So much has been learned from the legalization of the recreational marijuana markets in Colorado and Washington. One major point learned is that no matter what a person’s level of experience is with marijuana edibles and beverages, it is impossible to go back once too much has been consumed. Although, overindulging in ingestible cannabis will not result in death, it can result in extremely unpleasant feelings of disorientation, anxiety, paranoia, and nausea.
Colorado’s most popular edibles manufacturer, Dixie Elixirs and Edibles, released a new line of single serving THC-infused beverages to the Centennial State’s recreational market in an effort to help combat accidental overindulgence for tourists and residents alike.
One of the new 10 mg items —Lift Citrus Acai Drink — is enhanced with Dixie Boost, and will be a perfect fit for the new recreational edibles packaging regulations in Colorado. Dixie has also recently released a line of 5 mg THC infused beverages, starting with the Dixie One Watermelon Cream, that are ideal for first time users.
This 1 ounce shooter, containing 10 active milligrams of THC, is ideal for both novice and experienced users who want to get the job done without having to consume a lot to get there. Dixie’s Boosted products contain ingredients that allow for sublingual absorption before gastrointestinal absorption, which promotes a quicker onset of effects. Users are encouraged to swish these products in the mouth for up to 30 seconds before swallowing to increase the rate of absorption. This information and more is explained below in the How Dixie Boosted Works section.
The Lift Dixie Boosted Citrus Acai Drink tastes similar to pomegranate lemonade with a sweet finish of citrus fruit. It is packaged in a small, sleek, and portable bottle that is discrete enough to fit in your pocket. Plus, the cap is replaceable, so it could be split into two servings if desired. All nutritional and ingredient information is provided in a clear and concise manner. The expected wait time and milligrams of active THC are also clearly marked and prominent to even the briefest of glances.
The warnings of quick onset of effects should be taken seriously. I drank the entire one ounce bottle before walking to the grocery store, and I began to feel subtle effects before I was through the checkout line (about 25 minutes). For me, the full effects settled in after about an hour, but it could take up to two hours for some consumers.
How Dixie Boosted Works
Research has indicated that Quercetin, Resveratol and D-Riobos, three ingredients in the Dixie Boosted Citrus Acai Drink, increase absorption into fatty tissues because they increase metabolism. When the body’s metabolism increases, the cellular uptake also increases, which accelerates the onset of effects felt from THC consumption. This means that consumers can expect to feel the effects from Lift Boosted Citrus Acai Drink more quickly than with most other forms of ingestible marijuana products.
As the label states, “Lift is Dixie Boosted with a proprietary blend of natural ingredients that enable your cells to absorb THC more quickly. This means a more pronounce ramp-up effect and a faster onset of euphoria. Due to the ingredients in Lift the effects of THC contained are enhanced, meaning that although it is technically an appropriate dose for a novice user, the rapid onset may not make it the most ideal option for the first time.”
