Looking for a great way to introduce cannabis into your life? Smoking, vaping and eating it too much? Try Humboldt Apothecary’s take on one of the oldest forms of healthcare—tinctures.
The company makes it safe and easy to get a variety of results with their line of THC, CBD, and THC:CBD tinctures. Find your perfect formula!
Nestled in Humboldt County’s redwoods, this female owned-and-operated company has over 25 years of combined herbalist experience that’s reflected in their distinct, award-winning tinctures. They’re not only made with trusted ingredients and organic, sungrown cannabis, but also with specific uses in mind.
The ladies of Humboldt Apothecary implement the latest research and newest technological innovations to blend perfectly potent and balanced recipes that heal MMJ patients and recreational consumers alike.
They only use the highest quality ingredients, carefully selecting and blending the best sun grown cannabis and organic medicinal herbs to synergistically increase their tinctures’ effectiveness. The CO2 extraction method keeps them pure while retaining the plant’s flavor, terpenes, and cannabinoids.
All their cannabis elixirs use sustainable and environmentally safe practices, so don’t worry about inconsistent dosing or harmful ingredients.
Humboldt Apothecary creates ten different tinctures each tailored to treat specific conditions by combining various ingredients and cannabinoid ratios.
They’re a low calorie, low sugar, and gluten-free way to conveniently dose all day long; as well as free from artificial colors, flavors and preservatives. Plus, each bottle is small and sturdy enough to put in your purse or backpack.
Begin with five drops to a half dropper full (as suggested) under the tongue or, if it tastes too strong, add to water, juice, tea or smoothies! Experiment with your own recipes or start with Humboldt’s. Remember, it’ll take one to two hours to feel the tincture’s full effects.
Deep Sleep treats exactly what you think it would. Recommended to use against sleeplessness and to support deep and enduring sleep in a non-addictive, gentle way.
