Cannabis should be functional, approachable and enjoyable
Medicine Box believes that cannabis should be functional, but it should also be approachable and enjoyable. With that in mind, we’ve put together several resources that will guide you through the experience of mindfully consuming cannabis. We hope this helps you get the most out of your medicine.
What Makes Our Equanimity Tincture Unique?
We start with an appellation specific cultivar of Nevada County, CA sungrown cannabis that is extracted into a full spectrum oil containing a range of cannabinoids and terpenes.
While the majority of tinctures on the market are blended with only cannabis oil and a carrier; Equanimity is formulated with our soil to oil blend of: whole plant cannabis oil and its terpenes, fractionated coconut oil, valerian, skullcap, catnip, musa acuminata, lemon balm, chamomile, licorice root, & hawthorne berry.

Fractionated Coconut Oil
Clean soluble carrier for other active ingredients promoting rapid metabolism. Great source of medium chain triglycerides and fatty acids. Natural preservative for a long shelf life.
It’s been studied for its anti-anxiety effects, and it also acts as a mild sedative.
Yet another one of the many banana plants around the world, this one has the same high amounts of potassium, vitamin B6 and magnesium. There’s a few other wellness uses its consumers choose it for - think increased melatonin and blood sugar levels and antibacterial properties amongst them.
For its anti anxiolytic effects. It’s also been examined for its anti-inflammatory abilities as well as for its possible reduction of muscle spasms.
Considered a folk remedy for anxiety, calm, and relaxation. Like skullcap, it has also been remarked by its users for its sedative qualities.
Back to calm and restful, we return to Valerian, a favored dietary supplement for those looking for better sleep. It also promotes antianxiolytic moods and can relieve mild nervous tension.
Just like the willow tree, portions of the hawthorn tree are reaching deep into the rhizosphere to bring something of value for those of us up top. What’s possible: low blood pressure, healthy blood circulation and perhaps even heart-elevating properties. Science, as always, is just starting to catch up.
A non-citrus herb grown in Southern Europe and heading eastward. Those in the world of CAM (complementary and alternative medicine) know it well for its longtime use as a sleep aid. Not surprising are the knock-on effects that come from its restful qualities - lowered stress and anxiety along with improved mood and cognitive ability.
It’s a great detoxifier that soothes the stomach. We use this to harmonize the other ingredients.
