Colorado companies Left Hand Brewing and WAAYB Organics are launching Present CBD-Infused Sparkling Water featuring all-organic ingredients in three initial flavors: natural, lemon-lime and blood orange.
Present is tended from seed to shelf in Northern Colorado and will be available for online ordering on Aug. 12.
Present features 20mg of full-spectrum CBD distillate from hemp grown at WAAYB’s USDA Certified Organic family farm in Northern Colorado.
“We oversee the entire process from putting seeds into soil, to cultivation, harvesting, extraction and distillation,” said Scott Cusack, CEO. “We firmly believe this is the only way to create CBD products our customers can trust.”
Left Hand Brewing will take its 25 years of knowledge from the beer industry and apply it to the growing CBD beverage industry with Present.
“At Left Hand, we always strive to put the best beverages possible out in the market; we’re committed to what’s best for beer and what’s best for the community,” said Eric Wallace, co-founder and president. “We look forward to offering an organic, zero-calorie option that’s free from artificial ingredients, additives or adaptogens and offers the same high standards and integrity of our beers.”
WAAYB’s co-founder Anson Mitchell said his father started farming the WAAYB farmland in the 1980s and has visited the Left Hand taproom since they opened in 1994.
“The idea for an organic CBD beverage started while sharing some beers with Eric Wallace and it’s incredible to see that conversation evolve into a reality that consumers all over the country will enjoy,” Mitchell said.
The Present team also includes Chris Lennert, Left Hand’s COO, as GM, and Taylor Sarachek as brand manager, whose experience includes more than 10 years in the beverage industry.
“WAAYB Organic’s dedication to growing the highest quality, organic hemp paired with their expertise in distributing CBD products for more than two years was a perfect fit for the beverage experience we have at Left Hand Brewing,” Lennert said.
Present also will be available in select Colorado retail locations later this summer.
