3 Cannabis Drink Recipes to Quench Your Thirst

Grace Hawkins

Edibles are now legal in Canada, and many people are embracing cannabis consumption. Entrepreneurs have realized that the industry is lucrative, and are exploring different cannabis drinks to pair with food. 

Although there are many cannabis users, some don’t like eating an entire cannabis meal. For this reason, infusing weed in drinks is becoming one of the sought after methods of consuming cannabis.

Just like infusing weed in food requires the use of a correct ratio of THC and CBD, it’s important to understand and use the recommended amounts. Examples of the most common infused elements for drinks are canna-milk, tinctures, infused syrups, dissolvable powder, and infused honey.

The cannabis plant contains two main elements; CBD and THC. THC is the primary psychoactive element, while CBD doesn’t make you high. Anecdotal reports indicate cannabis can help one to relax, improve sleep quality, reduce pain and inflammation, and improve appetite.

With edibles legalization, Canada has opened the door to new ways of legally consuming cannabis, including ingestion and drinking.
