Cannabis Beverage Bar Opens in South Carolina

August 15, 2023 · Ganjapreneur

A bar specializing in nonalcoholic, cannabis-infused cocktails opened last week on South Carolina’s James Island, WCBD reports. The ‘Cannabis Dry Bar’ is within the Charleston Hemp Collective and is in partnership with High Rise Beverages.

Co-owner Chris Long told WCBD that he quit drinking alcohol six years ago and after that, “wasn’t able to have some of the social…enjoyment” he had when going to bars.

High Rise Beverage Founder Matt Skinner told BevNet in March that the goal of the dry bar is “to create a more elevated experience for those seeking nonalcoholic alternatives.”

The bar serves a variety of spirit-free cocktails, combining natural ingredients with the customer’s choice of CBDdelta-8 THC, or delta-9 THC. Patrons can also add THC-infused gummies to their order.

Skinner described the bar to Eater as “cannabis themed” but “a wellness bar.”

“We’re going through a big NA movement right now,” Skinner said. “A lot of Generation Z isn’t drinking anymore, and we are getting more and more educated on the medicinal benefits of the hemp plant.”

The business is the first of its kind in the state. (Full Story)
