Cannabis beverages are drinkable products infused with varying amounts of THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) and CBD (cannabidiol). These beverages capture the essence and benefits of cannabis in liquid form, making them a convenient alternative to traditional methods of consumption.
At Market 96, we only work with cannabis beverage brands that show commitment to impeccable product quality. From packaging to flavor and experience, no detail is overlooked when we are curating the beverages that we offer at our dispensary.
Beverages: This is the broadest category and includes everything from sparkling drinks to teas and juices. Each is infused with a specific dose of cannabis, often ranging from light to strong concentrations.
Shots: These are concentrated doses of cannabis-infused liquids. Shots are ideal for those who prefer a quick and potent dose. They can be consumed as-is or added to other non-infused drinks.
Aperitifs: Elegant and refined, these beverages are crafted to be enjoyed before a meal. They are typically lightly dosed, offering a mild effect to set the mood for what's to come.
Start by choosing the form of beverage you prefer. Do you want something that is carbonated, non-carbonated, potent, or light in its effects? The form will help you decide between a general beverage, shot or aperitif.
Typically cannabis beverages fall into three flavor categories: Fruity, herbal, and citrus. Fruity drinks are meant to have a dominant sweet flavor like pineapple or berry. Meanwhile, herbal beverages have a less-sweet and earthier taste like chamomile or mint. Lastly, bright and tangy citrus like orange or lemonade flavors are great for a slightly tart yet sweet flavor.
Lastly, what type of effect do you want your beverage to have? From relaxation to euphoria, or a balanced experience, ask your budtender for a recommendation and they will be happy to help you decide the best one for your needs.
Approach cannabis beverages with the same caution as any other cannabis product. Some tips to keep in mind, include:
The effects can vary, but typically they manifest within 30 minutes to 2 hours after consumption.
Yes, many people mix cannabis beverages with non-alcoholic drinks to create mocktails. However, it's advisable not to mix them with alcohol or other substances.
If you're new to cannabis beverages, it's advisable to start with the lowest possible dose and see how it affects you. Always read the product label for dosing information.
While the beverages are discreet, local laws and regulations about public cannabis consumption still apply. Always check local guidelines before consuming in public spaces.
Store them in a cool, dark place. Refrigeration might be recommended for some products, so always check the product label for specific storage instructions.
It's essential to be aware of local laws and regulations. While it might be legal in one area, transporting cannabis products across state lines or international borders can be illegal.
