Cannabis Energy Drinks
A new kind of fast-acting cannabis energy drink called Hi5 Energy now blends THC and Caffeine
While the addition of THC-infused drinks to the edible lineup has generated a major buzz, there’s a new player stepping forward: Hi5 Energy, a cannabis energy drink. People have been combining cannabis and coffee for years. However, energy drinks offer a new opportunity to combine weed and caffeine for a grab-and-go beverage capable of delivering a unique experience. The question is, what are weed energy drink effects? Here we take a closer look at everything there is to know about fast acting cannabis energy drinks.
What Does the Addition of Caffeine Do to a Marijuana Product?
Even though the idea can sound counterintuitive, caffeine and cannabis can actually marry well for a desirable outcome. Caffeine offers stimulant properties, while THC tends to be more relaxing. Nevertheless, the two do not counteract one another at all. The cannabis energy drinks may, more often than not, deliver a giddy buzz that keeps you be a bit more alert than what tends to happen when using THC alone.
How Caffeine and THC Affect the Endocannabinoid System
Cannabinoids are processed by the body through what is referred to as the endocannabinoid system (ECS). When THC enters the bloodstream, it is broken down and then binds to specific receptors in the ECS until those compounds are metabolized. The binding action of THC is proposed as the reason why THC causes its euphoric effects; it interferes with nerve impulses sent between the brain and body.
Caffeine seems to have an effect on the endocannabinoid system, but in a totally different way than cannabinoids like THC. A study done in 2018 found that caffeine reduced the metabolites produced by the ECS. In general terms, this means that caffeine seems to slow down the ECS.
People who have tried a weed energy drink have described the high as a “more contained” giddy buzz. Some report that instead of feeling tired and foggy, which can be common with THC, they felt more alert, yet still euphoric. So, what you essentially end up with is a mellow, but alert high. This very effect is what a lot of people are seeking when they use cannabis alongside their morning coffee.
Fast-Acting Edibles vs Traditional Marijuana Edibles
Fast-acting edibles have truly changed the way people enjoy THC in edible form. For the longest time, it was a given that if you consumed a THC edible, you had to wait between 30 and 90 minutes for the effects to hit. However, a state-of-the-art nano-emulsification process breaks down the THC into microscopic particles. This unique form of THC can be infused with cannabis drinks, such as Hi5 Seltzers.
Because the cannabinoid particles are smaller, it does not take as long for the body to process them. Therefore, someone drinking something like a Hi5 Seltzer can start to feel the effects in as little as five minutes. This makes cannabis drinks made using this type of THC desirable for social situations. The high is quick, and the effects are easier to control without going overboard.
