The cannabis market has many new beverage options to choose from, and you’ll find some of your favourite soda options, sparkling waters, teas and even Kombucha.
The legal limit for cannabis is 10mg per can and you can find many dosing options on the market. The great thing about cannabis beverages is they’re fast-acting. That means you’ll feel the onset after around 15 minutes and the duration is around an hour, very similar to smoking cannabis.
One of the offerings on the cannabis market you can get excited about is a selection of wine spritzers and beers (without the alcohol). You can enjoy the familiar taste of a beer but with a different kind of a feel than what you’re used to with alcohol.
Indie Pals and Haus Mates by Bedfellows – Indie Pals by Bedfellows has a very unique flavour; it’s similar to a beer but fruity. If you’re not a fan of beer (like me) you may enjoy the unusual taste of Indie Pals, it tastes like hops, barley and peaches. This beverage has 10mg of THC and 2mg of CBD.
The other offering by Bedfellows is Haus Mates. This one is tastes like your standard light beer with a malt taste and fruity finish. This one has 7.5mg of THC and 2.5mg of CBD.
Mollo 2.5 and 5 – Mollo also offers a similar light beer taste as Haus Mates in two different doses 2.5mg of THC and CBD or 5mg of THC and CBD. You can also find a Mollo 5 with lime and 5mg of THC and CBD.
Cannabis Wine Grape Seltzers
There are a few tasty wine grape seltzers on the market for those of you that like the taste of wine. (I’m really hoping someone makes a cannabis champagne!)
Regal Pink Grape Sparkler and White Grape Sparkler by (V)IA – Regal Pink Grape Sparkler uses dry grapes from European vineyards. The Pink Grapy Sparkler has notes of grapefruit and pomegranate. It tastes like a wine seltzer without the alcohol as does their other offering the White Grape Sparkler with notes of muscat, peach and lemon. Both have 10mg of THC.
Dry Grapefruit by Little Victory – Another beverage on the market that uses wine grapes is Dry Grapefruit by Little Victory. This product has a similar taste to a wine sparkler and it’s not very sweet, this would make a great mocktail in the summer time. This is a low dose option with 2.5mg of THC and CBD.
There’s a little something for everyone with cannabis beverages and it’s definitely worth sampling different products to experience their fast-acting buzz.
