Two Cannabis-Infused Cocktails for Christmas

Two Cannabis-Infused Cocktails for Christmas

2020 is almost done, so let’s raise a glass and shake up Two Cannabis-Infused Cocktails for Christmas.

At the beginning of COVID, I admit my daily dose went up, as did my cocktail drinking.

Without fail, just about every day from March 2020 until June or so, I would have a delicious little cocktail at around 4:30pm.

I didn’t even care if it was 5:00 O’clock anywhere, Mama needed her cocktail!

Can you relate?

So like clockwork, I would have all of my little bottles and elixirs, fresh orange zest or whatever garnishes I was in the mood for all ready to go.

A little shake-shake-shake with ice, a beautiful glass, and voila! I dealt with COVID my way.

Cannabis Cocktails Are The Best!

Here’s what I didn’t know back then, that I know now. (sounds like a familiar song for all those around 40+)

Have you ever heard of crossfading? It does not happen in the studio when you’re laying tracks.

Crossfading is super important to know when you’re consuming both cannabis and alcohol.

If you don’t want this effect, but you’re into a delicious and refreshing cannabis cocktail with CBD – check out Cannabis Cocktails – Hemp You Can Feel.

What Is Cross Fading?

Cross Fading occurs when you drink booze, and toke, smoke, or eat edibles with cannabis (THC).

You need to be mindful of this effect – which basically means you’ll feel effects from first, the alcohol, and then second; cannabis.

If you have ever been around or near an audio mixer, you’ll notice all of the sliders and buttons designed for the best sound possible.

Crossfading is a blended combination of sounds – and in this case, a blended combo of feeling high or buzzed.

It’s important that you always keep what I call: ” My Marijuana Mantra” at the ready:

“Dose LOW and SLOW”

Edibles take a while to kick in – for some an hour, for others a few. So if you’re just starting out, don’t pound the shots or martinis – sip and enjoy, go slowly.
