Smoking and vaping isn’t for everyone, whether it be health reasons, or just not enjoying the feel. But with cannadrinks, you get a crisp refreshing drink that won’t leave your throat or lungs feeling parched.
*Effects and timing vary by person.
A sparkling hop water with zero alcohol that’s infused with water-soluble THC from the finest California-grown cannabis. While this and other cannabis-infused drinks may seem like a relatively new fad, the first cannadrink was actually enjoyed as early as 1000 B.C. in Southern Asia for medicinal, therapeutic, and spiritual purposes. These days, it’s hard to walk into a dispensary and not see some kind of cannadrink on the shelves. But if you haven’t tried them before, you may be thinking, “What’s the big deal?”
Faster absorption also means the high will recede more quickly which make cannadrinks a great option for inexperienced and experienced users alike.
Better than your average edible.
With your average edible, your liver turns THC into 11-Hydroxy-THC. That potent metabolite is why edible highs are so much stronger than smoking and gives you that couch-lock feeling. Hi-Fi Hops comes in two doses: a 10mg THC and a balanced 5mg:5mg CBD:THC. The high is more uplifting, energetic, and functional than your standard edible.
What happens when Lagunitas, craft-brew icons, and AbsoluteXtracts, makers of the #1 full-spectrum vape cartridges in California, get together? First, it was a delicious blend of cannabis oil and hop terpenes in a high-potency vape pen that tasted like your favorite beers, next came the reason we’re all here, the next best thing to happen to weed and hops: Hi-Fi Hops.
We use water-soluble THC and CBD in Hi-Fi Hops which means the THC and CBD will enter your bloodstream without needing to be digested. You’ll start feeling it in as little as 10 minutes* since it started absorbing sublingually (through your mouth) and in your stomach before it travels through the rest of your body.
Most edibles need to be digested before you start feeling high. This is why it’s so easy to overdo it with edibles. You’re not feeling anything so you decide to eat a little more; then, two hours later, it all hits you at the same time.
Hi-Fi Hops has zero calories, zero carbs, and is gluten free which make it a much healthier option than most of the decadent edibles on the market that are full of calories, fat, carbs, and sugars.
Cannabis and hops are two different plants with a great deal in common.
But could this subspecies of hops really contain cannabinoids? Dr. Joseph decided there was one way to find out.
It was the CBD plants that Dr. Joseph was really interested in studying. He believed that they could provide an alternative source of the compound for those wanting to benefit from CBD without using cannabis itself.
Indica plants are generally shorter and bushier with broader leaves. They originated in cooler, mountainous areas such as the foothills of the Himalayas.
Can You Get CBD from Hops?
Humulus yunnanensis is a subspecies of hops which is native to South-West China and North-East India. In this area, both hops and cannabis grow wild, and one scientist, Dr. Bomi Joseph, theorized that this could allow cross-pollination to occur.
Both plants are dioecious, meaning that they produce both male and female plants , and the wind pollinates both species. Both plants also produce resinous glands which contain their active compounds. In hops plants, these are known as lupulin glands, and in cannabis, they are known as trichomes .
And the similarities between marijuana and hops do not end there. The two plants share many of their traditional uses, not to mention their effects on human health.
Medicinal Uses of Cannabis and Hops
Hops’ sedative effects are partly due to a particular alpha acid with the name 2-methyl-3-buten-2-ol. This chemical increases the activity of a neurotransmitter called GABA. GABA is an inhibitory neurotransmitter, meaning that it has the effect of calming the nervous system and reducing excitement or anxiety.
Cannabis can be divided into three subspecies : Sativa, indica, and ruderalis.
