What Are Cannabis Drinks From a Cannabis Drinks Dispensary?

Generally, they’re exactly what they sound like: beverages infused with THC. However, some do consider CBD-infused drinks to fall under the cannabis drink category. Technically speaking this is incorrect. Only beverages that contain cannabis’ active ingredient, THC, qualify as cannabis drinks. CBD drinks may prove calming and delicious to many consumers, but they have no psychoactive effect and do not appear on THC drug screenings. On the other hand, THC-infused cannabis drinks do show up on a drug test and will produce a high. Keep reading to learn how cannabis drinks are made and how they compare to alcohol. 

How Are Cannabis-Infused Drinks Made?

Cannabis infusion is a science. By adding liquid carbon dioxide to an unprocessed cannabis material while it’s under intense heat and pressure, THC nanoparticles eventually fuse with the liquid base being used. In this case, the liquid base is a tasty Strains Dispensary beverage. 

How Long Do Cannabis Drinks Take to Kick in?

When dosed at around 10 milligrams (mg) of THC per serving, typical cannabis drink effects commence noticeable side effects within 10-20 minutes. Full-serving effects can take up to one hour to notice. No matter how much cannabis you’re consuming in a concentrated time, it’s important to take your dosages slowly and with caution.

Cannabis-Infused Butter 

Cannabis oil is lipid-soluble and requires a carrying oil to bind to when making foods. Most cannabis foods and drinks are made with a special butter that has been infused by cannabis oil containing all of the cannabinoids extracted from the flower. When making cookie edibles, infused butter is used in lieu of traditional butter so that the resulting cookies contain the cannabinoids needed.
