What Is A Cannabis Quencher?
To put it plainly, a cannabis quencher is a cannabis-infused drink that helps quench your thirst. There are some that are CBD-based while others help you get high with the THC it contains. Basically a quencher is anything that quenches your thirst but it is usually a fruity and tropical drink.
People can make a tincture to put in their quencher or make their own. There are cannabis-infused syrups that go perfectly with carbonated drinks of various types.
