Sweet Justice supposedly brings a “ray of tangy sunshine” with their cannabis infused beverage Pacific Island Punch. Each can of Sweet Justice Pacific Island Punch contains 10 mg of THC, 5 mg of CBD and a flavour combination that includes lime, sour orange, passion fruit, and peach all packed into a tall 355 mL can which is currently sold for $7.99.
I cracked open the top of the can not really knowing what to expect in terms of aroma. The smell was strong and reminded me of a strong citrus, most likely from the sweet lime and sour orange. However I could also detect a zesty and fruity undertone that had a tropical element.
Coming in a 355 mL bright orange aluminium tall can there was a significant amount of details printed on the outside that included calorie information, ingredients and THC/CBD dosage. The liquid itself was a bright orange colour that reminded me of Orange Crush or Fanta as there was a ton of carbonation bubbles.
In terms of flavour profile, this beverage tasted like a zesty peach ring candy that has been liquefied with lots of carbonation. Due to the strong peach ring taste and the carbonation, there was little to no cannabis aftertaste which was a big plus. Sweet Justice knows how to cater to customers’ flavour profiles regarding soda when comparing this to their Cherry Cola.
This 355 mL can has 10 mg of THC which is balanced with 5 mg of CBD meaning the high can be good but not overwhelming and really is targeted at new or infrequent users. Individuals with a high tolerance level will need to pick up many of these drinks to feel the effects of which clearly isn’t realistic at $7.99 per can. Perhaps Sweet Justice should consider lowering the price point to appeal to entry level consumers which would encourage more sales.
