One of the greatest things about cannabis is how truly versatile this natural compound is and how many different ways there are to enjoy it. If you don’t want to smoke it, you can vape it. Don’t like smoking or vaping? Then you have edibles. Fancy having a drink with friends, now we have cannabis-infused drinks. It truly is the plant that just keeps on giving.
In the following article, we’re going to take a closer look at everything you need to know about cannabis-infused drinks and why they’re proving to be so popular.
Exploring Cannabis-Infused Drinks!
Hanging out with friends in social situations usually involves drinking alcoholic beverages, regardless of if you really love the calories or the hangover the next day. Often, ducking out to smoke or vape some cannabis or even simply taking an edible isn’t really the same as socially drinking with your friends.
However, with a cannabis-infused drink, you can still hang out with friends, drink in hand, so to speak, and enjoy the festivities without feeling left out or out of place. So, apart from sharing a drink with friends, what else do cannabis-infused drinks offer?
In the noticeably short time that cannabis-infused drinks have been available on the market, they’ve come a long way in the flavor department. Some of the earlier cannabis drinks were, let’s say, just a little bit lacking in flavor, but they have quickly turned it around to produce some absolutely delicious flavor combinations. However, it’s important to note that the higher the cannabinoid and terpene content of the drink, the more you are going to get that ‘natural weed’ flavor.
We have all experienced the unpredictable wait time as cannabis edibles slowly make their way through our digestive system. Sometimes the effects can be felt in fifteen minutes. Other times, it takes up to an hour. It all depends on your metabolism and the condition of your digestive system. However, with cannabis-infused drinks, the wait time from consuming them until you feel their effects are much shorter because rather than a solid, your body only has to break down a liquid which is much faster. Most people feel the effects from cannabis drinks between 15 and 30 minutes after consuming them, and the effects usually last anywhere from 2 – 4 hours.
Low-calorie or low-sugar beverages are becoming increasingly popular, and cannabis-infused drinks are no different. Consumers are searching for low-calorie drinks with natural ingredients, and cannabis-infused beverage companies are rising to the challenge.
When it comes to cannabis-infused drinks, ultimately, the choice of whether or not you try them is entirely up to you. However, if you enjoy getting high or relaxing with friends and you’re looking for an alternative to smoking, vaping, or edibles, then cannabis-infused drinks are a great option. As the popularity of cannabis drinks increases, we’re going to see a lot more choices become available.
