Chil mixers are adding new meaning to the term “chilled” drink. This week, I tried out two different cannabis-infused drink mixers from Chil, a California-based cannabis company whose main goal is to make edibles for those who want to relax.
I tried out two of the powdered drink mixers, a 10mg THC-infused lemon flavored one, and a watermelon mixer with 5mg THC to 5mg CBD. They’re both labeled as fast acting, discreet, and all-natural. They come with small booklets that tell you how to use the packets and what they’re supposed to make you feel.
Chil Drink Mixers
5 mg THC to 5 mg CBD
The Chil mixers can be used as mocktails, or added to beverages like lemonade, cranberry juice, sparkling water, or a water bottle, which is what I did.
If I had to do it over again, I would add it to a drink with more flavor because the flavor in the packet itself was barely noticeable. It tasted as if only a few drops of lemon were added to the water. The water bottle I put it in was also large, about 32 ounces, so there was a lot of it to drink and I got sick of the flavor after a while.
As for the effects, it was really relaxing. It took about twenty minutes to feel the effects, which was advertised on the packets. These would be best for a beach day or when lounging around all day. After a while I began to get tired, so maybe plan a nap for the day you try these.
The watermelon option had less THC and more CBD. It was labeled as having a social/relieving effect, which I took to mean you’re supposed to feel more lively with this one.
I learned from my mistakes with the lemon mixture, and put the watermelon mix in a smaller cup, only about 12 oz, so there was less to drink. There was still hardly any flavor — just the smallest hint of watermelon — but I liked this one better, and didn’t mind sipping on it for awhile.
When I tried this one I was not having the greatest mental health day, and I think the relieving effects of this drink really did help. My mood started to lighten and I felt more calm and focused. I even kept reaching for the glass after I had already finished it!
As such, I recommend this drink mix for people with anxiety, or even if you’re just feeling stressed and need a breather.
Overall I thought these were really cool cannabis-infused drink mixers. The company emphasizes dosing responsibly and these packets are a great way to do that. I never felt high, just relaxed and happy. The flavors themselves could use some work, but thankfully they didn’t taste like cannabis as some edibles do.
