A straight question – What does it feel like to drink cannabis-infused beer? Ummmm but the actual question was – Does cannabis-infused beer get you high? It can be yes, but also a no!
It surely does if it contains THC (TetraHydroCannabinol). But as it is completely illegal for the breweries to add THC to their beer, all you have to do is DIY psychoactive weed beer for your own personal consumption at home, something which we should not get to. Now take a look at the kind of cannabeer that does not get you high and also never leads you to a hangover: CBD (CannaBiDiol) beer.
Keep the THC aside, please –
George Washington’s Secret Stash, a sativa IPA, is America’s first federally approved cannabis-infused beer. This cannabeer has the hush-hush ingredient: CBD, which is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid. But what exactly does CBD do? Getting more to the point, if it doesn’t get you high, why bother infusing it into beer?
CBD is said to aid three particular interests when talking about pairing with alcohol: anxiety, inflammation and liver disease. Now a couple of questions come into the picture: Can a CBD-infused beer, help in preventing the anxiousness of over-drinking in social situations? Would it condense inflammation and recover the next day’s hangover? Would it cure liver damage?
Numerous scientific studies have scrutinized CBD and alcohol interaction. One of the studies stated that combining CBD and alcohol results in lower blood alcohol levels than the same amount of plain alcohol. It has also confirmed that CBD can actually protect the liver from the absurd effects of alcohol. This study has concluded that, if ever there were a thing called as a healthy beer, CBD-infused beer is a strong challenger.
Cannabeer is a misunderstood vitamin. You need to know that it makes everything better!
