Happi is launching its cannabis-infused seltzers in the Lone Star state in partnership with Bayou City Hemp Company and 8th Wonder Brewery, which will formulate, manufacture and package Happi locally.
Distributed by Flood Independent Distributors, consumers can find Happi in bars, restaurants, liquor stores and other retail locations throughout the state by early summer.
"They say everything is bigger in Texas, and this launch is no different,” said Lisa Hurwitz, president and co-founder of Happi. “It's a huge milestone for Happi to become the first national cannabis beverage brand in Texas. Collaborating with the team at 8th Wonder and Bayou City to locally produce Happi has really made us feel at home here."
Happi is bringing its best-selling flavors to Texas, including Glow and Nightcap, made with minor cannabinoids and reishi and lion's mane mushroom. Glow helps consumers find clarity and focus, and comes in a Blood Orange Ginger flavor. Nightcap promotes more restful slumber, and is available in a Turkish Apple Tea flavor.
Founded in 2021, Happi got its start on dispensary shelves in Michigan and quickly expanded to additional states. In 2023, the brand launched hemp-derived direct-to-consumer sales online with shipping to 32 states.
"Happi is the perfect addition to our portfolio, including their functional beverages, which are a first for Texas,” said Joel Canada, VP of sales, Bayou City Hemp Company. “We think Texans are really going to love these infused seltzers and their light buzz. We're really looking forward to introducing cannabis-infused options like Happi to Texas."
