Mother’s Day is almost here, so you probably need a drink and a cannabis-infused one at that.

From lightly infused seltzers to French Rosé made with THC, an infused drink works to cheers with, relax with or offer as an unusual yet chic Mother’s Day gift. And, if you or your mom aren’t ready to get high just yet, there’s an excellent CBD wellness drink option that allows you to explore the plant power of cannabis without psychoactive effects. So, keep reading for the seven best cannabis-infused beverages to celebrate Mother’s Day with.
The brand Cann has become almost synonymous with cannabis beverages. The celebrity-approved social tonics come available in delightful flavors such as lemon lavender, grapefruit rosemary, and ginger lemongrass. Opt for a six-pack with a microdose of 2mg of THC and 4mg of CBD, or “Hi Boys” containing 5mg of THC.
Don’t call it a soda; Jamu is a wellness drink. The gorgeous beverage, sure to please the pickiest of mothers, comes in four flavors, including Bio Hemp. In addition to CBD, it contains ginger and curcuma, two other powerful well-being boosters. And don’t worry about artificial additives; curcuma is what gives the drink its delightful orange color. If you or your mom are curious about cannabis beverages, but not ready to dive into THC, Jamu is the ideal drink to begin with.
The aptly named Good Stuff cannabis beverages offer three options in line with cannabis culture. There’s the uplifting sativa raspberry lemonade, the indica calm strawberry hibiscus lemonade, and a high-CBD hybrid of black cherry lemonade. Regarding dosage, each 12-ounce full-sized bottle contains 2mg of THC in each capful. Try their two-ounce shots to dose out 10mg of THC per serving if you want something higher.
Boldt offers classic iced tea with an elevated twist in three delicious flavors: peach, black, and blueberry pomegranate. The beverages combine California cannabis and brewed southern iced tea to create a delightful drink steeped in tradition and sure to invoke favorable family memories (but you get to be high this time).
Artet offers the first non-alcoholic, cannabis-infused aperitif. Made with live resin, the blend is created in collaboration with Aster Farms, offering an original farm-to-table-cannabis beverage. The bottle comes with 75mg of THC and a complex flavor profile of Aster Farms’ “Honeydew Funk.” Artet is a must-have for moms and their families who like to taste their cannabis.
Levia offers cannabis-infused seltzers crafted with locally sourced flower, available in three varieties. “Celebrate” is a lemon-lime flavor with a hybrid blend, “Achieve” a raspberry-lime with a sativa blend, and “Dream” is jamberry flavored with an indica blend to help you relax or enjoy before bed. Each 12-ounce can of seltzer contains 5mg THC, and the onset of effects begins within 15 to 20 minutes.
Treat your mom to Herbacée (pronounced er-ba-cee), the first alcohol-free, cannabis-infused, French-inspired sparkling wine blend. If your mom already enjoys wine, especially rosé, there’s no better choice. It’s available in a classic bottle or a cute can size, both with 5mg of THC and CBD per serving.
