Keep reading to learn what exactly a cannabis beverage is, why the cannabis beverage is becoming many people’s favorite way to consume cannabis and the top cannabis beverage brands and companies in California!
Cannabis Beverage History
As cannabis legalization sweeps across the country, consumers are looking for more and different ways to consume the wonder plant and make use of its wellness benefits. The love of edibles has always been around, kicked into high gear when Alice B. Toklas published her Hashish Fudge recipe back in the 50s, as edibles can provide a stronger, longer-lasting high than smoking alone. But making a cannabis-infused beverage has been historically tricky, as cannabinoids, being fat-soluble, do not traditionally mix well with water. Cannabinoids and alcohol mix well, but it is currently illegal to combine alcohol and cannabis within the United States.
When cannabis beverage companies finally cracked the code on how to perfect the cannabis-infused beverage without involving alcohol, all bets were off. Suddenly, cannabis beverage brands were releasing everything from sodas to sparkling waters to coffee, to even non-alcoholic beers and wines. There are lemonades, iced teas and beverage-enhancer flavor drops designed for everyone, from those who are looking to relax to those who need energy to finish the week off strong.
Cannabis Edible vs Cannabis Beverage
Cannabis edibles must be digested completely before the body can begin the absorption process. While edibles can provide a stronger and longer-lasting high than other methods of consumption, a user may need to wait hours to feel the full effects. However, with a cannabis-infused beverage, cannabinoids dissolve immediately thanks to nanoemulsions. They begin to be absorbed through your saliva and into your body the moment they hit your mouth. This means you may start to feel the beverage’s effects in as little as 30 minutes. For this reason, many people seeking fast pain relief or relaxation turn to cannabis beverages.
Cannabis Beverage Popularity
More and more cannabis beverage companies are popping up as more and more consumers desire cannabis beverages. Cannabis beverages are perfect for those who:
- Want to enjoy cannabis discreetly, without smoke or vapor
- Want to enjoy a relaxing buzz without any of the health or safety concerns associated with alcohol
- Want a cannabis-infused digestible product that works faster than a conventional edible
- Want to combat the anxiety often associated with parties or social events so they can exhibit the most stress-free, relaxed version of themselves
These socially acceptable, smoke-free cannabis products are easy to use, require no additional accouterments and are perfect for beginners and experienced cannabis aficionados alike. Since the effects of cannabis beverages are felt sooner than the effects of cannabis edibles, it’s less likely that you’d inadvertently consume too much and get too high. And it cannot be understated that cannabis-infused beverages have come a long way since their inception. Today’s cannabis beverages can be found in a wide variety of forms and flavors that are both refreshing and delicious.
