Cannabis drinkables, also known as cannabis-infused beverages or drinkable edibles, are beverages that have been infused with cannabinoids, such as THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) and CBD (cannabidiol), which are compounds found in the cannabis plant. These beverages are designed to provide the effects of cannabis consumption in a liquid form, similar to traditional drinks like water, soda, tea, coffee, or energy drinks.
Cannabis drinkables come in a variety of forms, flavors, and potencies, catering to different preferences and desired effects. They can be found in the following types:
THC-Infused Beverages: These contain THC, the psychoactive compound in cannabis that produces the “high” feeling. THC-infused drinkables can range from mild to potent, and their effects can vary depending on the dosage and individual tolerance.
CBD-Infused Beverages: These contain CBD, a non-psychoactive compound known for its potential health and wellness benefits. CBD drinkables offer relaxation and potential therapeutic effects without the intoxicating effects of THC.
Balanced THC-CBD Beverages: Some products combine both THC and CBD in specific ratios to create a balanced effect that may provide some of the benefits of both compounds while minimizing the intensity of THC’s psychoactive effects.
Flavorful Varieties: Cannabis drinkables can come in a wide range of flavors, mimicking traditional beverage options like fruit juices, herbal teas, sparkling water, and more.
Different Formats: They can be found in formats such as ready-to-drink bottles, powdered drink mixes, and concentrated liquid shots.
Dosing and Potency: Similar to other cannabis edibles, it’s important to be cautious with dosing, as the effects of cannabis can take longer to kick in when consumed as a drink compared to inhaling it. Start with a low dose and wait for the effects to fully set in before consuming more.
Cannabis drinkables have gained popularity due to their discreet nature and the novelty of consuming cannabis in a liquid form. They also offer an alternative for those who prefer not to smoke or are looking for more controlled dosing options. However, it’s important to consume cannabis drinkables responsibly and be aware of the legal regulations regarding their use in your area.
As with any cannabis product, individual reactions can vary, and it’s recommended to start with a low dose and wait to gauge the effects before consuming more. At Cannabaska we can help you to choose the prefect product for you.
