Cannabis Myth:
It makes people lazy and unproductive

Cannabis and Productivity Uncovered

Tell that to all the CEOs who love the plant (looking at you Bill Gates!). Cannabis has actually been shown to boost dopamine levels which helps improve your mental focus and clarity. But it’s important to find a dose that works for you. While higher THC levels can improve concentration, too much can be overwhelming and deter focus. That’s where dosing in moderation comes in. Luckily, WYNK makes microdosing delicious. The 1:1 balance of THC and CBD in WYNK offers a light, bubbly buzz that’ll suit any palate—and packed schedule.

Cannabis Myth:
You can overdose from too much...

The Realities of Cannabis Consumption

Actually, you can’t. (Thankfully!) But you can take too much, which would be—not great. “No one has ever died from a cannabis overdose,” cannabis specialist Peter Grinspoon told LifeSciencesIntelligence.

However, from personal experience and the experiences of many people I know, taking too much cannabis can lead to a very unpleasant and uncomfortable experience.” It can lead to a heightened heart rate, confusion, anxiety, panic, or paranoia. This is why it’s crucial to find your sweet spot when it comes to dosage. Enjoy a refreshing Black Cherry Fizz or Juicy Mango WYNK as a session-able way to consume cannabis. So you can be balanced, light, and social. 

Cannabis Misconception: All forms of cannabis have the same effect.

Cannabis Effects Unraveled: Exploring the Diversity of Strains and Impacts​

Yes and no. There are a wide variety of cannabis strains that can affect people differently—from indicas that help you fall asleep to Cannabis sativa that help you feel more social. Cannabis produces more than 113 unique chemical compounds called cannabinoids, and all of them have different physical and psychological benefits.

Two important cannabinoids to know are THC and CBD. THC produces the strongest psychoactive effects, releasing dopamine to the brain and creating a feeling of euphoria or calm. Whereas, CBD is much less psychoactive and more often used to provide relief for physical ailments, like inflammation and chronic pain, or to treat mental health issues like anxiety and depression.

This is why WYNK’s perfect 1:1 ratio of THC and CBD creates the ideal balanced buzz. 

Cannabis Misconception: Smoking is the only way to consume cannabis.

Beyond Smoking: The Wide World of Cannabis Consumption Methods​

Nothing could be further from the truth. There are lots of ways to consume cannabis—and there seems to be a new one developed every day. You can cook it down into a canna-butter and make some high-end baked goods, you can eat it in gummy or lozenge form, you can vape oils, apply balms, or you can drink it. Cue WYNK, a THC- and CBD-infused beverage that takes effect within 10 to 15 minutes, providing you with a perfectly timed buzz. It’s an easier, tastier, session-able way to get high.

Cannabis Misconception: 'Hemp-derived’ means Delta-8

Understanding Hemp: The Truth About Delta-8 THC and Cannabis Derivatives

They actually couldn’t be more different. Delta-8 THC is synthetic and usually contains other kinds of chemicals in order to make it more potent. Compare that to hemp, which is all-natural and grows from the ground. Hemp contains Delta-9 THC, which is responsible for cannabis’ psychoactive effects. While Delta-8 and Delta-9 both have similar components, Delta-8 produces different effects than traditional cannabis or hemp-derived products due to the presence of chemicals. So if you want to go the all-natural route, try WYNK, which infuses all of its seltzers with certified organic THC extracts. You can enjoy a chill, calm, balanced high, without any of the added chemicals.
