Dewaxed and Decarboxylated Medical Cannabis Tincture:
All dewaxed and decarboxylated medical cannabis Tinctures utilize dewaxed and decarboxylated Medical Cannabis Extracts in its formulations. (Read more about dewaxed and decarboxylated medical cannabis extract)
Cannabis Extract by Nature is quite thick and viscous like honey, if we bottle pure extract, dropper fails to suck and deliver medicine, and most of the medicine remains in bottle, and it becomes really difficult to measure its intake.
It is quite clear a medium is required to make liquid extract less thicker, options are water and oil , Water needs to be negated since extract is oil based . Now some oil is required to be mixed with Cannabis Extract as Carrier oil. Just a few years back Raw coconut oil, Raw Cannabis seeds oil , Olive oil , Grape seed oil were used quite frequently. We at Indogenix too used Cannabis seeds oil as carrier oil in past , but we found out that it works great in Winters but its properties ( ayurvedic ) are hot by nature , that makes cannabis Tinctures little unsuitable for hotter climates . Similarly each of other oils had some issues or other which prevented us to make a standard product.
Recently there has been good amount of study on MCT oil. This oil is actually an extract from the raw coconut oil only, this MCT oil has good amount of advantages, in the sense that it increases bio availability of Cannabis Tincture in the body to a very great extent. Bio availability means absorption power in the body, i.e. one milligram of cannabinoids if taken with MCT oil have higher chances of merging in blood quickly as compared to any other oils .This is mainly because of Triglyceride property presence in MCT oil.
Now the MCT oil manufacturing process is little trickier and finding Pure MCT oil is a challenge. MCT oil manufacturers many a times use 70% palm oil and 30% of Coconut oil to extract MCT, this oil is definitely not a medicinal grade oil to be utilized with any Cannabis Tincture at all. Hence we at Indogenix manufacture our own MCT oil from organic coconut shells. We have realized the efficacy of medicine increasing via feedback from patients.
The ratio of Cannabis Extract & MCT oil decides the potency of the Tinctures. Our Highest potency Tincture in 15 ml bottle is 1500mg, meaning 1500mg of cannabinoids are present in the 15 ml bottle with a solution of Dewaxed & decarboxylated Cannabis extract and MCT oil.
