Product QUIZ

What are the benefits of THC drinks?

Through the miracle of nano-emulsification, we've created a water-friendly cannabis extract that blends perfectly into your favorite juices, lemonades, sparkling waters, and teas. Our cannabis drinks deliver the legendary health benefits of THC in an easy-to-consume, delicious, and discreet form.

Liquid cannabis offers unique advantages over other consumption methods, especially unhealthy ones such as smoking and vaping. Remember that THC-infused beverages provide faster absorption as well as offer more consistent dosing and duration of effects. 

Are you ready to unlock the perks of liquid THC? Here are some more reasons why low-dose THC drinks are the best way to consume cannabis:

  1. Low-dose cannabis may reduce inflammation, providing potential relief for conditions such as arthritis and chronic pain. 
  2. At low doses, THC and CBD can promote relaxation and improve sleep quality, benefiting those with insomnia or sleep disorders. Canadian researchers revealed that 71% of patients with sleep disturbances reported a subjective improvement in sleep or sleep-related conditions after being treated with THC or the combination of THC and CBD. 
  3. Small doses of THC and CBD may offer a mild calming effect, helping people cope with stage fright and performance anxiety. CBD and THC may help with focus and concentration, as well as contribute to relieving anxiety. A 2018 study showed the potential benefits of CBD in reducing nervous behaviors via the suppression of receptors associated with anxiety.
  4. THC and CBD's anti-inflammatory properties could alleviate migraine symptoms and reduce the frequency of migraine episodes.
  5. Low-dose THC may lower intraocular pressure, potentially benefiting those who struggle with glaucoma by slowing down the progression of the disease.
  6. THC and CBD may help manage chemotherapy-related symptoms such as pain, nausea, and loss of appetite, improving overall quality of life.

If you're all about savoring every bite and crave an explosion of flavors, look no further than our Relax Plus gummies. These delectable edibles pack a punch with 25 mg of CBD and just 5 mg of Delta 9, aiming to melt away tension and amplify those positive vibes.

"Like the effects this has on me. I can take it to relax, but still be able to concentrate and do things without feeling buzzed."

How long do THC drinks last?

The THC from the cannabis beverage gets absorbed into the bloodstream rather quickly after consumption. Since they’re not fully digested, THC mixers typically have a shorter duration of effect compared to gummies. Once the effects of THC beverages kick in, they can stick around for anywhere from 2 to 6 hours. 

Did we mention that our THC drops also contain cannabidiol? Cannabidiol is another major cannabis compound that offers a plethora of therapeutic and medicinal benefits. Combining microdoses of THC and CBD creates an entourage effect, where both compounds work together to provide both a mental and physical boost.

Experience the advantages of full-spectrum CBD, including the balanced euphoria from THC combined with the anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving properties of CBD. 

Order our full-spectrum CBD edibles (such as our Buzz drops), and experience firsthand how cannabis compounds work synergistically to amplify each other’s effects.

THC drinks FAQ

Cannabis energy drinks typically contain a combination of caffeine and THC or CBD. The effects can vary depending on the individual's tolerance and the specific product. While caffeine provides an energy boost, THC may induce relaxation or mild euphoria, and CBD might offer a calming effect. It's essential to consume such products responsibly and be aware of the THC content to avoid unwanted effects.

To make a mocktail taste like alcohol, you can use ingredients that mimic the flavors found in alcoholic beverages. For example, use non-alcoholic alternatives such as bitters, flavored extracts, or alcohol-free spirits that imitate the taste of liquor. You can also add different types of fruit juices, syrups, and soda to create a complex and cocktail-like flavor profile.

While ginger beer is a key ingredient in a traditional Moscow mule, you can substitute it with ginger ale if you prefer a milder ginger flavor. However, be aware that this may alter the overall taste of the cocktail. Try different ginger-flavored beverages, like ginger kombucha or sparkling ginger water, to provide unique twists to the classic recipe.

To create a smoky effect in mocktails, you can use a smoking gun or a culinary torch to infuse the drink with a smoky aroma. Ingredients like smoked herbs or spices, such as smoked cinnamon sticks or smoked rosemary, can be placed in a glass before pouring the mocktail. Ignite the smoking gun or torch, direct the smoke into the glass, and cover it with a coaster. Allow the drink to infuse with the smoky scent before serving.

Moscow mules can be enjoyed as a treat, but like any cocktail, their healthiness depends on moderation. Traditional Moscow mules are relatively low in calories (around 150-200 calories) but can be high in sugar due to the sugar content of the ginger beer. Our orange Moscow mule with cannabis contains only 95 calories because it’s alcohol-free. 

Opting for sugar-free or light ginger beer, and using fresh, quality ingredients can make them a more balanced choice. Always remember to drink responsibly.

The Kentucky mule and Mexican mule are similar to the Moscow mule. The Kentucky mule replaces vodka with bourbon, offering a richer and warmer flavor. The Mexican mule swaps vodka for tequila, creating a zesty and bold twist on the classic cocktail. Both variations use ginger beer and lime juice as well.

You can experiment with all kinds of mules and replace alcohol with cannabis for a healthier and safer drink.

A Moscow mule is not limited to any specific gender. It is a classic cocktail enjoyed by people of all genders. The idea of gendered drinks is outdated, and everyone should feel free to savor a Moscow mule or any cocktail they prefer, regardless of gender.

Despite its name, the Moscow mule is not of Russian origin. It was created in the United States in the 1940s and popularized in Hollywood. The drink features vodka, ginger beer, and lime juice, but it is not a traditional Russian beverage. The name "Moscow" likely refers to the association of vodka with Russia.

We retained the original name of the Moscow mule cocktail, but our version is vodka-free (which breaks any ties with Russia). Feel free to call this delightful mocktail anything you like; it won’t affect the flavors and the mild buzzes it delivers.
