  1. Combine all ingredients (except toppings) into a blender. Blend on high for 30 seconds until thick and creamy but pourable.
  2. Pour into a large glass and top with whipped cream, a cherry, and a sprig of mint (or any garnish you choose).
  3. Enjoy!

3 Ways To Enjoy Your Delta-8 St. Patrick’s Shake

Celebrating St. Patrick's Day

Since the St. Patrick’s Shake is associated with… well, St. Paddy's Day, there is truly no better time to indulge than on March 17th. Plus, the addition of a little hemp-derived Delta-8 means that you can forgo all those green beers in favor of alcohol-free revelry. 

Hot Summer Days

Who doesn't love to cool down with a milkshake when it's hot and humid out? Switch it up this summer with this chill, minty recipe. Mint contains a compound called menthol, which actually creates a cooling sensation. The Delta-8 tincture will help you completely chill out. 

Extra-Lucky After-Work Treat

At the end of the long work week, it's time to put your feet up. What better way to relax on a Friday night than with a Delta-8-infused treat? Vanilla ice cream, a dash of mint, and a drop (or two) of our Mint Delta-8 THC Tincture may be the perfect after-dinner combination for releasing all those built-up workweek stressors.

Why Delta-8 THC?

If you’re familiar with Delta-9 THC (the primary active component of cannabis), you'll find the effects from Delta-8 are much milder than Delta-9 THC

What does this lighter potency usually feel like? From those who've tried it, you'll often hear that they feel:
  • A sensation of well-being
  • Calmness
  • Mild euphoria 
  • Relaxation
Of course, like all cannabinoids, the effects can vary from one person to the next. What feels mild to one person may feel stronger to another. If our Delta-8 St. Patrick shake recipe is your first time trying this cannabinoid, stick with the recommended serving size (one drop) to feel it out first.

Why a Tincture?

Tinctures are one of the easiest ways to make infused edibles. Compared with cannabis butter (or CBD butter), which requires a bit of preparation before you even begin to make the edible, tinctures are streamlined. They are a ready-to-add ingredient promising no mess and no clean-up

Many people also find tinctures an easy-to-enjoy format. It's straightforward to dole out to achieve the experience you’re looking for. As you familiarize yourself with the relaxing effects from one drop, the dropper, and formulation make it easy to start experimenting with serving size— one drop at a time until you find a level that works for you.

We'd also like to mention that we make our tinctures with 100 percent MCT oil derived from organically grown coconuts (medium-chain triglycerides extracted from coconut oil). This format helps boost the bioavailability of Delta-8 (and other cannabinoids) because cannabinoids are fat-soluble. A tincture that combines Delta-8 with a fatty component (in this case, MCT oil) makes it easier for our bodies to absorb the cannabinoids.
