Understanding THC Drink Dosages And The Laws Around It

THC drink dosages and California laws

If you’re a consumer interested in trying THC-infused beverages in California, it’s important to understand the dosage regulations to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience:

  • Know Your Serving Size: A single serving of a cannabis drink can’t contain more than 10 milligrams (mg) of THC. This is a relatively low dose, but it can still produce significant effects, especially if you’re new to cannabis or have a low tolerance. Always start with a single serving and wait at least 60-180 minutes to gauge the effects before consuming more.
  • Read the Label: Always check the label carefully. It should clearly state the total THC content in the package, as well as the amount per serving. The label will also include important warning statements that you should read and heed.
  • Resealable Packaging: If you purchase a multi-serving beverage, it should come in a resealable package. This is required by law so that you can safely store any unused portions for later consumption. Always keep cannabis beverages (and all cannabis products) out of reach of children and pets.

Remember, everyone reacts to cannabis differently. A 10mg dose may be just right for some, while for others, it may be too much. It’s always best to start low and go slow. If you’re new to cannabis beverages, consider starting with half a serving (5mg) to see how it affects you. And always consume responsibly, never drive under the influence, and don’t mix with alcohol or other substances. Enjoy your cannabis beverage experience

California THC Infused Drink Legality

  • Adult Use: THC-infused drinks are legal for recreational purchase and consumption by adults aged 21 and older.
  • Medical Use: Patients with a valid medical marijuana recommendation can also purchase and consume THC-infused drinks.


  • Licensing: Manufacturers and retailers of THC-infused drinks must be licensed by the state’s Department of Cannabis Control (DCC).
  • Testing: All THC-infused drinks must undergo rigorous laboratory testing to ensure safety and accurate labeling of cannabinoid content.
  • Labeling: Products must have clear labeling indicating THC content, serving size, and other relevant information.
  • Packaging: Packaging must be child-resistant and tamper-evident.
  • Purchase Limits: There are limits on how much THC can be purchased at one time.

Additional Notes:

  • No Alcohol: THC-infused drinks cannot contain alcohol. This is explicitly prohibited under California law.
  • On-Site Consumption: Some licensed retailers may have designated areas for on-site consumption of THC-infused drinks.

In summary:

  • Edible cannabis products, including drinks, are limited to no more than 10mg THC per serving and 100mg THC per package.
  • An exception allows certain orally dissolving medical-only products to contain up to 500mg THC per package as long as servings are limited to 10mg.
  • Refrigerated drinks are allowed if they meet certain juice/beverage processing requirements.

Additional Considerations:

  • Multiple Servings: If a drink contains multiple servings, the THC content must be clearly indicated per serving on the label.
  • Consumer Awareness: It’s crucial for consumers to be aware of the THC content per serving to ensure responsible consumption.


A 12-ounce THC-infused drink containing 100 mg of THC would be considered a 10-serving beverage, with each serving containing 10 mg of THC.

It’s important to note that these are the legal limits set by California law, and exceeding them would be a violation of regulations.
