Your Guide to Cannabis Beverages & THC Drinks
As cannabis becomes more widely accepted and legalized, there are more consumption options than ever, like cannabis beverages. And they’re catching on: 45 percent of adults have reduced or replaced their alcohol consumption with cannabis. Here’s why we love cannabis beverages, and why you should try one at your next social outing.
Cannabis Beverages vs. Alcohol
Excessive drinking can lead to a number of physical and mental health issues, from liver disease and cancer to depression and anxiety. Cannabis on the other hand may actually help with certain conditions, and you don’t have to give up the buzz. THC drinks provide a subtle high typically within 15 minutes — much faster than alcohol and no hangover the next day.
Control Your Dosage
For those who are new to cannabis or just want a more mild experience, cannabis drinks are a great option. Most cannabis beverages contain small amounts of THC (2–10mg per serving) compared to other edibles, so it’s much easier to manage your intake. (CBD also helps balance out the psychoactive effects of THC.) Cannabis drinks also tend to be more convenient than smoking or vaping, especially in a bar or other social setting.
Our Favorite Cannabis Beverages
There are a number of cannabis drinks on the market, but we have our tried and true favorites to help you get started. (Visit our website to see which brands we carry at your closest Urbn Leaf dispensary.)
Crafted in California, Cann social tonics are made with all natural ingredients and contain THC and CBD. They offer a variety of refreshing flavors like ginger lemongrass and grapefruit rosemary, as well as seasonal options like cranberry sage. Their Roadies are perfect for parties: Mix into a seltzer or other beverage of your choice, or add two to a pitcher to share with friends.
We love Keef not only for their flavors, but also beverage options. They offer cannabis sodas in classic flavors, as well as cannabis mocktails in fruit punch, pineapple and lemonade. We also carry their low calorie and low sugar enhanced fruit water, Keef Life H2O. It contains 10 servings of 10mg THC per bottle and is equipped with a resealable dosing cap for precise and consistent dosing every time.
