Drink Different.

Cannabis is Shaking Up the Beverage Industry

THC- AND CBD-infused beverages are the next wave of social drinks as health-conscious consumers reduce their alcohol consumption. HAI offers consumers a safe, low-dose product with THC effects that equate to a single glass of wine or bottle of beer. Our concentrate is like a neutral spirit that beverage manufacturers can add to their most popular products.

Why Hai?

Science-Driven for Safe Consumption

Our mission is to become the cannabis-infused beverage most trusted by consumers, industry, and regulators.

Predictable Precision Dose

Infuses the beverage with a low, 1.4 mg dose of THC for a mild buzz, equivalent to a glass of wine or a single beer.

Bio-Availability

It’s quickly absorbed by the bloodstream, so effects are felt quickly, as with alcohol. Some beverages and edibles are absorbed too gradually, so consumers make the mistake of over-consuming while they wait for the THC to kick in.

The Sociable, Healthy Choice

Social drinkers can safely keep pace with friends who are consuming wine or beer, matching drink for drink. It’s carb-free, calorie-free, doesn’t harm your liver, and won’t give you a hangover.

Like a Neutral Spirit

The concentrate imparts no flavour, aroma, or colour of its own. Versatile enough to infuse the market’s most popular recipes without altering taste or appearance.

Turnkey

We manage formulation and bottling under our own license and require little regulatory input from partners. We are ready for commercial production now and currently in discussions with prospective licensees.

Technology Available in CBD Formulation

Our highly predictable, bio-available concentrate is also available in a CBD formulation which can be used to infuse a range of wellness and therapeutic beverage applications.

PRECISION

2 droplets in 355ml of liquid = 1.4 mg of THC, the equivalent to one beer or wine

NEUTRAL INGREDIENT

HAI’s water-soluble concentrate can be added to any beverage without impacting flavour, aroma, or colour.

Precision Dosage

Social Drinking with No Social Stigma

HAI blends in. Consumers can raise a glass with friends and family, without raising eyebrows. The product looks, smells, tastes, and performs like any other social drink.

SESSIONABLE

Match beer or wine-drinking friends, drink for drink.

The Hai Story

Driven by Demand for Safe Consumption

From the beginning, our mission was to make cannabis consumption safe. Beverage-industry veterans Bruce Clark and Chris Hoffmeister happened to be in the Gulf Islands, enjoying social drinks (wine from a box) and talking about how new cannabis legislation could disrupt the market.

They weren’t marijuana enthusiasts themselves, but knew that THC products, including beverages, would soon be available. As parents, they wanted to create a product that would prioritize safety. That meant a low dose that would be highly bio-available. With effects felt quickly, as with alcohol, consumers would be unlikely to ingest too much. It meant a precision product, where the infusion would be predictable every time, regardless of the beverage brand chosen. After 3 years of collaborating with scientists and other beverage professionals, HAI is that mission brought to reality.
