Hydrating with Cannabis Drinkables: Classic Summer Refreshments with a THC Twist

Quench Your Thirst with These Buzzy, Must-Have Drinks That Are Perfect for Any Hot Day

Summer is all about having fun in the sun, and with that comes a lot of energy-zapping heat. But instead of just glugging down standard seltzers, lemonade or plain ol’ water to fend off the summer swelter, what if you could have the perfect cannabis-infused experience with every swig that also hydrates you?


Well, pull down those shades and check out ebb, a new dissolvable THC powder from Platinum Brands (the makers of TasteBudz infused gummies) that is redefining what an infused edible can be.


Eco-friendly ebb works fast thanks to nano-emulsion technology, and comes in three natural fruit flavors (plus a Pure unflavored option) that are delicious on their own or perfect for creating your own beverage blends. With 10mg of THC in each packet, you can have a reliable, elevated experience wherever adventure takes you.


Another benefit of this versatile, low-sugar and gluten-free edible are functional ingredients that give your body an extra lift. Orange Mango ebb is loaded with Vitamin C to support immunity, and Wildberry ebb has electrolytes for a hot-weather hydration boost.


Whether you’re chilling at the park or finishing up a marathon hike, ebb is great on the go as a delicious and discreet summertime sidekick. Try out these refreshing ideas for enjoying ebb and see how it's changing summertime sippin’ for good.

Infused Sparkling Wildberry Mojito

Known as Cuba’s signature cocktail, the mojito (which is slang for “sauce”) is a delightfully simple drink consisting of rum, simple syrup, mint, lime and club soda that’s equally delicious sans rum. While it's at home on the beach or during a game of corn hole, the added pucker and sweetness of berries makes this mojito mocktail an even more mouth-popping treat for cookouts and daytime fun.


Ingredients (serves 1)

  • Crushed ice

  • ½ cup fresh or frozen blueberries (reserve a few whole berries for garnish)

  • ½ cup water

  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice (about half of a lime)

  • Fresh mint leaves

  • 1 packet of ebb electrolyte-enhanced Wildberry


Steps:
