Indi Cola: It's such a perfect name for a cannabis-infused soda that when I spotted it last weekend at Key Peninsula Collective in Lakebay, my first reaction was surprise that the name hadn't already been taken. My second thought, after noticing the attractive, professional packaging and being told by budtender Sam that this was a "triple strength" drink, was "I gotta try this stuff."
There are quite a few cannabis-infused sodas and other drinkables in town; many of them taste quite good and work well, too; others are execrable and laughably weak. Among the good and the bad, one of the things I've noticed is that the cola flavor is really hard to get right. I've tried at least three cannabis colas now; none of them even approach the possibly unrealistic Holy Grail (Coca-Cola, neophyte) of cola drinks in taste, although some certainly make themselves worth your while, medication-wise.
Indi Cola was perhaps the best of the three weed colas I've tried over the past year of doing Incredible Medibles. While it still wasn't quite "there" in terms of taste, it was pleasant tasting enough to not make drinking the 10 ounces a chore. In fact, giving the Indi Cola its best shot at medicating me properly, I guzzled the thing down in less than five minutes.
