How Long Do THC-Infused Drinks Last?

THC-infused drinks offer lasting effects that last longer than vaping or smoking. Also, they show their effects faster than edibles and can be a better, more social alternative to vaping or smoking. To give you a deeper understanding, we will delve into the details below.

What Are THC-Infused Drinks?

THC-infused drinks are liquid products containing small amounts of Delta-9 THC (tetrahydrocannabinol). They are formulated to deliver THC’s effects in a liquid form, enabling precise dosing and convenient consumption.

Precise dosing is one of the most compelling advantages of THC drinks. They ensure control of THC, so you do not take too much or too little and avoid a not-so-enjoyable experience. Additionally, their discreet nature makes them perfect for microdosing.

When you drink THC beverages, your bloodstream absorbs the cannabinoids faster. Once absorbed, your body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS) interacts with them and produces the effects.

The ECS is an intricate network of receptors and signals that interact with cannabis-derived compounds. This system is crucial in regulating essential bodily functions, such as appetite, inflammation, memory, pain perception, and sleep

Now, the answer you have been looking for: once you start feeling the effects of liquid THC drink, they will likely remain for about 2-6 hours, depending on a few factors, such as:

  • Your metabolism

  • Your tolerance to THC

  • Consumption before or after a meal

  • THC serving size

  • THC concentration in the beverage

We recommend that you start with a low dose if you are new to THC beverages. If you do not feel the desired effects, increase it gradually. That way, you can determine what works best for you.

For instance, if you have 1000 mg THC syrup, avoid consuming more than 10-20 mg of THC per serving to prevent adverse effects. It is the same with beverages, gummies, flowers, and all other THC products.

How Long Do THC-Infused Drinks Take to Kick In?

They have a better onset time than THC edibles, usually 10-15 minutes. The cannabinoids pass through your digestive system, following which the bloodstream rapidly absorbs them. This direct absorption causes you to feel the effects within 10-20 minutes of consumption.

The time cannabis drinks take to show their effects varies depending on the THC concentration, the serving size, and your body’s tolerance and metabolism. Again, for a positive and safe experience, start slow.

What Are the Benefits of Having THC-Infused Drinks?

What Are the Benefits of Having THC-Infused Drinks?

Higher doses are more potent, but low THC doses can provide more benefits. THC drinks containing CBD can provide enhanced effects because of the synergistic interaction between the cannabinoids. This combination is called the entourage effect.

However, the optimal way to make the most out of the entourage effect is to have full-spectrum CBD gummies. These are food items that combine CBD, THC, and other cannabinoids and terpenes that boost the beneficial effects.

When you consume THC with CBD, CBD enhances the tolerability and safety of THC and controls the potential adverse effects of THC, including increased heart rate, anxiety, and sedation levels. Let’s check out a few potential health benefits you can enjoy from having THC drinks:

  • THC may contain analgesic properties and can offer relief from chronic pain. Many migraine sufferers have reported reduced pain after THC intake.

  • THC may also improve appetite, which makes it beneficial for those with medical conditions or undergoing treatments like chemotherapy. Microdosing cannabis helps encourage food cravings and nutritional intake.

  • THC can support your sleep cycle. It helps improve sleep quality by nurturing relaxation and lessening sleep latency (the time you usually take to fall asleep). According to research, THC may improve sleep latency and support the maintenance of a regular sleep cycle, resulting in restful nights.

  • Taking regulated doses of THC has also shown the ability to improve concentration and focus. It is good for anybody with ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder). It may also help alleviate impulsivity and hyperactivity. Low dopamine contributes to ADHD. Those with inadequate dopamine in their brain can experience anxiety and depressive episodes. A 2012 study highlighted that Delta 9 improves the brain’s dopamine levels, resulting in better feelings of well-being and cognitive functioning.

  • Some studies have shown that low doses of THC may have anticancer effects by hindering metastasis and tumor growth.

  • THC promotes neurogenesis, the process of neuron formation, which may benefit brain health and offer potential neuroprotective effects against dementia.

THC may encourage hippocampal neurogenesis, prevent neurodegenerative processes, safeguard from inflammation-induced cognitive damage, and restore cognitive function and memory.


So, now you know how long THC-infused drinks last in your system. THC is beyond euphoric, with the potential to treat various conditions. However, if it is your first time trying THC, talk to a healthcare professional or a THC expert to determine if THC drinks are ideal for you.
