A Review of 3Chi Delta 8 THC Tincture
3Chi was one of the first companies to offer a wide selection of delta 8 products, putting them ahead of the trend that is now exploding. They’re a company known for being honest with their customers and producing clean products that can be used daily.
Tinctures, for those who don’t know, are oil-based products made for sublingual absorption. They are held under the tongue for usually a minute or so before getting swallowed. During this time, the compounds absorb through this tissue and enter the body at a fairly fast rate. Most people take tinctures at night, around bedtime, but they can be taken at any time of day.
Now, let’s get into what makes this tincture so spectacular.
There are usually two things that are important to consider: the quality of the container itself, and the language that’s on the label. The tincture comes in a black, opaque dropper bottle, which is actually a surprisingly good option. This type of material blocks out light that could degrade the delta 8, and so it shows that the company cares about these kinds of details.
On the label find everything you need to know about what’s inside the bottle, and how the formula should be taken.
3Chi is a company that values transparency. Those who are experienced in the hemp industry know that companies must be transparent in order to prove that their products are legitimate, safe, clean and effective. 3Chi is straightforward about how their products are produced, the ingredients that they use and even the compounds of the hemp plant that go int their formulas. Further, they’re accessible via customer service so that customers can act them questions directly.
We love that the Delta 8 THC Tincture comes in three different milligram strengths. You can choose between 300mg, 600mg and 1200mg, depending on how potent you want the experience to be. As the delta 8 industry continues to expand, we hope that more companies will continue to consider the fact that different customers have different desired levels of potency.
The Delta 8
The delta 8 that’s used in this formula does come from the hemp plant, which means that it is federally legal. It’s extracted via an ethanol process.
In addition to delta 8 concentrate, this tincture contains broad spectrum hemp extract, which is something we’re very happy about. Delta 8, being one of many hemp compounds, works synergistically with additional cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids in a way that can deliver more desirable results overall. This formula contains a wide range of cannabinoids in particularly high numbers, due to the breed of hemp that they use. This means that while you experience delta 8, your body will also be getting CBD, CBN, CBG and more.
Note that broad spectrum hemp extract is free of delta 9 THC, which has been isolated and removed.
The Delta 8 THC Tincture from 3Chi is an exceptionally clean formula, being free of additives, fillers, dyes, and flavoring. While it is an unflavored product, it does taste like the natural hemp plant due to the presence of a variety of terpenes. The formula’s list of ingredients is short and sweet: hemp extract, terpenes, MCT oil and vitamin E.
3Chi does do third-party lab-testing, as any hemp company should. This means that they have each batch of hemp extract tested rigorously by a third party, which verifies the quality of the product. 3Chi actually goes above and beyond to make these lab reports clearly available to customers so that they can prove their legitimacy to hemp enthusiasts.
The flavor of this tincture is exceptionally clean and smooth, and fairly mild. There are a lot of terpenes in the formula, but you find that they work together nicely, and have a produce a balanced flavor profile that’s herbal, citrusy and a little minty, with undertones of pine. Since it’s a tincture, you get to experience the flavor in your mouth for quite a while as the tincture absorbs through the sublingual tissue.
What to Experience
If you’ve never taken a delta 8 tincture before, you’re in for a unique experience. Delta 8 is known for being mildly psychoactive and taking it in tincture form produces subtler effects than the ones that result from vaping it. Within about 30 to 45 minutes, the mild calming buzz is noticeable, in addition to gentle uplifting effects. Meanwhile, you may notice that your stress slowly calms down, and you feel less tense generally speaking.
The delta 8 tincture does seem to provide effects for a couple of hours, as is the nature with sublingual absorption. After about an hour and a half, the psychoactive properties start to dip, but the calming sensation is still there. It’s hard to know how much of that sensation comes from the CBD rather than the delta 8, but there’s good reason to assume that it’s actually a synergistic effect caused by the presence of both cannabinoids.
Given the effects of this particular tincture, it could be a good option for bedtime, as well as an evening after a long and stressful day. It’s the kind of hemp product you’ll look forward to taking if you need to chill out. It is something that’s good for daily use and depending on how sensitive you are to delta 8’s effects, you may find yourself taking multiple doses throughout the day.
Our Final Opinion
3Chi’s Delta 8 THC Tincture is a great choice for someone looking to get started with delta 8, who wants to take the same dose every day for a particular purpose. It’s definitely a high-quality and highly legitimate product that comes in various potency levels so you can be more in control of your hemp experience.
