The All Natural, CBD-Infused Sparkling Water
Hilary McCain, Founder & CEO of Sweet Reason
I live in Toronto and work (mostly) in New York. I work a lot, so when I'm not working, I like to really turn off by getting outdoors or cooking for friends. I love hiking, running, pilates, reading, and art / design. And I am completely obsessed with food. I'm inspired by things I read and people I meet.
At Sweet Reason, we believe that cannabis is a natural friend of human happiness, and our intention is to make it simpler than ever for people to access the benefits of the plant without reservations. We create beverages that help people pursue a life well-lived.
I became obsessed with the idea that one day we would all replace our glass of wine or beer with a cannabis beverage. When I discovered CBD and all of its health benefits, I was hooked. Like most of our generation, I have bouts of anxiety if I'm stressed, working too much, sleeping too little, drinking too much coffee, not working out … or sometimes for no reason at all. When I feel anxious, CBD keeps me calm and focused. Sweet Reason helps me feel balanced.
Sweet Reason uses CO2-extracted CBD from an organic hemp farm in Colorado. We are obsessed with quality, because we created these beverages with ourselves in mind. We use no sugar or sweeteners and simple ingredients, because we like to keep it healthy. Oh, and Sweet Reason happens to be women-owned and operated (we're a team of five women) - which is pretty rare in the beverage industry!
I love all three of our flavors - Grapefruit, Cucumber Mint and Strawberry Lavender. I could never choose a favorite; it would be like choosing your favorite child! I have Cucumber Mint when I was something crisp and refreshing, Strawberry Lavender when I want something a little special, and Grapefruit when I want something classic.
We use only natural ingredients, our glass bottle is 100% recyclable, and we donate 1% of sales to mental health organizations.
