QUESTIONS ARE GREAT
We often receive commonly asked questions from all users. Here are our most frequently asked questions and answers.
THE BENEFITS OF CANNABIS TINCTURES
Cannabis tinctures offer a long list of benefits. Here are a few of the benefits you can enjoy whether you take a THC tincture for pleasure or a CBD tincture to relieve pain:
• You feel the effects quickly
• You can easily control the amount of tincture you take
• Cannabis tinctures are discreet (meaning you can take them anywhere, in any setting)
• Tinctures are safe
• Tinctures have a long shelf life when stored properly
A CBD tincture can be used to treat:
• Low appetite
• Nausea and vomiting
• Hyperglycemia (high blood sugar)
• Chronic pain
• Artery blockage
• Bacterial growth
• Cancer cell growth
• Bone degeneration
• Muscle spasms
Couple the above benefits with the safe, fast-acting, easy-to-dose nature of the tincture itself, and you’ve got a potent recipe for medical relief of the toughest symptoms.
BEST PRACTICES FOR DOSING
DOSING When it comes to cannabis, there is no “one size fits all” approach to product and use. Everything starts with your personal physical and emotional constitution. Rosette Wellness suggests that you maintain a personal JOURNAL of your dosing process, the experience and your effects, each day.
As the old edibles adage goes: You can always take more, but you can never take less.
So we’ve prepared a step-by-step approach to MICRODOSING 101;
Step 1: Preparation; Always have room temperature water available as some strains can cause dry mouth. And in the event of any discomfort from the experience with Cannabis, others have found that eating a small dose of Dark Chocolate 70% Cacao+, may actually decrease and minimize the “high” effects, after dosing.
Step 2: Always, always, always start low with “small droplets of the tincture”. A low dose is 1-2mg, 2.5mg at the most. The label provided will include each dropper of the tinctures “value of milligrams”.
Step 3: Have an alarm available to journal the effects of your experience. We ask all first time users, novice and our seniors to always set your alarm for an hour and a half, after the initial dosing. Seriously, set the alarm, because you might forget.
Step 4: As you develop your journal, think about what your goal is. Are you trying to relax or rid yourself of anxiety? Are you trying to sleep better? When your alarm goes off 90 minutes later, ask yourself these questions, and answer them honestly. How do I feel? Do I feel high? Do I feel the way I want to feel? Do I feel like I can function?
Step 5: If you feel unchanged after 90 minutes, you know that wasn’t enough. Your next day or next time frame of dosing, try adding a few more milligrams/droplets (not full dropper). So increase slowly, and remember to set your alarm again, for another 90 minutes to evaluate your experience.
Step 6: If you are using cannabis to help sleep better, please note this is an exercise that will require your due diligence. Other consumers stated that they microdosed 2.5 mg an hour before bedtime. When doing this for your first time, do it in the comforts of your home. When you wake up later that night or the next day, take stock: Did you notice a difference at all? Check in with yourself in the morning: Do you feel any better than you normally do? If not, you may want to try adding more or less the next night.
Step 7: Each dosing experience should help you to determine what your comfortable measure is, “your sweet spot” once developed should allow you to create a customized plan for your condition. The journal, alarm and dark chocolate recovery suggestions, are strongly recommended for every person using Cannabis as a medicine. We encourage you to use responsibly.
THE BENEFITS OF SUBLINGUAL (ORAL) ADMINISTRATION
The major advantage of the sublingual administration method (orally, under the tongue) is that the medicine is rapidly absorbed through the sublingual artery, your body’s main blood supply to your tongue. This artery arises from the external carotid artery, which, in turn, is close to the internal carotid artery. This allows the medicine to quickly reach your brain.
Additionally, the tincture doesn’t come in contact with the acids in your stomach like other edibles do. That fact alone serves to keep many of the beneficial chemicals in your cannabis tincture more complete and readily available for use in your body.
Sublingual absorption effectively removes a step — digestion — that can have slight but destructive consequences to the chemical makeup of the cannabis you put into your body.
HEMP VS CANNABIS
Our consistent approach to our manufacturing process is we are extremely focused in the delivery of the same consistency with every single droplet of our tincture. Every step in the process has been considered for its safety, green growing principles, eco-centric, organic cultivation practices. Our cannabis products start by organically, sustainable and sun grown chemovars (strains), we use only top shelf cannabis flower, NEVER HEMP, we value the high terpene and sub-cannabinoid content and process by using “true whole plant extracts” without breaking the plant bonds.
The difference between Cannabis and Hemp is extreme, the confusion stems from the fact that they are just both part of the Cannabis family. Hemp is completely different from marijuana in its function, cultivation and application. First of all its an industrial plant, just like the trees in the forest, but more versatile. However, it is our firm belief that Hemp should never be considered or used as a medicine, for human and pets.
The Difference Between Hemp and Marijuana

construction, plastic, etc.

PROPER STORING OF TINCTURES
Tinctures will last for many years when stored properly. We recommend storing in a cool dark location, standing upright. The long shelf life means you can safely use your tincture for extended care. We do caution that if the tincture is left unattended in direct heat or sunlight, the THC within may be activated, and the effects may change.
BENEFITS OF CANNABIS FOR SENIORS
Senior use of cannabis is becoming the fastest growing demographic across the country. From 2006 to 2013, cannabis use among seniors increased by 250 percent. Four of five doctors approve of Cannabis and more than 90 percent of Cannabis patients say that it has helped treat their conditions.
Cannabis has not been approved by the Federal Drug Administration yet, mainly because there have not been enough clinical trials done on a wide enough scale to prove the plant’s medical benefits. Although, history reveals that Cannabis has actually been used as a medical treatment for thousands of years.
According to the National Council of Aging, One of the primary uses of cannabis is to help cancer patients, especially when they are going
through rounds of chemotherapy. Some studies have shown that cannabis can help with nausea and vomiting in chemotherapy patients. When dealing with palliative care, especially for patients with cancer, a study points out that most patients (more than 60 percent) experience both of these symptoms rather than one or the other, so Cannabis can help relieve two symptoms (and potentially many more) at once.
In 2014, there was a preclinical study published in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease that analyzed the “potential therapeutic effects of THC on the disease.” Researchers introduced THC to beta-amyloids, which are clumps of proteins that build up on the brain and are one of the leading signs of the presence of Alzheimer’s. They found that THC helped slow the advancement of these beta-amyloids, and the results from the study “strongly suggest that THC could be a potential therapeutic treatment option for Alzheimer’s disease through multiple functions and pathways.”
The health benefits include; pain and arthritis relief, glaucoma, cachexia, anxiety and more. Using our tinctures is a simpler approach of administering Cannabis as a medicine, it’s measured, dose specific, safe and tested, discreet and easy to use. Best if use sublingually, under the tongue, or it can be used in any food or beverage, which is very convenient.
Cannabis is also considered safer and more cost-efficient and it doesn’t carry the side effects as with pharmaceuticals. We do recommend you consult with your medical doctor to make sure this is a safe approach for your condition.

BENEFITS OF CANNABIS FOR PETS
Our pet tinctures are made with the same consistency and manufacturing principles as our award-winning human tinctures. They’re effective and pets really LOVE the taste. Plus we use 100% Cannabis flower, never HEMP as we believe our pets deserve the safest, tested, cannabis medicine. We’ve spent over 10 years in pet treatment therapies that range from cancer to hip dysplasia, arthritis, pain free and end of life treatments, IBD, hot spots, wounds, anxiety (especially on July 4 th ) and more. We treat small pets and large animals such as livestock and horses.
In a recent American Veterinarian News Release, California will be the first state whose veterinarians are legally allowed to talk to clients about cannabis use for pets. But they will not be allowed to dispense or administer cannabis-based products.
The legislation, signed by Gov. Jerry Brown in late September, goes into effect on January 1, 2019 and prevents state regulators from penalizing a veterinarian for discussing the therapeutic use of cannabis in animals. FOX 10’s Anita Roman reported that Dogs, cats, even horses seem to be the newest customer base for medical Cannabis. Cannabis-based products are being used to treat everything from anxiety to allergies, epilepsy and cancer.
ARE YOUR TINCTURES VEGAN?
Yes. All of our tinctures are vegan except for the pet specific tinctures (No. 20 Large & Small Pet and the No. 1 Large & Small Pet) which have some wild salmon oil in them.
IS THERE ETHANOL OR ALCOHOL IN YOUR TINCTURES?
CAN MCT OIL STAIN?
