In a fast paced world where everyone is always in a hurry, energy drinks are a billion dollar industry. Red Bull makes so much money that they managed to help a guy free fall from the edge of space to earth. That's got to cost a pretty penny! But let's face it, energy drinks are good if you can manage to drink them in moderation. By getting a small pick-me-up like an energy drink, some people can get through their days a lot easier. But a cannabis energy drink seems to be a slight oxymoron, considering most stoners prefer the much less potent coffee or even tea. So what's the deal with cannabis energy drinks?
First off, they do contain hemp seed extract. However, since it's not a psychoactive substance and there is a small enough amount that the drink is legal. It is true that the DEA put an embargo on all food based on hemp as well as oils. But that decision was reversed in 2004. If a product contains hempseed extract, must have a THC count of 10 parts per billion or less. Since the cannabis energy drink contains less, the drink is legal (although not sold) in all states. The hempseed extract, although minute in the amount, does provide health benefits for the body and can make one feel replenished, awake, and focused.
Energy drinks do contain caffeine so it's important to be careful not to drink too many of them if you're trying to avoid getting sick. While cannabis won't cause an overdose, caffeine sure can. But when consumed in moderation, an energy drink containing natural ingredients (the cannabis energy drink is lactose free, dairy free, gluten free, and safe for vegetarians as well. This makes the specific drink much healthier than it's competitors, which pack their drinks as full as they can with absurd ingredients that do who knows what to the insides of a human stomach.
Unfortunately, the drink won't get you stoned but is probably a better choice than drinking one of the other drinks on the market. While not giving users the effects that one would expect, you're getting more benefits from a cannabis energy drink than one of the other ones. It's something worth trying if you see it around and feel like trying something new! And if not, you can always stick to the good old weed tea instead!
