Take a sip of something wonderful! CQ, short for Cannabis Quencher, beverages are expertly crafted from high quality ingredients for a deliciously juicy buzz. Originating from Venice Beach, California, CQ has been committed to curating refreshing and fun cannabis drinks since 2008. Their launch in the Illinois market has certainly made a splash, and in this blog, we’ll explore a few of our favorite offerings.
Currently, the CQ beverage lineup features two product types: 2oz Shots and 12oz Cans. The shots can be sipped as is or used for mixing beverages (more on dosage below). While the same is true for the 12oz cans, these are more akin to a traditional beverage experience and in our opinion, are best enjoyed cold out of the can. 
The 2oz shots come in 25mg or 100mg dosages, and the 12oz cans come in 10mg or 100mg dosages.
