When it comes to the exciting developments in the field of cannabis product development, American consumers enjoy the widest array of cannabis infused products in the world. While traditional marijuana edibles were always eaten, the American industry has helped successfully launch several lines of cannabis-infused drinks you should try immediately.
As more legal marijuana markets start to develop, industry leaders like Dixie Brands, Inc. and BrewBudz, Inc. have jumped on the innovation train to offer cannabis consumers discreet, fully integrable dosing alternatives to smoking flower or consuming a brownie.
Opting for cannabis-infused drinks over marijuana edibles is a good idea for inexperienced users looking to try cannabis for the first time. Because cannabis-infused drinks deliver THC sublingually (through the membranes in your mouth), they’re fast acting and have a shorter lifespan than traditional cannabis edibles.
Gastrointestinal absorption won’t take effect for up to two hours and the effects last for 4-8 hours. However, sublingual absorption is felt within 30 minutes and it lasts half as long.
Combined, the shorter lifespan and faster digestion of cannabis drinks help recreational marijuana consumers and medical patients avoid accidentally overeating. Even better, those who drink their cannabis also avoid the negative side effects of smoking.
Coffee lovers, rejoice! After a year of development, we’re finally seeing the launch of BrewBudz, a premium line of cannabis infused coffees, teas, and hot beverages delivered in completely compostable brew pod.
As a cannabis lifestyle product, Brewbudz innovators sought to give cannabis consumers and medical patients a discreet means of medicating. Not only is ingesting a hot beverage healthier than smoking flower, but it is also more appropriate in certain settings. As a lifestyle product, BrewBudz has successfully integrated the needs and the wants of cannabis and coffee consumers alike.
Each Brewbudz pod includes 10 mg of THC for recreational users and between 25 to 50 mg of CBD for medical users. The company uses a color-coded labeling system on top of the pod to indicate dosage. Like other cannabis product innovators, BrewBudz has taken into account the synergistic potential of their products by linking caffeinated teas and coffees with sativa-dominant strains while indica-dominant strains are incorporated to chamomile and nighttime teas.
When Dixie Elixirs launched its flagship line of THC and CBD infused medicated beverages, the impact on the market was profound. Initially taking the market by storm with a line of 10 medicated marijuana drinks, Dixie’s offerings have always been formulated with holistic wellness in mind.
Although Dixie Brands, Inc. has changed its offerings to include more than 30 different kinds of products, it has also maintained a dominant market presence while also proving flexible enough to meet the regulations of seven different state markets in which their products are manufactured and sold.
In May of 2016, Las Vegas ReLeaf and Silver State Wellness helped launch Dixie Products in Nevada, just before voters passed Question Two. As one of the most trusted sources for innovative, safe, and effective cannabis products in the country, Dixie Brands Inc. joined this partnership to help usher in the future of cannabis, which happened just a few months later in November.
We currently offer a variety of Dixie Brands products and lines including classics, like their Cherry Limeade and Berry Lemonade Elixirs.
