If you are looking for the psychoactive effects of your favorite herb, cannabis-infused drinks have been the latest trend in the marijuana industry to give you that unique high in 2019.

Where can I get my hands on some marijuana-infused drinks?

Depending on where you live and the laws governing your area, marijuana-infused drinks and wine may be sold at a place near you. For instance, people who live in Washington or Colorado have access to some drinks down the street. However, even if you are located in a community with legal marijuana available, access to the new cannabis-infused beverages may vary.




What is in cannabis drinks?

You can infuse drinks with CBD (cannabidiol), THC, or both. Because cannabis drinks have a psychoactive ingredient, it cannot be mixed with alcohol.



What do cannabis drinks taste like?

What cannabis drinks taste like also depends on the base of the drink. Not all weed-infused beverages will have a distinct weed taste, either. Some weed-infused drinks have a non-alcoholic beer taste similar to O’Doul’s. Cannabis can be infused with fruity drinks, carbonated kombucha teas, or coffee as well.




Marijuana and Wine

What sounds like a more amazing combination for a relaxing night in than weed and wine? Nothing can unwind you better after a long week than this magical pairing and we’ll tell you why. Pairing wine with weed has actually been around for many years, tracing back centuries ago with the involvement in religious and meditative practices. In modern times, weed and wine are still being used to add a nice complimenting touch to your high. You can even find weed and wine tours available in California that allows you the opportunity to explore more in depth of both mood enhancers.

 

To make cannabis-infused wine, it requires an infusion process similar to making tea. You need to decarb the molecules that activate the THC in marijuana by applying heat, which is then slowly seeped in the wine.




Canna Cola

Canna Cola has marketed itself as the first national brand for medical marijuana beverages. Canna Cola is a cannabis-infused soda drink that began as a THC-soda for medical marijuana use. Typical flavors for this drink includes interesting names like Orange Kush, Grape Ape, Doc Weed, Sour Diesel, and Classic Canna Cola (similar to Coca Cola). If you are in the mood for a nice refreshing carbonated drink infused with THC, give Canna Cola a try.




Marijuana and Coffee

If you have a Keurig sitting in your kitchen, you can use these cannabis-infused coffee pods to add an extra kick to your morning coffee too!
