    Better Than Booze Launches Hemp-Derived THC and CBD Mocktails in Nashville

    The following is a press release:

    Nashville-based beverage line, Better Than Booze, has launched flavor-forward, enhanced spectrum, CBD mocktails, founded with a mission to revolutionize social drinking as we know it. Created using hemp-derived CBD and THC, Better Than Booze provides the same mood-elevating magic of alcohol, but with a delightfully light, yet generously flavored taste, and without the negative effects of a hangover. Offering a pleasant, mild buzz with each can, similar to that of a glass of wine, these plant-based beverages are shifting the narrative on social drinking as a low-calorie, all-naturally flavored, refreshing alternative to alcohol, and under the federal legal limit of .3% THC. Currently available in 24 stores and counting in Nashville and surrounding areas, Better Than Booze is making a splash this fall with invigorating flavors, all inspired by classic cocktails we all know and love: Rosemary-infused Grapefruit Paloma, Elderberry-infused Gin & Tonic and Mint Mojito with Lime. Editor’s note: We are currently sampling all three flavors. Keep an eye out for our review!

    The emulsion that powers Better Than Booze uses a naturally derived surfactant system that provides minimal flavor impact, while having enough stability to handle traditional beverage manufacturing. The process uses saponins and lysolecithins from natural plant sources, and introduces them to extremely high pressure homogenization to create the nano emulsion. The hemp extract used is fully traceable back to Certified Organic biomass. Better Than Booze uses a patent-pending solvent-less refinement technique to enhance the minor cannabinoid content, resulting in a more impactful effect for consumers. Co-founder and CEO of Better Than Booze, Drea Groeschel, is not only a lifelong entrepreneur and local Nashvillian, but also a mom who sought to find a way to unwind at the end of the day without the foggy haze of alcohol and its negative effects. In 2022, Better Than Booze was born from this desire to swap out her regular glass of wine for a “Better” alternative.

    Drea Groeschel passionately shares, “My life is so busy with work and family, and trying to stay healthy. Sometimes it feels like an impossible juggle. So it was clear to me that moderating my alcohol intake was a big step in creating a healthier, more energetic lifestyle where I could be at my best for my family and coworkers. Better Than Booze is a new form of relaxation for me, the ‘ah ha!’ moment that I want other parents and working professionals to know about. It feels great to drink a bubbly water-based beverage that is infused by a plant, but tastes like a cocktail. Can’t get better than that!”

    With Better Than Booze mocktails, Groeschel strives to flip the script on “stoner culture” by showing that moms, parents, and working professionals alike can enjoy a hemp-derived beverage in a healthy, safe manner to achieve a mild and pleasant buzz. 

    This fall, Better Than Booze is revolutionizing the shopping experience, implementing the first-ever Tokinomo robotic point of sale system to be utilized in the United States, beginning in Nashville. While consumers are used to flashy end-cap displays, rarely does that end-cap provide an experience with motion and voice activation. Tokinomo robots provide an interactive experience through motion sensors which wiggle cans as shoppers walk by, followed by voice activations from several familiar voices including award-winning country music duo, Maddie & Tae, and Nashville sports announcer and radio personality, Paul McCann, among many others. These cutting edge robots are changing the landscape of retail, one can at a time.

    Better Than Booze is currently available in the below stores, with plans to expand online and across the nation very soon. To learn more about Better Than Booze and find a retailer near you, visit
