’Tis the season for too many holiday to-dos Zentopia’s line of specialty hemp-infused sparkling beverages will keep you hydrated and refreshed while staying clear-headed.

With founders that include beer-making experts from 10 Barrel, Hop Valley, and Cascade Brewing, Oregon-based Zentopia’s collective of skilled brewers uses locally grown hemp and Cascade Mountain water to create specialty-flavored drinks with 50mg of CBD, which, for some, can produce a calming, relaxing effect. What it doesn’t have is sugar or THC, or the psychoactive “high” effects.

Zentopia has a “Chill” line, featuring summery fruits such as mango, watermelon, and pineapple, and then a “Boost” line with caffeinated black tea, in flavors such as peach and raspberry, for those wanting more of a pick-me-up, minus the sugar rush of typical energy beverages. Zentopia’s makers recommend enjoying the drinks on their own, or as a mixer in cocktails to add effervescence and flavor.

Available in stores or for purchase online.
