How much THC is the right amount for pot-infused drinks?

Canopy Growth Crop. unveiled its new portfolio of products on Thursday that included a handful of drinks.

At the presentation, the cannabis giant noted how alcoholic drinks have shot glasses, wine glasses and pints — cups appropriate to the strength of each type of beverage.

Canopy had to find the cannabis equivalent.

So, what is the magic number?

The company thinks the answer is 2 mg of THC per drink.

While some regular cannabis users may think that isn’t enough THC, Canopy thinks it will force consumers to pace themselves and produce a similar amount of intoxication to one alcoholic drink.

Canopy Growth Corp. thinks 2 mg of THC per drink is the safest way to go.

This appears to be one of the first attempts to create a “cannabis etiquette” for edibles.

The drinks also have virtually no good or bad nutritional contents with 15 calories, 0.1 grams of fat, three grams of carbs, two milligrams of sodium and .3 grams of iron, all per 150 ml.

The starting price for the drinks will be $3.49 plus tax.
