How long will it take before I can start to feel any effects?
While it varies from person to person, it normally begins between 5 and 15 minutes after consuming about a quarter of a can. This will also differ depending on the brand of cannabis beverage, because not all cannabis liquid extracts are produced by the same method. With State B, we are using a premium emulsion that we have found to be the most bio-available one on the market.
How many cans do I need to drink to get the desired effect?
This will also vary from person to person, depending on whether you have ever consumed cannabis. For the new user, it is recommended to start with a beverage that has 5 or 6mg of THC. At that point, you can assess whether or not you want to open up another. Much like with alcohol, the effects will wear off over time, and you will want to either prolong the state, or simply stop.
How long does it take for the effects of THC to wear off completely?
For most people, it is between 1 and 2 hours. For others, they will still feel the effects up to 3 hours afterwards. It is best to plan not to drive for at least eight hours after consuming.
How are State B beverages better than wine or a cocktail?
One State B has the quarter of the calories of an equivalent glass of wine. We sweeten our drinks with a small amount of organic agave nectar, in order to keep the grams of sugar low. We have added a blend of healthy botanicals in each State B (check out the descriptions under “Products”). One big bonus with State B is that you won’t have a hangover- so you can get up in the morning and have your workout, take care of your kids or get straight into your work!
I ate a pot brownie once, and it was one of the worst experiences of my life! How will this be different?
We completely understand the concern (and can empathize!) But you can rest assured that drinking a State B is nothing like a pot brownie. For one, the way liquid extracts metabolize makes it fast-acting, and the effects will also wear off much more quickly. For another, edibles tend to have much higher amounts of THC in them, and are more difficult to regulate in terms of what amount you are ingesting (big bite, medium bite, nibble…?) With a drink, you can sip it over the course of an hour, and feel the effects come on. When it is done, you can decide to try another right away, or wait a little while, or stop. Our drinks come in either 5mg or 10mg of THC, which for most people is an enjoyable amount, and easy to ‘adjust’.
