Tropical Bliss

These cocktail-like cans from the Collective Project—an offshoot of Collective Arts Brewing—are undeniably refreshing. Our favourite is the blood orange, yuzu and vanilla flavour, which is zippy, zesty and slightly bitter—like a melted creamsicle, with a maxed-out measure of THC, and equal parts CBD. 10 mg THC, 10 mg CBD. $9.45, collectiveproject.ca

Berry Nice

Impromptu’s CBD Goji Grapefruit Kombucha marries fizzy probiotic tea with a dash of THC, and a hefty dose of CBD. Not only is the kombucha good for gut health, but this one might even help keep those mellow, post-yoga vibes going all day. 2 mg THC, 20 mg CBD. $9.40, ocs.ca

Mini But Mighty

To get that droopy-eyelid effect without having to roll a joint or (gasp) break out a bong, XMG’s mind-massaging beverages are packed to the brim with THC and tropical flavours. The mango-pineapple can’t totally mask that marijuana musk, but at this potency, you’re here for the buzz first and foremost. Avoid operating heavy machinery. 10 mg THC. $9.45, ocs.ca

Summertime Slammer

Booze-spiked seltzers were all the rage last summer, so we knew a cannabis-spiked option would follow soon. Versus’s Key Lime Rapid Seltzer is White Claw meets sticky green—crispy and crushable to quickly achieve dockside bliss. Pour over ice with some fresh mint to balance out the slight cannabis funk. 10 mg THC, <1 mg CBD. $5.95, ocs.ca

Near Beer

Mollo’s lager-like sippers are as close as drinkable cannabis gets to that cold-beer-on-a-hot-day feeling.

Sugar and Spice

Like a greener alternative to a trusty highball, Tweed’s Bakerstreet & Ginger ditches the spirits for a dash of one of its signature cannabis strains, blended with a big splash of sweet ginger and light carbonation.

Hot Shot

There really is a cannabis-spiked beverage for every occasion—even après-ski. Malahat Mountain Cannabis Co.’s THC-packed hot chocolate powder does a swell job of soothing the pains of a day on the slopes.
