As cannabis becomes legal across the globe, more and more people are incorporating cannabis tinctures into their wellness routines*. Whether you’re adding a CBD tincture to your tea before bed or dropping a THC tincture under your tongue before a hike, the possibilities are endless. It can take some experimentation, but the key is to find the appropriate ratio of cannabinoids and the right serving size for you.
If you’re a novice when it comes to cannabis, it’s tough to understand where to begin. Unlike alcohol, your tolerance for cannabis is not dependent on body mass. Each individual is equipped with an endocannabinoid system that helps regulate the effects of cannabis based on the number of cannabinoid receptors available.
We’ve created a guide to understanding your endocannabinoid system, choosing the right cannabis tincture and determining the proper serving size for you.
Finding the Right Cannabis Tincture for You
Cannabinoid ratios refer to the proportions of CBD and THC in the tincture you’re using. These numbers are usually displayed as CBD:THC or THC:CBD. CBD-dominant ratios are common for supporting overall wellness and mood. A THC-dominant ratio will cause the more traditional “high” associated with cannabis. The inclusion of CBD into this ratio will help to mitigate the psychoactive effects of THC.

Terpenes are the aromatic molecules that are responsible for the smells and flavors of cannabis strains. These compounds also have their own properties and benefits that complement cannabinoids. Terpenes alter your body’s dopamine and serotonin levels to synergistically enhance the performance of cannabinoids. For example, myrcene is known for its energizing and uplifting properties, which is why it’s commonly found in sativa strains of cannabis.

Determining the Proper Serving of a Cannabis Tincture
So you’ve chosen the cannabinoid ratio and terpene profile that’s right for you- how much should you take? When establishing your preferred serving of a cannabis tincture, it’s important to consider both your personal tolerance as well as the bioavailability of the tincture you’re using.

Different vehicles for using cannabis provide results in different ways. Nano emulsified CBD/THC tinctures and beverages are among the fastest and most bioavailable methods for consuming.
Our bodies generally do a good job of regulating the effects of cannabis. When you use cannabis frequently, you begin to become desensitized to its effects. This is what is commonly known as tolerance. Unlike alcohol, your tolerance for cannabis is not dependent on body mass. As your endocannabinoid system adapts to the presence of cannabis in your body, you will have fewer CB1 & CB2 receptors available for cannabinoids to bind to.
No matter your experience level, it’s always a good idea to start low and go slow. It’s typically suggested that users start with a small amount of cannabis, wait approximately 2 hours and increase their serving as needed for the desired effect. This could require some trial and error so we’ve created a cheat sheet for you to refer to when measuring CBD tinctures for yourself.
Finding the perfect serving of cannabis requires a certain degree of trial and error. It’s important to check in with how your body is responding to different ratios and servings of cannabis tinctures. You may consider keeping a journal that tracks your progress with different products. Apps like LucidGreen make it easy to quickly scan the product, view test results and track your servings right on your phone so you can quickly determine what works best for your needs.
