THC Syrup: What is It, Its Benefits, and Its Uses?

Delta-9 THC comes in many forms, edibles being one of them. Edibles are a great way to get the psychoactive effects of THC you’re likely seeking in a tasty, slow-acting manner. Because edibles go through the digestive system, they take more time to get absorbed into the body than other forms of THC. This can actually be a good thing, especially if you’re looking for something more gradual. After all, there’s nothing like the delayed gratification of taking an edible to really make you happy you indulged! One form of THC that makes for the perfect addition to an edible is THC syrup.

Sweet, sticky, and highly potent, THC syrup is an easy way to transform any beverage into something a little more special.

What is THC Syrup?

Everyone loves syrup, right? What’s not to love? When you were a kid, adding maple syrup to your pancakes or waffles may have been your jam. Nowadays, there are other kinds of syrup you can add to the mix, THC syrup being one of them. Keep in mind that THC syrup acts quite a bit differently than the maple syrup you put on your pancakes. Although it is still sweet and thick, it has the added benefit of being a cannabis concentrate.

This versatile liquid cannabis product is derived from mixing cannabis extract with other ingredients to create the thick, syrupy consistency. THC syrups are notoriously highly concentrated with either Delta-9 or Delta-8 THC, depending on the product. 

What are the Benefits of THC Syrup?

The versatility of THC syrup is one of its primary benefits. While this is still an edible, its effects tend to be faster acting than most other forms of edible THC. Some forms of THC syrup kick in in as little as 15-30 minutes. Still, others will take longer depending on their dose and form, so it’s still best to wait a while before upping your dosage.

Additional potential benefits of taking THC syrup include:

  • Pain and inflammation relief
  • Help with nausea
  • Enhanced relaxation
  • Help with insomnia
  • Reduced anxiety
  • …and more!

How to Use THC Syrup

There are several ways you can use THC syrup. In fact, its versatility is one of the best things about it!

Using THC Syrup Sublingually

Some people like to take THC syrup in the same way they would use Delta-9 tinctures, i.e., under the tongue. To do this, all you need to do is dispense a small amount of the syrup under your tongue, hold it there for about 10-30 seconds, and swallow.

Adding THC Syrup to a Mixed Drink/Beverage

Upgrade your favorite drinks and make them a little more fun by adding THC syrup. Perfect for teas, juices, seltzers, or other soft drinks, THC syrup makes a sweet and effective addition. Keep in mind that drinking the syrup will mean its effects will take a little longer to kick in, but that’s to be expected. Just be patient and go along for the ride.

Adding THC Syrup to Edibles Recipes

If the cookie, brownie, pie, or cake recipe you’re making calls for syrup, consider swapping your usual baking syrup with the THC variety. You can even bring it into your morning routine on top of pancakes to bring you back to your childhood days.
