The addition of cannabis vodka to the vast array of niche products containing cannabis may come as no surprise to some. Particularly to those who have been following the trends in the cannabis/CBD industry. It seems that cannabis can be found or incorporated into almost any mainstream product on the market, and now that reach has found its way to alcohol too.
Cannabis vodka may seem like a tempting way to get drunk and high at the same time, but that is far from what cannabis vodka will actually do. While there are some vodkas that are fused with weed and do contain plenty of THC (Green Dragon, for those who are not familiar), most of the cannabis vodkas you will find in the market contain industrial hemp and less than 0.3% THC (the potency that is found in CBD products).
That means that the vodka has a fragrant and cannabis-like aroma due to some of those terpenes, giving it a very fresh, herby, and refreshing scent. This vodka hybrid adds a slightly modern twist to cocktails and works as an excellent substitute for gin too. So, as for cannabis vodka, it’s not so much about the effect. It will still get you drunk, but you’re not going to get high. Cannabis vodka is more about the unique flavor of cannabis through the terpenes that are incorporated into the vodka.
So now that you know a little bit about what cannabis vodka is, we’ll be taking a look at some specifications, such as where you can buy it, how much it costs, and what people are saying about this recently added gem to the cannabis-infused line.
