It feels like just yesterday we were welcoming the beginning of July and the rare warm days we get here in Ontario. Then again, time has taken on a different meaning since the start of COVID, with many of us still working out of our home offices (or otherwise-improvised work stations).
On a positive note, that makes this holiday weekend even more welcomed.
While we can’t celebrate the Civic Holiday like we usually would — large barbeques with friends, festivals in the park, and the like — that doesn’t mean we can’t still have a good time in small get-togethers with our close family, friends, roommates, or otherwise-constituted COVID pods.
What We’re Drinking This Weekend
While wine and beer might make the traditional celebratory enhancers to a cook-out or festival in North America, Canadians are increasingly bringing cannabis edibles, vapes, beverages, and of course, pre-rolls, to social events. Cannabis-infused beverages, in particular, which offer precise dosing and oh-so-subtle means of ingestion, make the perfect Civic Holiday weekend pairing for anyone interested in trying something new.
The most popular drink this summer, by far, has been Houseplant’s Grapefruit Sparkling Water. Houseplant, you might recall, is the cannabis brand started last year by Canada’s very own comedy screenwriting duo Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg in partnership with Canopy Growth. Think of Houseplant Grapefruit like an off-the-clock La Croix. Besides being completely on-trend for this summer of sparkling water everything, Houseplant’s fizzy concoction features all-natural grapefruit flavour combined with 2.5mg of THC. The product is made from 100% cannabis sativa, the strain of cannabis traditionally thought to encourage increased energy, alertness, and creativity, perfect for your small, social-distanced get-togethers.
