About Delta-8 and Alcohol
Delta-8 has its own set of effects, and so does alcohol. And now you’re combining them. So with that, there are a few extra things you want to consider.
Take It A Bit Easier On The Delta-8
If you haven’t tried Delta-8 tinctures yet, you might want to hold off on mixing them into cocktails. And if you do have a bit more experience, it’s a good idea to go a bit “lighter” than usual.
Delta-8 is a form of THC, and alcohol can enhance its absorption. Or in other words, the effects might be a bit stronger.
Expect An Onset Similar To Edibles
As always, it’s essential to enjoy any cocktails responsibly and in moderation. And the same applies to cocktails with Delta-8 in them.
So if you’ve just finished a cocktail and you’re wondering when the Delta-8 kicks in. Because the tincture has to travel through your digestive system, the onset of effects will be similar to edibles.
