Weed beverages such as THC teas are a favorite cannabis edible among many medical marijuana patients in Canada. Nothing beats a nice warm cup of tea that is boosted by a shot of THC. Cannabis teas are a great alternative method of cannabis consumption for non-smokers, or for times when smoking weed is not ideal. Consuming tea is a relative activity and combining it with marijuana only adds layers to the relaxation experienced.
MARIJUANA EDIBLES 101: Cannabis Beverages Canada
An Introduction to Cannabis Beverages
Cannabis infused beverages have been around for awhile, but it wasn’t since cannabis legalization in Canada that these beverages have been as readily available to the general public. Weed beverages such as THC teas have become a mainstay in many cannabis users’ lives due to the many therapeutic benefits.
Composition of Cannabis Drinks
Weed beverages often contain cannabidiol (CBD). These drinks have no psychoactive effects on you and are more likely to be beneficial in various ways. Some other types of cannabis drinks contain tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). These are very likely to get you high, unlike their non-psychoactive counterpart. The third category of cannabis drinks comprises THC and CBD. This type of drink balances out the effects of both THC and CBD.
These days, cannabis drink producers are including everything they can within the confines of reason and Canadian regulations. So, if you’re drinking cannabis soda, for example, you can expect to find a few soda ingredients there.
