If you’ve been curious about cannabis beverages, you should get acquainted with Sprig.
The Orange County-based company was founded in 2015 due to the founders’ disdain for edibles’ extremely inconsistent potency levels and overly strong weed flavor. They formulate its beverages with a focus on consistency, so customers know exactly what to expect (in terms of both taste and impact) with each sip.
But first, what was the product that started it all? That would be the Citrus Original flavor, which is naturally sweetened with cane sugar and is preservative-free. It’s also infused with 10 mg of THC! Serve this one cold and expect a high that’s uplifting and energetic—a social buzz that’s good if you’re out doing an activity with friends.
Want to make a CBD/THC-infused cocktail with Sprig’s Citrus Original? Try this concoction that Sprig created in collaboration with @sousweed the next time you're making cannabis drinks.
5 cilantro leaves, plus sprigs for garnish
1 small jalapeño, halved
1 orange, juiced
1 lime, juiced
1⁄2 grapefruit, juiced
1 can Sprig CBD or THC-Infused Sparkling Citrus Soda
In a cocktail shaker, muddle cilantro leaves and 1⁄2 a jalapeño.
Add ice, citrus juice, and shake well.
Double strain into two ice-filled glasses and fill the rest of the glass up with Sprig CBD or THC-Infused Sparkling Citrus Soda.
Garnish with the remaining jalapeño and sprigs of cilantro.
Hot tip: If for some reason someone doesn't finish their can, make Sprig ice cubes with the leftovers. Find Sprig at a Medmen marijuana dispensary near you.
