Now that summer has finally arrived in Seattle, all I want to do is spend as much time as possible outside. One of my favorite things to do after work is relaxing on the deck and enjoying the early evening rays of the sun, especially when it involves a good book and my favorite cold beverage!

I’m not a regular alcohol drinker or weed smoker, but I am a soda fan. Actually, anything with bubbles like soda, kombucha, or the occasional glass of sparkling rose are good to me! I love carbonation. I was excited when Olala wanted to help make our summer nights a little more tropical and tasty.

Olala is an I-502 processor based right here in Washington State. Olala means “kissed by the sun” in Hawaiian; their cannabis-infused beverages and vape oils capture that aloha spirit that Hawaii is famous for and are the perfect drink for a chill night (or weekend) at home with my husband and our dog.

Whenever I have cannabis-infused soda, two questions come to mind: 1) How potent is it? And 2) Can I taste the weed? No, I don’t taste the weed when I drink Olala. I also like that they offer their sodas in three different potency levels (10, 50, or 100mg per 9oz. bottle.) I can relax with a bottle and not worry about something stronger than I’m used to!

I appreciate Olala’s commitment to all-natural ingredients and using pure cane sugar (versus high-fructose corn syrup) to sweeten their beverages. They’re also committed to full carbonation; their custom bottles are designed in a way that keeps carbonation at higher levels than your favorite soda! I’m a big fan of the orange cream soda, and I’m also partial to the fruit punch soda and the pineapple strawberry sparkling water.

Thanks, Olala for the perfect chill summer drinks! I found Olala at Have a Heart in Belltown (the old See Sound Lounge), but there’s a map of Olala retailers on their website. Check out The Lab on Olala's website or follow Olala on Instagram for a look inside their CO2-extracted cannabis process and to see where you can get their full line of beverages in Seattle and beyond.
