Hempettes® vs CBD Tinctures: Differences & Benefits
At Wild Hemp, we're proud to produce both these products. We also have to admit -- they're very different from each other. For example, Wild Hemp's Hempettes® are fairly popular among smokers. However, if you don't smoke, our CBD tinctures are a fantastic option.
You might have used both these products, or you might be thinking of switching from one to the other. If this is the case, you could have wondered how they stack up against each other.
Well, we're here to tell you. Today, we're exploring how our Hempettes® stack up against our CBD tinctures.
What Are Hempettes?
Hempettes® are hemp flower designed to look like cigarettes. At Wild Hemp, we make our Hempettes® from CBD-rich hemp. This means that they contain high amounts of CBD.
Our Hempettes® are free from nicotine. They also contain less than 0.3% of THC. Therefore, they're well within the legal limits.
Hempettes® are also an excellent way to consume CBD. When you smoke CBD, it bypasses your digestive system, to directly enter your bloodstream. Due to this, you'll feel the effects much quicker than you would after consuming an edible or two.
At Wild Hemp, we're proud to manufacture some of the best CBD cigarettes around. The Hempettes® come in four different flavor profiles. There's something for everyone!
What Are CBD Tinctures?
CBD tinctures are made by suspending CBD oil in alcohol, a carrier oil, or glycerin. This results in a CBD-rich liquid, usually consumed sublingually. This means that users generally place a few drops under their tongue, before swallowing.
Generally, tinctures come in a variety of strengths and flavors. At Wild Hemp, our tinctures come in 500mg and 1,000mg doses. They're also available in five different flavors.
Additionally, we make a water-soluble tincture -- available in 300mg.
While tinctures aren't as timeless as CBD smokables, they're rapidly gaining popularity. This is because not everyone is comfortable with smoking. Furthermore, tinctures can be used in a number of different ways and we have a full range available at Wild Hemp.
Hempettes ® vs Tinctures: Which Product Reigns Supreme?
Well, there's no one way to determine if Hempettes® are better than CBD tinctures, or vice versa. Both these products have a set of unique benefits. They also have small downsides, depending on the product.
Due to this, your favorite product might not work as well for someone else. Therefore, we'll walk you through the little details, so you can decide what works best for you.
What Are the Benefits of Hempettes®?
Smoking CBD is a tried and tested way to consume it. At Wild Hemp, we've streamlined the process. This means that you don't have to waste time rolling your own joint. Simply remove your Hempette from its pack, and light up -- it really is that simple!
Additionally, each pack of Hempettes® contains 20 individual Hempettes. This means that your Hempettes could last you quite a while. Of course, this depends on how frequently you smoke them.
Furthermore, our Hempettes® don't contain any tobacco, which means they're completely free from nicotine. Therefore, Hempettes aren't addictive; they're just an easy way to consume CBD.
Smoking a Hempette® also results in a higher bioavailability rate. This means that when you smoke a Hempette, the CBD bypasses your digestive system. It enters your bloodstream much faster than an edible would. Thus, you could feel the effects a lot quicker.
Hempettes® are also very easy to take with you, throughout your day. They come in a sleek pack, and fit quite easily into a pocket, purse, or backpack.
Hempettes® -- What Are Their Downsides?
We'll be honest -- when it comes to Hempettes®, the downsides are few and far between. However, they can be deal breakers for a large number of CBD enthusiasts.
For example, CBD cigarettes are generally quite popular among smokers. If you aren't a smoker, they might take some getting used to. In fact, many non-smokers write them off completely.
In addition to this, CBD cigarettes can also be quite pungent. Hempettes® smell faintly of cannabis, and this could cause some hostile looks, depending on where you're smoking.
Therefore, even though you can take your CBD cigarettes with you, wherever you are, you might not always feel comfortable smoking them out in the open.
What Are the Benefits of CBD Tinctures?
CBD tinctures are often the product of choice for a multitude of CBD enthusiasts. This is because it's readily available in a number of places -- from online stores, to their brick-and-mortar counterparts.
In addition to this, CBD tinctures come in a selection of strengths. This means that no matter how much CBD you need, you'll be able to find a tincture in that strength.
They're also available in an assortment of flavors. This makes them quite pleasant to consume.
Furthermore, CBD tinctures are incredibly versatile. While most people opt to take them sublingually, there are countless CBD recipes available, featuring CBD tinctures. They can also be added to food and drink, for edibles on the go.
Many people find CBD tinctures much more discreet than other options. They come in small bottles, equipped with a dropper. This method also makes for easier dosing.
Are There Any Downsides to Tinctures?
As with everything else, there are some downsides to tinctures.
For example, their bioavailability rate can differ greatly, depending on how you use them. When taken sublingually, the bioavailability rate is fairly high. However, when added to food or drink, or used in cooking, the bioavailability rate drops significantly.
In addition to this, tinctures might not be the most convenient method of consumption.
You might be reluctant to place a few drops under your tongue in public. Plus, it could be difficult to do this on public transport -- like a moving train, or a bus. Adding some CBD tincture to your food and drink outside of your home could also draw attention to you, making you feel slightly awkward.
Key Takeaways -- Which Method Is Better?
Both Hempettes® and our CBD tinctures have their own set of benefits. However, when it comes to choosing a method to suit your needs, it really depends on what you need.
If you're a smoker, you might want to opt for our Hempettes®. If you aren't, or if you're trying to quit smoking, you could try a CBD tincture instead. That being said, if neither of these methods sounds good to you, fear not.
At Wild Hemp, we stock a wide selection of CBD products. Why not try some of our CBD gummies instead?
