If you’re interested in cutting down on your alcohol intake, there are a number of Washington-made cannabis-infused beverages to try if you’d like something tasty to sip during social events … er, when social events are permitted again.

Mirth Provisions ( has several blends. Its line of natural sparkling tonics called Legal are a mix of bubbles, fruit and locally-sourced ingredients. At only 150 calories per bottle, it is available in pomegranate, lemon ginger, Rainier cherry, cranberry and espresso mocha. A high potency Medicinal version is also available.

Mirth’s Giant herbal shots come in four unique experiences. Waking Giant is the sativa beverage, Gentle Giant is an indica beverage, Jolly Giant is a hybrid and Mental Giant is 1:1 CBD/THC. Giant comes in eight flavors, Guarana, Rooibos, Hibiscus, Gingko Biloba, Alpha Pinene, Yerba Mate, Rhodiola Rosea and Beta-Caryophyllene.

Lehua Brands ( also offers a few beverage lines to quench your thirst. Olala professes to bring the “Aloha spirit” to your cannabis-infused sodas. The winner of Best Beverage at the 2019 Terpe Festival, Olala comes in a range of flavors, from tropical fruits like mango, pineapple and guava to traditional soda favorites, like Orange Cream and Classic Cola. Olala is also available as infused sparkling water and terpene tonic water.

How about a little something extra in your morning coffee? Lehua’s Andiamo cannabis coffee K-Cups are packed with European-roasted premium blend 100 percent Arabica beans, available with THC or THC/CBD blends in six-pack and three-pack boxes. The pods are recyclable, too!
