What Are THC-Infused Drinks?

THC-infused drinks are beverages that contain tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which is the main psychoactive compound found in cannabis.

These drinks are designed to provide a cannabis-infused experience in a liquid form. Unlike other edibles that can take up to two hours to take full effect, THC-infused beverages may offer full effects in as little as 15 minutes of consumption — leading to a more real-time, and responsible, consumption experience.

THC-infused drinks come in various forms, including:

  • Teas
  • Coffees
  • Juices
  • Seltzers
  • Soda
  • Energy drinks
  • Sparkling water
  • Mocktails

They are typically produced by infusing the beverage with THC extract or by incorporating cannabis-infused oils or tinctures into the drink. The THC content can vary, and different products may have different potencies.

Do THC-Infused Drinks Get You High?

Yes, THC-infused drinks will get you high. Similar to gummies, sweet treats, and other food items, THC-infused drinks are a form of edibles. They’re often described as having a similar effect as alcoholic beverages, leaving the drinker with a euphoric feeling.

It’s important to note that THC-infused drinks can have varying potencies, so it’s crucial to read the product labels and follow the recommended dosage.

FAQs Regarding THC-Infused Drinks

THC-infused drinks work by incorporating THC — the psychoactive compound found in cannabis — into a liquid form that can be consumed orally.

The process involves infusing the beverage with:

  • THC extract
  • Cannabis-infused oils; or
  • Tinctures

The Science Behind Drinking THC

Nanoemulsion refers to the process of breaking down cannabinoids, like THC, into extremely small droplets and dispersing them evenly throughout the beverage. This technology enhances the solubility and bioavailability of THC in water-based solutions, allowing for better absorption and more consistent effects.

The small droplet size of the THC particles ensures that they remain suspended in the liquid without separating, resulting in a visually appealing (and shelf-stable) product.

Nanoemulsion technology also facilitates faster onset times for THC effects compared to traditional edible products. The smaller particle size increases the surface area of THC, enabling quicker absorption into the bloodstream when consumed orally. This can lead to more rapid onset and more predictable dosing.

The effects of THC-infused drinks will vary depending on the dosage consumed.

At lower doses, users may experience:

  • Mild relaxation
  • Mood elevation; or
  • A subtle sense of euphoria.

These effects can enhance socialization and creativity while promoting a sense of well-being.

As the dosage increases, the psychoactive effects become more pronounced.

Finding the right dosage is crucial to achieving the desired effects while minimizing any unwanted or uncomfortable experiences.

Before beginning consumption, check the packaging or label of the THC-infused beverage for information about the THC concentration. This can help you estimate the potency of the drink and guide your dosage decisions.

Some THC beverages contain multiple servings per can or bottle, while others are single servings, which is why it’s essential to check the recommended servings per container before drinking.

The dosage of Keef Brands beverages varies depending on the state, but they range from 10 mg to 100 mg of THC. Even better, all of Keef’s THC-infused beverages are homogeneous, meaning the THC molecules are dispersed evenly throughout the can.

Let’s say you get a 10mg can of Keef Classic Soda, but only want 5 mg. With a Keef Beverage, you can drink half, reseal it, and put it in the fridge (for up to two weeks) to enjoy later!

On average, Keef drinks typically take ~15 minutes to kick in. How quickly you’ll feel the high will depend on variants like:

  • Your metabolism
  • The dosage of cannabis in the drink
  • Your tolerance to cannabis
  • How recently you’ve eaten

Yes, THC-infused drinks can affect you differently than traditional edibles or smoking cannabis due to differences in:

  • Onset time
  • Duration of effects; and
  • The way THC is processed in the body.

Smoking will generally be the quickest way to feel the effects of cannabis, but concurrently, a smoking high will also be the first to fade.

Drinking a THC-infused beverage may take longer to kick in (remember, around 15 minutes for Keef Brand drinks) since it needs to be digested, but the effects will generally last much longer.

THC-infused beverages also generally have a more predictable onset time and duration of effects compared to edibles, making it easier for users to gauge their experience.

Aside from THC-infused beverages’ relaxing qualities, they’re a great way for all cannabis users to get their desired high at a more controlled, regulated pace.

The highs can differ, of course, depending on dosages and THC-infused beverages typically offer a quicker high than other forms of cannabis consumption.
