Frequently Asked Questions
When is it best to drink Vita Coco Infused?
Whenever you need a moment to replenish and soothe. That sounds like a cop-out answer, but we promise it’s not. It’s because that moment is different for everyone. For some, it might be best in the morning before work to help them ease into a Monday. Or the night before to settle the Sunday Scaries. For others, it’s great for unwinding after work and settling in for a Netflix binge.
What is broad spectrum hemp?
Broad-spectrum is a hemp extract that has 0.0% THC, but contains CBD while also containing other beneficial cannabinoids and phytonutrients. Translation: everything works in harmony to help deliver soothing benefits that aid in the reduction of stress and anxiety — without the high.
So will Vita Coco Infused get me… you know… high?
Nope. No way. Not a chance. Our beverage is made with broad-spectrum hemp, which contains 0.0% THC, so there is absolutely no psychoactive effect.
Who is Plant People?
Plant People is a respected and trusted brand in the world of consumer hemp products. Their mission is to empower people to make alternative and more positive choices when it comes to healing the body, mind and planet. Like those of us at Vita Coco, they believe in the power that natural, whole ingredients hold, whether that’s coconut, hemp, or other plants. Oh, they’re also our friends too. They’re wonderful people who we love spending time with.
Why did Vita Coco work with Plant People to create Vita Coco Infused?
Both Vita Coco and Plant People were looking to enter the hemp-infused beverage world. More importantly, we both wanted to do it right. While Vita Coco had a hunch that hemp would be a great complement to our coconut water, we lacked the hemp expertise to really know for sure. We’re coconut experts, after all, not hemp experts. At the same time, our friends at Plant People saw an opportunity to bring hemp into delicious and refreshing drinks but didn’t really know where to begin either. When we combined both our expertise, our shared values, and our shared mission to give back to our respective farming communities, it was a match made in hemp heaven.
How did you decide on the Vita Coco Infused flavors you have?
We know they’re a little different from what you expect from a coconut water company. We wanted Vita Coco Infused to take people ‘there’ while still being completely delicious. The idea was to make a drink that was earthy, yet refreshing. We tried putting potting soil in lemonade but that didn’t work. Hannah in marketing had the brilliant idea of combining citrus with spice — and that’s how we got our flavors! Thanks, Hannah!
Can you tell me more about where you get your hemp from?
Gladly. Our suppliers source organically-grown hemp from Colorado. The whole plant is used to extract hemp oil, which is then further turned into a unique blend for Vita Coco Infused.
Do you lab test the hemp used to make Vita Coco Infused?
The hemp is tested at several steps in the process so that it meets our standards, including tests that verify that there is not any THC, residue solvents or heavy metals present in our oil. (That’s heavy metal as in actual impurities, not the music genre.)
Does the hemp have any certifications I should know about?
Our hemp is Non-GMO, Kosher, Halal and Gluten-Free. It’s also manufactured in the USA and organically grown.
