A Cannabis Sanctuary Without The Smoke

Review by Luca Belloiu

Jan 15, 2021 · 4 min read

Humboldt Apothecary’s Breathe tincture delivers a sense of wellness and introspection to recalibrate your day.

IN REVIEW: This gluten-free, targeted tincture is aimed at providing the relief you need without the negative consequences of combusting cannabis. In fact, not only does it give your lungs a break, it’s packed with botanicals that go a step further and help open your airways and promote pulmonary health. The 8.4mg of THC per dose offers you a flexible high that’s just as perfect for knocking out some chores as it is relegating yourself to the couch for some relaxation.

The Breathe tincture by Humboldt Apothecary offers a smoke-free way to transcend the rigors of everyday life. It’s a perfectly pleasant-tasting cannabis oil that contains 8.4mg THC per dose, and offers a fairly quick onset of effects. I felt a wave of relaxation and subtle euphoria within about 25 minutes. The composition of this tincture shows some real thoughtfulness in regards to wellness, specifically respiratory health. It contains several plant extracts such as Mullein, Yerba Santa, Elecampane, and Devil’s Club. All of which have been shown to help with breathing conditions like coughs, colds, asthma, and pneumonia.

This tincture is subtle enough to enjoy as a mixer for your favorite mocktail recipe.

Whether or not it could aid in the prevention or treatment of coronavirus isn’t clear, but with a potent blend of these specific oils, it certainly couldn’t hurt. In other words, if there’s any cannabis product that I would try in order to mitigate my chances of developing a bad case of Covid, I can’t see why it wouldn’t be this one. Especially since this is the only one that I’ve come across that actually targets the lungs as well as the mind.

This tincture is subtle enough to enjoy as a mixer for your favorite mocktail recipe, or you can simply add it to your morning cup of java or tea. I just went au natural and administered a dropper full under the tongue. The effects washed over me like a heavenly quilt weaved by magical elves. Upon closing my eyes, I felt like my couch was being slowly lifted and set adrift on a slow-moving stream. The aches and pains that’d been bothering me since I woke up were dialed down to an almost imperceptible level. I made a mental note of this effect for the next time I was in the need of some physical relief. As far as feeling more full of breath, I can’t say I noticed any improvement, but then again I wasn’t sick so I just figured all systems were a go. For me, this worked more as a reliable and welcomed recovery and relaxation tincture.

I had the added benefit of feeling focused enough to catch up on some reading. What with everything going on in this world, this simple act has become increasingly more difficult to do. It felt nice to just sit out on the porch and get lost in a story that’s not news related. This nurturing high allowed me to cobble together this time for myself, and as a result, build a greater appreciation for the little things. After a while, the gentle breezes and the sound of the neighbor’s wind chimes, along with approximately 10mg of cannabis tincture I ingested, proved to be too calming a force. I dozed off on the outdoor sofa, only to be rudely awoken by a FedEx man who spiked my wife’s many packages over our gate. It took me a good minute to get my bearings.

This would add a different layer of social lubrication to your next cocktail party.

While I never got to use this tincture as a mixer, I can see how this would add a different layer of social lubrication to your next cocktail party. If anything, this is a supremely laid back cannabis oil that should make you feel instantly comfortable, if not downright hospitable, towards whoever you meet. Whatever hang-ups I might have been harboring seemed to have been temporarily put on the backburner.

This is a tincture that has many possibilities and usages. I found it best for unwinding or treating low-grade aches and pains. The onset of this high provided some focused vibes that can be put to good use towards personal or professional projects, and it ultimately proved itself as a worthy, if unexpected, sleep aid. While I took this during the day, I see no reason why you wouldn’t give it a spin at night. As far as something that may ward off respiratory ailments, it’s yet to be seen, but the feeling of total-body wellness was something that could not be denied. A worthy high that doesn’t require filling your lungs with smoke—in times like these this tincture could be worth its weight in gold.
