Best Cannabis Infused Cocktails 420



Are you ready for this year’s 4/20 party? As we approach April, you may be thinking about how to make this particular event more memorable, and we think some cannabis cocktails can help make things more interesting if you’re having friends over. 

What are CBD cocktails?

Well you’ve come across coffee cocktails, right? So instead of smoking joints (which is not for everyone), some of your fancy urban buddies may actually prefer to take their weed in a cocktail.


Cannabis cocktails are a top trend across America, which is why you will find a variety of CBD and THC cocktails on offer in bars in every major city. 

But why serve cannabis cocktails?

Why not?! Cannabinoids are awesome, and since we know that smoking pot raises the risk of lung disease because of the smoke particles, it makes sense that some people would choose to take cannabis in other forms. 

Cannabis cocktails are fantastic especially when you’re hosting friends at the house, or when you just want to impress your buddies with your mixing skills. 

And besides, it’s not only cannabis that’s used in these cocktails. For those who don’t want to get stoned, CBD is the alternative. It takes just 45 minutes average for the cocktail to have an effect; and if no THC is present, then it’s only a mild buzz.

So, what is a CBD-infused cocktail?

This is basically an alcoholic drink with a little bit of cannabidiol added to it. 

What makes a CBD cocktail different to regular cannabis cocktails is the fact that cannabidiol doesn’t have any psychotropic property – so instead of making you very high (as is typical of cannabis), it actually helps prevent some of the effects of alcohol. 

Cannabis cocktails on the other hand, make use of both CBD and THC (along with other cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids) and this makes it stronger than CBD. 

The choice is yours, but since we’re talking about the weed event of the year, it’s likely that most people will prefer to take cannabis-infused drinks instead of just CBD alone.
