Over the last decade, marijuana-infused drinks have improved greatly in both consistency and flavor. As more states across the country legalize marijuana for recreational and/or medicinal use, the use of cannabis products such as marijuana edibles and marijuana-infused drinks grows.
The search for alternatives to alcohol and alcoholic beverages has also boosted the consumption of these drinks. An report by BDS Analytics has found that roughly 20% of marijuana consumers are now consuming marijuana beverages in legal markets for various reasons, whether it’s to have fun, feel peaceful or relax.
So, how are these beverages made?
CBD and THC are the two most popular cannabinoids; they are both found in the marijuana plant. These compounds aren’t easily mixed with water and are fat soluble. THC is alcohol soluble but cannot be combined with alcohol since it is illegal to combine marijuana and alcohol.
To create a wholly consistent product that contains the same dose of marijuana in each sip, cannabis firms use nano-emulsification. The process involves breaking down cannabis oil into minute particles that are mixed with an emulsifier, which helps the oil to dissolve in the water-based drink.
How do marijuana-infused beverages compare to edibles?
First, they afford some flexibility. These drinks can be consumed in different ways, depending on an individual’s preference. For instance, they can be added to a baking or cooking recipe, mixed with other beverages or just taken with ice.
They are also good for beginners. The quick uptake of cannabis-infused drinks decreases the chances of the user getting too high by consuming too much, which is better than trying an edible, as the dosing isn’t known or exact.
They are easily enjoyable. Sometimes an edible may result in a bad outcome, which may leave the user feeling groggy or sick in the hours that follow. However, you can enjoy your cannabis-infused drink without having to worry about a hangover, seeing as it is nonalcoholic and has no severe side-effects.
Beverages can be consumed socially. Unlike vaping or smoking a joint, you don’t need to excuse yourself in order to enjoy your marijuana-infused drink. With cannabis-infused beverages, you can carry on drinking while keeping your conversation going and interacting with people.
In addition, the beverages have a quicker uptake. Edibles such as cannabis chocolate, gummies and baked goods need to be digested for absorption to start, which means it takes about four hours for an individual to feel its effect. On the other hand, you will feel the herb’s effects about half an hour after you consume a cannabis-infused beverage.
The great strides made in infusion technology have allowed companies such as BevCanna Enterprises Inc. (CSE: BEV) (OTCQB: BVNNF) (FSE: 7BC) to offer an array of infused drinks that suit the needs of different consumer segments.
