BEVERAGES BATTLE FOR POSITION

Among REC beverages, there are those produced as-is by LPs (such as Canopy’s Houndstooth & Soda), and those “infused” by adding water-soluble cannibinoids. The latter category includes The Green Organic Dutchman‘s popular powder “infusers,” the Veryvell line of concentrated cannabinoid drops from Molson Coors and Hexo‘s joint venture Truss Beverages.

Because beverages with 2mg THC per can have little effect on those with higher tolerances, some REC stores recommend consumers add additional THC. Beyond making REC beverages stronger, these water-soluble concentrates are usually significantly cheaper.
