Veryvell’s Sicilian Lemon Sparkling Water
Veryvell’s Sicilian Lemon Sparkling Water is one of the latest cannabis-infused beverages to hit the market from Truss Beverage Co, the love child of Molson Coors and Hexo. It is a Canadian made product, bottled in Belleville, ON, which aims to “infuse your world with wonder” (Truss Beverage Co.). The 355ml delight serves up 15mg of CBD and 0.5mg of THC per serving, with a refreshing lemon twist; a perfect choice for self-care at home.
So what is different about cannabis-infused beverages over other cannabis products such as edibles? While research is scarce on the newer category of cannabis products, available information suggests that while the beverages are absorbed through the stomach in the same way as edibles, because they are liquid the effects are felt in around 30 minutes as opposed to what can be a few hours with certain edibles. Further, the effects do not last as long as with edibles, usually subsiding after a few hours. With an effect similar to alcohol, being fast acting and not as long lasting, cannabis beverages seem to combine the best elements of edibles and vapes/smoking, without their respective draw backs. They are a great option for novice users and non-drinkers wanting to mimic the effects of alcohol.
What some users refer to as the ultimate ‘mocktail’ state, cannabis beverages are as versatile as they are discreet, perfect for social gatherings as well as quiet nights at home. The Veryvell Sicilian Lemon Sparkling water is no exception, whether drinking it straight from the bottle or sprucing it up and developing your own ‘mocktail’ creation. Here is one tasty creation for anyone wanting to liven things up for a delicious dose of wellness at home:
