Does Delta 8 come in a tincture?

By Dharma D8   |   May 11, 2021

In the last year or so, it seems like there has been a major boom in products made from hemp. In particular, there are many products that have a lot of delta-8-tetrahydrocannabinol (Delta 8 or D8 THC). However, there are a large number of people who are unfamiliar with Delta 8 and genuinely want to learn more. One key question in particular that people have is whether or not D8 THC comes in a tincture or as an oil in general. Since we here at DharmaD8 are all about education, we want to make sure you know all you need about D8 THC products and recognize what to look for in these products. We’ll aid you in answering this question, along with a few others. Ready to get started?

Does Delta 8 come in a tincture?

Delta 8 tinctures are one of the more popular categories of hemp products and for good reason. So, you have probably seen some around that advertise cannabidiol (CBD). But what about D8 THC?

To start with, let’s resolve the main question. Yes, there are Delta 8 tinctures! But do you know what a tincture is, and what makes them so great? Just in case you don’t, tinctures comprise a mixture of an extract, an oil, and some other natural ingredients to create an effect that combines various benefits. Some tinctures are rather basic, with only the extract, the carrier oil, and another oil to add flavor. Others get a bit more complicated. Either way, they remain a great way to get your fix of cannabinoids.

The reason people like tinctures as much as they do is that they provide you with some flexibility in how you take them. Some people prefer taking them directly by putting a few drops right into their mouths. This is pleasant because it is a faster way to get the D8 THC into your system. The skin in your mouth is thin, which allows for easier absorption. Additionally, with the Delta 8 being in just a tincture, there’s less for it to get through to get into your system.

Another popular way is by using the tincture in your cooking. You’re essentially just making your own edible when you make use of the tincture while cooking. This method is popular because it helps with the potential hemp flavor. However, you do have to wait for the food to digest before the Delta 8 can take effect. A similar, yet simpler method is including it in a drink. There are water-soluble tinctures that you can buy (like the one that we sell at DharmaD8) which you can add to any drink you would like.

One slightly less common way is by applying the tincture as a topical. With this method, you rub the tincture on your skin. This won’t do too much for you, feeling of euphoria-wise, since the Delta 8 never actually reaches your bloodstream. However, it may nevertheless be a possible way to induce the potential pain-relieving effects that D8 THC may be able to provide, just in a very localized way.

There are also Delta 8 tinctures that have been created to vape. This is comparatively more of an effective way to get some D8 THC into your system. Particularly, this is due to the fact that inhalation is one of the fastest ways to feel the effects of Delta 8. It doesn’t have to pass through thin skin or wait for digestion to break it down. Moreover, with this method, the D8 THC actually gets into your bloodstream, unlike when you use it as a topical. It is critical to remember that you should only vape a Delta 8 tincture that has been made to be vaped. You can’t just stick any tincture into a vape as that could be damaging. If this is a method that you’re interested in, ensure you are buying a tincture you can vape.

Now that you have a good grasp on the basics of Delta 8 tinctures, let’s move on to some other things you should know about them.

How to find high-quality Delta 8 tinctures

Now you know that you can get D8 THC in tincture form, you should know what to look for in a tincture.

The first thing that you need to keep an eye out for is testing. Delta 8 products of every kind should be tested for quality and cannabinoid content. This ensures you can be certain of what you’re buying and using. Therefore, testing information should be readily available on the D8 THC company’s site. Here at DharmaD8, we offer our testing information and results on each product page. We sincerely want to ensure full transparency. 

A good Delta 8 tincture should additionally include all the ingredients listed on the label. Not only should you know what’s in the D8 THC extract, but you should also know what goes into the oil base used to make the tincture. Our water-soluble tincture contains all the ingredients listed on the label, just like all our other products. You know you’re getting exactly what you're looking for when you purchase from us.

Something else to be aware of when researching Delta 8 tinctures is that the market for D8 THC is still relatively new. This means that the prices are a little volatile. Some places charge an arm and a leg, but that doesn’t mean their product is any good. Others will charge practically nothing, which doesn’t mean much for the quality either. In fact, if a product seems too good to be true, it most likely is. Delta 8 tinctures with an excellent middle ground, for example, DharmaD8’s tincture, might be a better bet on quality and an appropriate price.

After researching all that, you just have to decide what flavor of tincture you would like. Some people prefer tinctures of a particular flavor, others like that classic hemp flavor. Our water-soluble tincture is perfect for anyone who likes variety. It provides you with the chance to put your Delta 8 into any drink you like.

What kind of effects could I expect from Delta 8 tinctures?

If you’re looking to completely understand Delta 8 tinctures, let’s talk about what kind of effect you might experience while using them.

A feeling of euphoria

This is the effect that most people are looking for. The reason is they are likely familiar with the feeling of euphoria that you get from Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (Delta 9 THC). This compound (as you can tell from the name) is remarkably similar to D8 THC. The only difference is that they have a double bond that’s in a different spot. As a result, they are capable of providing similar, yet slightly different, effects.  Delta 9 THC is famous for causing an intense feeling of euphoria. Delta 8 generates a similar feeling of euphoria, but it is generally described as less intense. So, when using a D8 THC tincture, it’s very likely that you’ll experience a feeling of euphoria.

A sense of calm

Some people may find this idea kind of silly. After all, who among us has heard some story of someone giving a Delta 9 THC product a try and then having a bit of a freakout? But there is considerable promise for Delta 8 to help provide some help for those who are struggling with anxiety. Research suggests that anxiety is connected with the Endocannabinoid System (ECS), the system of receptors that are found throughout the human body. In fact, it appears to be connected with the same ECS receptor (called CB1) that D8 THC interacts with the most.

A feeling of sharpness

This is yet another effect that people may not believe when they initially hear it. Generally, feelings of euphoria are associated with feeling mentally fuzzy. But the effects of Delta 8 have been described as a clear-headed high. That it can even assist with productivity. On top of that, this study found that D8 THC could help improve cognitive functions in patients with neurological conditions.

One thing to bear in mind about these effects that we’ve talked about is that Delta 8 affects everyone differently. Some people may experience an overwhelming feeling of euphoria, while others experience only a mild one. Some people may feel relaxed and sleepy, while others may feel extremely productive and want to get a lot done. It depends on each person. So, the main way to know how you’re going to feel while using D8 THC tinctures is by giving some a try yourself.

What else is there besides Delta 8 tinctures?

After reading all of that, you may be ready to go off and buy a Delta 8 tincture right now. Which is great! However, you may also realize that a tincture isn’t really for you. If that’s the case, you’re more than likely wondering what other options are available. Well, there are plenty, so let’s discuss what some of them are.

Smokables

This category definitely remains the more classic option for D8 THC. It includes vapes and joints, basically anything that you inhale. We talked briefly about tinctures that can be used for vaping, but there are also just regular joints and hemp cigarettes. With these, you get the Delta 8 effect much faster than you would with any other kind of product. The one downside is that the effect wears off a bit faster than with most other D8 THC products.

Edibles

Any food or drink made using D8 THC extract can be considered an edible. They are among the more popular Delta 8 products. They are easy to take (just eat them), they taste great (help mask that hemp flavor), and their effects last a long time. Their most significant downside is that it can take a long time for their effects to kick in. This is because the food or drink needs to digest a bit before the D8 THC can enter your system.

Topicals

Topicals are a slightly more unusual Delta 8 product. They are products like lotions and creams, basically, anything that you use on your skin. The reason why these are so much more unusual is that you’re unlikely to get any sort of feeling of euphoria from these products. The D8 THC never actually makes it to your bloodstream. However, as we talked about a bit above, there is a chance a Delta 8 topical may still be able to provide you with some pain-relieving effects.

Yes, there are products other than Delta 8 tinctures. However, as you can see, D8 THC tinctures can be used in the same way as all of these other products. While having a Delta 8 product that is made for a specific use is exceedingly nice to have, having something that is versatile enough to allow you to use it in several ways can be even better. This is why Delta 8 tinctures are enormously popular.

So, yes, D8 THC does come in tincture form and in Delta 8 CBD form! They can be an ideal product because they are versatile in how you use them. That way they can be your go-to product for D8 THC, whether you want to take it straight, make an edible, or use it as a topical. If tinctures are the kind of Delta 8 product that you’re looking for, then you’re in luck. Here at DharmaD8, we have a wide range of products, including our water-soluble tincture. It’s made from the highest-quality hemp, is carefully crafted, and then is rigorously tested. You can use it in any kind of drink you would like, making it a nice, easy-to-use product.
