What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you hear the word edible? For most people, brownies, gummies and other dessert-like treats come to mind. Yet, there’s a whole market of cannabis-infused beverages, or drinkables, that are great for both first-time and experienced users.
Drinkables are a great way to socialize with cannabis because hanging out and having a drink is already familiar territory. It may be impossible to get your 65-year-old mother to smoke a joint, but put a cannabis cocktail in her hand (knowingly!) and there’s no telling how much fun she could have.
“Grabbing a cocktail and socializing is an activity heavily ingrained in our society, so the act of drinking only seems like a natural fit for cannabis and a healthier alternative at that,” said Andrew Mieure, cannabis social use expert and founder of Top Shelf Budtending. “Imagine a time when all the guests are walking around a swanky nightclub with cannabis cocktails in hand, smiles on their faces, a perfect buzz to dance to and no hangover in the morning. This is the future I am trying to help create.”
