Rasta Ale: Ganja Ginger Drink Is Good For What 'Ales' You

It turns out the distinctively herbal taste of marijuana and the sparklingly fresh taste of ginger ale go quite swimmingly together.

?Cannabis infused drinkables, including sodas, are an increasingly crowded market in Seattle, with a wide range of brand names, flavors, and potencies available. One of the absolute best such product lines available in the Puget Sound area is that of Puffless Productions. Their friendly, red-eyed dragon logo -- now wearing a chef's hat, since Puffless also does medibles -- has been a reliable guarantor of quality.

Puffless still has plenty to be proud of with its new Rasta Ale, a ginger ale infused with cannabis. It turns out the distinctively herbal taste of marijuana and the sparklingly fresh taste of ginger ale go quite swimmingly together.


In fact, this stuff is in serious contention for the best cannabis infused drink I've ever had.

We last visited with Puffless back in September, when we tried their low-carbonation Puffless Cola, and came away with a positive impression. But this time around, Jeremy, the innovator behind the company, has outdone himself with a delicious, ready-for-prime-time cannabis beverage.

Besides a line of cannabis-infused drinkables which also includes Granny Puff (green apple flavored soda) and Pufflessade Orange Electrolyte Drink (think Orange Gatorade with ganja in it), Puffless also makes excellent Milk Chocolate Toke Bars and Peanut Butter Bars, each containing 0.3 grams of hashish.

Oh, and on the subject of dosage? Puffless puts a creditable 0.6 grams of cannabis per soda in their drinkables -- let's hear it for adequate amounts! The company receives major additional points for including the exact amount of cannabis on each of their medibles and drinkables -- and, crucially, for including a "Born On" date on each label, so that you know exactly how fresh the product is. The sodas are usually priced at $7 to $10 apiece, depending where you get 'em.

The innovative Jeremy has also developed a palatable Hash Tea, an almost unsweetened drink infused at the rate of 2 grams of hash per gallon. (Each gallon also contains half an ounce of honey and a splash of lemon.)

Every product I've seen from Puffless Productions has the signs of obvious intelligent thought, directed effort and intentionality. Kudos for quality!

Puffless Productions' impressive line of products is available at many of the finer medical marijuana collective gardens in Seattle (you'll need a Washington medical marijuana authorization).
