were used in this way, and nowadays this method is rapidly coming back into fashion (a quick search on cannabis tincture will bring up a host of useful articles and recipes). If you’ve been to the Washington DC cannabis scene even once in the past year, like A Dab Before Christmas, you’ve probably tried Dr. Elixirs. Trichome. He generously hands out a drop to everyone at his table to get the party started. I’ve tried infusions from District Growers and Holistic Remedies from DC Dispensaries, and they had little to no effect (I felt like a bit of a junkie after I lowered the recommended dosage and put half a bottle of Holistic Blue Dream in my tea), but I attributed it to my horribly high tolerance for food. Honestly, I have talked to people who liked these products, but after taking the Dr. Trichome tincture, I realized that my problem with Dispensary infusions was the potency. Well, okay, more like half of my high tolerance, half of his low power. Full disclosure: I haven’t tried Abatin’s new cannabis oil, which allows you to make your own at home (or for external application). Dr. Trichome tinctures come in tinted jars with pipettes in the lid, just like at Washington pharmacies. I received two pieces from him for review. The premium tonic is made from Girl Scout cookies that have been soaked in grain alcohol for three months. The largest bottle was the Platinum Kush, which had been aged in glycerin for a month. Let’s talk about fashion first. Grain alcohol should not be taken sublingually. Seriously, though. It burns like hell out of this hot place. And you don’t need it. The three month cure is strong enough even for me to take it as food, just add a full drop to a drink. Personally, I use four, directly on the tongue and rinse them off with baking soda. The effect occurs after about 30 minutes. I love Girl Scout Cookies in infusion form – it’s an active body buzz that’s also a subtle mood enhancer, making it a great pre-workout choice, even if it’s just a brisk walk around the nation’s capital or attending a local cannabis event. You can take glycerin under your tongue. The flavor is what you would expect from a liquid herb, but mild enough to be palatable. Platinum Kush is not as strong as GSC, so I took four drops using the stronger sublingual method. I flip through it for sixty seconds to make sure I catch every possible particle of the drug before swallowing the rest. Platinum Kush infusion creates a calm rock in the body that relaxes both the muscles and the mind. I sleep better with it at night, but it’s clear enough to use during the day when my back is bothering me. My preferred method for Dr. Trichome – take it with a joint or a pill. I need more psychoactivity from the drugs to regulate various mental lows, but I feel more rested in the morning after combining Platinum Kush tincture with sleepy indica flowers, and more physically alert by pairing CSG with an intoxicating sativa (or two, I don’t care). Whether you’re looking for a physical pick-me-up to relieve your aches and pains during the day or to perk you up at night, Gentleman recommends you turn to Dr. Trichome!
