Infused Cannabis Drinks are on the Rise

Infused cannabis drinks are all the craze right now.  With CBD and THC now being infused in beverages, how does a consumer choose the product best for them?

Depending on the cannabis laws in your state, you may be only able to purchase CBD beverages. Adult use legal cannabis states are paving the way for non-alcoholic drinks infused with THC. 

And there are some major players in this space including Constellation Brands and Lagunitas. This week, Pabst Blue Ribbon announced they are releasing a Cannabis Seltzer available soon in California. 

Consuming cannabis in a drink may affect you differently, so be cautious when trying new products. Give yourself time to see how the drink makes you feel before driving a car, for example. Be extra careful with adding alcohol to cannabis-infused beverages as the mix of alcohol and cannabis may react differently with your body. 

According to Chelsea Batton at The Manual, “Unlike pot brownies and other edibles, these cannabis-infused treats offer a uniquely precise dosing measure that lies lightly on your palate and takes it easy on your digestion”. Read more about the “Best THC Drinks” via The Manual here
