What Is A Delta-8 Tincture?
Delta-8 oils and tinctures are liquid hemp extracts that contain the psychoactive cannabinoid delta-8 THC. Like CBD oils, delta-8 tinctures come with a dropper that customers could use to measure their ideal cannabinoid dosage.
Delta-8 THC shares many traits with the federally illegal delta-9 THC, but it has a slightly different chemical structure. Like delta-9, delta-8 THC lands on the brain's CB1 receptors to produce a "high" sensation. However, most customers describe delta-8 THC's effects as less intense than delta-9. A few common words people use to describe delta-8 include "relaxing," "sedating," and "indica-like."
High-quality hemp-derived delta-8 products like JustKana's delta-8 oils never contain more than 0.3 percent delta-9 THC.
Delta-8 Oils & Tinctures FAQs
Are Delta-8 Oils Legal In The USA?
Due to its relation with delta-9 THC, delta-8 is a hotly debated cannabinoid. However, no federal law says hemp-derived extracts like delta-8 oils are illegal. In fact, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals recently ruled that delta-8 products are OK if they meet the 2018 US Farm Bill's standards.
Officially, the US government only has an issue with delta-9 THC. If delta-8 oil manufacturers use hemp flowers with ≤ 0.3 percent delta-9 THC, then they are legitimate per the 2018 US Farm Bill.
However, just because DC hasn't issued delta-8 bans doesn't mean this cannabinoid is legit in every US state. Please remember that local jurisdictions could introduce unique hemp policies. Some US territories have already told hemp shops to halt the sale of delta-8, and a few police units have raided delta-8 stores.
Because delta-8 is a psychoactive and synthetic product, many local lawmakers have raised concerns. It also doesn't help that the hemp and cannabis markets still lack official FDA regulation.
Currently, states that are more open to recreational marijuana probably won't spend as much time or resources policing delta-8 THC products. Conversely, places that have restrictive cannabis laws are likely to enforce delta-8 bans.
Before searching for "delta-8 oils near me," customers must research their home state's hemp policies. Please remember that hemp laws are constantly changing, so be sure you’re reading the most up-to-date mandates related to delta-8 THC.
How Do You Make Delta-8 Oils and Tinctures?
Although delta-8 THC is a natural cannabinoid, it's one of the least abundant compounds in hemp flowers. In most hemp strains, delta-8 accounts for ~ 1 percent of the plant's total cannabinoid concentration.
It would be impossible for delta-8 manufacturers to turn a profit if they extracted the natural delta-8 THC from raw hemp flowers. Until cultivators develop a way to grow delta-8-rich nugs, extractors rely on CBD to create delta-8 oils.
CBD is the most common hemp cannabinoid, plus it's federally legal. Also, since CBD and THC have the same parent cannabinoid (i.e., CBG-A), they have a similar molecular structure. Chemists use pressure, heat, and solvents to create delta-8 THC in a controlled lab setting. Once they have their delta-8 THC, extractors will mix it into a food-safe oil.
At JustKana, we use coconut-extracted MCT oil and natural hemp resin oil in our full-spectrum CBD and delta-8 tinctures. We feel this combination provides the optimal benefits to customers and compliments delta-8's fat-soluble structure.

Are Delta-8 THC Tinctures Better Than Other Delta-8 Products?
Arguably, the most attractive feature of delta-8 oils is their ease of dosing. Although you can see the total delta-8 concentration in hemp flowers, prerolls, and vape carts, you never truly know how much you're getting with each session. Only delta-8 oils allow you to measure your cannabinoid dosage with unparalleled accuracy thanks to your milligram dropper and sublingual ingestion.
"Sublingual ingestion" means putting some delta-8 oil under your tongue for a few seconds before swallowing. By using this method, you'll enjoy close to 100 percent delta-8 absorption. Not only does this give you a clear idea of your daily delta-8 dosage, it provides customers with fast-acting & potent effects.
By contrast, delta-8 gummies take a longer time to work through the digestive system. By the time a hemp gummy breaks down in the liver, not all of the delta-8 will enter your bloodstream. While gummies' subtler effects may be attractive for some situations, they won't provide the precision of a delta-8 tincture.
So, do delta-8 oils have any negatives? Some people complain that delta-8 tinctures have a "nasty taste," and these products aren't as discreet as delta-8 gummies. Fans of delta-8 vape carts and flowers also argue their preferred products offer more immediate effects versus delta-8 oils.
However, it's worth mentioning that many delta-8 oils have natural terpenes that make them taste better. Also, if people are prone to coughing, delta-8 tinctures remain the best way to provide exceptional potency without aggravating their lungs.
How Should People Take Delta-8 THC Oils?
While there are many ways to take delta-8 oils, the most popular method is to place a few drops under your tongue, wait, and swallow. This technique allows the tongue's sublingual glands to absorb delta-8 THC into a person's bloodstream, which produces the most intense effects.
For those who aren't fans of taking delta-8 sublingually, you could add this oil to a glass of water and "chug." The effects of swallowing your "delta-8 water" won't be as pronounced as taking it sublingually, but this method will have an impact.
Some people also enjoy putting their delta-8 oil in edible or topical recipes. Since the delta-8 in a tincture is already decarboxylated, you can add a smidge to your favorite DIY products. Just remember that delta-8 is way more potent than CBD, so you'll need to dial back your dosage if you're used to using CBD oils.
How Much Delta-8 THC Oil Should I Take?
New customers must take a cautious approach to dosing delta-8 oils. While most anecdotal testimonies suggest delta-8 isn't as intense as delta-9, this cannabinoid can pack a punch. You can't rely on your preferred CBD or CBG dosage when determining how much delta-8 oil to take.
Please always take less delta-8 THC oil than you would CBD oil. As a rule of thumb, JustKana recommends starting with no more than 5 mg of delta-8 THC oil on your first session. Delta-8 can induce adverse side effects like paranoia if mishandled, so it's safer to stick with a "microdose" on your first session.
After gaining experience with your delta-8 THC tincture, you can slowly increase the milligram count at each new session. We'd recommend keeping detailed notes of your daily dosage on your phone or in a notepad while experimenting with delta-8 THC oil.
Are There Side Effects From Taking Delta-8 THC Oil?
Many of the standard "stoner" side effects associated with delta-9 could happen after taking delta-8 THC. For instance, many customers notice red & itchy eyes, a dry mouth, and sedation. It's also possible that delta-8 users could experience paranoia, hallucinations, or panic attacks.
People with a low THC tolerance or who are prone to anxiety need to be extra careful when taking delta-8 THC oil. Even a "moderate" dose of delta-8 could trigger severe side effects if you're not used to psychoactive cannabinoids.
Customers should always use delta-8 THC oils when they're at home and have no plans to leave for the rest of the night. Since delta-8 is associated with sedation, it's best to test delta-8 tinctures a few hours before bed. Please never take delta-8 oils before driving, as this cannabinoid can interfere with your motor function.
Are Your Delta-8 THC Products Lab-Tested?
JustKana places the highest importance on screening our products for safety. If we don't feel comfortable taking our delta-8 products, we will never list them for sale.
We constantly publish our latest lab reports on this link so customers can get an up-to-date view of the purity of our hemp extracts. JustKana also includes third-party lab reports when shipping our delta-8 tinctures and oils.

Do You Sell Any Other Delta-8 Products?
Delta-8 tinctures have a lot of benefits, but they may not suit every customer's preferences. If you're not interested in delta-8 oils, you could find many other options on JustKana's website.
For instance, we now have a line of delta-8 THC vape carts that work with standard 510 threaded batteries. Our natural delta-8 THC carts have zero MCT, PG, VG, or PEG oil. Instead, customers will only experience clean delta-8 plus the all-natural hemp terpenes and dozens of iconic strains.
Customers who'd prefer to go "old school" will also find plenty of delta-8-fortified hemp nugs and prerolls on our site. Similar to our vape carts, these delta-8 hemp flowers mimic many of the most iconic marijuana strains — except they have ≤ 0.3 percent delta-9 THC!
Lastly, anyone with a sweet tooth could order a bag of our fruity delta-8 gummies. Available in apple, blueberry, and watermelon, our delta-8 gummies are a great way to subtly introduce delta-8 to your body.
Just remember that delta-8 gummies take longer to have an effect, so please avoid eating too many of these goodies early on. Eating a lot of delta-8 gummies early in the day will likely experience severe side effects a few hours later. Be sure you start with no more than 5 mg of our delta-8 gummies and wait at least two hours before considering taking another 5 mg.
