Delta-8 & CBD THC Tinctures FAQ
A tincture is a liquid form of cannabis extracts. Originally, tinctures were made using ethanol extraction and have been broadly used for their health benefits and relatively fast-onset time (usually within 45 minutes).
Our tinctures are extracted from hemp before being further refined to isolate and concentrate delta 8 THC. Unlike CBD tinctures, delta 8 THC products are mildly active and thus should be taken with caution.
Most users also report a delay in the effects compared to CBD tinctures. Sublingual CBD can take 20–30 minutes to kick in, while some of the user reports are talking up to a 2-hour delay. As a result, always start at the low end, gradually increasing the dosage to determine your tolerance and avoid the side effects.
Tinctures are extracts of plants dissolved into a liquid solution that is usually quite thick, or high in viscosity. Cannabinoid tinctures are measured by “milligram of cannabinoid per milliliter,” making them easier for controlling doses, especially if you’re taking a small amount. Note, the effectiveness can differ whether you’re taking it sublingually, meaning applied under the tongue for a short period (usually 30-60 seconds before swallowing), or if mixed into a drink. Popular tincture products on the market include isolated tinctures, like our CBN Tincture, which contain just one cannabinoid and full spectrum tinctures which encompass multiple cannabinoids like CBD, CBC, CBG, and THC.

You don’t need to add your tincture to drinks if you want to mask the taste of your hemp tincture. All you need to do is have your favorite snack of choice nearby to mask the earthy taste. Drop the tincture under your tongue and immediately eat your snack of choice.
