Have you ever thought about drinking your cannabis? You read it right! Cannabis-infused drinks are now sweeping the market and it seems that the trend is only getting started. It’s not that cannabis or to be more specific, Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) infused drinks are something new but these weedy drinks have progressed leaps and bounds in consistency and flavor over the last few years.
With marijuana legalization becoming more prevalent and people looking for an alternative to alcohol, more and more folks are turning to THC beverages. In fact, one study suggests that 20% of consumers now prefer THC drinks to relax and chill out – without feeling the headache that comes with alcohol consumption.
Maybe you’ve tried cannabis brownies, cookies, and gummies in the past and it didn’t go so well for you, so you’ve decided they are not for you. But this is the time to reconsider because there is a huge difference between traditional, THC-laden edibles and the modern THC beverages.
THC Drinks Don’t Produce A Terrible Hangover
THC beverages are not like those weed brownies or chocolates where you are afraid to enjoy another piece, knowing it won’t end well. With a THC drink, you can savor a 16 fl oz can and not worry about suffering the side effects the next day.
THC Drinks Have A Faster Uptake Than Other Edibles
A quicker uptake means you will start feeling the “effects” of the THC way faster than if you ate a Hashish Fudge. This is because the absorption of the THC in the drinks (made with nano-emulsions) starts inside the mouth via saliva. This speeds up the onset to hit your in 30 minutes or less. On the other hand, edibles like chocolates or baked goods must be fully digested for the absorption process to start, which can take several hours.
THC Drinks Are Better For New Consumers
You’ll feel the effects of the THC drink way more quickly than with conventional edibles. This means there won’t be any chance of you consuming too much THC or getting too high by eating too many “goodies” and not waiting long enough to feel the full effects.
Considering all the above factors, it’s easy to see why THC drinks are becoming so popular among the cannabis consumers. Until recently, most THC beverage manufacturers had hard time creating a delicious tasting drink because cannabis oil and water don’t mix. If you had a cannabis drink a few years ago and it tastes chunky with bits of cannabis floating in your drink, you know what we are talking about.
Well, thanks to the new technology that has allowed manufacturers to create better-tasting weed drinks, reaching mass consumers who are looking for an alcohol alternative.
