There are a lot of gimmicky products on the market nowadays.
For instance, I don’t need a fancy drink to mellow myself out when it’s just a non-caffeinated tea with some melatonin and l-theanine inside.
Sure it’s probably going to feel sedating to some extent, but the markup on that sort of product is much higher than one might initially assume. But back in high school when we wanted to feel cool without actually smoking real cannabis, we’d buy these products and would be convinced of their effects through the placebo effect only. Nowadays I just stick to cannabis and get all of my products from a legal cannabis dispensary near my house. There are all sorts of gimmicky cannabis products that constantly come and go, and recently I saw that they were selling cannabis drinks for the first time. Despite the obviously gimmicky nature, I was intrigued by the cannabis drink and decided to buy one. When I got it home and started to take swigs of the drink, I was surprised that it didn’t hit me hard at all. I looked at the ingredient list and it said cannabis distillate oil. I knew that this was the likely culprit for why the cannabis drink wasn’t stronger. When cannabis oil is distilled, a lot of cannabinoids, terpenes, fats, and lipids are stripped from the product. The more of these components that remain, the stronger the effects of the cannabis products. I don’t think I’ll be buying another cannabis drink anytime soon, at least not until they come out with live rosin drinks in my state. I have heard about companies out west that produce live rosin cannabis drinks.
