FAQs

HOW DO I USE ALT?

Simply add alt to your beverage of choice to create your very own infused cannabis beverage.

ALT is a highly adaptable and flavor neutral beverage enhancement that can be added to any drink of your choice. Simply pop off the cap and pick your dose using the pre-measured markings on the side of ALT’s glass vial and pour into any beverage for an enhanced cannabis experience.

WHAT KIND OF BEVERAGES SHOULD I MIX ALT INTO?

ALT is neutral in taste and was designed to adapt to all flavors.

ALT is flavor neutral and can be added to any drink––you pick your pleasure to enhance your human potential. We recommend ALT in iced coffee, a post-workout smoothie, kombucha, or seltzer with a twist of lemon or lime. Or mix ALT with tonic water, juices, citrus or simple syrups for a custom mocktail. The options are endless.

WHAT KIND OF EFFECT CAN I EXPECT FROM ALT?

A consistent and functional experience.

Our 5mg formula is a microdose of THC, so you can expect a balanced and euphoric body high. Great for socializing with friends, a midday mood boost to tackle those 3 o’clock emails, or for sipping in a mocktail to unwind at the end of the day, ALT was designed to enhance your human potential and deliver a consistent experience every time.

HOW QUICKLY WILL I FEEL ALT’S EFFECTS?

5–15 minutes for an initial onset and 20–30 mins for peak onset.

ALT’s revolutionary water-soluble formula absorbs directly into the bloodstream so you can expect a lightning fast onset––more akin to vaping or smoking ground flower than taking an edible. You will begin to feel a light body high in as little as 10–15 minutes.

HOW QUICKLY WILL I FEEL ALT’S EFFECTS?

Since each vial contains two servings, we recommend starting with half a vial and increasing the dose to meet your needs.

Each vial of alt contains two servings so we recommend starting with half a vial (about 2.5mg) and increasing the dose to meet your needs. Drinkables (water-soluble cannabis consumed in beverage form) tend to offer a more full body high than vaping or smoking. Because you feel it almost immediately, you can easily gauge the effects, and decide if and when you want to consume more.

HOW DOES ALT’S PRECISION DOSING WORK?

To ensure an even distribution of active cannabinoids, alt uses nanotechnology to create a consistent liquid cannabis experience.

ALT’s easy-to-use individual glass vials are pre-measured with illustrated milligram markings ranging from 1mg-5mg to ensure targeted, precision dose control. The cap on each vial of alt is a perfect 1mg measuring tool to help you find your perfect dose.

HOW LONG DO THE EFFECTS LAST? WHEN SHOULD I TAKE MORE?

Typically alt will last between 3–4 hours depending on person and dose. We recommend users to check in after an hour before taking a higher dose.

Like most other forms of cannabis, the experience will typically last between 3-4 hours depending on the person and the initial dose. We recommend starting with a lower dose, and checking back in after 30 minutes before taking more ALT. Do you recommend checking in after 30 minutes or one hour?

HOW IS ALT’S HIGH DIFFERENT FROM AN EDIBLE?

ALT delivers a more controlled euphoric lift, which is less psychoactive and intense than most high dose edible products.

Edibles have to be processed by the digestive system before taking effect, which can take anywhere from 45 minutes to an hour and a half, depending on the person. ALT’s high is more immediate, bypassing the digestive tract entirely and is absorbed directly into the bloodstream through the salivary glands so you’ll feel the effects in 10-15 minutes. ALT also delivers a more controlled, euphoric lift which is less psychoactive and intense than most high dose edible products making it the perfect product for boosting mood and tuning in without zoning out.

HOW IS THE ALT EXPERIENCE DIFFERENT FROM A VAPE?

ALT’s THC effect is light, clean, and gradual. Vapes by comparison are stronger, combustible, and immediate in effect.

ALT’s high is cleaner, lighter, and more gradual than a vaporizer high, allowing you to build a perfect euphoric, full body buzz without the harsh effects of diluents, fillers, and other harmful additives commonly found in vapes.

HOW IS THE ALT EXPERIENCE DIFFERENT FROM SMOKEABLE FLOWER?

By isolating THC and CBD from the plant, we deliver a highly targeted cannabinoid experience.

ALT’s high is more moderate and buildable than the immediate, intense head high you can expect from smoking flower. ALT provides more of an uplifting, full body high compared to most smokable blends. Another thing to note is that similar to hitting a vape, smoking flower––whether from a bong, a bowl, or in a pre-roll––can have harsh effects on your lungs from consistent use. Drinking cannabis, however, is clean and smoke free.

HOW IS ALT DIFFERENT FROM OTHER CANNABIS “DRINKABLES”?

ALT allows users to choose their own cannabis infused experience. We provide the active base cannabinoids, you choose the flavor.

Unlike the pre-flavored, pre-mixed cannabis beverages currently available, alt is a flavor neutral, zero calorie beverage enhancement. ALT provides the active base, water-soluble cannabinoids, you get to choose your own cannabis infused adventure with the beverage and flavor you want.

CAN I COOK WITH ALT OR USE IT IN HOT BEVERAGES?

It was designed to be mixed into a beverage, hot or cold.

While alt can be mixed into any cold or room temperature beverage of your choice, we wouldn’t recommend cooking with alt or adding it to a hot beverage as the heat might change the integrity of the water-soluble formulation.

HOW IS ALT MADE?

We source the best quality cannabis distillate as our starting material: our THC products use distillate containing 90% plus THC. From there we convert cannabis oil into liquid compatible beverage enhancers through our specialized formulation techniques.

WHAT ARE ALT’S INGREDIENTS?

We keep it simple with the highest quality cannabis distillate, distilled water, lecithin, and natural flavors.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF MICRODOSING CANNABIS?

Users can experience the positive benefits of cannabis without the high.

Microdosing cannabis allows you to safely and easily integrate THC into your daily routine. By taking small amounts of cannabis (below 5mg) throughout the day, consumers have reported an increase in productivity and focus, stimulated creativity, boost in mood, and so much more. Think of alt’s 5mg microdose formula as the key to a productive, sustainable buzz, not a couch-locked high. It’s you, only better.
