What is a THC-infused drink?

THC drinks, or cannabis-infused beverages, are non-alcoholic drinks that you infuse with small amounts of cannabis. We’re talking about microdoses of Delta 9 THC and cannabidiol (CBD). This microdosing practice is a great way to reap the health benefits of cannabis without the negative side effects. 

THC-infused drinks are convenient, fun, delicious, and easy to make. More importantly, they offer a safer, healthier alternative to alcohol. These low-dose THC mixers provide light, uplifting effects, making them perfect for sipping at parties, unwinding after work, or relieving anxiety. No overwhelming side effects or painful alcohol-induced hangovers. 

You do know how detrimental to your health alcohol is, right?

If you’re new to the world of microdosing, our Relax Plus gummies are the perfect way to get started. Each gummy contains 25 mg of soothing CBD coupled with just 5 mg of THC for a mildly euphoric buzz and relief of stress and anxiety.

What is a virgin grapefruit sunset laced with THC?

A non-alcoholic THC grapefruit sunset is a refreshing drink with a bubbly sparkle. This tasty sipper combines the sweet-tart flavor of ruby red grapefruit juice with a dash of grenadine syrup for a pop of color and a splash of club soda for some fizz.

Our liquid THC drops take this mocktail from zero to mellow in minutes. The low-dose THC infusion provides a gentle buzz without the next-day misery of an alcohol hangover. 

We could go on and on about why we love this timeless refresher, but here’s the gist of it: 

  • The sweet grenadine and tart grapefruit flavors make a perfect flavor balance—no need for booze to round it out.
  • Bubbly club soda makes this mocktail light and lively on the palate.
  • Our microdose THC and CBD mixer is a much better choice than indulging yourself in one too many alcoholic drinks. Nothing beats a refreshing cocktail (sans alcohol) with a little buzz. 

Skip the hangover and enjoy the moment with our THC-laced grapefruit sunset drink. Feel free to experiment with flavors and discover new ways to wow your palate. 

If straight-up mocktails aren't your thing but you still crave the sweet tang of an exotic citrus drink, our Energy gummies are the perfect replacement. They contain only 2.5 milligrams of THC per gummy for a hint of euphoria and 5 milligrams of CBD for chilled vibes.

How to make this THC mocktail

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • ¾ ounces grenadine

Steps:

  1. Pour grenadine over ice in a highball glass. 
  2. Add a few drops of our liquid THC mixer.
  3. Squeeze fresh grapefruit juice and pour over the ice. 
  4. Stir to incorporate the ingredients. 
  5. Top up the rest of the glass with soda water. 
  6. Garnish with a grapefruit slice.
  7. Optional: throw all the ingredients in a cocktail shaker and shake well. 

See how we kept it simple and super delicious? This fast and easy technique allows the fresh-squeezed flavors to shine while enhancing the clash of colors. 

We know you’re going to love this refreshing mocktail, but if you’re in the mood for something creamier, how about a blood orange and cream THC drink

Our THC mocktail recipe book is filled with surprising flavors and bold colors. 

Extra tips for enjoyment

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. The options are virtually limitless, so don't be afraid to get creative.

To truly elevate this drink into a party showstopper, here are some fantastic ways to customize our grapefruit sunset buzztail:

  • Serve your mocktail in a fancy chilled coupe glass for a bold presentation. If you’re feeling fancy, extra fancy, use a martini glass. A tall, chilled Tom Collins glass will work too. The choice of glassware is all yours. 
  • Make this fun cocktail fashionable by rimming the glass. A sugar or salt rim is a nice touch and it will definitely wow your guests.
  • Add freshly squeezed lime or lemon juice for some extra zing.
  • Float a few drops of blood orange soda or juice for a gradient effect.
  • Muddle fresh mint leaves or rosemary sprigs for a more herbaceous note.
  • Instead of club soda, you could use sparkling water or tonic water. You need the bubbles, so choose your favorite type. 
  • If grenadine isn’t sweet enough for you, upscale this classic cocktail with a dash of simple syrup or honey. Their sweetness and grapefruit’s tartness are a match made in heaven.
  • Freshly squeezed grapefruit juice can be slightly more bitter. To tone down the bitterness of your mocktail, mix grapefruit juice with orange or blood orange juice. 
  • Play around with different fruit garnishes. Grapefruit slices are the obvious choice, but nothing’s stopping you from topping your drink with tiny watermelon wedges, orange slices, grapefruit peel, blood orange slices, or any other type of fresh fruit.

Our cannabis mixers are great, but our THC gummies are also waiting to delight your palate and melt away stress. Pop one of our melon-infused Bliss gummies for the perfect bite-sized treat to de-stress.

Product QUIZ

Why should I replace alcohol with microdosed cannabis drinks?

Alcohol is one of the unhealthiest and riskiest ways to have fun. There are many reasons why you should quit drinking and start sipping on our cannabis-infused mocktails. 

  1. You can feel the effects of weed drinks after 20 minutes of initial consumption. Booze might get you pleasantly tipsy in the same amount of time (or even quicker than that), but your regular boozy grapefruit sunset is nowhere near as efficient, safe, or mellow as a homemade THC drink. 
  2. The effects of THC drinks can last up to six hours, which is longer than an alcohol buzz. THC provides more enjoyment and relaxation without headaches, nausea, and other hangover miseries. Get more bang for your buck!
  3. Speaking of hangovers, alcohol typically takes longer to be metabolized by the liver, which leads to unpleasant symptoms such as headaches, nausea, dizziness, and fatigue. THC wears off a lot smoother than alcohol, without the negative side effects.
  4. The effects of microdosed 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. 
  5. One of the strongest arguments for replacing alcohol is that frequent and excessive alcohol intake often leads to alcoholism. Because of its therapeutic effects, microdosing cannabis may help with alcoholism, alleviate withdrawal symptoms, and reduce cravings.

If you want to avoid the harmful consequences of alcohol, learn how to infuse your drinks with THC.

I've been looking to cut alcohol out of my life. It's just not fun anymore: headaches; empty calories; not remembering things... These drops are perfect for a li'l buzz and relaxation instead of indulging in alcohol.

THC drinks FAQ

To give a refreshing drink true cocktail flavor without the booze, you can use tart citrus juices such as fresh lemon, lime, or grapefruit. Blend in sweet components like agave nectar, cinnamon hibiscus syrup, or triple sec to balance the acidity. For authentic effervescence, top your mocktail with bubbly club soda, tonic water, or lemon-lime soda to mimic the carbonation sensation of alcohol. 

Finally, to generate that mellow buzz without a hangover, add our THC drops. They make your cocktail taste even better and rid you of pesky post-drinking headaches nausea, or fatigue.

The hands-down most universally consumed non-alcoholic beverage in the world would have to be plain or sparkling water. Served chilled over ice with lemon or lime wedges, slices of orange or grapefruit, or fresh mint sprigs, simple hydrating H2O quenches thirst like no other. 

Another popular option is coconut water, as it provides natural electrolytes. Fruit juices from oranges, pomegranates, passionfruit, and more deliver sweet flavors and nutrients without fermentation or distilling. Not to mention the refreshing lack of hangovers. 

Mix yourself one of our craft mocktails, like the classic booze-free Paloma or a fragrant blueberry thyme drink with cannabis and forget about dehydration or the other side effects of alcohol.

The options for delicious drinks without alcohol range from juices to mocktails and everything in between. Make lemonade by combining fresh lemon juice with agave syrup, soda, and muddled mint leaves for an anytime thirst quencher. Blend coconut water, ice, and pineapple juice for an easy tropical smoothie. Or create a custom cocktail recipe like our cannabis grapefruit sunset with citrus, sweet liqueur, soda, and THC drops. 

The possibilities are endless for crafting flavorful, booze-free beverages. Here are some of nama’s delicious mocktail options for your next get-together.

  1. Cannabis-infused Pink lemonade. This mocktail offers the bright and refreshing taste of lemonade 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.
  2. Alcohol-free pumpkin cream THC drink. For a taste of fall, this mocktail offers the creamy and spiced flavor of pumpkin, with the added twist of our Buzz drops infusion
  3. Cucumber mint mocktail with THC. When you combine the cool and refreshing essence of cucumber with the invigorating flavor of mint, you get a rejuvenating alcohol-free choice. Add a splash of THC and CBD for the cherry on top.

For a beverage to qualify as “virgin” it must contain zero ethanol, alcohol, or spirits of any proof. However, mocktails and other booze-free drinks can mimic the flavors, aromas, presentation, and mouthfeel of true cocktails using components like citrus juices, syrups, bitters, and herbs. What classifies them as virgin is the 0% alcohol content, allowing enjoyment without intoxication. Our THC sunset delivers a gentle buzz by using cannabis instead of alcohol.

When it comes to citrusy cocktail ingredients, the options are wide-ranging. They depend on your personal preference and the type of drink you’re making. While lemon, lime, and grapefruit cover most cocktail bases, here are some other citrus fruits and juices you can try:

  • Lemons and lemon juice. The sharp, tart juice and zest of lemons add vibrant flavor to everything from fizzes to sours. The acidity of fresh lemon juice perfectly balances sweet ingredients.
  • Limes. Like lemons, lime juice imparts tartness but with an exotic, tropical flair. Fresh lime juice is essential for margaritas, mojitos, and caipirinhas.
  • Grapefruits. Fresh squeezed grapefruit juice provides a sweet-tartness while lending gorgeous color and friendly bitterness to cocktails.
  • Oranges. Fresh orange juice is a brunch classic for mimosas and shines in alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages with its gentle sweetness.
  • Pomelos. This funky citrus offers mild tartness with lots of fruit depth that pairs nicely with herbs and spices.
  • Blood oranges. Vibrant red juice provides an additional aesthetic aspect and gives a nice balance of sweet-tart.

The primary categories of booze-free drinks are:

  1. Fruit or vegetable juices extract natural sweet flavors and nutrition. Orange, grapefruit, pomegranate, pineapple, cranberry, or tomato juices deliver vitamins and quench thirst sans alcohol.
  2. Stimulant beverages provide a lift without liquor. Coffees, teas, yerba mates, matcha drinks, and cocoa contain caffeine for energy but no ethanol for buzzed impairment. 
  3. Carbonated and sparkling waters offer lively sensory bubbles instead of alcoholic proof. These range from fruity sodas like lemon limes to spicy ginger beers and everything in between from root beers to tonics. They can be plain or flavored.

Our THC and CBD-infused Buzz drops turn fruit juices, teas, and mocktails into relaxing, inebriation-free elixirs. They provide the same social buzz and unwinding vibes as wine or cocktails, without the nasty next-day hangovers. 

Try our cannabis-infused mojito or Bloody Mary with a buzzy twist.

The healthiest way to sweeten refreshments is using natural options with high nutritional value. For alternatives lower in refined sugars, freshly squeezed fruit juices add vitamin-rich sweetness along with zesty citrus flavors. Tart lemon, lime, grapefruit, and orange juices strike tasty sweet-tart balances in fruity drinks when combined with herbs such as fresh rosemary or mint.

Gentle sweetness also comes from spices like cinnamon and vanilla or floral elderflower. Agave nectar makes an all-natural sugar substitute as well. When craving sweetness in your glass, look to nourishing rather than nutrient-void sources. 

“Rimming a glass” refers to decoratively coating the outer edge of a cup or glass with edible crystals or sugars to add sweet-salty contrast and crunch. To rim, simply wet the glass rim then dip it into the desired coating like colored decorating sugars, sea salt flakes, or zesty citrus powders that adhere.

This edible ornamentation adds flair to cocktails, spritzers, and mocktails alike. Rimming also contrasts flavors in visually pleasing ways. The options for customization are only limited by your creativity and pantry ingredients.

Creative garnishes add special ornamental touches of texture, aroma, flavor, and visual appeal to cocktails and mocktails. For fruit-forward drinks, slices of orange, wheels of lemon, limes, or vibrant red grapefruit twists make bright finishing touches. Fresh herbs like mint sprigs, celery stalks, lavender, or rosemary infuse fragrance and hints of herbs or flowers.

For special occasions, anything colorful or festive accentuates your drink, from berries to edible flowers. Dehydrated citrus wheels also make pretty prismatic adornments. Raid your kitchen and embellish drinks with all sorts of fun edibles.
