The Best THC And CBD Drinks For Sale in 2024

This blog post is a deep dive into one of the best THC-infused drinks in California for 2024, featuring a range of juicy flavors that are capturing the interest of cannabis users. While smoking cannabis remains the most popular method of consumption, the allure of sipping THC-infused beverages is growing each year.

We will explore the distinct effects and experiences offered by both smoking and drinking cannabis. Smoking delivers immediate effects as cannabinoids are rapidly absorbed through the lungs. In contrast, drinking cannabis provides a slower onset of effects, which can be more intense and longer-lasting due to the metabolism of THC by the liver. Join us as we delve into these differences, helping you understand how each method can uniquely enhance your cannabis experience.

Absorption and Onset of Effects

A single serving of a cannabis infused drink can’t contain more than 10 milligrams (mg) of THC legally in California. The starting THC dosage for an infused drink is 5 milligrams. 

Always start with a single serving and wait at least 60-180 minutes to gauge the effects before consuming more.

If you’re new to cannabis beverages, consider starting with half a serving (5mg) to see how it affects you.

Remember to always consume responsibly, never drive under the influence, and don’t mix with alcohol or other substances. Enjoy your cannabis beverage experience!

Control Over Dosage

Cannabis Consumption Methods: Dose Titration

Smoking Cannabis

Cannabis varies in potency, and when smoked, its effects are felt almost instantly. This immediacy allows users to gauge how much THC they’re consuming. However, newcomers to cannabis should be cautious, especially with high-potency THC products, as they might not yet understand their tolerance. For beginners, just one or two hits are often enough to achieve the desired effects. Overconsumption can easily occur if they continue to smoke beyond what is necessary, leading to an overwhelming experience. Therefore, it’s recommended that new users start with lower-potency cannabis and take it slow to avoid overindulgence.

Drinking THC

When consuming cannabis in beverage form, users benefit from precise dosage control, thanks to THC drinks that are rigorously tested for potency. The labels clearly indicate the exact dosage, and the packaging often includes a cap that allows for measured consumption. This helps in ensuring that users can easily manage and control their intake, even though the effects might take longer to manifest compared to other forms of cannabis consumption.

Social and Legal Aspects

In California, the consumption of cannabis, including edibles, is legally permitted under state law for both medical and recreational use. However, there are specific regulations about where you can legally consume these products:

  1. Private Property: The safest place to consume cannabis is within the privacy of a home or on private property. This includes residences where the owner permits cannabis use.
  2. Cannabis Businesses with Consumption Licenses: Some cannabis dispensaries and lounges have obtained licenses that allow on-site consumption. These establishments can provide a legal and social setting for consuming various forms of cannabis, including edibles.
  3. Events with Permits for Cannabis Consumption: Certain events may receive permits that allow the consumption of cannabis on the premises. These are typically cannabis-specific events where vendors can also sell their products.


  • Public Spaces: It is illegal to consume cannabis in any public space, including streets, parks, and businesses without specific licensing.
  • Vehicles: Both drivers and passengers are prohibited from consuming cannabis within the confines of a vehicle. This applies even if the vehicle is not in motion.
  • Federal Land: Since cannabis remains illegal under federal law, any federal land (like national parks and forests) falls under federal jurisdiction, and cannabis use there is illegal.

Local jurisdictions may have their own additional rules, so it’s always a good idea to be aware of the specific regulations in your area or any area you plan to visit in California.

Experience and Effects

The psychoactive effects can differ notably. The liver’s conversion of THC into 11-hydroxy-THC when ingested orally typically results in a more intense and longer-lasting high than the more fleeting and variable high that comes from smoking.

Scientific and Clinical Research

Research indicates that the health risks associated with smoking cannabis are not as severe as those associated with tobacco, but long-term smoking can still lead to respiratory issues. Meanwhile, the market for drinkable cannabis products is relatively new, and research into their long-term effects is still developing.

Overall, the choice between smoking and drinking cannabis often comes down to personal preference, desired effects, and health considerations. Each method offers different advantages and drawbacks, making them suitable for different situations and user needs.
