My friends and I like to get together for a girls excursion every month.
Living in Portland, there are always fun activities available to us.
Last month, the six of us booked a sunset dinner cruise along the Willamette River. The trip offered amazing views of the Portland skyline and the best local landmarks. It lasted two-and-a-half hours, included live music and provided a really delicious meal. It was an extremely relaxing and enjoyable cruise. We were able to chat, sip wine and appreciate the scenery. The boat passed under Hawthorne, Ross Island and Marquam Bridge. We got a nice look at Sellwood riverfront park, Waverley Country Club and Elk Rock Island. Depending on the excursion, my friends and I like to partake in some cannabis to enhance the experience. We usually make a stop at the downtown Portland dispensary and load up on some high THC percentage strains. While we all enjoy smoking pre-rolls or taking advantage of the convenience of vapes, we couldn’t use any inhalation methods on the boat. We needed something more discreet. We considered edibles but didn’t want to load up our purses with gummies, cookies or candies that might melt. After quite a bit of debate, we chose a tincture to share. The advantage of a tincture is the compact packaging. The tiny bottle tucks easily into a pocket and includes a dropper for easy dosing. All it takes is a couple of drops under the tongue to achieve quick onset of effects. There is no extra gear required. Consumption creates no mess, waste, smoke, ash or odors. Tinctures are one of the more discreet methods and yet provide high ratios of cannabinoids and terpenes. They are available in a wide variety of flavors and strains and offer a long shelf-life.
