Mandatory 420: The 10 Dankest Cannabis Drinks to Celebrate (As If It’s the Only Day People Like to Get Altered)
If you don’t know what 420 then this isn’t the article for you. But, if you don’t know its history, keep reading. The reason for 420’s existence is a bit of a mystery. The most likely story surrounds a group of friends called “the Waldos” who hung out at Oakland’s San Rafael High School in the ’70s. They would meet at (you guessed it) 4:20 to get high.
This, apparently, is why people all over the country set aside time to smoke a joint or nibble on an edible at 4:20 pm. This practice is heightened on April 20 because it’s the only day to enjoy 420 all day long.
In recent years, the cannabis beverage market has exploded. To celebrate this most epic of holidays, we decided to list 10 of the dankest cannabis drinks to celebrate with. Check them all out below.

Lagunitas IPA (and all of its other hoppy brews) is one of our favorite beers. So, it should come as no surprise that we love its cannabis-infused version. The best part? It comes in multiple varieties with THC doses ranging from 2mg all the way up to 10mg.

Part of the appeal of Nectr is the fact that on top of containing 10mg of THC per bottle, it’s also zero-calorie, no sugar, and vegan. It has less THC than many of the other brands on the market so it’s great for beginners.
Hard seltzer is taking the drinks world by storm. Oh Hi, instead of adding alcohol, added THC. It comes in a wide range of flavors with some containing CBD and other THC.
