THC 101: What Is a THC Syrup?

Austin Greenawalt, a cannabis enthusiast, blogger, and social media writer, has a keen eye for making cannabis feel more approachable, hoping to educate the public on the plant’s therapeutic and recreational benefits.

Crafted with a range of THC-derived cannabinoids and fresh, fruity flavors, THC syrup (sometimes called THC lean) offers a slight change of pace for many adults. While THC gummies are one of the most popular ways to enjoy THC’s cerebral effects, these syrups contain all the benefits of a THC gummy—but with some notable advantages.

In this article, we’ll break down the differences between THC syrup and other popular THC products, show you how to use a syrup, and introduce you to a few of our favorite syrup products.

Hemp THC vs. Cannabis THC

But first, a little caveat into the type of THC syrup we’re discussing. The cannabinoids in these syrups have been derived from hemp, a cannabis plant with minuscule (legal) levels of delta 9 THC. As the most abundant THC molecule, delta 9 THC is often solely associated with THC’s effects on the mind and body. But there are other naturally occurring THC molecules, each offering its own unique cerebral effects. Companies extract these hemp-based molecules, like delta 8, delta 10, and THC-P, to produce legal THC products.

So, these syrups aren’t “weed syrup,” “marijuana syrup,” or “cannabis syrup.” They’re hemp-derived syrup containing legally compliant levels of delta 9 THC.

Finding the Best THC Syrups

The best tip for finding tasty, trippy THC syrup is to filter your search by brands. Over the past few years, the market for hemp-based products has skyrocketed, leading to a surge in hemp-derived CBD and THC gummies, vapes, cookies, and, yes, syrups. But with this plethora of options, the waters have muddied, and searching for the best THC syrup products can get complicated.

When looking for a reliable, reputable brand, find one that:

  • Uses organic hemp
  • Uses natural ingredients and flavorings
  • Uses a safe, residue-free extraction process
  • Publishes third-party, lab-tested Certificates of Analysis

If you’re looking for a company that checks all these boxes, while making delightfully delicious THC syrups, add TRĒ House to your list. TRĒ House has a slew of syrups that other companies are struggling to emulate—and they are strong.

Two of their most popular THC syrups are:

Delta 9 THC + Delta 8 THC Bussin' Berry Syrup

Bussin’ Berry THC Syrup contains effective doses of delta 8 and 9, providing unique cerebral effects in just a single serving. Many adults say delta 8’s effects are slightly tamer, slightly more muted than delta 9’s. TRĒ House’s Bussin’ Berry Syrup boosts the effects of this lesser-known cannabinoid with those from delta 9, creating a one-of-a-kind experience with a naturally delicious berry flavor.

HHC Purple Stuff Syrup

Purple Stuff HHC Syrup combines a natural, tasty grape flavor with an effective dose of HHC to create some serious psychotropic effects. Many users say that HHC feels slightly more energizing than delta 9. With their delicious Purple Stuff syrup, TRĒ House captures the nuances of this alternative cannabinoid, giving users a taste of the exciting world of legal, hemp-derived cannabinoids.

THC Syrup vs. Other THC Products

THC syrup (a.k.a. THC lean) has a few notable benefits compared to other popular THC products, like THC tinctures, THC vapes, THC gummies, and THC cookies.

Longer-Lasting Effects

A THC syrup takes some time to incite euphoric effects. When you enjoy an edible or sip on a THC syrup, the cannabinoids travel through your digestive system before absorbing into your body. This process takes around 30 minutes to two hours, depending on bioavailability factors. So, you won’t feel the effects of a THC syrup immediately. Cannabinoids from a THC vape and THC tincture, on the other hand, filter directly into your bloodstream, providing quicker effects.

But because it takes longer to absorb into the bloodstream, THC syrup provides longer-lasting effects than vapes and tinctures.

Sip the Experience

Compared to gummies, THC fruit syrups let you prolong the effects of THC over time. Simply top a drink off with a serving or a few drops of THC syrup and periodically sip it to maintain its psychotropic effects. With edibles, you just take a serving and can’t control the duration of your experience. However, if you casually sip a THC syrup, you can extend and control the potency of your experience.

How to Use a Syrup

For your first time, it’s always best to start with the recommended serving. You can add this syrup to a drink like sparkling water or soda. Then, enjoy the syrup-infused drink in a comfortable place. Over the next few hours, the effects of this syrup will gradually set in. Sip more of your drink if you’d like to boost or maintain these effects. If you’d like to feel the effects set in sooner, take the whole serving at once, but make sure not to take more syrup than the recommended amount your first time around. Also, while these syrups are like recess for adults, keep them out of reach from children and pets.

Shopping for Syrup

Finding the right brand should be your first step when shopping for THC syrup. Reliable brands, like TRĒ House, use organic hemp, natural ingredients (including sugar and flavoring), a residue-free extraction process, and third-party labs to test their products. This checklist will help you in your search for the best THC syrup. We wish you all the best on your THC adventures!
