Helpful Facts and Tips:

  • CBD tinctures do not always mix easily with other liquids since the base of most tinctures is oil. Oil and water do not mix, so make sure to continuously stir to ensure the CBD is well incorporated into the drink!
  • When using a tincture, we recommend using some type of electric hand-held frother to blend your tincture and beverage together!
  • Also, if using a tincture and you do not wish to taste the herbal tastes some of our tinctures have, make sure to ask about what extraction process was used to make the tincture. CO2 extraction produces a much cleaner tasting product, whereas Ethanol extraction creates the more herbal tasting product.
  • If you find a tincture does not work you can always melt an edible into your hot beverage. We carry caramels and chocolates that can certainly do the trick! Check out our edible selection here!

    CBD does not make a person “high.” Although CBD comes from cannabis plants, it does not produce the same euphoric intoxication as cannabis or THC.
