THC infused food and drink is one of our most favorite subjects to discuss, here in Illinois. We hear a lot about this from our readers as well. You want to know what the latest offerings are, how they taste, and where to find them. We’re entering a golden time for edibles and drinkables, for sure, as the options keep expanding. This is especially true for beverages, here in our state. Here’s where to get this popular THC infused drink coming to Illinois.
What is it and why should I care?
Remember when we told you about Cann, previously? Well if not, to jog your memory, it’s a line of cannabis sparkling beverages, coming to Illinois this spring. Just in time for the beginning of outdoor event season here in the upper Midwest, they’re hoping to make a big impact here.
So why are these weed drinks so popular?
They’re popular in other markets and pretty successful because they’re actually good. Drinkables are notorious for being, shall we say, less than tasty. But that’s all changing as manufacturers are getting more sophisticated and knowledgeable in how they’re actually formulating their beverages.
So tell me more, what’s in them?
First off, each drink contains all-natural juice, as opposed to concentrate. They’re micro-dosed with CBD and THC extract. You can get them in three flavors: Lemon Lavender, Grapefruit Rosemary, and Blood Orange Cardamom. Similar to that of other carbonated beverages, you can buy them in 6-packs of 8 ounce cans.
So why would I prefer to ingest THC this way?
Cann enthusiasts like the fact that these beverages are vegan, low in sugar and calories, contain no preservatives, and no artificial sweeteners. The goal is for these to be similar to a glass of wine or a light beer in terms of the buzz you feel, and social settings you’d consume them in. The drinks are designed to give the user an uplifting feeling without alcohol’s hangover or other bad effects.
All right, I’ll try them. So where do I get Cann in Illinois?
Green Thumb Industries’s line of dispensaries, Rise, is where to get them. In fact, GTI is now in an exclusive partnership with Cann to produce and distribute the drinks in Illinois and elsewhere, through Rise. So look for that partnership to keep expanding.
Ok, great. So what else?
As we look towards the future, and things opening up in so many ways, we’ll have more to share shortly. More products and services are rolling out as we speak, so we will let you know about those asap. Whether it’s a THC infused drink, or other weed related news, keep checking back on this and all of our posts when you can, as they update regularly.
