The Best CBD Drinks? None. Here’s why.
What’s Better Than The Best CBD Drink?
Unless you’ve been living under a rock (sounds like a vibe ngl), you’ve probably noticed CBD drinks exploding in popularity over the last few years. There are now dozens – if not hundreds – of options to choose from, each with its own list of ingredients and purported effects. This includes brands like Recess, Levia, Wynk, Artet, and many more. So if you’re feeling confused about how to choose the best CBD drink, you’re not the only one.
From this growing list of drink options, one category has generated more buzz than all the others: drinks infused with both CBD and THC, like Cann Social Tonics. Both research scientists and consumers report that these drinks have more noteworthy effects and benefits than drinks that contain CBD alone.
But what are these effects, what causes them, and what brands are people gravitating towards? Keep reading to find out!
THC and CBD Sitting in a Tree
What makes drinks with THC and CBD better than those that contain only CBD? Three words: The Entourage Effect. This term describes the ways that the various compounds found in cannabis interact and work together to enhance their effects.
You’ve probably heard the saying, the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. It’s just like that.
The science behind the Entourage Effect is not yet fully understood, but researchers believe that it’s related to how these compounds affect the body’s endocannabinoid system. This is where the receptors are located that respond to cannabinoids like THC and CBD.
In other words, cannabinoids like THC and CBD are able to more effectively interact with our body when they’re present together. For example, one study found that full-spectrum cannabis extract was more effective at reducing pain and improving sleep than CBD isolate alone (2011 Russo).
Tl;dr: Drinking a CBD-only drink often results in little-to-no perceptible effects, while drinks that contain both THC and CBD have effects you can actually feel. And though more research is needed, the science so far seems to agree.
What Are The Effects Of THC + CBD Drinks?
It can be difficult to pinpoint the precise effects of drinks containing THC and CBD, as they can vary depending on the products’ exact formulation and the individual consumers’ preferences and tolerance.
Generally speaking, some of the effects most commonly associated with CBD are feelings of calmness and focus. For THC, people often report feelings of euphoria, relaxation, and elevated sensory perception (such as a deeper enjoyment of art, music, and food, for example). When consumed together, these potential effects may be heightened. Thanks, Entourage Effect!
The key to enjoying THC + CBD drinks is to start small and work your way up until you find the ideal dose for yourself. AKA one of the reasons Cann Social Tonics are such a great choice. The microdose of cannabis in Cann (2mg THC + 4mg CBD) is never too strong or overpowering, which allows you to start with one, and have another (or 2, or 3…) to build up to your perfect buzz.
Since it’s a drink not an edible, Cann’s effects are felt fast and taper off predictably. And unlike alcohol, there are no next-day hangovers or regrets.
The Best CBD Drinks With THC Happen To Be The Most Delicious
Although the microdose of THC and CBD in Cann is responsible for its uplifting social buzz, it took more than that to become the #1 THC-infused drink in the US. Cann doesn’t just feel good. It tastes amazing, too. Cann’s award-winning flavors come from top-shelf, all-natural ingredients, never-from-concentrate fruit juice, with no artificial sweeteners or preservatives.
Plus, Cann is available in a variety of formats, including the original 8oz Cann and 12oz Hi Boys (with 5mg of THC). Looking for the best CBD drink mix? Check out Cann Roadies – pocketable liquid packets that make it convenient to bring the perfect microdose of THC + CBD on your next adventure.
