Features of hemp tinctures in industrial production
Pharmacists began to actively use marijuana for medicinal purposes in the late 19th – early 20th century. It was originally made on the basis of alcohol, which is an excellent solvent.
And at present, it is alcohol that is considered the best means of extracting cannabinoids. Tinctures made from cannabis leaves, buds, and cannabis stems, which are created in pharmaceutical companies, very often no longer contain alcohol. Almost all of it evaporates – usually no more than 5% remains.
At the same time, stevia is added to the tincture – a natural vegetable sweetener, which improves the taste of the medicinal product.
