What is a cucumber mint cannabis mocktail?

A cucumber mint cannabis mocktail is a delightful departure from your typical cucumber mint drink with alcohol. This cannabis-infused drink combines the crispness of cucumber, invigorating mint, and a hint of citrus. The cool cucumber provides a refreshing and hydrating base, while the mint adds a burst of herbal notes. A touch of citrus from fresh lime juice lends a zesty, tangy twist that perfectly balances the flavors.

It's the ideal choice for those seeking a unique beverage without alcohol. Instead of intoxication, it offers an uplifting experience. A classic cucumber mint cocktail typically contains gin or vodka. But we said no to those. Instead, we infuse this timeless sipper with low doses of cannabis.

Our low-dose cannabis infusion contains only 2 mg of Delta 9 THC per full dropper. These small amounts of cannabis produce mildly euphoric feelings without overwhelming your senses and gluing you to the couch. That’s not what we want from our cannabis cocktail.

Our THC beverages are mellow and have no side effects. Unlike booze, you won’t feel heavy—no next-day migraines, nausea, dehydration, or blackouts. Which is exactly what makes this minty cucumber mocktail such a revelation. 

Did we mention our liquid Buzz drops also contain cannabidiol (CBD)? Here’s everything you should know about the therapeutic nature of CBD

What are the ingredients of this cucumber mint drink?

This virgin cucumber mint cocktail is a keeper. You need only a few ingredients and even less time to treat your friends with a glass of cold THC-laced minty cucumber mocktail. 

Here’s what you need to make this mocktail:

  • 5–6 slices of cucumber
  • 8–10 fresh mint leaves
  • ¾ ounces simple syrup
  • 1 ounce lime juice
  • 1 dropper full Buzz drops 
  • Club soda
  • Ice 


  1. Muddle the fresh cucumber, mint leaves, and simple syrup in a cocktail shaker. 
  2. Use a muddler or the back of a spoon to gently crush and mix the ingredients. Muddle until the cucumber is slightly broken down.
  3. Add fresh lime juice. 
  4. Add a full dropper of Buzz drops. (Adjust the quantity based on how strong you want your drink to be.) 
  5. Fill the shaker with ice cubes. 
  6. Shake the mixture vigorously until it's well combined, and the ingredients are thoroughly chilled. 
  7. Double-strain the mocktail into a serving glass filled with fresh ice. 
  8. Top off your mocktail with club soda.
  9. Garnish with a slice of cucumber to enhance its presentation and reinforce the cucumber's flavor.

It doesn’t get easier than this. Sip slowly, savor the refreshing blends, and let our liquid THC take you to a state of blissful relaxation.

Because it contains the aromatic mint, this mocktail is often dubbed the “cucumber mojito.” If you want to treat yourself to the classic mojito flavors—without the booze, of course—check out our recipe for a cannabis-infused mojito drink.

Elevate your cucumber mint THC drink

This recipe is not set in stone. You’re most welcome to experiment with flavors and ingredients until you find the one that delights your palate the most. 

Here are some tips and tricks for the ultimate THC minty cucumber experience:

  1. Replace soda water with sparkling water to add effervescence and a delightful fizz to your mocktail. It enhances the refreshing quality of the drink. You can even use tonic water or anything else that fizzes.
  2. For extra chill, use a glass filled with ice cubes. It keeps your mocktail at the perfect sipping temperature and provides a satisfying cooling effect. If you’re not a fan of a filled glass with ice, make sure your soda water is really chilled.
  3. Enhance your mocktail with fresh orange juice. The citrusy notes will complement the mint and cucumber, creating a harmonious blend of flavors. Or…
  4. Add fresh lemon juice. A dash of lemon juice can add a different spectrum of that zesty, citrusy note.
  5. Garnish with a sprig of mint before serving. The aroma and additional minty flavor will make your mocktail visually appealing and refreshingly delicious.
  6. In fact, garnish with whatever the heck you like or have in the fridge. Get creative and make it your own.
  7. Tailor the level of sweetness to your liking. If you prefer a sweeter mocktail, add a bit more simple syrup. For a less sweet option, reduce the amount of syrup. Maple syrup and granulated sugar are great alternatives to simple syrup. Just make sure you stir or shake really well—unless you want to give your teeth a bit of a sandy treat. 
  8. To give your mocktail a slight spiciness, you can experiment with adding ginger ale or ginger beer. It provides a subtle kick to your drink.

The options are virtually limitless, so don't be afraid to get creative and find the perfect combination that delights your palate. 

Our cannabis mixers are great, but our THC gummies are also waiting to delight your palate. Many people microdose cannabis to relieve anxiety, because low-dose THC can soothe your system—unlike higher amounts which can cause the opposite effect.

Why are THC drinks better than alcohol?

Alcohol is one of the unhealthiest and riskiest ways to have fun. The reasons why you should stop with the booze and start with cannabis-infused mocktails are too many to name—but we’ll try. 

  1. Faster onset of effects. You can feel the effects of THC beverages within 20 minutes of consumption. Sure, booze can get you pleasantly tipsy in the same amount of time, but alcoholic beverages are nowhere near the efficacy, safety, or elegance of a homemade THC drink. 
  2. Longer-lasting effects. The effects of weed drinks can stick around for up to six hours for some people. While that is a bit shorter than gummies—the THC in gummies can linger for up to eight hours—it sure beats booze. Your body typically needs about one hour to metabolize a standard drink. This means that if you've had multiple drinks, it may take several hours for the alcohol to completely clear your system. By that time, you might be waking up to a hangover with unpleasant symptoms, whereas THC from weed drinks tends to wear off more smoothly, leaving you without the pounding headaches and other discomforts. 
  3. Mellow effects. Speaking of hangovers and unpleasant symptoms, the effects of THC drinks are much more manageable because of the lower, controlled dosing. Two milligrams of THC and nearly three milligrams of CBD in our liquid Buzz drops are strong enough to provide relief or relaxation but gentle enough to keep you functional and clear-headed. 

The stronger argument for replacing alcohol is that frequent and excessive alcohol intake often leads to alcoholism. Because of its therapeutic effects, microdosing cannabis may help alcoholism, alleviate withdrawal symptoms, and reduce cravings.

THC drinks FAQ

CBD drinks are completely safe when consumed responsibly. It’s important to choose products from reputable manufacturers that adhere to quality and safety standards—like nama CBD. Our THC and CBD drinks provide clear information about the content, sourcing, and third-party lab testing. This way we ensure you're getting a reliable product. 

If you have any underlying health conditions or are taking medications, consult with a healthcare professional before incorporating cannabis drinks into your routine.

Cannabidiol is a chemical compound found in the cannabis plant. It is not considered a drug in the traditional sense. While it is derived from the same plant family as marijuana, CBD is non-intoxicating and does not produce the psychoactive effects associated with marijuana use. 

Instead, CBD is a natural supplement. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved a CBD-based prescription drug called Epidiolex for the treatment of specific medical conditions, but most CBD products available on the market are considered dietary supplements.

Many of our edibles contain combinations of THC and CBD or CBD with other, minor cannabinoids (such as cannabinol, or CBN) that provide relaxation, relief, and mental clarity. The CBD content in our Buzz drops is pretty low—only 2.9 mg per full dropper—and pretty safe to consume. 

It is pretty safe to consume CBD every day in a controlled, responsible way. Small amounts of CBD can be part of your regular wellness routine and potentially promote relaxation, manage stress, or support overall well-being. 

However, if you’ve never consumed CBD before, pay attention to your body's response and always start with a low dose. Consult with a healthcare professional, especially if you have specific health concerns or are taking medications.

The traditional cucumber mint cocktail typically includes fresh cucumber slices, mint leaves, simple syrup (a mixture of sugar and water), lime juice, and a base spirit such as vodka or gin. This combination creates a refreshing and slightly sweet cocktail with a delightful blend of cucumber and mint flavors. 

However, if you have one too many of these booze-laced cocktails, you might wake up the next day with a throbbing headache and a serious case of regret. That’s the best part of consuming our low-dose cannabis drinks is no regrets. 

Alcohol carries so many health risks, especially if you consume it every day. Excessive or daily alcohol intake can lead to numerous health problems, including liver damage, addiction, increased risk of accidents, and negative effects on mental health. Moderation is key, but even daily consumption can lead to unpleasant side effects. If you have concerns about your alcohol consumption, seek guidance from a healthcare professional.

In mocktails, simple syrup is commonly used as a sweetening agent. Simple syrup is made by dissolving equal parts of granulated sugar and water, creating a clear, sweet liquid. It serves as an essential ingredient in mocktails, balancing the flavors and adding a touch of sweetness. 

However, there are many types of flavored syrups, such as mint or fruit-infused syrups, that can be used to add a unique twist to mocktail recipes. The choice of syrup depends on the desired flavor profile of the mocktail being prepared.

When it comes to ordering a fantastic mocktail, the world of non-alcoholic cannabis beverages offers a plethora of unique flavors. Whether you're abstaining from alcohol or just craving a refreshing, booze-free drink, THC-infused mocktails have you covered. 

Here are a few top mocktail choices for your next order.

  1. Cannabis-infused Pink lemonade: this mocktail offers the bright and refreshing taste of lemonade but with the added touch of our cannabis infusion. It's a unique option for those looking to enjoy the flavors of summer with an extra layer of complexity.
