Definition - What does Liquid THC mean?
Liquid THC is a cannabis concentrate or tincture that is a consumable fluid with tetrahydrocannabinol levels as high as 90 per cent.
Liquid THC can be consumed in several ways. It can be applied under the tongue with a dropper, inhaled by vaping, or absorbed orally by spraying into the mouth. It may also be incorporated into other consumables.
Liquid THC does not contain CBD. As such, it is not meant to be used medicinally for the treatment of physical ailments like seizures or inflammation.
Hydrolife explains Liquid THC
Liquid THC is produced in much the same way as other cannabis concentrates: by adding solid cannabis to a liquid, such as alcohol, oil, vinegar, or glycerin. After being steeped in the liquid, the valuable THC is extracted from the solid plant matter.
Liquid THC can be derived from any strain of cannabis with varying levels of THC. It is extracted primarily via alcohol extraction, but there are other extraction methods that may be used. In all methods, cannabis is steeped in a liquid and then after the appropriate amount of time, the solids are strained out.
Extraction to make liquid THC can be done at room temperature, requiring several weeks of steeping; at cold temperatures taking several days; or at high temperatures requiring only hours.
High temperature steeping can be risky, as the alcohol can catch fire during the heating phase.
