Cannabis is very versatile and can be used in a variety of ways and administered with ease according to your preferences. While you probably heard about edibles with cannabis, did you hear about beverages with extracts from the same plant? What if you would have the occasion to enjoy a tasty glass of wine with cannabis? Cannabis infused wine is part of today’s reality if you know where to look for it. Of course, wine is not the only beverage that enjoys such an upgrade. Spirits can be found as well. Let us take a closer look at this aspect, starting an incursion in the fascinating world of cannabis beverages.
Certain compounds derived from the cannabis plant, more precisely CBD, is known for having a positive impact on health. While CBD can indeed be regarded as an alternative treatment, it can also be used as a supplement. It has phytonutrients valuable for our organisms, helping us fight against fatigue, insomnia, anemia, poor appetite, and even in the case of diarrhea. So, even if you don’t suffer from a particular health condition, you could still utilize CBD as a vitamin supplement, together with a healthy diet and active lifestyle. This way, you can start feeling better, enjoy a higher level of energy, good digestion, and better mood per overall.
If CBD is a supplement, why shouldn’t it be added to our preferred beverages? It’s not like we drink wine or other beverages instead of water. A glass of cannabis-infused wine now and then can bring together the benefits of wine and its antioxidant powers and the properties of cannabidiol at the same time, as an example. You should know that there are no risks associated with the consumption of CBD, especially if we are talking about low doses. In fact, there weren’t recorded cases of CBD overdose, although there are some side-effects if the dose of CBD is exaggerated in comparison with the body weight of the person consuming it or the frequency of administration.
In case you are interested in beverages containing cannabis extract, it is worth knowing that there’s a special cannabis expo taking place this summer, dedicated entirely to cannabis drinks. More precisely, on the 25th of July, in San Francisco, California, a cannabis expo regarding drinks improved with this particular plant will be available to experts and curious people at the same time. Whether you have a business in this sector and would like to exhibit your products or you simply want to check out the available offer, it is definitely worth attending. The whole idea of this event is to bring together cannabis enthusiasts and business owners and players in the drink industry, in order to consolidate this sector of the market and discuss the potential future threats and problems that may arise.
As it is already known, in spite of the fact that cannabis is legalized by many states, in particular, cannabis used for medicinal purposes, this market niche is far from being regulated as it should be. This means difficulties for each side of the barricade. Consumers have to know these products very well and how to check them in order to get the desired level of quality and providers to have to work hard to earn the trust of potential customers while struggling to advertise and market their products on a market where cannabis is still considered a drug. The fact that cannabis can have a positive impact on human health and that there are cannabis compounds that do not trigger any psychoactive effects are both well known. Yet, the cannabis plant still can be found categorized as a drug by governmental institutions and organizations, which means a lot of restrictions on various levels.
One of the goals of the cannabis expo that will take place in California, together with other similar expos, is to bring awareness on the benefits of legalizing cannabis for real. In many states, cannabis is still illegal, with the possibility of being used only with a prescription from a doctor in the best case scenario. This is in spite of the fact that medicinal marijuana and CBD products do not alter one’s state of mind, ability to focus or think. Apparently, the government needs more evidence that CBD does not represent a rick and that its use, even in the event of an exaggeration or abuse, will not do any harm or turn a person in a danger for the community.
We cannot ignore the fact that the market surrounding cannabis is growing, as more and more discover the benefits of using this plant in various forms. Scientific studies, still not very many at the moment, can confirm that cannabis can indeed be used for improving one’s state of health, mind, and mood. Yes, there is still cannabis that is used for recreational purposes, and here we are talking about the notorious marijuana, but it is worth knowing that there are very many strains of cannabis, each having its own properties and composition. Medicinal cannabis is harmless and products containing CBD have this extract obtained from hemp, not marijuana. Thus, there is a more than the obvious difference between the products made to help one’s organism and those made for the so-called “recreational” purposes, the ones that give that sensation of “high”. So, if you decide to try cannabis-infused wine, you can be sure that the “high” sensation you may be experiencing will come entirely from drinking too much wine and not because there’s a cannabis content within the wine.
The cannabis expo we are talking about is just as serious as any other public event that wishes to bring forward important aspects to the public and anyone interested in the subject. Thus, there will be conferences hosted by a wide range of public speakers, coming from various domains and representing different companies and institutions. The aspects treated at these conferences will definitely give the political, scientific, and medical fields something to think about. Perhaps it is time to let go of our prejudices and face the truth, a truth that shows the fact that products like CBD oil have much more benefits than disadvantages. There’s no doubt that more studies are needed, especially when it comes to using CBD as a treatment for various conditions. But, until then, let us focus on how to make this plant and its amazing benefits available to the general public. The demand is growing, so everyone should join forces to make this possible in an environment that is safe from every party involved. This means proper regulations implemented in this market niche, quality standards, and rules that should be respected by the providers of such products.
Everyone could benefit from the legalization of cannabis, so this aspect should be seriously considered by the government. Legalizing cannabis, when done right and in collaboration with experts from this particular field, will not mean that the country will turn into a home for addicts and junkies. There are strains of cannabis that are rich in CBD and very low in THC, which means that using extracts from these plants will not affect a person in a negative manner. On the contrary, it was proven that the use of CBD can increase one’s ability to focus, by diminishing negative states and emotions. So, the cannabis expo that focuses on beverages containing extracts from this particular plant will talk about these aspects and how it is possible to come up with products that will not act like drugs once consumed.
We have to admit that the idea of cannabis-infused wine is more than interesting. It will also be interesting in finding out what the experts have to say about it and what other topics will be approached during the event. Considering that this market niche is only going to grow from now on, instead of trying to prevent what will happen, we could all work together in creating a healthier market for this type of products. Unfortunately, when it comes to an unregulated market, the consumer is the one that suffers the most. Where regulations are absent or are ambiguous, there will always be some that will try to take advantage and sell poor quality or even dangerous products. So, out of the desire to enjoy the benefits of cannabis, one can end up consuming products that have a THC level that is too high or products that are contaminated with chemicals and toxic compounds.
We need more than just one cannabis expo and we definitely need to learn more about cannabis-infused wine. Luckily, this type of events multiplied in the past time, giving everyone a chance to acquire valid and useful information in this particular sector. Knowledge is power, so instead of allowing yourself to be driven by false assumptions and opinions that are not based on facts, you should be part of this expo and hear what the experienced experts have to say about it. Participating at such an expo is even more useful if you’re looking to develop a business in this sector or you’re already struggling to keep one on the floating line. The information that you will acquire will help you in very many ways and you will also have the chance to network with the people that can offer the support you may need.
