Trulieve’s TruTincture Drops are similar in texture, size, and appearance to lozenges and were developed using the same TruNanoTechnology (TruNano) as the TruNano Tinctures. For patients who may struggle with titration or the flavor of the tinctures, these solid Drops are a viable alternative.
Named for its nano-sized particles, the Drops offer the best delivery system for a nano-based product, resulting in an increased resonance time. We strongly recommend treating this product similarly to a lozenge to ensure maximum absorption; hold in the mouth, agitating or “swishing” the product around, and do not chew or swallow. The Drop should dissolve within 15 minutes and take effect within the hour.
Q: Is this product an edible? When will edibles be available?
Edibles are not currently approved by the Florida Department of Health, though we are eagerly awaiting rules and guidelines. This product is similar to a lozenge or “cough drop,” and is therefore not meant to be eaten.
Q: Can you treat this product like an edible? / What happens if I accidentally eat it instead of letting it dissolve? Will it still work?
We do not recommend treating this product as an edible. The TruTincture Drops are similar to a tincture and should be taken sublingually for maximum absorption and increased resonance. If the Drops are accidentally eaten, they will still offer relief, though at a much more reduced rate.
Q: Is this product stable? What is the shelf life?
The Trulieve TruTincture Drops are stable, though we recommend patients do not keep for longer than a year. Though not required, it is recommended to be kept in a cool or refrigerated space. As long as the product is not stored in a hot car or a space above 150° F for several hours or days, it will remain in a stable condition.
Q: What is TruNano Technology?
TruNano Technology refers to our specialized nanoemulsion technique, a method that is already ubiquitous in the pharmaceutical industry. Through nanoemulsion, individual particles are made to be incredibly small yet stable, allowing for one of the most effective methods of cannabinoid delivery available.
Q: Will this product be strain specific?
No, this product is strictly made from cannabinoids.
Q: What flavors are available?
Presently, the TruTincture Drops are available in a menthol eucalyptus flavor.
Q: How will this medication be dispensed?
The TruTincture Drops will be deducted from a patient’s medical cannabis oral or sublingual milligrams.
Q: How quickly will a patient feel the effects of the TruTincture Drops? How long do the effects last for?
When taken in the recommended oral/sublingual route, the TruTincture Drop should fully dissolve within 10-15 minutes. Onset should be within 15-30 minutes after the Drop fully dissolves, with effects lasting from 1-4 hours.
Q: Does this product contain soy, animal derivatives, latex, gluten, or dairy products?
The TruTincture Drops contain soy lecithin, but no animal derivatives, latex, gluten, or dairy.
Q: Does this medication contain sugar or maltodextrin?
This product contains two sugar substitutes: Isomalt and Acesulfame potassium. Patients should consult their physician, but these ingredients are not known to have adverse effects on diabetics.
Q: What is the benefit to the TruTincture Drop over the original TruNano Tincture?
The TruTincture Drops are a non-liquid product. Since it is intended to be held in the mouth, the increased oral residence time can lead to increased oral/sublingual absorption, making this the optimum product for increased bioavailability.
