Kona Gold Energy Drink is much like a traditional energy drink such as Red Bull, but they also add hemp seed protein powder to the mix.
Kona Gold doesn't contain THC and is made from non-THC producing hemp plants.

The company, Kona Gold LLC, recently sent me a few cans for review.
Kona Gold Review
These hemp infused energy drinks are becoming pretty common and I was curious to see what, if any, difference hemp made to the taste or effect.
Kona Gold's flavor is a pretty standard energy drink flavor so if you like original Red Bull then you'll like Kona Gold. I was hoping for something unique, but I guess they were going for a proven flavor profile.
Energy Ingredients and Effect
Kona Gold contains the usual energy drink ingredients like caffeine, taurine, B vitamins, and glucuronolactone as well as hemp seed protein powder.
The hemp ingredient is pretty far down on the list and it isn't even enough to register as a gram of protein, so I'm not sure the concentration would have any effect.
I certainly couldn't perceive anything out of the ordinary. It had the same effect as a can of Red Bull in my opinion.
All in all, these hemp-based drinks are a bit of a novelty, but, they are really just pretty standard energy drinks in reality.
Kona Gold is recommended for healthy adults only.
