All You Need to Know About Cannabis-Infused Beverages and Top-Producing Brands

One of the newest trends to hit the marijuana market is cannabis-infused drinks. Marijuana drinks have many of the same benefits as marijuana edibles. They are easy to consume and they are appealing to inexperienced or occasional users. They also don’t require any additional equipment such as vaporizers, and they don’t have to be burned or smoked. On the other hand, cannabis drinks are slow to take effect and dosing is often imprecise.
Marijuana drinks come in several different varieties, including wine. Federal law does not allow cannabis and alcohol to be sold in the same establishment, so marijuana-infused wine has all the alcohol removed. It’s still a tasty and relaxing treat, though.
Some of our favorite cannabis drinks are:
These organic herbal tea bags are infused with cannabis. Choices include Tranquili-Tea with chamomile and valerian, Sympa-Tea with turmeric and ginger, Sensuali-Tea with hibiscus and cardamom, and Positivi-Tea with mint. Kikoko also packages tea bags in gift boxes. Other products include botanical mints, tinctures, and honey shots.
Canna Cola – Coming Soon!
These cannabis-infused sodas are made with recognized, branded strains of marijuana. Options include Orange Kush, Sour Diesel, and CannaCola.

Here, ALT is an acronym for advanced liquid technology. You get a clear, flavorless cannabis-infused liquid that you can add to any beverage of your choice.

From a very familiar name, this seltzer is light with 25 calories, 4 grams of sugar, and 5 grams of THC.
This is a fizzy, citrusy sparkling water with both THC and CBD from sun-grown cannabis oil. The drink has a light taste and is calibrated to reduce the chances of a hangover. Most dispensaries in Ventura County seem to be doing pretty good at keeping these drinks in stock.
Yes, that’s the name. These marijuana-infused drinks come in handsome dark bottles in flavors such as Espresso Mocha, Sparkling Cranberry, Rainier Cherry, Pomegranate, and Spaoklin Lemon Ginger.
Artet Cannabis Apertif:
Distilled to resemble spirits (but without the alcohol), Artet is made with botanical extracts. It is ideal for mixing into a pre-dinner cocktail.
Uncle Arnie’s Iced Tea Lemonade:
Iced tea and lemonade are soft drinks, but with 100 milligrams of THC in each eight-ounce bottle, this drink is anything but soft. Uncle Arnie’s Iced Tea Lemonade is becoming a popular choice. Every day more and more local dispensaries are adding this flavorful and powerful infused drink to their menus.
