You're not alone if you’ve been curious about THC drinks but feel unsure what to expect. Although the idea of drinking your weed sounds like a great alternative to smoking, it can be intimidating knowing how to get your dosage right. While finding the correct dose for you can take a little practice, we’ve got plenty of information to give you the confidence you need to start sipping on a THC drink.
Importance of Proper Dosage
It’s easy to overdo it with THC. It’s a potent substance that can send you straight into a very uncomfortable place if you’ve accidentally overconsumed it. Dizziness, nausea, and slight paranoia are just a few of the unpleasant side effects of taking too much. However, there is a sweet spot with THC, and it just takes a little practice to find the proper dosage for you.
Everyone is different, meaning we each process THC based on our own unique endocannabinoid system (ECS). This regulatory system governs several critical bodily functions like temperature, mood, sleep, hormones, and so much more. THC is a cannabinoid that locks into the ECS, creating the effects we feel from cannabis.
THC beverages are a great place to start for anyone looking to experience the social lubricating effects of cannabis without getting too high. The form factor allows you to sip as slowly as you’d like, as opposed to eating an edible and waiting to see what happens.
Typical THC MG Chart
Every state with legal weed has a legal limit for how much THC a cannabis product may contain. This is an excellent way to help consumers measure precise doses. While the legal limits vary a bit, the standard typical dosing for one serving of cannabis is 10 mg THC. For edible products, there might be many servings in one packaging. When it comes to beverages, the entire serving is typically in one container.
Ten milligrams of THC is considered a relatively average recreational dose. It’s not precisely a microdose, which is usually around 2.5-5 mg, but 10 mg is enough to feel the effects without getting too high. To compare it to alcoholic drinks, think of a 10 mg serving of THC as equal to one can of light beer.
THC drinks utilize something called nanoemulsion to ensure that the active ingredients (THC and other cannabinoids) are fully emulsified into the entirety of the beverage. This means you are consuming the THC in equal measure as you sip instead of getting a big rush at the bottom of the can. Nanoemulsion also helps make drinks taste better, offering plenty of options for delicious flavor additions.
Optimal Dosage for THC Drinks
The beauty of THC drinks is that you have control over how fast you consume them. Sure, if you chug a whole can, you might get a bit of a head rush that feels too strong. But, if you enjoy a drink and sip it leisurely, the effect will take hold slowly, giving you time to determine whether or not you’d like more.

How Many THC Beverages Should I Drink?
The best way to approach THC drinks is to start with one can and sip slowly until the effects kick in. It only takes about 15-20 minutes to feel the initial effects depending on things like experience, tolerance, how much you’ve eaten, and other factors. Effect peak around one hour and begin to dissipate within 90 minutes.
The best thing about THC drinks is that you can have more than one, or even a few, as you become comfortable with the effects. It’s a lovely way to enjoy a barbeque or gathering with your friends with THC and trust that you can stay in control while still feeling mellow and having a great time.
Remember, when in doubt always follow the golden rule: you can always take more, but you can’t take less.
