How to Pair City Trees Tinctures with Coffee

7 Dec, 2020Food

THC and CBD tinctures are some of the most versatile cannabis products on the market. You can easily add tinctures to your favorite drinks and food for a well-balanced high without feeling weighed down from smoking. Tinctures are perfect for cannabis users that want to achieve the effects of cannabis without putting harmful smoke in their lungs. 

This video shows you how to add our City Trees Blue Agave Tincture for a sweet touch for your coffee. One dose of the Blue Agave Tincture 750mg of THC will be roughly 10mg of THC, which is a perfect amount for your Saturday morning coffee. Many cannabis users pair their wake and bake routine with a cup of coffee for a pleasant way to start their day. 


The City Trees Blue Agave Tincture is made from the blue agave plant, giving the product a sweet taste that is an excellent alternative to other sugars and sweeteners. Agave nectar is also water-soluble, which makes this tincture very easy to mix into food and drink. This tincture's consistency is similar to simple syrups, making it perfect for mixing in with beverages and baked goods. 

Best Ways to Use Tinctures

The easiest way to use tinctures is to use the dropper and place a dose under your tongue for 60 to 90 seconds before swallowing. The cannabinoids will be absorbed through the blood vessels in your mouth, and effects will be felt within 15 to 30 minutes. 

As was seen in our video above, there are countless ways to use tinctures in food and drinks. Foodies will have a blast trying City Trees tinctures with new recipes. All of our City Trees tinctures are derived from plants, using agave nectar and glycerin as the base carrier for the cannabinoids. This makes for better mixture into food and drinks since these are water-soluble.

Tinctures will do best being mixed with foods with some fat because cannabinoids are fat-soluble. We also recommend waiting for hot dishes to be done cooking before adding the tincture so it does not get burned off and lose potency. Here are some of the most popular ways people use tinctures:

  • Coffee 
  • Tea
  • Juice
  • Smoothies
  • Ice Cream
  • Salad
  • Soup
  • Pasta

Since the tincture is being ingested, the cannabinoids are absorbed through the liver. This means that it may take up to an hour for the effects to be felt. 

THC Tincture Benefits

THC tinctures offer you a discreet way to use cannabis. You won't have to worry about smelling like cannabis when you're out in public, and tinctures are easily concealed in a small smell proof bottle.

Tinctures are perfect for first-time cannabis users. Tinctures typically come in small glass bottles with droppers that are sized for precise dosage. This allows the user to know exactly how much THC they are consuming. 

Another benefit of tinctures is that the effects come on relatively fast if taken sublingually under the tongue. Effects can be felt within 15 to 30 minutes, which is much faster than other edibles, which can take an hour or more to feel the effects. A quick onset of effects is excellent for a first time user because it takes away much of  the anxiety of waiting for the effects to finally kick in. Many people make the mistake of not waiting long enough with edibles and taking another dose, and before they know it, they're glued to the couch with a high that is way more potent than what they intended.

Tinctures have become very popular in the medical community as a smokeless alternative for using cannabis. Athletes that supplement cannabis for recovery can get the benefits without damaging their lungs from smoking.
