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.

Happy Flower’s Peach Bellini is a non-alcoholic cocktail with 25 mg broad-spectrum CBD.

It is perfect for people who don’t like the bitter taste of alcohol or its dizzy effects. Instead, this cocktail gives you the lucid yet body-relaxing action of CBD.

CBD is known to reduce tension in your muscles and makes them feel warm and pleasantly heavy. CBD also has anxiolytic incidence, which helps you feel comfortable in social situations. But, unlike alcoholic drinks, the Happy Flower Peach Bellini keeps you in control of your actions.

Enjoy the Happy Flower Peach Bellini at your next brunch, lunch or cookout. The seductive, subtle peach flavor will keep you coming back for more.

No hangovers included.

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.

Microdosing With Cannabis-Infused Beverages

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

A good rule of thumb for beginners is to drink almost half of it, wait a few minutes, and see how you feel before drinking more. Luckily, we know just the beverages for beginners and seasoned users looking to chill out and have fun.

Seattle-based Cycling Frog specializes in all-natural non-alcoholic THC seltzers for beginners, casual users, and connoisseurs looking for a subtle social buzz. For our beginners out there, we recommend Cycling Frog’s THC Light Seltzers, which contain 2mg THC and 4mg CBD per can.

The added dose of CBD ensures that you’ll have an enjoyable experience free from THC-induced anxiety and paranoia. Still, the 2mg THC will produce a buzz in those with lower tolerances. Check out the refreshing flavors below:

In case you’re looking for more of a buzz, opt for Cycling Frog’s THC Seltzers, containing 5mg THC and 10mg CBD per can. These are perfect for casual cannabis users looking for a social buzz or the connoisseur in search of gentle effects. See the delicious flavors below:

Choose your dose and flavor, and enjoy the ride.

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
