What are They?
Cannabis-infused beverages are a type of edible. Edibles are available in liquid beverage form, or in solid form such as chocolates and gummies. Cannabis beverages are available in a variety of types such as teas and teabags, sparkling water, non-alcoholic beer, dissolvable powder, and water-soluble drops. Each beverage contains THC, CBD, or a combination of both, with no more than 10mg of THC per unit. To review our selection check out our online menu.
How are they sold?
Drinks are sold as single units (sorry no 6 packs!) and most often packaged in glass bottles, plastic bottles, and aluminum cans. As with all cannabis products, you may only purchase and carry up to 30g of dried flower equivalency at one time, and each cannabis beverage has an equivalency listed on the label. Check with your Boondom Budtender to see how many beverages you are allotted on your order!
Pros and Cons
Infused beverages offer a great alternative for individuals that do not want to smoke or inhale their cannabis. As well as for those who want to try something new. Consuming a cannabis beverage is a better option for those concerned about the effects of smoking or just want to combine forms. Cannabis beverages come in a variety of flavours and some are very tasty. They are generally ready-made and there is a convenience of use.
The cannabinoids (such as THC and CBD) in cannabis beverages are absorbed through the digestive tract. So, the onset and duration of effects can start anywhere from 30 minutes to 4+ hours and last up to 12 hours. But keep in mind because some are absorbed through the mouth, the potency is much more than other edibles. So start low and go slow especially for novice users.
