What To Know About Cannabis Drinks Before Trying Them

Cannabis Drinks from The Farmhouse Weed Dispensary in Burlington Ontario

Cannabis-infused beverages, also known as cannabis-infused drinks or marijuana drinks, are beverages that have been infused with cannabis or its derivatives, such as cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). These drinks are becoming increasingly popular as an alternative form of cannabis consumption, as they offer a more discreet and convenient way to consume cannabis than smoking or vaping.

What Do Cannabis-Infused Drinks Taste Like?

Cannabis drinks come in a wide variety of flavours, including tea, soda, juice, lemon and grapefruit, sparkling and still water, lemonade, and even flavour shots. They vary in taste based on their ingredients. Generally speaking, they have an earthy, herbal flavor and can be slightly sweet or slightly bitter. Some drinks have a citrusy flavor, while others are minty or spiced.

What Are Some of the Common Cannabis-Infused Drinks?

Cannabis-infused beverages come in a wide variety of flavours and forms, from soda, tea, and energy drinks to beer or wine-flavoured drinks, and even popular cocktails. These drinks can be made with either full-spectrum cannabis, which contains THC and other cannabinoids, or CBD-only cannabis, which does not contain THC. Depending on the type of cannabis used, the effects of the drink can range from relaxation and relief to increased energy and euphoria.

Why Do People Drink Cannabis-Infused Beverages?

Cannabis-infused beverages have become increasingly popular in recent years, not only for their recreational use but also for their other potential benefits. People drink cannabis-infused beverages for a variety of reasons, ranging from relaxation and enjoyment to many other needs.

Another reason people drink cannabis-infused beverages is for recreational use. Cannabis-infused beverages can provide a milder, more enjoyable experience than smoking cannabis. The effects of beverages infused with cannabis tend to be more subtle and gradual, making it easier to control the intensity of the effects. Furthermore, cannabis-infused beverages can offer an enjoyable alternative to drinking alcohol, as they can provide a pleasant, relaxed feeling without the risks associated with alcohol consumption.

Finally, cannabis-infused beverages may offer a convenient way to consume cannabis. Unlike cannabis edibles, which require preparation, cannabis-infused beverages can be purchased pre-made and ready to enjoy. This makes them an ideal option for those looking for an easy way to consume cannabis.

How Do I Pick the Right Cannabis-Infused Drink?

All cannabis-infused beverages that are approved by the Ontario Cannabis Store have a maximum of 10mg of THC. Customers can pick drinks that have specific ratios of THC and CBD and different types of cannabis (Sativa, Indica or hybrid) in order to find the experience they are looking for. Additionally, you can pick a beverage based on the flavour that you like. Join us in-store at The Farmhouse so a budtender can explore the menu and guide you through the process of buying a beverage that suits you.


Overall, people drink cannabis-infused beverages for a variety of reasons, from relief needs to recreational use. Whether it’s for relieving benefits or recreational enjoyment, cannabis-infused beverages can provide a convenient and enjoyable way to experience the effects of cannabis.
