Here's What You Need To Know About Cannabis Drinks

Posted: Wed, Aug 23, 2023

Looking for an enjoyable and convenient way to get high? Consumption methods like smoking, vaping, and using cannabis edibles all have their perks. However, one of the best ways to enjoy the effects of marijuana is with cannabis drinks. However, there are a few things you need to know about cannabis drinks before you use them.

Cannabis drinks are beverages that have been infused with cannabinoids. They come in a variety of forms from sodas to seltzers to teas. You can even create cannabis beverages yourself using cannabis tinctures. You won’t want to miss out on these products, so here’s what you need to know about cannabis drinks.

Cannabis Drinks Take A While To Kick In

One of the first things you need to know about cannabis drinks is that they won’t hit you instantly. When you smoke or vape marijuana, you’re usually treated to an instant rush of euphoria and relaxation. While you’ll get these same effects from THC-infused beverages, you’ll need to wait a while for the effects to kick in.

According to research, the effects of orally-consumed cannabis can take 30 to 90 minutes to kick in. In some cases, it can take even longer. As such, you should practice patience after consuming a cannabis beverage and allow a couple of hours for the effects to hit you. Don’t try taking more during this time as you may end up taking too much.

Although cannabis beverages aren’t ideal for those who want a fast-acting high, they can give you a much longer-lasting high than other products. Once the effects kick in, they generally peak at around 2 to 3 hours after consumption but can last for anywhere from 4 to 12 hours. As such, they’re ideal for those who want long-lasting relaxation and relief.

THC Beverages Will Give You A Hard-Hitting High

Orally-consumed cannabis doesn’t just give you a longer-lasting high. It can also give you a much stronger high than other methods of consumption. Even a small dose of cannabis edibles or capsules can make you feel mentally stimulated and physically relaxed for hours on end. Cannabis beverages are no exception.

When consuming cannabis beverages, a 10mg dose is enough to give you a hard-hitting and long-lasting high. Even if you’re used to smoking or vaping cannabis, you should start with a small dose when using beverages. If you’re used to taking cannabis edibles, the experience will be similar.

Fortunately, it’s also easy to manage your dosage when using cannabis drinks. When you buy a can of cannabis-infused soda, a bottle of THC-infused juice, or a cannabis tea mix, you’ll see the dosage on the package. For example, if a can of cannabis soda contains 10mg of THC, you can choose to drink the whole can or simply drink half of it if you’d rather take a microdose of THC.

CBD Drinks Are Different From THC Drinks

When buying cannabis drinks, you’ll notice that some are infused with THC whereas others are infused with CBD. THC and CBD are two of the most abundant cannabinoids extracted from cannabis strains. However, while both provide an array of rewarding effects, they provide very different experiences when consumed.

If you’re looking for a psychoactive high, make sure you buy THC drinks. THC is the main psychoactive component in cannabis, responsible for delivering the mentally euphoric and physically soothing effects cannabis is known for. It’s especially important to control your dosage when using THC drinks as the effects can be particularly strong.

In contrast, CBD is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid and the effects are much more manageable. Even in high doses, CBD won’t get you high - although many users report a sense of calm and relaxation from taking CBD. Some drinks contain a blend of THC and CBD - these will give you the psychoactive effects of THC along with the calming properties of CBD.

Cannabis Drinks Come In Various Types And Flavors

Drinking cannabis-infused beverages is one of the most enjoyable ways to consume cannabis, especially since they come in all kinds of types of flavors. If you enjoy soda, you can find a range of cannabis sodas including cannabis cola, root beer, orange & cream soda, and more. You can also find cannabis seltzer or flavored water if you’d prefer a healthier pick.

The options don’t stop there, either. For a quick and easy way to get your dose of cannabis, you can use cannabis energy shots. You can also find cannabis-infused tea mixes, including options such as green tea and iced tea. You might even want to buy a range of cannabis drinks to see which type you enjoy the most.

You Can Make Cannabis Drinks Yourself

With so many readymade cannabis drinks available to buy, it’s hard to run out of options. With that said, some users might want to infuse cannabis into other beverages. Fortunately, this is very easy to do. All you need is a handy bottle of cannabis tincture and you can start making all kinds of cannabis drinks at home.

Cannabis tinctures are liquid products that give you a generous dose of cannabinoids in each drop. You can find THC tinctures, CBD tinctures, or tinctures providing a blend of both cannabinoids. Tinctures make it easy to measure your desired dosage and infuse it into all kinds of liquids.

For instance, you can add a dose of cannabis tincture to your tea, coffee, or hot chocolate. Alternatively, you might want to add some to your favorite fruit juice or smoothie. They can also be added to milkshakes, flavored water, sodas, and other kinds of beverages. You can even make cannabis cocktails using cannabis tinctures.


Cannabis drinks provide one of the best ways to get the effects of cannabis. From cannabis-infused sodas to cannabis teas and energy shots, these products provide a convenient and enjoyable way to get a dose of THC or CBD. You can find a wide range of cannabis drinks, along with various other high-quality products, at Coastal Cannabis CO.
