Cycling Frog Seltzer Is a Can of Pure Relaxation

I have high standards (pun intended), and they paid off handsomely when I found Cycling Frog.


I’m a self-confessed cannabis lightweight. I love the idea of a night in with friends and a strong edible, but the heavy THC never fails to go haywire on my brain—I ruin every game of Mafia and can’t seem to follow a conversation for hours. I’m also trying to lean less on alcohol for relaxation. That’s why I’ve been looking for the magic formula of THC and CBD for a great evening. I have high standards (pun intended), and they paid off handsomely when I found Cycling Frog.

The Black Currant THC Seltzer, which took home the gold at the 2024 LA Spirits “High Spirits” Awards, has 10 mg CBD, 5 mg delta-9 THC, and 60 calories per can (about half of a light beer). For me, it’s a perfectly dialed-in high, enough for a departure from daily anxieties. If a bong hit is a skydive, this feels like a l0w-level ski lift. (And thanks to the CBD, it feels like a masseuse is riding with you.) It tastes like a sip of Spindrift; there’s no cottonmouth aftertaste. I still feel like a human being, just a more delighted one—and still a threat at Catan.

I’ve also raved about the microdose-friendly mints and the higher-CBD gummies, each offering its own distinctively subtle high. See our list of recommendations below.
