Our most popular line of beverages, the Keef brand offers sodas and sparkling water in 12oz bottles. Keef Classic Sodas taste just like a regular soda but pack 10mg of THC in each serving. Root beer lovers are wild about the Bubba Kush Root Beer, telling us it tastes so delicious they often forget it’s not a regular root beer. Orange soda devotees won’t be disappointed with Orange Kush.
Be the Hero
Protip: use vanilla ice cream or froyo to make Bubba Kush Root Beer Floats. Some of the HIGHLY staff got creative over the holidays and experimented with Orange Kush Floats…. they tasted just like a creamsicle.

All HIGHLY stores stock Countdown’s 25mg THC seltzer in Berry Force and Orange Blast. Packaged in convenient 8.4oz cans, these drinks are ready to be thrown into the cooler or backpack for your next adventure.
Also known as “Nano” or “Rapid Onset,” these terms specifically refer to edible cannabis products that have gone through the chemical process of Nano Emulsification, resulting in the effects being felt much faster than traditional edibles. THC is a fat-soluble chemical and normally does not break down in water: it needs to be processed through the liver for the effects to be felt, which is why many people don’t feel the “high” of an edible until a few hours after consumption. But the process of Nano Emulsification breaks down THC chemicals to a microscopic level, allowing them to be suspended in an emulsion – basically tricking the THC particles into acting like water-soluble cannabinoids. Our bodies can quickly absorb water-soluble cannabinoids directly into the bloodstream, resulting in the effects being felt in as little as 15 minutes. This has been a game changer for the creation of cannabis infused beverages and other fast-acting consumables.
