Stonerpedia: Understanding Doses In Cannabis Drinks

Find out which dosages are best for your tolerance.

Weed drinks are for those who like to refresh their throats with a tasty beverage and expect the chilling touch of cannabinoids.

They are the perfect alternative when you want to have a good time but don’t feel like drinking alcohol, especially if you consider yourself sober curious.

Still, there are many questions to ask regarding the dosages of cannabis beverages, how long they take to kick in and their effects. We got you covered.

This guide was made to take our cannabis experiences to new heights with tasty beverages from reputable brands.

First of all, you want to check the label to ensure which cannabinoid is prominent in that beverage. Most of them contain CBD, THC, or their combination. Checking the label is crucial for starters.

If you’re dosing CBD, the non-psychoactive cannabinoid responsible for relaxation, pain relief, and anti-inflammation, most beverages offer 15 to 30 mg. Perfect for beginners.

But, seasoned cannabis users may feel more effects from a beverage with 30 to 50 mg CBD.

You can also find beverages with both CBD and THC. Their combined action will give you a fantastic bodily and cerebral experience.

Drinks like Blach Cherry Fizz contain 2.5 mg of each cannabinoid, which is an amazing starter for new users. Or try the 5 mg can if you are up for a stronger sensation.

Beverages vs. Edibles

THC beverages and edibles aren’t smoked but digested. This means they have the same effects and take the same time to kick in, right?

Well, that’s not entirely the truth. Most edibles are made with oil-based materials, which makes them take 45 to 90 minutes for the user to feel their effect.

On the other hand, beverages often have water-soluble formulations that make effects kick in between 8 and 15 minutes. Then, you don’t have to wait that much for the buzz to come.

But be careful. It is hard to take just a sip, especially when drinking something as tasty as Juicy Mango, so start slow!

THC Free Hemp-Based Drinks

Do you want a delicious drink that’s both beneficial and non alcoholic? Meet Little Saints, a mushroom drink that’s better behaved than some in this article. These plant-based non alcoholic mocktails contain the power of CBD, Botanical Terpenes, and the powerful Reishi mushroom.

Besides being delicious, these are a great way to take a break from THC-based drinks or have a calm mocktail during a cookout or get-together. 

They come in 4 flavors in different size options, including a 4, 8, and 16 pack. It’s an excellent choice for our sober curious consumers who want to enhance their senses without feeling intoxicated. 

One of the things we love about them is their eye-candy design and cans and incredibly relaxing vibe. Their flavors are closer to an actual cocktail than juice or a soft drink. If you want to get in the vibe or miss some of your favorite cocktails, the Little Saints can help you re-live that experience and feel relaxed without feeling intoxicated.

They come in Spicy Margarita for a tequila-like mocktail, Mimosa for a reinvented champagne classic, Paloma for that spicy, citrusy Mexican-inspired drink, or Ginger Mule for the perfect mix of herbal and CBD goodness.

THC Beverages & Newbies

If you’re new to cannabis and want to start with a light beverage, we suggest dosing anywhere from 2 to 5 mg THC. Just remember the quick onset of effects with beverages so go slowly with it.

Before you start drinking it, a good rule of thumb for beginners is to drink almost half of it, wait for some minutes, and analyze how you feel before drinking again.

Frequent Cannabis Users

If you’re a “social smoker” or only like to indulge in cannabis occasionally, a higher-dose beverage might be ideal for you.

You could opt for a 10 mg Classic Soda from Keef Brands, but if you’re looking for a more powerful high, try the Life H2O Strawberry Kiwi beverage at 100 mg. That is a true punch.

But hey, we’re not encouraging you to take back the entire bottle at first. Start slow, drink a little less than half of the can, and see how your body reacts.

Cannabis Connoisseurs

Lastly, this is for our seasoned cannabis users out there. We know you love a heavy-hitter, so we wanted to save the best for last and show you the ultimate THC beverage.

Delta 9 THC Fast-Acting Syrup By Enjoy Hemp

Syrups are the most versatile cannabis drinks ever. You can put it on any other drink, like sodas and juices. It adds flavor and the magic touch of cannabinoids to your favorite beverages. But they are also quick to kick in.

For the cannabis connoisseurs out there, we recommend Enjoy Hemp’s Delta 9 THC Fast-Acting Syrup. Each bottle has 420 mg of Delta 9 THC within 4 oz, or 120 ml, of syrup. You will feel the effects just 15 minutes after trying it, and they will last for 6 or 8 hours.

You can drink a dose of 20 ml of syrup directly, but it can be viscous or too sweet, so you should try to blend its flavor with other drinks. For instance, carbonated drinks pair perfectly with cannabis syrup, but that is for you to discover.

Try the different terpenes profiles to get different effects and flavors:

  • Sativa Watermelon for a boost
  • Sativa Blue Raspberry for euphoria
  • Hybrid Strawberry for zen
  • Indica Pineapple to chill
