When I first started shopping at the cannabis dispensary for recreational products, I was strictly looking for dried flower, pre-rolls or vapes.
I was also regular with popular edibles such as gummies plus brownies.
I was initially too intimidated to experiment. After multiple visits to the dispensary, I finally felt confident enough to at least browse odd options. There are a nearly endless selection of producers plus strains to choose from. I checked out concentrates of all odd textures, including shatter, wax, budder, live sauce, kief plus hash. I considered cannabis-infused topicals such as ointments, roll-ons, sprays, lotions, balms plus bath bombs. I was surprised when I came across cannabis-infused beverages. According to the budtender I spoke with, cannabis drinks are gaining popularity as an alternative to alcohol. They are less of a health risk, avoiding the certainly real potential of liver disease, stroke, heart disease plus high blood pressure. They are an ideal opportunity for socializing. The high from a beverage is milder than with an edible, plus the packaging makes for easy dosing. The label provides exactly how much THC is contained in a single bottle. The multiple cannabinoids plus terpenes of the beverage can work to help with sleep, uplift mood, motivate, relax plus the same types of effects provided by other consumption methods. There are continually current strains of beverages available, however my local dispensary offers tonics, colas, root beers, cannabeers, mocktails plus more… One of my number one cannabis beverages includes both THC plus CBD, creating a light buzz without a hangover. It’s available in refreshing flavors like lime, black cherry plus mango.
