Our tinctures are most effective when taken sublingually. Squirt a dropper or two under your tongue and hold for 30-60 seconds. This isn’t always easy as it will generate a lot of saliva (your body will want to swallow) but hold it there before swallowing for the highest absorption rate into your bloodstream. You can also take our tinctures like you would a typical edible, mixing into food or baked goods.
Our tinctures are kosher vegetable glycerin and ethanol based. The ethanol aids in sublingual
absorption and shelf life freshness while the vegetable glycerin provides natural sweetness.
Sublingual consumption allows passage directly into your bloodstream, bypassing the first-pass metabolism in your stomach and liver. It allows for roughly 30-35% adsorption versus 10-15% through standard edibles. As a comparison, smoking/vaping is 40% adsorption.
The primary sweetener is vegetable glycerin. We add a small amount of vanillin to increase sweetness on the palette. We do not add any sugar making this product ideal for diabetics or those looking to reduce their sugar intake.

Nope. Our tinctures are perfect for cooking or baking into your own homemade edibles. While it’s true high heat can degrade cannabinoids, the temperatures and exposure times used for cooking or baking are not enough to cause any significant degradation.
Using a full pinch of the dropper bulb, squirt one or two droppers under your tongue and hold for 30-60 seconds. This bypasses the first-pass metabolism in your stomach and liver increasing the overall adsorption and the quickness to effect.
