The popularity of cannabis and cannabis products has increased significantly in the last few years as more states legalize the herb for various uses. This has also led to the introduction of new cannabis products into the market, including cannabis-infused beverages, which exist in different forms such as kombuchas, tonics, cocktails, juice-based drinks, flavored seltzers and sparkling waters. Consumers who haven’t tried beverages infused with cannabinoids such as THC and CBD are often not sure what dosage may work for them.
Most beverages that contain THC, which is a psychoactive cannabinoid, have varying dosages that can range between 2 mg and 100 mg. On the other hand, infused drinks that contain CBD, which is a nonpsychoactive cannabinoid, have dosages ranging between 15 and 50 mg.
If you would like to try infused drinks but aren’t sure if they are stronger than edibles, it is important to keep in mind that the potency over beverages depends not only on the dosage but also how an individual’s body processes the cannabinoids. Different individuals respond to varying doses differently, based on factors such as body chemistry.
Usually, it takes between 45 minutes to one and a half hours for the body to process an edible, after which the cannabinoid is absorbed into the bloodstream. On the other hand, cannabis-infused beverages only take between 8–15 minutes to take effect, which is why it is important to pay attention to your serving size, especially if you’re new to infused drinks and edibles.
How can you know the right dosage for you?
Individuals who are curious about marijuana and are new to using the substance should start with a beverage with a low dose, perhaps 2 to 4 mg of THC per about 8 ounces of fluid. Ensure that you also consume the drink slowly, which allow you to observe how your body reacts to the cannabinoids as well as how you feel and how long it takes for you to feel the drink’s effects.
If you’re an occasional cannabis consumer, drinks in the 20 mg range may suit your taste. You are also advised to take it slowly and observe how your body reacts to the beverage. Regular marijuana consumers who most likely have a high tolerance to the herb may consume a high-dose drink. Beverages that contain about 100 mg of THC may be ideal.
If you’re a regular consumer of cannabis but are new to high-dose beverages, you are advised to take it slowly and space out your doses. This will afford you the opportunity to observe how your body feels throughout the experience. This is especially vital for individuals taking infused drinks for health and wellness purposes.
