Then last fall, I used Fairwinds Deep Sleep after a friend recommended it. I was skeptical – until I was sawing logs about 30 minutes later.
This tincture was the first I’d ever tried that delivered what it promised. Even though it contained a considerable amount of THC, it didn’t make me high – it just made me feel relaxed and, yes, very sleepy.
For example, the Fairwinds Deep Sleep Tincture contains herbal extracts that assist in producing drowsiness.
Again, I was skeptical, until about 15 minutes after placing a couple of droppers full of the fiery-hot tincture under my tongue. All I can say is – wow! Not only was I pleasantly warm from the tincture’s spice – I was stoned, quickly and efficiently.
“We’re always very focused on making the most effective products out there,” said Logan Alden, director of sales for Fairwinds, which is based in Vancouver, Wash.
John Nelson is a longtime journalist, having worked at major news operations in Spokane, Memphis and Seattle. He now works as a freelance journalist, writing about outdoors recreation, marijuana and recreational vehicles.
And while Fairwinds offers a number of recreational products, it remains focused on “cannabis as medicine,” Alden said. “We are primarily a wellness company.”
“Washington doesn’t allow vertical integration in its cannabis business, but we are as vertically integrated as we can be,” Alden said.
Local journalism is essential.
When I first tried cannabis tinctures a few years ago, I wrote them off as being ineffective.
Most of Fairwinds’ tinctures also use avocado oil, which helps the body absorb it. Fairwinds was the first to use avocado oil, and now competitors “are copying us,” Alden said.
OK, Fairwinds was two-for-two. Clearly, this company knew what it was doing when it came to cannabis tinctures.
Fairwinds is known for quality, Alden said, with its own indoor-grown cannabis used to create full-spectrum oils “rich in terpenes and completely free of residual solvents,” according to the company website. All of the grow and science takes place at the Fairwinds facility, an example of the company’s commitment to controlling its processes from plant to finished product.
Then I tried another Fairwinds product because of its quirkiness – Sriracha THC Tincture. The little tincture container is a hoot, looking like a mini version of the ubiquitous hot chili sauce bottles that feature a strutting rooster on the label.
That would be their new line of inhalers, which Alden said has been wildly popular. The inhaler looks like any other medical inhaler, delivering its product without heat “which preserves the terpene and cannabinoid content in its purest form,” according to Fairwinds.
Besides its state-regulated cannabis products with THC, the company also offers a line of CBD-only products.
“It will bring you a quick high and you don’t get any exhale,” Alden said. “As far as discreteness goes, it can’t be beaten.”
Part of the Fairwinds difference goes beyond cannabis. Each tincture offers other ingredients that help create its powerful effects.
Fairwinds’ citrus tincture is a great way to quickly dose yourself on-the-go, as the small bottle fits right in your pocket. Just a couple drops of this potent tincture under your tongue will likely be enough to get you going soon enough. The tangy citrus flavor will freshen up your tongue in time for your whole body to become rocked with a warm high, courtesy of Fairwinds.
