The cannabis industry has dived headfirst into the drink market and has made quite a splash. Advances in cannabis science have introduced fast-acting options that no longer taste like weed. Keep scrolling to learn more about the breakthrough that led to cannabis drink revolution and the best cannabis beverages you must try as recommended by our well-versed budtenders. So, kick back in the cut, open one up, and let’s learn about some weed stuff.  

The Breakthrough 

Drinking has always been considered more socially acceptable than smoking, so for a long time, THC consumers were the bud of the joke when they had to leave the group and consume their THC elsewhere. It was a buzzkill. Trust us! One thing that cannot be doubted is a cannaconsumer will find a solution to almost any problem. This led to the invention of water-soluble THC. Water soluble THC gave consumers a quicker more reliable onset time for drinks but more importantly, it gave us THC infused drinks that for the first time didn’t taste like chewing a stem. With that being sad, let’s get to what you’ve all been waiting for.
