Marijuana drinks are generally enjoyed by cannabis users who prefer cannabis to alcohol or want to experience cannabis in a different way. Why? Because a cannabis drink allows you to connect with other people who might prefer beer or wine without feeling like you stand out from the crowd. That being said, if you like edibles, cannabis drinks can also be a great option to have at home.
A marijuana drink or drink is a type of THC- and/or CBD-infused product, also called a THC drink, that is becoming more popular every month. These drinks include:
|Cannabis-Infused Seltzers||Cannabis Teas||Cannabis-Infused Soda|
|THC seltzer and kombucha are the most common products, and they come in a variety of flavor blends. If you prefer iced tea, you can buy cannabis tea in many local pharmacies. There are also THC and CBD tea bags, although they are a bit harder to find. These THC drinks are similar to seltzer but taste like cola.||If you prefer iced tea, you can buy cannabis tea in many local pharmacies.

How Do Liquid THC Drinks Work?
Most marijuana drinks include CBD (cannabidiol) and/or THC in different ratios. While THC will give you the psychoactive effects you expect from cannabis products, the CBD is a less-intoxicating ingredient that helps create a more balanced experience than you might get from a product with only THC. There are also some beverages on the market that are strictly CBD-focused, but for the purposes of this guide, we’ll focus on those that contain both.
To make drinks with THC, most manufacturers use a process called nanoemulsion. Nanoemulsion breaks down cannabis oil into nanoparticles, which are then mixed into a liquid, whether it be juice, coffee, seltzer or water. This process provides a better blend so consumers can be sure they are getting a more even dose of THC with every sip.
From there, THC seltzer and other drinks work just like any other edible. When you sip a drink, THC and CBD enter your body and begin to affect the endocannabinoid system. This can lead to the feeling of intoxication commonly experienced by cannabis products. It usually only takes about half an hour to feel the effects of a cannabis drink.
How Should You Consume Marijuana Drinks?
When it comes to all cannabis products, our advice is the same: start small and work your way up slowly. This is because total doses of THC fluctuate depending on the cannabis drink and manufacturer. For example, some products are made with a microdosing model in mind—every drink contains enough cannabinoids that you can feel the psychoactive effects of the drink without feeling overly intoxicated.
Why Are Cannabis Seltzers and THC Drinks so Popular?
Many cannabis enthusiasts turn to cannabis shakes and THC drinks for their fun flavor, unique effects, and social friendliness. In addition, many cannabis drinks are low in calories, making them a strong competitor to some popular hard seltzer brands. In this case, THC drinks can be a great way to tick the box. There is no doubt that the versatility of cannabis seltzer is driving its popularity, and we expect this trend to continue as more companies embrace ways to make marijuana drinks.
As we found out today, in order to consume cannabis products containing THC and sweeteners for them, there are many ways. Do not rush anywhere and do not rush to take as much as possible in pursuit of an incredible effect, this can harm your mental state and health. Before you make any decisions, do an examination of your body, talk to yourself about whether you need it at all, and then get down to business. We think you won’t regret it!

Some brands have dosages that range from 2mg THC (with 4mg CBD) to 5mg THC (no CBD), while other companies offer dosages that can go as high as 100mg THC per drink. You should always know your tolerance level and consume accordingly, and of course, if in doubt, choose a lower dose (even if it means just a few sips of the drink).

How can you purchase a THC-infused drink?

There are some states that do not allow cannabis beverage sales in state-approved dispensaries, so you’ll need to check local menus to see what’s available in your state.
