Understanding Cannabinoid Dosages In Weed Drinks

Find out which dosages are best for your tolerance. Created with Keef.

There are many questions to ask regarding the dosages of cannabis beverages, how long they take to kick in and their effects.

This guide was made in collaboration with weed drink masters Keef, taking our cannabis experiences to new heights with tasty beverages.

You want to check the label to ensure which cannabinoid is prominent in that beverage, for starters.

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

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

Beverages vs. Edibles

Because THC beverages and edibles aren’t smoked and are digested, this means they have the same effects take the same time to kick in, right?

That’s not entirely the truth, as most edibles are made with oil-based materials that can take 45 to 90 minutes to feel their feel effect.

On the other hand, beverages often use water-soluble formulations that make effects kick in between 8 and 15 minutes, so start slow!

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. Remember the quick onset of effects with beverages and start slow.

We suggest you snag a delightful and soothing THC Beverage from Keef. Our favorite is the Blue Razz Classic Soda that comes with 10 mg THC. For beginners, a good rule of thumb is starting slow, drinking half, and analyzing how you feel.

If you’re a “social smoker” or only indulge in cannabis on occasions, a higher dosed beverage might be ideal.

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.

We’re not encouraging you to take back the entire bottle at first.

Start slow, drink a little less than half, and see how your body reacts.
