If you're curious about how THC beverages work, you're not alone. THC beverages are a relatively new and innovative way to consume cannabis, and understanding how they work can help you make informed decisions about your consumption.
THC beverages are made by infusing non-alcoholic drinks with THC, the main psychoactive compound found in cannabis plants. The cannabis plant may be hemp or marijuana, depending on the laws in your state. THC is extracted from the plant’s flower and then added to the beverage. This is not as simple as it may sound.
Standard THC is a thick oil at room temperature (think cold maple syrup) and does not mix well with water. If the THC falls out of solution, it is likely to be bonded to the can liner. Conscious consumers should ask about the stability of the THC in the beverage. For example, the THC in Floral’s THC drinks have a shelf stability of two years!
When you consume the beverage, the THC is absorbed into your bloodstream through various parts of your digestive system, and the onset can take anywhere from 5 to 30 minutes to kick-in. Most of our consumers report a stabilized effect within 45 minutes. The effects of THC beverages can vary depending on the dosage, the type of beverage, and your individual tolerance to THC. However, they generally provide a more controlled and precise dose than other methods of cannabis consumption, such as smoking or edibles. So, if you're looking for a social and convenient way to consume cannabis, THC beverages may be the right choice for you.
