Los Angeles-based skateboard icon and popular cannabis soda announce collaboration on new can design and 10mg THC drink
LOS ANGELES–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Green Monké, maker of happy sodas for happy hour, today announced its collaboration with Briana King (she/they) on a custom can design for the cannabis brand’s new high-dose offering of its signature Tropical Citrus flavor. The 12 ounce cans deliver 10mg THC and 20mg CBD and come dressed in a sleek, purple-hued interpretation of Briana’s beloved Venice Beach Skatepark. Inspired by the waves of calm that come from skating by the beach, the new cannabis-infused soda delivers a sweet pineapple and orange taste with an ear-to-ear smile-making high. Briana King’s favorite new beverage is now available for pre-order in California from greenmonke.com and from select dispensaries starting July 11.
“Being hungover is boring, so cannabis helps me to relax without the need for alcohol,” said Briana King, acclaimed skateboarder, community organizer, model and actor. “I fell in love with drinking cannabis when I tried Green Monké’s Tropical Citrus soda, so partnering with the brand on a new can design featuring Venice Beach Skatepark combines two of my favorite vibes for humans to enjoy throughout California.”
Green Monké launched in California in May 2021 with its line-up of cannabis-infused happy sodas with nostalgic fruit flavors–Tropical Citrus, Orange Passionfruit and Mango Guava–each with a low-dose of 3mg THC and 6mg CBD. In order to mark the brand’s first year in California, Green Monké chose to take its signature Tropical Citrus flavor higher with 10mg THC and 20mg CBD wrapped in a collaborative can design from someone who embodies the brand’s commitment to judgment-free fun. Green Monké found it in Briana King and celebrates their passion for fostering an inclusive skating community that champions female and LGBTQ+ skaters.
