Cann Social Tonics Are Changing the Game, and We Proved It
This past summer has, for the most part, been a social one一but it can get to be a draining process of drinking and waking up hungover each and every weekend. So, we decided to try something new…without cutting out all the fun, obviously. Cann Social Tonics, if you haven’t already seen scrolling on your IG feed, is the future of drinking一and we’re here for it. With 2mg THC and 4mg CBD per 7.5-ounce can, you get a light, feel-good buzz without any hangover the next morning (and without feeling like you’re getting blasted off to another planet). Each Cann is between 30-35 calories and made up of five natural ingredients, meaning the heavy beers and sugary cocktails won’t be missed. Whether you’ve had a long day at work and need something to take the edge off or you still want to be social with a (non-alcoholic) drink in hand, we’re here to introduce you to your new favorite beverage. Cannabis-Infused Drinks
We completely cut out alcohol for two weeks and instead turned to Cann Social Tonics to do these seven Orange County activities high. Here’s how it went.
1 | Lounging Poolside at a Brewery
After I already committed to a non-alcohol week, the first stop my friends wanted to make was, of course, a brewery. So before they picked me up, I had a lemon lavender Cann and still had an ideal happy buzz throughout the afternoon. We lounged by the trendy Leisuretown pool (Yes, it’s free! Call ahead to reserve and simply pay a $20 holding fee.) that had major Palm Springs vibes, and I ordered The Truck Stop Munchwrap to cure my hunger. Who knew I wouldn’t miss having a beer, even at a brewery?!

2 | Taking a Trapeze Yoga Class
Trying out a new workout class each week has been a hobby for a while now, and this week, I decided to have some fun with it. Good Moodra Yoga offers both trapeze and mat yoga classes. I went all-in and drank a Grapefruit Rosemary Cann before attending a trapeze class. Overall, it was a splendid experience, and my body felt stretched, strong and relaxed all at the same time.

3 | Checking Out the Cultural and Creative Complex
Whether you’re looking for a change of pace after work or a weekend activity with friends, Compound, a cultural sanctuary in Long Beach, is the place to go. Among the art exhibits, open spaces and wellness events, this space is an innovative breath of fresh air. I stopped by on a Sunday after sipping a Cann to experience the multi-sensory interactive experience, Tidepools. I felt inspired and mesmerized, as I took in the beautiful art. I got home and decided to have another Cann because…why not? And upon waking up Monday morning, I had absolutely no hangover.

4 | Mid-morning Munchies Minus the Meat
This morning we used CANN without the can. Lemon Lavender Roadies provide an on the go option that can be mixed into any drink. I added this one to my freshly brewed iced tea I had made that morning, picked up a Good Morning Sammie (just egg, sausage, cheddar, tempeh bacon and smashed tots) from Veg’d, the new plant based restaurant in Costa Mesa. I drove to Newport beach, found a nice quiet place to sit, drank my tea, contemplated my life and watched the waves as I ate my sammie. It was going to be a good day.

5 | Tripping Out at This Immersive, Magical Cafe
6 | Attending the Immersive Van Gogh Experience
For a truly trippy experience, my friends and I headed to the Anaheim Convention Center to witness the Beyond Van Gogh. And let’s just say, it lived up to the hype. We walked through 500,000 cubic feet of magnificent projections that animate Vincent van Gogh’s most treasured works of art. The exhibit was entrancing with its moving images that highlight detail and color, offering an inside look into the mind of the renowned artistic genius. To get the most out of this astonishing and imaginative experience, pack a few Canns to sip on and watch as the brush strokes come to life.
