Marijuana Drinks: Infusing Cannabis with Wine, Tea, and More
At the end of a long, exhausting day, nothing would be more satisfying than sitting back and relaxing with a nice, cold glass of… cannabis? That’s right. Our modern-day marijuana luxuries can extend to a cannabis-infused cocktail or beverage of your choice!
You don’t need a joint or an edible to enjoy the benefits of cannabis. Joints are hard to roll, and edibles take a long time to hit. Fortunately, there are other options! With marijuana-infused drinks, you can take your time to enjoy a nice refreshing cup of cannabis and a light high.
Learn all about the art of bud-infused beverages: how they work, what to look for when trying them, different types, the do-it-yourself route, and more!
How Do Marijuana-Infused Drinks Work?
Marijuana drinks work in the way you might expect them to (somewhat like edibles). They don’t require any extra equipment to enjoy, either! Just sip back and relax. Similar to edibles, drinks have to go through your digestive system before you start to notice any effects. The good news is they can last much longer than smoking or vaping without hitting too hard like an edible. Marijuana-infused drinks are still pretty potent, though. The way they move through your system might lock you into the couch.
What to Look Out For
When searching for the right cannabis drink, you still have options to choose from, including products made with Sativa, Indica, and hybrid strains. Marijuana drinks can vary in potency, so it’s always best to review the THC content per bottle to get the result you’re looking for.
Buy in bulk or enjoy one can at a time. You can finish some drinks on the market in one sitting, but other options (like a large bottle of wine) should be enjoyed over time. That being said, we also suggest looking at the shelf life of your drink of choice. Don’t let your good time expire!
The last and possibly most important thing to consider is… the taste! There’s no fun in sipping on a cup of your least favorite flavor. Luckily, there are plenty of options around to fit your preferences.
