Binske Tincture Review

Today’s strain review is not a strain at all! The product we will be discussing today is Binske Lemon Olive Oil tincture. Binske is a Colorado based company that started off making edibles but quickly expanded. Today, Binske sells a variety of products including edibles, tincture, and whole-flower. Binske recently became the largest marijuana brand in the world reaching more then 50 million people worldwide. I recently bought Binske’s tincture at my local Trulieve. Admittedly, I was skeptical, as this was my first time trying tincture. The product itself is a 30ml 300mg THC bottle with a 1ml dropper. According to the box, 1 drop of tincture is approximately .6 mg of THC, and the dropper itself can hold up to 10mg of THC at a time. The two methods of consumption are sublingually (under the tongue) or traditional edible style. When using tincture sublingually, the arterial blood supply under your tongue absorbs the THC rather quickly. This results in a high that you can feel within 5 minutes, and a peak which occurs around the 30-45 minute mark. The second mode of consumption is orally. You can put it in a drink, or on some food to experience a traditional edible high. This method allows the THC to be processed by your liver which turns it into 11-Hydroxy-THC, 3-5 times stronger than ordinary THC. On days where I wanted a quick high, I would place around 20-30mg under my tongue for 1 minute and 15 seconds and then swallow. The results were a wonderful head high that lasted for well over an hour. When orally consumed, the same basic sativa head high was felt with more of a relaxing body sensation. I made fish tacos and put a few drops of the olive oil on the fish right after it came off the grill. The taste and high were both mellow yet wonderful. All in all, I would recommend this product to anyone looking to spice up their cooking cabinet or trying cleaner ways to get high. Let us know if you’ve tried any Binske products!
