How To Use A Cannabis Tincture

When you visit a hemp store or browse online, it’s surprising to see the volume of tinctures available.

But if you’re new, it can be a challenge to determine which tincture is right for you.

Fortunately, this is right up our alley.

Set aside your uncertainty because this article will cover Delta 8 to CBD and everything in-between.

Buckle up because it’s time to begin!

What is Delta 8 Tincture, and How it’s Made?

Delta-8 THC is often compared to Delta-9 THC, but they are much different regarding the effects that occur.

In fact, Delta-8 has quickly become a preferred choice over Delta-9 because it offers “lighter” effects. But remember, results vary.

Delta-8 can be infused in many different products. However, Delta-8 tinctures continue to be favored for their versatility and easy use.

But what are Delta-8 tinctures?

Delta-8 tinctures are much like CBD oil, as it is also made by infusing a carrier oil (usually MCT oil or hemp seed oil) with the concentrated distillate, where it is then placed in a small glass bottle with a dropper cap.

Depending on the manufacturer, there are usually varying concentration levels.

For example, at Hometown Hero, we give our customers the option to choose between 600mg or 1,200mg of Delta-8 THC.

How to Use a Delta 8 Tincture

When using tinctures, there isn’t a need to overthink it too much since it’s one of the easiest methods to consume Delta-8.

Sublingually

Sublingual administration happens to be the simplest way to use a tincture. Fill the dropper with the desired amount of oil, and squeeze a drop or two (not the whole vial) directly under your tongue.

This method can activate much sooner than consumed in a drink or food because the mucus membrane (located under the tongue) has many capillaries. Capillaries are tiny blood vessels that allow oxygen and nutrients to be absorbed much faster.

Going this route allows consumers to receive quicker results without waiting as long as edibles.

Add It to a Meal or Beverage

We love a drop or two under the tongue, but some don’t particularly like the flavor or texture of the oil.

If this sounds like you, it can easily be added to any drink. But it’s worth noting that oil doesn’t mix well with water.

So if you add the oil to a drink, prepare for the oil to float to the surface.

Add Cannabis Tincture to a Meal or Beverage

To avoid this, try using a portable drink mixer. This tool will help distribute the oil evenly without having visible oil.

But if drinks aren’t your thing, put a drop or two in a meal.

Make some stir fry and add some during or after everything is cooked.

With tinctures, the opportunities are endless.

Apply It to Your Skin

Not only can you consume it, but tinctures can also be applied to the skin.

So grab your loved one or yourself, and apply the oil to your legs, arms, or back.

But keep in mind, a little goes a long way.

A few drops should be enough without having too much oil on the skin.

It's best to start with a drop or two and rub it complexity in before adding more.

What is a CBD Tincture, and How it’s Made?

CBD oil is different from Delta-8 tinctures because of the active compounds.

Currently, CBD tinctures can be divided into three sections:

  • Full-spectrum
  • Broad-spectrum
  • CBD isolate

CBD oil is made from hemp extracts drawn out from leaves, flowers, and stalks of the plant.

After this extraction process is complete, there will be several active compounds, which will make this either broad-spectrum or full-spectrum CBD oil.

Broad-spectrum CBD oil contains several naturally-occurring cannabinoids, except THC. By removing THC, it creates the opportunity for consumers to experience the power of hemp without the effects.

Next, you have full-spectrum CBD.

Full-spectrum CBD carries a full range of cannabinoids and terpenes, including up to 0.3% of hemp-derived THC.

Lastly, we have CBD isolate.

CBD isolate is CBD isolated from other compounds, making it the purest form of CBD.

This product can come in a crystal, crystalline form, or tincture that is 99% pure CBD.

CBD isolate is made from broad-spectrum or full-spectrum CBD oil that has been through additional processing to remove all remaining cannabinoids and terpenes.

Because of the procedures and time in production, CBD isolate typically costs more than other tinctures.

How to Use a CBD Tincture

Whether you have CBD, Delta-8, or a CBDA tincture, you can use it the same way as you would any tincture.

As stated above, it can be consumed sublingually, in beverages/foods, or on the skin.

Consuming tinctures with foods and drinks tends to take as long to activate as edibles, while sublingual application has a quicker activation time.

The best way to find your method of choice is by trial, so you can identify which one you prefer.

Where Can I Find High-Quality Tinctures?

Not only can you purchase hemp in person, but you can also shop online and have it delivered right to your door.

With convenience like this, nothing is holding you back from purchasing tinctures.

But how do you know it’s high quality?

Simple. Choose a highly praised brand with lab-tested products and use the best ingredients, and at Hometown Hero, we hit all of these standards and much more.

Our products are lab-tested at a DEA-certified lab to ensure that you know exactly what you’re consuming.

Our Delta-8 tinctures are made with coconut MCT oil and high-quality Delta-8 distillate. It is free of any unnecessary additives and chemicals, making it take only one drop to fall in love, and it is legal in most states.

But if you want a tincture that contains the rarest cannabinoids to date, then you came to the right place.

Instead of making a CBGA tincture, we wanted a product that contained a blend of minor cannabinoids, which is why we came up with our CBDA + CBDG Tincture.
