8th Wonder Brewery and Bayou City Hemp Co. have partnered with Washington Ho – Houston entrepreneur and star of “House of Ho” on Max – and lawyer and politician Tony Buzbee on HoBuzz, a non-alcoholic, delta-8-THC seltzer.
Ho, who openly struggles with alcohol addiction in Season 1 of “House of Ho,” was inspired to create a non-alcoholic beverage to promote “happy, healthy and positive vibes” without the after effects of drinking.
“One of my biggest struggles with being sober was that the products in the marketplace did not fit my lifestyle,” Ho said. “As a father and husband, while being an entrepreneur where social networking is required to be successful, I believe this product allows me to own my truth, that I am just like many Americans struggling with alcohol while trying to maintain the fun in sobriety. Through researching and developing this product, I found that I could still be myself without the negative side effects of alcohol. I’ve realized I don’t need alcohol or medication to be me, and with HoBuzz, I can be my best self while still having fun. I can’t wait to share this with the world.”
Each 12-oz. can of HoBuzz is infused with 10 mg of nano-emulsified, hemp-derived delta-8-THC. HoBuzz’s debut offerings include two flavors developed by the co-founders. Ho’s “The Washington” is a crisp black cherry beverage with organic sugar and all-natural flavors. It contains 29 calories per can. It was inspired by the story of George Washington, Ho’s namesake and the cherry tree. Buzbee’s “The Patriot” is a hibiscus infusion with zero calories and zero sugar. It’s designed to be enjoyed by itself or as a mixer. Additional flavors will be released based on market demand.
HoBuzz is available now in 6-packs and will debut in Houston at the 8th Wonder taproom and other select locations beginning Monday, Sept. 4.
In June, Bayou City Hemp Company acquired 8th Wonder Brewery, Distillery and Cannabis, following a series of collaborations to create non-alcoholic THC beverages for Texas consumers.
