Marijuana can be used to decrease intraocular pressure, analgesia, anti-vomiting (antiemetic) effects and as an appetite stimulant.

Marijuana is not approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for medical use in the U.S. and remains classified as an illicit drug by the DEA. However, several states have adopted individual State Medical Marijuana Laws including: Alaska, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Maine, Maryland, Michigan, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Rhode Island, Washington, and Vermont.

What Are Dosages of Marijuana?

The United States (U.S.) Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) classifies marijuana as a Schedule 1 substance under the Controlled Substances Act (CSA). Schedule I drugs are recognized as having a high potential for abuse with insufficient evidence for safety and efficacy with no currently accepted medical use for treatment in the U.S.

Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), a component of marijuana, acts both centrally and peripherally on endogenous cannabinoid receptors. Activation of cannabinoid receptors affects serotonin release, increases catecholamines, inhibits parasympathetic activity and inhibits prostaglandin biosynthesis.

Marijuana is available under the following different brand names: Cannabis, Ganja, Hash, Hashish, Hemp, Mary Jane, Pot, Reefer, and Weed.

Remember that liquid THC is basically just highly-concentrated THC. It’s very much like highly-concentrated alcohol like Everclear: a little goes a long way, while a lot can have some serious consequences.

Because of the rather large amount of time it takes to feel the effects of liquid THC, it’s important to stick with one dosage amount until you figure out how everything works. We recommend starting with one dropper per 12 hours. See how long before your first feel the high, and then keep track of how long the high lasts. If you don’t feel a lot on one dropper-full, try two droppers next time. But again, be careful so you don’t get too much and have a bad trip. The highs produced by ingesting liquid THC (whether it’s through tinctures or edibles) can depend on your metabolism, body composition, and a whole host of other factors so what works for one person may not work (or work too well) for you. Start with a small dose and increase slowly from there.

The cold method involves chopping or tearing the cannabis plant into small pieces and then freezing it to preserve the integrity of the cannabinoids. The mixture is then shaken periodically, for 48 hours while the cannabis plant material steeps in the alcohol. At the end of the steeping period, the plant matter is strained out and discarded leaving the tincture behind. Here’s a step-by-step procedure.

What Are The Effects Of Liquid THC?

Keep in mind that when you use liquid THC, you’re not getting any of the other active ingredients in marijuana. The cannabidiol (CBD), cannabinol, cannabiverin, and cannabigerol (along with other compounds) are absent in liquid THC. Those additional ingredients have their own physiological and psychological effects that are not possible with liquid THC.

At the most extreme, there is the potential for a really bad trip. Because the THC is not tempered by CBD and other compounds, debilitating anxiety or paranoia can occur with liquid THC. In addition, the high concentration of THC has been known to induce vomiting and even unconsciousness. And when we say unconsciousness, we’re not talking about sleep.

Oral consumption is the more traditional, and most common, method for experiencing the effects of liquid THC. Start with 2-3 drops of the tincture administered sublingually (under the tongue). Because of the significant blood supply to the soft tissue under the tongue, absorption of the liquid THC will be quite fast. That said, onset of the psychoactive effects can take some time (see effects section below), so don’t take more thinking you’ll speed the process. That’s just a recipe for a bad trip.

The onset of effects with liquid THC depend on the way it is consumed. Taken under the tongue, effects can manifest in 15-45 minutes and reach their peak at about 90 minutes. Taken with food, effects take longer to manifest but can last from 2-4 hours.
