Summer may be coming to an end, but Cann says otherwise — and what they say goes! After a whirlwind of beach days and barbecue, this year’s long hot summer doesn’t have to come to an end. Cann — the better-for-you, social tonic that packs the perfect punch and leaves you feeling refreshed in the heat.
Enjoy your endless summer with the beloved, seasonal Cann flavor – Pineapple Jalapeño! Pineapple Jalapeño delivers a sweet, tart flavor with the tiny kick you need to spice up any occasion. Blend or pour over ice to create a refreshing and unique margarita for any late summer plans you have in mind! But beware, just because summer is still going strong, doesn’t mean that this seasonal flavor will be around forever — so grab it before it’s gone for the season!
Not sold yet? With just a low dose of cannabis (2 mg of THC and 4 mg of CBD), Cann keeps the party going without ever letting the party take over you. Yes, alcohol-free goodness means no hangovers. If you needed more reason to try them out, Cann recently held a flash BOGO sale, that ended on Friday 8/27 at midnight – however, that sale has been extended! Consumers can use the code VIPBOGO for 50% off orders over $99. You can also use this BOGO deal to stock up on Cann’s UNSPIKED beverages — offering Cann’s same classic flavor profiles — minus the cannabis. Check them out for when you don’t want to drink, but still want a great drink.

Cult favorite Bev is #MadeByChicks and offers three delicious white wines:
Sauv Blanc: offering aromatics of crisp green apple, white nectarine and a light, fresh, citrus finish

Bev is a female-forward beverage brand that was founded to change not only the way a product is consumed but the way an industry and culture have operated for generations. In an industry that is almost exclusively masculine, Bev is breaking norms and creating something from the female perspective that is approachable, fun, and consumer-centric. Unlike other canned wines, which tend to use bottom-of-the-barrel grapes, added sugars, and artificial flavors to taste, Bev is a canned wine made from high-quality, central CA grapes.

We recently featured reasons to visit Sonoma County — which could arguably be one reason: wine. The reasons start and end with wine, with all other reasons in-between. However, there’s even more wine to be enjoyed as summer begins its sunset phase.
If the past year taught us anything, it’s that when we have the chance, we should take advantage of the amazing moments life has to offer by going out, exploring the town and seeing friends. This summer, Winc is making that a little bit easier by helping the city of Los Angeles “Bring the Party” through their partnership with the city’s hottest new car service – Ride Alto.
Starting Friday, August 13th at 5 pm (PST) through the end of day on Sunday, August 15th, Angelenos can book their car service through the Ride Alto app using code WINC for 50% off all Los Angeles rides for the weekend! What’s even better? Each ride will be stocked with Winc’s cult favorite Summer Water Rosé droplets, courtesy of Ride Alto, so you can pregame the party right up to the moment you arrive! Whether you’re headed to a friends BBQ, beach picnic or rooftop party, Winc and Ride Alto have you covered to make sure you arrive in style!
Learn more about Winc and learn more about the summer campaign here!
Date of promotion: Friday, August 13th at 5pm PST through Sunday, August 15th, 2021
Offer: 50% off your ride using promo code WINC in Los Angeles only.
Summer Water Droplets: Summer Water Droplets (187ml) will be in the cars for riders sipping pleasure!
*Riders are required to wear a mask during the ride unless you are taking a sip of your Winc wine. *If you forget to put in the promo code at the start of your ride, you can still apply it during your ride – as long as you add the code to the ride before it ends.

Ultimate Ears (from Logitech) and Westbrook Media (Jada Pinkett Smith and Will Smith’s digital content studio) have announced a year-long partnership to celebrate creativity and technology.
The collaboration will leverage Westbrook Media’s creator-driven, innovative storytelling approach by using short films to bridge traditional entertainment with branded content that puts the product at the center of the story. The first project from this partnership will feature Jaden and Willow Smith and focus on the recently launched UE FITS, the world’s first truly wireless earphones with instant custom-fit.
Logitech has made strides in honoring creators this year and, most recently, the brand partnered with TikTok by reimagining the award show experience with its first-ever Logitech Song Breaker Awards, celebrating top creators who changed the face of music in 2020. Ahead of his exclusive performance at the awards, 24KGoldn tried on a pair UE FITS himself.
About Ultimate Ears
Ultimate Ears redefined wireless earphones by recognizing that each person’s ear is unique, and consumers should not have to conform to standard tip sizes of small, medium and large. With Lightform technology, UE FITS mold to fit each person’s ears in under 60 seconds to deliver all-day comfort and an exceptional audio experience. This creative collaboration between Ultimate Ears and Westbrook Media shares this same spirit of innovation and inclusivity.
In addition to the UE FITS campaign, Ultimate Ears will also be participating in Creator Days with Westbrook, where it links talent with digital native creators to produce original social content.

Along with the rising temperatures comes an increased urge for some good old-fashioned backyard barbecue vibes, and refreshing drinks. Cann, the leading cannabis-infused social tonic, relaunched a delicious seasonal flavor on March 15, just in time for Spring: Ginger Lemongrass!
This bright, crisp, THC-infused sparkling tonic is the perfect drink for Spring celebrations, and unlike alcohol-based tonics, will leave you feeling refreshed and reenergized the next morning. Cann tonics are infused with 2mg of THC and 4mg of CBD to create a light, uplifting buzz at a fraction of the calories of a normal drink. Ginger Lemongrass, like all of Cann’s products, are gluten-free, non-GMO, vegan, and contain only organic ingredients.
The launch of Linger Lemongrass comes on the heels of a big year for Cann — they’ve been named the fastest-growing cannabis-infused beverage to date, and take up 24 percent of the cannabis beverage market in California. They’ve also observed YoY growth of over 2,000 percent — and they aren’t slowing down anytime soon! With A-list investors and fans like Gwyneth Paltrow, Kate Hudson, and Rebel Wilson, Cann has cemented itself as one of the best non-alcoholic adult beverages around.
Whether a Spring refresh, or a Summer cool down, Cann comes in a variety of flavorful favorites that are sure to come in handy for your seasonal celebrations, including Lemon Lavender, Blood Orange Cardamom, and Grapefruit Rosemary.
