As cannabis is legalized for recreational use in more states across the country, the popularity of cannabis products is increasing, especially cannabis drinks.
What are cannabis drinks?
These are beverages that have cannabis infused into them. Cannabis drinks and hemp-infused beverages don’t always contain alcohol, seeing as most are marketed as alternatives to alcohol. Some do contain cannabinoids such as CBN, CBG and CBD, while others contain THC, which is a psychoactive ingredient.
There is an option for both CBD and THC-infused beverages in some jurisdictions.
So, what’s the difference between CBD drinks and hemp drinks?
Cannabis sativa is an umbrella term used to refer to both marijuana and hemp plants. So when we talk about the cannabis industry, we’re referring to more than just weed. Cannabinoids such as hemp oil, Delta-8 and CBD are also included when we refer to this particular industry.
It should be noted that there are different markets within this industry. Additionally, most CBD- and THC-infused drinks aren’t classified as edibles.
The hemp market is involved in the sale of all products derived from hemp. The difference between CBD and hemp is mainly found in how the product is sourced. Hemp plants produce a lot of cannabinoids, including CBD. Hemp products are made with or from hemp oil. These products are usually sourced from the plant’s seeds while CBD products are sourced from the plant’s leaves and stem. This is why CBD products don’t contain hemp oil.
With regard to drinks, hemp beverages are infused with broad-spectrum hemp oil extracted from the hemp plant. These beverages contain small CBD amounts but high concentrations of terpenes and other cannabinoids.
Research has found that hemp soothes general inflammation, promotes heart health, lowers blood pressure and has a positive impact on mood.
On the other hand, CBD drinks are infused with CBD isolate, which means they lack THC. This explains why CBD-infused drinks are calming and relaxing. Although research is limited, CBD has demonstrated strong potential for effectively managing chronic pain, insomnia and anxiety.
What about THC drinks?
THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol, is the chemical responsible for most of the cannabis plant’s psychological effects. This means that THC beverages are infused with the cannabis plant’s main psychoactive compound. These beverages are better enjoyed when sipped on slowly rather than consumed quickly.
Depending on the potency of the THC drink, users may experience a sense of relief and euphoria or get wasted, especially if they drink too much of it, too fast.
