You Might Not be Getting as Much THC as You Think in Your Cannabis Beverage
One notable trend in the cannabis industry has been the surge of cannabis-infused beverages. While they still only make up about 6% of industry sales, their growth has steadily been in the double digits. But, according to a post on The Motley Fool, you’re getting robbed if your cannabis drinks are in aluminum containers.
Scientist have determined that the lining used on aluminum containers can attract THC molecules, causing them to stick and not flow to the consumer when drinking a cannabis beverage. This depletes the potency of the drink, causing the consumed THC levels to be lower than what’s promised on the label. An alternative to aluminum is, of course, glass containers, but these are more costly for beverage producers.
