Deep Space by Tweed is a 10mg THC drink and cost $9.20 per 222 ml can. Using nanoemulsions, Tweed drinks are designed to be fast acting in ten minutes as opposed to 45 minutes for edibles. From our own personal consumption profile, we do not have a positive view on cannabis edibles and beverages as a meaningful consumption category compared to dried flowers and concentrates. That was before we discovered nanoemulsions. Let’s check this out.
The “high” starts with tingling sensations in your head. Deep Space lightly carbonated have a Cherry Coke and cough syrup smell and taste. We managed to consume the entire can in ten minutes. We could feel the effects by the time we were finishing the drink. We felt a little bit elevated and tipsy. There is a little bit of uplift. If we were with friends drinking alcohol, the drink effect would mirror the alcohol drink effects timeline. We would all be in sync getting inebriated.
On cue around the 45 minute mark, the “high” experience emerges with a strengthening of euphoria and increasing energy. By the hour mark, we believe the effects were in full force, which is equivalent to inhaling some weak cannabis. We will need at least two or three cans to get to where we want to be with just 0.26 grams of Broken Coast’s Quadra, or WMMC Sour Jack, of a FIGR’s Wappa. At $9 a can, the cost benefit analysis would have to favour “Flower.”
About an hour and a half into the session, we aborted the review mission. We were not having a good time on the beautiful sunny Saturday with Deep Space. We rolled and lit up one Spinach’s Diesel saving our day. Immediately, we were released from our physical constraints to radiating vibrant joy and full of optimism. The effects of a well rendered prolific strain can change us by extending our senses wrapped with joy immersed in intense creativity is something not found in the Deep Space beverage.
Activity pairing may include social gatherings as an alternative to alcoholic drinks. For the health conscious and occasional cannabis user, cannabis beverages maybe more effective and appealing.
