Do you have a love/hate relationship with THC?
Maybe you love how therapeutic it can be, but hate the intense ‘high’ and on-edge feeling it gives you.
Maybe you also hate the idea of inhaling smoke into your lungs, regardless of how therapeutic THC is.
Enter Delta-8 THC tinctures.
Yes, you read that right. We’re talking about Delta-8 THC, not Delta-9.
In fact, Delta-8 is so rare and so therapeutic, that it has Delta-9 veterans and CBD advocates singing its praises and making the switch.
Top 3 Delta-8 THC Tinctures
Some users of Delta-9 THC find it to be a little overwhelming. And of course, it’s still illegal federally, and in most states.
For these reasons, many users have been looking for alternative cannabinoids to address their unwanted ailments.
Good news: Delta-8 THC tinctures offer its users a more mellow, therapeutic high than Delta-9.
But Delta-8 THC is an incredibly rare cannabinoid. So, finding high-quality Delta-8 THC tinctures can be tough.
Luckily, I’ve tested several Delta-8 tinctures so you don’t have to.
Below are my top 3 brands for high-quality Delta-8 THC tinctures that I’ve found to be the most effective and safest to consume.
3Chi is among the most reliable and well experienced brands in formulating high-quality Delta-8 THC products.
In fact, they’re the first American cannabis brand to formulate Delta-8 dominant products and remain the leading distributor for all things Delta-8 in the US.
All of their products are organically grown, GMO-free, and third-party tested.
They offer two Delta-8 dominant tinctures, both of which have outstanding 5-star reviews. But it’s their Comfortably Numb Tincture that stands out for me. It gives a nice, relaxing body high and helps calm the mind after a chaotic workday.
2.) Delta Effex
Delta Effex has quickly gained popularity in the hemp industry by creating high-quality Delta-8 products to accommodate their customers’ diverse lifestyles.
They offer three different tinctures, all of which are third-party tested to ensure label accuracy and safety.
What I like most about Delta Effex is that each of their Delta-8 tinctures are formulated with different terpenes that help achieve a different therapeutic experience. I personally enjoyed their Focus Premium Delta-8 tincture. But their other tinctures (Chill and Balance) are very effective as well.
3.) Vape Whole Supply
While I understand Vape Whole Supply isn’t necessarily a Delta-8 brand, I felt they deserved to be on this list.
They meticulously research and vet each brand before listing them on their website, thus creating a marketplace for high quality, cannabinoid-based products.
I personally enjoyed the Delta Farms Delta-8 tincture. It comes in two different strengths and flavors, and it’s incredibly fast-acting.
