You can eat your edibles and drink them too! Although weed gummies have long dominated the edibles market, a new cannabis-derived product is surging in popularity: THC drinks.
From 2019 to 2022, sales of cannabis beverages increased by 40%, making beverages one of the fastest-growing segments of the cannabis market.
Grand View Research estimates that by 2025, the global cannabis beverage market will be worth $2.8 billion. This still represents only a small fraction of the total cannabis market; however, the impressive rate of growth represents a huge opportunity for expansion.
What’s all the buzz about? Why do people love drinking cannabis? Learn more about the benefits of THC drinks below.
What are THC edibles?
Edibles are cannabis products that you consume to gain the benefits of THC, the natural compound responsible for the psychoactive effects of cannabis. Being both convenient and discrete, edibles are one of the most popular ways to enjoy THC.
There are all kinds of edibles: gummies, lollipops, chocolates, brownies, cookies, cakes, potato chips, crackers, trail mix. You can even get cannabis-infused beef jerky, salsa, and pizza sauce.
There are numerous legal THC edibles available online. For a product to contain legal THC it must be hemp-derived and have no more than 0.3% Delta-9 THC. Despite this strict limit, the product can still contain a sizable and effective amount of Delta-9 THC, especially a weighty product like a cannabis beverage.
Seltzers and juices are the most popular THC drinks, but cannabis water, coffee, tea, and soda are also in demand.
Benefits of THC Drinks
THC drinks provide fast-acting effects that you’ll feel within 15 to 30 minutes, which gives you greater control over your psychoactive experience than if you eat gummies, which take longer to take effect.
If you’re sipping a THC drink, and feel like you’re coasting at an enjoyable level, you can stop drinking. Alternatively, if you’re not feeling much, you have the option to drink more to elevate your experience.
Because you can sip THC drinks all night long, they provide a more enduring experience, functioning as a social beverage. In fact, many people use THC drinks as an alternative to alcohol.
Benefits of THC Gummies
It’s undeniable that THC drinks have a ton of benefits, but so do THC gummies. For starters, gummies are more portable; they’re easier to travel with and to consume on the go.
Their psychoactive effects also last longer. While it takes 30 minutes to 2 hours to feel the effects of THC gummies, they last between 6 to 8 hours. This means you don’t have to take additional THC gummies to maintain a long high.
Because THC gummies have been around longer than THC drinks, more THC gummy options are available. You can buy both Delta-8 gummies and Delta-9 gummies online from countless companies. But be careful: not all of these companies offer high-quality products.
Are THC gummies or THC drinks better?
There’s no definitive answer to whether THC gummies or THC drinks are better. Both have their own unique benefits, so it really comes down to the experience you’re looking for.
THC gummies are great for unwinding at home while enjoying snacks and a movie marathon. THC drinks are perfect for socializing while you’re at a party with friends.
