As the holidays come to a close, making resolutions to do something differently or healthier is common. In lieu of the sometimes seemingly endless amount of alcohol that is easy enough to consume during all the celebratory gatherings during the holidays, a “Dry January” often makes it onto the new year’s agenda.

While there is nothing wrong with taking a break from alcohol for a while, Dry January doesn’t necessarily mean going without. Maybe the resolution could also be to try something new, like a THC drink a la Hi5 cannabis infused seltzer with no hangovers.

What Is a Cannabis infused Seltzer?

Hi5 Fruit Flavors for Dry JanuaryA cannabis infused seltzer is cannabis-infused seltzer water that delivers a certain amount of THC (delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol) in every serving. The drink itself is refreshing and most are flavored with some kind of additive to make the sipping experience completely enjoyable. While you can get your hands on quite a few different THC drinks, Hi5 Seltzers are some of the most popular.

When you drink a Hi5 Seltzer, you are getting a cannabis drink made with no calories, natural fruit flavors, and awesome varieties like Cranberry, Pineapple, Pomegranate, Black Cherry, and Grapefruit. However, the primary attribute that makes a Hi5 THC drink different is that they are fast-acting and made using a state-of-the-art nano-emulsification process that breaks down the THC into these microscopic particles. Therefore, you feel the effects of each sip within about five minutes.

Why THC Drinks Instead of Alcohol for Dry January

It can be a matter of opinion, but most would say having an alcoholic beverage can have its place or perks. Alcohol can also be a bit of a socially enjoyable thing. However, alcohol does have its downfalls, especially if you consume a lot of it. A few of the effects alcohol can have on the body when you drink often or heavily include:

  • Dehydration
  • Liver inflammation
  • Effects on blood sugar levels
  • Damage to the digestive system
  • Ill effects on the reproductive system
  • A weakened immune system

While a drink or two will probably be fine when it comes to alcohol, taking a break from it can definitely be something to try if you drink frequently. By contrast, high-quality THC drinks are not known to pose so many potentially serious repercussions for your body. Further, cannabis infused beverages can be just as fitting for a social setting. So, even if you are trying to cut alcohol for a few weeks, a Hi5 Seltzer is still befitting when you want to have a good time.

What Is It Like to Drink a Cannabis Infused Seltzer?

blog-hi5-watermelonMost people assume cannabis drinks are a lot like edibles. Some drinks infused with THC do yield similar effects, but the experience does differ. Instead of consuming the THC all at one time, where it gets broken down in the digestive tract and then metabolized, your body gets the THC a little at a time. This means that the buzz is a little scalable instead of hitting you all at once. When drinking a Hi5 Seltzer, the THC takes effect so quickly that you can easily gauge just how much you want to drink according to how you’re feeling.
