When will this Day be celebrated? August 20th of each calendar year.
What is National 820 Day?
Technically it’s “Water-Soluble Cannabinoid Consumption Day”, but it’s more widely known as “Drink Cannabis Day” – A day where consumers enjoy cannabis-infused products that use water-soluble emulsion technology for better taste, faster onset, and more consistent cannabis experiences. Cannabis can be consumed for recreational and therapeutic purposes, and water-soluble cannabinoids allow for more socially acceptable and discreet methods to consume and enjoy safely.
This is a day for us to do a collective “cheers” to appreciate the multitude of applications for the plant and celebrate how it has improved our lives.
Why is this Day being created?
To bring awareness to the advances in cannabis-infused products for consumers to safely enjoy cannabis (in any setting). Water-soluble technology solves historical issues that have plagued the cannabis industry. Infused products now offer the following benefits to consumers*:
- Better tasting edibles with no cannabis taste or smell
- Faster onset (10-15 minutes vs 90 minutes), with a shorter duration (no more 3+ hour hazes you can’t get out of)
- Consistent Cannabis Experienced (a result of Accurate Dosing)
- Safe Ingredients
Cannabis, as a whole, has 420 (on 4/20), and oil-based cannabis products have 710 (on 7/10, which is OIL flipped upside down and backwards). So why can’t products infused with water-soluble cannabis compounds have a day?
August 20th; or “820”, is based on water’s chemical composition, H2O – H is the 8th letter of the alphabet, and because of the 2O, it aligns with the original cannabis consumption holiday, 420.
Water-soluble emulsion technology is for beverages, food, supplements, and personal care products to make consuming cannabinoids (THC, CBD, and other cannabinoids) easier, safer, and more fun
How should this Day be observed?
Go and enjoy cannabis-infused products (beverages, edibles, topicals, capsules/pressed pills, etc.) that use water-soluble emulsion technology at social gatherings, river floating, watching movies/TV, even relaxing/recovery self-care days! Just like your favorite mocktail or cocktail, you can make your 820 any way you like!
Not all emulsion technologies are created equal. SōRSE Technology is a leading water-soluble technology for functional ingredients that utilized safe and commonly used food grade materials, with no bitter blockers added.
