Previously, we discussed what it is that really makes our cannabis flower so special. In this blog post, we’ll dive into the world of cannabis-infused drinks, exploring their benefits, how they work, and how you can enjoy them as part of your wellness journey.
The Rise of Cannabis Beverages
In recent years, the cannabis industry has experienced a surge of new products, with one of the most significant developments being the rise of cannabis-infused beverages. These drinks offer a unique and refreshing alternative to traditional methods of cannabis consumption, such as smoking or vaping.
Furthermore, cannabis beverages have emerged as a popular new alternative to alcoholic drinks, offering a refreshing and innovative way for consumers to enjoy the social aspects of drinking without the adverse effects of alcohol.
Cannabis-infused drinks provide an appealing option for those looking to unwind, relax, or socialize without the hangovers, empty calories, or potential long-term health risks associated with alcohol consumption.
The rise of cannabis beverages as an alternative to alcohol also reflects a broader shift in societal attitudes towards cannabis and its potential benefits. As the stigma surrounding cannabis use continues to dissipate and more people become educated about its therapeutic properties, cannabis-infused drinks offer a way to enjoy the plant’s benefits in a familiar and accessible format.
One trend within the realm of cannabis beverages is the focus on microdosing and controlled consumption. Cannabis drinks from trusted brands come with clearly labeled dosages, making it easy for consumers to manage their intake and avoid overconsumption. This emphasis on precision and control has made cannabis beverages particularly appealing to new users and those who prefer a milder experience.
In addition, the widespread use of water-soluble cannabinoids in these beverages allows for faster absorption, resulting in quicker onset times compared to traditional edibles, providing a more predictable and manageable experience.
Another trend shaping the cannabis beverage market is the emphasis on health and wellness. As consumers become increasingly conscious of the ingredients in their products and the impact on their overall well-being, many cannabis beverage brands are focusing on all-natural, low-calorie, and low-sugar options.
This shift towards healthier alternatives has led to the development of innovative formulations, such as cannabis-infused kombucha, herbal teas, and functional beverages designed to promote relaxation, focus, or energy. As the cannabis industry continues to evolve, we can expect to see even more creative and health-conscious beverage options catering to the diverse needs and preferences of consumers.
Cannabis-infused drinks offer several advantages over other forms of consumption:
- Discreet and convenient: Cannabis beverages provide a subtle way to consume cannabis without attracting attention. They’re perfect for social settings or when you’re on the go.
- Controlled dosing: Many cannabis drinks come with clearly labeled dosages, making it easy to control your intake and avoid overconsumption.
- Smoke-free alternative: For those who prefer not to smoke or vape, cannabis beverages offer a lung-friendly option.
- Wide variety: With a range of flavors and cannabinoid profiles, there’s a cannabis beverage to suit every palate and preference.
How Cannabis Beverages Work
As we mentioned above, cannabis beverages typically use water-soluble cannabinoids, which allows for faster absorption into the bloodstream.
This means that you may feel the effects of a cannabis-infused drink more quickly than with an edible, often within 15 to 45 minutes. However, the duration of the effects may be shorter compared to edibles, lasting around 2 to 4 hours.
It’s essential to start with a low dose and be patient before consuming more, as individual reactions to cannabis beverages can vary. We recommend beginning with a 2.5mg to 5mg serving of THC for new consumers or those with a low tolerance.
