Benefits of Canna-Beverages
As we explored with Sicilian Lemon Sparkling Water, the cannabis-based beverage market is up and coming, preferred over edibles by some consumers due to it’s faster absorption and shorter duration of effects. With an effect similar to alcohol, being fast acting and not as long lasting, cannabis beverages seem to combine the best elements of edibles and vapes/smoking, without their respective drawbacks. With health and wellness becoming an increasing consumer priority, and 81% of cannabis consumers believing that cannabis is safer than alcohol*, many alcohol companies have been hedging their bets and making significant investments in cannabis– specifically, the cannabis beverage space. Vervell Sparkling Waters are no exception, with their parent company Truss Beverage Co, being the lovechild of Hexo and Molson Coors.
As Covid-19 restrictions continue to be lifted and social gatherings seem to be on the horizon, this summer may be the perfect opportunity to explore this alternative to alcohol consumption.
And what better way to do that than through cannabis “mocktails”? Creating your customized beverage of choice is as easy as choosing the base you wish to build upon and sparking your imagination. The combinations are endless, with a refreshing taste, a discreet dose, and a versatility that come together to result in the ultimate “mocktail” state.
Whether enjoying at a social gathering or from the comfort of home, here is one tasty creation for anyone wanting to liven things up for a delicious dose of wellness:
Strawberry Mojito Sparkling Mocktail
4-5 slices of strawberry
4-5 mint leaves
2-3 slices of lime
1 can Veryvell Strawberry Hibiscus Sparkling Water
Crush strawberry slices and mint leaves in a tall glass until fruit is broken and leaves are browned. Add 1 can of Veryvell, lime slices and ice cubes. Enjoy!
