- You get a faster high
Many times it takes more than 30 minutes to experience the high when having marijuana brownies. This is because it is dependent on the factors like metabolism, genetics and your digestive tract status. The slow high can be frustrating for the patients seeking fast relief. Infused drinks are the best. First, they are liquids, beverages make the food more digestible quickly and compounds like THC or CBD is easily sucked away into the bloodstream. It may take half an hour to two hours to feel the effects of solid edible. The only con with weed drinks is, the effects aren’t as prolonged as the edible.

When these stuff give a stronger experience, you have to consume more to have a longer feel. Higher dosage of THC can be a tad bit overwhelming for the newbies who aren’t used to it. Sometimes it is too much to handle. Smaller doses let people enjoy weed drinks in a single setting. This means better dosage and high.
