Enjoy a cold can as is or use our sodas and syrups in cocktails and non-alcoholic drinks. We also have some cooking suggestions on our recipe page!

The natural ingredients make it easy to keep things simple and tasty so you can focus on the fun and not the fuss.

To reduce waste, we recommend using our syrups with a carbonated soda machine.

All of our simple syrups are made with whole ingredients and we use  brew bags (mesh bags) while we cook the syrup to keep the chunks of all natural goodness like mango chunks, dried lavender and ground spices out of the finished bottle. Occasionally itty pieces make it through the bag and you will find them in the syrup.

However in our vanilla bean syrup, you will always see specks of vanilla bean. The more the better! 

Always give the bottle a good shake before use to mix it up!

Hemp Extract or CBD is cannabidiol, which is one of the several cannabinoids, or chemical compounds found in cannabis and hemp plants. The most famous cannabinoid is tetrahydrocannabinol or THC, which is the main psychoactive component in marijuana. Cannabinoids from the hemp plant are non-psychoactive, meaning CBD works on the body without causing the same type of intoxication as THC.

CBD is still being studied due to heavy government regulations that were just lifted in 2018 (thanks to the Farm Bill), so there are no actual claims that can be made from the Food and Drug Administration. However, CBD has been said to reduce anxiety, mood-related symptoms, pain, and insomnia. We too won’t make actual claims, but we believe enough in the natural effects of the plant to make a beverage out of it. 🙂

There is 15 mg of full-spectrum CBD  in each serving of both CBD Cans and CBD Simple Syrups.

Backyard CBD beverages are made with cannabidiol which is a non-psychoactive compound from the hemp plant containing less than .3% thc, the psychoactive component in the cannabis plant.

The Farm Bill of 2018 federally legalized hemp and CBD, although the state law is relevant and also varies.

We suggest drinking our beverages whenever you feel like it — enjoying a Saturday night party with friends, a late afternoon treat at the office, after a long day at work, or after a hike or day on the slopes. Our all natural, simple syrups and sodas are perfect for everyday use or special occasions.

CBD is commonly used to relieve symptoms of anxiety, including insomnia. Some studies have shown that CBD has anti-inflammatory properties and relief from chronic pain, like arthritis. This has not been proven by the FDA or WHO and more research and testing is necessary. The FDA has recently approved a CBD-based drug for treating epileptic seizures.
