message from our founder


Over the last few years, I noticed the number of people coming to our nightlife venues & restaurants was on the rise, but the total number of alcoholic beverages sold was steadily decreasing.  I knew that I was drinking less, and about this time I started seeing magazine articles about consumers being “Sober Curious,” for this or that reason.

Then the proverbial light bulb went off.

In 2013, as part of a previous company, I learned everyone has an endocannabinoid system that interacts with cannabinoids. All forms of cannabis contain significant amounts of cannabinoids, and many people believe cannabinoids can provide a therapeutic handshake for one’s own endocannabinoid system. And if your endocannabinoid system is balanced and your receptors are clear, your body just works better and feels better.

So, I started a mission to create a legal beverage using legal cannabinoids that I thought could clear out one’s endocannabinoid system and allow the body to function in a more balanced way. And since you can get cannabinoids from industrial hemp (legalized by the 2018 Farm Bill), and hemp utilizes literally tons (8.8 per acre) of carbon dioxide in photosynthesis, the whole planet wins by people drinking more hemp-derived beverages…as such, clēēn:craft was born.

clēēn:craft carbonated beverages are created with hemp extract and other real, simple ingredients including filtered water, juice concentrates, pure ginger and cane sugar. All clēēn:craft beverages are non- alcoholic, THC free, and made with 100% USA Hemp. We currently offer Lime, Ginger and Cola formulations.

Functionally speaking, most people drink them as a ready-to-drink, spirit-free cocktail or as a healthier natural energy or sport drink replacement.  Others use them as a pre-made mixer for their favorite cocktail with enhanced effect.  Some will start with regular cocktails and then switch to clēēn:craft to finish the night. Many people drink one before bedtime and say they achieve a much sounder sleep than without it.

clēēn:craft products can be found on Amazon Prime, at your favorite restaurants or bars, in some forward-leaning grocery stores or online at We make our clēēn:craft beverages at our experience center and production facility on the corner of 2nd and Bell in downtown Seattle.
