CBD Cocktails are Here!

The future of cannabis is here with CBD cocktails in the comfort of your home or local restaurant!

Anyone flocking down south for a much-needed escape from the Pacific Northwest gloom can have something else to look forward to besides the endless sunshine and celebrity sightings- cannabis cocktails!

Cheers from Gracias Madre in Weho Los Angeles.

That’s right! Now being featured under High Vibes of their drink menu, Gracias Madre, an organic Mexican  restaurant in LA’s West Hollywood neighborhood features three delectable and varying cannabis beverages. Before you get overly excited, these are purely CBD and alcohol cocktails, so no psychoactive THC properties, but the relaxation provided from the liquor and CBD was the perfect mix for mindful consumption.

Order of consumption recommended, if trying all three! (The order I consumed…)

The Sour T-iesel containing tequila blanco, lime, agave, mint, matcha, aquafaba & CBD oil.

Stoney Negroni

The Stoney Negroni was a mix of gin, carpano, turin aperitivo, port wine, orange oil & CBD oil.

Rolled Fashioned

The Rolled Fashioned contained mezcal anejo, bourbon, housemade sarsaparilla, aromatic bitters, and CBD oil.

My favorite part of this experience is what I believe it means for the future of this industry, and the cannabis culture as a whole. My hope is that more restaurants, bars and venues start featuring cocktails and foods containing cannabis, THC or CBD.

Some of the ingredients needed to make the magic happen at Gracias Madre.

What did I expect? To be honest, I had no clue. But I was excited to see what they offered; the presentation alone blew me away! From the matcha pot leaf on my first drink, to the orange peel with a ‘Puff, Puff, Pass’ description stamped into the zest on my second, or the mini churro in a dime bag attached to my third, each drink had a different terpene profile and experience associated with each sip.

The presentation for these drinks was super cool, especially loved the time put into stamping ‘Puff, Puff, Pass’ into orange zests put on all Stoney Negroni drinks.

My favorite drink was theSou r T-iesel that had a sharp, upfront flavor of lime, tequila and a slightly bitter taste of matcha sprinkled on top in the shape of a pot leaf. The flavors were creamy, a little chalky, in the most tasty way, with a warm burn afterwards, deep in my chest- I loved it!

My favorite drink was the Sour T-iesel, with a sharp lemon flavor balanced well by the matcha.

What does this mean for the future of cannabis?

We can only hope this marks the beginning of a new era, with cannabis restaurants, beverages and dinner parties popping up around the country, of course making their debuts in states where cannabis is already legalized.

Huge Thanks to the staff and chefs of Gracias Madre for making such an incredible dining experience, and cannabis cocktail journey!

CHEERS!
