A California maker of tonics and mixers will produce Green Monké, an international brand of cannabis-infused soda.

The Tinley Beverage Company Inc. announced that production will begin at its Long Beach facility in the first quarter of this year.

Green Monké was launched in North America last year by Toronto-based St. Peter’s Spirits following the brand’s success in the U.K.

The beverage became available in the European country in 2018 as Green Monkey, and was developed by Green Monkey Drinks Ltd.

Over at the U.K., the carbonated drink comes infused with cannabidiol or CBD.

Here in North America, the non-alcoholic beverage known as Green Monké features a 2:1 ratio of tetrahydrocannabinol or THC and CBD.

In a media release Wednesday (January 19), Tinley’s director Ted Zittell recalled that team members with his company and St. Peter’s Spirits have “crossed paths over decades”.

And so “it only makes sense that ‘Green Monké’ would work together with us now to manufacture their line-up of great-tasting sparkling sodas at Tinley’s Long Beach facility,” Zittell said.

The same release cited St. Peter’s Spirits founder and CEO Pat Gleeson saying that his company is thrilled to move its California Green Monké can production to Tinley’s Long Beach facility.

A website dedicated to the beverage describes the product as a “drink that can hang without the hangover”.

“With no alcohol and only 5g of sugar, Green Monké gives you the green light for fun without sacrificing your health or your Sunday morning,” the site explains.

It has three milligrams of THC for a “gentle lift-off”, and six milligrams of CBD to “keep you grounded”.

“Our 2:1 ratio lifts you up and keeps you grounded. It’s called balance, baby.”
