Cannabis Vodka is a unique alcoholic drink of its kind. The traditional vodka taste is enhanced with the taste of true Cannabis seeds. It is a mild spirit made from cereal alcohol, treated water, sugar and Cannabis seeds.
Cannabis vodka is made of hemp seeds of Beniko species (Cannabis sativa L.) which are steeped in the alcohol and remain in the bottle.
All selected Cannabis seeds are steeped in the high proof alcohol from which Cannabis vodka is made. This high proof alcohol dissolves the alcohol soluble oils from Cannabis seeds which contribute to the final Cannabis vodka taste. Once the oils are properly dissolved the seeds are removed and the charge is filtered, diluted and finally bottled with those Cannabis seeds.
Cannabis vodka is sold in 50cl bottles with an authentic label design and is 40% VOL. (80 Proof). A hand made cork cap is used with a plastic foil neck wrap.

Cannabis Liquor. Beneficial Effects and Properties
Mixing cannabis and alcohol creates a synergy that enhances the psychoactive effect of both components separately. It is thought that alcohol causes cannabinoids to be absorbed more quickly, but even so, alcohol intoxication is perceived earlier than the effect of cannabis. For this reason you should be careful when drinking alcohol and cannabis together, since it’s easy to think that it doesn’t have much effect on you and want to take more, and by the time you realize it, it’s too late.
The interaction of cannabis with alcohol causes a more introspective effect than when smoked alone. It is ideal for inspiration, as it invites you to meditate and think about everything, but in a relaxed and peaceful state.
Medicinally, the effects of cannabis and alcohol together can be helpful for escape, calming anxiety, some kinds of pain or stress. In small quantities, up to 3.4 tablespoons (50 ml), it can be useful to reduce tension and open the mind, but in high doses the effect becomes narcotic, so it can be useful to treat insomnia.
Alcohol is a solvent that goes well with cannabis, because apart from extracting cannabinoids it contains its own psychoactive effects. If you find your ideal dose it can become the combination that brightens up your nights and helps you sleep better. Have you tried this combination? What do you think? Let’s hear it…
What is Cannabis-Infused Alcohol and How Do You Make It?
If you have been looking for the solution to having to juggle both a drink and a joint at a party, then we have found it for you. Cannabis-infused alcohol is a way to enjoy the effects of both intoxicants creatively. Remember to always dose with caution and be careful about mixing substances! Get started on your cannabis cocktails now!
Cannabis-infused alcohol is not tincture, although tincture is a way of extracting the components of cannabis into alcohol. Cannabis-infused alcohol is more like a cannabis vodka, for example. Cannabis-infused alcohol is finally a way to end having to juggle your joint in one hand and your drink in the other. So, then, cannabis-infused alcohol is in fact a way to get high and drunk at the same time — safely!
Consuming cannabis and alcohol at the same time doesn’t come without its risks, so it’s recommended you attempt this with caution. At just the right amounts, cannabis and alcohol can create quite a pleasant sensation together. However, it’s important not to overdo either one when mixing the two. So this is a guide on how you can enjoy alcohol and cannabis together in one very potent drink.
The risks associated with mixing cannabis and alcohol
Mixing weed and alcohol is usually known as cross fading, although this is usually describing the act of using alcohol and marijuana separately, rather than infused into one drink. This does not come without its risks, so before you go making your own cannabis-infused vodka, consider a way to consume this safely so that you can have a good experience.
The scientific effects of mixing alcohol and cannabis are generally unknown, and most of the information we have comes from observation. Drinking and consuming marijuana in large amounts can cause greening out, which almost everyone who has used marijuana is familiar with. In any case, it’s not a nice experience to be white, sweaty, and vomiting.
It is also observed that using the two together can actually amplify the effects of the other. That means you can get much higher and drunker much faster by using the two at the same time. This is especially true because of the effect alcohol has on the blood. This can mean the body absorbs THC much faster, and this can also cause an anxious reaction.
It is also important to point out that cannabis is often used as a means of combating nausea. That is because it contains agents that make it difficult for the body to vomit. However, the body’s natural reaction towards alcohol poisoning is vomiting it out, and so having the two in conflict could potentially be dangerous in a situation where the person has consumed too much alcohol.
