There are a lot of Medicinal Marijuana drinks on the market. Most of them suffer from the same problems. By the time you buy them, they are usually stale, and the sweetness tends to clash with the taste of the cannabis. I often find myself trying them anyway (and now that I am writing for this site I have an excuse.)
Dr Durban Marijuana Drink
I decided to try a Cannabis soda to do an edible review on (would that be drinkable?). I checked through the selection at my local dispensary, and decided on Kushtown’s Dr Durban Poison Soda. I assumed (correctly) that the “Dr” was in reference to a “Dr Pepper” type flavor. I figured that would go better with the weed taste.
As far as flavor goes, I was correct. The slightly bitter flavors of the Dr Durban Marijuana drink complement the weed taste and make it barely noticeable when drinking. This will, however, give you some pretty potent weed burps… Overall the taste is what you would expect. Dr Pepper with a hint of pot. As is usual with marijuana soda’s, this was a bit flat. I am not sure if this is a shelf life issue or if the THC somehow effects the carbonation. (if someone out there knows the answer please leave a comment below).
Of the handful of marijuana drinks that I have tried, This seems be one of the better tasting sodas. It is not overpowering, and is pretty tasty.
According to the bottle, this marijuana drink contains 78mg of THC per bottle. I have found that about 30mg of THC in an edible will give me slight effects, 50mg will make me really feel it… 78mg may be a bit to much.
According to the nutritional facts on the bottle, This marijuana drink contains:
- 90 Calories
- 0g Fat
- 70mg Sodium
- 24g total Carbohydrates
- 24g Sugar
Although it is not great for you, I think that is better then your average major brand soda. (I try not to drink a lot of soda, so I don’t have any around to compare it to.)
As far as the effects go, I must say I am a bit disappointed. I drank the marijuana drink about an hour and a half ago, and The effects are minimal. I can feel heaviness to my limbs, and a relaxing body buzz, but the head effects are non-existant.
This honestly feels more like about 30mg of THC. The effects are not nearly as intense as they were with the Trippy Truffles I reviewed last week, and they had about the same dosage. I have a feeling that the flatness of this soda, and the low intensity of the effects both point to it having been on the shelf for a while.
Chances are, This would have been great if it was fresh. I would suggest checking as to how long this has been on the shelf if you are going to try it.
