cannabis cocktail

The time from Chanukah and Christmas through the new year is full of gathering and events. The holidays are the perfect time to imbibe and have a little extra fun with cannabis infused cocktails. For many, this is a stressful time with filled schedules, family gatherings, travel, and hectic shopping trips. The most wonderful time of the year can feel like exactly the opposite, but that’s where cannabis comes in!

These cannabis infused cocktails are just what Santa baby ordered, and they’re super easy to make. You can essentially make any cocktail cannabis or CBD infused cocktail by adding some tincture, but these recipes are especially festive and the perfect flavor combinations to compliment cannabis.

While consuming cannabis with alcohol, it’s important to remember that the combination could be a little too much for some. It is thought that adding CBD to alcoholic beverages can actually help you feel better, consume less overall, and have a deeper feeling of happiness and peace. However, the more cannabis infused cocktails you consume, the more cannabis and alcohol you’re also consuming. If you’ve never mixed the two before, it may be best to try these cocktails out in the safety and comfort of your own home before venturing out to a family, work, or social gathering.

Everyone will react differently, and as always, low dosages and slow consumption are the way to go. However you choose to consume, these specialty cocktails are sure to spice up the party and have you feeling the holiday cheer.
