Description

CROSS-REFERENCE TO RELATED APPLICATIONS

This application claims the benefit of U.S. Provisional Application No. 62/163,316, filed May 18, 2015, the disclosure of which is incorporated herein by reference.

TECHNICAL FIELD

This disclosure relates to the cannabis industry. In particular, the disclosure relates to cannabis compositions for use in the making beverages, methods of making beverages, and beverages.

BACKGROUND

Cannabis has a long history of being consumed for many purposes and in many forms. The psychoactive effects of cannabis are well known, however the medical benefits are just as useful. Treating glaucoma, pain management, appetite stimulation and easing anxiety are just a few of the potential benefits. The source of these effects are in the cannabinoids, a class of compounds found exclusively in the cannabis plant. Currently there are 483 identified compounds found in cannabis. The most well known, and in some ways the most important, is tetrahydrocannabniol (THC). THC is responsible for many of the psychoactive effects as well as the medicinal effects. Cannabidiol (CBD) is also another major cannabinoid comprising up to 40% of cannabis extract and could have as many health benefits as THC.

Many methods exist for extracting the cannabinoids from the cannabis plant. A common method is alcohol extraction. Using a solvent to extract the cannabinoids and then evaporating the alcohol leaving a resin. Further extraction and evaporation can yield a product that is closer to a solid. Another common method for the purposes of making edibles is placing the cannabis leaves in butter, heavy cream, oil, etc and then heating to extract the cannabinoids. The end product is then used as an ingredient in baking or cooking which usually results in a high caloric food due to the fat needed to extract the cannabinoids. Cannabinoids are soluble in fats and alcohols. Which is why when making cannabis tea the cannabinoids have to be already extracted. Just placing cannabis leaves in hot water will not effectively extract any of the vital cannabinoids.

However, the state of the art has many shortcomings. The cannabis arts do not have homogenous cannabis beverages. Existing cannabis beverages include large amounts of caloric material. Existing cannabis beverages are not capable of providing consistent cannabinoid concentrations, especially at low cannabinoid concentrations.

There exists a need for homogenous cannabis beverages. In particular there exists a need for beverages providing a consistent amount of the cannabinoid, especially at low doses.
