Riding Hi

Durango’s Oh Hi Beverages is breaking out the champagne glasses. The locally
made THC-infused seltzers took home first place in the edibles category for their pomegranate flavor at the 2019 High Times Cannabis Cup, held Nov. 21 in Denver. The Cannabis Cup’s edibles category is the largest category in the competition.

This fruity bubbly water, which is enhanced with 10mg THC, is carb-friendly as well, with only 20 calories and 5 grams of sugar per can. The pomegranate is the top-selling of Oh Hi’s line, which also includes lemon lime, grapefruit and ginger basil lime.

Founded in 2018, Oh Hi was the first to market a canned THC seltzer in Colorado. It was the brainchild of Aaron Miles and Jonny Radding, co-owners of Durango Organics, and Matt Vincent, co-owner of Ska Brewing and founder of Ska Fabrication.

Coincidentally, the Cannabis Cup recognition came the same week that Oh Hi began canning its CBD seltzers, which come in all the same flavors. The drinkables can be bought at dispensaries across town and Colorado. For a location near you, go to: ohhibev.com/storelocator.
