What are Dad Grass Tinctures?
Yep. Dad Grass now comes in liquid form! First, we introduced the world to Dad Grass in a bottle with our Classic Formula CBD Tincture. Formulated with 1200 MG of full spectrum CBD, it’s a great daily ritual for wellness and self care, and it comes in a convenient, easy-to-dose dropper-top bottle. Then, we balanced things out with our Goodtime Formula CBD + CBG Tincture that provides the relief of CBD with the rejuvenation of CBG so you can keep the good times rollin’. Although this 1:1 formula is good anytime, we like to drop it when our good times have left us feeling, well, less than great.
Dad Grass Tincture Fun Fact #01: Tinctures were actually the main form of cannabis-based medicine in the US until the government outlawed cannabis in 1937. So you could say we’re taking it way back to the old school.
What is the Dad Grass Classic Formula CBD Tincture made from?
Our Dad Grass Classic Formula CBD Tincture is made from the same CBD-rich 100% Organic Dad Grass hemp flower you’ll find in our Dad Grass Joints and Flower tins. The recipe is pretty simple. Just carefully extracted, full spectrum hemp oil blended with organic MCT oil. An easy, everyday formulation that celebrates the mellow goodness of the whole cannabis plant. That’s why we like to refer to it as “Dad Grass in a bottle.”
What about the Dad Grass Goodtime Formula CBD+CBG Tincture?
Like the Dad Grass Classic Formula, our Goodtime Formula is made from carefully extracted, full spectrum hemp oil blended with organic MCT oil. We use the same CBD-rich 100% Organic Dad Grass hemp flower you'll find in our Dad Grass products along with the same CBG-rich flower you've come to know and love from Mom Grass. The powerful duo of CBD and CBG packs an extra punch thanks to the entourage effect. The effects and benefits of each cannabinoid are amplified when paired together, to give you the relief and rejuvenation you need to keep the good times rollin'.
What’s the best way to use Dad Grass Tinctures?
- Under The Tongue: Remember, “bioavailability” is the name of the game when it comes to cannabinoids (like CBD and CBG). The best way to experience the full benefits of a Dad Grass Tincture is to take them sublingually to ensure you’re getting as much of the good stuff as possible. We recommend placing your desired dosage under your tongue and waiting about 30 seconds before swallowing (if it helps, sing the chorus of Bye, Bye Miss American Pie in your head while you wait). The arterial blood supply under your tongue needs time to absorb the cannabinoids to ensure your endocannabinoid system receives all the benefits of hemp.
- Low And Slow: We recommend first timers start out low and slow with one half to one full dropper (about 1ML). Just remember, you can always add additional drops in a half hour if you want to enjoy deeper levels of chill.
- Your Daily Dose: You know when dad used to say that “an apple a day keeps the doctor away?” Ya, we’re pretty sure he was talking about Grass. Not only can you take cannabinoids like CBD and CBG every day, but word on the street is that you should. We already know that you can’t overdose on hemp derived cannabinoids, and because CBD and CBG are both fat-soluble compounds (and are most effectively absorbed by the body when consumed alongside saturated fats like MCT) they build up in the body over time. That means that when taken daily, the benefits of CBD and CBG build on themselves and are believed to add additional health benefits when taken consistently. Not only do the benefits of cannabinoids compound in your system, when you incorporate full spectrum hemp oil into your daily routine you also prime your endocannabinoid system, which in turn will allow your body to more effectively absorb the benefits of the additional cannabinoids you like to enjoy.
How will Dad Grass Classic Formula CBD Tincture make me feel?
Our friends tell us that the Dad Grass Classic Formula CBD Tincture helps ease their symptoms of stress, anxiety, pain and inflammation while providing a subtle, naturally calming effect. Many daily users report that it improves their mood and overall sense of wellbeing. Like our CBD Joints and Flower, our tinctures tend to widen smiles without altering minds. That’s because they are full of CBD but contain only trace amounts of THC, which is the psychoactive cannabinoid in cannabis that has a tendency to make you feel stoned or, worse yet, freak out. Some people report getting a mellow buzz, but usually only after taking a larger dose. And don’t worry, our tinctures aren’t a stimulant either, so if you need a little wind down before you turn in for the night, Dad Grass tinctures are a great way to lull you into a natural sleep as well.
How will Dad Grass Goodtime Formula CBD+CBG Tincture make me feel?
Whether you're craving relief after wandering into the wee hours, a reset after binging rom-coms on the red-eye or recovery from your New Year's gym resolutions, our latest drop will bring you back to normal (whatever that looks like for you). Our friends tell us that The Goodtime Tincture's 1:1 ratio has them feeling relaxed (thanks to CBD) and ready for the night or day ahead (you can thank CBG for that). After a few drops, you'll be feeling switched on and clear from the post-hustle fog.
Will Dad Grass Tinctures give me the same feeling as Dad Grass Pre Rolled Joints?
Although our joints and tinctures share the same main ingredients, the experience and effects may be slightly different. When you use smokable flower, you’re likely to feel it more quickly. When you consume a tincture sublingually (that means, under your tongue), the onset may be a bit more gradual and the effects more subtle. Either way, you’re still going to benefit from the plant’s full spectrum of cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids that all work together to give you that mellow feeling that you’ve come to expect from Dad Grass’s high quality products. Relaxed body & mind? Check. Widened smile? Check. Clear head? You betcha.
What are the benefits of using Dad Grass Tinctures?
People tend to be as complicated as the endocannabinoid system (into science? Read more about the endocannabinoid system here!). So everyone tends to react a little bit differently to our products. But after doing plenty of R&D (if you know what we mean) we’ve got a pretty good sense of what most people can expect from Dad Grass Tinctures.
When taken daily, our tinctures help many people achieve and maintain a state of reliable chill, while keeping their minds sharp and focused for whatever comes their way. And whether they’re used once in a while or as a daily ritual, high quality full spectrum hemp tinctures like ours have proven effective in reducing anxiety, stress, pain and inflammation. There’s also a growing body of scientific research that indicates they can help alleviate certain symptoms associated with chronic illnesses.Reducing Anxiety and Stress: It bums us out that anxiety and depression are so common these days. But the good news is that CBD tinctures have shown promise as a natural treatment for mental health disorders. This is because CBD has a natural ability to act positively on the brain’s receptors for serotonin, a neurotransmitter that regulates your mood. For more info on how CBD, from a joint or a tincture, can help you leave your anxieties behind you, read this. “What about CBG?” you ask? Well, according to one study, CBG is able to bind with receptors in your body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS) that are believed to relieve anxiety more directly than THC and even CBD.
Reducing Inflammation: We talk a lot about the endocannabinoid system (yes, you’ve got one!). Well, recent studies suggest that CBD can play a role in reducing inflammation by stimulating the endocannabinoid receptors found throughout your body. These receptors are involved in a variety of physiological processes like regulating inflammation; but also appetite, pain, mood, memory and beyond.
Antimicrobial Properties: Good news for germaphobes everywhere, a 2020 study found that CBG may have the ability to not only boost the immune system but actually fight off bacterial infections. Just remember, dropping into CBG doesn’t mean you can skip washing your hands.
Alleviating Symptoms of Certain Chronic Illnesses:
- Cancer: It’s no secret that THC has been used by cancer-patients undergoing chemotherapy to bring on the munchies, but CBD andCBG have also been linked to helping with symptoms like nausea, vomiting and pain as well.
- Autoimmune Issues: Research reviews from 2020 and 2021 suggest that CBD has anti-inflammatory properties, and that the magical cannabinoid may help to regulate immune responses.
- Heart Disease: Studies show that high blood pressure is linked to increased risks of heart related diseases like strokes, heart attacks and metabolic syndrome. Now there’s some promising data that suggests CBD can promote a more healthy heart and circulatory system by reducing high blood pressure.
In addition to the slew of benefits linked to the CBD and CBG, our tinctures contain quality MCT oil derived from coconuts. MCT oil packs its own wellness punch and has been proven to be a natural energy booster. Not only does MCT oil travel quickly through the body by breaking down easily, it contains healthy fatty acids that fight yeast and bacterial growth thanks to a slew of antimicrobial and anti-fungal properties. It's also an anti-inflammatory and has been shown to support healthy weight and fat loss while subtly reducing the risk of heart disease.
Can I take Dad Grass Tinctures before bed?
Definitely. We do! If you’ve ever spent the night tossing and turning, you know that lack of sleep can have incredibly adverse effects, in the short term and over your lifetime. Unfortunately, many of the treatments for troubled sleep can be just as harmful as being sleep deprived. That’s why we always have a Dad Grass Tincture bottle on our bedside table. By diminishing the stress, anxiety and pain, it helps us fall asleep (and stay asleep) without making us groggy in the morning.
If you are struggling to sleep, try our Nighttime Formula CBD+CBN TIncture.
How long will Dad Grass Tinctures take to kick in?
When you consume Dad Grass Tinctures sublingually (under the tongue), you can expect to feel the mellow vibe of the hemp working its magic in 15 to 45 minutes. Keep in mind that everyone is different and everyone’s bodies absorb cannabinoids at different rates, but you can generally expect to reach your peak at about 90 minutes. If you simply drink your tincture or consume it alongside food or a drink, your buzz will take longer to set in but may actually last longer.
When would I choose a Dad Grass Tincture instead of a Dad Grass Pre Rolled Joint?
¿Por qué no los dos? Trust us, there’s room for pre rolls, loose flower and tinctures in your daily routine. But we understand that it’s not always easy, or appropriate, for you to bust out a doobie. That’s where our tinctures come in.
- They’re discreet. Unlike other forms of cannabis (like joints), tinctures allow you to soak up the benefits of hemp cannabinoids without that oh-so-lovely smell. But just because our tinctures don’t smell, doesn’t mean they lack terpenes. We utilize full spectrum hemp in our tinctures, meaning that like our joints, they’re filled with all the best flavonoids, cannabinoids and terpenes.
- They’re convenient. With our tinctures, you get all the power of CBD or CBG-rich Organic hemp, no lighter or rolling papers required.
- They’re precise. Our dropper keeps you in control. You can tailor your exact amount so you achieve the vibe you’re after.
- They’re smoke free. Listen, it’s not lost on us that not everyone wants to smoke joints all day long. That’s why we gave you Dad Grass in a bottle.
- They’re fast. While inhalation is still the quickest way to feel the full effects of hemp, tinctures come in as a solid silver medalist when it comes to how long it takes to kick in.
Are Dad Grass Tinctures legal?
Ever since the passage of the 2018 Farm Bill, hemp-derived CBD and CBG products like Dad Grass Tinctures have been 100% legal on the federal level. And thanks to the cooperation of the good ol’ USPS, we can legally ship straight to your door in all 50 states. What’s the Farm Bill? Great question! Signed by President Obama, the original 2014 Farm Bill began a shift toward separating hemp from marijuana. Finally, cooler heads. The Farm Bill gave states and institutions of higher education the opportunity to create pilot programs to study the growth, cultivation and marketing of industrial hemp. The bill defined hemp according to its THC levels, not any botanical or other scientific destruction. It also required that THC concentration be less than 0.3% on a dry-weight basis. As a result of this legislation, 40 states created pilot programs to explore the untapped potential of this magical plant. Then, in 2018, a second Farm Bill finally divorced hemp and marijuana altogether, allowing licensed farmers to grow hemp as long as it does not contain more than 0.3% THC.
Are there any other ways to use Dad Grass Tinctures?
The best part about Dad Grass Tinctures is that they provide a totally customizable experience. Enjoying our tinctures in the classic sublingual method allows for a quick and easy way to get your chill on. Simply place your preferred number of drops right under the tongue and delay swallowing for about thirty to sixty seconds. Of course, you can always place a few drops into your beverage of choice or directly in your mouth and swallow immediately - just don’t expect to feel all those amazing benefits as quickly or as strongly strongly.
Are Dad Grass Tinctures tested by reputable 3rd party scientists?
Duh. We can’t help but go the extra mile to make sure what we’re serving you is 100% pure and of the highest quality. Every one of our tinctures has a little rose-colored label that helps you learn more about it. A quick glance will give you the batch number as well as the amount of CBD (in MGs) and THC (always below the federally legal amount of 0.3%) in the bottle. Scan the QR code and you’ll find the detailed testing report, also known as a Certificate of Analysis (COA), done by the same independent third-party labs that test the marijuana products you find in dispensaries.
Not only do our labs determine the precise concentrations of all cannabinoids like THC, CBD and CBG as well as the terpene profiles, they also make sure our tinctures are free of herbicides, pesticides, mold, fungus, bacteria, heavy metals or other toxins (basically all of the yucky stuff). This is especially important for tinctures because any contaminants that creep their way into the soil or onto the crop will become more concentrated, and therefore more toxic, when the plants are distilled into a liquid form.
Don’t worry, we nip this issue in the bud by only using 100% Organic hemp grown under the sun using regenerative farming techniques. Then, just to be absolutely sure that our tinctures are as perfect as you deserve, we put the finished product through a battery of tests and we always pass with flying colors.
Will Dad Grass Tinctures affect my sobriety?
Medical News Today states that “not only [are cannabinoids like CBD and CBG] not addictive, but it may even help treat drug addiction.” A 2015 study found that one of the benefits of consuming CBD is that it may actually help treat nicotine and cannabis addiction and mitigate side effects of detox like nausea, vomiting and pain to prevent possible relapse. In addition, CBD has been linked to easing the damage on the brain’s neurotransmitters caused by consistent alcohol or narcotic abuse and addiction. That being said, if you’re struggling with addiction, are working to become sober or are sober-curious, we highly recommend speaking to a licensed physician or a trusted source before consuming Dad Grass.

Will Dad Grass Tinctures make me fail a drug test?
Not likely. Drug tests weren’t designed to detect non-psychoactive cannabinoids like CBD, CBG or CBN. However, even in our Tinctures, there’s always going to be trace amounts of THC (always less than .3%). So if your education or career would be negatively affected by a failed drug test, we recommend that you don’t consume our products (but we’ll always be around when you’re ready). Read our full blog on CBD and drug tests here.
Will Dad Grass Tincture expire?
As with anything au natural, our tinctures do have an expiration date. You can find out the expiration date by scanning the QR code on every bottle. In general though, our Dad Grass Tinctures have a shelf life of about one year.
What’s a tincture anyway?
Tinctures are one of the key pillars of traditional herbal medicine and have been around for almost as long as humans have. On a basic level, tinctures are highly concentrated extracts of the medicinal components of plants. These extracts are usually made by soaking the bark, berries, leaves, roots, or flowers (dried or fresh) of plants in alcohol, vinegar or oil. While the word “tincture” traditionally refers to a formula where alcohol, vinegar or oil is the primary solvent, it can also refer to the larger category of concentrated liquid products derived from cannabis. Dad Grass Tinctures are fully oil based, so we use the word “tincture” in the latter sense.
Why Hemp and MCT?
Let’s talk about bioavailability, baby. Bioavailability (bi·o·a·vail·a·bil·i·ty /ˌbīōˌəvāləˈbilədē/) is “the proportion of a drug or other substance which enters the circulation when introduced to to body and so is able to have an active effect.” Woof. Let’s break that down.
When it comes to cannabinoids, bioavailability refers to the percentage of this CBD or CBG that is actually absorbed by the body. A lot of brands will claim that their products contain tons of cannabinoids. And a lot of people think that the more milligrams they consume, the better they will feel. But what really matters is how much actually makes it into your bloodstream. Our goal is to make sure you’re getting as much of the good stuff as possible. And that takes a bit of science.
Have you ever wondered why you have to take pills with a meal? Some medications, antibiotics and supplements have chemicals in them that are better absorbed by the body when accompanied by food. Basically, the meal increases the bioavailability of whatever pill you’re poppin’. It’s the same with CBD, CBG and MCT oil.
Unless it’s formulated to optimize for bioavailability, your tincture (or gummy, drink, etc) will fall short of delivering you the effects you expect because a good amount of the CBD or CBG will end up going down the toilet. Literally. Lucky for you, Dad Grass Tinctures are made with MCT oil. And MCT has hemp’s back. MCT (medium-chain triglycerides) increases the bioavailability of CBD or CBG by working as a delivery vehicle that protects the cannabinoids from breaking down before it reaches your bloodstream.
