When you first start your hemp journey, the expansive selection of products can be overwhelming. Don’t worry once you understand what you’re looking at, it’s easy to choose one. As you read over these, keep in mind that the serving size for hemp extract can vary from person-to-person.
Let’s get started!
Pure Hemp Extract
Inside this tube is a pure hemp extract. No other ingredients are added it’s just hemp oil.
The oil is a dark brown color with a pasty consistency. It’s sort of like coconut oil; it starts to become a liquid at warm temperatures.
It’s packaged in an oral syringe so you can dispense a small amount at a time without making a huge mess. Sometimes, especially in winter, it becomes difficult to get oil out of the tube. If you run into that issue, place the dispenser into a cup of warm water for a few minutes, then gently try dispensing it again.
This oil tastes very strong, like a handful of grass. It’s normal for the flavor to vary between batches, so don’t be surprised if you order it once and then the next time it taste a bit different.
How to Use
One serving is a piece the size of a grain of rice (after much trial and error, we found this to be the easiest way to measure). Take a serving 1-2 times per day. Place the oil under your tongue, wait 60-90 seconds and then swallow. You can get 30-39 servings per gram. So in the 3g (3 gram) size tube pictured on the left, there are about 90 servings.
– It is absolutely not water-soluble, so you’ll be disappointed if you try to mix it into tea or juice. If you’re trying to cover the taste, keep in mind you only really taste it when you go to swallow the oil, so you can take a drink of juice as you do that to cover the flavor. I’ve found apple cider (not apple cider vinegar!) does a fantastic job at hiding the hemp taste.
– Be careful when placing the oil under your tongue. It’s easy to miss and get oil on your teeth or lips, which can be a little aggravating to remove. The easiest way we’ve found to dispense this oil is to place the serving onto your finger or the back of a spoon, then wipe it under your tongue.
Why Choose Me
Pure hemp extracts are very concentrated by volume. If you’re looking for the best value, highest potency product, this is where you’ll find it. Typically, the reason people choose other products is because either they do not need such a high strength product, or because they find these pure hemp oil tubes to be too challenging to use or bad tasting. But for those with very serious wellness goals, this is the first choice.
Hemp Oil Tincture
Hemp oil tinctures are made with the pure hemp extract we just talked about, plus other ingredients that make it a liquid and taste much better.
It’s a liquid oil. Separation is natural, so shake it well before use.
It’s packaged in a tinted glass bottle to block out light and keep it fresh. The dropper top makes Tasty Drops very easy to use and leaves no mess.
A lot of tinctures are unflavored, but Tasty Drops does offer a wide range of options made with natural and organic flavors. They all do a great job toning down the hemp taste, but you may still notice it a little. It’s something you get used to, but to totally mask the flavor, take a drink of juice as you swallow the oil. (Apple cider works great.)
How to Use
Take a 1/2 dropper full once or twice daily. Place the oil under your tongue, wait 60-90 seconds and then swallow.
Why Choose Me
Tinctures are very common and loved by the hemp community because they’re easy to use, taste good, and don’t leave any mess. They’re great for everyone, from small to big wellness goals.
These are hemp topicals. As you can see, they come in a variety of sizes and packaging types to fit the needs of everyone.
