Cann Social Tonics Gains $5m in Funding

CBD Infused Drink

Los Angeles-based cannabis-infused drink producer, Cann Social Tonics, announced its successful acquisition of $5 million investment funding. The funding round was spearheaded by Imaginary and JM10, an early-stage investment firm and marijuana company, respectively.

Cann’s beverages include 4 milligrams of CBD and 2 milligrams of THC. Unlike beer and other alcoholic drinks, this market offering is geared towards people who want to enhance socialization without the hangover, notes Forbes.

In a statement, the drink is said to be “uniquely designed to be approachable even for someone who has never previously considered cannabis as a part of their social lives – and appealing to that consumer is what it takes for a product to break the ‘stoner’ stigma and cross over into the mainstream,” shares co-founder Luke Anderson.

As of writing, the continued success of Cann is astonishing, with the brand just having sold 150,000 of its beverages.

Both Anderson and fellow co-founder Jake Bullock shared that the initial public response toward their products is astounding, especially having sold out a couple of times. Despite their increasing popularity with target audiences, Tech Crunch reports that there are still regulatory and supply chain challenges that stand in the way.

JM10’s investment in the cannabis-infused company allows it to expand its strong cannabis portfolio, with the likes of Lord Jones in its ranks. Founding partner JM10 Gregory Thomaier said, “Cann is unique in that its flavor profiles, ingredient purity and smokeless format sets the brand apart not only within the cannabis space, but also the beverage industry as a whole. We feel beverages like Cann provide the perfect product for the cannabis-curious.”

Meanwhile, Forbes reports that Cann is Imaginary’s first foray into marijuana investment markets and opportunities. Prior to this cannabis-infused drink maker, Imaginary only reportedly invested in renowned direct to consumer brands, including Daily Harvest, Everlane, Glossier, Reformation, and Kim Kardashian-West’s Skims.

According to Forbes, the $5 million seed investment round is slated to boost the growth of Cann’s cannabis-infused social tonic throughout different parts of California. In addition, the business is expected to bring its offerings to other states this 2020, as well.

Cann Social Tonics also plans to use its funding toward growing its business in new legal markets. Moreover, the brand intends to intensify is production capacity, as well as investing in product development to meet the demands of its existing pool of clients and potential customers.

Cannabis Kitchen Essentials to Have This Holiday Season

Now that the holiday season is here, parties and gatherings may have started to fill your social events calendar. In fact, these get-togethers may already be finding their way to your refrigerator. Filled to the brim, your fridge may not just be the ones taking in more goods (and baggage) they can handle.

While social gatherings serve as a time for friends and family to catch up on one another, these may be more stressful for cooks and chefs who need to cater to everyone’s discerning palate. Thankfully, there are more cannabidiol-based goodies that help these hardworking individuals relax. Even their guests are more than welcome to partake of these cannabis kitchen essentials this holiday season.

Why Use Cannabidiol?

Studies show that cannabidiol or CBD has potent properties that help soothe inflammation and reduce pain. It can also treat insomnia, address stress and anxiety, as well as treat certain skin conditions.

Because of the numerous benefits attached to this creation, adding to any kitchen, yours included, would certainly be a game-changer. Apart from introducing you to a host of possibilities in the culinary realm, these could also help you relax and de-stress – even while you’re cooking a huge batch of food for your gathering.

Must-Have Cannabis Kitchen Essentials

CBD Oil for Just About Anything

What makes CBD oil so easy and attractive to use for just about anything and everything – yes, even sweets and baked goods. Because of its versatility, this ingredient makes for a good addition to all types of meals. From your healthy salad dressings for your appetizers to drizzling over your soups, this wonderful kitchen essential will bring an earthier flavor that will ground your dishes.

If you are adventurous enough, you may also use drops of CBD oil into your cocktails and other beverages.

Cannabutter for Baking, Sautéing, and Finishing Dishes

A complementary ingredient, cannabutter is equally versatile and useful as its CBD oil counterpart. You can use it to infuse your dishes and use it as a base for sautéing vegetables, baking and roasting food for a deeper flavor, or for adding something extra to any meal. Even using a pat of this cannabutter on your toast or your cacio e pepe dinner will make a world of difference. Trust us.

CBD Edibles for Snacking Woes

Cooking for guests can take a toll on anyone. After all, with many dishes to prepare throughout the occasion, you might find yourself slaving over the kitchen for the whole day. If this is the case, your energy levels may become depleted over time, leaving you hungry.

Thankfully, there are CBD gummies and edibles available on the market. Pop one (or two or three) into your mouth and allow its invigorating properties to bring you back to your element. If gummies are not your thing, you can also opt for the more traditional food products such as brownies and chocolates. Not to mention, these can also double as dessert for your visitors.

Cannabis Hand Wash for Rinsing

After taking on the day’s tasks and making everything from scratch, it is high time you wash the day’s grime with a relaxing and soothing cannabis-infused hand wash. This way, you can rest your tired hands and eliminate any unwanted smells. Malin+Goetz makes a heavenly scented cleansing gel that’s meant to hydrate your skin after a hard day’s work.

Conclusion

Best Cannabis Recipes To Serve This Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving Turkey

Make Thanksgiving extra special this year by serving the most delightful dishes infused with CBD oil. The added ingredient will enhance meals, making the food experience a bliss. Because cannabis heightens the sensory receptors, everything tastes better with a hint of umami.

If you worry about the side effects, note that with an adequate amount of cannabidiol oil, everything will turn out great. You can serve Turkey with CBD oil for added buttery taste minus the greasiness. Desserts can also have this exciting ingredient for sweet and flavorful cakes, cupcakes, or chocolates.

Key Cannabis Ingredients

Aside from the cannabis oil, you also need cannabutter for making desserts and adding texture and flavor to the turkey. Cannabutter can be homemade, and some dispensaries have this specialty butter. Its only difference with the normal butter is that added cannabis oil.

For homemade cannabutter recipe, you can mix 1 cup of butter with 1 cup of ground, decarboxylated cannabis, about 10 grams. Slow cook the mixture for two to three hours then cool off before using.

Tips For Cooking on Thanksgiving With CBD Oil

Dosing is a crucial factor when cooking with cannabidiol oil. Applying a few drops into the recipe is already enough. Overdosing can only happen if you will put more oil into the recipe. Remember, if you plan to put CBD to entrée, appetizers, and desserts, you need to balance out the dosing to avoid side effects like lightheadedness, dry mouth, and change in appetite.

The best thing to do is to take it easy on the oil, distribute it to other meals and you are good to go. Additionally, you need to find a good CBD product supplier to get the desired results.

5. Add the cooked macaroni and lobster. Stir evenly and place in gratin dishes.

6. Melt butter and cheese with bread crumbs then bake for 35 minutes.

7. Cool then serve.

 

CBD Chocolate Pistachio Bar

To cap off the lunch or dinner, serve a chocolate bar embedded with pistachio nuts. It is a quick bite and definitely delicious with a drizzle of salt.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup hemp chocolates with coconut oil
  • ½ cup butter
  • 2 tablespoons coconut flour
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 4 tablespoons pistachio nuts, chopped
